Should we still wait for a Linux version?
Is Zawawa still working on this project?

Is there still AMD support in excavator 1.3.0 ?  Just tried to install nicehash miner v2 and there is no AMD support anymore?!

On their website there is version 1.8.3 to support AMD. But she is still raw and I have the impression that now the software on their website are Amateurs. The latest stable version for GPU of AMD was 1.7.14 Now she had removed from the site, but 1.8 an order of magnitude worse.

I got no problems with legacy miner, runs stable with my RX570 cards. After latest update i got no problems with algo switch either.
I've already done tests with excavator 1.2.11a and my AMD GPUs but dual mining was not optimal while single mining gave me same mh/s as claymore.

I'm still looking foward to switch to excavator because it is developed for nicehash as far as i know, so why should a use claymore if the pool i'm using  pays devs to develop a miner for their pool.

I guess Zawawa is busy polishing things.

Excavator 1.2.11a does not support dual algorithms for dual mining.

I am, I am... I prepared Debian packages long time ago, but they have been put on hold for logistical reasons.
Unfortunately, I seem to have little control over the release date. So sorry about that...

Hello,
Can we dual mine with lbry to suprnova?

Thanks.

At this point, you can do this only with NVIDIA cards.
By the way, I am currently working on cryptonight for CUDA.
I hope djeZo would let me get back to AMD stuff sooner than later...

I'm so sorry, guys... I guess I will have to resurrect Gateless Gate for AMD cards.

Np, but whats the point of maintaining two different applications (excavator&legacy)? I don't understand this as a nicehash customer.
Or  is this again  nv vs amd brand bullshiting?

I'm testing the new version 1.3.1a and see on the local monitoring page the efficiency is 0.00
See screenshot :

What I also see is that the speed is lower and I get more Job not found errors. Is this known?

These two applications are very different internally and NiceHash Legacy is maturer and more stable at this point, so we decided to let the user choose. I believe we will completely switch to excavator once it hits the same level of stability.

As for NVIDIA v.s. AMD, they found that NiceHash'es current and potential customer bases consist disproportionately of NVIDIA users. Also, djeZo was not particularly impressed by the fact that the AMD platform was generally very unstable. I personally prefer a wild ride in the AMD land, but he surely knows what he is doing and he has the final say, so there was not much I could do...

Well, that's really a bad news, but still hoping you can resurrect GG for amd then.
Love nicehash like the old days, one software for both cards  Lips sealed

I know... Well, this turn of events gives me an excuse to work on GG again, so it may not be that bad after all.

so legacy will be removed sooner? just like what you have said legacy got a stable mining capability and i think its good switching coins from one another
i'm still new with mining and legacy was the first app that i use, hopefully i'll be able to maximize my earnings from your app and looking forward to try
using excavator and see it by myself if what this version can bring me, also have amd cards.

@zawawa

I just downloaded 1.3.1 alpha to test the dual mining, but still the miner gets Array errors when connecting to Nanopool.

Can you please confirm if Excavator is being limited to Nicehash pools only?

--ypsi

I was never told that excavator was for NiceHash only.
I will look into this.
