Noob here and new to mining / crypto.
I have a gpu server with 2x AMD EPYC 7H12 64-Core Processor, 2TB RAM and 8 x A100 40GB that I am using from mining outside working hours when GPUs are not being used, however i could use 6 gpus’s non stop.
I have 2 virtual machines, each with 4 gpu’s allocated and windows 10. I have tried ubuntu, but i had difficulties installing the drivers, while windows was a straightforward driver.
One VM is mining on nicehash quickminer with a constant 169.52 MH/s and the other is with GMiner on 2miners pool. I get 175MH/s.
I am thinking about installing a dedicated OS, however does it worth the struggle? I see no support for A100 on hiveos, but maybe the drivers included already support it?
For the numbers given, i imagine I should have better results than now?
Thanks and my bad for asking maybe newbie questions.
