New XMRig 5.0.0 stable release with built-in OpenCL support

XMRig released the latest 5.0.0 version, a first stable unified 3 in 1 GPU+CPU release with OpenCL support builtin into the miner and it also not requires additional external dependencies on the compilation.

Monero will change the PoW algorithm to RandomX on November 30, so now you’re ready to prepare your miners for the upcoming revolution. Miners and proxy should be updated before the 30th of November and if your pool does not support the algorithm negotiation option, you should set it manually.

The best part of this news is the built-in OpenCL support: you can easily mine RandomX with AMD Radeon (RX and VEGA) cards. The performance for GPUs is not comparable to the performance under Cryptonight algorithms, but they’re still improving it and power consumption also seems relatively lesser.

In the end, you can also use the new configuration wizard: a wizard that helps you create the initial configuration for unified XMRig miner. Everything is ready and simple, you can start (from the 30th of Nov.) mining Monero with RandomX using your CPU and your GPU.

To check benchmarks of CPUs and GPUs in RandomX, you can consult the https://randomx.monerobenchmarks.info/ and https://randomx.jir.dk/ websites. At this time, the best piece of hardware to mine RandomX is the Ryzen CPU. And, if you can spend more money, Threadripper and Epyc CPUs are definitely the top players in this mining world.

So, are you ready for the upcoming Monero RandomX mining revolution?
