  • 2021.04.12
  • Miners update

    • gminer-v2.51 (Fixed bug with AE mining and bug with worker name appeared in 2.50)
    • srbminer-multi-v0.7.2 (Added algorithm heavyhash (oBTC - Optical Bitcoin), fee 2.5%. Dataset creation for autolykos2 on ellesmere GPU's faster ~3%. DevFee for verthash lowered to 1%. Parameter --disable-workers-ramp-up changed back to --enable-workers-ramp-up, so default value of ramp-up is now disabled. Api doesn't report 0 h/s anymore while creating dataset for autolykos2. Added parameter --max-no-submit-responses. Minor bug fixes)
    • t-rex-v0.20.0 (Remove old and rarely used algorithms (x25x, x16r, etc). Combine all CUDA builds into a single binary. (UI) Display maximum share difficulty if --validate-shares is set. --script-epoch-change fails to execute the script when switching to ZIL session when dual mining ETH+ZIL. (API) Inconsistent GPU ordering in API when --pci-indexing is set. Various stability issues)
    • xmrig-v6.11.2 (Fixed regression in HTTP parser and llhttp updated)
  • 2021.04.09

    • lolminer-v1.25 (Added a real Cuda back-end for better Nvidia GPU support on Ethash. Supports Maxwell to Ampere GPU generations. Two different mining kernels. Use --mode a (faster) --mode b (better energy efficiency) to select between the two. The selection can be done per card via a comma separated list. In mixed system select 'a' for skipping over the AMD cards. Both kernel modes need less energy and perform better then in 1.24a. Reduced internal latency for less stale shares. Reduced CPU load when mining with Nvidia cards. ZIL cache feature fully supported (and stable). Temperature stop & Zombie mode is currently not supported. Added Ethash, Beam Hash III & Cortex kernels for RX 6700. The Ethash stratum interface will now try to run up to three attempts of reconnecting before switching the stratum mode. Fixed "Warning: index out of bounds" error when switching from ETHPROXY to ETHV1 stratum mode. This might solve problems with some pools on connection loss)
