Hi iRonNuke,
We do not understand why you're having this issue with two of your GPUs.
This is happening always with your EVGA 1080, and one of the 1070 Ti, right?
Have you tried the v1.9z version? Do you have the same problem?
Do you experience the same issue if you mine another algo?
Cheers


Thanks for the replies! I have solved it by now, nothing wrong with your miner, maybe it was a little bit more sensitive. But it got worse and affected other algos like ETH, was a faulty PCIe power cable. When I replaced it, your miner worked fine!

Hi iRonNuke,
 
Sorry about that.
If you mine with only one of those GPUs, does it also happen?
We're unsure this is a miniZ issue. At the moment we're still trying to reproduce this error, with no success.
 
Could you check the power consumption? miniZ is a bit more optimized when mining 125,4, when compared to other miners, power (and OCs) requirements may differ. If your power supply is working on its limits, this could create instability.
 
Let us know how it goes.
Cheers

I tried to only mine with the problematic GPUs. It got the same error, even without any core clock but PL. But if I excluded 1 & 2 it worked without errors.

Hi iRonNuke,
Thanks for your message.

Try adding --nvidia to your command line.
This will be fixed in the next version.

Let us know how it goes.
Cheers

No that didn't fix it. Same as before, forgot to mention that when the miner crashes, HiveOS reports GPU 1 & 2 need attention and the rig needs to be restarted.

Why do I get this error with miniZ? I have tried different Nvidia drivers. Always GPU1. Have tried no OC at all. Other miners works.

Anyone have data how a GPU nowadays will perform on Scrypt algo? I saw a USB Scrypt miner like  Futurebit Moonlander USB Scrypt Miner. I think it's doing like 4 MH/s. How about a modern GPU?

I know it isn't profitable, but just want to know the difference between GPU and that small ASIC from like 2014?
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Is GPU mining really dying? on: November 11, 2021, 12:25:33 PM
That is what scammers have been doing since 2010, create new coins from thin air then market them and then dump them prior bullrun ends, repeat next cycle. The coins you mentioned I remember them in 2018, I have not heard about them this cycle around.

Yes apperantly there is some scam coins, and others just fails. But Zclassic I was chocked about, it had a ATH value about $200 back in 2018, then it just dumped all the way to the bottom. I mined a lot of them with my ASIC Bitmain Z9 Mini, it was the most profitable to mine on it, never ROIed because of that Cheesy

Also SnowGem, I really liked it, had a nice wallet and webpage. One day when I checked CoinMarketCap it was just gone Tongue

I'm a miner that stakes some coins like Cardano, Cosmos and Tezos. But the return of staking is VERY low, atleast for me. I calculated if I will invest $5000 into for example Cardano. I will get right now, 21834 ADA (price $2.24). I stake those at 4.91% in Exodus. I will get 1091 ADA ($2445) a year. It will take 20 YEARS to ROI Smiley

My mining rigs have ROIed like 5-7 times since 2017-2019. But that's mainly to the price increase, of course.


ETH going pos will not be any different however most of eth will or was created on pow so it has a lot more chance to survive than the other pos coins. POS coins are like stocks, value from nothing, pyramid scheme. Stocks are also proof of stake hehe but for that to work sheeps have to keep buying in order to increase a value from nothing hehe, reason I never invested on stocks or POS.

Either stocks or PoS coins are made of thin air. They also have a underlying value in a way or another. BUT the value can be highly overpriced, when for example a horde buys massively. But that's with everything, look at some Meme-coins Smiley

But, I agree, a PoW coin SHOULD have a more value because it's some work done that isn't for free. But that's no guarantee ofcourse, I have mined ZCL in 2018 and they are almost GONE. Some other coin like SnowGem also, GONE. Cheesy

Is there any way to support Hawaii cards (ie: R9 270x 2GB)?

I haven't had much luck finding a linux-based miner that can play nicely with these older cards

SRBMiner-MULTI, PhoenixMiner, GMiner they work at least with my R9 390 8GB and RX 580 8GB cards. Probably there are more but I know for sure these miners work.
TRM I must say did work with my R9 390 but I switched to PhoenixMiner.

But your R9 270x 2GB is way to old to be profitable anyway.

LolMiner works just fine with these cards, as well. I'm running two HD7950s with LolMiner doing 20-25 MH/s each @ ETC.

Don't buy the Bitmain Antminer E9! It's mining Ethereum, and we all know that it will go Proof of Stake in early 2022, then you not able to mine Ethereum. The ASIC can't switch to other coins that GPUs can. Well, you actually can mine other Ethash coins. But they are very low cap and has low net hashrate compaired to Ethereum, so your profits will plumber!
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: The future of old gpus on: October 11, 2021, 02:40:34 PM
I love my RX 470480570580, when i get old i will put these gpus to my wall for memory. many thanks for eth and amd. I think these gpu deserves to be legend in my opinion

Yes they are still very good for many different algorithms as well. I have a bunch of them and they are very easy to use! Best GPUs I have in the long run, hassle free.

