Claymore’s Zcash AMD Miner is Really Killing Everything Else Performance Wise
Claymore’s Zcash (ZEC) AMD miner has been up to date a couple of times currently because the release of the original version from some days in the past. The number of optimizations and hashrate enhancements with pretty considerably each major update has been tremendous, bringing back to life many of the previous AMD Radeon GPUs such as 7950/7970 or the 280X, some of the most common mining video cards for the last number of many years. The latest release, presently a significant edition 6 brought far more fixes and optimizations in terms of performance. As a single would expect Nvidia is left behind after a lot more, even though there were some signs that lately it was commencing to catch up to the amounts of overall performance of AMD GPUs, it is now but once again substantially slower. So owners of Nvidia-based mining rigs may well want to switch to some other substitute for mining at the moment right after the most recent functionality boosts from Claymore. Do have in thoughts even so that Claymore’s Zcash miner does come with a two.5% dev fee, beneath is a list of major adjustments and updates of the miner following the original release:
– improved pace by about 20-25% (depends on card model). About 180H/s on stock 390.
– “-i” parameter values are 𔆀 now, default value is “-i 4”.
– fixed situation with mixed cards.
– improved speed by about thirty-50% (depends on card model). About 145H/s on stock 390X.
– improved help for Catalyst sixteen.x and 4xx cards.
– diminished CPU utilization.
– improved speed by about twenty% (depends on card model). Up to 100H/s on stock 390X on “-i two” mode.
– extra “-retrydelay” alternative.
– added “-nofee” alternative.
– numerous bug fixes.
– altered coloring.
– EthMan: extra “View miner console” command.
– enhanced pace by 20-30% (depends on card model). Up to 80H/s on stock 390X on “-i two” mode.
– enhanced stability.
– additional “-i” alternative for adjusting mining intensity and CPU utilization.
– enhanced pace for higher intensity mode (“-i 2”), about 60H/s on stock 390X, 50H/s on stock 280X.
– because nicehash cannot improve their ddos protection, now “-allpools 1” is required for this pool.
– improved speed by five-15% (depends on card model).
– added Linux version.
– fixed concern with rejected shares right after devfee mining.
– take away “-allpools 1” selection if you use it and mine on miningpoolhub, suprnova, coinmine or nicehash pools.
– added “XnSub” support for Nicehash.
– fixed bugs.
