This is a thread to provide a bounty for this project.

The details of the project should be discussed in this thread, and then when a clear goal of what we're looking for is obtained we will move forward. This discussion will focus around what level of performance is required to claim the bounty.

There are two separate bounties, one for Nvidia cards, and one for AMD cards. Each bounty is listed separately below.
There is now one bounty, for an AMD Miner. The bounty is listed below:


AMD Miner Pledged bounty:

-Keyboard-Mash: 150 XMR
-HardwarePal: 1 BTC
-Smooth: 300 XMR
-othe: 50 XMR

Total: 500 XMR, 1 BTC

Total Collected: 0 XMR, 0 BTC


Nvidia Miner Pledged bounty (Closed and fulfilled 4/17/2014):

-Keyboard-Mash: 150 XMR
-HardwarePal: .2 BTC
-Smooth: 300 XMR
-othe: 50 XMR

Total: 500 XMR, .2 BTC

Total Collected: 0 XMR, 0 BTC

Discussion started in main Monero thread, cross posting here to begin the discussion:

I think if some miners are interested we can help fund and opensource Claymores GPU miner and the Nvidia one (cant remember the members username) maybe Lucas's and Wolf's projects also.

I think creating a frontend GUI with temperatures (instead of Realtemp and Afterburner) would be a big +1 for newbs to the algo.

The diff should help the price imo.

Im looking longterm for XMR so I invested 30% of my BTC into coins, a private pool (due to DDOS issues) and helped the votes alittle on Mintpal.

Not a dev but I hope I can help the project flourish with a few ideas.



This is a very good idea. cbuchner1 announced that he has a miner. I think it's time to ask them (more than just one of us would be great) what they would consider accepting to open source their projects. This just seems like a crap joke at this point. It's great that claymore made a program .. but it's been described as terribly unoptimized by very knowledgeable sources. It needs to be open source, because claymore does not have the time to optimize it.

The problem here is that guys like cbuchner1 could be left with highly optimized miners, and we're just burning GPU power at this point. Mining is getting rough right now and it's really starting to choke off interest. People who aren't mining this right now aren't going to be the one's to come in and ask Claymore and cbuchner these questions .. it's kind of on us. There's one person in particular I know has a serious CPU farm here. I'm sure the private nvidia mining operation is somewhere near that at this point. We need to get on top of this.

Update 1: Claymore does not provide open source miners, period. We will need to start a fund for an open source AMD miner. I will kick it off with 150 XMR. I'd like to use an escrow or something if necessary.

If it can be done from one of the core members (crowdfunding) that would be great

Throw 1 BTC or the equivalent XMR into that from me for the AMD miner. And 0.2BTC for Nvidia (as I don't own any)

Will get the message out to a few friends that are already invested and mining Monero.

Update 2 Bounties : 150XMR + 1BTC for AMD Opensourced miner for XMR
                           150XMR + 0.2BTC  For Nvidia Opensourced miner for XMR

To kick off the discussion, I don't own Nvidia cards. I do own AMD cards.

I'd need something that can connect to the stratum and http pool servers
I'd need to see failover for pools.
I'd prefer to continue using catalyst 13.12.
It would need to be cross platform.
I'd like GPU temperature and overclocking management
I'd need it to be competitive, on a hashing basis, with other known miners

I'm open to discussion on anything that I said I didn't need.

For more information, take a look at Claymore's page for an example of what I think we'd like to start with.

Thanks for making the thread , I own Nvidia Cards but don't use them for mining. I use AMD R9-290s.

Features that would help alot
--gpu-engine
--gpu-memclock
--auto-fan
--temp-target
--temp-overheat
--temp-cutoff
--gpu-fan
--failover-only

aswell as temp and fan speeds

something similar to cgminer-sgminer would be perfect imo

Please consider this for more background discussion:

Elsewhere they say the difference in speed is 2.2 to 5 times as fast. That is far, far less then an order of magnitude.

CZ decided to launch a testnet, with links to the github weeks before the coin launched. While it seemed like a good idea at the time, to test his coin .. what he actually did was open it wide for people to prey on. I find it not only probable, but instead extremely likely, that there were GPU miners either at launch or within the week after it.

His unfamiliarity with the typical nature of this board left his coin extremely vulnerable and he is now left to contemplate a hard fork to stop the abuse. Please note that with this abuse he might not even have the ability to enforce a hardfork due to potential miner take over. Here is what I'm talking about, and this is half of the daily emission. Thus, 50% of mining is done by his software.

It does not matter if it's 2.2 to 5 times as fast, the time in which his coin has been exploited vs the time it has not been exploited is very large. Unfortunately, Claymore or another developer did not provide a GPU miner to act as a crutch until such time when an open source one was ready.

Fortunately, with the slower emission .. this has a chance to even out over time. I hope the best for him, but I do not believe he grasps the full nature of variables involved in what he's doing .. this is not knocking his ability to program.

With private GPU miners cornering the market, all CN coins stand to lose greatly

The idea is great. It is completely necessary to make open-source miner available. We are experiencing the period of unfair competition now and need to close it before it destroys the coin.

Any crawdfunding for the action?
Would gladly add my penny.

I would happily welcome a trusted escrow or recommended crowdfunding site. Does anyone have thoughts on this?

My proposition is:

1. Create clear and simple rules. Rules must state at least:
- The purpose: description what is the bounty for.
- How do attenders submit their job (i.e. by the github).
- Who can get the bounty. We may want it to be shared among contributors i.e. by the features provided.
- Who decide how the reward is used (i.e. the committee)

2. Find a trusted person to hold the deposit. Could it be a respected DEV. We need to ask them.

3. Make an external page for the announcement with addresses for the deposit and current amount of collected funds.
Because of some scam action the forum banned posting addresses.

Bounty for open-sourcing your Wild Keccak miner has risen to 880 BBR.

 Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh

while we're mining 5000-7000 coins a day this is not going to work Wink


Problem is that it's not worth it for the devs to release it for "chump change".

Why open source for 1 btc or so when you are mining 2 or 3 btc worth each day?

Why open source for 1 btc or so when you are mining 2 or 3 btc worth each day?

I have discussed the issue privately with both cbuchner1 and Claymore, asking for a quote to open source their software.

This is not a thread trying to pay them to open source their projects. This is a thread trying to get someone to work out a brand new miner, or adapt something like sgminer.

Claymore does not provide open source software, period.

cbuchner1 said flat out that he will not be releasing or open sourcing his miner, period. The implication was that it would be considered if we can offer him more than it would make him .. but nobody's going to pay him infinite money Wink

We're quickly entering a situation where private GPU miners are cornering the market .. not healthy.

Yes, we need to have open source miners but it isn't all about "unfair" advantages too.

Open source allows many other people to make optimizations where the original author might not have thought about or noticed.

Although I'm no coder, I believe that the current CryptoNight GPU miner is poorly optimized. (This is from personal experience, I've mined coins that are much more memory intensive than XMR i.e. 8MB vs the 2MB of CryptoNight and GPUs are definitely still faster than CPU, but again I'm not a coder so this is just my opinion) If it were open sourced, someone else might be about to spot the deficiencies and make improvements.

This is unfair as this is not only closer source but also platform depended. You don't pay to the Bill, you don't accept viruses - you're not allowed to use.
Cryptonight needs a very fast memory like cache L3 of CPU and it is why the performance will not have as a big advantage over CPU.

XMR is the reason why GPU mining will make a big come back to the scene. Don't sell your GPUs or smaller rigs for cheap anymore Wink

We're quickly entering a situation where private GPU miners are cornering the market .. not healthy.
+1... I'm confident that the serious investors that are committed to xmr/cryptonight will soon realize that if not "investing" on the development of a more democratic mining infrastructure, their holdings will remain undervalued. Sooner rather than later, I hope...

I don't have the funds to add to the bounty, but I pledge a 10% donation of a month's worth of mining proceeds (with my massive 4xGPU rig) to the author of an open source miner for nvidia.
Adding to the above, I pledge to offer said author, 1 medium sized pizza, with 3 toppings of his choosing, and optionally 'extra cheese', delivered to his doorstep, provided that pizza delivery is available in his place of residence.

Haha, I like this post very much. But hmm, I am willing to donate for a BBR gpu miner, or MCN, if that is what this post is about. I can throw 10XMR into the bounty.

This thread has nothing to do with BBR. That uses its own miner. MCN should work with the same miner as all the other cryptonote/cryptonight coins (XMR, BCN, etc.)

Fresh out of the oven, don't have any performance data beyond personal testing during development with my GTX 750 Ti rig. Does around 200-220 H/s per card for a 750 Ti, both stratum and http protocols supported for pool mining. Haven't actually tested solo. Compiles and runs both on Linux and Windows pretty much straight out of the box. Linux highly recommeded over Windows. Has issues with massive lag if run on a Windows primary GPU, practically renders the computer unusable due to the hashing kernel grabbing the GPU for 1-2 seconds at a time. Pretty much what happens with every other algorithm, this is just orders of magnitude worse. Looking into breaking the kernel into smaller pieces to hopefully alleviate the problem.

You must compile it yourself but right now it's bugged like hell for Windows.

There's a windows compile from one of the trusted members at the cudaminer/ccminer thread. It's not all that buggy, but also far from optimized. As it stands right now, this miner is relying heavily on CPU also, so there's certainly room for improvements (50% CPU usage with 4x750 TIs and an i7 4770 on Windows).

The pizza awaits a destination! (though waiting to get acceptance from the bounty author and to see if there is consensus on the miner performance as deserving of the bounty, might require some finishing touches)

Most of the CPU use is likely just polling for completion of the kernel aka http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Busy_waiting, which kinda sucks but seems like standard behavior. I'll see about working around it, looks like a "are we ready yet? no? sleep a bit." approach might do the trick instead of just calling a sync which then proceeds to busy wait until the kernel completes, eating whatever cpu cycles are available to it.

While we are on this topic, sorry for a n00b question, but I think others would also like to know:

How do you compile under Windows?

I downloaded free trial or whatever of Visual Studio Express the other day, trying to compile whatever it was, but the software says "only for Windows Store Apps"

https://github.com/tsiv/ccminer-cryptonight

Fresh out of the oven, don't have any performance data beyond personal testing during development with my GTX 750 Ti rig. Does around 200-220 H/s per card for a 750 Ti, both stratum and http protocols supported for pool mining. Haven't actually tested solo. Compiles and runs both on Linux and Windows pretty much straight out of the box. Linux highly recommeded over Windows. Has issues with massive lag if run on a Windows primary GPU, practically renders the computer unusable due to the hashing kernel grabbing the GPU for 1-2 seconds at a time. Pretty much what happens with every other algorithm, this is just orders of magnitude worse. Looking into breaking the kernel into smaller pieces to hopefully alleviate the problem.

tsiv you rock for developing this...

Am I to understand that the miner will bog a 750Ti desktop? 

I would have to disagree with you that pretty much every other algo bogs the machine if under Windows with primary GPU, as I mine nonstop with my rig, only has 750Ti and I can do anything in windows with no lag, no slowing of the miner (cudaminer or ccminer).  Only exceptions are GPU-intensive apps like 3D gaming.

Has tsiv been paid the bounty yet?

If not, what's the hold up?

Just some facts:
No clear criteria was ever set forth, so it's not fair to setup the criteria after a open source miner has been released. Anyone is now able to fine tune this software and it's only fair that tsiv receive his bounty.  Because he did open-source it right away, I'm sure others will now jump in and help solve a couple of the problems noted.  Remember this can't happen if the source isn't available which is the whole point of this thread!

I'm sure he will continue to re-fine it anyway as this is just a first release and tsiv has already proven to the ccminer community he contributes.  He is the reason nVidia miners have X13.  Claymore has already made at least a half dozen releases to fix issues. We are in a sad state of affairs concerning open source GPU miners with Claymore having the only other GPU software with a 5% fee payable to himself (steep) that is not open source and not available on linux and only works on recent AMD cards.

I know myself I get 375 H/s with Claymore (OCed) which is 375*.95 or 356 H/s for me.  With ccminer on 750ti in (not tried to OC yet) windows (runs better under linux I'm told) I get 335 H/s with 2 750ti cards which is right on par if you figure the price of the cards together is less or equal to one 280x.  Power requirement for both 750ti cards is less then one 280x.  I've been told it runs even better on Linux which I haven't tried yet.

tsiv's release compiles and runs under both linux and windows.  It has also been directly integrated into the most popular miner for nVidia which is ccminer.  No additional standalone software needed.

So please do the right thing and pay him the bounty he deserves if this hasn't been done yet.  He HAS done everything that WAS required.

Just looking at this logically and giving my 2 cents,
Carlo

BTW for those of you in this thread who are asking about a windows compilation, here is the one I am using

         https://mega.co.nz/#!YckmgJpQ!etExS5ELpb309WwSgQcA3WaUPYVwnI4ix9UuWNLr4Yc

I have done it before, have taken C++ courses, but it was 15+ years ago.  Please enlighten me and others.

Thank you.

I am here to support tsiv to get the bounty he deserves.

I had problem running his version on Windows,  and haven't try Linux yet. But I heard others says it is working.

Claymore's miner takes 5% tax, and Chris' miner is not released yet (although I believe it is way faster), at this point, tsiv is the only one that open sourced the code and help the community.

Give him the bounty, please.

Here to support tsiv also. Miner is released/open sourced and works just fine on my rig.
True it puts windows to crawl if you mine on primary GPU, but that is no problem if one has more GPU's and should get fixed.

211h/s on a 60w gpu...you can plug 6 on a cheap h81 pro btc board, total power draw is 325w using a g3220 and 8gb of ram.
Total rig cost is less than the cost of a multi socket server rig.

1260h/s is rather good, and power efficiency is superb. It can only get better too, so yeah, well deserved bounty.

Awesome work tsiv! You have no need to worry about anyone flaking on the bounty, and it's great to see so many people come here and support your work.

I'm trying to figure out what compute capability this works for. It blows my 640 driver immediately @ 2.1 and doesn't work at all on a 240 @ 1.2. Tsiv, can you (or anyone) please make a comment/send PM please about known bugs with the software?

Meanwhile, the bounty will be collected for an open source Nvidia GPU miner.

Thanks Smiley

Tsiv should get the bounty for open source nvidia CN gpuminer. If u want to know how viable it is to mine with gpu rather than cpu, then I provide raw stats below.

rephrase: Pls don't say tsiv does not deserve bounty because his miner is not more profitable than cpu mining, that is weak excuse and an obvious ploy to avoid paying bounty.

rig1: 7x gtx750ti on asrock z87 fatality killer, 8gb ram, g3220cpu, w7 x64 - 1450h/s at 350w bronze psu (powered ribbontype risers)
rig2: 6x gtx750ti on asrock h81 btc pro, 8gb ram, g3220cpu, w7 x64 - 1340h/s at 300w bronze psu (usb type risers)

atm, Tsiv's CN miner is more cpu intensive than, say, the x11 or x13 counterparts. this is normal and expected because it is a 1st/2nd generation release, and u can expect better performance to come.

i use teamviewer so lagging desktop is not a problem for me, but Tsiv has warned about this so expect to have unuseable desktop if u use ur display gpu for mining

cheers and i wish u all, especially Tsiv, a pleasant day Smiley

Tsiv's cryptonight miner ran over night on three rigs without any problems (linux/kopiemTu).
Get him the bounty - he deservs it clearly!

btw.
one rig (6x750ti) gives me 1350h/s @325w
5 of my power efficient i7 4930k gave me 1150h/s @ 825w
a clear advantage!


sig:monero.crypto-pool.fr will be back...

if all the cryptonight pools would work that stable as tsiv's miner  Wink

He said he will try with 2.1 shader cards, but performance would be lacking probably.

lol @ miners posting here to say he needs to get the bounty.

obviously he will, there is no reason whatsoever he wont and there is nobody saying he shouldnt !

what you are doing is just cheap talk:  if you truly want to thank him, donate to him instead of making it look like the creators of the bounty are trying to keep the bounty for themselves.

Just posting my experience with this and to thank tsiv for releasing this miner for nvidia cards and what you might expect from this card.

Win 7 x64 with 8gb memory running main display from onboard video.

GTX 780 Ti (OCd +235mhz) = 290-300 hashes (Windows)
vs
I5 3570k (OCd 4.3ghz) = 160-175 hashes (Windows) or 255-265 (Linux)

For me the only setting that will work is 4x120. Anything else Ive tried crashes, even the default of 8x40. Ive tried so many different combinations. I removed the OC I had on my card and it didnt make a difference.

Linux:

I tried to get this working on linux. After working through various compile issues mostly with gcc g++ version issues I was able to compile it fine. The issue was that it would say couldn't find cuda device. I tried driver re-installs different cuda versions 5.5 & 6.0 with no luck. Made sure I had all the variable paths correct. Linux saw it and was using it, running nvidia-settings it was listed correctly showing all info. I tried it on ubuntu 14.04 x64. I might have to try again later, maybe on ubuntu 13.10?

I found tutorials to compile cudaminer on linux. I might try a tuturial for getting cudaminer compiled on linux and working first then try ccminer.

Compute 1.3 definitely won't work...

It's making windows to think the driver crashed because it's taking long enough without returning a result (windows default is 2 seconds for the GPU) and that's why windows restarts the driver and ccminer won't work and show you impossible hash rate. I made the timeout 40 seconds on my machine (tried with 10 first - it worked for some time, but then it crashed again). This made my laptop second nvidea card to start happily mining with about 22 H/s. Don't do this if you don't have a second video card, because your PC will become completely unusable while mining (if you are cpu mining on the same machine run the cpu miner before running the gpu miner, because otherwise it'll become difficult for you to even start the cpu miner). Here is a link to a .reg file, which will set the timeout to 40 seconds - just double click it and it'll add the setting to the registry (it'll ask you if you are sure). Then you should restart your windows and ccminer should work after the restart. If you find it useful don't forget to tip me Smiley https://www.dropbox.com/s/ci8b3h7oxtvd6dq/TdrDelaySetTo40.reg

Thank you for this. Going with the same OC on my 780 Ti I applied this and now I'm getting 350-360 using 6x120. I can play with the numbers a bit without crashing now. The best I've been able to do is 6x120 with higher hashrates. There is definitely a sweet spot you have to find. Hey it's better than what my i5 was doing for sure now.

I would like to comment briefly on awarding the bounty since I am responsible for the largest pledge (I think).

From what I have seen, tsiv should receive a bounty payment. I'm not sure he should receive the full amount quite yet. (Though I am also not saying he should not.)

I would like to hear public comments on the following points before reaching a conclusion.

My criteria for awarding the bounty are:

1. Quality. Is the miner 100% reliable, or does it crash or hang?

2. Compatibility. Does the miner support a full range of operating systems, hardware devices (limited to the specified family -- AMD or NV), and drivers? Hardware, operating systems, or drivers which lack some essential features for acceptable performance can be excluded, as can obviously obsolete ones.

3. Open source, maintainability. Is the code provided in a full open source manner, such that others can contribute improvements?  Is it well documented, well organized, and easy to understand?

4. Performance. Does the mine provided competitive performance (i.e. does it make sense to actually use it).

100% perfection on every one of these points is not necessary or practical -- certainly not to receive a partial bounty. These are guidelines for evaluation, not specific requirements.

If there are significant deficiencies in any or all of these areas, then the original developer should have the opportunity to address them in order to qualify for the full bounty. Failing that, others may contribute improvements to claim part of the bounty.

I would like to hear substantive comments from any stakeholders or community members addressing these points.

I would like to hear substantive comments from any stakeholders or community members addressing these points.


Here are my own experiences using Tsiv's ccminer revision (with CN algo support). For reference, I mine using 17 GPUs, all of them gtx750ti of 3 kinds: 1x MSI tf oc gaming, 10x Zotac dual-fan oc, 6x Zotac single-fan oc.

1. Definitely no crashing or hanging in my experience. Since crashing can be a result of overclocking and improper settings, I share mine in hopes to avoid 'crashing' as an obstacle to Tsiv's bounty: I have clocks set via msi afterburner on all 3 rigs / 17 gpus, and use +140 / +317 / 95% power. My os are all w7 x64, 8gb ram or higher.

2. I can only personally attest to w7 x64 os. I have read (in the cudaminer thread on this forum site) that S_tring has made it possible to mine in w8 by specifying switches (-l 6x40) follow this link: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=167229.msg7529384#msg7529384
This leaves Linux based OS, OSX (if anybody mines using that os, I just dont know), and older versions of windows.
As for hardware devices, I have strong opinions on this one: the Tsiv miner is intended for Nvidia, and in my opinion the only real nvidia gpu worthy of being used for mining is the GTX 750ti (until more maxwell GPUs come out that are comparable or superior in terms of hash/cost and hash/watt. This said, the newer nvidia gpus do seem to be supported. And I can see a scenario such as this: ask forum members to chime in re compatibility with their specific nvidia GPUs; ask Tsiv to modify his miner to support the missing ones (just the major ones, of course).

3. I am not a coder, so I can't answer this one. I just know some basics that giv me impression in the affirmative: [.a.] the code is essentially a fork of CBuchner & ChrisH's ccminer; [.b.] it is (has been) on github for a long time with many revisions, contributions

4. I get 210-220h/s per gpu x 17gpus = 3.5 kh/s average (conservative), and total wattage of 920w (an over estimate). As the miner app gets revised, expect that it will get more power hungry in order to deliver more hashes. In my experience, the current miner from other algos require 10-15% more power from my rigs, whereas previously, they consume around the same wattage as Tsiv's miner, and delivered around 20-25% less hashes.

To be fair, I believe Tsiv already deserves a substantial portion of the bounty. However it is also practical to withhold a small portion of the bounty for some things people may have overlooked. In the interest of fairness, may I suggest think of it as a warranty period -- if no problems arise in the next 14 days (a lifetime in cryptoland), then Tsiv gets awarded the balance of the bounty.

I'm offering the 150 xmr pledge by Keyboard-Mash in the OP.


My criteria for awarding the bounty are:

1. Quality. Is the miner 100% reliable, or does it crash or hang?

I have since been able to test it on my little gt 640 thanks to the contribution of the registry file from equipoise, for windows. Before that it blew my drivers immediately. I ran the program successfully for just over 5 hours after that modification, at a rate of 8 whopping hashes/s (it tops out at 32 h/s but I wanted to be able to have better use of the computer. Program did not crash or hang for that time. Address I mined to @ mro.poolto.be =
Code:
45CrXb3EdweAHhH7yGwGZRWNwNHGtmoHYBv1rjASbvWHF5xCfhUTb6VggcQwshsAC8K2kssLR8X4NUBhyp8eBptCKcwFNEn

Quote
2. Compatibility. Does the miner support a full range of operating systems, hardware devices (limited to the specified family -- AMD or NV), and drivers? Hardware, operating systems, or drivers which lack some essential features for acceptable performance can be excluded, as can obviously obsolete ones.

