TeamRedMiner TRM 0.10.0: Download Ethash R-mode release for AMD cards

TeamRedMiner TRM 0.10.0: Download Ethash R-mode release for AMD cards


TeamRedMiner TRM 0.10.0 is an optimized miner for AMD GPUs and Xilinx FPGAs created by todxx and kerney666. We decided to release public beta 0.10.0 to collect more user feedback without running automatic updates on mining distributions. The main reason is that we still have some unusual configurations that do not respond properly to the new R mode. When it works as intended, which is about 95-97% of all the installations we tested on, everything works very well. If you are not using the new R mode or are a Windows miner, you still have the benefit of using this new version to overwrite the “smooth power” described below.

What’s new in TRM v0.10.0

TRM v0.10.0 – This R-mode Public Release brings significant performance improvements to select AMD GPUs! Please read the Ethash R-mode setup guide for more information and before enabling. This is a public beta, available only from the download links below.

  • Download links: https://github.com/todxx/teamredminer/releases

Release note:

  • GPU: R-mode introduced. See separate documentation. Suitable for Vegas/VIIs/Navi10/Big Navi.
  • GPU: Smooth power transitions for ethash family algorithms.
  • GPU: Added support for multiple –api_listen and –api_listen2 endpoints (up to 8 in total).
  • FPGA: Fixed crash when > 16 fpgas running in a single miner instance.
  • GPU: added –gpu_sdma=on|off argument for special situations. For example, BC-250 requires –gpu_sdma=off.

This update targets the ethash family of algorithms.

  • Smooth power transitions. This affects all gpu’s as well as windows and linux. It’s basically a (theoretical) stability feature that improves power consumption on a very small scale, keeping the GPU as smooth as possible and the resulting power consumption avoiding PSU slew rate spikes. A nice side effect is that in most cases this also slightly increases the hashrate across all GPUs.
  • R-mode. This is our most advanced work in the mode so far. This is Linux only, like the previous C-mode for Radeon VII. R-mode is applicable to all non-Polaris GPUs. It also requires the setting of special Linux kernel boot options, such as Radeon VII C-mode. R mode will be used by default when the required Linux kernel options are set. A huge difference between the new R mode and previous B/C modes is that R mode doesn’t degrade over time as dag grows. The efficiency improvements on many GPUs are significant. The biggest winners are 5700XT/5700/5600XT. Please(!) read  the R mode setup manual  for more details and before switching to R mode.

How to set up TeamRedMiner

Step 1 – Download the TRM Miner

First, you need to download the software from this GitHub link.

  • https://github.com/todxx/teamredminer/releases

Make sure you select the correct file for your OS. If you are on Linux, download the .tar.gz file, if you are on Windows, download the .zip file.

Step 2 – Set up a batch file for Ethereum

You need to select the correct script file (batch file) depending on the algorithm you want to use for mining. Using the example binance pool .bat file will look like this:

teamredminer.exe -a ethash -o stratum+tcp://ethash.poolbinance.com:8888 -u username1.worker_name -p x														

Step 3 – Launch TimRedMiner

Edit this file (replace the account name username1 with your account name). You can also change the mining URL, i.e. choose another pool. Then save as a batch file .bat if you are on Windows or as a bash file  .sh if you are on Linux.

v0.8.0
Notes

Biggest release in a long time with rewritten ethash cores and new mining modes for all GPU types!

Users are strongly (!) advised to take a few minutes to read the  0.7 to 0.8  migration guide and the new  ethash setup guide  . Basic moments:

  • Polaris: Efficiency and small hash rate increase. Re-introduced B-mode to add hash. B-mode must be enabled with –eth_aggr_mode or –eth_config=Bxxx.
  • Vega 56/64: Significantly improved base core to improve efficiency. A new B-mode that can cut an additional 1-2W over an A-mode core. B-mode must be manually enabled with –eth_config ( –eth_aggr_mode is not applied). The setting numbers have changed – DO NOT keep your old static –eth_config values.
  • Radeon VII: Huge boost thanks to new C-mode, but requires special Linux tweaking. Can now reach speeds up to 100 MHz on most air-cooled VIIs. See setup guide.
  • 5700/5700XT: can reduce power consumption by 8-9W(!) with new B-mode and clk+voltage core voltage reduction. B-mode is now the default mining mode. If you do not reconfigure your clk+voltage core, you will instead see a slight increase in power consumption and will not benefit from the upgrade, so read the migration guide.
  • 5600XT: The new B-mode has a much smaller effect. A-mode remains the default mining mode. See the new setup guide for more details.
  • The dag cache is NOT compatible with the new B/C modes. ETH+ZIL switches have to choose between zero date caching and new mining modes.
  • Ethash 4GB cores are NOT rewritten in this release, performance is the same as in 0.7.x.
  • See the migration guide for a comparison of hashrate and power consumption between 0.7.21 and 0.8.0.

