Which miner is good for Xeon E5520?

I checked the instruction set. It does not have support for avx2.


for linux: Releases · kost/nheqminer · GitHub

for win: Releases · nicehash/nheqminer · GitHub


I downloaded the source code and checked the readme file and use the following to compile:

sudo apt-get install cmake build-essential libboost-all-dev
git clone --recursive GitHub - kost/nheqminer: Currently fastest public CPU Equihash/zcash/zec miner
cd nheqminer/nheqminer
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DXENON=1 …

(Note: for the fastest miner, it is recommended to use cmake -DXENON=2 .. )

For -DXENON=1 option, I got

Speed [300 sec]: 2.74667 H/s, 5.31667 Sol/s
Speed [300 sec]: 2.74667 H/s, 5.39333 Sol/s

Speed [300 sec]: 2.79333 H/s, 5.22 Sol/s
Speed [300 sec]: 2.82333 H/s, 5.31 Sol/s

For -DXENON=2 option, I got

Speed [300 sec]: 2.82 H/s, 5.1 Sol/s
Speed [300 sec]: 2.82333 H/s, 5.03667 Sol/s

It has similar H/s but different Sol/s. Should I choose -DXENON=1 option?


go with dxenon 1,i think 2 for avx2

also very interesting … i got 6.5—7 sols with i5 3337u :slight_smile:
