Title: AMD Releases Driver for DAG Issue !!!
Post by: MATHReX on August 15, 2017, 06:36:38 PM
Well, AMD Released a driver for DAG issue, still have to experiment with this driver.
Try it out in your Radeon Rigs too and provide feedback for the same.

Link to the post, where I found it: http://www.legitreviews.com/amds-new-mining-block-chain-optimized-driver-tested_197095 (http://www.legitreviews.com/amds-new-mining-block-chain-optimized-driver-tested_197095)

Link to the beta drivers: https://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/Radeon-Software-Crimson-ReLive-Edition-Beta-for-Blockchain-Compute-Release-Notes.aspx (https://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/Radeon-Software-Crimson-ReLive-Edition-Beta-for-Blockchain-Compute-Release-Notes.aspx)

I guess AMD won't release any updates to this driver, so this might be it.

This driver at 1stminingrig isn't the official driver release.  This was the leaked one by robinhood which was posted on these forums a week ago.

5 card ETH rig went from ~139 MH/s ====> ~146 MH/s
5 card UBIQ rig stayed the same at ~145 MH/s, so the drivers do work to fix the epoch hash issue! :)

I used DDU to uninstall the drivers in safe mode and had to apply the pixel patcher to bypass the signature check. Also needed to use AB Beta 16 to be able to set the undervolt and clocks.

You should always do a clean removal in safe mode using DDU before installing new drivers.



Title: Re: AMD Releases Driver for DAG Issue !!!

You need to use the pixel patcher to bypass the signature check. Otherwise you will get the Code 43 error in Device Manager.

I ran the benchmarks from epoch 150, 180 and 199 (the highest Claymore will let you benchmark). Stable hash rate was virtually identical except for some fluctuations which is normal.

dipping to 22 from 30Mh/s isn't normal.

Benchmarks are synthetic figures, variations are normal when running  the same test. The stable hash was the same in all the tests and the real mining hash from the current ETH epoch 138 to the UBIQ epoch 6 was also the same.

yes that is still the case with a modded bios


also,


afterburner (beta) is having major issues with this driver ATM.


I can confirm though that the DAG issue has been resolved with RX 480 with this driver...

But cannot control fan speed or much of anything through 4.4.0 afterburner. I am going to try setting with Claymore next.

7x480 rig went from 186MHs to 203MHs.

Remove drivers in safe mode with DDU.
Restart
Install new drivers.
Restart
Patch with pixel patcher
Restart
Install the beta release of Afterburner, overclock
Run miner.

Actually, they have.

The latest 385.28 drivers released 2 days ago (Aug. 14) have added a "slight bump" in hash rates across most Nvidia GPUs.

I have 4 gigabyte 570's. I have been dual mining dcri 30. Each card registers about 110 watts in hwinfo. I tried these drivers. My cards were over 160 watts in hwinfo. Even then the memory keeps dropping from 1999 to 1000. So I use 50 watts more but end up with a slower hashrate. Same memory drop problem was happing on my 6 gpu 470/480 Saffire rig. That was using robinhoods beta. I tried undervolting on these drivers. Unfortnattlly, my gpu will not stay stable unvolted or not. If I was able to increase the power limit that may fix it. Then I would be pulling over 50 watts more a card for a 2 mhs increase. I understand higher hash needs more power. That is just not worth it to me.
 I will try eth only on my 470/480 rig tomorrow. Those do not mine dcr very high anyway. So they increase in eth might be worth it. Hopefully, I can undervolt those some.

RX 580 Hynix with biosmod here.

Almost that same.

Unable to keep same oc, so reducing is the way to go (that solve the memory's halving problem). Reducing the oc gave me bad hashrate and yet more consumption than before.

Lot's of people talking about new hashrate nothing about consumption or dual mine.

Claymore failed for me.

Was on 1.7.1 official (@25.1 Mhs), used DDU to remove, installed Robinh00d, worked great and got 2Mh/s better.
Tried this driver - used DDU in safe mode, install Mining driver, install pixel patcher, reboot.  AB beta works, but Claymore 9.8 fails to initialize.

Does not work on win 8.1

Pretty much bricked a rig installing this with win 8.1 but luckily there was a restore point.  So not sure how likely AMD is to release this for win 8.1, so that means if your like me then you will need to load a new OS on to the rigs (win 7 or 10) which seems super unnecessary just for a driver...

Here are my results using ethminer's benchmark mode. Clearly AMD dramatically lessened the DAG impact over time.

However, I too have power consumption issues. Consumption doubled (!) over my normal setup, presumably because I can no longer adjust memory voltage in WattTool. Is there another way to adjust memory voltage with these drivers?

