Monero Hashrate kH/s

The crypto currency Monero has been using the RandomX algorithm since November 2019. This PoW (proof of work) algorithm can only efficiently be calculated using a processor (CPU) or a graphics card (GPU). The CryptoNight algorithm was used for Monero until November 2019, but it could be calculated using ASICs. RandomX benefits from a high number of CPU cores, cache and a fast connection of the memory via as many memory channels as possible. Tested with XMRig v6.x under the operation system HiveOS.

Unknown Unknown
In this comparison, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G, which was released in the second quarter of 2021, is compared with the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, which was released at the end of 2020. Both processors come from the 4th generation of Ryzen processors from AMD and are therefore based on the Zen 3 architecture. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600G is already based on the improved Zen 3 architecture with the code name Cezanne, while the Vermeer architecture is still used in the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X.

Both processors have 6 physical cores and support the Hyper-Threading-Technology with which up to 12 threads are available. The clock frequency of the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G is 3.90 gigahertz, which is up to in turbo mode. 4.40 gigahertz. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X has a slightly lower base clock of 3.70 gigahertz, but can clock with up to 4.60 gigahertz in turbo mode.

The processors are manufactured in the 7 nanometer process, are based on the AMD socket "AM4" and are used exclusively in the desktop / server area. AMD specifies the thermal design power (TDP) for both processors as 65 watts and the processors only start to clock down at a core temperature of 95 ° C.

The AMD Ryzen 5 5600G supports the use of up to 64 gigabytes of RAM of the DDR4-3200 type. With the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, up to 128 gigabytes of RAM of the same type can be operated. The latter processor also supports the use of working memory modules with automatic error correction (ECC working memory). A total of 24 PCI-Express lines of the third generation are integrated in the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G. In the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, 20 Generation 4 PCI Express lines are already used.

Only the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G offers an internal graphics unit, so whoever opts for the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X must also use a dedicated graphics card.
