Configuring AMD Radeon Vega 56 / Vega 64
Configuring AMD Radeon Vega 56 / Vega 64 – This guide summarizes what I have found that works and integrates, step by step, the details that you also need to get. In many cases, this information does not come from me. However, I did not find any links with all the links that worked for me. Here are all the details in one place. Good luck
1) Plug 1 Vega 56/64 into the PCI-Express X4 or X16 slot without risers directly into the motherboard.
2) Format the HDD / SSD with Windows and install Windows 10 (this is important! Zero Windows, which was installed on the card Nvidia adds hemorrhoids. Only a clean installation from scratch.
3) We start the system.
3.1) Install this program — https://miningclub.info/resources/vykljuchaem-lishnee-v-windows-10.157/ kill updates, etc.
3.2) Increase the amount of virtual memory
Control Panel / System and Security / Advanced System Settings / Advanced
Click on the button Options> Performance Options> Advanced>
We see the inscription virtual memory and click Change, indicate 15 gigabytes per veg. (If there is not so much memory, you can also put 8 gigs on the card, experienced from the forum say and it works)
I have 4 of them, so we will put 60,000 mb. Original Size 59000 – Maximum Size 60,000 My Case Original size 32000 – Maximum size 32000 – should also work
4) In the control panel, change the power settings Power / Change circuit settings Turn off display: Never Put your computer to sleep: Never Click Save Changes.
5) Download Blockchain drivers from the official AMD website: https://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-ar…eta-for-Blockchain-Compute-Release-Notes.aspx

6) Install the driver and all their components and wait for now the card will calm down. During installation, do not touch or pull anything, under the end of the installation, the program will offer a reboot, usually by clicking on it can also hang. Feel free to put the system into reboot.
7) After installing the drivers, click on Games> Global Settings> we will have two columns 1 – Global Graphics (Radeon RX Vega) 2 – Global Wattman (Radeon Rx Vega) in the first column we need to click on the HBCC Memory Segment button and put it in the on position. And then click apply. Driver will go to reboot. Here is an important nuance. Sometimes the checkmark is already on, but HBCC is actually disabled. AMD is aware of this problem and, in principle, suggest not paying attention to it, that is, if HBCC is turned on and hashrate is small then just move the slider to the off position and oh the miracle of HBCC will actually work.
then go to 2 – Global Wattman (Radeon Rx Vega) and do not touch anything there except the cooler settings. SPEED (RPM) Manually We put the slider in the on position and raise the cooler speed. This is necessary so that at the first start of the miner the card does not heat up to 78 degrees and does not begin to smoke with gaskets. 8) Run the miner. In my case, it is cast_xmr. Example batch file:
cast_xmr-vega -S xmr-eu.dwarfpool.com:8100 -u 47BCGhAqrj8ZN5UQgLkW7x5qx7vrYQwMwHDiPsNEhQdMCbnC6UGYzP8GccsHPAUffN4c8NLJoU4bBMp2sjiXuwTx59gJZ7J -G 0 %*
and look at the hashrate metrics there should be 1500-1900 depending on the map. If the values are smaller, turn off the miner and go to the driver to enable / disable HBCC Memory Segment. Leave the miner to work like this for 15-20 minutes.
9) Turn off the miner via the q button. If you crave a cross in the batch file, there is a chance somewhere around 20 percent that the drivers will fall off (not very good for us)
10) We transfer the card to the riser and once again launch the miner. If everything is ok, then we connect the second card. We connect the card to a separate braid and a riser to a separate braid. This is not 1050, she is very moody in stock. 2 per braid = hemorrhoids.
IMPORTANT! Do not connect 3-4 cards at once, from boxes they load PSU hard and the whole system flies into perpetual reboot or crashes the driver. AMD knows this problem and promises to fix it.
When a second card is connected, a rectangle will appear in the drivers AMD CrossFire it should be in the Off position. (Disconnected i.e.) Usually, if you turn it on one by one, it is immediately turned off, if not, turn it off. Now we have 4 columns, respectively, each map has its own settings and Wattman. We repeat paragraphs 8 and 9. Having previously added the following map to the batch file in paragraph -G 0,1, make changes.
11) Run the miner. And let’s go to Wattman We set -10 for the core and -5 for power and leave the memory at standard values (800). By as the miner works, every minute we roll -5 on the core and -1 on nutrition until we have a value of -20 core – 10 Limit power consumption (%). Immediately set the parameters -30 / 950 / -10 I do not recommend because sometimes it goes into artifacts and the devil would understand why. After After we have recorded local success, we do the same with memory. Here the step may be different. I throw 20, until it turns out 940. Somewhere I’m leaving stock because Hynix is far from Samsung (well, you understand, as Valera says)
12) If there are 3 and 4 cards, we add them also in turn and repeat the whole process. Sometimes it looks funny, 4 cards in the global the schedule for three HBCC is disabled for one is enabled while it actually works on all maps.
13) Run the miner and enjoy stable operation. At connecting 2 or more cards sometimes hashes the hashrate. I get somewhere 1650-1900 h / s per second depending on the map. And 1 error for 20 000 ball somewhere. Everything has been working non-stop for a week. Consumption where then 220-240 per card.
