Microsoft Windows 10 went through a really big update in May, and have been rolling it out to new devices over the past couple of months. Now, if you mine on Windows, you probably have already figured out that it’s nearly impossible to completely prevent updates that could possibly screw up your rig.
After fending off any change to my maxed out setup since August of 2017, I decided to spice it up a bit and try and setup an equally stable and reliable mining setup, but with the latest software. Windows 1903, combined with AMD Drivers from just a few days ago for my RX480’s.
Here’s what i’ve found:
Nearly all of the hackarounds that I implemented 2 years ago for my 4gb AMD cards clocking in at a stable 29.5mh/s with a 6 GPU setup with average temps in the low 70’s©, pulling right at 1000w at the wall have been pretty much built into today’s current software.
There’s still some registry tweaks, and vbios timing adjustments partnered with OC software to pull THOSE speeds. But, a trimmed down 1903, with new #amd drivers set to compute mode, and the latest #claymore seem to require less effort.
What has your experience been mining under current software/hardware? Oh… and a follow up to that.
Why is it that you mine now that the “hype” isn’t what it used to be?
I love doing it, and I don’t plan to stop. It’s my very own #dca strategy that paid for itself 2 years ago. So why not just keep chugging along?
