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.


Sorry for asking , whats the dev fee on this beta version ?

Thanks!
But if secure boot enabled driver wouldn't be installed, right? Only disabling SB can help?
Without your driver straps can't be applied?
P.S. Why 14th version? There is no 13th...

Secure boot is not related to the driver. Miner will set "Test Mode" in Windows to use unsigned driver.
I don't like "13" number so I skipped it Smiley

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"

This magic with straps took me a lot of time and efforts
If you spend so much time, how is the fastest way to found the best  strap/mem clock?

Is there way to found max mem clock without restarting whole miner? As I remember, when I overclock memory, hashrate go up only after restartminer... so restart miner every time is slow... maybe you found beter way for fast applyong new memclock and see new hashrate without restarting miner?

Oh, you are correct, I completely forgot how it must work.

I spent much time in attempts to implement this trick, not in overclocking. Anyway, use WattMan or AfterBurner for overclocking. Put hdmi dummy plug into card and it will apply new clocks immediately. Or set new clock and disable GPU in the miner ("0" key for first GPU, "1" for second GPU, etc) and wait 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? So for new memclock auto_dcri routines is needless

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.

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

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.
