Post your plotting speeds here. Plotting hardware comparison.
FX-4300, GTX 1070, 16GB RAM
GPU Plot Generator
0 0 4096 512 128 (uses 1 GB VRAM + 1 GB RAM)
Writes a 500GB optimized plot to two PMR drives in parallel (1TB total) in about 3 hours at 22,000 nonces/minute.
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 ~4400 nonces/min (wplotgenerator on /async mode)
Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 Ti 3500-3600 nonces/min (GPUplotter on buffer mode)
4 cores 3900/minute, Xplotter.
Question is, can you write 30,00+ nonces/min to the drive or is your plotter screaming to fill the buffer and then waiting for the write to finish?
i7-4790 6 core 11000 nonces/min xplotter
has anyone tried the ryzen cpu yet to test :?
Intel i7 6700k running on 7 threads out of the 8 threads and getting about 10k-12k per min on Xplotter!!! :-)
i7 3930k using 6 threads - wplotgenerator /async - 10k/nonces per min - minimal system impact
Definitely slower than using gpu's, but doesn't impact usability as I have an old pair of gtx 680s currently which tend to lag.
@xburst wplotgenerator/ why not xplotter? at least it doesnt burn ur cpu
@HiDevin going back to using xplotter - thanks! I guess I thought using wplot gave me more control over the stagger size which it appears xplotter takes care of on it's own. At 11 threads the 3930k is doing just above 15k nonces/min.
@xburst np :)