It's not the Windows 7 driver. The problem is they are using the 'Windows 7 6 GPU mod' hack that hasen't been updated for over a year, then they wonder why they have problems. LOL

I have 3 gpu on my home computer, so no, it's not the 6gpu hack that is the problem.

You use a driver for Win 10/7 in Win 8 nad wonder why it won't work?

I figured someone would be a smart ass  :D

Win 8.1 is basically the same as win 7 and yes win 7 drivers from amd have worked before with no problem.

dipping to 22 from 30Mh/s isn't normal.

Benchmarks are synthetic figures, variations are normal when running  the same test. The stable hash was the same in all the tests and the real mining hash from the current ETH epoch 138 to the UBIQ epoch 6 was also the same.

There was also a major architectural change staring with the 17.7.2 drivers and there has been no 17.7.2 driver for Windows 8.1 realeased yet, like they were previously. That's also why the current Afterburner no longer works in 17.7.2 or with this driver.

With beta update that Robinh00d posted with dual mining eth+dcr, I got
on my 4x470 (Samsung) rig
Eth from 108mh to 117.5mh in total for
DCR from 2720mh to 2930mh in total
on my 4x570 rig
Eth from 108.5mh to 115.5mh in total
DCR from 2710mh to 2900mh in total
Those are average numbers.

Power consumption increased. I think, no matter how much was pulling from the wall before, with this speed increase I can reach max power consumption no problem. My 4x570 pulls 725w from the wall. If I lower power consumption I can instantly feel it on my hash rate speeds. Above 725w no go, just saying.

I am using windows 7.

I have to do more updates on other rigs, I hope that this official update is good too.

I agree, as my colleague said maybe undervoting don't work or Claymore is the problem.

I will try to install official drivers version and see if there are improvements.

On my 4x470 rig (Samsung) power consumption is at 630 from the wall.
Note: when I installed everything I didn't get a good speed because memory scale was limited. So I opened settings in AB and under AMD compatibility properties menu I checked Extend official overclocking limits box. That gave me a little more scale on the memory clock.

I wouldn't hold my breath. Official AMD support for Linux has been slow to almost non-existant since they moved to the AMDGPU Pro drivers. The official AMDGPU Pro drivers have yet to support GCN 1 & 2 cards in Linux despite having done so in Windows for YEARS, so you can't mix GCN 1 & 2 cards with newer cards using the official drivers.

Wattman is not controlling voltages for me.

Per the screen shot I have GPU and memory voltages at 810mV. On old drivers (and using WattTool) I would see just under ~60w in SIV and roughly ~100w per card at the wall (after netting out the system draw). In this case I was pulling ~108w in SIV and ~150w from the wall for the card (after netting out the system draw). Dual mining adds about anther 20w in SIV (so, more at the wall).

Not good.

Seems to be a mix of the app force quitting, or the entire system crashing & rebooting.

Rig is running Win 7 with 4x 470 and 1x 380, with latest DDU used before driver install and pixel patcher + 6GPU mod used afterwards.
Same result using either ETH 9.8 (ETH-only mode) or ZEC 12.6

All cards are at default clocks, voltage, timings. Tried each card individually using -di flags, same result.

After 2 DDU uninstalls (one in safe mode) I was able to get everything working.

All of my cards are performing better (480,580 and 380x). The 380x went from around 20.5 to 21.5. I was a little surprised to see a bump on it also.

I could not control the voltage using any new or old programs beyond MSI afterburner 4.4 Beta 15 (and now I shall try 16).
Well that new program, overdrive 0.1.3 was able to change the core voltage but then it would revert back to the previous voltage after 2-120 seconds. Kind of strange.
It might be claymore doing it. I'm going to change voltage and then run claymore tonight.

As a side note, I fucking hate AMD drivers.

Confirmed, my power usage shot way up too with the new drivers and a lot of screwing around to get them to work with the modded BIOS, not worth the extra hash rate for the increased power usage.

Someone needs to clue AMD in that it's a balance, we could get this slightly increased hash rate before if we threw concerns about power consumption to the wind and just wanted to go all out and max our hash rate.

If AMD wants to be really helpful, they would not only give us a specific optimized mining driver (better than the current beta) but also AMD generated/approved VBIOS files that are highly optimized for mining as well.

Since I am a glutton for punishment, I thought I would try this on a couple of 480's with stock BIOS settings just in case my earlier results were due to an incompatibility introduced by the aforementioned modified BIOS files.

Nope, same dismal results, probably even a bit worse. I didn't have to fight with the drivers as much and could skip the pixel patcher step, but overall the results are still pretty bad. If you have free electricity and live somewhere near the North Pole this mod works wonders for keeping you warm while hashing, but for the rest of us its pretty much a pass.

