I had to build grin-miner without the mean plugins on Linux, because of the old CPU that don’t support the AVX instructions. After an hour the miner showed a GPS of 0.0017 (AMD Phenom II x4 @ 2ghz 4GB DDR2).
Make it sense to put a RTX 2080 Ti into this computer? Is CUDA without AVX possible and how fast will it run?
Thank you for your help.
- the Bminer
- AMD Athlon™ II X2 255 Processor
- GTX 1070
- Slackware Linux
- latest Cuda and Nvidia binary driver.
Alternative is the Grin Gold Miner. It runs very well on this old system.
Result is 4.24 G/s and CPU load 0.2%. Rust and grin are not installed! Better use the Bminer, grin miner for Nvidia can’t be compiled on old cpus.
Both Bminer and GrinGoldMiner are for the Cuckaroo29.
*** I don’t know about 2080Ti and C31!
I have compiled grin-miner 1.02 without avx by disabling the option in the compile script.
Without tuning I get on AMD Phenom II @ 2.4ghz, 4GB DDR2 and RTX 2070 @ 125 Watt: 3.55 GPS
