Hi!

miniZ is a fast and friendly Equihash <144,5> <150,5> <125,4> <192,7> <210,9> <96,5> Cuda miner. https://miniz.ch

  * Supports mining all Equihash <144,5> (BTG, BTCZ, XSG, LTZ, BCRM, ANON…), <150,5> (GRIMM), <150,5,3> (Beam), <192,7> (ZER, SAFE, GENX, VDL, ZERC), <125,4> (ZEL), <210,9> (AION) and <96,5> (MNX) cryptocurrencies.
  * miniZ is compiled for Linux and Windows.
  * Requires minimum 2GB GPUs. Ex. GTX 1050 2GB.
  * Cool console output and telemetry monitoring.
  * Supports most mining pools.
  * Developer fee is set to 2%.

Use Cuda 10.0 versions with the RTX GPUs. For other GPUs you should test and see which performs best.

miniZ v1.5r
* Major performance improvement for 210,9, for all GPUs. Up to 7%, depending on GPU.
* Improved stability. (This was mostly affecting Beam mining)
* miniZ updates the hashrate when not mining. It drops to zero when mining stops.
* Better handling of “worker not autorized” error.
* Minor bug fixes.

If you are tuning your cards, do not forget to use --oc1 or --oc2 options to match your OC settings!

Hi, Just thought you would like to know it does work with ZhashOS using Nvidia 384.111 driver.

Really like the UI report information. Sol rate was a little slower using the same O/C settings for EWBF.

I was seeing 35.5-36 Sol/s with 1070ti @ 104w, +240cc, +1290mc. I would normally see 36-42 Sol/s.

But I only ran it for a few minutes as it is late here.

I'll try to see if the app can allow a higher O/C bump tomorrow and let you know.

I think you are off to a really good start, but will need to get more optimization to be head on competitive.

Looking forward to your continued efforts!

Hi Overdrive5, thank you for your encouragement and feedback.

Indeed, it is important to know it does work with ZhashOS using Nvidia 384.111 driver.
 
Unfortunately, I do not have a 1070Ti so it is not (yet) optimized for that GPU.
However, miniZ Sol/s take sometime to stabilize, since it uses an exponential running mean. Your Sol/s may still go up a little bit.

Keep me up to date with your findings Smiley

Result of 5 x 1070 Ti tuned rig (PL=120W, OC=200/1200):



With EWBF the hash rate is 233 sol/s at max. 64 °C GPU temperature.

Watching the nvidia-smi table I realized that the GPU usage switches between 98% and 100% with miniZ miner.
EWBF solved this issue in v0.5, GPU usage stays always at 100%.

Hope, that helps for improving your miniZ.

 Hi Swisstrader,

 thanks a lot for your feedback.
 Indeed, miniZ is not optimized for the GTX 1070 Ti, but we are woking on it and it will be fixed in the next version.
 Btw, did you test it on windows or linux?
 Cheers!

Hi,

It should work fine.

Unfortunately, we do not have a 1080Ti so we don't know how well it would perform.

It would be great to have your feedback Smiley

Hi,

It is good to know!

For both speed and consumption there are differences, for that GPU. Although they are not the same, they look less dissimilar if one looks at efficiencies.

It is always better to let miniZ run for a bit, so that it can be closer to a steady state. The average tends to be pretty stable making it easier to compare.

Thank you for the feedback. Smiley
