Monero CPU Mining: Mac Mini 2018 3.2 GHz 6-Core i7 / 32GB Ram Earnings + Hashrates + XMRig

Post by macminergod »

This is likely the last Intel Mac Mini (2018) Apple will make. It is the top of the line 6-Core 3.2GHz. The Mac Mini's onboard Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB GPU is not supported with OpenCL or CUDA so you won't be able to mine with it. GPU mining with this Mac Mini will only work with a compatible eGPU.

Where is this dashboard produced from?

My M1 mini with 16gb ram averages 2300 h/s and uses about a 1/3rd of the power and costs less to buy.

However I’m in a place where I don’t pay for power, so I’ve been debating on buying another M1 or the intel 6 core for a little more $ to get the additional 500 h/s

Thoughts?

This is from the miner pool. I'd wait for the newer MacMini M1 or M2 supposed to be released which is supposed to be a beast. There is rumors Apple may cancel it though, so time will tell.