Still testing on multiple OS's, but can confirm does work w/ windows 7 64 bit, and vista 64 bit. I won't be able to test it further than that until after next week, as I will be away from my equipment until then .. but I see that other people have used many OS's and would like to hear from them. I've now seen support down to compute 2.1 levels, using whatever driver was newest/not beta

Quote
4. Performance. Does the miner provide competitive performance (i.e. does it make sense to actually use it).

I can buy a 640 for about the same cost as a haswell pentium (~the same cost if buying on ebay). Both top out around 30 h/s. It seems to be competitive from my situation, and would make sense to mine with the card if I wanted to mine. Have not measured power consumption .. but I don't think anyone in my situation would be overly concerned with that

Overall I'm very satisfied with the program, and would gladly release partial/full bounty .. pending a quick answer for why I had to edit the registry to get the program to operate. Equipoise I will send you a few xmr outside of the bounty, thanks a lot for providing it! I would like to hear some more from tsiv.

Thanks Smiley

Running this miner for 24h without troubles on my linux dedicated rig, 12x750ti running @198H/s each.
No troubles, no crash. He deserve this bounty as the first really good Nvidia CryptoNight miner Smiley
Current estimation is 12.5$/day for me, It's in the top 3 of rentability right now if I check what I use to mine.

There is something more to be done about the -l MxN.
About the first number M:
"First of all, your thread block size should always be a multiple of 32, because kernels issue instructions in warps (32 threads). For example, if you have a block size of 50 threads, the GPU will still issue commands to 64 threads and you'd just be wasting them."
About the second number N:
You could find it by gradually increasing it until your card stop working (showing impossible hash rate 3474958.52 H/s) and then restart is needed for maximum performance (but not for testing), because without restart my hash rate is felling 2x compared to the same options before the crash.

The "magical numbers" for 650M seems to be -l 128x5

How fast does it work compared to CPU mining? cost efficiency wise?

If you take into account the actual power draw of a 750ti that doesn't require a PCIe connector from the PSU, then it draws ~70W @ full load.

The average power draw of a CPU @ 4.0GHz (suitable for cryptonight mining) is around 150+W.


Now... cost-wise... upgrade CPU/MB... ~$400+. ~200 H/s... total.
Power Consumption: 100+W


Buy 2 750ti cards... ~$300   ~205-210 H/s EACH
Power Consumption: ~140W


My Xeon X3460 @ 4.0GHz is drawing around 140W at full load right now, and I'm only getting ~180 H/s out of it.

I'm going to get a couple of 750ti cards, and then I'm going to say deuces to the 7870 cards (and toss them into my gaming rig, with twin Kraken G10 setups. Tongue)

Performance per watt for a 750ti - 3 H/s per Watt
Performance per watt for my Xeon - 1.29 H/s per Watt
Performance per watt for a 290X - 1.97 H/s per Watt

So... all in all... I'd rather have 3 H81 Pro BTC rigs running low watt CPU's and 6 750ti cards each.

I might mine a little slower than most... but I'd still be raking it in compared to my power consumption.

I was finally able to get it working on ubuntu 14.04. I just followed the tutorial below to setup cudaminer then compiled ccminer and it works great now.

Here is the tutorial I found incase anyone else has trouble.
http://d3adbra1n.wordpress.com/2014/05/03/cuda-miner-installation-on-a-fresh-ubuntu-14-04-lts/

I'm still getting the fastest hashes using smaller thread count over many blocks vs more threads over lower block count. It's been very stable tho with no crashing at all as it hashes away.

I promised a bounty for the Nvidia miner even though all my Nvidia cards are in the cupboard  Grin
Post a BTC donation address tsiv so I can send my share (0.2BTC as listed)

Any chance somebody tried the Gtx580 or Gtx680 I have 2 of each which I might slap on a system if worthwhile

I added some donation addresses on the project readme on Github for wallets that I have atm, copy&paste:

BTC: 1JHDKp59t1RhHFXsTw2UQpR3F9BBz3R3cs
DRK: XrHp267JNTVdw5P3dsBpqYfgTpWnzoESPQ

I'm offering the 150 xmr pledge by Keyboard-Mash in the OP.

Overall I'm very satisfied with the program, and would gladly release partial/full bounty .. pending a quick answer for why I had to edit the registry to get the program to operate. Equipoise I will send you a few xmr outside of the bounty, thanks a lot for providing it! I would like to hear some more from tsiv.

It is actually explained on the project's front page on Github, I believe Smiley

The initial release had the entire algorithm stuffed into a single huge CUDA kernel. Having to do the whole slow algorithm in one go had a tendency to take just a bit over 2 seconds per kernel launch, with 2 seconds being the timeout for Windows getting impatient and going "hmmh, I haven't heard from the GPU in 2 seconds. Must've crashed, better reset the driver." The registry tweak works around the problem by increasing the time that Windows allows the GPU to be "unresponsive" aka stuck running a CUDA kernel.

This has been addressed in later releases, mainly by splitting the single huge kernel into smaller pieces and making parts of the hash faster. The slowest part is still quite slow, taking roughly 1.4 seconds with launch config 8x60 on a 750 Ti but it should stay well within the default 2 second window.

There is something more to be done about the -l MxN.
About the first number M:
"First of all, your thread block size should always be a multiple of 32, because kernels issue instructions in warps (32 threads). For example, if you have a block size of 50 threads, the GPU will still issue commands to 64 threads and you'd just be wasting them."
About the second number N:
You could find it by gradually increasing it until your card stop working (showing impossible hash rate 3474958.52 H/s) and then restart is needed for maximum performance (but not for testing), because without restart my hash rate is felling 2x compared to the same options before the crash.

The "magical numbers" for 650M seems to be -l 128x5

I realize the 8x60 or 8x40 make absolutely no sense, they're something I ran into while trying out different values. The reasonable values would be based on the number of SMM/SMX on the GPU and 32 or 64 threads per block would make a lot of sense. I can't tell exactly why performance takes a dive if you try 64x5 for example, it should be a very good value to start at. Might have something to do with the huge amount of random global memory access in the second major loop of the algo, trying to do more work in parallel bottlenecks at the memory access?

Good news is that I've since modified 2 of the 3 main loops to use 8 parallel threads per hash as opposed to the original 1 thread per hash. So essentially 8x60 leads to running 64 threads per block for those two loops. Still working on the last loops, it does seem a fair bit harder to make it more parallel.

I'm trying to use the pre-compiled ccminer-cryptonight_20140630_r2 ccminer on Windows 8.1 with a GTX750ti and seem to be having some problems getting results.

I am pointing the miner at minexmr as indicated on their website:
http://minexmr.com/
with a batch file as follows:
C:\monero\ccminer-cryptonight_20140630_r2\ccminer.exe -t 1 -d gtx750ti -o stratum+tcp://pool.minexmr.com:7777 -u <address> -p x

At launch, I get a series of results like:
GPU #0: GeForce GTX 750 Ti, using 40 blocks of 8 threads
Pool set diff to 15000
GPU #0: GeForce GTX 750 Ti, 93.81 H/s
then a popup says display driver stopped responding and has recovered. After that I see results with crazy high numbers of hashes like this:
GPU #0: GeForce GTX 750 Ti, 163611988.12 H/s
interspersed with
'stratum detected new block'
but no accepted results within a half hour check period.

I also tried downloading the previous release, but switching to that one makes the cmd.exe pop up and vanish immediately on my system (Windows 8.1, Driver 337.88). The GTX750ti is not attached to a display output.

Any help appreciated. Not sure what's going wrong.

Any help appreciated. Not sure what's going wrong.

Pretty sure it's still a TDR issue, the biggest part of the cryptonight core get still run as a single launch and it just might take that 2 seconds and Windows with default TDR delay considers the GPU stuck and does a driver reset. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=656841.msg7529269#msg7529269 for a workaround. I plan on looking at splitting the work down, at quick glance it looks like it could be run piece by piece. Will probably hurt performance a bit, have to save and reload the encryption keys on every kernel launch and launches themselves have some overhead. My thought was to make it a cmd line option, allowing the user to decide how much (or if) they want to split it up. Maybe add a few microseconds of sleep between the launches, stop the display freezing for 1+ seconds at a time and make the computer at least semi-usable.

