Mining with a GPU


#1

Is there much value to using a GPU versus a CPU to mine?
I plan on giving it a try, just curious what I might expect to find.

Thanks,
Paul

Well that ended quickly. My CAPS (cheap-ass power supply) doesn’t have the power cables to support my GPU.

But I did more research and it turns out that while a GPU doesn’t “calculate” anything faster, it can be used so that you have more threads to read more drives simultaneously. So if your CPU has 4 threads and you have 8 drives, the GPU could be twice as fast (in simple terms).

Hope that helps someone.

Thanks for putting that information out on the forum :slight_smile:
