MacBook Air M1 2020: ethminer Results

Post by macminergod »

Using ethminer 0.19.0-17+commit.ce52c740.dirty build for ARM Apple Mac's to mine Ethereum (ETH) through Unmineable pool using GPU. This M1 MacBook Air has 8-GPU's (not 7) and only used a stunning 20 Watts on maximum during mining. Hashrates and earnings were not impressive however. We did not notice on warmth during 15 minutes of mining. See our guide to install ethminer here.
