There are some news from China about crypto money mining, which has been on the agenda again recently. According to these reports, some people in China have hacked the PS5.
With the popularity of Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies have become seriously popular lately. A new claim has been made regarding cryptocurrency mining, which has been causing serious difficulties to video card sellers and buyers for years.
According to reports in various forums and some well-known organizations in China recently, a group of people in China have hacked the PlayStation 5 and used it for cryptocurrency mining. According to rumors, they have turned the PlayStation 5 into a mining hardware that supports NBMiner and has a power of 99 MH / s. Are these news real?
Can PS5 Mining Crypto Money?
Although the PlayStation 5 is not as powerful as the recent graphics cards, it is known to have a powerful hardware. Inside the console is a customized GPU based on AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture. According to research by TweakTown, AMD’s RX 6900 XT graphics card hardly goes beyond 60 MH / s in mining. Considering that the PlayStation 5 GPU is not as powerful as the RX 6900 XT, it seems extremely difficult for the console to reach 99 MH / s.
However, according to the news of DualShockers, although the speed of 99 MH / s is not very realistic, it is said that the PlayStation 5 can be hacked and used for crypto money mining. So the power it reaches is a bit of an exaggeration, but a mining can be done with the PlayStation 5.
It should be noted that this article was prepared only according to the research of DualShockers and TweakTown. The possible mining power of the PlayStation 5 is currently just rumor. Nevertheless, if such a situation is real, the stock problem in the graphics cards may further trouble the work of the PlayStation 5, whose stock problem cannot be solved anyway.
