Just for testing i use these settings:

setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0
setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 85
setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 85

But it still blast on 100% according to task manager. And i wonder why?

Is this still the best miner for ETC? Hasn't been updated in a good while.. Should I try using the newest Claymore? I have a small set up, 1x 1660ti 2x 1050ti. I mostly mine RVN and ETC. I get around 15MH/1050ti and 29MH/1660ti right now using Phoenixminer 4.2c. No PL +675 mem on all of them. Cruising at a nice brisk 50-53C.

Any suggestions on getting the most out of them? Phoenix still the best option???

Yes. Phoenix is a bit better in speed than Claymore. And don't forget to make autotune or manual adjustion of -gt parameter for each card. It individual and must be recalibrated every change of overclock settings.

For some reason, about 90% of the time i get incorrect shares after the dev fee switch is over, and it continues to create incorrects on other gpus until i restart the miner. But 10% of time it runs perfect after the dev switch with no incorrects. This wouldnt be an issue but when i get these incorrects my effective hashrate drops 20% and stays that low until i restart the miner. Any idea how to fix this ? (this does not happen in claymore )

Try to remove epools.txt from miner folder.

Hello!

I installed the radeon-software-adrenalin-2019-19.7.1-minimalsetup-190708_web driver on the new farm

Then I got this ...

https://s8.hostingkartinok.com/uploads/images/2019/07/bdfd5a743b8407fbd0135886f13843e6.jpg

I have
PhoenixMiner v. 4.2 c
Windows 10.0.18362.175 v. 1903 June 2019 x64
Sapphire RX 470 Nitro + 4Gb (Elpida)

I installed the same drivers but another farm (Windows 10.14393.1066 Pro v. 1607), got this error:
https://i.ibb.co/LtX7Tqj/1.png

How is it treated?

How is it treated?

So 2 things:

the first message is typical as PM when teh amd driver changes will often still work but just not verified and optimized to latest AMD driver. that should be fine.

the second message

I dont know your start command line but make sure you add

-acm

this is for any amd based gpus to then be set optimally.


last message I think the server is either using Nvida gpus only or some other type.

Can you list gpus in teh last windows setup?

Phoenix Miner 4.2c have full support AMD drivers up to 19.4.3. On later drivers miner woudn't use optimized and double kernels and may (and will) cause many rejected shares.
We need miner update to use new drivers...

why would you want anything above 18.6.1 for polaris?

wouldn't it be nice to have an option for devfee in ZIL? along with coin switching for the time there's no POW on ZIL...Smiley

Old drivers havn't support for Windows 1903 version. 18.5.1 and 18.6.1 is more than year old. They maybe work, but can cause system errors and instability. Options in Radeon Settings may not work. For example, didn't work Crossfire settings...

I like Phoenix miner but didn't like his drivers dependence... Claymore's miner didn't have it. Phoenix faster Claymore's miner about 1% (including some lower fee), but with Claymore's miner I can use latest drivers. So I forced to use Claymore's miner. It's sad but true...

So found another issue, now when i try to connect to a etc pool right after dag creation or before the last gpu's dag completes i get "Stratum thread not responsive for 51s" and it shuts down. watchdog is disabled as well. Ive went back to claymore and it does not have this issue. what could be causing this?

I see same problem on my 2GPUs: when miner creating new DAG files for mining devfee on another pool and switching back to my coin and pool its happenning. I even deleted file epools.txt (saw an advise here), but problem is still exist. WIN10x64 Catalyst 19.4.3. RX470&480 8Gb.

This doesn't happens on my RX 580 8Gb cards. The same system and driver versions... Print your command line or bat file. After returning to my pool from devfee miner rebuilds DAG again if needed...

Agree, same for me and only on some RIG´s. Hopefully thatcan be fixed soon

The first beta of 4.5 is finally here. We tried to delay it until the RX5700 kernels were ready but there seems to be some kind of bottleneck on these cards and we haven't figured out how to work around it yet. You can download PhoenixMiner 4.5b from here:

(MEGA links are no longer active)

If you want to check the integrity of the downloaded file, please use the following hashes (you need the last file PhoenixMiner_NVRTC_Windows.zip only if you want to mine BCI with Nvdia cards under Windows):

Here are the new features for this release:

  • Changes in Nvidia kernels for more stable work and better utilization of the GPU
  • Implemented ProgPOW BCI mining for Nvidia cards too. Under Windows you must download and unpack the file PhoenixMiner_NVRTC_Windows.zip in the same folder as PhoenixMiner.exe in order to mine BCI with Nvidia cards.
  • Added support for all new AMD Windows drivers up to the latest 19.7.2
  • Added support for all new AMD Linux drivers up to the latest 19.30-838629
  • Added hardware control and monitoring (clocks, voltages, fans, etc.) for Nvidia cards under Windows. Note that you should specify the clocks for Nvidia cards relative to the defaults (e.g. -mclock +400 instead of -mclock 4400)
  • Added hardware control and monitoring (clocks, voltages, fans, etc.) for Radeon VII cards (Windows only)
  • Added advanced hardware monitoring (specify -hstats 2 to activate it). It will show you the GPU core and memory clocks, voltages, and P-states (if supported)
  • Added GPU power consumption if the driver reports it. You can also specify the idle power (-pidle), PSU/GPU efficiency (-ppf) and electricity cost (-prate) and have the miner calculate the daily electricity costs for you. If you are using third-party mining software which doesn't expect the power consumption figures in the miner's log, you can disable it by specifying -hstats 0
  • Added new parameter -mt to set the memory timings on AMD cards. -mt 0 is the default, which uses the VBIOS memory timings. -mt 1, and -mt 2 use predefined memory timings that are independent from the VBIOS timings. This option is useful for mining with RX580/570/560/480/470/460 cards without modding the VBIOS. This works only on Windows and with relatively recent drivers (from the last 6-8 months)
  • The bench mode now works for dual mining and ProgPOW. The algorithm is determined by the -coin and -dcoin parameters. E.g. -bench 10 -coin bci will bench the BCI ProgPOW, and -bench 10 -dcoin blake2s will bench the dual mining
  • Increased the maximum supported DAG epoch to 450. Note that AMD drivers don't allow buffers larger than 4 GB so the biggest possible DAG epoch with current AMD drivers is 378
  • Added the ability to read the "FriendlyName" from Windows registry and use it (if available) instead of the generic card name from the driver
  • Fixed the devfee pools for some of the alternative coins like PIRL and others where many pools either disappeared or are using old pre-fork versions of the clients and are mining on the wrong blockchain
  • Other small improvements and fixes.

I have no instability or errors, all work like a charm. Crossfire option? Why i need crossfire settings? And i don´t need any Radeon settings, i flash the bios and thats it.
