Team Red Miner v0.8.1

Key highlights:

  • Big Navi support added. This is just a basic support release for all supported Navi algos (ethash, kawpow, mtp, nimiq).
    o Kernels are close to or identical with Navi10 A-mode (ethash) and default modes for Navi10 (kawpow, mtp, nimiq).
    o Please read the updated ETHASH_TUNING_GUIDE.txt for a short tuning section at the very end of the file.
    o Big Navi should run in A-mode for ethash (default choice), not B-mode. Read tuning guide for more info.

  • Eth+zil mining: new pool strategy 'min_epoch' added for switching between plain eth and eth+zil pools. See the example start script start_zil_eth(.bat/.sh) for usage.

  • Ethash: Navi display gpus now using A-mode by default to prevent allocation issues, especially on Windows. Navi gpus without a monitor attached will continue to default to B-mode.

  • Statistics: now proper handling of negative temperatures under Linux.

Team Red Miner v0.8.0

Biggest release in a long while with rewritten ethash kernels and new mining modes for all gpu types!

Users are highly(!) recommended to take a few minutes to read the 0.7-to-0.8 migration guide and the new ethash tuning guide.

Key highlights:

  • Polaris: Efficiency and slight hashrate increase. B-mode reintroduced for added hash. B-mode must be enabled with --eth_aggr_mode or --eth_config=Bxxx.

  • Vega 56/64: greatly improved base kernel for efficiency. New B-mode that can shave off additional 1-2W on top of the A-mode kernel. B-mode must be enabled manually with --eth_config (--eth_aggr_mode does not apply). Tuning numbers have changed - do NOT keep your old static --eth_config values.

  • Radeon VII: huge boost with its new C-mode but requires a special Linux setup. Can now do 100 MH/s on most air cooled VIIs. See tuning guide.

  • 5700/5700XT: can shave off as much as 8-9W(!) of power using the new B-mode and dropping core clk+voltage. B-mode now the default mining mode. Unless you retune your core clk+voltage you will see a tiny power draw increase instead and not benefit from the upgrade, so read the migration guide.

  • 5600XT: new B-mode has a much smaller effect. A-mode remains the default mining mode. See new tuning guide for more details.

  • The dag cache is NOT compatible with the new B/C-modes. ETH+ZIL switchers have to choose between caching the epoch 0 dag and using the new mining modes.

  • Ethash 4GB kernels NOT rewritten in this release, performance remains the same as in 0.7.x.

TeamRedMiner v0.7.22

Highlights:

  1. NAVI KERNEL REWRITE! Over the last month we've been working on new kernels. The first one released is for Navi. The main feature is lower power consumption, hashrate will remain about the same but depends somewhat on clocks. NOTE: please let the miner retune any existing --eth_config arguments for all Navi gpus, the new values will be significantly lower.

  2. Claymore API now supported, meaning you can use EthMan to monitor TRM rigs.

This release supports a range of algorithms optimized for AMD GCN GPUs (ethash, kawpow, nimiq, lyra2z, phi2, lyra2rev3, x16r, x16rv2, x16s, x16rt, MTP, cuckarood29, cuckatoo31, chukwa-512, cryptonight R, cryptonight v8 and a lot of other cryptonight variants).

Please see the readme for more details.

TeamRedMiner v0.7.21

Quick release improving stability for ETH 4GB gpus running at 4078-4080MB capped DAG allocation. If you're seeing crashes after 5-10 mins when trying to push allocation to 4078-4080MB, please try this version.

TeamRedMiner v0.7.20

ETH is now approaching the start of the 4GB death with the upcoming switch to epoch 382. TRM was the first miner to add support for mining with 4GB gpus with a partial DAG, here called "extended mining". However, it has always required manual configuration. This release adds a default conservative cap at 4072MB for DAG storage on 4GB gpus for out-of-the-box execution of the miner. For maximum performance, miners are still advised to manually tune their rig(s) with the --eth_4g_max_alloc argument. Most rigs runs stable with a higher value than 4072, which makes a significant difference for upcoming ETH epochs.

For more detailed instructions, please read our updated Ethash 4GB guide.

This release supports a range of algorithms optimized for AMD GCN GPUs (ethash, kawpow, nimiq, lyra2z, phi2, lyra2rev3, x16r, x16rv2, x16s, x16rt, MTP, cuckarood29, cuckatoo31, chukwa-512, cryptonight R, cryptonight v8 and a lot of other cryptonight variants).
