miniZ v1.8y4rc2 – beta version- is out!
Thank you for all your support and feedback. The new release miniZ v1.8y4rc2 (beta) is out.
We’ve been working with the RTX 3060, RTX 3070 Ti, and the RTX 3080 Ti. We manage to improve performance for LHR GPUs, on ethash mining.
Although it is not yet perfect, we hope this version will offer improvements for all of you.
Also, with this version we improved
--tune option. Now the option is more flexible and you will be able to better tune your GPU/Rig. (Read below/check FAQ)
*** Download miniZ version v1.8y4rc2 here. ***
- Added support for RTX 3070 Ti and 3080 Ti LHR GPUs, on ethash.
- Improved performance for mining locked LHR GPUs while mining ETH.
--tuneoption for better GPU tuning.
- Small improvements for RTX 3060 on 144,5.
Let us know how it goes!
* Next, we share some information about drivers, OCs, and
--tune function. *
Because it is not very efficient or practical to work on all drivers, we focused on just a few but it’s likely that with other driver versions it will also work. The following ones were the most tested:
- Linux: 460.39, 470.63, 470.74;
- Windows: 461.40, 472.12. (It doesn’t work with 471.96).
The older driver 460.39 (Linux)/461.40 (Windows) doesn’t work for all 3060s. You can always try it out, but if it doesn’t work (or if you have other RTX 30XX, RTX 3080 Ti for example) then you have to install a more recent driver.
We also leave here information regarding the OCs we used for testing (driver 470.74). Note that you may need to adjust a bit for your system.
- 3060: core: -150, mem:+2700 (Linux)*, PL=100-110 W; ~36.5 MH/s
- 3070 Ti: core: -200, mem: +3700 (Linux)*, PL=185 W; ~55 MH/s
- 3080 Ti: core: +0, mem: +2900 (Linux)*, PL=265 W. ~82 MH/s
* On Windows, memory clock with MSI Afterburner should be half of the indicated value. For example, for the 3080 Ti you need to set +1450 for memory clock in MSI Afterburner. Note that you may need to adjust a bit for your system.
We modified this option to allow more flexibility when tuning the GPU/Rig. It will work with different parameters (not compatible with the previous version) that you will be able to adjust for your GPU. For more information see FAQ.
The default values are not yet optimal for everyone. We suggest you to play around with i and d starting with small variations around the defaults.
--tune=iN1dN2 where i stands for intensity and d stands for drag.
N2 are numerical values.
- Intensity works quite similar to the previous value that you were using before.
N1can take values in the interval [0, 64].
- Drag will balance intensity.
N2values can vary in the interval [0, 100].
Note: If you increase PL, usually you’ll need to decrease i value.
More information about
--tune usage can be found in FAQ page.