Changes

  • Ethash: core VII rewritten and new C mode with boost feature (see manual).
  • Ethash: Minor Navi core optimization and new B-mode to reduce core clock speed and power.
  • Ethash: Vega core rewritten and new B-mode added to reduce core clock speed and power.
  • Ethash: rewritten Polaris core and new B-mode for slightly better performance.
  • Ethash: Added share processing timeout and Binance pool default value (see –pool_share_limit_ms).
  • Claymore API: Fixed a leak that stopped serving requests after 32k API calls.
  • Claymore API: Password support added (see –cm_api_password).
  • Logging: Added support for log rotation (see –log_rotate).
  • Logging: The log files now contain the miner’s welcome message, so the version is saved.
  • Kawpow: Mining at MiningPoolHub is now working fine even though their seed hash is broken.
  • Fan Control: Added min/max fan speed range (see –fan_control).
  • General: Added an argument to disable filtering for duplicate pci bus IDs (see –allow_dup_bus_ids).

v0.7.22
Notes

  • The NAVI core is being rewritten! During the last month we have been working on new kernels. The first one released is for Navi. The main feature is lower power consumption, the hashrate will remain approximately the same, but somewhat depends on the clock frequency. NOTE: please allow the miner to reconfigure any existing –eth_config arguments for all Navi gpus, the new values ​​will be much lower.
  • The Claymore API is now supported which means you can use EthMan to monitor TRM rigs.

Changes

  • Ethash: core rewritten for Navi. Now it should be more stable and use less power. Vega/Polaris is still in development.
  • General: Again slightly reworked the initialization procedure to address an issue with some rigs that work better on <= 0.7.18 than >= 0.7.19.
  • General: Added Claymore compatible API, see –cm_api_listen option.

v0.7.21
Notes

. A quick release fixing situations where Ethash with a limited 4GB DAG was crashing after 5-10 minutes when running at 4078-4080MB.
Changes

  • Ethash: Increased the chance that a high (4078-4080MB) 4GB ethash will be stable over time.

v0.7.20
Notes

ETH is now approaching the death of 4GB with the upcoming transition to epoch 382. TRM was the first miner to add support for 4GB GPU mining with partial DAG, here it’s called “advanced mining”. However, it always required manual tuning. This release adds a conservative default limit of 4072 MB for DAG storage on a 4 GB GPU to run the miner ready. For maximum performance, miners are still encouraged to manually tune their rigs with the –eth_4g_max_alloc argument. Most rigs are stable at a higher value than 4072, which is of great importance for the upcoming epochs of ETH.

For more detailed instructions, our Ethash 4GB manual has also been updated and is available at https://github.com/todxx/teamredminer/blob/master/doc/ETHASH_4GB_HOWTO.txt
Changes

  • Ethash: Added default 4GB DAG allocation limit of 4072MB (see –eth_4g_max_alloc).
  • Ethash: fix crash when using –eth_dag_cache on 4GB GPU.

v0.7.19
Notes

  • Added a list of high scores for Ethash solo miners, use –high_score to enable.
  • Single Ethash buffer for some power savings. Only available in the latest drivers and in theory should always be an improvement. It has not yet been tested to be 100% stable and thus is not the default in this version. Enable the –eth_dag_buf=A option to check.
  • The GPU miner initialization procedure has been rewritten. The initialization procedure should hopefully be much more stable now, especially on Navis in general and even more so on the 5600(XT).

Changes

  • General: Added adjustable ratio support for quota and load_balance pool strategies (see –pool_ratio).
  • General: The miner initialization procedure has been rewritten so that it is generally more stable.
  • General: Fixed an issue where blocking output could cause mining to stop.
  • General: Reduced the size of the main binary.
  • Ethash: Re-introduced single DAG buffer support for latest drivers to allow large single resource allocation (see –eth_dag_buf).
  • Ethash: Added a list of the 15 highest value stocks found since launch (see –high_score).
  • Ethash: Minor improvements in keeping the GPU busy when switching epochs.
  • Ethash: Fixed a bug that caused deadlocks in rare cases.
  • Ethash: fix – dag cache was not enabled for 4GB GPU.

v0.7.18
Notes

  • Added support for ETC fork. Run with “-a etchash” for easier support, see “–eth_variant_mode” in the help for more information.
  • ETH+ZIL miners: add “–eth_dag_cache=0” to use the second dag cache and pre-build epoch 0 immediately on miner startup.
  • Ethash miners rely on overclocking and wobble for stability: these settings have been disabled by default. Now they need to be enabled with –eth_ramp_up and –eth_stagger. While helping some settings, these settings caused increased instability in others, making it difficult to choose a good default mode.

