AMD has now officially released their much anticipated Radeon RX VEGA 64 GPU, so of course the first thing to test is its capabilities in crypto mining. There were many rumors about the performance of the VEGA 64 regarding crypto mining, especially with its new HBM2 memory, but in reality, it does not seem like it will be the best option for miners. The out-of-the-box VEGA 64 posts a hashrate for Ethereum mining of only 31-32 MHS despite running with a fairly high power consumption. It also runs very hot, and the higher the temperature goes, the lower the performance drops.