The only hope is the AMD is at least trying to throw miners a bone, but it remains to be seen how successful they will ultimately be at it.

I too could not get official driver to work with Win7, but the unofficial robinh00d driver works.

Afterburner beta #16 gave me clockspeed and voltage control for RX 470 and 480 using the robinh00d drivers
(have not tried with 570 yet)

Voltage changes are not applied immediately, takes effect when mining is paused/restarted.
Also it seems that changes to clocks end up resetting the effective voltage back to default, so make the voltage changes the final thing you apply.

Drivers worked for me with some effort. Windows 10, 3 580 Gigabyte Aorus 8GB. Stock voltage was 1125mv.  

Out of the box, no luck with voltage control through Wattman. The Afterburner beta was able to bring the voltage down 96mv from stock, but it would quickly glitch and massively drop hashrate or hang.

Went in, flashed the bios with new voltages--875mv for each state, and I changed the top state from 1365mhz to 1125mhz. Raised memory speed to 2150mhz, stock memory timings.

Rebooted. Brought me down to 950mv.

I then went through Wattman again to change the memory controller voltage from 950mv to 875mv. Success! All three cards are again running at 1125/2150 and using 863mv. Temps and power consumption are now identical to what they were prior to the beta driver.

When I purchased the cards in May, each got around 26.7mh/s (~81mh/s total) under the above settings. That had dropped to ~24.5mh/s (~73mh/s total) prior to installing the beta drivers. Now, with the beta drivers, I'm back at 26.7mh/s (81mh/s total) over the last 24 hours.

I confirm that power increase a lot after update.

I'm currently using Crimson ReLive Edition 17.7.1, my watt has been about ~870w, after update power shot up to anywhere from 1000w to 1300w.

Then I tried to downgrade to 17.7.2, watt did not decrease, that got me worry that something is wrong, since 17.7.2 is most recent stable version.

But after downgrade again to 17.7.1, my watt is stable again about ~870w.

So 17.7.2 and the blockchain beta version both eat away lot of power.

so...
- ati official driver do not work with windows 7, but work good on windows 10 (i have win7)
- unofficial modded driver work good on win7 and win 10 (but can not be sure if it is clean)
- both drivers break overclock compability, wattool and afterburner not work (even with new beta afterburner it not change everything)
- overdriveNtool work for new driver, have voltage but have no offset
- peoples saw increase of power, but it is just result of broken oc tools, they do not change voltage
conclusion - i will stay on old driver and wait for problems to go away ..


This should go to the 1st page

I would stay away from robinhood's driver, I mean is legit and all and I even did a throughout 100% check up, however nothing is sure. I would use the official driver from AMD. I'm grateful for robinhood's effort to share the driver.

I am updating my rigs to the Blockchain Beta driver on windows 10.

6x MSI 470 8gb : DDU, driver install, patch, AB Beta 16, undervolting - OK!
6x MSI 570 4gb: DDU, driver install, patch, AB Beta 16, undervolting - OK!

6x MSI 580 8GB: problems:

DDU, driver install, patch, crashes, and had to add the cards one by one and let them get detected. but it only works for 5 cards!

I can't add the 6th card - "Thread stuck in device driver" when I reboot with the 6th card connected. The card works if I switch it with card n°5.

I can mine with pre-DAG slowdown hashrate with these 5 cards.

Does anyone else have this issue?
Does anyone have an idea?

Thanks for you kind help

Have you used DDU? Try reinstall again, you may use DDU even twice.


Title: Re: AMD Releases Driver for DAG Issue !!!

I ran DDU in normal rather than safe mode and everything went fine. My XFX 580's went from 26.5 back up to 29.7 like they had been running when I first got them.

https://i.imgur.com/mPPbQrP.gif

I don't think the question is whether or not the drivers are able to increase the hashrate, as everyone pretty much agrees on this point. The question is does it increase the hashrate while maintaining the power saving measures many of us were previously running. These measures could include BIOS mods, overclocking, and undervolting.

So for everyone, the more helpful updates would include not only the fact that your hashrate returned to previous levels, but what was your pre-beta and post-beta power consumption readings and did you need to make any adjustments to return to normal levels.

For example, I have a RX580 8 GB that when I first got it I could get 30 MHs out of it at 122 watts. With the DAG issue it slowly crept down to ~27 MHs while still drawing 122 watts.

I then apply the Beta driver but need to revert some of the previous adjustments to make it work properly. I now am back to ~30 MHs in performance, but when I look at the power draw it is now using 150 watts.

So doing some simple math with the beta driver the card now consumes 5 watts of power for every 1 MHs of performance.

The pre-beta driver state it used only 4.5 watts for every 1 MHs of performance.

And the original state (where we all want to get back to) it required only 4.06 watts for every 1 MHs in performance.

So as you can see from the example, the beta driver (with adjustments to make it run stable) seems to draw roughly 0.5 to 1 whole extra watt for every 1 MHash it generates, which overtime can add up. At 30 MHs this is 30 watts extra per card, and in a 6 GPU rig it is 180 more watts. Since the new driver does not seem to work well with earlier BIOS mods or most overclocking and under-clocking settings most of us had in place prior, this is not really an improvement.

Is it really required to DDU twice? I am pretty sure if it doesn't work once it won't work the second time.

The DDU takes like 15 mins and another 15 mins to actually install the driver.

    2.MSI Radeon RX 580 Gaming X 8G Graphics Card

I installed this driver on my first rig win10 3x rx570 msi armor oc 4gb,2x rx570 asus 4gb both cards hynix memory, bios mod straps from 1:1500 to 2000 and 2:1500 to 2000.

On earlier drivers my cards were giving around 25mhs with 1130/1950 clock. Everything over 1950 clock would hang the card in opengl or 511 celzius error or just bsod. Tryed all sort of drivers 17.5.1,17.7.1,17.7.2, mix of 17.5.1 and 16.11.5 everything and nothing helped to get mem clock over 1950.

After installing this driver, ddu,patch,msi ab 16 i couldnt clock the cards, clock settings applyed only for gpu0. Not even fan control for the rest of the cards. Then i restarted and tryed to open msi ab first then claymore miner and i got bsod (video integrity check failoure smth like that) then i relized i needed to start clay 9.8 first then ab but still settings could be applyed only for gpu0. Then i tryed to set core clock and mem clock in claymore bat file but was getting up n downs on memory from 1000 to 1950 (-mclock 1950).

After all that i installed msi ab 15 and guess what everything works as a charm.

Downvolting,cclock,mclock,fans everything and i can even set mclock higher without crashing, now running 1170/2000 getting over 28mhs per card.

This driver is blessing for me!
Gonna install on rest of my rigs with same cards and i hope everything will work like this one.

I was unsure about installing this driver sience many ppl said they had problems with it and boy am i glad i did it :)

For most users with huge consumption increase:

It's because undervolting isn't working for you - You need to set up all in BIOS, find another tool that works or wait for news.

For those with drops to half performance and wierd clocks, it's because mem clock drops from 2xxx to 1000 or core clock drops to 300-900, it's due to high consumption - It's because undervolting isn't working for you - You need to set up on BIOS, find another tool that works or wait for news.

Some cards works with Afterburner Beta 15/16 / Wattool and Claymore (clocks) (especially 4xx) , some don't (mostly 580).

The fix isn't a driver side OC to compensate. If you try ubiq (no dag problem) and ETC (worse than ETH) the hashrate will be the same, the fix is real. Yet some people may experience some consumption increase (not huge - 5%, 10%) or even consumption drop.

Hi,
I have been running my rig with 4x powercolor rx 580 8gb, 2x rx 570 4gb and 1 sapphire rx 580 nitro + 8gb

after updating to this blockchain driver one of powercolor rx 580 card started to heat up very much. +5 degrees than others. I tried to run only with this card. same heat. reverted back to previous driver but heat still goes up to 75+ degrees. 4 cards are identical and only one of them causing this issue.

Can you set clock & voltage in claymore with these drivers?

check the memory log

2100 to 1000

140W power draw??? Dude, thats way beyond 200W@the wall.

back to old driver. temp & power & hashrate

Hello,

i the same problem, which the old driver use?

Thank you


I had same problem with memory going from 2200 to 1000, seems the the LCD TV I was hooked up to was causing the problem. It was also crashing the pc, switched to old monitor with lower resolution and solve the problem.

Have you tried the patch?

Hi,
I have been running my rig with 4x powercolor rx 580 8gb, 2x rx 570 4gb and 1 sapphire rx 580 nitro + 8gb

after updating to this blockchain driver one of powercolor rx 580 card started to heat up very much. +5 degrees than others. I tried to run only with this card. same heat. reverted back to previous driver but heat still goes up to 75+ degrees. 4 cards are identical and only one of them causing this issue.

What do you guys think might cause the problem?

one of my rx580  hung . even i tried to install the old driver.

Tryid it on 280x
Got 12-13mh per one(8.1x64, cm9.8)...nothing change from 15.12 driver. Stupid amd didn't applied their fix to truly good cards :(

Yeah if they fixed it on the 280x we would be getting 28MH/s with those old GPUs, but they only fixed it for the GPUs that they are currently selling. Greedy bastards.

I predicted this. People need to understand that if rx 580 was not polaris then rx 480 would never have got the fix, so amd is giving support for only what they are selling and that is it.

Claymore failed for me.

Was on 1.7.1 official (@25.1 Mhs), used DDU to remove, installed Robinh00d, worked great and got 2Mh/s better.
Tried this driver - used DDU in safe mode, install Mining driver, install pixel patcher, reboot.  AB beta works, but Claymore 9.8 fails to initialize.

XFX RX 480 4 GB BIOS, modded BIOS

Spent several hours trying all the following:
  • Reinstall all drivers (after removal using DDU Safemode
  • Reinstalling windows 7
  • Reinstalling 17.7.1
  • Update with beta driver from robinh00d
  • Rearranged my two GPUs to different PCI-e slots on the motherboard

Interestingly enough, the order of the graphics cards do make a difference.  Windows was not initializing them correctly, then I moved the riser'ed GPU to the other sideo of my GPU plugged directly on the motherboard.  Windows would boot, but get black screen after Windows logo appeared.

As of now, I am sticking with the beta driver (yeah I know) and happy to have AB working for 26.4 and 29.4 mh/s on my RX 480 cards.

As far as i know this driver does not work on Win 7.

It does work on Win 10 for RX580's. Just dont patch the driver with pixel patcher on 580's.
I used AB 4.4.0 Beta 16, works for OC settings. It however does not seem to undervolt card.
Also do not set your OC settings in the Claymore Batch file. does not work. The Driver changed the ADL API so would need an update for Claymore to fix this.
I used Global Wattman that comes with driver. Manually setting Voltage to 990mV and apply, it applies it but sometimes just reverts back to higher voltage later. Just set it back to Auto and apply then my voltage goes to 990mV again. (i do this while claymore is running)
Not even AMD software is properly controlling the Voltage..... tisk tisk AMD!
When you apply the pixel patcher and OC from the claymore batch file you get your mem clock jumping between 2150 and 1000MHz the whole time.
EVen GPU-z is reading GPU load incorrectly at 16% and mem controller 100% when it should be idle. HWinfo64 seems to read the GPU load correctly.

Managed to get my card stable at 30.5MH/s (MSI RX580 Armor 8GB) 990mV, 1250 GPU core, 2150 Mem clocks. Drawing under 100W running at 59-61C Temps. Happy will settle for that.
If running other AMD cards in the machine, and settings dont apply to others it could be because the are running headless. Might need to plug in a dummy plug into cards to make it think it has monitor connected. i know this works. Have found this with Nvidia mixed with AMD machines.
All Nvidia no problem.

AMD wont update driver again, so Claymore will hopefully soon update to fix OC and undervolt issues directly from the Miner batch file.

The official AMD blockchain driver for windows 7 x64 does not work (miners crash).
The leaked driver from robinh00d works but nothing can undervolt my RX570's, only OverdriveNTool  works for a few seconds before reverting.

The solution that worked best is to use the leaked driver and the wattman from the official driver:

1.  Install the official amd driver with amd settings
2.  Without reboot install the leaked driver via device manager by going the "i have a disk" route (for all cards - one by one)
3.  If you have a modified bios, run atikmdag-patcher and reboot 
4.   Use wattman to apply your mem clock and volt settings
5. Open miner, everything will be ok except undervolt, now with miner running make a small change to wattman and reapply (for each card one by one)

The voltages appear to be sticking for as long as the miner is running , except for the main card that reverts occasionally.

 The 280x was never a "truely good" ETH card in the first place - that was the 290 and to a lesser degree the 290x.

 Tahiti is arguably the best performance/price ratio for FP64 anyone ever released, but ETH doesn't use floating point....

@antycda and how much power consumption before these drivers?

I'd like to put a question for owners of rx 570 4gb. anyone has tested beta drivers on higher DAG epoch like #180?

I doubt wether mount 2 rx 570 rigs or one with gtx 1070

because rx 570 are 4gb model and maybe in future it will be too low to mine anything...

any idea?

The 7970/280x was actually very good at ETH only at the beginning. With DaggerCoins at Epoch #0 or #1 or so it can get like 28MH/s. And a year ago you could of found them on Craigslist for $100 second hand. The R9 290 while it was a little faster was always expensive to buy because it had high demand for gamers and was hard to find for less than $200. So the 280x was a better choice if it wasn't for the DAG bug.

The Dag size is not an issue for 4GB cards. Even 3GB cards will be OK until November 2018 and the Dag size won't reach 4GB until something like 2020. ETH will move to POS long before that.

Using OverdriveNTool from here: https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/overdriventool-tool-for-amd-polaris-gpus.416116 (https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/overdriventool-tool-for-amd-polaris-gpus.416116)
you can disable all power states except P7 for gpu and P2 for memory, that way the undervolt will be retained since gpu will always be at the highest performance state
and never throttle down.
The cards will consume more power when idle that way but for a mining ring that is irrelevant.

Hi,

I have faced issues after upgrading/updating to the blockchain driver. I am suspecting 1 of my gpus might be bricked.

I have 4x identical powercolor rx 580 8gbs, they were running around 64C+- degrees. After the blockchain driver one of the gpus started functioning unstable.

After trying many things I have realized that power draw of this card is lowering down to 80w sometimes 40w and back to 110w as it should be. so the graph is up and down all the way. Normally gpu only power draw for each card is 110w, as the others run and draw constantly.

So there is something wrong with this cards, heat is higher than the others, power draw is unstable and it causes watchdog gpu hang error.

What do you guys think might be the issue with this card?

I went back to the old drivers.  Without undervolt tools this has to be changed in Bios which is a pain and hard to edit on the fly.   It will be worth it when the DAG becomes a bigger issue, but not right now.

It's really surprising how many people think this is great though.  You should really undervolt...

I have undervolted my cards from bios as I have faced the issue like most people with latest driver. Reverting back to previous driver does not change anything. I still have 1 card functioning unstable. I am afraid it might be related to hardware issue

Maybe in your area you had better luck but I also got them refurbished from NewEgg last year and it was the best deal out of anything I found on Craigslist. On Craigslist alone it was at least >$200 and they were rare and hard to come by. I think since they were flagship models they were made in smaller quantities than the Tahiti.

The Tahiti were flooded on Craigslist, probably due to Litecoin mining days as I found that almost 50% of the ones I bought off Craigslist were mined at some point in their life.

I'd like to ask owners of rx 570 4gb. anyone has tested beta drivers on higher DAG epoch like #180?

I doubt wether mount 2 rx 570 rigs or one with gtx 1070

because rx 570 are 4gb model and maybe in future it will be too low to mine anything...

which would be your recommendation?

thanks in advance

The Dag size is not an issue for 4GB cards. Even 3GB cards will be OK until November 2018 and the Dag size won't reach 4GB until something like 2020. ETH will move to POS long before that.

Thanks man I was worried about the dag difficulty, knowing this I might consider the 1060 6gb because the rx 580 8gb are hard to find and expensive.

Hi guys,
today I've installed a new card, re-installed driver and started miner.

Here is what I've seen:

It looks like that new drivers simply emulate the dag 128 and by this way miner gives high hashrate.

Has anyone gotten the Afterburner 4.4.4 beta version to work with the blockchain driver? I find that wattman to be a pain when tweaking OC settings because crashes always reset all the settings for each and all GPUs. Any advise will be appreciated.

I have installed Afterburner 4.4 beta 16 with the blockchain driver and my rig is still stable after 48 hrs. Do not alter the wattman mclock and cclock settings, only use Afterburner to find the stable mclock and cclock settings for each GPU. I also re-installed windows 10 and disabled windows updates and windows defender.

Hi, first post.

I waste a such of hours trying to install on W7 without results (claymore crash)

Finally i decided install on W10 and with my Rx570 got a bouncing 28 eth and 700 dcr.


-Rx 570 Asus Strixx 4GB
--Straps 1:1500->1:2000 // 2:1500->2:2000
--Mem. Elpida
--Mem. clock 1950 mhz
--Core clock 1100 mhz
--Power draw 150w avg  :'(

So, the drivers almost works, the power draw and the bouncing its a problem, but my eth avg increase in almost 2 mh/s in comparation with W7 and lasted drivers, and the electricity in my country is pretty cheap, like 0.03 usd per k/w. So i will use this drivers for now.

Hi,

I have faced issues after upgrading/updating to the blockchain driver. I am suspecting 1 of my gpus might be bricked.

I have 4x identical powercolor rx 580 8gbs, they were running around 64C+- degrees. After the blockchain driver one of the gpus started functioning unstable.

After trying many things I have realized that power draw of this card is lowering down to 80w sometimes 40w and back to 110w as it should be. so the graph is up and down all the way. Normally gpu only power draw for each card is 110w, as the others run and draw constantly.

So there is something wrong with this cards, heat is higher than the others, power draw is unstable and it causes watchdog gpu hang error.

What do you guys think might be the issue with this card?

I have the same issue with a MSI Gaming X 4G. It heats up too quickly and the fan does not ramp it up. Afterburner beta will control it only when it is open but it crashed the computer after a few minutes. Wattman crashes after 20 minutes. I haven't tried claymore controlling the fan yet.
The only way to make it work is put a big fan in front of it so the fan doesn't do anything.
If anyone has ideas I'm open to trying.

