miniZ a fast and friendly Equihash <144,5> miner

so long time average is 493 using 6 cards.
82 sol/s per card

i had a core dump crash after 2 and half days mining i did not investigate about it because i saw it while i was at work . next crash i’ll take time look at system logs ( may be in cuda’s ) and report to you

Hi rhum200, that card may need some tuning in the miner. We’ll see if we can do it.
Regarding the crash, we’ll investigate trying to reproduce the error. If it happens again, it would be great if you can report back. Thank you so much for your cooperation.

Can anyone vouch for these figures?

wow, time to try your miner! wosh it means ~40S/s for my two 1050 gpus!
how is the functionality of the rig during mining?
can it handle some more process or it will freeze?

Im testing it now:
1050ti 4gb: 18.5S/s
1050 2gb: 16.5S/s

Total: 35Sol/s it means +5Sol compaired to EWBF!

Hi FollowWings,
because the miner uses almost all GPU resources, everything running in parallel will certainly have an effect in performance.
However, the best is to try and see how it goes. :slight_smile:

I am at 66 S / s maximum.

Hi gilardh,
Sure. We share the settings we tested, and that seemed stable, here https://miniz.ch/1445-2/
The version v1.2m should bring an improvement for this gpu. Will be out soon, within a week…maybe less.

Hi everyone,

Thank you for your patience! A new version miniZ v1.5t is out!

miniZ has speed improvements in the new version. All GPUs and algos have improvements, including for 144,5! ! :slight_smile:

Also, in brief:

  • Better support for GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1070.
  • Improved stability.
  • Fixed telemetry on Chrome browser.
  • Fixed CPU load when mining Beam on Windows.
  • Cleaner program exit/termination.

Few notes:

  • When adjusting your GPUs settings do not forget to test it with –oc1/oc2 since it may boost your performance a little. –oc1/oc2 changed for some GPUs and algos in the new version. For updated information read the specific topic on FAQ page.
  • On Download page you can find Cuda 10 and Cuda 8 versions (Linux and Windows). For Turing architectures (16xx series and RTX) you need to use Cuda 10.0 versions.
