What hardware should I use to mine zcash?


#1

What hardware should I use to mine zcash? CPU or GPU, what's the factors to affect the hash rate?


#2

Memory speed (and an adequate cpu) is the most important factor. What's unclear (at least to me) is whether overall memory bandwidth or low latency gives the best result.


#3

What about GPU with 4GB memory, like Radeon R9 290 or Radeon R9 380, CPU is Intel i3


#4

It is only the last two revisions of zcash that have started using the Equihash algorithm. If / when gpu support is available is unclear at the moment.


#5

Most miners mine coins with GPU, it's more powerful than CPU, hope it can be supported soon before it launches.