Not a good bios mod! You can undervolt in bios, I've showed how in the guide, link in my signature. Then you can undervolt more in AB. 1100MHz should be like 800-850mV even less.

Claymore is working on a new miner. AMD is always making some changes, but that is usually not miner friendly.
There is some DAG issue too. It shows sometimes in miner DAG 129 or DAG 128. That is maybe an issue with Ethermine pool. Changing pool might be helpful.

Not related to miner, or drivers. It is pool issue (server issue on eu2).

But fact is that new driver does not have option for voltage control, like for eg. 17.2.1. On my rig average power consumption is 250w more.

Tried installing the blockchain driver on a FRESH Win7 install yesterday.

Per it's release notes, it SPECIFICALLY states it supports the R9 290 (I had 2 of those in the machine) and it looked like it was supposed to support the "R7 graphics" in the A10-7860k in that machine.

 Actual results - it installed, but flat out did not recognise the A10 iGPU at all (came up as "standard VGA adapter" in device manager) and would not install on that no matter what I did.
 It SUPPOSEDLY installed on the R9 cards, but NO OPENCL SUPPORT both per GPU-Z and from trying to run openCL software like the DNet client, Claymore ZEC miner, and both Genoil and QTMiner for ETH - no matter what I tried, it flat out WOULD NOT INSTALL OpenCL.

 Without OpenCL support, there is ZERO POINT TO THIS BROKEN DRIVER VERSION.

 Makes me wonder, YET AGAIN, if AMD bothers TESTING their crap RElive bloatware on all of the cards and OS they CLAIM the stuff is supposed to work on.


 Machine is now happily working Moowrapper/BOINC/Dnet via LINUX (took me about an hour to "clone" a pre-built USB key installation over to that machine's HD - most of that waiting on DD to copy the installation over - thank goodness for 15.12 drivers!).


 AMD drivers have been such a total load of bloatware garbage often BROKEN nightmare since 15.12 (though some of the 16.x versions were tolerable) that I'm about to the point of just saying "forget AMD, I'm going all NVidia" for GPUs and I've been looking seriously into alternatives for my current "go-to" AM3+ based platform.

 I've ALREADY decided to completely ignore Vega (the pricing BS coupled with the low performance and INefficiency had me thinking "don't bother" already) and the RX 5xx series (after ONE MORE TIME around the "Relive is bloatware garbage" block, I refuse to even bother LOOKING at another Relive driver version ever again).

 Don't even get me STARTED on AMDGPU-PRO on the LINUX side - they're STILL trying to play catchup on support of even the R9 series, the available tools are an even bigger joke than ATICONFIG, no support AT ALL for Tahiti after 2 bloody YEARS but they can support low-end junk like the R7 250????
 NVidia LINUX support was a tossup for AMD even back in the fglrx days - since the move to AMDGPU it's been no competition at all.

 They don't seem to realise how much their "penny wise, pound foolish" short-sighted "don't care about LINUX, don't worry about putting competant work into drivers" attitude is poisoning the well among us long-time AMD fans.

 If AMD doesn't get their act together on GPUs, they might just find themselves in the position of being PERMANENTLY locked into trying to compete only in the "value" segment - and if it wasn't for cryptocoin mining, they'd be losing out even THERE at this point.

AMD updated beta for win10x64 (from Aug23) and win7:
http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/Radeon-Software-Crimson-ReLive-Edition-Beta-for-[Suspicious link removed]pute-Release-Notes.aspx
Both builds have same version of graphics driver - 22.19.659.0

My test rig with 6 x RX470 Powercolor with hynix memory, clocks 1100/1820, timings from 1375mhz strap, win10x64, claymore 9.8
16.7.3 driver = 149MH/s ETH + 4400MH/s DCR
17.8.1 driver = 149MH/s ETH + 4400MH/s DCR
Aug11 beta = 157MH/s ETH + 4670MH/s DCR
Aug23 beta = 157MH/s ETH + 4670MH/s DCR

Profit boost is ~5.5% in dual-minig mode and ~4% in ETH only mode.

BUT!
I have hardcoded voltage and offset in bioses of my RX470s (1000mV in all fields and offset -16 ~= -100mV), so with old drivers they worked with 900mV in idle, and ~880mV under load.
But new drivers override some voltage settings.
So with no modifications theese RX470 worked with 1080mV and offset -16 ~= 960-980mV under load.
Power consumption increased from ~900W to ~1050W.
Changing offset to -32 (~ -200mV) with good old Wattool v0.92 lowered voltage to desired 860-880mV and power consumption lowered to expected ~900W.
I am going to make a 24-48 hours test, if it works stable, I will force ofsset -32 in bioses...

