Hello fellow miners,
I’m planning to use my Evga SR-x double CPU board with two xenon E5s. Since Zcash is programmed to be mined with CPUs, do I have to configure special settings in Linux or the Zcash protocol? Will it make a difference if I use a double CPU MB to mine Zcash more efficiently?
The xenons are quad core, with two CPUs can get 8 core processing.
GPU mining of Zcash is looking like the way to go.
You may want to hold off on this rig for a little bit until we know more.
Also, the line is Xeon, not Xenon
You might want to keep track of the Zcash Slack channel. And the mining channel too.
Also, it appears that bi-processor MB share the memory channel (to be confirmed)
If the memory bandwidth is shared, no matter how many cores/CPU you add, you will not get better performance (actually worse perfs once you max the bus)
How do I get to the slack channels
