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.

To trade Monero you can register with the crypto broker Kraken.com. We've been customers there for a few years now and have been very satisfied so far.

Intels Core i7-10700 is an 8-core processor that can process 16 threads simultaneously (Hyper-Threading). The desktop processors base clock is 2.9 GHz. In multi-core Turbo, the Intel Core i7-10700 can operate with up to 4.6 GHz. A single core can clock a bit higher with 4.8 GHz.

The 10th generation of Intel Core i processors is based on the Comet Lake architecture, which is still manufactured in a much improved 14 nm process at Intel. The processor has a 16 MB level 3 cache and has a TDP of 65 watts. However, the processors energy consumption is around 150 watts under full load of all cores in practice.

The Intel Core i7-10700 can address up to 128 GB of working memory (DDR4-2933) in two memory channels. The processor requires a motherboard with the LGA 1200 socket, which will be introduced in 2020. This socket has more contacts than the older LGA 1151-2 socket and is supposed to support up to 10 cores. Intel is also said to have paid attention to better stability in the power supply.

The iGPU in the Comet Lake processors is still the somewhat older Intel UHD Graphics 630 with 24 execution units from 2017. The iGPU clocks the Intel Core i7-10700 with up to 1.2 GHz, which is the maximum clock of the iGPU. The computing power (FP32) of the internal graphics card is 461 GFLOPS, which is not really much in 2020. However, the graphics cards performance is sufficient for older games in Full HD resolution. Gaming PCs are equipped with a dedicated graphics card anyway.

The Intel Core i7-10700 was introduced in the 2nd quarter of 2020. The processor is not overclockable, but it is also available with a free multiplier in another variant (Intel Core i7-10700K). Furthermore, the processor is also available without an internal graphics card as Intel Core i7-10700F at a slightly lower price.
