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!

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..



I based it off Tromp's solver, which was under MIT. Some parts of the code (indices dup checking and sorting) is from SA (again MIT), besides that, I didn't even read SA kernel. We can't say the same about your endeavours eh? Sell this GPL closed source, sell that GPL closed source...

I was able to setup dual mining on my AMD cards using the claymore miner easy enough. Has anyone figured out dualmining on excavator on nvidia cards?

I'm running 2x 980ti cards

Well, we are pretty innocuous... I must admit that the current political show is quite entertaining,
but it's pretty scary if you really think about it.

Anyway, I still need to figure out why my RX 470 is not behaving well. My RX 480 is running at 292 S/s, though.

All you need to do is to add two algos and assign workers to each, I think.

How to set something like "--gpu-platform 1" in GG?

Unlike GG, OpenCL platforms are transparent with zero-based device ID's in excavator.
For example, if there are two devices on Platform 0, the device ID of the first device on Platform 1 is 2.

    Platform 0: Device 0, Device 1
    Platform 1: Device 2

Makes sense?

Is it ok to replace the excavator version of the nicehash miner with this version?

The best is to call device.list and see which device_id it is (https://github.com/nicehash/excavator/tree/master/api#device-list).

Yes, but NHM cannot work with this new version, it is not supported yet.

any benchmarks for pascal cards over sia ?
it is better than other software ?

curently i`m doing 1500mh/s with gtx 1070 g1 gaming tdp 60% core+100 with ccmier or klaus fork , they do the same .

What does your json file look like? I cant get it to mine at all...

i haven`t mined with excavator , but with ccminer is

ccminer-x64 -a sia -o stratum+tcp://us-west.siamining.com:3333 -u xxx -p xxx -i 28

you can use the help tab of any mining pool to help you set up a miner Wink

Power limits and speeds are visible from the picture (using default launch params, you may tune them to go higher, had no time to do that myself - yet):

is there  going to be an implementation to incorporate dual mining profitability of both coins instead of just looking at the main coin?
for example
I have a system that does:
Equi @2.6 ksol/s  @0.01088 btc/day
ethash @ 159Mhash/s @0.01031 btc/day

but with dual mining ethash + sai
ethash @ 128Mhash/s @0.00832 btc/day + sai @ 5.14GH/s @ 0.00929 btc/day
for a total of 0.01761 btc/day for dual mining.

but the way your miner (i.e. nicehash miner) is set up, i'll always be mining equi and losing on half of my potential income.

I cannot connect to the pascal.eu.nicehash.com - what port should I use?
Never mind, I managed to connect using the sia.eu.nicehash.
I used this to connect from my 1070 laptop:

[
   {"time":0,"commands":[
      {"id":1,"method":"algorithm.add","params":["sia","sia.eu.nicehash.com:3360","address.worker1"]}
   ]},
   {"time":3,"commands":[
      {"id":1,"method":"worker.add","params":["0","0"]},
      {"id":1,"method":"worker.add","params":["0","0"]}
   ]},
   {"time":10,"loop":10,"commands":[
      {"id":1,"method":"worker.print.speed","params":["0"]},
      {"id":1,"method":"worker.print.speed","params":["1"]},
      {"id":1,"method":"algorithm.print.speeds","params":["0"]}
   ]}
]

Can somebody please help a poor guy and edit this for a 5 Nvidia GPU rig? I have no ideea how to set these, but if somebody can show me I think I will get the hang of it for next time.
