As measured using Monero miners. Metrics are calculated based on a network hash rate of X GH/s and using a BTC – USD exchange rate of 1 BTC = $ . These figures vary based on the total network hash rate and on the BTC to USD conversion rate. Block reward is fixed at 12.5 BTC and future block reward reductions are not taken into account. The average block time used in the calculation is 600 seconds. The electricity price used in generating these metrics is $ 0.12 per kWh.3

Footnotes
  1. Discrete AMD Radeon™ and FirePro™ GPUs based on the Graphics Core Next architecture consist of multiple discrete execution engines known as a Compute Unit (“CU”). Each CU contains 64 shaders (“Stream Processors”) working together.
  2. Data based on AMD Engineering design of “Vega” GPU architecture. Radeon R9 Fury X has 4 geometry engines and a peak of 4 polygons per clock. Vega is designed to handle up to 11 polygons per clock with 4 geometry engines. This represents an increase of 2.6x. VG-3 Learn more at www.amd.com/en/technologies.
  3. Testing done by AMD performance labs on Dec 12, 2017. Cryptonight hashrate and total system power consumption measured on Core i7 4790k with 16GB DDR3-1600 and Windows 10 Pro. Radeon™ Vega Frontier Edition with optimized settings: fan 100% and HBM2 1100 MHz. Titan Xp with optimized settings: fan 100%. Radeon™ Frontier Vega Edition tested with 17.30.1029 drivers and Titan Xp tested with 388.59 drivers.
  4. HEVC (H.265), H.264, and VP9 acceleration are subject to and not operable without inclusion/installation of compatible HEVC players.  GD-81
  5. The “Driver Options” feature is an optional installation when setting up Radeon™ Pro Software and is compatible with the Radeon™ Pro WX series (desktop only) and Radeon™ Vega Frontier Edition graphics cards and only supports Windows® 10.
