Crypto Mining on Mac's: Intel Mac Mini + Cudo Miner!!

Post by macminergod »

Crypto mining on the fastest Intel Mac Mini Apple produced - the 6-Core 3.2 GHz i7 with Cudo Miner. Cudo Miner is a CPU and GPU crypto miner that will mine different coins. Pur bnechmark chose XMRig to mine Monero (XMR) with CPU only. The Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536MB GPU is not compatible with a crypto miner at this time. We saw an average hashrate of 1.90 kh/s mining Monero (XMR) coin. Cudo Miner uses XMRig to mine and connects to the miner pool. The hashrate reported by the CudoMiner XMRIg console was close to 2.00 kh/s. It found the Mac Mini Intel CPU i7-8700B with 12 threads. CPU wattage was around 38 - 65 based on Intel Power Gadget monitor. CPU Temperature stayed around 136℉. We chose to enabled "overclocking" in Cudo Miner. Visit ​​ for the latest crypto mining software and install guides for macOS and Windows Boot Camp.

Mining at 1.90 kH/s 24/7 365 days a year at the current XMR market price would net you $0.23 a day or $1.59 a week or $6.80 a month or $82.73 a year. Putting that in perspective more below could mean:

If you have 20x ($1249 per unit currently or $24,980 total) of this Mac Mini unit running 24x7 365 days a year you could net around $1655 a year. At this rate, you would make back your spend in 15 years. However, given the current volatility value of crypto, you could make that back much much sooner or much much later, possibly never.

macOS Catalina 10.15.7
Mac Mini (2018) (Macmini8,1)
3.2 GHz 6-Core (12 cores total) Intel Core i7-8700B
32 GB 2667 MHz DDR4 Ram
Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB

Better off with the new Mac Mini M1

I get 2.4 Kh/s which is faster than the intel, and it’s only using 19 watts.

And the M1 mini price is less than the Mini 6 core
