To use either profit switch function or mining calculator, you will need to know the hashrates your GPUs have on certain algorithms. You have two options to get these numbers - either by mining and monitoring the speeds directly or by conducting a benchmark. The latest option will certainly be easier, faster, and give you a lot of information in just a few steps.
To conduct a benchmark on minerstat, follow the next steps:
Load all default options.
Save and benchmark.
Note that in order for the benchmark to start, you will need to have your rig online. So don't forget to click
Start mining if you are using Windows node or by turning on the rig if you are using mining OS.
When the benchmark starts, you will be able to open it and monitor the progress in real-time (the page will auto-refresh).
If the benchmark is interrupted, you can continue with the benchmark by clicking the button
Continue with the benchmark.
When benchmark finishes, you will be able to:
