The rumors in fact started on Chinese language boards that claimed the PS5 was hacked to assist NBMiner, an Ethereum mining algorithm that was reportedly able to 99MH/s. This might’ve been an unbelievable feat contemplating a tuned AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card sits at round 60MH/s mining.
The experiences said the hacked PS5 was pulling 99MH/s with the console drawing round 211W whereas it mined which might be spectacular in comparison with the RDNA 2-based Radeon RX 6000 collection flagship graphics playing cards. You’ll be able to tune and overclock the Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics playing cards however you will discover it unimaginable to bump over 60MH/s mining crypto.
It appears shops don’t have any points reporting this faux information as actual… however if you happen to thought a cutdown semi-custom APU within a thermally-limited and power-limited PlayStation 5 console would completely obliterate an AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT or the flagship Radeon RX 6900 XT — each with their Infinity Cache of which the PS5 doesn’t have in any respect — then you definately’d be incorrect.
Nearly 100MH/s out of the PS5 at 211W would see each crypto miner on the earth shopping for each single PlayStation 5 console ever made irrespective of the fee at that time.
