The wait is over, folks! Here comes the new version:

excavator v1.2.0a
https://github.com/nicehash/excavator/releases/tag/v1.2.0a

New features include:

  • changed commanding interface to JSON based messages over startup file or API
  • CUDA: added decred
  • added OpenCL support
  • OpenCL: added pascal
  • OpenCL: added equihash

Please read the documentations very carefully, especially if you are using AMD cards.

We would love to hear your feedback to make excavator the best miner ever. Enjoy!

Just to confirm there were no improvements to the mining speeds for 10xx series Nvidia cards?

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.
Thanks, we will wait...

I understand that you are aiming for best efficiency , but why not release a "full throttle" version that matches EWBF, for people that do not care about electricity costs?

we are nothing but a smart contracts on a cosmic blockchain

i don't think that would work out well... i run my cards for efficiency with EWBF version and still do better than the current excavator so making a full throttle version that is suppose to compete for a version that runs more efficiently would be counter productive... imho.  I'd rather wait for a version that is competitive against EWBF.

I have been discussing optimizations with djeZo and we agreed we implement popular algorithms first, such as Ethash, before further optimizations. This makes sense if you are using excavator in conjunction with NiceHash Miner. I am pretty sure he would be able to catch up with his competition once he sets his mind to it.

Yes. For NVIDIA use this page: https://github.com/nicehash/excavator/tree/master/nvidia

For AMD use this page: https://github.com/nicehash/excavator/tree/master/amd

You cant, i highly doubt he can do it over longer period.



Also nicehash, those numbers are awesome? Have you made some iprovements to the equihash algo?

Nop, that's it. Just optimized OC params, nothing more.

 Those numbers look like 1080 numbers - that's almost IDENTICAL to what I see on my Gigabyte 1080 at +150 core, stock memory, and 70% power limit with EBWF on Win7.
 (489/141/3.48 when I just looked at it but it does bounce around a bit).

 I've not seen any of my 1070s manage more than about 450 sol/s even with power limit and overclock BOTH set quite high and the cards running over 80C temps.




I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!

Almost any 1070 can go over 465 sols, most of them can do 480. But not efficient. Thats why i measure the cards at 120W.  Also using stock memory on a memory intensive algo is just throwing money away.

When do you optimize the excavator by 6-8%?
