I have an i3-2120 3.3ghz It’s been running 24/7 at ~4.2Sol/s for over 2 months now and I’ve yet to get anything.
In the beginning of zcash I had an old Xeon E5430 that I started mining zcash on. It averaged 3Sol/s. I never got any zec with it either.
My next rig is a 8 core Xeon I’m going to have 32g mem to start when I have the money to buy it.
The question I have is cpu mining a waste of time?
In my case sure seems like it.
I’ve been mining with slushpool from almost the beginning. I average about $3 a week with an old antminer s3.
Slushpool claims he going to support zec but nothing has showed up yet on how to do so.
Since I’m building a new rig should I switch to GPU mining? If so what is out there for GPU’s that will generate some thing as fast as my bitcoin rig?
