Hi all!

New version released:

Code:
v4.2: 15 November 2018
    - Added statistics and metrics API in HTTP and TCP formats (--api flag)
    - Fixed --exitsick functionality

Only upgrade if you need API functionality or want to use --exitsick. If not, then please keep using v4.1.

Thanks!

Hello miners!

Just wanted to let you know, that with current minimal earnings from mining you may try to decrease your powertune in order to get better MHs per watt ratio.

For example, I decreased my powertune from "-8" to "-30". That lowered my hashrate by about 10%, but the power usage of GPUs decreased by about 25%.

PS: The "API functionality" in mkxminer is almost finished. I think I'll release a new version tomorrow or next week.

Thanks

Hi good miner but after a few hrs of mining my vega64 becomes dead ive tried lowering the intensity to 17 still becomes dead  any ideas on a config?  Huh Thanks

Hi!

Try different drivers. Or decrease powertune. This mining algorithm is heavy on GPU, so make sure the card is not overheating.
Changing config files for mkxminer will not help.

Thanks

Hey, great little miner!

Any chance it could be made to work with 7950's, 7970's and 280x?

Some of my aging farm it runs, but will not find a share.

Whats weird is: On a  couple of old 7790's the miner works fine and receives share rewards lol

Ok, anything to help would be great! mining Lyra2z of course Smiley

THX!

Hi!

Yes, it is possible to make it work on older cards. But the speed is much slower, so not sure if it is even worth it.

For example, compare speed of R9 390 and RX 480. 390 is almost two times slower.
While on other algorithms, for example on Lyra2rev2, it is only about 10% - 20% slower.
Older generations, like Tahiti (7950, R9 280X) would have similar performance to R9 390 (prorated to the number of cores), so I expect R9 280X to be around 1.2MHs now.

I believe you can find a more profitable algo to mine on these old cards.

Thanks

i'm getting a an error
Device not supported: "gfx900", only AMD GCN cards are supported.

it's a Radeon Vega56  Roll Eyes

Hi!

Is it on Windows or on Linux?

Thanks

additional details...

gfx900 is when HBCC is turned off   does not work when HBCC turned off
gfx901 is when HBCC is turned on.  it works with HBCC turned on

running 18.10.2 drivers now.

have you tried developing without the blockchain drivers?  the blockchain drivers are supported in the latest released drivers and they're more stable.

and have you tried developing with HBCC off.

HBCC are for the vega cards.  the 500 and 400 series card have a compute/graphic switch in AMD settings window.

Sorry, this is new for me. Will have to read about HBCC, etc.
I have Windows 10 x64 and Vega64. I believe this is the best setup.

As for drivers, I'm using blockchain drivers, because they are stable. I tried with different other drivers as well, but had some issues with 4+ GPUs in one rig.
I can test on latest drivers, probably next week.

Hi!

Sorry, I'm not quite sure what your quoted text is. Definitely not output from mkxminer or error message.
Please provide more info and I'll try to investigate.

"18.10" is "Ubuntu 18.10", I guess. Server or Desktop?
Which AMD driver?

Thanks

Dear miners!

I am locking this thread. Please use the new thread for Lyra2Z miner related questions: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5058058

If you are here because of Lyra2rev2 miner, then please think again: Lyra2rev2 ASICs now exist and it is very unprofitable to mine this algorithm with a GPU.
If you just need MONA/VTC/etc coins, then it makes more sense to mine other algorithm (say Lyra2Z, see link above) on a multipool with BTC payouts and then use BTC to buy MONA/VTC.

Thank you
WinMKX

mkxminer versions 1.0 - 3.1 were supporting only lyra2rev2 algorithm. But it is now dead for GPU miners, because ASICs completely destroyed lyra2rev2 profitability.
mkxminer version 4.0+ do not support lyra2rev2 anymore. Here is the old lyra2rev2 related thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2360168

Hello!

I just released a new version of mkxminer. Sorry, it took a little longer than I thought:

v4.1: 27 October 2018
    - Linux build + Windows build
    - About 5% speed increase

* Coming soon *
    - API support

Links in OP

Thanks

PS: I'm planning to create a separate thread for Lyra2z mkxminer, because the discussion above is mostly for Lyra2rev2 algo. But lyra2rev2 is now dead for GPUs (because of ASICs).

Note regarding mkxminer:

- Please use beta blockchain driver. Link: https://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/Radeon-Software-Crimson-ReLive-Edition-Beta-for-Blockchain-Compute-Release-Notes.aspx

I use it myself on RX580 and Vega. Running absolutely rock solid.

There are reports, that latest 18.x drivers don't work properly.

- Do not use lyra2rev2 anymore, it is not profitable. Lyra2Z is much better.

- New version will have higher mining speed and Linux support. ETA: This month (October).

- There will be no more Lyra2rev2 support (does not make any sense, because of ASICs).

PS: If you need any comments from me, please send PM. Unfortunately, I don't have time to constantly monitor this forum.

now there is finnaly teamred windows miner for lyra2z.  at least those guys do something and are releasing updates frequently.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5027811.0


Please compare mining speed of this miner with mkxminer v4 and reply.

My test on MSI RX580:
3.45Mhs on mkxminer 4.0b
3.37Mhs on teamred miner 0.3.2 (minus 3% their devfee) => effective 3.27Mhs
So my miner is 5% faster.

My test on FuryX:
3.61Mhs on mkxminer 4.0b
3.26Mhs on teamred miner 0.3.2 (minus 3% their devfee) => effective 3.16Mhs
So my miner is 14% faster.

Could not test on Vega, because redteam miner could not recognize my Vega64, so cannot publish my results unfortunately.

Very, very unstable with vegas

Best driver is a beta blockchain driver.

Have 7 x VEGA 64 myself, running rock solid.

Hello!

Lyra2rev2 ASICs are out: https://cryptomining-blog.com/10247-the-first-lyra2rev2-asic-miner-is-available-dayun-zig-z1/

And profitability of MONA/VTC is very low.

Please upgrade to mkxminer V4 with Lyra2Z support (links in OP) for a much better profit. Lyra2Z mining is now about 2-3 times more profitable than Lyra2rev2.

Thanks!
