The Latest SRBMiner 1.7.9 Cryptonight AMD GPU Miner is Ready for the March 9th Monero Hard Fork

25 Feb

The latest update to the CryptoNight AMD GPU miner SRBMiner to version 1.7.9 brings support for the new POW algorithm that Monero (XMR) will be switching to in less than two weeks from now. Cryptonight variant 4 (CNv4) also know as CryptonightR will be the new mining algorithm after the upcoming Monero hard fork planned for block number 1788000 that is expected sometime on March 9th. SRBMiner 1.7.9 is the first AMD miner to support the new CryptonightR algorithm, though others will probably soon follow as the time for the fork approaches. Apart from the CryptonightR support the latest version brings support for a few other algorithms, some new features as well as bug fixes as one would expect. You can find the full changelow below. Do note that the developer fee is ~0.85% for both normal mode and algorithm switching mode as SRBMiner is a closed source miner available for AMD GPU miners only under Windows.

SRBMiner V1.7.9 Full Cangelog:
– Added new Monero algo ‘Cryptonight R’
– Added algo ‘Wownero’
– Added algo ‘Conceal’
– Added algo ‘Zelerius’
– Added algo ‘Xcash’
– Replaced ‘Mox’ algo with new ‘Mox V8’ algo
– Added parameter ‘maxnosharesent’ in cmd
– Added parameter ‘randomnonce’ in cmd
– Added parameter ‘enablecoinforking’ in cmd
– Added algo switching info in json and on html stats page
– Lot of bug fixes

– Added new algo ‘Graft’ (graft, cryptonight_graft, cryptonight_reversewaltz, cryptonight_v8_reversewaltz)
– Added cmd parameters giveuplimit, retrytime, mainpoolreconnect, minrigspeed, shutdowntemperature, rebootscriptgpuwatchdog, rebootscriptminrigspeed
– No more mixing of cmd line setup and config files, now it’s one or the other
– It is enough to set ccryptonighttype, cpool, cwallet in cmd, gpu’s will be auto setup
– Fixed a few bugs

– Fixed a bug that could crash miner if using CNV4 (R) algo
– Fixed a bug that crashed miner if doing fast algo switching from CNV4 to any algo
– Stales are not displayed anymore by default, added parameter –showstales which turns back on the display of stale shares
– Changed –maxnosharesent default value from 15 minutes to 30
– Logging is now disabled by default in the example start.bat
– Added parameter –preparedata, which could pontentially make a small speed increase on weak GPU’s, but also could make it worse. All algos except webchain
