You've got something WIERD going on if you have to run Chrome to get max hashrate - perhaps you don't have Afterburner set to run at startup, or something else is interfering?

Yeah, I don't get that at all. As soon as I apply the overclock settings in Afterburner, I see the increase Sol/s in the miner. No need to run anything else.

I admit it is weird, but two computers, different Windows version, different cads, different tools to OC (both apply settings at startup). Only same is DSTM and latest nVidia drivers.

And obviously this guy has same problem:

Found the probable reason this has lower scores than the EWBF miner. Turns out it does not trigger 3D mode on your card, which disables OC and Boost.
You can replicate that by running Media Player Classic in Enhanced Video Renderer mode and even minimizing the paused video.
I got between 30 and 50 extra Sol/s

We both just need something that triggers 3D mode, DSTM miner just can't do it itself. Without 3D mode, no Boost, thus no OC of the core (other things works).

Maybe it is the latest driver problem...?

ppl I got 5 GTX 1070 cards, look at img, GPU0 and GPU2 are the same brand/model but getting diff sols/s, even GPU0 with lower core clock +110 give me more sols than GPU2 +150 both same memoryF and same TDP 65%, any ideas? thx in advance

Do you have a monitor attached to GPU2? You'll generally see lower hash rates on GPUs with monitors attached (or using team-viewer etc). If you leave it a while to idle you'll probably see it pick up pace.

nope there is not any display connected, so the low sols on THAT card is always, even there is a general drop when I connected via RD I know and is fine cuz i just  connect 2 orr 3 times per day checking temp but the thing is that I always had lower sols only that card :/ I tested everything but I don't wanna be stopping the rig a lot b'cuz at least I got a global of 2200 sols/s on this DSTM miner that i think is the fastest I could find (apologize 4 my bad english is not my native language as u can see).

I did a lot of research trying config solutions(software) thats why I ask here but I think I'll need to do some hardware tests may be another riser or so, I'll being updating if I can find a sol thx.

Does it happen if you just swap cards, is it always GPU2 or lower hash rate travels accordingly to changing position of that card?

Did you checked, that OC is really applied? Does really core of the card running on wanted frequency with that power limit?

And you can always try running Chrome (just kidding, but it helps me!) Cheesy

There is nothing weird about it, afterburner it self does not render anything using GPU. Perhaps you are just using a aftermarket card that does include OC in the BIOS from the manufacturer.

IDK what your on about, just did a performance test with a 3d app, (put everything on lowest settings) and i dropped 80 sols. To me it looks like it is already using 3d capabilities.

GTX Cards have profiles and switching between them changes the way boost and OC works. Simply put, the computation does not trigger a profile used when playing games or using hardware acceleration.
Once I trigger the change (for example media player with HW acceleration) the driver does increase clock of the card and enables boost to increase it even more.

I suppose most users use aftermarket cards and those are OC by default in BIOS. I am using reference GTX 980 and the difference is over 200MHz in Core Clock of the card

Well, both my cards are aftermarket one I believe:

GTX 1070Ti: https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=08G-P4-5671-KR
GTX 1060 6GB: http://www.gainward.com/main/vgapro.php?id=990&lang=en

Both needs something else then DSTM miner to trigger Boost or additional OC of the core.

I really wonder if I had this problem with EWBF. If not, than it is possible for miner to trigger the correct mode to get full speed. Would be nice if DSTM could look into this.

I'm running a 6GPU rig GTX1070's hashing good 2,655 Sol/s. Running PSU 100%.
Do I really need to change the clock settings?

One of my rigs has reference 1080s in it. went and checked, their all running with 3d capabilities right now, i did nothing to the cards. are you running 5.7 or 5.6?

I'm running 0.5.7, but with 0.5.6 it was the same I believe.

I am also running 5.7, the issue is easy to replicate on my system. If I turn off anything that access 3D acceleration it drops the core clock to default in the BIOS.

If your clockrate profile is the same for both intervals, then this is not a problem for you.

Overlock GTX 1070 can increase hashrate to 510~520+ Sol/s, each card.

But it's may be unstable(crash, black screen etc.), you need to do some test, find the right settings of your card.

In AB I have "synchronize setting for similar graphics processors" checked.  Helps keep all settings closer.

 Overclocking memory on a GTX 1070 doesn't seem to help noticeably IF at all on equihash mining - overclock CORE does help some usually.

 Might depend on the specific card though.

My Gigabyte 1070's and 1070ti's definitely benefit from both core and memory overclock.  I have done extensive testing and both seem to increase hashrates independently, around 5 to 15%  I only mine equihash.

Also for me it is neccessary to overclock not just core, but also memory. The best results giving me to overclock memory with the x3 added frequency to the core, for example if core is +200 MHz, than memory must be around +600 MHz. Overclocking one without the other does not provide good results. It applies on both my cards in my case, the 1060 6GB and 1070 Ti. And for both it provides added 10 to 15% speed compared to basic nVidia Boost frequencies. For 1070 Ti it is 50 Sols extra (530 total). For 1060 it is 45 Sols (345 total).

Hi,

Since yesterday I have an issue : sinit timeout after GPU connection

I though it was a driver error so uninstalled/reinsitalled drivers, but nothing changes.

I then tried on a second RIG I have with NVidia cards : same issue.

In the sametime, Claymore Ethereum is working fine on those cards...

Any suggestion ?

 I didn't say anything about 1070 ti cards here - and do keep in mind I'm the one Voskcoin credits with the "+200 +700" settings he used in that first 1070 ti equihash rig video of his. 9-)

 Many of my 1070 cards ARE Gigabyte, and dropping memory from +500 (as high as they go and stay stable) to -500 had ZERO effect on hashrate.
 Might be power level related, since I'm running them around 105 watts for EFFICIENT mining, not pushing them for max hashrate.
 Might also be a difference between LINUX and Windows or the specific drivers, but I doubt that.

My 1070's run with a +650 mem overclock (totally stable) and reducing that to zero or even only +300 reduces hashrates noticeably.  I run my cards at 65% which equates to around 120 watts.  Running on Windows 10 with the latest drivers.
