CPUminer-opt - mining on the CPU, supports 70 algorithms

We rarely talk about mining cryptocurrency on central processors due to low interest miners, since good results in mining show only quite expensive CPUs, which still significantly lose to video cards at a price per hash. Therefore, in mining rigs, processors of the initial maximum of the average level are used to support the work of video cards, but not as for independent mining. For mining enthusiasts or for owners of a large number of CPUs, it will be interesting to learn that there are specialized miners for CPUs with support for 70 mining algorithms! CPUminer-opt is just such a unique product with the help of which you can mining almost any cryptocurrency you like on your CPU. CPUminer-opt has a long history of growing from 2016 to version

Asic Bitmain Antminer DR5 - 34TH and 1800W on Blake (14r) Decred algorithm

asic bitmain antminer dr5

The Chinese leader in the production of asic miners Bitmain never ceases to amaze, releasing new items one after the other with a qualitatively new level of performance and energy efficiency. Literally at the end of September, we wrote about Antminer DR3 with a HashRate of 7.8TH/s and 1410W (energy efficiency 181 W/TH). Exactly two months have passed and we already have a new asic under the same Blake algorithm (14r), but with a performance of 34TH at 1800W or more than 3 times the energy efficient asic miner Antminer DR5 (53W at TH).

Asic Bitmain Antminer D5 - 115Gh and 1566W on the X11 algorithm

The company Bitmain began selling Asic Miner Antminer D5 for mining cryptocurrency on the X11 algorithm (Dash, StartCoin, Influxcoin). Compared to its acclaimed predecessor Antminer D3, the new product offers improved energy efficiency 4.5 times at a nominal hash rate of 119GH / s instead of 17GH / s and a power consumption of 1566W. Considering such a qualitative leap in between generations, it is not surprising that the price of Antminer D3 dropped to a ridiculous 39 USD, which is comparable to the cost of the two fans installed on this asika. The cost of the D5, as it should be, is set in accordance with the current realities of the market at 8,200 yuan or 1,180 USD.

Like all new Asics from the company Bitmain Antminer D5 is made in the new building and a pre-installed power supply.
