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.

Blender 2.81 (bmw27)

Blender is a free 3D graphics software for rendering (creating) 3D bodies, which can also be textured and animated in the software. The Blender benchmark creates predefined scenes and measures the time (s) required for the entire scene. The shorter the time required, the better. We selected bmw27 as the benchmark scene.

The AMD Ryzen 7 3700X is an 8-core processor with SMT (16 threads). It is manufactured in 7 nm and uses the AMD Zen 2 CPU core design. Compared to the newer AMD Ryzen 5 5600X (6 cores, 12 threads), the performance of the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X under single-core load is around 15 to 20 percent behind the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X.

The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X benefits from the IPC increase introduced by AMD with Ryzen 5xxx (Zen 3). This is based on a new core design and a change in the cache topology. The raw output per cycle could thus be increased by up to 20 percent. Both CPUs can access a 32 MB level 3 cache. The processors both fit in the AM4 socket from AMD.

In applications that use more than just one CPU core, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is only about 10 percent behind the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, which has two more CPU cores. In most PC games, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X delivers better performance (more FPS), since PC games benefit from a high CPU clock in most cases.

Both processors support 128 GB of RAM. AMD officially specifies DDR4-3200 as the maximum, per D.O.C.P. Overclocking profile or through manual overclocking of the main memory and the memory controller, however, higher clock frequencies are also possible. DDR4-3600 can reach both processors without problems in most cases. The support of two memory channels doubles the memory bandwidth to up to 60 GB per second. This requires at least two memory modules that are operated in dual-channel mode.

AMD specifies the TDP for both processors with 65 watts, in practice the smaller AMD Ryzen 5 5600X requires a lot less energy. Thanks to the modern production technology from TSMC, where both processors are manufactured in 7 nm, the CPUs are very efficient.
