New NBMiner 30.0 With Memory Timings Optimization for Nvidia GPUs
The latest NBMiner 30.0 update comes with a built-in replacement for the OhGodAnETHlargementPill memory timings optimization tool for Nvidia GPU owners of GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti with GDDR5X video memory. The implementation from NBMiner does however requires the use of a custom unsigned driver under Windows and admin privileges under Linux, so not as easy as just running a custom executable file to enable the tweaks. Once implemented however it could allow for greater flexibility as you have the option to use different levels of optimizations for the memory timings via command line parameters. Have in mind that not all crypto algorithms may benefit from memory timings optimization, here are the two options you need to use to enable and activate the memory tings optimizations in the latest version of NBMiner.
–mt, –memory-tweak Memory timings optimize for Nvidia GDDR5 & GDDR5X gpus. range [1-6]. Higher value equals higher hashrate. Individual value can be set via comma seperated list. Power limit may need to be tuned up to get more hashrate. Higher reject share ratio can happen if mining rig hits high temperature, set lower value of -mt can reduce reject ratio. Under windows, a custom driver need to be installed before using -mt, see description of –driver for more detail. Admin priviledge is needed to run under linux, sudo ./nbminer -mt x. OhGodAnETHlargementPill is not needed anymore if -mt is enabled when mining on 1080 & 1080ti GPUs.
–driver Windows only option, install / uninstall driver for memory tweak. Run with admin priviledge. install: nbminer.exe –driver install, uninstall: nbminer.exe –driver uninstall. Note: the installed custom driver is not signed by microsoft, users need to disable secure boot in BIOS settings to get the driver work.
We remind you that the NBMiner is a closed source GPU miner for Nvidia CUDA and now AMD as well that is available for both Windows and Linux operating systems and it has the following developer fee built-in: tensority_ethash 3%, tensority(Pascal) 2%, tensority(Turing) 3%, ethash 0.65%, cuckaroo & cuckatoo & cuckaroo_swap 2%, progpow_sero 2%, sipc 2%, bfc 3%, hns 2%, hns_ethash 3%, trb 2%, trb_ethash 3%, kawpow 2%.
