SGMiner-GM 5.5.5

@NaN-git NaN-git released this Jan 17, 2017 · 30 commits to master since this release

The newest SGMiner-GM update is here!

We've got sysfs controls; we've got XMR bug fixes; we've got Zawawa's Gateless Gate integrated! That's right, miners - you've now got the fastest open-source Zcash miner out there. Enjoy!

##Known Issues:

  • gpu-powertune needs to be removed from your configuration file if you're not using kernel 4.9 or later.
  • gpu-powertune is not in percentage, but in wattage when using the AMDGPU driver. Also if your kernel is older than 4.9 you need to remove gpu-powertune from your config.
  • It may be necessary to disable sysfs hardware management by enabling no-adl when using the AMDGPU driver.
  • XMR algorithm switching is untested.

##Zcash Expected Performance:

  • RX 470: 190 H/s
  • R9 380 (with fglrx): 128 H/s

You can find the configurations here:

Kernel 4.9 or Later:

Zcash
XMR
Ethereum

UPDATE: A sysfs hw-control fallback path has been introduced, for users whose temperatures were not being displayed, and other erroneous issues.

SGMiner-GM 5.5.4

@OhGodAGirl OhGodAGirl released this Dec 3, 2016

Whew. It's here!

Welcome to the latest update of SGMiner-GM - sgminer-5.5.4!

SGMiner-GM is a revitalization of the sgminer project, brought to you by Genesis Mining - the leading hash power provider.

This project is maintained by Phillip Otterbein, OhGodAGirl, and Wolf.

Changes

Zcash

Ethereum

  • Ethereum code has been cleaned up.
  • It's possible to switch between algorithms now, and different chains.

XMR

  • Added XMR to SGMiner-GM.

sysfs

  • Temperature monitoring and fan control! Now, auto-fan will automatically adjust the fans to maintain a certain temperature.
  • Fans will be raised to 100% on overheat.

General

  • GPU RAM is allocated for 6 DAG changes, which should fix some reported problems.

Bugs

  • SGMiner-GM will crash if switching between XMR and Ethash.
  • SilentArmy's kernel needs to be updated from Version 4 to Version 5.
  • There is errenous whitespace throughout the code. This will need to be fixed to keep it consistent with SGMiner-GM's coding conventions (2 spaces, no tabs).

SGMiner-GM with XMR Support

@OhGodAGirl OhGodAGirl released this Oct 16, 2016 · 72 commits to master since this release

We’ve added XMR support to SGMiner-GM!

This is a pre-release version. Optimizations and bug fixes will be added in the next few weeks. Windows is not currently supported due to a bug.

Expected Hashrate:

R9 280X = 530 H/s
R9 380 = 475 H/s
RX 480 = 550 H/s

Known Bugs:

  • Windows crashes when mining begins.
