@Lolliedieb Lolliedieb released this Feb 7, 2019

lolMiner 0.7 alpha 5

Minimal one liner example:

Linux:

./lolMiner --coin BEAM --pool beam-eu.sparkpool.com --port 2222 --user <your permanent address>.<worker name>

Windows:

lolMiner.exe --coin BEAM --pool beam.sunpool.top --port 3333 --user <your public api key>.<worker name>

Changes (alpha 5b over alpha 5)

  • Removed stratum debug output from Linux version (sry, I forgot about that)

Changes (over alpha 4 branch)

  • Fixed a bug with many drivers that made the miner run slower then alpha 2 (especially Windows)
  • Added Nicehash support
  • Added a switch to turn on / off TLS (--tls 0 in cmd or “TLS” : 0 in config file to turn if off for BEAM). The default will be coin dependent and is ON for Beam.
  • Some small mining kernel change. Minimal better performance
  • Added --help command. Still needs some proper formating, but it works
  • Some internal bug fixes

Performance

HD 7950: 8 sol/s
R9 280: 8-10 sol/s
RX 560: 6.0 sol/s
RX 570: 11.0 sol/s
RX 580: 12.5 sol/s
Vega 56: 19.5 sol/s
Vega 64: 21 sol/s
GTX 1060 3G: 11 sol/s (1) (2)
GTX 1060 6G: 13 sol/s (2)
GTX 1070: 17 sol/s (2)
RTX 2060 21 sol/s

(1) 3G mining is officially supported in Linux version and for Windows 7. Windows 10 does not allow full use of the GPU memory and uses itself some for Edge / Skype / Cortana and other system function. So it may happen that 3G cards fail the memory check or show 0 sol/s (Nvidia) or are slower then expected (AMD).

(2) Depending on core clock. Note that lolMiner likes clock frequency, because it makes massive use of the
L2 cache of the chip. On Nvidia lowering power target without other settings will massively impact your
performance. The best solution around this is to undervolt without only slightly lower clocks.
