Raspberry Pi Mining


#1

Hi all,

The gitlab project says it only supports 64bit processors. Is there something different for ARM devices (like raspberry pis) or is everyone just working on a custom miner?

Raspberry Pi 3 is supposed to be 64bit...

It would take either more effort to patch or perhaps a fresh implementation but there's no reason any device with adequate address space and fast enough CPU and memory can't do the job.

By my tests with a standalone miner, the 32bit platforms give only 70% of the performance of 32bit platforms, at least for x86.

ARM 32bit works just fine, but so far all the devices i found with enough memory were too slow.
