Raptoreum Crypto CPU Miners Drive AMD Ryzen Shortage, Large Level 3 Cache Becomes Secret Sauce

Raptoreum cryptocurrency is making big full swings in crypto world especially it’s contribution towards CPU mining has to be recognized well among anti-ASIC community. Surprisingly, AMD Ryzen 9 and Threadripper CPUs are the most established leaders within Raptoreum CPU mining charts due to their enormously large Level 3 cache. Of course, current CPU shortage in Amazon is driven by Raptoreum CPU miners since GPUs are hard to come by.

Raptoreum was initially focused to end ASIC or FPGA mining dominance as a result of poor distribution of Bitcoins and other SHA-256 algorithm coins into the hands of ordinary people. Moreover, ASIC mining machines drive the mining difficulty higher and at the end of the day profits stay lower.

So Raptoreum developers went into CPU mining method empowered by GhostRider mining algorithm to keep Raptoreum blockchain network clean from ASICs. Basically, GhostRider is a combination of Cryptonite and x16r algorithms with some significant changes in unique mix coding by intense randomization technique compared to x16r method thus pressures L3 CPU cache mining intensity.

Largest CPU L3 cache sizes is only found in Ryzen Threadripper or Epyc 7742 CPUs but AMD makes them in few units so the Ryzen 9 5000 and 3000 series became the household name for CPU mining. Interestingly, CPU mining enthusiasts are inclined to purchase more of Ryzen 9 3900X with only 12 Cores and not Ryzen 9 3950X or 5950X because low price and similar performance due to identical 64 MB L3 cache.

On average hashing speed the Ryzen 9 3900X or 5900X makes about 5100 H/s enhanced with CL16 or CL14 tight timed memory kits. Some overclocking also could lead to increased hashrate but not much, considering the power consumption into cost equation. Rough power consumption estimates for Ryzen 9 3900X system is rated at 190W with OC settings. Raptoreum has just overtaken Monero in terms of mining profitability as a result being a new proof of work coin with strong ambitions. In near future, AMD will not cut it’s CPU prices so significantly as Ryzen 2000 series because CPU miners push the higher demand.
