贴有标签的帖子'Radeon RX VEGA 64

Yesterday we have posted some first impressions andAMD Radeon RX Vega 64与Ethash和Equihash的初步结果现在是时候得到更多的结果了。We ran a quick benchmark using the latest NiceHash Miner Legacy version 1.8.1.1 Pre-release 3.While the VEGA 64 may not perform outstanding for more memory intensive algorithms like the ones used by Ethereum (ETH) and Zcash (ZEC) it does perform very well in more GPU intensive algorithms.As expected dual-mining does work well and provides a nice bit of extra profit when compared to single Ethereum or Zcash only mining.As you can see however some of the miners included in the NiceHash Miner Legacy pack are having trouble working on the AMD Radeon RX VEGA 64 for the moment as not all of them apparently support properly the new GPU.

AMD's new Radeon RX VEGA 64 GPU is now officially out in the wild and we have some first impressions from it to share regarding crypto mining.关于新AMD Vega的采矿业绩,有各种各样的信息和谣言,but since we got out hands on one we are going to share what are the actual out of the box results that we got from it.AMD Vega GPU中使用的新HBM2内存可能是新产品线中最有趣的部分,but unfortunately out of the box it does not do great in memory intensive algorithms.当然,从AMD的Polaris系列中我们都知道,通过一些调整和修改,额外的性能很可能会提供给矿工,but that could take some time.

Probably the most important performance that people what to know about is the hashrate for mining Ethereum (ETH) and other crypto coins based on the Ethash algorithm.Unfortunately the out of the box performance from Radeon RX VEGA 64 using the latest Claymore Dual Eth miner that comes with official support for Vega is just around 31-32 MHS.We've seen claims of much higher performance being theoretically possible,但是,我们还没有确认这些说法是真实的还是只是猜测。The not so great thing is that this hashrate is achieved with pretty high power consumption and the higher the temperature of the GPU goes,the lower the performance drops and it is really easy for the air cooler VEGA 64 to get hot.

Here is the situation with Zcash (ZEC) mining using the new Radeon RX VEGA 64 GPU from AMD,大约475-480小时/秒。The not so great performance in these two more memory intensive algorithms,然而,即使有了hbm2记忆,也不是最令人担忧的事情。What we are more concerned with AMD's new Radeon RX VEGA 64 GPUs is the fact that they are power hungry GPUs and quickly get hot,因此,在7天24小时的采矿中适当冷却它们可能有点困难,at least for the air cooled model.The amount of power used does not justify the level of performance we get for mining out of the box at this point…

您可以说,新的Radeon RX Vega 64 gpu开箱即用,在性能上与超频Nvidia GTX 1070也可以为ETH和Zec矿业提供的性能非常相似。The AMD GPU however does it with significantly more power used when compared to what the Nvidia card requires to provide very similar performance for mining (double the power for the VEGA).As far as gaming goes,the Radeon RX VEGA 64 is apparently closer to GTX 1080 in terms of performance,但是它仍然比Nvidia卡消耗更多的能量。

尚待观察的是,新Vega GPU的初始可用性将如何,实际定价将如何考虑到矿业公司的需求可能不会那么高,though you never know… with market prices of Polaris GPUs at the level they are available now the official recommended price of the VEGA 64 does seem unreasonably low,因此,可以肯定的是,预期初始价格会更高。On the other hand the Radeon RX VEGA 64 could also do better in more GPU intensive algorithms than it is doing for memory intensive ones.使用一个内存密集型算法和一个GPU密集型算法进行双挖掘的选择也可能是非常有吸引力的选择。即使只是内存密集型挖掘算法的性能也不太好。
