GMINER 2.78: Added LHR unlock for RTX 3050 on Ethash

GMiner 2.78 added LHR unlock for RTX 3050 on Ethash (standard lhr setting for this card is 58%). Due to its unique development and stability, the miner has become a favorite on Equihash algorithms in just six months. The miner is focused on NVIDIA and AMD platforms and supports most popular algorithms such as: Ethash, ProgPoW, KAWPOW, Equihash, CuckooCycle. GMiner maintains the leading position in mining coins such as Beam, Grin, Cortex, Bitcoin Gold. In 2020, the miner added support for Ethash, ProgPoW and KAWPOW algorithms with high performance relative to competitors.

GMiner was created by a Russian group of specialists in high-performance computing and cryptography. The first version of GMiner was released on September 21, 2018 and was quite warmly received by users. The development team never rests on its laurels and achieves maximum performance of algorithms with minimum power consumption, these are the qualities that distinguish GMiner from its competitors and win the hearts of users.

GMiner features and benefits

  • Watchdog (automatic restart of the miner in case of GPU failure, loss of connection to the pool, miner failure, watchdog is a process-observer of the state of the main systems of the miner, which will restart the miner in case of a failure or freeze);
  • Failover pools (auto connect to failover pool when main pool is unavailable, support for unlimited failover pools, by supporting fallback pools, miner uses fallback pools until connection to main pool is restored)
  • Energy Efficiency Calculator (shows power consumption for each GPU, sol/Watt)
  • SSL connection to the layer (support for secure connections, server certificate verification (optional))
  •  API / Telemerty xGADAvh
  • commission is charged continuously, and not at intervals (like most miners), which positively affects the user’s profitability on PPLNS pools
  • checking the generated DAG, warning when the GPU overclock is very high for Ethash, Etchash, KAWPOW and ProgPoW algorithms , helps to overclock the GPU without errors
  • Checking the total resources of the CPU, warning when the GPU overclock is very high for Ethash, Etchash, KAWPOW and ProgPoW algorithms, helps to overclock the GPU without errors
  • DAG caching, if the GPU has enough memory, DAG files are not recalculated when switching to another algorithm when mining Ethash + Zilliqa or Nicehash, which positively affects the user’s profitability
  • Temperature control and GPU shutdown in case of overheating
  • Mechanism for recovering a lost connection to a pool
  • Informative and readable output of statistics in the form of tables to the console
  • displaying detailed information about each device (temperature, power consumption, cooler load, memory frequency, processor frequency, energy efficiency)
  • parallel output of information to the console and to a file on disk
  • built-in statistics server – remote monitoring of the miner in the browser
  • memory settings for Nvidia GPUs with GDDR5X and GDDR5 memory

How to start mining with GMINER

Step 1 – Download the Miner

Select your release to download: GMINER Official GitHub  ;repository or use website.

Step 2 – Set up the .bat file

In the example of the binance pool, the batcher would look like this:

miner.exe --algo ethash --server --user username1

Step 3 – Launch the GMiner

Now save this file with a .bat extension and double-click it to run it.

Setting up GMINER

This is what the Gminer binary for eth will look like:

miner.exe --algo ethash --server --user username1

To configure the batcnik we need to enter five commands in turn:

  1. miner.exe – name of the program to run. This file must be located in the same folder as the batch file itself.
  2. ethash – specify the algorithm for mining.
  3. ethash.poolbinance .com  – specify the pool. In this example, Binance Pool is used. Read: how to mine on Binance Pool
  4. 8888 – specify the port from the pool. It can be found in the same place as the pool address.
  5. username1 – Simply change username1 to your Binance account name.

Setting up for NiceHash

miner.exe --algo kawpow --server --user 3KMhp4g3m7YWqR4hAPrZsKWbyo7hRBmqvy
  1. kawpow – Specify the mining algorithm
  2. – Specify the server
  3. 3385 – write the port
  4. 3KMhp4g3m7YWqR4hAPrZsKWbyo7hRBmqvy – and wallet. Important! For mining on nicehash, you need to specify a BTC wallet, not the coin you are mining.


--algo or a short synonym for this command -a – indicates the mining algorithm (for example: --algo ethash --algo kawpow--algo cuckatoo32--algo beamhash).

--list_devices – to display a list of available devices for mining.

Unlock LHR

Only Nvidia graphics cards are supported for these commands.

--lhr – Specify the list of LHR modes, separated by a space.

Available values: 0 – auto, 1 – on, 2 – off.

--lhr_tune – a list of LHR setting values, separated by spaces, which means the percentage of the video card unlock.

Available values: 0 – auto, (default); 1-80.

Example: --lhr_tune 72 71 73

--lhr_autotune – Specify the list of LHR autosettings separated by a space. 0 – off, 1 – on.

Example: --lhr_autotune 1 0 1

--lhr_autotune_step – Specify the LHR auto-tuning step size, the default value is 0.1.

Example: lhr_autotune_step 0.2

Parameters dag_mode, safe_dag, dag_limit, kernel, mt, fan, pl, cclock, cvddc, mclock, lock_voltage, lock_cclock, tfan, templimit, templimit_mem, интенсивность, lhr, lhr_tune, lhr_autotune, lhr_mode can be specified once for all devices:

miner --algo ethash --server --user 0x1576999cc34c1c0030f28939444d6ba9cd6919c2.worker1 --kernel 0 --templimit 80 --dag_mode 0

Tfan – fan control

--tfan – specify a list of target temperatures for the fan separated by spaces (0 – ignore), only supported by Windows (ex: --tfan 64 0 69).

--tfan_min – space-separated list of minimum fan speed (0 – ignore) for option --tfan , only supported by Windows (for example: --tfan 30 0 35).

--tfan_max – space-separated list of maximum fan speed (0 – ignore) for option --tfan, only Windows is supported (eg: --tfan 89 0 79).