I tried the TDR delay reg edit on my rig, and it now seems to be running stably at 45-50 H/s (40*Cool, 750 ti, diff 15000. I just got my first accepted after about 10 mins so it seems to be working, thanks. Is the hash rate a bit low though?

What do you have in your command line for the "-l" parameter?

If you don't specify the parameter it should be 8x40 by default. The 750 Ti should be hashing in the 200's I believe.

Is there a pre-existing XMR bounty wallet for the ATI miner?

If not, perhaps HardwarePal could make one, publish the view key?  I don't want to hold it, just send to it.

I think smooth was collecting, but if HardwarePal is hiring someone directly then that would probably be okay, so long as the view key is published. Maybe we should check with smooth to see if he's collected anything? It doesn't seem like anyones working on this bounty besides HardwarePal, so my part of the ATI bounty still stands to be claimed by what's being worked on (150 XMR - Keyboard-Mash), and it looks like Tsiv will be claiming the Nvidia miner bounty. Tsiv can you please provide an XMR address and viewkey here?

Due to all the talk about Claymores Closed Source 5% Gpu Miner, I have paid Wolf to release his OpenCL for the Gpu miner on github and have some of the opensource community contribute and himself aswell.

The initial idea was to pay him 10BTC to do the project and release a working miner. I have changed plans due to Wolf being tired + pool owners wanting to cut Claymores 5% which could cause other bigger problems.

I paid him a total of 3BTC to release the code. He will be updating on the main Monero thread in a few hours.

It's making windows to think the driver crashed because it's taking long enough without returning a result (windows default is 2 seconds for the GPU) and that's why windows restarts the driver and ccminer won't work and show you impossible hash rate. I made the timeout 40 seconds on my machine (tried with 10 first - it worked for some time, but then it crashed again). This made my laptop second nvidea card to start happily mining with about 22 H/s. Don't do this if you don't have a second video card, because your PC will become completely unusable while mining (if you are cpu mining on the same machine run the cpu miner before running the gpu miner, because otherwise it'll become difficult for you to even start the cpu miner). Here is a link to a .reg file, which will set the timeout to 40 seconds - just double click it and it'll add the setting to the registry (it'll ask you if you are sure). Then you should restart your windows and ccminer should work after the restart. If you find it useful don't forget to tip me Smiley https://www.dropbox.com/s/ci8b3h7oxtvd6dq/TdrDelaySetTo40.reg

There is something more to be done about the -l MxN.
About the first number M:
"First of all, your thread block size should always be a multiple of 32, because kernels issue instructions in warps (32 threads). For example, if you have a block size of 50 threads, the GPU will still issue commands to 64 threads and you'd just be wasting them."
About the second number N:
You could find it by gradually increasing it until your card stop working (showing impossible hash rate 3474958.52 H/s) and then restart is needed for maximum performance (but not for testing), because without restart my hash rate is felling 2x compared to the same options before the crash.

The "magical numbers" for 650M seems to be -l 128x5

Due to all the talk about Claymores Closed Source 5% Gpu Miner, I have paid Wolf to release his OpenCL for the Gpu miner on github and have some of the opensource community contribute and himself aswell.
The initial idea was to pay him 10BTC to do the project and release a working miner. I have changed plans due to Wolf being tired + pool owners wanting to cut Claymores 5% which could cause other bigger problems.
I paid him a total of 3BTC to release the code. He will be updating on the main Monero thread in a few hours.

Oh it's you Africanos lol ?

Let's do this miner !

I tried the TDR delay reg edit on my rig, and it now seems to be running stably at 45-50 H/s (40*Cool, 750 ti, diff 15000. I just got my first accepted after about 10 mins so it seems to be working, thanks. Is the hash rate a bit low though?

What do you have in your command line for the "-l" parameter?

If you don't specify the parameter it should be 8x40 by default. The 750 Ti should be hashing in the 200's I believe.

No command line "-l". Default 40x8. Tried 80x8 and 40x16, but they were worse. Surely Windows can't be nerfing the GPU so badly?

I can't run tsiv's ccminer under win8.1.Driver crash everytime I start ccminer.Any solution?

The NVIDIA drivers will "time out" and give you a crash message. This is Windows basically detecting that the drivers haven't responded properly for a while, and so it stops them and of course your mining quits as well. You can usually get around this via a registry edit, but in some cases even that may not work all the time so be prepared to fiddle around a bit. The registry hack is easy enough:

    Run "regedit.exe" from the Start Menu.
    Navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers"
    Right-click on the right panel and create a new 32-bit DWORD value.
    Name the key "TdrDelay" and assign it a value of anywhere from 10 to 30 (decimal -- 0A to 1E hex).
    Reboot and you should be set.

Update. I read a post here:
http://www.holynerdvana.com/2014/07/mining-cryptonote-coins-with-nvidia.html
and started playing around with the -l switch. On Windows 8.1 this makes a massive difference. With 750 ti, switching to -l 8x32 boosts performance to the expected 200+ H/s. Night and day difference. Other settings may improve that further, but that's a reasonable starter for 8.1 miners.
Edit: best combo so far found: -l 8x30 for 260 H/s.

Amazing spot pricing on AWS g2 instances right now, $0.077/hr.  I think one is good for about 200hps with tsiv.

Give a man a fish and he eats for a day.  Give a man a Poisson distribution and he eats at random times independent of one another, at a constant known rate.

Is there a pre-existing XMR bounty wallet for the ATI miner?

If not, perhaps HardwarePal could make one, publish the view key?  I don't want to hold it, just send to it.

I think smooth was collecting, but if HardwarePal is hiring someone directly then that would probably be okay, so long as the view key is published. Maybe we should check with smooth to see if he's collected anything? It doesn't seem like anyones working on this bounty besides HardwarePal, so my part of the ATI bounty still stands to be claimed by what's being worked on (150 XMR - Keyboard-Mash), and it looks like Tsiv will be claiming the Nvidia miner bounty. Tsiv can you please provide an XMR address and viewkey here?


I have a an XMR address up on the Github project  page, no viewkey though. If you need one I guess I can always create a new wallet for it, seeing as I can't figure out how to get the viewkey for an existing wallet. Apparently it is only shown once on wallet creation and if you ignored it (I did, didn't even know such a thing existed) you're out of luck? Another curve ball by the XMR wallet, they just keep coming Smiley

I promised a bounty for the Nvidia miner even though all my Nvidia cards are in the cupboard  Grin
Post a BTC donation address tsiv so I can send my share (0.2BTC as listed)

Any chance somebody tried the Gtx580 or Gtx680 I have 2 of each which I might slap on a system if worthwhile
Tsiv donations and updates

Sent my promised 0.2BTC now  (0.20133330 to be exact)

Thaaank you, sir, received and much appreciated.

And a crosspost from the CudaMiner/ccMiner thread:

Aaand I'm back. Had to focus a bit on shit I've been neglecting lately, including but not limited to my actual job and sleep  Grin

Say bye to (most of) the lag on Windows if you're willing to take a slight hit in performance. Basically I'm now splitting the heaviest part of the Cryptonight core into smaller batches with a little sleep between launching the batches. The default is still no splitting and no sleeping on Linux, on Windows it gets split into 64 batches with 100 microseconds sleep between the batches. Both values can be set on the command line per-device. I'm running it as I type this and while there is still noticeable lag, it's not too bad. The performance hit is pretty negligible on the defaults, something like 5 H/s. Well, on my system anyway.

Latest win32 binary at https://github.com/tsiv/ccminer-cryptonight/releases/tag/v0.14 and source at https://github.com/tsiv/ccminer-cryptonight as you might expect.