Changes

  • Added etchash support (see etchash algorithm and –eth_variant_mode).
  • Added support for dag cache, mainly for eth+zil mining (see –eth_dag_cache).
  • Fixed hex parsing in on/off submenu, can now work with >= 10 GPUs.
  • Changed default value for ethash ramp and stagger to false (see –eth_ramp_up and –eth_stagger).
  • Added check for broken win settings with duplicate platforms and/or opencl devices.

v0.7.17
Changes

  • BETA: Added fan control, see –help or USAGE.txt. Enable with –fan_control.
  • Fixed a deadlock bug that could occur when using multiple pools with a failover strategy.
  • Added the ability to not submit stale shares (see –no_stale_submit).
  • Added watchdog check for early hangs on GPU initialization.
  • Added example watchdog scripts for win/linux.

v0.7.16
Notes

BETA RELEASE – Minor fixes for the new Turtlecoin chukwa2 algorithm.
Changes

  • Chukwa2: Fixed core loading for Radeon VII GPUs.
  • Chukwa2: fixed memory size for 2GB GPU.

v0.7.16b
Notes

BETA RELEASE – adds a new Turtlecoin chukwa2 algorithm. Not tested as rigorously as other versions. Only use to fork Turtlecoin.
NOTE. Navi GPUs are currently NOT supported on chukwa2. Support will be added if there is sufficient interest.
Changes

  • Added algorithm trtl_chukwa2 for Turtlecoin fork 10/22/2020.

v0.7.15
Notes

Release with minor fixes.
Changes

  • Ethash: fixed ZIL (epoch 0) mining bug on 4GB GPU (bug introduced in 0.7.14).
  • Ethash: reverted to 0.7.10 kernels for stability purposes, except for ROCm-based installations.


Notes  for v0.7.14

This release completes our work on 4GB GPU mining ethash. Linux 4GB confirmed for mining up to and including epoch 381 on drivers 18.50/19.30/19.50/20.10. After that, we added support for advanced mining from epoch 382 and up. Advanced mining is a compromise between hashrate and the ability to mine at all, the GPU will lose additional hashrate for each additional epoch. See the Linux section in the ETHASH_4GB_HOWTO.txt file for more information and instructions.
Changes

  • Ethash: Proven Linux support for 4GB GPUs up to and including epoch 381.
  • Ethash: Added support for 4GB extended mining from epoch 382 and up.

v0.7.11
Notes

  • Ethash additions: GH difference print (always on), hashrate watchdog (see –eth_hashwatch).
  • Improved debugging support: –long_timestamps, –pool_debug.
  • We have found certain combinations of motherboard and bios that, due to kernel and/or driver bugs, have problems with the first or last GPU in the installs. If you’re seeing excessive hardware errors reported on a single GPU and switching between GPUs still always causes errors on the first or last GPU, try using –eth_dag_alloc_patch.

Changes

  • Added Linux DAG distribution patch for certain mobo/bios combinations (see –eth_dag_alloc_patch).

  • Disabled compute mode checks for non-Polaris GPUs.

v0.7.10
Notes

  • Ethash 4GB installations, especially on win,  should  use –eth_alloc_epoch=N where N is the maximum epoch the GPU can allocate. This will avoid problems with DAG redistribution.
  • For Navi rigs having trouble mining eth+zil or Nicehash with frequent DAG switching, try using –eth_dag_slowdown=9.

Changes

  • Added default log file name (trm_<algo>_<yyyymmdd_hhmmss>.log)
  • Added forced initial allocated ethash epoch ( –eth_alloc_epoch=N ). Note: HIGHLY recommended for 4 GB installations.
  • Added ethash family DAG build slowdown configuration (-eth_dag_slowdown=N, default value 4).
  • Added ethash family DAG assembly staggering between GPUs (disable with –eth_no_stagger).
  • Added ethash family ramp up (disabled with –eth_no_ramp_up).
  • Added option to force dev fee region detection (see –dev_location).
  • Added MTP for Navi gpu.
  • Added MTP overclocking after site recovery.
  • Fixed error printouts when the watchdog script fails on Linux.
  • Statistics: Now shows more hours and timings, and adds GPU state to hashrate fingerprints (see –short_stats to disable).
  • Added checks and enable compute mode and disable crossfire on Windows (see –enable_compute).
