AMD Ryzen 7 5800X - Monero Mining Performance, RandomX Mining Algorithm
- Created: Thursday, 21 January 2021 01:23
Earlier on the pages of the Cryptoage.com website, we already gave information on the performance of the new AMD Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 9 5900X processors in Monero mining, but we did not deservedly miss the Ryzen 7 5800X processor. Today we will fix this oversight by testing the 5800X on the RandomX mining algorithm. The Ryzen 7 5800X is an 8-core processor with 16 threads and 32MB of L2 cache, generation ZEN3, made using 7nm technology.
First test on standard settings without overclocking with DDR4 3200Mhz CL14 memory
In this operating mode, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processor showed a hashrate of around 8600H/s with a power consumption of 128W
The second stage of testing is carried out with the Precision boost overdrive function and AMD Curve Optimizer enabled with a value of minus 13.
The memory is clocked at 3800MHz CL16.
In this mode, we got an increase in hash rate by 17% to 10100H/s with an increase in processor power consumption by 11% from 128W to 142W
Conclusion: New AMD processors of the ZEN3 generation do not provide a significant increase in performance in mining the Monero cryptocurrency compared to the previous generation ZEN2 (3800X), but they cost significantly more. Therefore, buying a Ryzen 5000 for mining is definitely not worth it, because if there is a gain in hash, then within the error of 1-2%.
