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 3.20.3

Algorithm: m7m

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 18 public results since 29 November 2022 with the latest data as of 15 August 2023.

Additional benchmark metrics will come after OpenBenchmarking.org has collected a sufficient data-set.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (Cpuminer-Opt 3.20.3 - Algorithm: m7m) has an average run-time of 3 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.
