Claymore’s Dual Ethereum AMD+NVIDIA GPU Miner v15.0

28 Aug
2019

As both Ethereum (ETH) and Ethereum Classic (ETC) are getting close to the Epoch 299 (the currently supported one by the previous versions Claymore GPU miners) Claymore has released an updated version of his dual GPU miner for Ethash algorithm with the new version 15.0 supporting up to Epoch 384. If you don’t know the Epoch 384 will mark the limit for mining for the GPUs with 4GB video memory, meaning that they will not be able to mine Ethereum (ETH) anymore as well as any other fork that reaches that epoch. Currently Ethereum Classic is at Epoch #289 or slightly ahead of Ethereum which is at Epoch #281, so make sure you update your Claymore miner before reaching #299 if you are mining any of these Ethereum variants (or any other Ethash-based alternatives although they are probably far behind in terms of Epochs). Reaching Epoch #384 is probably going to happen near the end of 2020 and the next 6GB Epoch is probably going to be reached sometime around beginning of 2024 for Ethereum… that is unless we switch to PoS before that time, but even if ETH switches to Proof of Stake other Ethash coins probably won’t.

Apart from the update regarding new DAG Epoch support for the latest version 15.0 of Claymore’s Dual AMD and Nvidia Ethereum GPU miner, there is also added support for Navi cards (ETH-only mode), now the miner also sets environment variables automatically (required for 4GB AMD cards) as well as some minor bug fixes and improvements. So make sure that you update your miner for Ethash if mining ETH or ETC at the moment on your GPU mining rigs, before the software stops functioning properly at Epoch #299, you have a bit more time before that happens, but do not wait for the last minute.
