We are preparing the next version right now. Should be ready *very* soon...

Cool! Release! Release! C'mon!

Crypto currency enthusiast and miner since 2015. Mined approx 200 ETH during 2016 and 2017 and sold it at approximately $US40 each. Then I watched it reach $1000+ each. If anyone bothers to read this stuff pay attention to this: HODL HODL HODL HODL HODL HODL

I started mining with 1 AMD 7950 and 1 R9-280X. Then I gradually built my AMD operation into 12 R9-290s. Awesome ETH hash but ridiculous power consumption and heat. Over the last year I defected to the Nvidia team. I now use GTX 1070s. They were expensive to buy (probably a bargain now) but awesome hash rate vs. power consumption. blah blah blah blah

As far as ZEC mining on Windows is concerned, the current developmental version of excavator is much faster than Optiminer and only 3% slower than Claymore's on RX 480. I have a few more tricks in my bag. We will see.

Where does EWBF fit into this equation? When I mine equihash on my Nvidia (1070s and 1060s) rig using EWBF - I get the same hash-rate as an AMD R9 390 rig but using HALF the power in watts.

Reducing power consumption is definitely one of my goals.
The next alpha release may not be optimal in terms of power consumption, but I will make the necessary adjustments in subsequent versions.

Have someone noticed gradual profitability/payrate decrease last week? On my GTX 1070 rate fell from ~0.0022 to 0.0015 BTC/day for now, in $ it fell respectively, though I still do ~440H/s with excavator. Is this problem global?

New version of excavator is very very near, be prepared.

No more old way of giving commands over command line; get ready for true commanding over API and out of the box dual/trippe/etc mining, OpenCL support and new algorithms. We also prepared a way to run the miner standalone by writing a big "config/commanding" file that is very powerful when it comes to commanding miner as it supports everything API has. However, it will still be just an alpha version.

I'm testing the new version of excavator on R9 Nano, and it is actually *faster* than Claymore's by 3% or so.
Good stuff.

Maybe there will be a LINUX binary at last...

Just guessing, but this sounds like it will be the centerpiece of NiceHash Miner 2.0...  Great sounding stuff!  I anxiously await my chance to give the alpha a try!

I was just assigned to a Linux port a few days ago.
I'm planning to prepare binaries for Ubuntu first.

ill check it out once i got some spare time in the next couple days, im mostly amd currently and not mining due to heat, but a short testrun doesnt harm Tongue
also the api seems nice, though i would love to use http calls as well as plain sockets (i assume its plain sockets as before with nheqminer and because of the \n)

Something like this should work:

Code:
@echo off
setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 1
setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
excavator -c command_file_example.json

HTTP makes sense... I will discuss this with djeZo.

Tried on my 270X and 280X.
Claymore:
270X - 200H/s
280X - 330H/s
excavator:
270X - 125H/s
280X - 225H/s

Excavator running with 2 threads on each GPU. With 1 thread speed less than pointed.

Those cards are all GCN1-based and I didn't prepare binary kernels for them for this version.
We will eventually get there. No worries.
