For the record, I am not doing CPU mining now.Is Raptoreum profitable enough to justify investment?
for monero and cpu is L1, L2 and L3 cache sizes important.If I am interest in xmr mining again,
Any CPU you would recommend?
So BenchMark doesn't have Alibaba's 128-Core Armv9, (or any of the crazy high RSIC core base machines) I have seen one of the bata boxes with 12 CPUs in one chassis that is like 1536 cores, so it might be a little slower than it would make up with the fire hose of processing.for monero and cpu is L1, L2 and L3 cache sizes important.
if you have a cpu with 32 cores or threads, but e.g. L3 cache of 32 MB, then you can mine with 16 cores or threads.
but if your L3 cache is 64MB, then you can mine with full 32 cores of threads.
mostly zen2 cpu are very suitable for monero mining because of cache size's and cpu cores relations.
but....i wouldn't recommend to buy hardware for monero mining, because hardware price is very high and ROI is very long.
