# Are the results from hardware comparison and calculator real?

Are the mining hardware results mentioned here real?

http://anty.info/primecoin-hardware/

If I put best hardware with best chains per day value to calculator here, it does not look bad for top hardware with the most chains per day.

http://anty.info/primecoin-calculator/

XPM difficulty: 10.13498384

Tell me how often I will find a block
Chains per day Average days to find a block Average coins per day Number of instances (PCs)
Remove 7.412 0.15 days 64.8791401 XPM = 0.35683462 BTC = 295.02 USD

Are this values real?

With difficulty 10, I don’t think any single computer will get more than .10 chains per day, while most I’ve seen get way less than that. You need to look at the N-Chain length and make sure it matches the difficult as the chains per day is calculated using the current difficulty.

Edit: It even says that in a bright blue message on that page you linked.

Still would not be this hardware ok to use? It is there mentioned in table for N-chain value 9.

In the calculator there is XPM difficulty 10.13358486.

What could be expected income per day with it now?

Intel xeon E5-4650 Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit v0.1.2.0xpm-hp11-unk-beta 74 7.412 19212 10 10 1000000 9

It makes \$15.00/day at difficulty 9.99. So less than that.

I’ve been mining on my Intel Xeon E5620 @ 2.40GHz.
With 4 threads I get 0.014 chains per day.

Not sure about the one above…

I am considering whether it would not be worth to hire dedicated high performance server with 32 cores?

If it would be worth it?

[quote=“nov, post:6, topic:1317”]On which hardware, please?

Really it is so bad even on Intel xeon E5-4650?

If it was so easy to make money mining with certain CPUs then everyone would get one and then the difficulty would increase negating it. I’m also sure that the E5-4650 has a pretty bad cost/performance ratio. Even if it was prohibitively expensive for most people to buy that processor they would then buy more cheaper machines that would equal or surpass the same performance for the same cost. Again, making the difficulty go up.

If the hardware comparison and calculator not real at this dificult. What is the best now for minning? what processors? Because you can see people minning and gething 8xpm/h still. would love to know how they do that.

Regards.

Yes. I would like to also know - how they do that?

The calculator gives nice result for that expensive processor even for the increased difficulty around 10, XPM also grew up. The way that even with the cost of dedicated server for month that it would be profitable very nicely to be able to try that. There is however that price barrier of cost. And that not everybody doing it. And who is doing it probably will not tell if that is true?

Only way is to get a ton of servers to mine.
