RandomX Intel CPU mining performance | benchmarks mining Monero
So i have been starting to test some hardware for RandomX. What i think i will be doing is upgrading my current rigs with high end CPUs. And do dual mining, mine ethereum with graphic cards and monero with CPU for example with the same mining rig. Think this would be the most optimal way, to not spend any more money on new hardware, just the CPU. Only problem i face is that, by benchmark testing [https://randomx.monerobenchmarks.info/](https://randomx.monerobenchmarks.info/) . Ryzen latest CPUs seems to be most efficient when it comes down to RandomX mining. But most of my mining rigs are built on Intel boards. I have couple ideas what i think i will implement in my next tutorials.
But in this i want to go trough some Intel CPUs and see what are the benchmarks. The only thing i forgot measure the power usage in mining process. But this is not a big deal, you can look up CPU power usage by its maximum performance. Also in testing i didn’t use any OC on CPUs, all of them are stock. I have been testing these CPU on [hiveOS](https://mineshop.eu/2018/07/27/how-to-install-hiveos-and-setup-for-mining/), where you can launch multiple miners simultaneously. And this allows me to easy mine different coins with same hardware from one rig.
1. Intel Celeron G3900 , it is one of the cheapest CPU what im using for most on my mining rig builds.This CPU retail price is about 40€. Performance/benchmark – **450 h/s**. Which is about the same as one RX 570 on new RandomX mining Algorithm.
2. Intel Pentium G4400 , also one of the low end CPU from Intel. This CPU retail price is about 50€. Performance/benchmark – **725 h/s**. Which is equivalent about the same as two RX 570 on new RandomX mining Algorithm.
3. Intel i5 7600. This CPU retail price is about 280€ . Performance/benchmark – **1.63 kh/s**. Which is equivalent about the same as two Vega 56 on new RandomX mining Algorithm.
