Nanominer, the developer of cryptivate mining software, added to his software support for Intel Arc graphic accelerators. This is the first such solution. Recall that the Intel Arc video cards officially do not support engineering.
According to VideoCardz, the new software has already been tested by cryptomers. The latter have confirmed that Intel's map has actually learned to extract cryptation -- it is not very effective. Arc A380 is so far the only video map of the Arc series officially available for sale. Its production performance in the Ethereum crypthalate is 10.2 Mash/s without optimism. Given that the typical energy consumption of the map is 75 W, the efficiency is very low, which is worse than GeForce GTX 1660.
It is explained that Intel ' s map in myning is affected by the low discharge of the memory tyre . Arc A380 therefore provides efficiency of 0.136 Mash/s per watt of energy consumed, which is lower than the average of 0.38 Mash/s for most popular GPU models.
Depending on the settings, Arc A380 can extract Ethereum. This is due to the fact that the DAG size for Ethereum is 5,127 Mbytes, while the amount of memory available to the Arc A380 card is 4,832 Mbytes.
It should be remembered that Ethereum is expected to move to the Proof of Stake model in September, so it will not be possible to extract this alcoin on any video map.
For this case, Nanominer supports an automatic change in the algorithm for Ethereum Classic, as shown by blogger Red Panda Mining in the video above.
