The new features in this release (since 5.8b) are:

  • Fixed a crash on Linux when mining on RDNA2 AMD cards (RX6x00) with older drivers
  • Removed error messages when mining on fanless Nvidia cards

The changes of the previous beta (5.8b) since the last version (5.7b) are:

  • Implemented optimized kernels for AMD RX6600XT cards
  • Added support for the latest AMD Windows drivers (21.10.2, 21.10.1, 21.9.2, and 21.9.1). Note that any AMD cards older than Polaris (RX470/480/570/580/590) won't work with the latest AMD drivers.
  • Added support for the latest AMD Linux drivers 21.30
  • The latest AMD drivers (21.9.1 and later for Windows, and 21.30 and later for Linux) dropped support for the older kernels, so we changed the kernels for AMD Polaris cards to support these new drivers. There is a very small speed improvement (less than 0.1% on average) with the new kernels and the new drivers on Polaris cards
  • Other fixes and small improvements

For more robust integrity check, you can use our GPG public key, which was verifyed with ETH transaction from our main devfee account as explained here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2647654.msg56755869#msg56755869. Here are the signatures for the files in this release:


Known issues (driver incompatibilities, etc.) and workarounds:

  • AMD Radeon VII cards will not work with Windows drivers 21.6.1 or higher, or Linux drivers 21.20 or higher - you need to use older drivers for proper operation of these cards
  • AMD Vega cards will not work with Linux drivers 21.20 or higher
  • Some Nvidia cards will report a lot of stale shares under Windows 11. Using the same driver version under Windows 10 resolves the issue.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: 5700XT and AMD 21.10.2 driver on: October 20, 2021, 11:29:32 PM
Is anyone running 5700XT with AMD 21.10.2 driver? The reason I ask is because I have one rig with 5700XT only and uses 21.3.2 for now. It is stable. I got one 6600 which requires 21.10.2. If I add 6600 onto the rig with 5700XT, I will have to use 21.10.2 driver. Please let me know if there is any issue to use 21.10.2 with 5700XT or not. 
    It shouldn't be a problem to run 5700XT and 6600 on the same rig with 21.10.2. The latest drivers will have problems only with very old cards like Baffin or Gfx804 (RX 460/550/560), or anything older than Polaris. Polaris cards (RX 470/480/570/580/590), Vega, RX5x00, and RX6x00 cards will work fine with the latest drivers. We haven't tested with 6600 yet but the we managed to order a few of them so we will be able to confirm that they work in a week or so.


Anybody got PM  5.8b working in linux with multiple RX6800XT on driver 21.30 or any driver above 20.40?

I was delighted to see the update for the beta version 5.8b above however with a fresh install of ubuntu 20.04.3 kernel 5.11 and driver 21.30 promised working in PM post above but clinfo doesnt even see a single card just the IGFX which obv isnt used for mining. Using chipset B550 and the only way i have ever been able to get pm working under ubuntu on driver later than 20.40 is single GPU only long ago. Maybe its a bios thing im not used to such modern mobo, currently got pci set to gen 1 - Any ideas? And in my defence i wil state that without touching a bios setting i can boot into Manjaro and mine with 6 x RX6800XT although stale shares are running around 20% using driver 20.40 and opencl as per this info: https://community.amd.com/t5/drivers-software/6900xt-and-opencl-on-linux/td-p/439474/page/2


Read about an issue with multiple GPUs caused by ROCR PCIE 3.0 atomics as per link below...have tried it without success...... Currently stuck on Manjero with driver 20.40 and clkernel0 which gives an undesirable stale share volume though it is stable and have full control...

https://www.reddit.com/r/gpumining/comments/ptmyjd/ubuntu_20043_amdgpu_2130_opencl_rocr_rocm/
   Unfortunately this is a limitation of the new ROCr driver itself - it usually means that the RX6x00 cards will work only on the PCIe slots that are connected directly to the CPU PCIe lanes. On the most consumer-level motherboards this means only 1 or 2 slots (usually the first PCIe 16x slot closer to the CPU socket). However, if you are able to see RX6800 in other slots using the older drivers (like 20.40), the upcoming PhoenixMiner 5.8c for Linux should solve the stale shares problem.

Hello,

I have a Nvidia CMP 170HX card which is fanless. I want to use it with phoenixminer and HiveOS but Phoenixminer gives an error that it cannot get fan speed infomation back. Any advice how to solve this problem?
     We will check what can be done, perhaps to report this once and then just report 0% as fan speed without further errors. As we are making some fixes in Linux version of 5.8b for some unrelated problems, we will include this in 5.8c, which will be ready in a day or two. Note that 5.8b for Windows has no important issues so far, and will probably be the release version soon.


