Claymore’s CryptoNote AMD GPU Miner v10.2 Update Review

While a go Claymore announced a big update for its CryptoNight GPU miner, this just happen few days a go.. On September 29 he released Claymore’s CryptoNote GPU Miner v10.0, there are few more features available since now miner uses the latest framework which is used for dual and zec miners. Because of too many changes in this version, bugs were found and couple of hours later Claymore released v10.1 fixing them.. and currently v10.2 still in beta.
In this article i am going to test the new features and compare the v10.2 with v9.7.
Supported cards: Pitcairn, Tahiti, Hawaii, Fiji, Tonga, Ellesmere, Baffin, Vega.

Updates list
v10.2 Beta:
– added Nicehash pool support.
– added shares validation on CPU and statistics for incorrect shares.
v10.1
– fixed some critical bugs.
– now miner uses the latest framework which is used for dual and zec miners. Therefore several new options are available.
– new assembler GPU kernels are used.
– added “-dmem” options that can improve performance in many cases. Note that twice more GPU memory is used in this mode.
– some old options were removed, some were renamed, please read Readme for detailed information and samples.
– reduced devfee, it’s 1% now if you use secure SSL/TLS connection, 1.5% for unsecure connection.
– devfee is executed every hour, similar to dual and zec miners.
– a lot of minor improvements.

Problems and Fixes

GpuMiner dk2an0 failed -4
Increase virtual memory to 30GB. if you have 6 8GB, set virtual memory to 6*8=48GB
Also make sure you have the following lines added in your .bat file
GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 1
GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
another fix, try lowering -h

4GB cards problem?
try adding -h 928 -dmem 1 or lower -h to 890 if that fails

All problems will be fixed soon since Claymore stated “Don’t worry, v11 will be better, I just need some time ”

The new CryptoNote miner has around 50 H/s more hashrate per GPU, blockchain compute drivers performs better than 16.9.1 giving 20 H/s extra hashrate and also lower power consumption.
Before and After

Hashrate: 750 H/s – 790 H/s = +40/50 H/s
Power Draw: 650w – 450w (500w) = -150w

I will work on a brand new tutorial about how to mine monero on windows with different miners and maybe i can do it for linux as well (simplemining/ethos).
