The Sony PlayStation 5 game console is not suitable for mining, the mining of cryptocurrency is limited by the system. However, Chinese enthusiasts have managed to get around this limitation.
The hardware components of the PlayStation 5 are quite suitable and sufficient for mining, however, until now, this task has not been possible to implement on the console. The console uses AMD Ryzen CPU on Zen 2 microarchitecture (x86, 8 cores, 16 threads, up to 3.5 GHz) and AMD Radeon GPU with RDNA 2 architecture (ray tracing acceleration; up to 2.23 GHz, 10.3 teraflops) …
Etherium mining was successfully launched on the console, which is confirmed by the photo with the screenshot. Judging by the screenshot, the mining performance of the console reaches 98.76 MH/s, and the power consumption is 211W.
We cannot exclude the possibility that for such a result the console was not only hacked, but also overclocked, since its native performance should be at the level of AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT with 50 MH/s.
