  • 2020.05.27
  • Rig update v1280

    • fixed teamredminer API. Now it shows speed values for each GPU but we had bug for 1 day that whole rig value was in kH/s instead of Mh/s so on rig stats you will see kH/s and in separate GPUs you will see MH/s. This is fixed now
  • 2020.05.26
  • BETA Image - fix

    • BETA OS image - we fixed problem on VEGA that hashing speed was a lot worse. Now the new image is added in Advanced commands. Generally it works more less the same as 19.50 drivers on vega. And older nvidia or amd gpus could work more less the same but not faster. SM-5.0.21-17-a20.10-n440.82-v1279.img.xz
  • 2020.05.26
  • Miners update

    • teamredminer-v0.7.2 (Fixed mining on Vegas on older amdgpu-pro drivers)
  • 2020.05.25
  • BETA OS image

    • released new BETA image with newest 20.10 AMD drivers and NVIDIA 440.84 that may have finally good performance on ALL GPU cards (i guess we will find out in users tests :P)
    • this image should have better mining speeds on VEGA / Radeon VII / NAVI (RX5700 series)
    • image contain also fix for popular e1000 network driver that could cause whole network failure due to packet flooding (in past two years there were cases like this, please let me know if this fixes this problem)
    • be sure to use miners that support this 20.10 AMD drivers (phoenix 5.0), because on older versions the performance will be worse !
    • note that you can easily reflash your rig from dashboard ( select one rig on rigList -> Actions -> Advanced Commands -> OS reflash - NEW BETA )