When should we expect new release? Can you please give us ETA so we don't panic next time when you disappear from the forum for some time?
     Before the end of the year. We are monitoring the forum all the time but will only react if something extraordinary happens. It's just not possible to answer every post with questions.



I guess I'm one of the happy miners today.
I did the upgrade to 5.8b yesterday. My speed increased from 166.25 to 166.683 MH/s
Not a big gain but it is an improvement and I like it. No issues at all so far.
Been running 24 hrs.

Thanks Phoenix

    Well, that's better than in our internal testing. Probably because of the more extreme timings on your cards - we keep our cards on fairly conservative timings to be sure that when something goes wrong, it's not an overclocking instability.

Is PM fully compatible with WIN11 ? Any trouble with win11 ? I'm a small miner using my main computer which is win11 compliant but i'm concerned about any issue if i patch it to 11.
   Yes, we have tested on Windows 11 with both AMD and Nvidia cards, everything should work as in Win10 with the same drivers.


Why you don't keep downloads only in your 1st post in this topic?
And post notification eventually for a new version as a replies,
but keep all downloads in your 1st post only and not from a replies.
    Because then everyone will download and install the beta version from the first post, ignoring that it is in "beta" status, and if there are some problems with it we will never hear the end of it. Plus, it is not likely that this will stop the "fake" updates from appearing in our thread.


how to use optimized kernels for AMD RX6600XT cards ?
    They will be used automatically instead of the generic kernels, leading to slightly higher hashrate and much less stale shares.



I agree with Rickirs,unless you specifically implement the LHR mode like many of the other miners are doing you are going to lose clients from the Nvidia side,personally I am happy from quite a lot of time with your miner as I mainly have AMD cards but it is a shame that you have not implemented some kind of LHR tune yet,hopefully this will be fixed in the upcoming releases.
     Hopefully there will be kernels for Nvidia LHR cards in the next release. It is a shame but we don't strive to be the best in everything - all power to our competitors that implemented it before us. After all, the crypto is doomed if is not sufficiently decentralized, including in the area of mining software.



Also, I have on the way RX 6600 non-XT. Is that card will be supported in the beta release the same way as the XT models?
   Should be supported, but we were unable to test because we don't have 6600 non-XT yet in our hands. Let us know if you have any problems with it.

PhoenixMiner 5.7b is officially released. You can find the download link and the checksums in the first post of this thread.

It is the same release as the one that was posted here as beta version, so if you are already running it, there is no need to upgrade.

Note that 5.7b supports the latest AMD Windows drivers 21.8.1 but it doesn't support the latest AMD Linux drivers 21.30. If you have AMD 6x00 card and you want to use Linux, you should use AMD drivers 21.20 but for any older AMD cards, you should stick with AMD drivers 20.30 (the latest stable PAL drivers without bugs).

The new features in this release are:

  • Implemented new "turbo" kernels (-clkernel 3) for AMD Polaris cards that can work with the current DAG sizes over 4 GB. Note that -clkernel 3 uses double the VRAM and will provide slightly faster hashrate with slightly higher power consumption. You can use the -rvram command-line parameter to specify how much VRAM to be left unused
  • Increased the maximum supported DAG epoch to 600 (i.e. until about Sep 2023)
  • Implemented full hardware control for AMD RX6900/6800/6700 cards under Linux. Note that with these cards under Linux you need to specify relative core voltage: e.g. -cclock -50 will set the core voltage to be 50 mV under the default value
  • Added ROCr kernels for Vega, Radeon VII and Navi cards. With these kernels you will be able to run these cards with Linux drivers 20.45 and later but the performance will be lower than with the older PAL drivers and kernels. We recommend using AMD Linux driver 20.30 for all cards except RX6900/6800/6700
  • Fixed an issue causing crashing with some RX6900/6800/6700 cards under Linux (there is no need to run these cards with -clkernel 0 anymore)
  • Added support for AMD Windows drivers up to 21.7.2. Note that Radeon VII cards will not work with drivers 21.6.1 or higher - you need to use older drivers for proper operation of these cards
  • Added support for AMD Linux drivers up to 21.20 (use older drivers for Vega or Radeon VII cards as they will not work with 21.20)
  • Numerous other fixes and small improvements

I see now you have added full support for the Rx 6800 XT cards.I was having some issues with one such card Rx 6800 Xt in the 5.6b miner,as after a few hours this card hashrate was going to 0.Now I have just started 5.6d and will report back if any problems are still there.What driver do you suggest for this new miner 5.6 d?

