The very useful AMD Memory Tweak Tool that was initially only available for Linux is now also available as a beta for Windows users as well. With the help of the free and open source software from Evilop you can read and modify memory timings “on the fly” for compatible AMD GPUs that do come with GDDR5 or HBM2 memory (HBM was also supported initially, but is temporary disabled as it apparently need some fixing). Before starting to do anything with the tool you should check the Readme and run AMD Memory Tweak with the option --current in order to see what GPUs it detects and what memory settings are currently active. It might also help to see what other users have found out as good working configurations for their hardware and have reported on Bitcointalk based on their experiments with the memory tool.

There is a new interesting tool released by Eliovp for modifying the video memory timings of AMD GPUs on the fly, so no need to modify and reflash the GPU BIOS anymore to do so. The not so good news for some users is that the tool is currently available for Linux only, but still you can test under Linux and make permanent changes via BIOS if needed after that for mining under Windows. The AMD Memory Tweak tool supports GDDR5 an HBM/HBM2 memory AMD GPUs and should be able to help increase hashrate in memory intensive algorithms such as Ethash for example. The AMD Memory Tweak tool is similar to the ETHlargementPill for Nvidia GDDR5X-based GPUs as an idea and functionality. The software is available as open source and is completely free to use, however you are welcome to send the author a tip if you find it useful.
