I have been a ETH miner for a little bit, mostly running a machine in the garage. I am thinking of buying 1-2 machine for zcash mining to give it a try since CPU based is cheaper. I am thinking an i5 or i7 around the same clock frequency. i5 is really fast, just doesn't have hyperthreading which is equiv of 2 threads per core potentially. Does that help the algo run faster? So what do you guys think? an i5 or i7 around the same frequency for Zcash CPU mining? Or is one of those 6 cores better?
Thanks for reading.
