Title: Miner and AES instruction set
Post by: JeyJey on April 07, 2020, 01:22:10 PM
Hello,

Is the support of the AES instruction set on the processor a prerequisite to be able to run the miner?

Thank you!

I read that with xmrig and randomx, the machine must have AES-NI to be efficient (otherwise its going to mine very slowly using software AES).

Btw on AES:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Encryption_Standard

AES is an encryption algo that has been in software until recently, and now since its so popular its being included in processors.
