The more interesting question is, what hash wouldget the ps4  Grin


Just about to ask that - I've got a PS4 idle most of the time. What graphic card does it have in? Might mine fairly well?

A quick search indicates it's basically a Radeon 7850/CPU integrated chip. Not sure how that would affect its mining potential, or how hot it would get given the PS4 wasn't designed to be pushed that hard.

Guess it will be a while before it gets modded though?

you can do a fair comparison of any AMD based hardware by comparing the shader count of your hardware to something similar at this website

https://litecoin.info/Mining_hardware_comparison

and here

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_AMD_graphics_processing_units


shader count roughly determines hashing power (adjusted for frequency)
manufacuring process (40nm, 28nm etc) determines power consumption.

IGN claims the shader count for PS4 is 1152 at 800mhz

so it would be roughly in the ballpark of a 7870 or R270

so between 300-350 khs

Thanks. That would be ok for "starter mining". But a lot has to happen first e.g. PS4 get modded, some people try it out  to make sure mining doesn't fry the PS4 Wink

that is true you would probably have to mine at a lower intensity to because of how jam packed consoles are.

I have hope for it. It runs extremely cooly (and silently) after several hours of gameplay in a 30 degrees environment with no externl fan or air conditioning. I know its not mining, but games come close to using up the max power of the GPU (I presume).

Mining with a ps3 seems like just another way to skip on the hardware. But it would be cool if the next generation systems do that.

Sell your PS3 on eBay. You will waste far more electricity than you will gain in BTC. You are better off selling the PS3 and buying BTC with the money you made from the sale. Even if your electricity is free, you will make more by selling it than you will in years. You will ruin the hardware before you get close to paying for it.

Don't waste your time.

Well put.

Medow, sell those PS3's before they continue to depreciate! Keep one in case you become nostalgic. Smiley

With what you get for the ps3 you can get an older asic. maybe an S1

True mining BTC with a PS3 would suck right now,maybe mining a profitable CPU coin would be better.  Tongue
