Hi all,

I just joined the NiceHash team and was put in charge of the new AMD/OpenCL support for excavator. I think the miner will be a meaningful contribution to the community with its top-notch performance and the clean, modular code base, and I would like to make the development process as collaborative as possible so that it will grow into a feature-rich, user-friendly miner. If you have any feedback and/or requests, please let me know. I look forward to working with you all.

Best,
zawawa

last time i checked the api was pretty "light"

not top priority but worthy of being taken onto some list Wink

Excavator has the best API any mining software has ever displayed so far. But from version 1.2.0 on, which isn't publicly available (yet).

cant wait Smiley im almost amd only now so i might have to wait for opencl being included to fully play with it, haha

I don't see the need for bragging rights quite yet. I cannot find excavator to be anything but less profitable than EWBF's miner. I am an nVidia miner, sets of 970's and 1070's and excavator just does not compete at the moment.

yup ...

especially when a new miner is under development now also ...

for zcash mining, i find EQM and ZECminer to give me much better hash rates on a gtx 1080..strange.

Excavator's API has a pretty interesting minimalist design philosophy, which is refreshingly different from sgminer etc.
I would imagine its merits would become clearer as we add more features and algorithms and develop helper applications that take advantage of it.
As for raw performance, I will do everything I can to make it a top-notch OpenCL miner.
Now that I have more time and resources, I can try things that were previously impossible for me, and I am really excited about that.

so is excavator a closed source product using opensource algos? ...

yet no opensourced gpl licence adherence? ...

and you are 'happy' to work on a system that breaks the licensing agreements? ... if of course that is the case - which it seems likely it is ... though i could be completely wrong about this - i have yet to see - thats all ...

im interested to know how this free windows based miner stands up to that test - especially since nicehash can buy almost any dev they please in the current btc market ...

who owns nicehash btw? ... as much as the nicehash service is pretty awesome service by most standards - there is little information about where when and how it was established and who owns it ... i use it - and so does our company - as it IS a good system that has been created here ... but outstanding questions have yet to be answered here as those ive raised - and im more curious than i am anything else ...

be that as it may - congrats on the 'job' anyway mate ... nicehash certainly know how to pull in the good devs ...

I really don't know what to say about the second question, but I can answer the first question in clear terms:
 
There would be NO GPL VIOLATIONS.

I wouldn't work for this project otherwise as I have been a GPL guy most of my life.
I will only use MIT-licensed codes and my own codes for this project.
I won't be using other people's codes that were licensed under the GPL.
MIT-licensed codes can be lawfully used in closed-source projects, and I can do pretty much anything with my own codes.
I hope this clarifies things for you.

that is great to hear ...

and also great to see that a developer of your calibre would appreciate where im coming from with this ...

it is not an attack of any sort ... just merely a disappointment of a system that i ( and many many others ) have used for a long time now - if it had been any form of violation of licensing - such as what sp does on a daily basis and makes money from ... no matter how small amount he says he makes ...

nicehash itself - regardless of fees - is a system setup so well that it has outgrown many others in a short space of time ... so to see that all is above board is a gratifying thing ...

though there is no means to measure this currently - it is taken and based on the words of reliable people like yourself ...

it clarifies much for me mate - tanx ...

Excavator does not and will never violate GPL licenses when it comes to including work/optimisations of other dev's mining code. Currently, it has equihash and pascal algorithms, both developed and based entirely on MIT licenses of various people. zawawa is putting in his own pascal implementation and his own equihash implementation (based on silentarmys MIT license). We are also talking with several devs to include other popular algorithms such as decred, lyra2rev2, lbry and we are aware that if we go down that road, authors of these codes need to make special non-GPL code for us and that costs - and we are fully prepared to pay for that.

im fully aware of that ... and as such - i needed confirmation - which you have readily given and not withheld ...

this is rare in this day and age of crypto - so one can expect such questions to arise from time to time ...

tanx for your openness and honesty with the response ...

im still wondering ( this is merely a to amuse my curiosity more than anything at all ) who is the actual owner of nicehash and its servers / segments? ... its a comprehensive and complex system that has been created - and a financially successful one at that - even though the infrastructure does cost ... so i ask this question to satisfy my curiosity as to whether this is a single person - single entity - or a conglomeration of people who actually own and continue to grow this behemoth os a mining system ...

kudos to whoever and whatever has set this up ...

