Nvidia 6GB cards and AMD 8GB cards supported. 6GB cards in Windows10 may not work as Windows steals some of the memory.

Changes:

  • Improved stratum connection code
  • Implemented tweaks based on miner from eth_saver (faster amd and slightly less CPU usage)
  • Additional settings for primary stratum reconnect - new option in config to optionally reconnect from backup back to primary pool after X minutes. Either let miner generate new config or just add ReconnectToPrimary
  • Fixed minor bugs

Requires .NET Core 2.2 installed!
https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download

Restart your PC after you install .NET Core Runtime and the miner (config setup)

Known bugs:

GPU auto-detection can fail - use manual config
Some AMD GPUs need setx GPU_MAX_WORKGROUP_SIZE 1024
Low virtual memory is hard to report and will leave some GPUs in fault state

Changes:

  • 6GB CUDA solver for nvidia cards (also allows RTX 8GB mining on Win10)
  • Better graph-rate on nvidia cards
  • New logging options in config (disable logging completely, delete old logs)
  • Bugfixes

Nvidia 8GB cards and AMD 8GB cards supported (RTX 8GB may not work on Win10, but work on Win7)

Changes:

  • Various smaller fixes and improvements
  • Can be started without TUI for system where TUI des not work (cmd parameter mode=rolling)
  • Respects difficulty from pool and only submits shares that meets this difficulty target
  • Please try 2.8 beta1 if you are experiencing individual GPUs going offline (experimental)
  • 2.8 beta 2 is experimental build trying to solve issue #62

UPDATE It is again ok to use RC4 with Grinmint pool. Recommended is to use RC4 for all situations, as it calculates difficulty correctly.
