Which mining tool to use?
« on: December 23, 2017, 01:13:15 pm »
Hi Everyone,

I have a question about the different mining tools available. Currently there is the CPU miner, sgminer, and easyminer. Which one is recommended for mining? I can't really tell if easyminer is using my CPU or GPU or does it use both? or would it be better to run sgminer or cpuminer?

From the looks of the GitHub repo for easyminer, I think easyminer actually packages up both sgminer and cpuminer, is that correct?

thanks.

Correct. It detects CPU and compatible GPU

And what are your preferences guys? Is there any summary or nice bottom line? I would like to read about them and I was wondering whether you could share with me some useful materials.
