This release supports a number of algorithms optimized for AMD GCN GPUs (ethash, kawpow, nimiq, lyra2z, phi2, lyra2rev3, x16r, x16rv2, x16s, x16rt, MTP, cuckarood29, cuckatoo31, chukwa-512, cryptonight R8, many a cryptonight R8 other cryptography options).
This is an optimized miner for AMD graphics cards only. The miner is configured only through a batch file (file with the .bat extension). You do not need to configure the configuration (there is auto-tuning).
teamredminer.exe– indicates which application will be launched. This file must be in the same folder as the .bat file
-a kawpow– we indicate the algorithm for mining. For Ravencoin, we indicated cnr, and for example, for Zcoin, we would indicate mtp
us.rvn.minermore.comafter long construction
-o stratum+tcp://we indicate the pool address
:4501– specifying the pool address, put a colon and write the pool port. The address and port can be found on the pool itself. Usually under Get Started or Help
-u RKAeArXkWLNERjWo5YF3R1xFnYCwKf11sX– we indicate the wallet to which mining will go. In our case, this is Ravencoin.
-p x– the p command means password. The minermore pool (as well as 90% of all pools) does not require a password, so we write x
pause– optional command. It is only needed so that the program does not immediately close in case of any error, but displays it.
A ready-made example (do not forget to change the wallet to yours!)
teamredminer.exe -a kawpow -o stratum+tcp://us.rvn.minermore.com:4501 -u RKAeArXkWLNERjWo5YF3R1xFnYCwKf11sX.trmtest -p x pause
This is an optimized miner for AMD GPUs created by todxx and kerney666.

Below is a list of mining operating systems and management software that have built-in support for teamredminer:
This miner supports a range of algorithms. Please see the list below for details. The miner is configured via command line only, please run with the –help option to print a short help message for how to use the command line options.
This miner includes the following algorithms and their respective dev fees:
|Ethash on Polaris GPUs||0.75%|
|Ethash on all other GPUs||1.0%|
|Cryptonight v8 upx2||2.5%|
|Cryptonight v8 turtle||2.5%|
|Cryptonight v8 half||2.5%|
|Cryptonight v8 double||2.5%|
|Cryptonight v8 rwz||2.5%|
GPUs supported and tested:
- Navi – RX 5700(XT)/5600(XT)/5500(XT) for supported algos in the table below.
- Vega – RX Vega 64/56, Vega FE, Radeon VII (Vega 2)
- Polaris – RX 580/480/570/470/560/460/550
Some algorithms are not supported on some GPU architectures and/or drivers. Below is the compatiblity table:
|Cryptonight v8 upx2||N||L||L|
|Cryptonight v8 turtle||N||L||L|
|Cryptonight v8 half||N||L||L|
|Cryptonight v8 double||N||L||L|
|Cryptonight v8 rwz||N||L||L|
- Y = Supported
- N = Not supported
- L = Limited support: algos are supported on windows and linux with amdgpu-pro drivers, not supported on ROCm drivers.
The miner reports GPU hash rates every 30 seconds. These are the full GPU hash rates before dev fee deduction (your pool hashrate will be slightly lower).
The miner includes a read-only api based on the sgminer-5.5 API. Both the json and text formats are supported. For more details, we refer to the sgminer api documentation.
For reporting bugs and/or for features requests, please open an issue on this project’s github
For example command lines please see the batch/shell scripts in the miner download packages. For command line options see the
Changes in v0.7.15
Small bugfix release.
- Ethash: fixed bug for ZIL (epoch 0) mining on 4GB gpus (bug appeared in 0.7.14).
- Ethash: reverted to v0.7.10 kernels for stability purposes except for ROCm-based rigs.
Changes in v0.7.14
This release wraps up our work for 4GB gpus mining ethash. Linux 4GB are verified to mine up to and including epoch 381 on drivers 18.50/19.30/19.50/20.10. After that, we have added support for extended mining from epoch 382 and up. Extended mining is a trade-off between hashrate and being able to mine at all, gpus will lose additional hashrate for every extra epoch. Please see the Linux section in the ETHASH_4GB_HOWTO.txt for more details and instructions.
- Ethash: verified Linux support for 4GB gpus up to and including epoch 381.
- Ethash: added support for extended 4GB mining from epoch 382 and up.
- Kawpow: cleaned up false hw errs for some block heights.
Changes in v0.7.13
- Windows user with 4GB rigs – see the new guide ETHASH_4GB_HOWTO.txt for instructions.
- Added better default Windows dag allocation strategy on 4GB gpus.
- Added experimental support for resetting gpus before mining (Windows only).
- Added argument for manual adjustment of 4GB dag allocation (see –eth_4g_alloc_adjust=X,Y,Z,…).
- Added protection against broken dev servers with additional random server selection mechanism.
Changes in v0.7.12
- Bugfix release: v0.7.11 could crash with rejected ethash shares.
- Fixed print format bug on ethash rejected shares.
Changes in v0.7.11
- Ethash additions: printing share diff in GH (always enabled), hashrate watchdog (see –eth_hashwatch).
- Better debug support: –long_timestamps, –pool_debug.
- We’ve found certain motherboard/bios combinations that due to kernel and/or driver bugs have issues with the first or last gpu in rigs. If you see excessive hw errors reported on a single gpu, and switching around gpus still always generates errors in the first or last gpu, try using –eth_dag_alloc_patch.
- Added DAG allocation patch under linux for certain mobo/bios combinations (see –eth_dag_alloc_patch).
- Added ethash hashrate watchdog (see –eth_hashwatch).
- Added ethash abort mechanism for Vegas on ROCm (see –eth_direct_abort). Not useful in other contexts.
- Added pool traffic debug (use –pool_debug).
- Added print of share difficulty for ethash family algos. Unit is always GH.
- Added microsec timestamp resolution in logs (use –long_timestamps).
- Regression bug: argon2/chukwa was broken in 0.7.10, now working again.
- Turned off compute mode checks for non-Polaris gpus.
Changes in v0.7.10
- Ethash 4GB rigs, especially on win, should use –eth_alloc_epoch=N with N being the max epoch that the gpus can allocate. This will avoid DAG reallocation issues.
- For Navi rigs having issues with eth+zil or Nicehash mining with frequent DAG switching, try using –eth_dag_slowdown=9.
- Added default log filename (trm__<yyyymmdd_hhmmss>.log)
- Added ethash forced initial allocated epoch ( –eth_alloc_epoch=N). Note: HIGHLY recommended for 4GB rigs.
- Added ethash family DAG build slowdown configuration (–eth_dag_slowdown=N, default value 4).
- Added ethash family DAG build staggering across gpus (disable with –eth_no_stagger).
- Added ethash family intensity ramp-up (disable with –eth_no_ramp_up).
- Added option for forcing dev fee region (see –dev_location).
- Added MTP for Navi gpus.
- Added MTP ramp-up after pad rebuild.
- Fixed error printouts on failed watchdog script execution on Linux.
- Stats: now shows more clocks and temps, and also adds gpu state in hashrate prints (see –short_stats to disable).
- Added checks for and enabling compute mode and disabling crossfire on Windows (see –enable_compute).
Changes in v0.7.9
- Fixes for mixed rig mining on Linux.
- Added –eth_epoch argument for easier epoch testing.
- Added –eth_aggr_mode for automatic aggressive ‘B’ mode on Polaris 8GB gpus.
- Added –watchdog_disable argument.
Changes in v0.7.8
- Upgrade for the upcoming Haven hard fork (July 20, 2020).
- Tiny Nimiq optimizations (1-2% max, mostly Vega and Navi).
