Scavenger - PoCC's Burstcoin reference Miner for Linux/Unix/Windows/MacOs/Android (32&64bit).

It offers:

  • SSE2, AVX, AVX2, AVX512F and NEON support
  • OpenCL GPU support
  • DirectIO

changelog:

  • back to rust stable toolchain for most platforms (use 'rustup default stable' to change your toolchain when compiling). Arm version only builds on nightly.
  • updated all dependencies
  • fixed a race condition for fast blocks
  • added GPU async mode (transfer data to GPU and hash async)
  • optimized thread handling: reduced the number of threads, CPU tasks now spawn on a threadpool. GPU threads can be reduced to a minimum. Recommendation: integrated GPU: 1 thread, dedicated GPU 2-4 threads. GPU mining needs less GPU Ram and startup time is faster.
  • Run "scavenger - o" to hint the ideal gpu_nonce_per_cache multiplier for maximum occupancy.
  • NB for dedicated GPU's: The speed of you GPU mainly depends on your PCIe speed. The GPU mining bottleneck is not computation but data transfer. Make sure your card is set for PCIe-16x and expect speeds around 10GB/s (1050 TI and higher).
  • removed multi-chain switch
