Here is the latest news with the OpenCL support of excavator:



The hardware/software configuration is as follows:

Stock Radeon RX 480
Windows 10 64-bit
AMD Crimson Software 16.9.2

With the same configuration, Claymore's runs at around 271 S/s.

I am not entirely sure when the most recent optimizations would be publicly available, but you guys will definitely see a vastly optimized version of excavator at some point in the future.

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

When we put in all of popular algorithms and get some good anti-reversing tehcniques in place so our ideas and hard work isn't stolen again. Until then, we better keep it a bit under, so we don't draw too much attention.

I can certainly understand and agree with that, nobody likes having their code stolen. Is there any kind of approximate time frame for when these newer optimizations might be available via NiceHash? Thanks!

Well, these numbers are also affected by other hardware components, too.
(My dev PC is quite old...)
I'm pretty sure excavator will reach 300 S/s on my old PC soon, though.

why they should stole your work if they already have the same speed? do you suspect that EWBF is stealing your work and therefore he was able to reach your speed in this way?

1.2.0a works great with nvidia cards.

But, I cant make it work with amd cards
[error] opencl | Failed to load phymem.

It comes with phymem.sys , I have to copy this file to any places? (Windows7)

Thank you.
PD: Yes, I have executed turn-driver-signature-enforcement-off.bat and reboot and run excavator as admin.
Driver: win7-64bit-radeon-software-crimson-relive-16.12.2-jan3

There is a bug in the current alpha version that prevents the driver from being loaded in some cases.
I fixed the bug already and am waiting for the next alpha version myself.

How to set up on 5 GTX1070?
Old start line:
excavator.exe -a equihash -s zcl.suprnova.cc:4042 -u User.node07:x -ca -ca -od 5 -or -os 0 %core_delta% %mem_delta% %tdp% -os 1 %core_delta% %mem_delta% %tdp% -os 2 %core_delta% %mem_delta% %tdp% -os 3 %core_delta% %mem_delta% %tdp% -os 4 %core_delta% %mem_delta% %tdp%

I'm probably stupid, but I can not translate it into json file config  Huh

I'm probably stupid, but I can not translate it into json file config  Huh

The cmd file I use for my machine that has 4 various NVIDIA cards is following:
Code:
[
{"time":1,"commands":[
{"id":1,"method":"algorithm.add","params":["equihash","equihash.eu.nicehash.com:3357","EDITEDOUT"]}

{"id":1,"method":"worker.reset","params":["4"]},
{"id":1,"method":"worker.reset","params":["5"]},
{"id":1,"method":"worker.reset","params":["6"]}
]},
{"time":15,"loop":15,"commands":[
  {"id":1,"method":"algorithm.print.speeds","params":[]}
]},
{"event":"on_quit","commands":[
{"id":1,"method":"device.set.tdp","params":["0","100"]},
{"id":1,"method":"device.set.core_delta","params":["0","0"]},
{"id":1,"method":"device.set.memory_delta","params":["0","0"]},
{"id":1,"method":"device.set.tdp","params":["1","100"]},
{"id":1,"method":"device.set.core_delta","params":["1","0"]},
{"id":1,"method":"device.set.memory_delta","params":["1","0"]},
{"id":1,"method":"device.set.tdp","params":["2","100"]},
{"id":1,"method":"device.set.core_delta","params":["2","0"]},
{"id":1,"method":"device.set.memory_delta","params":["2","0"]},
{"id":1,"method":"device.set.tdp","params":["3","100"]},
{"id":1,"method":"device.set.core_delta","params":["3","0"]},
{"id":1,"method":"device.set.memory_delta","params":["3","0"]}
]}
]

First, establish connection with remote pool - algorithm equihash.

Then I add workers so CUDA stuff is initialized (potential jump to P0 state can happen here).

Then waiting a bit for all these CUDA context are initialized and applying clocks and TDP.

After 10 seconds, I reset speed counter of all workers.

Then after 15 seconds and every 15 seconds print total speed to console.

And I also have on_quit even that resets applied clocks and TDPs back to default values.

Hope this helps you Smiley

By the way what does it mean ""id":2" ? In the documentation about this forgot to write...

The result is more than pathetic:
Code:

[18:22:27][0x00001e24][info] core | Algorithm 'equihash' total speed: 2.062495 kH/s

The previous version excavator gave 2,241 kH/s.

id is just there for marking JSON message, if you don't need that returned (such as when creating json messages) you just set to to any number you like.

Speed should not be any different. Are you sure you setup everything correctly? Running two workers per device?

You can check with HTTP WEB and see more details what is going on (is gpu utlization 100%?).

While excavator remains the worst of all. We are waiting for the programmers to play enough with parsing json and  take up the real deal  Wink

When do you optimize the excavator by 6-8%?
When we put in all of popular algorithms and get some good anti-reversing tehcniques in place so our ideas and hard work isn't stolen again. Until then, we better keep it a bit under, so we don't draw too much attention.

Your kernel is slow. You stole the idea from the silent army..
