until memory clock will go idle (in a few seconds), then enable GPU again in the miner, new clock will be applied after that.
It will be the same as restart miner? I remember that at startup miner try ti find best dcri value, so trick with enabling/disabling GPU with new memclock may be not best way, because optimal DCRI for this card with new memclock may change?
Or optimal DCRI may change only if CORE clock have changed?

It depends... Anyway you can use "+" and "-" keys to change dcri to see if they are good for new clock. Or just set fixed -dcri, find highest stable clock and then find best -dcri value for this clock.

Please read Readme and FAQ in the first post of this thread before asking any questions, probably the answer is already there.

How much hashrates for ETH were you able to pull out of 580 8gb cards with these new straps?

Secure boot didn't allow to load unsigned drivers with UEFI bios.
I tried to run miner with admin rights but I got error:
In log:
23:39:57:796        4e14        Driver is not installed! Trying to install it...
23:39:57:854        4e14        Failed, you must run miner with admin rights.
On screen system error message appears before "Failed..."
"Value protected by secure boot policy and can't be changed"

Oh, you are correct, I completely forgot how it must work.
So, without disabling secure boot no chances to run with straps, right? It's not good...

v14.0 Beta:

- Windows only: added ability to apply optimized memory timings (straps) on-the-fly, without flashing VBIOS, up to 20% speedup compared to stock BIOS. Currently only Polaris cards are supported, other cards will be added later.
   Drivers 18.x or newer are required. Best straps for Ethereum are included. Check "-strap" and "-driver" options for details.
- Windows only: added temperature/fan/clocks management for Radeon VII.
- a few minor bug fixes and improvements.



Any plans to implement this feature for linux version ? (as far as its possible)

Not huge numbers, something about 33MH on RX480 8G Samsung with stock BIOS and voltage.

Do you really need secure boot on your rigs?
I could sign the driver, then some people will use my miner as malware, as always, then some AV will mark it as virus, then the certificate would be revoked... No way.

I'm not going to do the this trick in Linux, sorry.

I didn't need SB on all my rigs. But on some of them I work and SB can't be disabled on them... That's why I ask...
You can make separate exe-utility for installing driver and sign them. Miner can use this tool for installing/uninstalling driver and even if miner will marked as virus, driver installed by separate tool with sign will not revoked!
Just think about it, please. I'm sure that it can solve many questions in future.

And another one question: you made memory straps by yourself? Or you take it from somewhere? Can you share this straps for us, so we just flash it on our bioses. Those who can't use driver?

P.S. Some time ago zawawa (he maked GGS miner) can apply memory straps in his miner without any drivers on the fly... So it's exist a way to do it so...

Claymore, I know I may be asking a lot here, but just in case it's not too much additional effort... The Radeon Pro Duo is technically Polaris. It's got Samsung Mem (16GB on each GPU); two WX7100s/RX 580s.
Was hoping your straps would work without having to try bios flashing the master and slave gpu bioses, but the miner instaquits it I run as admin with -strap 1. If I don't run as admin, miner runs fine, but with no straps. Believe it's related to errors reading the boot configuration data.
Driver is latest Pro Driver, 19.Q1.2. Have used the AMDMemTweak CLI from Eliovp, and it works, but would like to try the straps you are using in your exe. Others messing with AMD workstation gpus may get some good here too! Thanks!

Check the log file for details. Or create "config.txt" file with options and right-click EthDcrMiner64.exe and select "run as admin", it must work. Or start "cmd.exe" as admin and start miner from it to see what happens, miner cannot close without any messages.


Claymore, many thanks! it worked with the config.txt file, just not the start.bat file.

If I have already flashed the vbios of my 580 and 570 cards, do I need to restore the stock bios before attempting the custom -straps in the command line?

I think no. This util just replace your bios timings (original or flashed) with eliots.

Zawawa was using a driver - phymem.sys (https://github.com/zawawawa/GatelessGateSharp/tree/v1.3/phymem)

read a few posts back and you will find  out from where he took the straps and timmings .

 Mr. Claymore..Your Grace,

Your miner (v14.0) has magically increased my hashrate, lowered my temps, heat and noise on 3 rigs, a mix of Polaris and Pascal architecture...Significantly.

You are truly a gentleman, and a scholar. Thank you for all you do for the mining community.

With Respect,

-Courtesy F. Flush

Eliovp sold me his straps for my miner, I'm not going to disclose them, sorry.
Zawawa's app is very similar to Eliovp's amd memory tweak app, i.e. it just changes memory registers, it does not apply entire straps. As soon as you try to copy entire strap to these registers, you will get BSOD.
Except my miner, currently there is no software (at least public) that can apply entire straps on the fly.

If I have already flashed the vbios of my 580 and 570 cards, do I need to restore the stock bios before attempting the custom -straps in the command line?

You can use your current bios.

it seems -tt won't work on 19.4.3?

You are correct, AMD added another API update to manage fan. Again...

I uploaded a small update to fix issue with fan in latest AMD drivers. I did not change the version number.
Please redownload v14.0 and check the log file, it must contain "b707" at the beginning which means latest build number.

Please, how to uninstall your driver and switch back windows from test to normal mode?

And about "paid straps from Eliovp" - I think everyone can examine them with Eliovp's tweak utility while your miner is running. Or are there some hidden gems?

1. Use "-driver uninstall" option with admin rights and reboot. Check Readme for details.
2. Registers contain only part of original strap, some values are modified.
