i don't understand why this "excavator" even starts when another.... for example claymore_zcash is picked ?  Angry

also i have strange problem - after installing this new alpha nicehash 2.0.0.7 performance of claymore_zcash dropped. its lower on new version
now its dropped on old version of nicehash.....
dropped on standalone version of claymore_zcash tied to another pool.
dropped even on another system (on win 190 that i have installed just in case) on same pc.
have no idea what happened but performance clearly dropped . i hope it did not changed videocard bios or something.

p.s. any way to uninstall this new driver? windows tried to block it... but if its got installed with bat or something..... any way to turn it off?
i'm new to this all .... seen some programs like sgminer gominer cgminer cpuminer-x64 ZecMiner64
but never seen one that installs some kind of driver in system permanently to work. is it really needed?

1)how much ram need to NiceHash?
4gb ram(i have) enough?
or 8gb ram will more effective for mining?
because before mining i reciving message about virtual ram.

2)also farm 6x1070 dont use equihash algo for mining. why?
Lbry most time.

Turns out I didn't reset my cards to stock before running this.. Is there anyway to reset the software and start again?

have no idea what happened but performance clearly dropped . i hope it did not changed videocard bios or something.

I checked logs old logs for my 7950 / win 8.1
"Claymore's ZCash AMD GPU Miner v12.5"

before installing nicehash 2.0.0.7
ZEC - Total Speed: 267.107 H/s  Grin something around 260+/255 ish definitely. with wow classic running on low or with browser was getting like 230-240.


after installing  nicehash 2.0.0.7
ZEC - Total Speed: 239.876 (it starts fast but gets slower and slower and slower to this numbers)  Sad
now for example same version that was shipped with 1.7.5.13 shows only 238... below 240. i can close browser and there is no small games running ... and it will be below 240 anyway.

nothing changed in system at all. same driver. no updates.
same clock speed. same bat file. same program.
same everything. somehow new 2.0.0.7 version installation "cripped" my card.

Uninstalling nicehash 2 and rebooting is not helping. Also card runs 2 degrees lower.

p.s.
For some reason effect persists even on win 10. and i didn't installed 2.0.0.7 on it. really strange.
same Claymore's ZCash AMD GPU Miner v12.5 +same bat. now i just get lower numbers.... but was getting 260+ stable (without additional load) for 3 days of using that 12.5 version.


Its really not messing with bios or power management settings  Huh
i thought it can be insensitivity drop... but nope... it was running on "6". running with "7" insensitivity not helping too anyway.
Littterally it was showing around 265-267 sols/s when i stopped nicehash 1.7.5.13..... seconds before installing/uninstalling 2.0.0.7..... and after that even old nicehash 1.7.5.13 shows 236/239.7.
it just doesn't "stabilize" on higher number of sol/s as it was before installation of new alpha version.

Zawawa, The dag epoch 129+ on polaris cards will begin to suffer perfomance in Eth and Etc,
Are you aware of this problem?

Any solution incoming?

Tested v1.2.6 alpha with daggerhashimoto and got 1/3 the speed of the latest GatelessGate.

Am I doing something wrong?

Code:
[
{"time":0,"commands":[
{"id":1,"method":"algorithm.add","params":["daggerhashimoto","daggerhashimoto.eu.nicehash.com:3353","1NNEZsaaqyAAJeDsFbD1rkQqdAaCNvKciZ.PC"]}
]},
{"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":"algorithm.print.speeds","params":["0"]}
]}
]

Thanks, that did it. However, still 10% slower than GG :-(

Any ideas to improve RX 480 performance?

What about mining to other pools other than NH? Can it be done? I got an error with Ethermine  Huh

Running 7 x rx480 OC'd & bios mod

Averaging about 184 MH/S

On Claymore I was running 195 MH/S but pool average was only 170 MH/S

Excavator output

Ethermine with claymore

I will be running this from now on.

Well done to the devs

You should check pool side also with excavator. And try to compare the performance with Gateless Gate. Taking into account the fees (Either Claymore's or Nicehash's), one of the best solutions might be to mine with GG on Ethermine :-). No devfee and low pool fee. Just an idea...

But excavator doesn't have any devfee, does it?

No, but you can't use it in any pool. If you use it in Nicehash you'll pay a high service fee.

Mind elaborating why using excavator on nicehash has a really high service fee???

So the first post in this topic isn't correct?
Quote
Excavator is a multi-algorithm advanced CUDA and OpenCL miner. Miner is close-sourced, but open to ANY pool and does NOT contain any fees.
I'm still new to this miner and haven't really had a chance to use it properly. You're saying it won't work with ethermine?
