Forum rules
Anything about Riecoin mining goes here! A type of topic are threads about a CPU type. Only post your optimal parameters or show your machine in such topic and create a new one if there is no topic about your CPU, following the same scheme as the current ones. Otherwise you can also discuss about things like the profitability in general or other mining related subjects.
Different CPUs models should be discussed on the same topic if they are of the same architecture, have the same number of cores, and the same cache sizes, for example the 2700X and 3700X will have different topics, while the 3770K and the 3770 should be discussed on the same topic.
Do not talk about the mining software (suggestions, bug reports,...), go to the rieMiner's topic for this.
No technical support here as well, go to the Help subforum.
Discussions about current Riecoin mining pools must go to the Pools subforum.

Intel Pentium Silver N5030 (and other Gemini Lake 4 Cores)

Post by Pttn »

Just got a Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3i to replace an old Laptop since I don't need high mobile performance, but welcome the absence of fans, charging via Usb C, and the Wuxga resolution...

Here are good settings for the current Difficulties if using the 4 Threads.

Code: Select all

Threads = 4
PrimeTableLimit = 2147483648
SieveWorkers = 2
SieveBits = 24
You should earn about 10 RIC/day at Difficulties around 920 if there are no other CPU intensive application. The N5030 will be running around 2-2.1 GHz in this condition. The frequency will be higher if less Cores are used.
It is about 2.5-3x faster than the Raspberry Pi, and it has similar multicore performance as old Mobile Sandy Bridge i5/i7s with 2 Cores like the 2620M, which is honestly not bad for something based on Atom architectures.

Note: if you plan to buy a similar laptop and plan to use Mobile Data, the Intel XMM 7360 = Fibocom L850-GL does not have drivers for Linux :|
There is a GitHub repository for it, though I prefer to wait for an out of the box support.
