Welcome to the mineZcash.com benchmarking page!

This page is an open resource for anyone to post their Zcash hardware performance. By posting your performance you can help the community figure out which hardware is best for mining Zcash. You can post anonymously without logging in.


To use the Equihash benchmark to determine your hash rate run zcash-cli zcbenchmark solveequihash 20 to run 20 benchmark tests (takes ~20 minutes) Then calculate the average time of those results (total time / 20) to get your 'solve equihash' time. It's important to note that there are 2 hashes per solve.

In mediawiki tables are not easy to create, so we can use http://www.tablesgenerator.com/mediawiki_tables# to help us.

To edit this table with your own info first click on the edit tab at the top of this page, then copy all the text below the line into the table generator, make your additions into the table, click the "generate" button then "copy to clipboard" button, then paste the table back here when you have finished.

Please message me if you see any problems, spam, etc... Best Regards, Gibson
