Hashrates.com is the leading reference site for checking GPU and CPU hash rates. You don’t have to be an expert – anyone interested in mining cryptocurrencies can use our Hash Rate calculator to get an accurate hash rate for a given algorithm with your hardware.
The higher the hash rate you can attain on a given algorithm, the more profit you can make, but estimates vary widely. If you’re already mining with a mining pool or a GUI Miner, you’ll be able to verify the hash rates these sites claim you have, and benchmark them with the results you find here.

Hash rate is measured in hashes per second. Basically, how many times your computer can calculate the output of a hash function.
It’s important to note that hash rate is not equal to your computer’s processor speed. The first Proof Of Work algorithms such as Bitcoin’s SHA256 hash function was “compute-bound”, so mining dialogue focussed on the clock speed. In other words, a faster processor meant faster hashing.
However, new cryptocurrencies such as Grin have Proof of Work algorithms that are designed to be memory latency-bound. Ethereum ProgPoW provides a higher hash rate to GPU miners because they have greater memory bandwidth. Furthermore, GPUs that are memory-optimised will benefit most from that switch, demonstrating the importance for individuals to benchmark their systems and mine what’s most profitable with their hardware.
The hash rate is a measure of how fast your system can process a specific Proof of Work algorithm.
In most cases there are many different pieces of miner software that are written to process Proof of Work algorithms. Most crypto projects provide an open source miner that anyone can download and use, however third-party miner software is usually much more optimised and offers a higher hash rate in exchange for a small fee that is taken automatically.
