CPU versus GPU


  • administrators

    As you know, it is possible to mine with your CPU but it is also possible to mine with your GPU (graphic card), or both at the same time. GPU is more efficient because it contains a lot of "cores" and can make huge parallel calculations. Of course, some algorithms like SHA256D, SCRYPT, X11 have ability to be mine with ASIC miner, dedicated device for this task only.

    I had fun doing a little comparative table between cpuminer-opt and ccminer. All algorithms weren't testable.
