Prospector - 0.0.9-ALPHA

New in version 0.0.9:
  • Configuration file now uses TOML format instead of JSON
  • Fixed SIA mining
  • Added small REST API

New in version 0.0.7:

  • New optimized kernels for AMD GCN devices ( RX 4** and RX 5** ). Stock RX 570 can now do about 19.3 MH/s .
  • More frequent logging
  • Fixed a bug where miner would stop reporting average hashrates



Hello, for past few weeks our small team was working hard on creating a new cryptocurrency miner, that would be able to utilize all the system resources for cryptocurrency mining. The result of this work is new altcoin miner, that can mine simultaneously on CPU and GPU.

Miner is written in Rust, and was developed with expandability and ease of use in mind. Usage of this language will allow easy addition of new algorithms, communication protocols and other advanced features.

Currently planned features in next few releases:
  • Alternate coin Support -  Dcr, Zcash on GPU, HodlCoin on CPU
  • Cuda support(will be published as library on crates.io)
  • Advanced optimizations of already supported algorithms
  • Control & Monitoring server implementation (will be open source with custom protocol)


Current State
Miner currently supports Ethash, Sia and Signatum coins on GPU with competitive performance, and CryptoNight coins on CPU with above average performance.

Download
Miner can be downloaded from:
https://github.com/semtexzv/Prospector/releases
And more info is available at:
https://github.com/semtexzv/Prospector

Caveats
  • Miner currently only uses OpenCL, and might have problems with Nvidia GPUs on windows
  • Miner contains 1% devfee, however this devfee WILL NOT increase in any future update

Nevest version (0.0.5) now faster than sgminer (should be) on Signatum Smiley

Got reports of 19.8MH/s on RX 480 (https://www.reddit.com/r/Signatum/comments/6s0re7/ann_prospector_now_supports_signatum/).

Your biggest selling point atm  could be skunkhash performance on AMD cards,
as mining with official sgminer puts AMD cards on a slower side

How about you post result of few AMD cards?

But with current signatum craze, you don't have days to spend on development...hours maybe

If you make a miner for SIGNATUM AMD is better than it is - people are interested.

Start the miner, it will generate example configuration, then change "gpu-coin"  entry to "sigt" and enter your pool information in "pools", then start it again, and it should mine on your pool with your information.

Also, you should disable cpu mining by setting "enabled" in "cpu" to false.

There is small entry on configuration file on wiki : https://github.com/semtexzv/Prospector/wiki/Configuration-File

In the new version there is a performance jump. I made a screenshot. The speed reading is better than in SGMINER. But you need to somehow remove the performance dips.

UPD
This result is obtained on Rx580. The RX570 does not. Tell me, what drivers were tested? Which one do you recommend?

Thanks! works great with RX470 4GB on sigt - average 16 - 18MHs much better than the sgminer I used before.

I think I know where are dips coming from, they are probably synchronized with new jobs arriving ( try to spot if it's the case).

I don't know about driver, I don't have any AMD cards for testing.

I sort of sorted it out with jumps. Memory errors skipped. Has lowered frequency, I test.

did that thanks.

How to chose between GPU algos? I currently deleted address from all other coins and left only SIGT so it mines just that.


What is more important for SIGT mining Core or Memory speed any advices for rx 470 or rx 480?

There is "gpu-coin" field in the configuration file.
