So since a lot of us are only single-gpu mining with their gaming rig, I thought why not share some of the core details in gaming whilst not losing that much hashrate;
I personally have an rtx 2070 super so my hashrate is around 44 mH
First of all, your fps should be capped; I have a 144hz monitor, but when I play for example Minecraft I cap it to 80 fps, just so it won’t go from 36 mH all the way to 25 mH while gaming.
Don’t use any type of anti-analysing; Basically anything that requires a game to use computation will make your hashrate drop. (in this instance calculate the hex of pixel 1 and 2 and combining the 2 to make a new color blending in with the rest)
Last of all don’t overdo the graphics; In a game like vanilla Minecraft (without mods, shaders etc) it is very easy to say it’s not “really” gpu hungry, but when I try to start Cyberpunk while my miner is on, I could forget it. That’s why when gaming you should find a perfect balance in graphics and performance by playing with those settings.
Thanks for listening to my TED talk.
TL;DR : Tweak the settings that are related to computational work to lower the decrease in hashrate while gaming
