Use the sgminer 5.6.0 Nicehash Fork for X11-Gost (SIBCoin) Mining

17 Feb

At the moment Nvidia GPU miners have the advantage for mining X11-Gost with a faster hashrate for the more recent Maxwell and Pascal GPUs than AMD miners. Still AMD miners might be interested in checking out the X11-Gost algorithm used by SIBCoin (SIB) as it is not that power hungry and with the increased interest with the recent addition of the algorithm on NiceHash as it might offer a nice profitability for users willing to sell their hashrate and get paid in Bitcoins directly.

So if you are using AMD GPU mining rigs you might want to check out X11-Gost on NiceHash using the latest sgminer 5.6.0 Nicehash Fork (source). We are seeing a hasrate of between 7 MH/s and 8 MH/s on stock Radeon RX 480 and while still slower than about 11 MH/s on a stock Nvidia GTX 1070 the fact that the algorithm is not that power demanding and you can use lower power for the GPUs may make it attractive for some users, so do give it a try. Older generation of AMD GPUs may not be the best choice for this algorithm performance wise and the same pretty much goes for older Nvidia GPUs, but for AMD Polaris and Nvidia Maxwell and Pascal it is.

Hi, i dont know where to post a general Nicehash or mining commend so i chose here.
I just got a new Radeon RX470 card and it was mining so nicely for a few days non 24/7 though .
My ethereum speed was 24MH/s no overclocking stuff and my zcash speed was 280-290 odd solutions/s.
I have been fanning the room but the temperatures mostly got to 73 degrees but its starting winter now here in the south so i barely get 70 it sits at 69 with Zcash and maybe 71 with ethereum i dont know why the one is hotter.

My mining earning was like 1.85 USD to 2.09 and i dont know but now all of a sudden this weekend its been horrible, my earnings are like 1.55 to 1.65 i dont understand what has gone wrong, is my card faulty now and old a moldy ? like it is hurt or something?

I am sure I have installed the correct drivers…and I am running windows 7 64 bit.

I have been uninstalling and re-installing drivers… and i have been rebooting. i dont understand it, but my earnings in Nicehash says 1.52 now on the GPU alone. i dont get it really i dont i feel sad now.

The other day it was pumping and it was showing 2.19 for the GPU alone …it was like super amazing.

The 30-60 odd cents means a lot to me.

Please help me understand what I am doing wrong and or if my dream is over ?
I just bought another Rx470 so i hope this is not just a waste now.

Hey guys,

When I try to start the miner I got this error: WARNING: Number of OpenCL and ADL devices did not match!

and then it crashes.

Also Windows detect the sgminer as a virus and delete it. Any insight about that?

This download is flagged by about 50% of virus scanning engines as being a trojan/dropper.

I recently tried mining x11gost on a rx580 8G. After using a simular setup I am only getting 1-2Mh/s not the 7Mh/s that you are getting. Can you give us an example of the settings that you are using? Are you still getting these kind of hash rates?
