Claymore has updated his dual Ethereum plus DCR, SC, LBRY, PASC, Blake2s and Keccak AMD and Nvidia GPU miner to version 14.1 bringing some extra performance with built-in memory straps with optimized timings for AMD GPUs along with some new features, improvements and bug fixes. Version 14.0 Beta of the miner has added the ability to apply optimized memory timings (straps) on-the-fly without the need to reflash the video BIOS (Windows only for now) for AMD Polaris GPUs giving you up to 20% boost in performance, 14.1 extends the support for AMD VEGA GPUs with up to 15% boost in performance. Claymore is apparently also working on implementing support for Nvidia GPUs as well in order to avoid the need to use external software along with his miner for the extra memory boost.

We remind you that the Claymore Dual Ethereum miner is a closed source software with a built-in developer fee of 1% by default, though you can disable the dev fee at the cost of slightly slower performance. You can read what is the full list of changes in the latest version 14.1 below:

– “strap” option: added support for Vega cards, up to 15% speedup compared to stock BIOS. Use “-strap 1” … “-strap 5” values and overclock memory to find the best hashrate.
– improved compatibility with AMD 18.x drivers.
– now miner uses CUDA10 runtime library for Nvidia.
– a few minor bug fixes and improvements.

Claymore has updated his dual Ethereum plus DCR, SC, LBRY, PASC, Blake2s and Keccak AMD and Nvidia GPU miner to version 11.6 bringing some performance improvements for slower Nvidia GPUS as well as increasing the usability of older GPUs with less VRAM along with new features and bug fixes. You can read what is the full list of changes in the latest version 11.6 below:

– improved hashrate for weak Nvidia cards by about 1%.
– zero devfee for 3GB cards in Windows 10, same as for all 2GB cards.
– applied some tricks to increase available memory for 3GB cards in Windows 10 so you can mine ETH a bit longer.
– now you can press “y” key to turn on “Compute Mode” in AMD drivers for all cards (Windows only).
– Linux version: removed openssl library dependency.
– improved “-logfile” option, now you can use it to specify a folder for log files, use slash at the end to do it, for example, “-logfile logs\”.
– added “-epoolsfile” and “-dpoolsfile” options.
– remote management: now “miner_getstat2” command also returns PCI bus index for every GPU.
– a few minor bug fixes and improvements.

Claymore has released an update to his popular Ethereum dual miner for AMD and Nvidia GPUs with some new interesting and useful features as well as some small improvements. The new version 11 comes with two new algorithms that can be used in dual mining mode along with Ethereum or any other Ethash-based coin, these are Blake2s and Keccak. Another importan change is the reduced developer fee for dual mode that is now at 1.5% and the removal of the dev fee completely for video cards with just 2GB of video memory (you cannot mine ETH/ETC with these anymore, but the miner will work with other forks). The “-asm 2” option value now supports Tahiti, Tonga, Ellesmere, Baffin AMD GPUs and in some cases it can be a bit faster in ETH-only mode, so you can give it a try if you have a mining rig with any of these.
