📽️ Livepeer GPU Miner Update
A major component of the upcoming Livepeer Streamflow update is software that allows GPU crypto miners to simultaneously run Livepeer video transcoding software. The Livepeer video transcoding software is able to utilize idle video processing ASICs on commercial GPUs, effectively transcoding video while causing minimal disruption to the GPU’s hashrate.
To test the software performance, the Livepeer team recently assembled a basic test mining rig with the following spec.
Check out the test miner below! 👇
Before benchmarking, the Livepeer team established a performance baseline by running a live stream transcoding task without running the mining software. From here, the team tested accordingly and observed the performance of the network.
