Important: There are different versions for GPUs with 4GB and 8GB of RAM! If you have a card with only 4GB download the other version (1.1.0). 4GB is for AMD only!



  • Windows and Linux 64bit only.
  • AMD GCN cards and NVIDIA.

Expected speed (stock card):

  • Fiji (4GB): 7.5 S/s
  • RX 290x (4GB): 5.5 S/s
  • RX480 (8GB): 9.1 S/s
  • GTX1080: 8.2 S/s

The miner contains a 2.5% fee for supporting the developer. All shown hash rates are net rate, i.e., with fee deducted. What you see is what YOU get!


Run from the archive root directory:

$ ./optiminer-zero -s -u moobar.worker -p x

For a list of all options run with -h:

$ ./optiminer-zero -h

There are also '' and 'start.bat' scripts for running it under Linux and Windows. Just edit the pool and user settings before running!

You need to run the miner from the directroy where optiminer-zcash is in otherwise it will not find the opencl kernel. cannot open object

There is a problem with your OpenCL installation. Make sure that there is a symlink /usr/lib/ that points to the OpenCL library on your system.

[error] OpenCL error: cl::Context::Context() (CL_DEVICE_NOT_FOUND)

Either you have specified a wrong device / platform combination or there is a problem with your OpenCL setup.

By default platform id 0 is used. You can specify a different platform by adding '-c N' to the command line where N is a small number (try 0,1,2).

Restarting X might help to re-initialize the graphic driver under Linux.

Internal error: Link failed

This can happen if you use an unsupported version of the graphic driver. Try updating to the newest driver or use --force-generic-kernel to get a slower implementation that also runs on older drivers.
