Cast XMR - Highspeed CryptoNight (Monero/Bytecoin/DigitalNote/Intense) Miner for Radeon RX Vega GPUs

Update to version 0.7 on 2017/11/29

Cast XMR reaches hash rates of more then 2050 CryptoNight Hashes/s on an single RX Vega 56 or Vega 64 GPU.



Features

- Full support for CryptoNight/CryptoNote based currencies:
  • Monereo (XMR)
  • Bytecoin (BCN)
  • DigitalNote (XDN)
  • Intense (ITNS)
  • Electroneum (ETN)
- Fastest miner for AMD Radeon RX Vega GPU series (more then 2KHash/s)
- Optimized cores for RX Vega Blockchain driver
- RX Vega Blockchain driver detection
- Multiple GPU support for upto 8 Vega GPUs
- Monitor temperature and fan speed of each GPU
- Full pool support
- Nicehash support
- Remote http access for statistics in JSON format
- only 1.5% dev fee

Requirements

  - Windows 8/8.1/10 64 bit
  - AMD Radeon RX Vega 56/64 GPU with at least 8GB RAM
  - or AMD Radeon RX 480/RX 580 GPU with a least 4GB RAM
  - For about 80% higher hash rates the ReLive Edition Beta for [Suspicious link removed]pute Driver Version 17.30.1029 has to be installed

Version History

Cast XMR Version 0.7 (2017/11/29)

  - network and job status added to current statistics
  - remote access to get current status at http://127.0.0.1:7777 in JSON format (enable with --remoteaccess)

  - fix for nicehash to support upto 8 GPUs (before only 4 were possible)

Cast XMR Version 0.6 (2017/10/27)

  - improved queue sync which results in an 0.1% higher average hash rate
  - experimental support for Radeon RX 480/580 GPUs added
  - pessing 's' key prints the current statistics
  - count outdated and invalid shares separate
  - fixed random crash when quitting app

  - subtle performance improvements in core

Cast XMR Version 0.4 (2017/10/13)

  - performance optimizations result in 1 - 2% higher hash rates
  - reduced dev fee to 1.5%

Cast XMR Version 0.3 (2017/10/10)

  - performance optimizations result in 5 - 10% higher hash rates
  -  breaking the 2 KHashes/s barrier with working overclocking settings for RX Vega 64 and RX Vega 56

Cast XMR Version 0.2 (2017/09/27)

  - performance improvement result in 1% higher hashrates
  - Improved support for RX Vega 56 (now goes faster then a Vega 64 !?)
  - Detection if Blockchain driver is installed
  - Fix for Sikka and Intense pools

Cast XMR Version 0.1 (2017/09/22)

  - Initial Release

How To

Afraid, yes. It is bug in the AMD drivers. It does not matter if HBCC is turned on or off, just a change seems to be needed so that the driver gets correctly initialized. HBCC is a feature to stream data from disk to GPU memory it is a feature for games with huge textures not needed for mining.

Could not find a way to fix the problem programmatically yet.

Does anybody know a solution?

Hi, 2 KHashes/s is it from one card??? ,and it can works with other amd card's ?? Or it's only for Vega platform and HBM memory based cards Huh?

Finally. Something interesting. You have qutie the interesting way of structuring your kernels for CryptoNight. And I must say - the number of waves in flight you've managed by doing so is hot.

How much power for one of these cards? And where are miners buying them? Is there anywhere reputable that accepts crypto for payment internationally?  Embarrassed

Thanks, Sir.

Yes, the scheduling is very unorthodox, it uses 2 command queues which are started with an defined time offset. Still searching for an explanation why this faster than one larger queue. The scheduler does get the same work, but for some reason it likes it better that way. Probably very Vega specific but did not yet try it on different cards.

Vega 56 uses around 200w of power and most people in the US find the GPUs by price hunting, Newegg is a good spot to try to snipe these and they do accept Bitcoin for payment. In the US reddit’s /r/buildapcsales regularly posts nice deals for these cards.

Don't you want to try with Dagger-Hashimoto?
Cryptonight already has good multithreaded miner - xmr-stak-amd and your miner doesn't outperform it ...

Yeah, xmr-stak-amd - the miner which stole my code, violating its MIT license, and then had the balls to put a fee in it for himself.

Sorry, I'm not strong in licenses. xmr-stak-amd code is open sourced, contains reference to you and you can set fee to 0 and compile.
Moreover it has nice additional features and runs on Vega. Public sgminer with your kernel doesn't.

and its still slower than sgminer Cheesy
why dont you pay him back and release his miner without fee?

I first had a look at Dagger-Hashimoto for my OpenCL programming experiments... no luck yet.

Nice job, is this limited to only 4 Vega per motherboard like xmr-stak is, as well? Does it play nice with mixed gpu rigs with nvidia and amd?

After testing it says blockchain compute driver not installed. The blockchain driver is all I have installed, is this still miner only working for one gpu?
