Hello all.
Rig 5cards : 2 rx480 nitro+(ubermix 3.1) and 3 gtx 1070.
Driver 18.6.1 for rx
416.94 for gtx

Since 19/03 one of my rx480 nitro+ 11260-07-20G getting incorrect shares Cry
What i tried:
Stock clocks and bios
Change risers, now it is in the main MB slot.
-clkernel 0/1/2/3
-clnew 0
-clgreen 0/1
-mi 6-14


And it still getting incorrect shares.
https://c.radikal.ru/c11/1903/fa/c1600b8d2485.jpg
Hwinfo says 0 errros

The second rx480 works fine no incorrect shares.
The miner 4.1c / 4.2a /4.2b doesnt matter.
I think this is new kernels, but don't know for 100%,.

Thanks

The 4.2c is ready (this will probably be the final 4.2 release provided no major bugs are found). You can download PhoenixMiner 4.2c from here:

If you want to check the integrity of the downloaded file, please use the following hashes:

Here are the changes for this release:

  • Added new Nvidia kernels v3 with slightly higher hashrate and lower power consumption. The new kernels are supported only on GTX1050/1060/1070/1080/Ti GPUs and are enabled by default on these GPUs. Note that you can't use these kernels for dual-mining, only -nvkernel 2 works for dual mining on Nvidia.
  • Added parameter to enable or disable driver-specific optimizations on Nvidia GPUs. Use -nvdo 1 (the default is 0) to enable the optimizations. This won't change hashrate (or will change it only slightly) but may make the cards more stable depending on the concrete Nvidia driver.
  • Fixed the slower DAG generation on Vega and Radeon VII GPUs
  • Added support for Windows AMD drivers 19.3.3
  • Small bugfixes

Here are the changes from 4.2a to 4.2b:

  • Fixed the issue with Nvidia RTX20x0 and 1660 cards not working with 4.2a
  • Fixed the problem with the watchdog timer when solo mining
  • Added support for Windows AMD drivers 19.3.2
  • Small bugfixes

Here are the changes from 4.1c to 4.2a:

  • Added support for dual mining Ethash and Blake2s on Nvidia GPUs
  • Added experimental support for ProgPOW mining of Bitcoin Interest (BCI). Note that the kernels are not optimized and only work on AMD. You must add -coin bci to the command line (or COIN: bci to your epools.txt file) in order to mine BCI.
  • Added support for EthereumStratum/2.0.0 protocol (use -proto 5 if the pool requires it).
  • AMD hardware control code was rewritten, now should be more stable and work on older cards too
  • Added command-line option -fcm to set the way fans are controlled (AMD/Windows only). The possible values are 0 (auto; the default behavior), 1 (use VBIOS/driver), 2 (force custom control of the fans regardless of VBIOS/drivers fan curves, etc). Use -fcm 2 if the  fans are not controlled properly or at all
  • Added support for Radeon VII
  • Added support for AMD drivers up to 19.3.1
  • Added new command-line option -nvkernel to select the old (v1) or new (v2) CUDA kernels. The possible values are 0 (auto; the default), 1 (use the old v1 CUDA kernels from PhoenixMiner 3.5), 2 (use the new v2 kernels, which were introduced with PhoenixMiner 4.0). This was added because there were some complains that the new kernels are running slower on some Nvidia cards. Note that v1 CUDA kernels doesn't support dual mining.
  • Increased the maximum supported DAG epoch to 329. This should be fine for at least a year or so.
  • Added support for direct mining without DAG switching of Yocoin (YOC), Bitcoiin2Gen (B2G), Ethersocial (ESN), Atheios (ATH), and REOSC. See the -coin parameter in Readme.txt for more information.
  • Other small improvements and fixes.

Here is an example command-line for mining BCI (ProgPOW) - be sure to change YourBciWalletAddress with your actual BCI wallet address:
Code:
PhoenixMiner.exe -pool eu-1.pool.bci-server.com:3869 -wal YourBciWalletAddress.Rig1 -coin bci -proto 1

Hardware control options (-tt, -fanmin, -fanmax, -cclock, etc.) are not supported on Linux yet.

Is this -tmax 80 -tstop 85 -tstart 80 didn't work in Linux too? Thanks.
   -tstart and -tstop will work as they only require the card temperature to be properly measured and this is supported in Linux. -tmax won't work in Linux.



Green kernels do not work on vega 64 or radeon vii

Are they supposed to?
   No, there are no green kernels (or turbo kernels) for Vega and Radeon VII.


Thank you PhoenixMiner for your response.
Yes, it is strange because only 2-3 cards have this issue, go under 32.xxx and on both rigs is the same. If it's how you said then all should have the same speed ... this is the theory Smiley
I will try to update also the driver, maybe ... I will change something or I will destroy everything Smiley)

thanks and regards!
   Try the new PhoenixMiner 4.2c - the new v3 kernels should decrease the power consumption and if the cards are hitting the power limit, this can increase the hashrate quite a bit. If this doesn't help, try -nvkernel 2 with and without -nvdo 1 to see if the hashrate stabilizes.

    This has nothing to do with the kernels as this is happening in only one card. The zero memory errors that you are seeing doesn't necessarily mean that the card is OK. Most probably the card itself is going bad (either the GPU or the VRAM, most probably the VRAM) as the percent of incorrect shares is very high. If the card has 8 GB VRAM, you can try a "workaround", which may work if only one of the memory chips is bad, so there is at least some region in VRAM, which is OK - when you see the incorrect shares, disable only this card from the PhoenixMiner, then run another instance of PhoenixMiner only on this card, which will create another DAG buffer, hopefully in a healthy region of the VRAM.

-clkernel 3 gives me 31.4MHs on RX 470 8Gb, 31.3MHs without. Is this normal ?

this thing is crashing periodically by identical way,
without any error messages
and unable to self reset either.
its just self quit.

happens on 1080 Ti cards
(tried drastically down-clock them, nothing helps, swap is set to min 65555MB)
    As this seems like a problem with DAG generation, please try using -lidag 1 (or more) to lower the DAG generation speed.

Thanks, will do, but what bothers me is that in 1st post it says:
Quote
-lidag <n> Slow down DAG generation to avoid crashes when swiching DAG epochs
      (0-3, default: 0 - fastest, 3 - slowest). This option works only on AMD cards

this info is wrong/outdated?
will really works for Nvidia cards?

you use 2 different kernels so the speed can be different.  Roll Eyes

Hi there,

Currently I work as a supporter for a group of clients who have rigs and as reward for the support, I take about 5% of total mined coins per 1 month. The payment (with coins) is done by the end of each month.
I was wondering is it possible to create an option for supportfee Smiley
It's OK to have a DevFee but also it could be useful for me to have a SupportFee.
For example I'll set 5% SupportFee which will be on my address and the rigs will mine 5% for me as a supporter.

Is it possible to have an option like this?

Thanks,

I mean "Why I get only 0.1MHs with that qualified TURBO kernel ?". It's 0.31% more hashrate ...

I have some doubts on that benchmark:

I'm running with:
60% power, -150 core clock and +780 mem clock and I have around 32.5 - 32.8 ... depends..and the power is about ~ 100 W / card
Ok, I know there is no additional info regarding card brand and other settings but it's quite strange, I run the cards higher and I don't get over 33 Mh/s  Huh

Maybe its not the same memory type...AMD cards vary wildly depending on memory manufacturer, and although we can modify BIOS-es,
final result still depend a lot on memory manufacturer

Yes, agree with you, that's why I said there are others things between. We all want to "suck" all from this cards with minimum power Smiley
Anyway, with the new version, PhoenixMiner 4.2c I'm back with 230.xxx Mh/s (7 cards) on one rig (driver 391.35) and 229.xxx on the second one (driver 419.35 + all updates on windows - i will install again the driver with DDU, maybe will be a change because it was an update, if not I will change with an old driver).

Hi, PhoenixMiner!

Thank for new version. I tested it for a while and did not find any improvements at least on P104 gpus. kernels 2 & 3 perform mostly the same. (linux, driver 418)
btw, miner reports cuda runtime v8.0. what about building against v10.0? can it give improvement?
the second question about adding support for switching to Zilliqa. It will be interesting even with higher devfee.

Buy yourself a wattmeter and you'll find 1.5% lower power consumption with kernel 3.

ok. I have it. and I will measure it. But driver itself reports the same consumption. and on nvidia it is quite accurate.
btw, P104 and P102 gpus are a bit different in power consumption from GTX.
