The latest SRBMiner-MULTI CPU and AMD GPU Miner version 0.4.5 adds support for the RandomX-based RandomEpic algorithm used by the Epic Cash (EPIC) crypto project for both solo and pool mining. There are also some performance improvements for the RandomX algorithm for CPUs as well as for Ethash and Ubqhash on AMD VEGA GPUs. You also get a number of fixes and new features, the full changelog is included below:
SRBMiner-MULTI CPU & AMD GPU Miner 0.4.5 changelog:
– Added ‘randomepic’ algorithm (EpicCash RandomX) solo/pool
– ‘ethash’ and ‘ubqhash’ algorithm faster ~1.5% on Vega
– ‘RandomX’ algorithm improvements
– Fixed allocation of ‘RandomX’ dataset for 1GB pages (--randomx-use-1gb-pages parameter)
– Fixed an issue with MSR tweaks not being applied correctly
– Lowered ‘minotaur’ algorithm devfee to 2%
– Fixed crashing of ‘minotaur’ algorithm on AVX2 capable cpus
– ‘--send-stales‘ is now set per pool, it accepts true/false. Default is true.
– ‘send_stales’ parameter added to pools config file too
– ‘–gpu-intensity’ option can now be used in combination with auto gpu setup in cmd
– Improved gpu watchdog
– Added temporary parameter ‘--cnpool-bbc-fix‘ which disables workers if job diff >= 50
– Minor bug fixes
SRBMiner-MULTI Miner is a closed source miner available for Linux and Windows, supporting CPU mining algorithms as well as some AMD GPU ones, though we mostly use it for processor mining. The miner has a built-in developer fee of 2.50% for cryptonight_bbc, 2.00% for bl2bsha3 and minotaur, no fee for blake2b and yespowerurx and 0.85% for all others that are supported.