   The latest Windows drivers should be fine. Use -hstats 2 to see the actual clocks/voltages on the card when mining. Also, either use PhoenixMiner exclusively for hardware control, or other OC program. If you use both, the problems are all but guaranteed.




@PhoenixMiner

Are you adding ZIL dag pre-allocation anytime soon?

somewhat strange behavior: I have updated some of my ETH+ZIL Polaris rigs to 20.9.1 + PM 5.6D (the performance is about 0.3-0.5% higher, with 1-3% lower power consumption)  however now each time the switch is happening ALL the updated rigs go down, some random GPUs are failing to init the DAG (12GPU rigs), while 19.12.2 +PM 5.5C is working fine.
  Yes, it will be included in the next release. Which switch is causing the problems? From ETH to ZIL or the reverse? In any case, it is unlikely that this has anything to do with the PhoenixMiner version, it is more likely that the newer drivers are the culprit. We would suggest trying 20.4.x as the latest drivers that limit the DAG size to 4 GB if you have stability issues with 20.5.1 and later versions.



I have had this several times with my GitHub repositories with miners forks.
So, GitHub blocks accounts for five reasons:
1. Someone has complained
2. Automatically by mistake
3. Someone forked the repository from a "dirty" account (When a fraudulent account is created and it starts to fork normal accounts, good chain accounts are sometimes also blocked.
4. The presence of two accounts.
5. Someone spammed the issues branch (sometimes GitHub blocks the account itself)

What I used to do and always got amnesty:
1. Write to support (https://support.github.com/contact/account) and ask the reason for blocking. In a response letter (2-3 days), they always write the reason for blocking the account. They will also ask you to describe your files and what they do.
After they receive this information, then in 99% of cases the unlocking takes place, if you do not drag out for a long time.

I always wrote that this is a cryptocurrency miner such as NiceHash and asked why then NiceHash is not blocked? After all, this is essentially the same miner. After that I was always unblocked Smiley

Then the account never gets the Suspended status again.
Try to write support, I think it will help.
  We appreciate the suggestions but for the time being we are done with github. If they at least had warned us, we would have taken measures to avoid this disruption (however short) but to terminate our account without even an e-mail message is just unacceptable. About what you can expect from Microsoft owned company.




When a GPU crashes, is there any indication in the log of which card crashed? I normally look to see which one is stuck at 0 MH/s but sometimes the card crashes and then resumes mining normally. Is there an event logged anywhere?
   If the GPU doesn't bring down the whole rig, you should see something like "GPUx is not responding" towards the end of the log.




That was fast.  Cheesy

It certainly looks like you guys were anticipating something like this was going to happen.  Kudos for getting your own repo ready quickly.
  We learned some lessons from the MEGA fiasco a couple of months ago. Hopefully this would be the last time something like this happens.

I dont remmeber they ever gave a  d version out, it was either beta like 5.5b
or the release 5.5c

5.5d  has been usually malware

checked the HASH of 5.5C  on the new website and old file and they match but hte 5.5D  is a new file so if phonexminers account on here is hacked and their github is hacked... ummm
  5.6d is a legitimate version (if you download it from the link in the first post, and compare the checksums for a good measure). It replaced the 5.6c, which contains a regression bug (not showing the Nvidia GPU temperatures unless -hstats 2 is used). The problem was annoying enough and easy to fix, so we decided to just release 5.6d instead of waiting about a month or more before releasing the fix with the next PhoenixMiner version.



The above post (from the forum user stef_stef) probably contains malware! Do not download anything from the links in his post!

Our GitHub account was terminated (not a big surprise after they deleted some other mining software repos but we kind of liked the functionality there). Again, no explanation was given - they just don't want to host popular mining software it seems.

Our new host is up and running. You can find the latest version of PhoenixMiner (as well as older releases and beta versions) here:

As always, make sure to compare the checksums of the downloaded files with these from the first post of this thread. This is a good idea for any download and takes mere seconds to do.


It very much did contain malware as I woke up and found I had been TeamViewer?(not sure) hacked and they transferred out 2.34 BTC (but left 0.27, wonder why?) among other coins.  Don't be dumb like me, just thought I'd share, sad day for me.  There isn't anything that can be done about it I'm guessing?