Give them a break, at least they are trying to help out miners which is more than they have ever done up until this point.

You also need to realize they are balancing dual priorities, on the one hand trying to help out miners with more performance, but at the same time they need to make sure their cards are operated within acceptable tolerance as to not cause extra support calls or even RMAs due to outright failures.

In the meantime other coins have become more profitable than ETH to mine, so getting Wattool to work with this matters less...  ETH seems to be dropping out of the best coins to mine pretty rapidly. 

I would modify all my cards bios for the Eth settings, but with other coins being more profitable I cant justify the time to do that until Eth is more profitabke again, which may never happen...

on one rig, this driver restored the full hashrate (25 -> 27.8 ). On the second rig, it restored much less (25 -> 26.8 ).

One has windows 10, the other windows 10 creators edition.

Edit: nevermind. Claymore miner cannot set nor read clocks/fans/voltages for this driver.  Clocks were lower.

Yes, try Claymore v10.0 miner. Use -mvddc to set memory voltage and -cvddc to set core voltage.

does this also work with bios modded cards?

Yes, it does.
Download drivers -> Uninstall previous version drivers via DDU in Safe mode -> Install Blockchain Drivers normally using GUI -> Patch drivers using AMD Pixel clock patcher -> Restart.

SO my drivers have recently started crashing as of yesterday, cannot get my machine stable. Using the August block chain drivers.

atikmdag.sys and dxgkrnl.sys crash. Reports that THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER

SGMINER mines fine I just discovered. Switching back to Claymore now to see if it crashes again.

new drivers have mode to switch between graphics and compute
test with them

i install on win7 before that ddu.
apply atikmdag patch.
reboot.
before going into windows, screen is black, and that's it.

With the newest driver 17.11.2 the problem is still there, is there any workaround?

Install Blockchain drivers and there will be no problem. The only "catch" is, that they only work on win10 ;)

try to install driver from device manager, and located the file amd driver for dag issue... and then patch atikmdag maybe it can solved the problem...

RX 480 + RX 580 + RX 570 here.

Newest AMD drivers do have equal performance to August blockchain drivers, but they aren't stable on my rig. Claymore's crashes often, even Firefox crashes, for god's sake.

Reverting to August drivers fixed it. Never had an issue with them.

Is there a dag fix for windows 8.1? All these drivers are for 10 and 7...no support for 8.1? Why?

And why on Windows 7 there is no "Compute" option in Wattman settings?

sorry to be that hobbyist dude who jumps on a forum, reads the first ten posts of a 14 page thread, and then asks noobish questions... but here goes.

I followed the directions in this video that i found (haha fake news russia ha ha)
https://ruclip.com/video/EXLahUxmTOI/how-to-optimize-amd-rx-470480570580-cards-for-mining-full-guide.html

i used the right rom to flash the bios on my card (RX 570 Elpida 1750MHz). i made sure to get the most recent win7 64 bit version of all of the tools and utilities involved. nothing fails during install (i have not scoured log files as i don't know what is normal or what to look for). when i'm done, gpu-z looks happy, windows is happy, but none of my miners will run. all of the benchmark test on nicehash fail. i was on a smartcash pool and that won't work either.

i revert to original card bios and wipe the drivers again and put the factory DVD driver install disk back in... and I'm back up and running. weird thing though, when the factory drivers / bios are installed and everything works, GPU-z says the Bandwidth is Unknown, GPU Clock Memory reads 0 MHz, everything else appears normal.

so it appears to just be that the AMD blockchain driver doesn't work on my machine and/or i need more or fewer windows updates. it's an older machine (2011 intel board that i had to flash the bios on to get it to recognize the PCIe 3.0 card), so maybe i just need an actual properly built modern computer...

anyone have any ideas, instructions, links that i can't find with my own googling skills, snarky and cutting but true replies about my stupid noobish post?

thanks folks!

The blockchain driver released by AMD has issues on Windows 7. You can try installing the blockchain driver released by Robinhood manually after running DDU in safe mode to uninstall all the GPU drivers. Make sure to enable the option in DDU to disable the Windows automatic driver install. Then just reboot and install the driver manually. With a modded Bios on a RX 570 you also need to run the pixel patch to disable the driver signature check after installing the driver or you will have a code 43 error in the Windows Device Manager and the cards won't work.

Thanks Vann!

Will the blockchain driver increase hashrates across the board or is it just when mining ETH?

The blockchain driver fixes the Dag file epoch hash drop issue that Polaris cards have with Ethash coins that have a Dag file larger than 2GB. No difference in other algorithms.
