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 Intel Core i7-10700K
Unknown Unknown
Here, 2 processors from 2020 are compared with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X and the Intel Core i7-10700K. The Intel Core i7-10700K came on the market in the second quarter of 2020 whereas the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X was only released in the fourth quarter.

But not only that the processors were published relatively close to each other makes the comparison useful, because both processors are 8-core processors that can be overclocked as well as support hyperthreading and the clocking is quite similar. The base clock frequency of both the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X and the Intel Core i7-10700K is 3.80 gigahertz. In turbo mode, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X clocks a little less than the Intel Core i7-10700K with a maximum of 4.70 gigahertz. As the AMD processor, in contrast to the Intel comparison partner, is manufactured using the 7 nanometer process instead of the 14 nanometer process, it not only compensates for the missing clock rate, but is even ahead in terms of performance.

In addition, the power consumption suffers from the larger manufacturing process, whereby the Intel Core i7-10700K is specified with a TDP of 125 watts, but the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X manages with 105 watts.

The biggest disadvantage of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X compared to the Intel Core i7-10700K is that it does not have an internal graphics unit (iGPU) and you therefore need a dedicated graphics card.

Both processors have 2 memory channels through which they can control up to 128 gigabytes of DDR4 RAM. The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X supports clock rates of up to 3200 megahertz, whereas the Intel Core i7-10700K only officially supports clock rates of up to 2933 megahertz. In addition, ECC working memory modules can also be installed in the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X.