All in all I am grateful they didn't take everything but it does hurt quite a bit...  the shock is wearing off and now feeling a bit sickly.  
  That is really bad! The best thing you can do is try to check the destination address and if it is in some of the big exchanges, you try writing them to at least block the account of the scammers.

  The malicious post was deleted by the admins without 30 minutes or so, and we reported it as soon as we noticed it. The github account that it linked was created just yesterday. Please, please, do not download anything PhoenixMIner-releated from posts that are not from our account! And always compare the checksums - it is quite easy to do and can spare you a lot of trouble. Additional good security practice is to always keep your private keys encrypted, and not on the same machine from which you are making the transactions.



Hi. Can someone give a good guide to what I should compare the checksums(the first post no longer has checksums for 5.6c) I have been running PhoenixMiner_5.6c. But I no checksums I can find match my zip or my exe.
I got it from github several days ago. which seems down now. Yhis whole situation with nicehash and multiple compromised versions seems odd.
  Here is our post with the checksums of 5.6c: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2647654.msg56968316#msg56968316



An incident with our share validation engine caused shares to be rejected for ~30 minutes. As compensation, the mining and MEV fees on Ethermine will be lowered to 0% for 48 hours starting from the 12th of May 2021 15:30 UTC. Please accept our appologies for this incident & thank you for mining with us.


what is this?
   There was a problem with ethermine pool, causing a lot valid shares to be rejected as invalid. They will compensate the miners as explained in their tweet.

Has anyone figured out the low hashrate problem on Windows 7 when using NVIDIA GTX10xx series cards, RTX cards work fine on Win7 and hash at full speed, I tried diff versions of PM and still only get about half the speed, I got 14 total rigs, 6 rigs on Win7 that work great with no problems but had to switch to GMINER for the time being, and 8 rigs on Win10 using PM with no problems.

Any ideas, I think the last version that worked ok with Win7 if I remember was 5.2 or earlier.
   We will try to reproduce the problem on Windows 7 rig. Is this also happening with older drivers?



@Phonexminer

Noticed some nasty bugs:

* Win10, 1060 6GB cards, when GPUs clocks are applied via miner with command line parameters, clocks/voltages/memory,
miner start reporting wrong power consumption.. [unreal low one],
you can check that by comparing the power consumption reported by miner with other tools like GPU-Z and similar.
When all those options are removed, (and miner no longer control the GPU parameters like clocks/voltages)
the miner start reporting the correct power consumption.

* Win10, for 3080 GPU when using command line option "-tmaxmem xx",
it cause brutal share staling for all GPUs (with regardless of GPU's models used in the same rig)
lag of 2888ms, 3000ms, 300ms in that range randomly vary between 300ms - 3000ms.
When this option is removed, all found shares return to normal latency of 38ms for all GPUs[/color]
   We will need logs to reproduce these problems, as we haven't seen anything similar on our test rigs.

The new beta version is finally ready. You can download PhoenixMiner 5.6d from here:

PhoenixMiner_5.6d_Windows.zip (GitHub) link removed
PhoenixMiner_5.6d_Linux.tar.gz (GitHub) link removed



The new features in this release are:

  • The problem with the missing GPU temperatures on Nvidia GPUs is fixed
  • Added native kernels for AMD RX6700 GPUs. These are faster than the generic kernels and produce a lot less stale shares
  • Increase the max supported DAG epoch to 550 (should be enough to about Jan 2023)
  • Full support for setting clocks, fan speeds, voltages, and memory timings of AMD RX6900/6800/6700 cards
  • The specific hashrate is now shown in the form of kilo hashes per joule (kH/J). Example: if a GPU has hashrate of 30 MH/s with 100W power usage, the specific hashrate is 300 kH/J
  • Added new command-line parameters -ttj and -ttmem, allowing automatic fan speed control based on GPU hotspot (junction), and memory temperatures respectively. Example: -ttmem 83 will keep the GPU memory temperature at or bellow 83C by increasing the fan speed as necessary. These parameters can be combined with -tt, as well as with each other. These options are supported only on AMD GPUs that report junction and memory temperatures
  • Added new command-line parameters -tmaxj and -tmaxmem, allowing to decrease the GPU usage when the GPU hotspot (junction), or GPU memory temperatures are above the specified thresholds. These options are supported only on AMD GPUs that report junction and memory temperatures
  • Added support for AMD Windows drivers 21.3.2, and 21.3.1
  • Added support for AMD Linux drivers 20.50.x. Use this drivers only if you have Polaris or older GPUs, or the latest RX6x000 GPUs. WARNING: Vega, Radeon VII, and Navi GPUs won't work with these drivers!
  • Turn off the zero fan feature on AMD cards whenever a fixed fan speed is used (e.g. -tt -40), or when an auto fan with min fan speed is used (e.g. -tt 63 -minfan 35). To disable this feature, add -fanstop 1 command-line parameter
  • When -mcdag 1 is specified under Linux, the miner will not wait for the daggen.sh script to finish before starting to generate the DAGs. Instead it will for a fixed 7 seconds. This allows you to do all the following in the daggen.sh: turn off the overclocking of Nvidia GPUs, sleep for 30-60 seconds to allow time for DAG generation, and then re-apply the overclocking of the Nvidia GPUs
  • Other small improvements and fixes

