New XMRig 5.10.0 with AstroBWT Support for AMD Graphics Cards
- Created: Tuesday, 24 March 2020 07:10
The latest version of XMRig 5.10.0 includes support for the AstroBWT algorithm for AMD GPUs, in addition to the existing support for mining on the CPU, as well as some optimization for the algorithm used to mine the DERO coin after its recent hard fork this month. Another important change in the new version of the miner is that the cn / gpu algorithm is now disabled by default and will be removed in a future major update of the miner (v6.X.X), as well as in the main update of the TLS (Transport Layer Security) subsystem. As regards the performance of AMD video cards in mining on the AstroBWT algorithm compared to mining on the central processor, the AMD Radeon RX 580 8 GB video card seems to have a lower hashrate compared to even a mid-range CPU. And such a high-performance processor as the AMD Ryzen 3900X can be 4 times! faster than the RX 580 GPU. Therefore, in the end, mining on an AMD GPU may not be so attractive to AstroBWT.
