HW Errors concern me.

Won't the hw errors cause the gpu to degrade over time?

Yeah, I'm looking into that as well.

No, it just means you're pushing it a bit to hard.  It's heat that will cause the GPU (any semiconductor) to degrade over time.
To reduce HW errors, try dropping worksize (or start at xi1024).

Took a rig from 4.04 w/ 16.40 to 4.11 w/ 16.60, no speed difference when it comes to claymore (29.5 hynix and 30+ samsung on rx470 4g).

Will test gg next.


I got a small boost (<1%) with sgminer going from 4.8/16.40 to 4.10.5/16.6.  I haven't heard anyone getting a speed boost going to 4.11, so I'm sticking with 4.10.

It seems that GG's Ethask kernel is more susceptible to hardware errors, though.
I am trying to figure out how to reduce the work load on the GPU without sacrificing the performance.

This is a very interesting project! But what does S/s mean? How to convert to H/s?

I actually haven't done anything about power consumption yet.
No worries, I will get to that in no time.

No worries, but you're really doing awesome work! Got a rig on GG with Monero and it happilly hums away, never crashes and does about 560W. I'll wait a bit until you do some power optimization for ETH though ^^

At any rate, I will have to rethink the financial aspects of open-source miner development.
Sadly, I was making much more money when I was developing private kernels just for myself.

Well, you should add optional devfee to your miner( on by default), I'm sure a good percentage of miners would pay.

Yeah, somebody posted a configuration file for sgminer for dev fees in this thread a while back. Let me take that up now...

you can also consider creating your mining pool and we will support you with hashrate


This could be a matter of tweaking, but the new GG ASM kernels reported similar performance locally as Claymore, but at the pool the performance was not as good. Higher rate of stale shares as well. (I also realize are other factors that could have lead to this). I'm talking in terms of 24 hr averages. Lower power consumption than Claymore though, which is nice.

This was on pre4 with the initial ASM stuff dropped in on windows 10. I will test out the pre5 release this week sometime.

i also noticed LOTS of HW errors on linux

Misinformation. There are approximately 1.88 sols (solutions) per hash. It's Equihash specific, i.e. Zcash, ZClassic, et al.

Edit: The pools are all reporting sols/sec, regardless of whether they say "hash rate".

Why do you set the worksize for your asm bins at 192l4 for windows and 192l8 for linux?

The worksize is the same. It's 192. l[4|8] signifies the size of "long" of the host, but I don't think it is necessary. The legacy sgminer codes need quite a bit of cleaning...

I just uploaded a new pre-release:

https://github.com/zawawawa/gatelessgate/releases/tag/v0.1.3-pre6

I managed to add another 1Mh/s to Ethereum minining with GCN3 devices, including Fury, Fury X, Nano, and RX 470/480. I believe power consumption is slightly reduced, too. Please let me know if that is actually the case.

Having said that, I also had to add a voluntary 1% developer's fee for a number of reasons. I am not going to get into boring details here, but it suffices to say that I love open-source development and I would like to make it work. I trust your good conscience.

I started GG pre6 on win7 before running to work. I could'nt play much with the settings but here what I saw in 10 min:
- Had to drop xI to 1024 because the default 4608 was crashing my cards, had no time to try something else.
- got the same hashrate than pre4 (but no optimised xI)
- fan speed was lower, wich could indicate less consumption, but the test was not long enough to be accurate.
- Once I arrived to work, the rig seems down.

Edit: I finally connected to the rig and it was working fine after 8 hours.

How Your donation works?,

Since im mining Etc, How it ill mine to your Eth wallet?
It ill generate 2 dags?

Could you explain better, and add more of your coin address (like exp, etc, eth, ..) so we could mine the right coin to help you

It mines 99 shares for you then mines 1 share for the dev, shouldn't regenerate the dag from what I have seen.

This is pretty much it. I already set up developer's fees for ETH, ZEC, and FTC.

The default settings for ETH should work with EXP and ETC.

Claymore made a choise in his miner and fee can be disabled via -nofee 1 option. Can you make in gg miner this choise too?

Removing dev fee from miner is easy but could cause zawawa to stop developing open source. So I will not go through steps to remove it.
