I only started throwing massive power at a pool just now. Will check my returns in 24h.

It's a bit over 24h. I'm curious to hear about the results.

I highlighted earnings in the 24h interval between approx. 11PM yesterday and 11 PM today. This is with 3 MHash/s
I have more than 8 million of these coins now (up from just above 5 mio). Seems like the rate is a bit above my expectations and I will keep mining them for a bit. I've always wanted to own more than 10 million of anything (brain cells, gut bacteria, ... and now COINS!)



next release will happen this weekend. Will have to type up a new README file, change some kernel names, etc...

0,09 BTC/day, nice!
Are you aiming for 10 million euros too? Cheesy

I said ANYTHING right? ;-)  Not sure for which rate I will be able to exchange theses MRC and if that rate will be going up or down in the next few days/weeks.

Someone published a GUI for cudaminer called CUDA Manager. It's probably meant for the 2013-12-18 version at the moment. You guys should try it.

OMG! Not only do you provide an awesome way to mine on nvidia, you show me CUDA Manager; the answer to my (and assuredly others) failover issues.

Is this next release a big one? I saw there was talk about a performance boost a few posts back and script-jane stuffs. What can we expect this weekend?

it's mostly the scrypt-jane support and the new nVidia-submitted kernels which add a speed boost to scrypt minig.

-i 0 -m 1 -l Z15x24

That actually crashes my display drivers with no overclock Sad


The -m 1 flag tells cudaminer to allocate all of its GPU memory in one big chunk. Whether this works depends a lot on your particular computer's main (CPU) memory size because of some peculiarities of the WDDM driver model for graphics.

You can also leave away the -m 1 and try again.

The -m 1 flag makes a large difference in hashing for me.  Just for reference I'm using Windows 8 64-bit with 32GB ram.

Wow Cuda manager is nice Smiley
I assume its using the 12/18 build I'm getting +15 khash on litecoin mining over what I was getting with the 12/18 build with the exact same config. -C for kepler doesnt work in 12/18 right?

I'm having some difficulty pulling off improved numbers after building from the repository.  I pulled the repository about 6 hours ago so I'm pretty sure I have the newest code to build from.

For reference, I run an i5-3570K @ 4.2GHz and a GTX 680 (2GB).

-----

With the 12-18 build I get around 350 khash/s, and my command line is: cudaminer -r 10 -R 30 -T 30 -d 0 -H 1 -i 0 -C 2 -l K8x32

A quick sample of the output I receive with this config...

GPU monitoring during both of these sessions can be found here:  Images  -- what's odd is the spikiness of the GPU when running the beta build.

Any thoughts on options I should try?  I've attempted to force the texture cache off (-C 0) with no improvement.  I've tweaked my launch configuration (-l auto suggested K64x16, which seems odd but I went with it initially, no difference in output) without success.  I tried both omitting and providing -m 1 but there was no significant difference in performance either.

Yeah still crashes, i have been runing my 2 780TI in separate bat files with -d. Works well.

Quote from: cbuchner1
Question of the day: What to mine with my nVidia cards?

Yacoin -> this coin is falling (failing?)
MRC -> no luck with solo mining at all. Trying a pool now (mrc.easy-mining.net pool seems to be fixed at last).
VertCoin -> who is currently into this coin? if you are, why?
middlecoin -> the DOGE rush is over, right?

I think what would really be helpful is a profitability calculator for various scrypt-jane coins, taking one's hash rate at different N-factors into account.

Christian



may'be a late response , but have a try at http://hashbros.co.in.
here is their official thread : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=431140.0
i'm in no way associated with them.
Have just been using for a week now , and must say i'm very happy with it.
similar to middlecoin ,hashcows ,...
but with a very good website , transparent in every way.
and my profits are well above with what i had with middlecoin.

kind regards

Cbuchner1, any chance you'll be adding the necessary support to use Cudaminer on Betarigs: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=434464?

From that topic, post #120:

Does this work with cudaminer?

Normally it should -- Betarigs is just like another pool to the miner softwares. The only thing that could happen is that cudaminer does not behave as expected with the headers I'm sending him, but then I will just fix that. If you want to try to plug your cudaminer, we can make tests together.

For info, the cpuminer software (minerd) works.

Looks like cudaminer not working, getting JSON key 'data' not found.

Using string cudaminer -o http://eu.betarigs.com:3333 -u [assigned user name in website] -p x

The error is expected, and I'm seeing you in the logs.
What is not expected is that cudaminer is ignoring the redirect request I'm making him... So cudaminer not supported until I manage to talk to him.

Would be great to be able to use Cudaminer for this!

Have you tried with -C 0 and passing -m 1 in the second case? This would mimick the behavior of the 2013-12-18 version.

Also why not use the new Y kernel submitted by nVidia recently. Autotune it and you might find that it is faster.

Hi christian, just want to check what the return was like on mrc? My yacoin seems to have picked up; getting me 10 blocks in the last 24 hours but at their price its $8

Ok I saw your earnings. Does the reward seem consistant now its been a few days? As I may have to switch

Hey Christian,

Any ETA on the new release? Tonight a new scrypt-jane coin launches, and i'd really like to mine with cudaminer Smiley
Talking GMT+1 time, and the coin is Ultracoin (a new one).

Anybody interested in UltraCoin ?
A new script-jane coin which should launch today.
Do I need to do any modification to mine it or cudaminer will detect itself the Nfactor (should be one though... )

Someone published a GUI for cudaminer called CUDA Manager. It's probably meant for the 2013-12-18 version at the moment. You guys should try it.

I entertained the idea of learning how to change cudaMiner to have a fixed console header where it would store some figures similarly to cgminer, without scrolling, but I quickly gave up on the idea as I have very little free time.

I'm loving the --time-limit feature!

Not your keys, not your coins!
