Cast XMR Version 1.5.0 (2018/9/27)

  • Support for the Monero V8 Network Upgrade which introduces a new CryptoNight variant CryptoNightV8 aka CNv2. The Monero V8 update is scheduled for 18th October. In case you are mining Monero make sure to update Cast XMR before that date. Also make sure that the algo for Monero is not explicitly set to CryptoNightV7 but set to auto detect with --algo=-1 to automatically switch from CryptoNightV7 to CryptoNightV8 when the upgrade is happening. Please also note that the CryptoNight V8 algo has added complexity which decreases the hashrate up to 7% for Vega GPUs.

  • Support for the Haven (XHV) V3 update. In case you are mining Haven set --algo=7
  • Support for Stellite (XTL) V4 Update. Set --algo=6 in case you are mining Stellite
  • All new --intensity option to specify the memory allocation in the range of 0 to 10 (up to 12 for Vega Frontier Edition). The default setting will correspond with the settings of version 1.0 and are displayed at startup.
  • Vega Frontier 'Large Pages' support added, upto 30% higher hash rates for CryptoNight-Heavy, 5% increase for CryptoNight
  • Includes the switch-radeon-gpu command line tool to restart GPUs, switch on/off HBCC, Compute Mode and Large Pages
  • Nicehash supports now up to 24 GPUs (previous version was limited to 8)
  • --maxmem option is deprecated, will now be mapped to an corresponding intensity setting
  • --forcecompute is deprecated, 'Compute Mode' of Polaris GPUs will be automatically detected. To overwrite use the --intensity option
  • Default mining algo changed to CryptoNightV7, to still mine CryptoNight Classic add --algo=0
  • Tested with Radeon Adrenalin Driver 18.4.1

@glph3k glph3k released this May 31, 2018 · 14 commits to master since this release

  • Support for Aeon (AEON) CryptoNight Lite variant set --algo=3 to mine
  • Support for Turtlecoin (TRTL) CryptoNightV7 Lite variant set --algo=4 to mine
  • Support for BitTube (TUBE) (forme IPBC) CryptoNight Lite IPBC variation set --algo=5 to mine
  • Up to 3% performance improvement with new option --maxmem to allocate the maximum memory of the card. For Vega cards the "HBCC Memory Segment" has to be disabled in the Radeon Settings to use the option.
    Disadvantage is a higher risk of hash rate drops when the --maxmem option is used.
