The recent Launch of Intel new generation of CPUs, AMD Ryzen has been nudged out of the limelight. The AMD Ryzen CPUs supply might become as scarce as graphics cards therefore raising the price. According to the Rapotoreum Mining Profibility Calculator one Ryzen 5950x, with the hash rate of 4247 h/s can grab you 161 Raptoreum Worth, $0.00215607 at the time of publishing. It equates to $3.47 at 125 watts from power supply unit.
Annual return mined from the single 5950x is no joke as it can grab $930.75. Raptoreum is not necessarily a new crypto currency but it is hunger for CPU cache that especially ones with bigger L3 cache and it includes the Ryzen 9, 5950x and the 5900x raises some eyebrows.
The 5900x and the 5950x have an L3 cache of 64 MB that can be argued as the relatively affordable price. Miners may not go after those CPUs as they might be looking at those larger less practical AMD CPUs, that cost an arm and led like Epyc or Thread ripper 3970x that is equipped with 128 MB of L3 cache has the hash rate of 8587 h/s and it can farm 325 Raptoreum per day and it works out to $7.01 or $2558.65 annually.
How much money Crypto miners will spend on hardware eventually turning a green house into the mining farm and so current price of AMD CPUs, will be pocket change to them and can be scary for those looking to upgrade their rings sooner than later. We heard about the 3rd generation Epyc which will feature AMDs Simple but the genius vertical cache and the boat load of L3 cache 768 MB. Though those chips will come with a heavy price tag miners won’t hesitate to spend the little bit more money to yield the more crypto.
The current Supply of AMD CPIs remains healthy at the most popular PC hardware stores and like the Newegg, Amazon and Microcenter and even with the 8 core 16 thread 58000x popping up, on sale at Microcenter for just $330. Now it seems like Raptoreum is not much of the threat to consumer CPUs but it is also something to keep in the back of Mind
