New Ethminer 0.9.41-genoil-1.1.2 pre-release Windows Binary

2 Jun


Here comes a Windows binary for another pre-release of Genoil’s ethminer 0.9.41 fork version 1.1.2 (source) that should be used by people with the latest generation of Nvidia Pascal GPUs such as GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. The release is compiled with CUDA 8.0 and has support for Compute 6.1 that is used by the latest Nvidia GPUs, however it seems that the performance under Windows is currently significantly lower that you would expect on the GTX 1080/1070, so it is recommended to use Linux for the best performance on these video cards for now (similar to the situation with GTX 750 Ti). Regardless, you would be able to run this version of Nvidia Pascal GPUs for mining Ethereum, but at just about 1/4 – 1/5 of the performance you would be getting if using Linux with the same GPU. On Maxwell and other older architectures there should be no notable difference in terms of performance however with this Windows binary compared to previous releases. Other new addition is the support for simultaneous mining on both AMD and Nvidia GPUs installed in the same system (you need to use the option X instead of G or U), prior to that you could only run OpenCL or CUDA, but not on both at the same time. Do note that the new mixed X mode for CL/CUDA mining does not yet support separate settings for optimum performance for the different GPUs such as local and global work per GPU. Again, this is a pre-release version with the idea for people to try and report how the new features work and if they find any bugs, so you are welcome to try it…

Didnt work on my 1080. Said something about error in func cuda serach line 306: the lauch tmied out and was terminated

Unfortunately we still do not have access to Nvidia Pascal GPUs to test…

My Crossfire 280x have been crashing with the newer drivers, after 15.3xxx. I currently have the latest AMD drivers installed for support of my HTC Vive. Does anyone know if a fix for this or a setting that may help.

Looks like it still has to be compiled with CUDA 6.5 to function with Win10 at decent speeds. Bummer.

just received my GTX 1080 :-) but I get exactly the same error than Hans.

I have:
1. 780Ti windows 10, – 4,16MH/s Cuda or openCl
2. Gigabyte RADEON HD 7970 Video Card (GV-R797TO-3GD) – 15mh/s

what could be the problem?

Nvidia is generally performing slower on Ethereum, Windows 10 isn’t helping either as on some Nvidia GPUs further reduces the hashrate…

What operating system will advise for radeon 7950 7970 280x?
Chips from different manufacturers produce radically different results on the same operating system.

Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 7950 (GV-R795WF3-3GD) 3GB GDDR5 for comparison, this card gives in Windows 10, 25mh / s

My gtx 680 DCU top give me 18MH/s
thanks for the work on this miner

It seems that GTX 1080 has some driver issues and in order not to crash the driver you can add the following parameters --cuda-grid-size 2048 --cuda-block-size 128, but it will be super slow (less than 1 MHS). In Windows 10 you can get a few megahashes for the moment, waiting fro driver update to increase performance and fro full performance you need to use Lunux for the moment.

what about other algo for the 1070?


October 5th, 2016 at 06:16

New to mining, but would like to know how to get started with it pls.

I’m new to mining bitcoin.
I have new Asus Radeon r9 380 Sitrix graphic card.
1) Which mining software you would recommend using Windows 10 32 bit / 64 bit and Windows 7 32 bit ?
2) Any additional setup to the GPU need to be done to ensure the stability when mining ?
3) Additional suggestion s &a feedback much appreciated
