Yeah i also cannot get 440 at 60% TDP. Because 60% TDP statement does not make sense, what does it mean 50W? 100W? 150W? For MSI cards 60% TDP can be 150W, for EVGA (not FTW) cards the 60% TDP is about 110W.

Make sure you are using at least 2 threads. If only 1, then your GPU is not 100% loaded. 1 thread solution is good if you plan to do other stuff with your card. Imagine it as being an intensity switch.

We reached 440 with 115W TDP limited card that has OC set to 2120 core and 4700 mem. With next version, it is about 445 with these same settings.

Another example is 126W TDP limited card, OCed to 2110 core and 4400 mem (micron with BIOS patch) reaching 440 sol.

You can view how far is your card OCed when you launch excavator with overclocking set.

yeah i'm running it with -ca -ca , three thread result in a crash

how can you consume only 115 watt with core 2120? it's impossible to set the gpu at 2120 core with 60% tdp, without having a crash

what you have set on the core? the only thing may be the mem, your is at +900 mine only 600

Due to limited TDP, core is actually at around ~1820. Watt measurement is sw - from excavator or nvidia-smi, not HW one, so HW one is a bit higher.

I believe they mean the core settings without the TDP limitation. Once limited by TDP it will be downclocked for sure. This would mean roughly +220 OC for the non OC cards?

ah well without tdp limitation i can reach 440 i think with that crazy mem, but with 60% it's simply not feasible

actually my core is reaching 2000 with 60%...nevermind it's 1840 i confused with another algo

We got 1080 Ti in our labs and are now adding support in excavator and will be releasing new alpha version soon.

Limited to 150 W (60% TDP), the efficiency is much better (are there more efficient cards out there?):

It is an interesting thing we are noticing with these cards. Due to so big memory bandwidth, it is completely irrelevant to overclock memory if you run lower TDP - it does not help, instead, it can actually make less speed. We also noticed that downclocking memory can help slightly and giving some 10-20 sols more.  Shocked

This is probably efficiency world record for mining equihash (4.2 Sol per Watt).

Here we downclocked memory -400. Notice memory controller load - it is 71% which is below 80%. 80% is where memory starts to be major factor for equihash slowdown.

Yes, temps are not so high if you set low TDP, and not so loud. But with 100% TDP... things really get hot. All algos actually, by stock clocks, go over 100% TDP. Other cards reach more than 100% TDP with overclocking. This card gets quickly power throttled or thermal throttled.

OK, here it is, new version as promised: http://nicehash.com/tools/excavator_v1.1.3a_Win64.zip

Changes:

Quote
v1.1.3a
- slight equihash speed improvement with same TDP
- added support for GTX 1080 Ti
- added option '-od' to set custom overclock delay
- bug fixes and improvements

Regarding overclocking:

Quote
If you overclock, we suggest you to set '-or' to reset clocks after miner quits. This may prevent driver crashes or freezes due to high clocks. With parameter '-od' you can adjust overclock delay and apply new clocks when mining is already happening. This can also prevent crashes or freezes due to high clocks.

For all, that Wattage report isn't working correctly, run under debug mode ('-d 1' or '-f 1') and paste log here. We would like to get to know whether the issue is because of pcibusid string or something else.

Could you try and upgrade drivers to 378.78 ?

We have various cards and all show wattage correctly. Also, the reading fails at function nvmlDeviceGetPowerUsage, for which there is no reason to fail if supplied with proper device handle. And since nvidia-smi does show you a value, your card does support power readings.

EDIT: alternatively, you can put your own nvml.dll into excavator folder (copy it out of program files, nvidia).

yeah new driver fixed the reading

also tested old driver DLL file (on 2nd rig) and now reading are fine too, maybe in next miner version use the driver system DLL?

also speed now match ewbf miner... if you deduct 2% from his fee