I haven't played around with the settings as much as some of you, but my best speed (and OC) is around 648 S/s.  Power lim at 120%, +140 core, +500 mem.  Temp gets as high as 85c.  I think efficiency was somewhere around 2.x - Core was at around 1980 MHz while mem is 5508 MHz.  Power draw was around 275W I think.  Fan was at around 80%

I found the best efficiency I could do was just leave it at base clock (1480/5005).  Dialed the power lim it 63% and leave the core and mem clock at +0.  This leaves me with 540 S/s at 3.4 efficiency, 72c (lower fan speed - 42%) and power draw of 157W.

For GTX 1080 Ti, best setting is: +240 core, -300 mem, 60% TDP. You get 630 sol/s (if you keep temps low) at 150 W.

This works for me using EWBF's miner, but not yours.  For whatever reason it crashes if I go beyond +140 on the core.

I didn't think it mattered because the 60% power limit would keep the core at around 1500 MHz anyways, but apparently it does.  Not sure how that works.

With EWBF's miner, it hashes about the same as yours (530-540 S/s) with +140 (1500 MHz limited by power at 60%).  But at +240, yours crashes but EWBF's will mine at 610-630 S/s even though the core still only get as high as around 1500 MHz limited by power at 60%.

So not sure why it performs better at +240 vs +140 even though the actual clock speed is the same due to power limits.  Also don't know why excavator crashes over +140 but not EWBF.

Put something in my tip jar if I made your day. Smiley

Hi, miners.

We are presenting excavator - multi-algorithm advanced CUDA miner. Miner is close-sourced, but open to ANY pool and does NOT contain any fees. excavator is brought to you by NiceHash.

Supported algorithms:

equihash
pascal
sha256t

Some speed results:

equihash:
optimized GTX 1080 at 60% TDP = 500 Sol/s
optimized GTX 1070 at 60% TDP = 440 Sol/s

pascal:
optimized GTX 1080 at 60% TDP = 1240 MH/s
optimized GTX 1070 at 60% TDP = 970 MH/s

The main goal of excavator is to reach the best possible ratio between performance and energy consumption, thus providing the highest overall profits.

Download windows binary

Use
Code:
excavator.exe -h
for all available options.


Example: Mining with NVIDIA GPU on NiceHash EU location using Pascal algorithm:

Code:
excavator.exe -a pascal -s pascal.eu.nicehash.com:3358 -u [YOUR-BTC-ADDR].[YOUR-WORKER-NAME] -ca

Available locations are eu, usa, jp, hk.


Thank you for your using our service and keep on hashing! Wink

Best regards,
NiceHash team


How to get 440 sol on 60% TDP on 1070?
Im getting 435 sol on 80% on 1070 Palit.

Every card brand has different TDP meaning, so for palit 1070 80% TDP is let say 130w, and for MSI gaming 80% TDP is 180w...

so TDP can not be compared as that

Not really. Nicehash hired someone to keep up development of excavator for AMD cards but appears to have given up on nVidia clients. EWBF's is the only one publicly available that is our best miner on equihash. I have no idea if Nicehash has any intentions to develop a competing variant for nVidia cards.

Yeah... you need to overclock your 1080 on excavator to get the same on stock settings on ewbf..  Roll Eyes

they still need to do more work on excavator.

i have three 1070, one 1060  and doing 1600 Sol/s pulling 600 watts at the wall with ewbf all cards at stock settings.
with excavator i'm doing 1450 Sol/s pulling 560 watts at the wall with stock settings.

ya i figured out whats happening, for whatever reason excavator drops my GTX 1080 memory down by 400 hz
I have to overclock my memory by 800 mhz (5800), so that when excavator launches, it drops it down to 5400, which is still 'good', and i get 500 sols then on my gtx 1080
but very unstable. EWBF figured out how to not have this happen obviously as with stock settings (not overclocked memory) I'm getting 500+ sols with his miner

Here is a photo showing the ridiculous memory overlclock I need to make nice hash miner (excavator) keep up with ewbf. notice that even with +800 and a clock of 5800, when excavator launches, it drops to 5350  Huh

EDIT: This seems to happen (the memory drop) on other algorithms too using nicehash miner, including LYRA etc, so seems like im not mining to max on any coin. Hopefully nicehash miner gets updated with a fix for nvidia