I did not collect anything for this bounty. I collected for the pool bounty (already awarded) and GUI bounty (not yet awarded).

I did personally pledge toward both the ATI and nv bounties. As far as I'm concerned tsiv has earned the nv bounty and it should be paid once someone steps forward to manage the process (I can do it but not for the next week or so) or unless someone has a counterargument.

Where exactly is an official thread with detail and setup/manual etc. for a GUI miner? Also shouldn't the miner work on all NV cards?  Huh

All cards? I'd say no. A good range if widely available cards is good enough.

As for the official thread with instructions etc. good question.

if(!(i & 7))
{
temp = (temp >> 8) | (temp << 24);
temp2 = (uint8_t *)&temp;

temp2[0] = SharedSBox[temp2[0]];
temp2[1] = SharedSBox[temp2[1]];
temp2[2] = SharedSBox[temp2[2]];
temp2[3] = SharedSBox[temp2[3]];
temp2[0] ^= rcon[i >> 3];
}
else if((i & 7) == 4)
{
temp2 = (uint8_t *)&temp;
temp2[0] = SharedSBox[temp2[0]];
temp2[1] = SharedSBox[temp2[1]];
temp2[2] = SharedSBox[temp2[2]];
temp2[3] = SharedSBox[temp2[3]];
}

Key[i] = Key[i - 8] ^ temp;
}
}

No ouch slow divides or modulus operations or useless memset calls. Uses an SBox in shared memory, but it can easily be modified to use one on the device (which is actually how I had it earlier, that's what the unused d_sbox is for). Also, no unconditionally executed inner loop, either - if you have a dword to XOR, then XOR a dword, not 4 bytes one at a time. Also makes use of restricted pointers, not sure if they help, but hey, it might, and I may as well since I don't alias any of those pointers. Also, IMO, it's one hell of a lot more readable.

I'm planning to go ahead and send my 300 XMR pledge to tsiv for his nv miner. If anyone has any reason why I should not do this (for example, critical pieces of code or documentation are incomplete or missing) then please speak up now. I haven't been following the development that closely so I don't know the details beyond that he seems to have delivered a genuinely useful miner.

There's no critical piece of code or docs missing as far as I know - I think there's a bug making it impossible to use all of your GPU's memory, though, or even over half of it.

I am starting to take a serious look at this algo but that cannot happen until the playing field is level.

If the guy who made the miner kept it a secret and just mined , like other things with other coins have gone down in the past he would have been better off but he wants a piece of everyone's action.

Developers deserve compensation for thier work , but equal to what they develop.

The rest is for the community.

I would urge those who have gpu miners to make the code open source for the good of all.

I think the fame you will get and respect and potential for future work will far outweigh your current strategy.

Please consider this.

95% of the community doesn't do shit for you when you release a 2x faster miner. They take their profit and forget about you, almost as if they'd rather be mining at half speed.

I have worked on CryptoNight ATI sgminer based on sph-sgminer.

I have already lost more then one week for this full-time job  Embarrassed , but currently I don't have time for this project.  Undecided

Here is repo: https://github.com/Atrides/sgminer-monero

What is done: all except of right cryptonight.cl

Miner works currently via RPCv1, available on test-port 8001 on erebor.dwarfpool.com
I have integrated djm's cpu-miner to compare hash, so, debuggers can see it in logs as "DIFFERENT_HASH" if OpenCL gives wrong hash.

In "cryptonight.cl_withaes_noworking" I have added AES implementation from djm. But with some errors.
"cryptonight.cl" == "cryptonight.cl_withkeccak_noaes" does not have AES therefore bad hashes.

So, if anybody can check and make normal "cryptonight.cl", you can use test port 8001.

How?  It's absurdly expensive, and at first (naive) testing, appears to be similar to the 750ti, plus or minus a bit.  Ok, you save pci-e slots.  That's good.  But the ratios of hash vs power draw are nothing new.. now maybe that changes as developers start really optimizing for the cards.. but I don't think we're going to see massive improvement when the first pass was basically this good.

Maybe there are new silicon features that can be exploited, though..

No matter what settings i try the card is barely warm with 60c and 30% cooler. Its not used to full. Hash is 530 with 8x128 (best ive gotten)
Tsiv, any ideas? It should get at least 3x 750ti perf @1000hash

i guess this is not good news then. how hot does your card get under which temperature and how much video ram is being used?

i know that mine wasn't being used to the full (card being barely warm with fan at 30%), so there's definitely some optimizations to make on the miner side.

I found why the GPU shows such bad performance (one of the reasons).
When running 3D games it enters P0 state (highest performance), when running Miners (CCMiner) it enters P2 state only. Specifically, the core goes to P0 but memory stays at P2, which means the memory never goes past 3000Mhz (6Ghz effective). So you're stuck with +-500hash.

Here's how to fix this:

1. download NVIDIA Inspector 1.9.7.3
2. click overcloicking
3. choose Performance Level[2] - (P2)
4. Click top right corner - Unlock Max
5. Move memory slider to 4000Mhz to start with (stable for me!)
6. Run your normal MSI Afterburner / Precision X and set your OC clocks for CORE
7. Run ccminer and enjoy your new kickass hash... well not really kickass, but I'm getting +-625 hash now. Power usage in MSI afterburner howers between 66-67%, so knowing TDP of 160W the card uses around 105-110W / 625 Hash! Bingo.

You welcome

P.S. This is for the GTX 980 obviously
P.P.S. For whomever is interested - this also makes the card get 7600 Khash in X11 mining without any CCminer tweaks, just 1500core /8000mem settings and +0.075volt

you probably have to modify some stuff using the autoconfig something or other. its probably in the readme file in that folder.

hi all ...

is there a list of pools that have cryptonight algo mining? ...

even if it there are different pools with different coins ...

I found why the GPU shows such bad performance (one of the reasons).
When running 3D games it enters P0 state (highest performance), when running Miners (CCMiner) it enters P2 state only. Specifically, the core goes to P0 but memory stays at P2, which means the memory never goes past 3000Mhz (6Ghz effective). So you're stuck with +-500hash.

Here's how to fix this:

1. download NVIDIA Inspector 1.9.7.3
2. click overcloicking
3. choose Performance Level[2] - (P2)
4. Click top right corner - Unlock Max
5. Move memory slider to 4000Mhz to start with (stable for me!)
6. Run your normal MSI Afterburner / Precision X and set your OC clocks for CORE
7. Run ccminer and enjoy your new kickass hash... well not really kickass, but I'm getting +-625 hash now. Power usage in MSI afterburner howers between 66-67%, so knowing TDP of 160W the card uses around 105-110W / 625 Hash! Bingo.

You welcome

P.S. This is for the GTX 980 obviously
P.P.S. For whomever is interested - this also makes the card get 7600 Khash in X11 mining without any CCminer tweaks, just 1500core /8000mem settings and +0.075volt

I am not getting these results.
running nVidia brand geforce gtx-980
-l 8x112
I tried using Nvidia Inspector and went to Performance Level 2>Unlock Max> move slider to 4000 but when I [Apply Clocks and Voltage] it just auto drops down to default settings... I was able to slowly increase at +20 intervals all the way to 3545 but thats it
also I am running Precisionx with GPU Clock @ +290 (approx 1540Mhz) and Mem Clock at +433

I am bouncing all over the place with my H/s 515 to 178 but mostly in the 430 range

My pledge is still good. I can't speak for the others and no funds have been collected so it is up to them.

So is mine for 150 xmr, even though I had withdrawn it previously.

what exactly are these settings.

-l, --launch=CONFIG   launch config for the Cryptonight kernel.
                       a comma separated list of values in form of
                       AxB where A is the number of threads to run in
                       each thread block and B is the number of thread
                       blocks to launch. If less values than devices in use
                       are provided, the last value will be used for
                       the remaining devices. If you don't need to vary the
                       value between devices, you can just enter a single
             value and it will be used for all devices.