The support for -ttj, -ttmem, -tmaxj, and -tmaxmem for Nvidia 3090 and 3080 GPUs is not yet ready for release. We hope to have it ready for the final 5.6 release.

The problem with the missing GPU temperatures on Nvidia GPUs is fixed and we released new version with the fix: PhoenixMiner 5.6d. You can find the download links and checksums in the first post of this thread.

If you are already running 5.6c and your rigs are not showing GPU temperatures, the easiest fix is to add the command-line option -hstats 2

Of course, you can also upgrade to PhoenixMiner 5.6d but the only difference between 5.6c and 5.6d is the fixed problem with GPU temperatures not shown with some Nvidia cards.

Sorry about this regression, we happen to run all of our test rigs with -hstats 2 and that's why we didn't detect the problem sooner.

  • Added new command-line parameters -tmaxj and -tmaxmem, allowing to decrease the GPU usage when the GPU hotspot (junction), or GPU memory temperatures are above the specified thresholds. These options are supported only on AMD GPUs that report junction and memory temperatures
  • Added support for AMD Windows drivers 21.3.2, and 21.3.1
  • Added support for AMD Linux drivers 20.50.x. Use this drivers only if you have Polaris or older GPUs, or the latest RX6x000 GPUs. WARNING: Vega, Radeon VII, and Navi GPUs won't work with these drivers!
  • Turn off the zero fan feature on AMD cards whenever a fixed fan speed is used (e.g. -tt -40), or when an auto fan with min fan speed is used (e.g. -tt 63 -minfan 35). To disable this feature, add -fanstop 1 command-line parameter
  • When -mcdag 1 is specified under Linux, the miner will not wait for the daggen.sh script to finish before starting to generate the DAGs. Instead it will for a fixed 7 seconds. This allows you to do all the following in the daggen.sh: turn off the overclocking of Nvidia GPUs, sleep for 30-60 seconds to allow time for DAG generation, and then re-apply the overclocking of the Nvidia GPUs
  • Other small improvements and fixes

The support for -ttj, -ttmem, -tmaxj, and -tmaxmem for Nvidia 3090 and 3080 GPUs is not yet ready for release. We hope to have it ready for the final 5.6 release.

For more robust integrity check, you can use our GPG public key, which was verifyed with ETH transaction from our main devfee account as explained here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2647654.msg56755869#msg56755869. Here are the signatures for the files in this release:

Here is how we are going to proceed to publish our singing GnuPG key, and verify that it is in fact ours:
  • Our GpuPG key pair is already generated and tested
  • We will make a transaction from our defvee account at 0x008c26f3a2Ca8bdC11e5891e0278c9436B6F5d1E to an address 0xF9403D7EAE2AC5F4C361015E654C5927EE163067 that is the same as the fingerprint of our GpuPG public key (key fingerprints and ETH addresses have the same size). The ETH in the transaction will be "burned" so the amount will be 9.876 ETH this time.
  • After the transaction is confirmed, we will publish the public key here, and on our Github
  • All future releases of PhoenixMiner will be signed with this public key (we will also continue to provide the checksums as before).

EDIT: The transaction is now confirmed: https://etherscan.io/tx/0xfd6896cc79481c3b8e746123279c6bdbf65051c8302e9b55e9597c618be11b37

The first beta of the new version will be released next week. Thank you for your patience - there were quite a lot of small bugs to find and fix before the release.

We are also looking at creating more robust signing scheme with GnuPG, and we will add the fingerprint of our certificate in another "public" ETH transaction from our main devfee account, which will be announced in advance. This will add additional layer of security, making impossible for someone to try releasing fake versions of PhoenixMiner.

