1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: NVIDIA is cutting the 3060's Hash Rate in Half & NEW Mining specific GPU's on: February 19, 2021, 05:53:59 PM
Yup, as shown in the past, mining is only a temporary spike. They need to take care of the core market.

Unfortunatelly Nvidia is (once again) trying to put out the fire with quick and bad solution. They were unprepared for the third time in the row with the current crypto hype and still they do not have a strategy, a proper solution to the issue. Now they are trying to sell old hardware to miners which is "specialized for mining" and at the same time disabling home users by bricking future gaming gpus which is essentially a kick in the ass for the much needed decentralized mining. This is very very bad solution and will not solve the issues addressed. Fist of all - if profitability will be good then miners will buy ANYTHING that is capable of mining (gaming/specialized) and will try to override the driver/bios obstacles that Nvidia puts in new products. And secondly - miner will ALWAYS buy best price/performance product and not some fancy-named "specialized" products.

that means about 370,000    3080.s.   were added in 7 weeks.  so 7.1 x that = 2.62 million gpus a year. Just for mining.

could that be correct?  

Due to the fact that every single computer-related community, even large sites like anandtech, tomshardware, etc. are talking about mining this means that every single 3xxx 68xx that is sold it is actually used for mining, let it be professional miners or gamers. Due to the hype and media cover, everybody knows about mining and everybody is mining. So yes, the vast majority of new hashrate is from 3xxx 68xx ... ASIC can't just come ouf of the blue ...

It looks like Nvidia is trying desperate measures to fight GPU shortages. What do you thing about this?

Support for Skunk algorithm

NiceHash is introducing the immediate availability for buying and selling hashing power with Skunk algorithm. The Signatum coin can be mined by buying the Skunk algorithm hashing power. You can place orders and point them to any of your preferred Signatum pools.

Take a look here for more information: https://new.nicehash.com/news/204

Anyone else noticed the bug in ethminer generating DAG files? When trying to generate DAG file for any block larger than 3870000, it will only produce a 0-size file.

Try this:

Code:
ethminer.exe -D 3870000

It will run just of a few seconds, generate 0-bytes file "full-R23-3868abc5dcee2334" and exit.

This has now been fixed by Ethereum core devs. @Genoil or whoever is still maintaining various ethminer forks: make sure to include this patch, or else ethminers will simply "die" after block block 3870000.

Noob here... want to give dash a try and tried to get it running  Undecided

So first of all, i didnt understand from nicehash if dash=darkcoin=x11=x11gost?? I just took an other pool to get started, but it doesn't work.

Dash is X11 algorithm which is now an ASIC-only algo. x11gost is a different algorithm (see here for more info: https://www.nicehash.com/index.jsp?p=news&id=134)


As per your GPU detecting issue - try adding this parameter:

Code:
--gpu-platform 1

sgminer-gm seems to be working fine with an old SA kernel both with RX 480 and with GTX 1060.
(Obviously, it's really slow and hardware monitoring is not available for the latter.)
Porting GG's kernel to sgminer-gm should not be that difficult if SA's kernel is already working.
Let's see if I can quickly hack up a new version...

Please, make yourself a favour and don't dig into sgminer. Even though it is a great multi-algorithm miner and also we at NiceHash support it for long time, it has too much legacy and is too bloated. It goes back to original minerd, through cgminer, into sgminer, with lots "ifs" inside. Modern algorithms and modern gpus need lightweight miners, and nhqminer is one of them, you're really welcome to try working on nheqminer (it can be easily extended with support for other algorithms, besides equihash).

There are serious issues with this miner on Win10 when mining on multiple AMD GPUs (more than 2) ... CPU is overloaded and shares not validated on the pool. Anyone has a solution for this?
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: ethminer-0.9.41-genoil-1.1 on: December 07, 2016, 06:49:59 AM
@Genoil, if I understand correctly I can not generate DAG file locally (saved on my drive) with 1.1.x version of ethminer? I noticed that if I use latest 1.0.x windows build, I can only generate DAGs up to block 3840000 (-D,--create-dag <number>) ... if I specify any larger block, ethminer crashes. Is this an issue with Ethereum generally, or an issue with ethminer?
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: SILENTARMY v4: Zcash miner, now with Nvidia support (Linux only) on: November 09, 2016, 12:52:31 PM
mrb, you still haven't pulled these two?

https://github.com/mbevand/silentarmy/pull/17
https://github.com/mbevand/silentarmy/pull/39

There are many miners, trying to use your miner on NiceHash, but are having issues because of these two issues (and on some others pools as well, because of missing client.reconnect method).

Anyway, if anyone of you would like to mine on NiceHash with silentarmy you can build from our fork https://github.com/nicehash/silentarmy where these two issues are already solved.

Thanks!

Really it is a shame, that there is no opensource miner for nvidia, only with devfee one, which makes 53-54 s/s on one 1070, and low cpu usage.

As far as I know there is no NVIDIA closed-source miner with devfee that makes 53-54 S/s (hopefully you are not referring to this scam https://github.com/zcminer-dev/zcminer).

So for now Tromp-based miners are the only one available for NVIDIA (for example, https://github.com/nicehash/nheqminer).

mrb, I also would love to support the request to pool

Code:
extranonce.subscribe #39
https://github.com/mbevand/silentarmy/pull/39


into the mainstream. Would it be possible to implement it?

Until @mbr doesn't pulls this you can build from our repository (just forked with patches for NiceHash extranonce.subscription):

Anyway, I pushed a nicehash-compatibilty update to tolerate stratum servers fixing 17 bytes of the nonce: https://github.com/mbevand/silentarmy/commit/0d371a9582159627b11941c14ca6cbc3da359cb1

Perhaps I will eventually permanently address the issue by allowing the last 12 bytes of the nonce to be non-zero...

Cool. I've also made a pull for extranonce.subscribe

https://github.com/mbevand/silentarmy/pull/39

btw: I also believe that you should pull this one https://github.com/mbevand/silentarmy/pull/17 per stratum specs

So, what's up with this bug under Linux:

Code:
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'config4cpp::ConfigurationException'
Aborted (core dumped)

I see several reports of this issue, but no solution?
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN]: cpuminer-opt v3.4.7, now on GIT on: October 17, 2016, 07:27:26 PM
joblo, you're probably already aware of the Tromp's Equihash solvers, which were released under open-source. Are you considering implementing them into your cpuminer-opt, thus adding support for equihash algortihm (for z.cash)?

That's a cuda miner, still looking for a CPU miner.

Not true. It has fastest to-date known public CPU implementation as well as CUDA implementation.

It is already added: https://www.nicehash.com/?p=orders&a=24

But beware! Things may change before official launch.
Any plans for supporting  Zcoin (XZC) ?

Zcoin is using equihash algorithm - the link I gave you is correct.


Just a small correction here.

Zcoin (XZC) uses Lyra2REv2, and this algorithm is supported already for a long time on NiceHash.

Do not mix Zcoin with Z.CASH - z.cash is a new coin, which will be using equihash algorithm and this algorithm has been just recently added to NiceHash.

Please, make sure to read wattage numbers at the Wall. ADL on new AMD cards is foobar, so the only number that you can count on is power meter at the wall. So, @tytanick, repeat your comparison with a watt meter at the wall and see if there are really these kind of differences between Linux/Windows.
