Cpuminer-Opt

Cpuminer-Opt is a fork of cpuminer-multi that carries a wide range of CPU performance optimizations for measuring the potential cryptocurrency mining performance of the CPU/processor with a wide variety of cryptocurrencies. The benchmark reports the hash speed for the CPU mining performance for the selected cryptocurrency.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark cpuminer-opt.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Cpuminer-Opt 3.18

Algorithm: x25x

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 485 public results since 29 September 2021 with the latest data as of 27 September 2022.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.

Does It Scale Well With Increasing Cores?

Yes, based on the automated analysis of the collected public benchmark data, this test / test settings does generally scale well with increasing CPU core counts. Data based on publicly available results for this test / test settings, separated by vendor, result divided by the reference CPU clock speed, grouped by matching physical CPU core count, and normalized against the smallest core count tested from each vendor for each CPU having a sufficient number of test samples and statistically significant data.
