Ethereum:

The r9 390 should be able to do 36mhash. When undervolted the card use 260watt...

I think Wolf's private ASM kernel is the best one for Hawaii.  I don't see much point in trying to optimize for the older cards.  Even though I have Pitcairn, Hawaii, Tonga, Tahiti & Polaris cards, I'm only working on a eth miner for Tonga & Polaris on Linux.


I have an EVEN BETTER one for Tonga/Polaris - it's epic cause I have so much more to work with.

It seems like I was finally able to enable the GDS on Windows!
Let me see if I can actually use it...

Can you share optimized kernels for Pitcairn and Tahiti?

It has been so much fun developing GG with you guys (and gals) and I am immensely grateful.
However, it would be practically impossible to keep up with Claymore when s/he is presumably making $50000+/month
and I'm totally broke. I did everything I could do, but, sadly, the community made a collective choice, and I had to
make decisions accordingly. I still continue development, though. It is just that I have different priorities now.

Shame mate, as I said before, I left the fees on. But I guess when you make the choice to let people remove the fees, what you get is a lot of greed. Probably why claymore made his/her miner closed source.

Oh well, I'm still using GG on my monero rig so you should still get a few $ your way Wink

Thanks a lot! I really appreciate it. I have been working on excavator, NiceHash's new miner, for a few weeks now, and I am growingly dissatisfied with sgminer's aging code base. I have even more ideas for mining software, but I have so little time...

Lol, I'm no dev, but with a full time job, commute, one kid and a house to take care of, I have a huge lack of time to do the simplest things so I know the struggle  Cheesy

Pitcairn and Tahiti are GCN 1 - and have few really nice features to take advantage of. That's not to say assembly can't be faster - but it's likely to be less impressive than the mods for later cards like GCN 3.

Hawaii (GCN1.1 aka Sea Islands) is still better than Tahiti/Pitcairn since it has the flat instructions and the DS B128 instructions, but I think it is a smart decision just to optimize for Tonga/Polaris since they are architecturally very similar.

Guys and gals, it's official: I figured out how to enable the GDS on Windows.
This means that excavator will be much faster than the current version of GG on Windows.
There is so much more to explore as I can access the GPU at the lowest level without restrictions now.
Good stuff.

Excavator is for NVIDIA CUDA, isn't it?
What is for AMD GPU's? Will updates for GG for increase speed on AMD GPU's, f.e. for ZEC?

He is talking about "excavator by NiceHash - multi-algorithm advanced NVIDIA CUDA miner [1.1.4a]".
Or maybe he developing AMD version of excavator?

Oh, he goes to make update for AMD cards!
Hmm... Very interesting.
ccminer is GPL'ed, no?
The source code should be available.

By the way, I was finally able to get the GDS working on Windows on the AMD land.
It has been so long playing catch up with Claymore's and Optiminer...

I am developing a new OpenCL component for excavator.
The next version of excavator will be OpenCL-compatible.

GG is suspended for now, refer to nicehash excavator

Windows based miners are unacceptable.
So no way with excavator.
Really a bad news about GG.
Hope it'll change in future.

Excavator will support Linux very soon, so I'd say you just need to wait. for a week or two.
