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.

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X AMD Ryzen 5 5600X
Unknown Unknown
Both processors compared here were brought onto the market by AMD in the fourth quarter of 2020 and are based on the Zen 3 (Vermeer) architecture manufactured in 7 nanometer technology.

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is an 8-core processor from the Ryzen 7 series from the AMD CPU range. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, on the other hand, has only 6 cores and comes from the Ryzen 5 series of the AMD CPU program.

In terms of clock frequencies, the two processors are quite close to each other. The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X has a base clock rate of 3.80 gigahertz and can increase the clock rate up to 4.70 gigahertz in turbo mode. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X clocks a little lower with its 6 cores. The base clock frequency is 3.70 gigahertz and the maximum turbo clock is 4.60 gigahertz, i.e. 0.1 gigahertz each below the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X. Both processors can be overclocked and support hyperthreading technology.

An internal graphics unit is not [/ b] integrated in both processors , so a dedicated graphics card is required when operating a PC with one of these two processors.

Both processors have 2 memory channels that can be used to control RAM modules of the DDR4 type with a clock rate of up to 3200 megahertz. A total of up to 128 GB of working memory can be installed together with the processors and working memory with automatic error correction (ECC working memory) is also supported.

To connect the aforementioned dedicated graphics card or other expansion cards, a total of 20 PCI Express lines of type 4.0 are available to both processors.

There is still a big difference in power consumption. The 8-core AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processor has a TDP of 105 watts, which means that it consumes more power than the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, which has a TDP of 65 watts.
