New XMRig 5.1.0 Miner With Improved RandomX Mining Performance

The latest release of the XMRig 5.1.0 just came out after the successfull Monero (XMR) hardfork to RandomX and it brings improvements in performance. RandomX performance is improved up to +6-7% on Intel CPUs and +2-3% on Ryzen CPUs, so if you are mining Monero (XMR) at the moment or any of the other RandomX-based crypto projects such as LOKI, ArQmA or Wownero you might want to update your mining software. The developer of the mining software also notes that you should always disable “Hardware prefetcher” and “Adjacent cacheline prefetch” in BIOS for Intel processors in order to get the optimal RandomX performance with them. With this latest performance improvement XMRig might yet again lead the pack of RandomX miners by a bit, followed by SRBMiner-MULTI and still the bit slower XMR-STAK-RX.