-f, --diff            Divide difficulty by this factor (std is 1)

I am running an nVIDIA gtx 980
 
looking at the -l I set mine to 8x64 -  I need to set the B value to a whole number divisible by 16 (smx count of 16 for this card)

I have tried 8x128 and I get larger +520h/s but very inconsistent... it will jump all over one will be 540 the next will be 128 ... average it out over a length of time and I would get approx 300+h/s average over 12 hours.


I have tried other combos all with a B value divisible by 16.  and 8x64 gives me about 430h/s average over 12 hours.

What is the -f for exactly i leave it alone for lack of knowing what the point of this setting is.



Here is why I ask..  If I run https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=770064.0 and mine X11 algo for Dash.. I get approx 12,000 kh/s average. (setting intensity to 21 and maxing my GPU to approx 1550MHz )   -  my GPU Temp Climbs up and I have it holding at 80C


When I run Cryptonight Algo for XMR on tsiv ccminer I am getting a fair h/s (430 avg) but it does not seem like my GPU is really working that hard..
It does not seem to help or hinder it to overclock the GPU also my temperature never even gets  above 55C - Fans hardly run at all

what am I doing wrong with my settings.. ( besides trying to mine Monero in the first place)

Expecting CryptoNight to run your GPU hard is what you're doing wrong.

EDIT: Do NOT use -f. It will fuck your share diff calculation.

well I guess that is the case... its just not hard on my GPU...

I am looking for a coin to mine that i can make some cash on .. I have two 980 cards and one 970 and I am finding that monero or even bytecoin makes more money per day than dash or quark

I am not looking to break the bank.. but I have these cards at my disposal and never turn off my computers at work anyway.. so might as well make some money on the side.

get your hands on sp's ccminer fork - and mine quark on nicehash / westhash or yaamp ...

seriously - it is one of the highest paying algos at the moment - and those cards will hammer pretty hard ...

here ...

1.5.45(sp-MOD) is available here: (18-april-2015)

https://github.com/sp-hash/ccminer/releases/tag/1.5.45

The sourcecode is available here:

https://github.com/sp-hash/ccminer

hope this works out for you ...

I tried one of the cards on quark @ coinmine.pl
running for 10 minutes and already #1 in statistics... lol
but still the math is not there... according to the statistics.. it will only generate .0003 btc per day
thats about 6 cents

same card running XMR will get approx .0015 btc or .36 cents..

am I at the wrong pool ?

actually did try this this weekend ran  on x11/Dash at miningpoolhub and I think it was about the same 7 cents for 24 hours on one of the cards (after conversion and fees and donations ) was getting 10,000 to 12,000 kh/s

we run on westhash ( or nicehash - but westhash is the closer server to us ) or yaamp ...

currently on westhash running - https://www.westhash.com/?p=miners&a=12&addr=15umzHXF8NzXA4FywmeFbrDHgL8WcPs3wx - if you want to have a look so far ...

3/4 of the farm running nvidia mining quark ( sp ccminer ) and the 1/4 amd x11 mining elsewhere ( using wolf's bins ) ...

im not too sure how you would individually cost this - but each card is running at approx 5450KH ...

we dont look at the pricing so much - just the hashrates - as pricing fluctuates way too much ( and you make lots of btc or a little - but you ALWAYS make btc ) - whereas the hashrate is all about maximizing it for the mining experience thus maximizing the coin production ...

we found that using ccminer ( private cryptonight miner code from sp AND tsiv ) runs really well - but does not seem to be as productive in the long term ( this test run was doen quite a while back when tsiv and sp released their miners ) ...

this is why we reverted back to x11 mainly ( and because 'our' coin is x11 based - granitecoin ) ...

im not sure how long you have been mining for - but you will find due to the price fluctuations - at any given moment in time ANY algo from ANY of those lists CAN be the most productive ...

so when your comparison of xmr and 'others' right this minute may be true - it may not be in future ... as was the case for us ...

due to this - we went with what we knew originally - x11 - and made the best of it while we could ... mining various coins and trading accordingly ... except for these last few days due to the quark testing on westhash Wink ...

I notice a couple problems... One the Geforce 8800 Gt has 512Mb of memory so to start we need to adjust your hash per thread ratio. the default count of 8x40 is 640Mb worth so lets lower it to a number your card likes..
Also the SMX factor is 14 for that card, so I think your second number has to be divisible by 14

add -l 7x28 to your startup batch file or configuration. (that is a small L not a number 1 or a letter i )

Another problem or oversight.. not sure which...  your address is incorrect.. if you want to mine QCN you need to go to port 45570 not 45550

also just go ahead and omit the -a cryptonight since it is redundant if you are using the cryptonight only miner software


example: ccminer -l 7x28 -o stratum+tcp://qcn.pool.minergate.com:45570 -u yourmail.address.com -p x

I hope this helps

Putting together a bounty again for open source mining software.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=653467.700;topicseen

GingerAle: 200
Jwinterm: 35
Chocolatebar: 2000
owlcatz: some yet to be determined amount
Lloydmiller4: 500 - 1000

The full bounty is for 2X hashrate increase on existing hardware. Proportional bounties can be obtained for successive increases in hashrate. So, 10% increase in hashrate gets 10% of the bounty.

Discussion about the bounty will now occur on this thread. I need to dig through and see who still has active bounties up from this thread.

crap, need to find a better SHA256 website or something. My quick googling lead me to crap apparently, because im getting different hashes from different websites. Some remove whitespace or line breaks or something. Anyone got a good one? Overkill. But fun!

According to the OP, these bounties were pledged for an open sourced AMD miner

-Keyboard-Mash: 150 XMR
-HardwarePal: 1 BTC
-Smooth: 300 XMR
-othe: 50 XMR

according to
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=656841.msg11079019#msg11079019

Smooth's 300 is still active

G2M put up one for 150

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=656841.msg11079351#msg11079351


So total recent monero put up for SOME kind of bounty.

*Smooth: 300
*G2M: 150
GingerAle: 200
Jwinterm: 35
Chocolatebar: 2000
owlcatz: 200

though the asterisked ones were for the original open source AMD bounty, not necessarily a miner with 2X hashrate.

So 3885 is the total up for something. Anything. To happen in this space.

My private cryptonight kernal is around 10% faster on windows(windows executable). It can be yours for a 0.2 BTC donation. Then you also get my private spreadcoin miner with sourcecode (linux compatible).. (8.75-10% faster)

smooth, how about any open source miner that increases hashrate?

I'd give a little to a significant open source boost to the hash rate of nv but supporting the other major platform at all seems more significant to me.

Equal to Claymore's probably isn't an easy feat... if you lowered the threshold a bit, you might find some takers.

Hello All. I am ready to pay 2 BTC (1000 XMR) for open sourced AMD miner with equal to Claymore CryptoNote GPU Miner v9.3 performance.

Equal to Claymore's probably isn't an easy feat... if you lowered the threshold a bit, you might find some takers.

or increased the bounty? ...

Smiley ...

#crysx

This works, too. Tongue

Personally, I'd be a little more inclined to work on a somewhat easier bounty for somewhat less coin.

Something worth noting, even if you happened to have a equivalent hashrate to Claymore, it still wouldn't be worth mining compared to Neo, Quark, or x11. This is purely for securing the network against botminers unless I'm mistaken. For those of you that care about such things.

I buy private Nvidia miners. Send information and/or inquiries to my PM box.

