MacBook Air M1 2020: XMRig Results

Post by macminergod »

Using XMRig 6.12.2 build for ARM Apple Mac's to mine XMR through Unmineable pool using CPU. XMRig is not compatible with ARM GPU's OPENCL and CUDA at this time. It seems the latest version of Big Sur (11.4) on the MacBook Air M1 draws around 10 more Watts of power compared to Big Sur version 11.3. I think we need to wait for the more powerful ARM processors (GPU and CPU) before we start seeing any worthwhile earnings. Our MacBook Air barely emitted heat and was only slighlty warm after about 25 minutes of mining. See our guide to install XMRig here.
