[Dev] NeoScrypt GPU Miner - Public Beta Test


  • Regular Member | Tip tmuir12

    Making one now, but trying to tweak it for my Clarkdale i5.

    If it works I will zip it up and make it available, it just finished compiling so give me a few minutes


  • Regular Member | Tip tmuir12

    Its running, but I’m still doing something wrong as it is not giving GPU temperature or fan speed.

    Looks like something wrong with my ADL install


  • | Tip null

    That’s kewl man! Good job and thank you ahy!

    i5… You are talking about the GPU miner obviously but your making some tweaks to it to run smoother on i5’s?

    That’s actually a great idea as most gpu rigs don’t run processors much more than that!

    Howto

    Getting started with gpuminer

    3. Run cgminer

    • run 'cgminer -o http://: -O :

    Hi all.

    The command line on the first post instructions is incorrect, at least for me on my linux setup. cgminer run command should be :

    cgminer –neoscrypt -o http://: -O :

    Otherwise the miner starts up in scrypt mode. I am running version 3.7.5 - cloned yesterday.

    Cheers

    Dave

    I think you should upgrade to 3.7.4exp.

    Thanks for updating your link in the 2nd post of this thread, 3.7.5 worked and stats started showing up almost instantly here: http://p2pool.maeh.org:10554/static/#

    after I started 3.7.5.

    cgminer –neoscrypt -o http://: -O :

    Otherwise the miner starts up in scrypt mode.

    I thought that was the case…

    I’ll make the change but query Wellenreiter as he was the one who put this together for me.


  • | Tip Alpha Wolf

    Post #2 has version 3.7.5 compiled and working for Windows 7 64bit,

    even tho I think ghostlander updated/edited the link he over looked editing the version number 3.7.1 to 3.7.5.

    or someone did…

    Edit: Some of my first payments coming in from the pool already.

    Hi.

    Can’t seem to get it working on my main linux mining machine (AMD processor, 1x Saphire 7970, 1xMSI R9 280, Ubuntu 14.04, Catalyst 14.4).

    export GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100
    ./cgminer --neoscrypt -o http://p2pool.neoscrypt.de:10554 -u  -p x --verbose -T
    

    Output…

    I will try to play a bit more tomorrow, and also test out the Win build on my 750Ti.

    With the help of avehre I now have a compiled and running windows cgminer 3.75 which shows the GPU temperature and fan speed for AMD GPUS and lets you set those now as command line variables.

    Just going to run it for a little bit and if it looks good will put it up for download


  • Regular Member | Tip tmuir12

    Looks to be running well, you will just need to alter the conf file for your pool and username and if you want to add some other tweaks to it, or the bat file go for it

    Thanks lizhi, looking at your screen shot I can see I’m doing something wrong in compiling 3.75 as mine does not show GPU temperature or fan speed, now to figure out what that is…

    Gpu temperature and fan speed are shown only for Nvidia cards, as far as I know


  • Regular Member | Tip tmuir12

    Gpu temperature and fan speed are shown only for Nvidia cards, as far as I know

    Not any more we fixed that bug tonight, it now works for AMD cards too. 🙂


  • | Tip MrSheep

    Looking good! I am getting around 40 kH/s with a AMD Radeon 7950 so far. Has been running for some hours now and seems to be stable! Good work!


  • | Tip vehre

    Before this gets astray: GPU temp and fan speed are now also shown for Nvidia! They were always available on AMD when the ADL_SDK was found and compiled in. Today we fixed the detection routine for the ADL_SDK so that should be available when installed.

    AMD: GPU temp and fan-speed shown; GPU parameters adjustable

    Nvidia: GPU temp and fan-speed shown; nothing adjustable

    Others: Neither the first nor the latter 🙂


  • | Tip Alpha Wolf

    Seven video cards running right at a hour,

    Nvidia 660Ti 21 kh/s,

    Nvidia 760 22.30 kh/s,

    Nvidia 560M 12.15 kh/s

    2 x AMD R9 270 non x 19.55 kh/s,

    2 x AMD R9 270X 21.5 / 22.15 kh/s

    Seven video cards have about 150K , nice.

    Just to make another point clear too.

    In my above post where I said ‘we fixed that bug tonight’, to be more accurate Vehre fixed the bug, I just provided config logs and tested his changes for him.

    I’m the guy who just knows enough to compile things, not to write the code.

    please post your bin file, i’m on 14.7 and get only hw errors, also 280x card

    280x & 3.7.5 miner testing:

    miner works only with bin file created with 13.xx drivers
    if created with 14.xx u will see double hashspeed and only hw erros

    u can use 14.xx drivers if u have bin file created with 13.xx

    radeon 280x:

    –worksize 256 -g 2 --thread-concurrency 8192 -I 13