But if monero price will rise, open sourced nvidia and amd software (with good performance) will be big plus for miners, which can switch from "Neo, Quark, or x11" to mining monero with its hardware (just compile and run or use compiled version). And it will result in overall network hasrate and monero security. Some miners don't use Proprietary soft for some reasons. I think it's better to have open sourced AMD miner than not to have.

https://github.com/tsiv/ccminer-cryptonight

Fresh out of the oven, don't have any performance data beyond personal testing during development with my GTX 750 Ti rig. Does around 200-220 H/s per card for a 750 Ti, both stratum and http protocols supported for pool mining. Haven't actually tested solo. Compiles and runs both on Linux and Windows pretty much straight out of the box. Linux highly recommeded over Windows. Has issues with massive lag if run on a Windows primary GPU, practically renders the computer unusable due to the hashing kernel grabbing the GPU for 1-2 seconds at a time. Pretty much what happens with every other algorithm, this is just orders of magnitude worse. Looking into breaking the kernel into smaller pieces to hopefully alleviate the problem.

tsiv you rock for developing this...

Am I to understand that the miner will bog a 750Ti desktop? 

I would have to disagree with you that pretty much every other algo bogs the machine if under Windows with primary GPU, as I mine nonstop with my rig, only has 750Ti and I can do anything in windows with no lag, no slowing of the miner (cudaminer or ccminer).  Only exceptions are GPU-intensive apps like 3D gaming.
I don't know if you fixed your problem yet. I have the same setup however in your windows task manager , right click on the ccminer.exe file and wallets to. go to affinity and change from all cpu's to using just one. right click again on ccminer.exe file and select set priority to below normal.

Okay, so I found a developer willing to work on new open source Nvidia mining software - djm34. His background can be seen here:

https://github.com/djm34

So the goal of the bounty is as follows:

Open source Nvidia mining software that performs better than Tsivs existing software. For the record, here's a screenshot by _sp



Granted, these hashrates are for _sp's modified kernals.

djm34 apparently fiddled with tsivs code a little bit and got these numbers:

260H/s 750ti
400H/s 780ti
560H/s 980

The 750 ti usually gets 250 h/s without _sp's mod. If anyone has any other hashrates to post for comparison (780ti and 980), please take screenshots.


--- The financials ----

So, as all Monerians should know by now, the Core team has created the forum funding system, which is an attempt to move away from the conventional bounty system. The primary benefit of this system is the developer can set any milestone and timeline for payouts, and then the funders basically agree or disagree based on whether or not they fund something.

djm34 really wants an advance for his work, and this advance is not compatible with the forum funding system. I tried to convince him that a milestone payment for evidence of effort was equivalent to an advance (except that it was held in escrow by fluffypony), but apparently advances are "industry standard".

Advance: "1000 - 1500 xmr"
Total: 5000 XMR

So, as it stands, we would have to send 1k - 1.5k xmr to djm for him to start to work on the problem. After completion of the task, he would get the remaining bounty.

If anyone is willing to provide this advance, please post.

He said he could complete the task in 3 weeks, and that he didn't want to make any promises, but thinks he can get the cards on par with the AMD counterpart.

so, all details


Advance: "1000 - 1500 xmr"
Total: 5000 XMR
Timeline 3 weeks
Goal nvidia on par with amd counterpart (so around 800 h/s on a 980ti i guess)
Final products open source code on github and compiled binaries for windows and linux


Additional goals (not discussed yet) could be scaleability (the code could work on any future card, at least a maxwell card) and increased usability (getting tsivs to work in linux requires much patience). But these could be pie in the sky for all I know.

I am going to pitch this task for him on the forum funding system, with the "evidence of effort" milestone in place of the advance.

If anyone wants to pony up the advance here, that will work as well.

The rest of the bounty will be done on the forum funding system.

Also, if Wolf0 could chime in here, I think that would really help djm34's case for the advance.

I'll admit to be not that familiar with the funding system, but I don't get how an advance would be not compatible. Can't the first milestone just be something like "statement of readiness to start work"?

Of course it is up to funders whether that is acceptable, which is a different matter.

true, that would work.

Okay, with the help of chocolatebar, palaxender, and myagui, these milestones are the current working set:

Primary Milestones:
1) Overall software architecture (1000-1500 XMR):

A) Open source software that is nice, clean, well written and documented code that will be easy to maintain and work on; a pleasure for others to jump in and contribute going forward.

B) Cross-platform compatible. e.g. works on apple, linux, microsoft. Binaries available for all platforms when code is released.

C) Parameters can be completely tuned. The software should be designed so that miners can change every value with a config file to tweak settings for their particular hardware. This will possible extend the useful life of the software.

D) Limited dependencies for compiling, and required dependencies must be available via package managers. 100 xmr will be deducted for each dependency required, max 500.

E) Works on as much available hardware as possible. All Maxwell architecture is a must.

F) Works as a solo miner - is able to communicate directly with the monero wallet software.

2) Mining performance (up to 3500 XMR)

A) Hash rates reach the price point equivalent of Claymore's AMD GPU miner. Currently the highest reported hashrates are 745 h/s for the Sapphire R9 290X, which at the time of writing is a $350 GPU. The NVIDIA pricepoint equivalent is the GTX 970. Existing hashrate of a GTX 970 is ~400 h/s.

The exponential function would be payout = (hashrate increase)^(1/29.3) , which would produce an exponential curve to exactly 3587 XMR for 745 h/s. I don't think this curve is attractive, because a hashrate of +100 would only reward ~11 xmr. + 200 = 113, +300 = 1208,

Okay, I came up with a nice looking curve.

payout = ( 1.2 ^ ((hashrate increase) / 17.7) ) * 100

but hashrate increase >= 50.

so the minimum is 169 XMR

    100 h/s, ~280 XMR

    200, 784 XMR

    250, 1313 XMR

etc. If you can come up with a better curve, please do! My excel skills got boring.

Secondary Milestones

(these will only be funded if the primary milestone funding levels are met)
3) GUI - 200 XMR

A GUI for all available platforms.
4) Longterm support - 1000 XMR (or however much is leftover after primary milestones)

20 XMR for a pull request that results in > 10 % increase in singular hardware (one card)
100 XMR for a pull request that results in > 10% increase in at least 5 cards
100 XMR for adding compatibility with new hardware (e.g., the code didn't work on newly release hardware at all, the pull request makes it work)

This still isn't set in stone. Please provide input.

The rationale for all this is over here:
https://forum.getmonero.org/7/open-tasks/323/open-source-gpu-mining-software-hashrate-increase-fund-bounty-hire-a-dev-whatever

Also, claymore never responded to my question re: how much it would cost to make his miner open source.

edit #1: include solo mining function in first milestone, reworded sentence using tunable so it doesn't get flagged by spellchecker, because apparently tunable isn't a word.

Could someone please release a compiled version of this miner for Linux. Or point me towards instructions for Linux noobs that explains how to compile this.

I assume you're talking about tsivs miner. I've found you have to end up having all of the below nonsense for it to work - probably some library dependency. So I could post my binary, but i've copied binaries from one linux box to another and it didn't work (forget why), so I just ended up following these from start to finish.

step 0: set up your miner box to run headless via SSH. This is the best way. You might be able to pull off using your video card and mining at the same time, but I wouldn't recommend it.

First, install an nvidia driver. I've found 331 works the best for a 750 ti.

http://www.noobslab.com/2014/12/use-nvidia-graphics-drivers-in.html

Then, go through this nightmare to install the CUDA nonsense UP TO THE INSTALL CUDA MINER PART.

https://d3adbra1n.wordpress.com/2014/05/03/cuda-miner-installation-on-a-fresh-ubuntu-14-04-lts/

Tip: when the long ass agreement thing pops up, you can hit ctrl-c to skip straight to typing accept. I didn't know this for a long time and would just put a weight on my down arrow to scroll through the thing. Or whatever the scroll was.

When you get to step 31, do this instead:

git clone git://github.com/tsiv/ccminer-cryptonight

that'll plop it in /ccminer-cryptonight/

then pick it up from step 35.

A reboot is required to get your video driver working (from my experience)

ah ok. Thank you. I was just following the thread in order to get news regarding the new miner Smiley)
