MinerOS News. Corrections and system improvements. Miner update and more.

* display current --lhr_tune value and current kernel in statistics table
⛏ lolMiner v1.33
* complete rework of LHR semi-unlock feature: 
    - better performance of LHR semi-unlock 
    - automatically detected LHR GPUs option --mode not needed anymore 
    - option --lhrtune has now default value of auto for an automatic tuning;
* other changes and bug fixes, see miner release notes for full details
* recommended driver for LHR v2: 470.74 
⛏ CPUminer-Opt-JayDDee v3.18.0
* complete rewrite of Scrypt code: 
    - up to 50% increase in hashrate 
    - support AVX512 & SHA support for SHA256
* improved stale share handling for all algorithms
* other improvements and bug fixes

⛏ T-Rex v0.23.1
* removed telnet API
* multiple bug fixes
⛏ GMiner v2.69 
* added auto-tune for LHR GPUs, enabled by default, to disable pass --lhr_autotune 0
* increased reconnect tries on connection loss --reconnect_count
⛏ NanoMiner v3.3.12
* added support verthash for AMD GPUs
* fixed issues on kawpow with Nvidia driver v470.57
* reduced stale shares on kawpow
* fixed miner crush when started with some AMD GCN3 and older GPUs
⛏ NBMiner v39.5
* added ability mining ergo LHR mode for mining ERGO, enable it by manually adding lhr option
    - same as LHR mode in ethash, lhr value represents expected hashrate to reach value percent of non-LHR GPU's hashrate, supports comma-seperated list to indicate lhr value for each GPU, and "lhr": "-1" to disable.
    - for GPUs with Hynix GDDR6 memory, LHR mode is not recommended for the poor performance.
    - for GPUs with non-Hynix GDDR6 memory, e.g. 3060 3060ti 3070, start trying with "lhr": "85"
    - for GPUs with GDDR6X memory, e.g. 3070ti 3080 3080ti, start trying with "lhr": "100"
    - when mining lock is detected during ERGO mining, miner will automatically decrease lhr value by 0.5, and continue mining. max decrease times is 10, which sums to 5.0 
* optimized power consumption on Nvidia GPUs while mining ERGO
⛏ XMRig v6.15.1 
* minor fixes

2021-09-26 16:30:57

⛏ T-Rex v0.22.1
* added partial LHR unlock functionality for 30xx cards for ethash algorithm, see LHR manual for details
* added firopow algorithm for upcoming FIRO hardfork
* added CPU share validation functionality for kawpow and all progpow-like algorithms
* bug fixes: 
    - fixed CPU share validation on autolykos2
    - fixed switching to failover pools: it takes too long
    - fixed some stability issues
⛏ NBMiner v39.4
* fixed hashrate issues on octopus algo

2021-09-22 10:26:53

⛏ NBMiner v39.3
* implemented new ethash low power LHR mode, add -lhr-mode option: 
    -lhr-mode 2 is the default LHR mode, which is the new lower power mode 
    -lhr-mode 1 changes LHR mode to old version, which is the same as v39.2 
    -lhr-mode 1 is suitable for only power limit bounded GPU, can achieve higher hashrate than mode 2 
    -lhr-mode 2 is able to achieve lower average power and temperature. especially suitable for GPUs with gddr6x e.g.3070ti, 3080, 3080ti: power consumption is fluctuating in this mode, better be used with locked core clock;
* option -lhr support decimal value; 
* for LHR GPUs, when mining lock is detected, miner will automatically decrease -lhr value by 0.1, and continue mining. max decrease times is 10, which sums to 1.0; 
* fixed issue with higher CPU usage when shares validation on CPU is disabled.
⛏ NanoMiner v3.3.11
* fixed invalid ETH shares issue on some Nvidia RTX30xx

What's new?

Gminer v2.67 (partial LHR cards unlock without additional power consumption; use --lhr 1 to force enable unlock for RTX 3060 V1; use --lhr_tune1 / lhr_tune2 to tune unlock parameters, positive values increase performance, negative values decrease probability of lock; miner requires latest Nvidia drivers 470, use nv_update command)
lolMiner v1.32 (Beta Feature: added RTX 3000 series semi-unlock for LHR v2 cards giving up to 30% more performance then in locked state. Use --mode LHR2 to call it and --mode LHR1 for 3060 LHR1 cards. Also added a low power LHR mode for V2 cards --mode LHRLP. Recommended drivers for LHR2 and LHRLP: 470.63.01 or 465; improved performance of RTX 3060 LHR v1 semi-unlock by 2-3% depending on configuration - at same low consumption; added detection of the "fan glitch" for RTX 3000 LHR cards: when the glitch is detected, the GPUs will leave the special LHR modes automatically; significantly improved Ergo performance on GCN Gen 1 GPUs, e.g. HD 7970, R9 280, R7 370; added Ergo kernels for Pitcairn GPUs; added support for extra nonce subscription on Ergo stratum - this will cause less reconnects on Nicehash; Bug fixes: fixed an issue causing "invalid" shares on Ethash when the pool makes intensive use of variable difficulty. e.g. Nicehash; fixed an issue that might cause the epoch to update too late when doing Eth + Zil dual stratum; fixed an issue causing too much stale or very late shares in Ergo; updated complete network stack to newer libraries - for more stability; a lot of internal re-structuring and fixes)
WildRig-Multi v0.29.0 (implemented support of AMD RDNA 2 GPUs: RX 6x00 series)
