    Phoronix: Monero/XMR Mining On Threadripper With Multi-Channel Memory

    Phoronix reader Thomas Frech has shared with us another article on Monero/XMR cryptocurrency mining performance with AMD Threadripper. Thsi follows his recent guest posts of mining Ethereum with Threadrippers and AMD Vega GPUs, Ethereum and Monero mining on the same systems, and the AMDGPU-PRO 17.40 crypto mining boost...

    Very cool man - keep up the good investigatory work - may all your coins be mined!

      Yeah, but just don't go very deep. You don't want to find out what the dwarfs discovered deep down there.

        I wrote a small script for starting it on different cpu's(my rig is a dual socket xeon)
        First you have to install numactrl and then run it like this. I have not benched it so I don't really know if its faster or not.
        numactl --cpunodebind=0 --membind=0 /root/git/xmr-stak-cpu/bin/xmr-stak-cpu /root/git/xmr-stak-cpu/bin/config.txt &
        numactl --cpunodebind=1 --membind=1 /root/git/xmr-stak-cpu/bin/xmr-stak-cpu /root/git/xmr-stak-cpu/bin/config2.txt &

            Nice but lets not take this special case as an indication of how memory impacts every high performance computing need.

              as a miner you can save a lot of money by just use 2 dimms instead of 4 dimms for all 4 ram channels.

                Please test the hardware SHA for Ryzen with cpuminer-opt.

                https://github.com/JayDDee/cpuminer-opt

                The following algos use hardware SHA

                hmq1725 lbry sha256t skein myr-groestl m7m
                for i in hmq1725 sha256t lbry skein myr-gr m7m; do ./cpuminer --quiet --time-limit=30 --benchmark -a $i; done