Quote from: Ursul0
...
Im trying to figure out a way *if possible at all ** to track pool reply times / stratum get_work response times - if, for example, it takes grater than >100ms from current pool port But at the same time whilst tracking ping reply from the other pool ports are <100ms =40ms (faster) then get the miner to switch to the faster pool port to continue mining.

..in a nutshell monitor real-time (or on average) pool ping/latency times..

My observations is that during the late evening /early hrs morning (my time) they deprioritize traffic coming from .EU region and ping times climb, Then when they have more activity over in .ch time pings drop. along these lines,  similar to that effect.

I haven't manged to track all their ports in-depth but cursory observations confirm this.
To date the best way I have to do this is to restart the miner on the new port when I see my stales counts climb.
But since this requires me to monitor rig console then it can be inefficient as I do need some sleep Smiley

Perhaps a way to look at this is to track the stale's report count and if it goes over the set threshold then trigger miner to swap ports.. As opposed to actually tracking stratum-ping times with hat utility i posted a few pages back in this thread maybe this could be one approach to skin the same cat sort of speak.

interested to get feedback/suggestions/tip's/ideas.
cheers
    This is something that we have on our "nice to have" list but not sure when (or even if) it will be implemented, as it crosses the boundary between miner, and rig management software. In any case, we will start implementing at least part of this functionality by tracking the average share acceptance times (these are better than just the pings because they also reflect the pool load), and the average times between jobs which can be used to estimate the expected stale shares.




Just a note for the Devs:

It would be great to have a feature to limit the mining power of new NVIDIA cards, taking into VRAM junction temps... I'm not sure if that's possible, but if I would have a parameter to let the miner knows that I don't want to go over (let's say) 90 on VRAMs Junctions and the miner would reduce the power to achieve that...would be awesome....

Just a silly idea, but wanted to share it with you.
hope it helps
Regards,
AT'
    We are working on this, it will be ready for AMD cards in the next release but it may take a little bit longer for 3080/3090 cards.

Is there a secure SSL Port for mining ETC on ethermine.org like this:

I can only seem to find this that works:
us1-etc.ethermine.org:4444

Surely I missed this somewhere.

Any chance we can load both DAG's for ETH and ZIL to the VRAM? Would love this feature on this miner... my favorite and for me the most stable.

Happy to contribute ($ETH) to the effort if this can get done... DM me.

Great work BTW!

Cheers!

  No need to contribute. We will be adding this but it's not 100% sure that the feature will make it in this release - we will try our best.




Still wondering how many GBs do you need to use Kernel 3. Benching in a lower epoch, I'm getting 0.250 more MHs with Kernel 3 than 1....
 
   You need exactly double the DAG size. We are working on updated -clkernel 3 kernels that will use whatever memory is available but the price is somewhat lower speed-up.

   The problem is the first card (AMD R9 200), which can't mine ETH anymore. Run the miner with -nvidia command-line argument to use only the second card.




Hi Guys,

So I've been doing some experimenting and have found some interesting stuff on the 1080ti and Phoenix Miner.

There is a magical realm at 60% powerlimit.  In this realm, the Ethlargement Pill and reducing your memory clock will increase hashrate.  I've tested other power limits and they do not act the same.

So with the following settings:  60% powerlimit, +160 core, -900mhz memory = 36.5Mh/s  @ 140Watts

Without the Pill I get 25.5Mh/S.
 
Could easily get 44Mh/s at 80-90% power limit, but that is 200+ watts and hard on the old fans. 

Does anyone have more optimal configs for Mh/Watt?
   You can use -straps 2 instead of the pill. We run our 1080Ti with the following settings: -powlim -20 -mclock +756 -straps 2 -tt 63 -tmax 68 and they give 43-44 MH/s at 200W




I just tried clKernel 3 and the result is this:

GPU1 The option -clKernel 3 is ignored for GPU1

Any hints?
   -clkernel 3 is only for Polaris GPUs - there is no speedup for the newer cards because of the architecture of the memory controller.





I am having problems with a RX 6800 XT, it gives me driver time out error after 30 minutes , 10 minutes, 2 days so it is random.I have 2 of these cards and one Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti and I am using this latest miner 5.5 from Phoenix.Is there any solution to this ?
   PhoenixMiner 5.5c can't control clocks and fan speed on Radeon 6000 series GPUs properly. You need to use AMD control center to set the clocks and then do not use any of the miner options to set clocks, voltages, etc. This is already fixed in the new version, which will be released soon(ish).