I have Nvidia 1000/2000/3000 series cards. AMD Vega 56, RX 5700 XT and 6600 XT cards. But Polaris is the most easy to use, that's my thought.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: The future of old gpus on: October 11, 2021, 09:24:52 AM
It depends. I have GPUs mining fine from 2017 when I bought them new (RX 570/580). I also have even older GPUs like R9 290 and HD7950 that I bought second hand and they mines well too.

The conclusion is that they can mine until they arn't profitable anymore. If your question is when they arn't profitable anymore, that's a harder question to answer. As I said above I still mine with HD7950s that are made in 2013, and they are still profitable, but it's crazy times right now. In 2019 GPUs bought in 2017 wasn't profitable Smiley
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: HD7970 and GTX970 on: October 11, 2021, 09:16:39 AM
I have an couple of HD7950 and they can pull like 25 MH/s at Ethereum Classic. Revenue is like $1 a day. Power draws like 150 W if you modify the BIOS. Profit $0,63.

If you have them you can use them, but don't go buy some in this market. You'll probably overpay for them (like all GPUs), but they will be the first ones that gets unprofitable.

About GTX 970 I don't have an experience. But I think they arn't any good at mining. Gaming wise they are still.

Weird that HD7950 is higher than R9 290, i think it should be close to 28-30Mh/s

I don't think it's weird, I have lowered the core clock to just 800 MHz and undervolted it some on the 290 to reduce the power, it's a blower style card and it overheats quite easy, and I don't want the fan to do more like 60% because of the noise. Smiley

Sure it CAN do maybe 28-30 MH/s, but I don't think that the most efficent thing to run at. Like you could do 31-32+ MH/s on Polaris cards, but that's either not efficent over all.

I have a rig with one RX 550 4 GB, one HD 7950 3 GB and one R9 290 4 GB. All mine ETC 59 MH/s @ 398 W at the wall (measured with power meter).

Also it's an 850 W PSU, only bronze rated.

RX 550: 11.35 MH/s
HD7950: 24.46 MH/s
R9 290: 23.13 MH/s

I'm trying to buy older AMD cards because they are really cheap and still profitable, if you known how to config them.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Good plan or bad plan on: April 10, 2021, 12:44:32 PM
Good plan, ofcourse. Smiley Now the prices are extremely high on hardware, the difficulty on the blockchains are high. You are getting very low amount of coins now, the only thing it's very profitable is because the bull market.

When you have free electicity you can mine when there's a loss for others, buy GPUs when in next bear market I say. Buy cheap RTX or RX cards when everyone is quiting Smiley

Didn't think there was anything left to mine. Is this the same Vertcoin that came out in 2014? I remember it used slightly more power than Scrypt and scrypt was already pulling like 300 Watts per GPU from the wall.

I remember mining Dogecoin back in 2014 with 2 of these gpus in a single case. The power from the wall was like almost 700 watts with the power meter. And this was only 2 GPUs. These days we got rigs of 5-6 GPUs pulling the same amount of power.

Crazy times.

Yes it's the same coin. But it has forked. It forks away from ASICs. Have been on LyraRev2 and LyraRev3 before. Don't know what algorighm back in 2014. Never the less, it's a great coin. I think you could optimize 79xx GPUs a lot like on Polaris etc. I had an 270x before and that was even profitable in the bear market mining Vertcoin on LyraRev2. I want a HD7950 or such to play with actually. I think it's still profitable on Verthash..

Like mentioned above, it's a bit of history in the crypto space!

I still mine VTC on a Sapphire R9 280x (and 285). It's about 2000 sats a day per GPU.

I'm interesting how many Vertcoin do you mine per day per GPU? I'm mining Vertcoin with RX550/560 (they are mining like ~1 VTC/day) but I want to compare with older better GPUs Smiley
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Rx 470 4Gb On Raven on: February 19, 2021, 07:03:42 AM
Just run 1100 MHz on core and 2000 Mhz on memory and you'll fine. Undervolt some like 850 mV maybe.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Nicehash calcuator is not accurate. on: February 16, 2021, 10:46:31 PM
P104-100s are 4GB.  They can be BIOS updated to 8GB, but I read through the whole proceedure and tried it on one, but it just wasn't working.  So I left the GPUs at 4GB.

So you're telling me that even though the P104's are good, they will never mine at their potential if they aren't BIOS updated to 8GB?  They will be essentially crippled and limited to lesser algorithms unless updated to 8GB ?

You answered your own question. Ethereum need more than 4 GB VRAM, not possible to mine with 4 GB cards nowadays. Well zombie mode exists but it's not worth the hassle. Better off if you can unlock all VRAM on the cards.
