XMRig has separate miners for CPU and GPU. You can download them from here:
Note: You will need to download and run two separate instances if you want to mine with your GPU and CPU at the same time.
XMRig needs to be compiled for NVIDIA and AMD. Instructions for compiling are linked below(Ubuntu):
- 1.Unzip the file and extract the files into a new folder (Make sure your anti-virus doesn't delete the files)
- 2.Open the
config.jsonfile with Notepad
- 3.Find and change the following lines:
"url: "[pool address]"
"user: "[wallet address]"
- 1.Save the file and:
xmrig.exeif you're mining with your CPU,
xmrig-amd.exe. if you're mining with an AMD GPU,
xmrig-nvidia.exeif you're mining with a NVIDIA GPU.
Remember: if you want to mine with both your CPU and your GPU you must have both programs open at the same time!
That's it! You should be mining away now! :)
