Performance improvements for Octopus and Ethash algorithms on Nvidia GPUs.
Ethash improvements: +1.7% on Turing (16xx, 20xx), +0.5% on Ampere (30xx).
Octopus improvements: +4% on Turing (16xx, 20xx), +2% on Ampere (30xx).
- Octopus algorithm (Conflux) performance improvements for Nvidia GPUs:
- +1% performance improvement on Pascal arch (10xx);
- +10% performance improvement on Turing arch (16xx, 20xx);
- +1.5% performance improvement on Ampere arch (30xx).
- Nicehash support was added for Octopus algorithm.
- Fixed running VerusHash on Windows.
- Smarter auto update feature behaviour. It now downloads regular package if updating regular package and downloads
cuda11package if updating
autoUpdateoption to enable auto update feature.
- Performance improvements of Octopus algorithm (Conflux) on Nvidia GPUs, approximately
- +4% on 10xx series,
- +18% on 16xx and 20xx series,
- +24% on 30xx series.
- Added initial support for new AMD RX 6800, 6800 XT and 6900 XT GPUs on Ethash and KawPoW algorithms.
- Added Verushash algorithm for VerusCoin support on CPUs with PCLMUL, AES and AVX hardware instructions supported.
- Use Nanopool's Conflux pools by default. Minimum
config.inifile for Conflux mining on Nanopool now looks like this:
wallet = 0x1fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff coin = CFX
dagSeroption to serialize DAG generation on Octopus, Ethash and KawPoW algorithms. This is a workaround for some hardware specific issues, disabled by default.
- Added support for Nvidia 30xx series of GPUs, use
cuda11version of package for them.
Octopus (Conflux) performance is 38 MH/s on stock 3070.
Ethash and KawPoW algorithms are now supported too on Nvidia 30xx.
- 8% performance increase on Nvidia 10xx series GPUs on Octopus algorithm.
Significantly improved performance of octopus (Conflux) algorithm on Nvidia: +96% up to 4.5 MH/s on stock p106, +139% up to 22.7 MH/s on stock 2060.
Nvidia 30xx GPUs will be supported soon.
*Update: Added missed
nvrtc64_111_0.dll in windows package. RavenCoin mining may be broken on windows in this release.
Added support for Conflux Network's Octopus algorithm on Nvidia GPUs:
2.3 MH/s on stock 1060, p106
6.5 MH/s on stock 1080 ti
Dev fee is only 2% for Octopus.
Both pool mining and solo mining with node are supported.
Example of config file for pool mining:
wallet = 0x1bebf6e224586a4ce22e50faee656176ad155bb9 coin = CFX rigName = rig1 pool1 = cfx.666pool.cn:6655 pool2 = cfx.f2pool.com:6800
Example of config file for solo minig:
[octopus] ; Wallet is setup in node for solo mining, it does not matter here. wallet=0 pool1=192.168.0.123:32525
First known GPU miner to support upcoming Ethereum Classic's EtcHash algorithm.
Switching ETC mining from Ethash to EtcHash is hardcoded on epoch 390 (current ETC epoch is 383).
No special changes in config is necessary, minimal config for ETC is the following:
wallet = 0x9eab4b0fc468a7f5d46228bf5a76cb52370d068d coin = ETC
Mining on Mordor ETC EtcHash testnet is possible too with the config like this:
[etchash] ; Wallet is set up in node, it doesn't matter what you write here. wallet=0 ; IP and port of your Mordor node. pool1=127.0.0.1:8545 coin=mordor
- Removed dev fee for RandomHash2 (Pascal coin) algorithm. Mining Pascal is now free.
countDevSharesconfig file option to control if dev reward shares are reflected in miner statistics or not.
