New SRBMiner 1.6.7 CryptoNight AMD miner with Binary Kernels
- Created: Thursday, 30 August 2018 04:16
The last update of the AMD GPU miner for the CryptoNight algorithm - SRBMiner added some binary kernels, which allows the miner to boot faster on some popular AMD GPUs, rather than compiling the kernels every time the software is started. Binary kernels also solve problems with drivers version 18.7 or newer. Precompiled binary cores are available for the following AMD GPUs: Vega 56, Vega 64, Vega FE, RX 470, RX 480, RX 570, RX 580.
Older AMD graphics processors, such as R9 2x0 and R9 3x0, are still supported, but they will still compile the kernels every time they start. If you have any problems with working with precompiled binary kernels, you can simply delete the BinaryKernels folder, and the miner will generate them again each time it starts.
Also, in the new version, some optimizations for the Heave algorithm have been added (you can expect an additional several percent of performance for this algorithm). In addition, there are a number of other fixes and improvements, a complete list of which you can see below.
Full list of changes in SRBMiner V1.6.7:
- Added precompiled kernels for popular AMD video cards.
- Auto settings are improved for most supported video cards, especially for the RX550-RX560.
- Some OpenCL optimizations have been added, mainly for Heavy algorithms (Heavy, Haven, Bittubev2, Italo).
- Removed the "--sendallstales" option, because now this is the default behavior of the miner.
- When the switching of the mining algorithms is used, the total mining time is now shown, and not only for a certain algorithm.
- Now, when you start the miner, a new log file is created each time.
- Added option "--algoswitchmintime".
- The default setting for the Monero Ocean pool to switch algorithms, you just need to edit the hash value and change the purse in the sample files.
