New update for ETH miners: V11.4 from Claymore. Although some people are switching over to PhoenixMiner V2.7c, you should compare for yourself and check the results on the pool where you are mining. The latest version includes an auto-detect feature for -dcri options in ETH only mining, which is quite useful if you haven’t optimized your GPUs yet. RX550 cards also get a small bump in speed with ASM.
Edited for 11.4. Now with less stale shares !
Claymore has updated the Dual ETH miner to v11.0. Now you can mine keccak or blake2s as a second coin. The fee also has been brought down to 1.5% when dual mining. Happy Mining !
– added new algorithm for dual mode: blake2s (stratum pools only), use “-dcoin blake2s” option.
– added new algorithm for dual mode: keccak (stratum pools only), use “-dcoin keccak” option.
– reduced devfee for dual mode, now it is 1.5%.
– for 2GB cards devfee is removed completely, i.e. on 2GB cards you can mine all ETH forks without devfee. Check Readme for details.
– added “-tstart” option.
– “-asm 2” option value now supports Tahiti, Tonga, Ellesmere, Baffin; in some cases it can be a bit faster in ETH-only mode.
– removed “-allcoins exp” option value.
– a few minor bug fixes and improvements.
Here are a few miner updates from the past few weeks that can improve your mining uptime and performance. For Nvidia users, you should always check out NemosMiner and the various ccminer updates here. For AMD users, we have new updates from Claymore. We have an update to the ETH Dual miner, now v.10.3. These updates mostly fix issues with the latest Adrenaline AMD drivers. The Cryptonote update is now at v.11.2. And Zawawa has updated his Gateless Gate Sharp to v1.1.16, which is now becoming a very interested free software.
We’d like to thank our friends, Initech Solutions inc. over @ www.gpurigbuilds.com who have shared this build with us. You can order Pre-Assembled and configured Rigs for crypto mining at a reasonable price. We of course suggest to make your own, but those are solid rigs.
This rig hashes around 170-175mhs on Ethereum, using 800w. It can be configured to use less power but it has to be tested for stability over a few days. Parts include an EVGA 1000GQ, 6x Armor 4G RX570/580 GPUs, a high quality rig frame, which is stack-able, 8G of ram (really needs only 4), 32gb usb 3.0 flash drive and a Biostar TB250-BTC motherboard paired with a G3900/30 LGA 1151 CPU.
Just wanted to share what a clean build looks like compared to home made rigs. Also available in up to 12 GPU configurations 🙂
There has been a lot of new coins lately. The most profitable to mine so far are Bitcoin Gold, ETN, BTX, – or – if you don’t feel like switching all your rigs, consider going to nicehash, zpool, yiimp, miningpoolhub or another multicoin pool that switches automatically. Although be aware fees may be higher.
Plus the new 1070ti is out, and performance is up to expectations. Happy mining.
Small update for Claymore ETH Dual Miner, now V10.2. Check out details on the thread here. Overall some nice improvements and features that the community of miners requested :
- DAG generation time included in DEV fee when it needs to change
- Detailed stats for rejected shares
Here are a few mining software updates for a variety of algorithms that will help you reach higher hashrates:
