V. 6.1 – ETH mining on AMD cards

by

Version 6.1 of our GUI miner is released. New functionality has been added for AMD cards: now you can mine Ethereum if your card supports OpenCL 1.1 or later and all the CryptoNote coins with OpenCL starting from 1.2. Check all the improvements we’ve made in this post!

New possibilities for your AMD cards

 

Ethereum mining

MinerGate has recently released the feature of Ethereum mining for CPUs and NVidia GPUs. Now AMD cards are joining in!  If your card supports OpenCL 1.1 and later and has more than 2 GB RAM, just choose the desired intensity and start making profit with one of the leading cryptocurrencies.

What’s more, now you can easily connect 2 cards of different brands to reach the maximum capacity for your hardware. Create your mining rig with multiple cards based on our convenient GUI miner and manage the mining capacity straight from the app.

If you prefer console interface, don’t miss our guide for mining on MinerGate with official Ethereum client ethminer.

 

Nvidia and AMD cards

 

CryptoNote on OpenCL 1.2

GPU mining no longer works for any coins on my MSI GE72 2QE Apache laptop running Windows 10. GPU is GTX965m

Also BSOD on Windows 10 on my custom built desktop, Intel i7 4790k and GTX 970 gpu with 32gb RAM. Happens consistently when I install and start Minergate v6.0 or v6.1. Puts computer into restart loop until I start Windows in safe mode and uninstall Minergate.

Love the software when it works and keep up the good work.

Hi, v6.1 is mining with my fiji nvidia Card at around 15-18 MH/s, but on
Web Interface its only showing CPU Minig Power (~500 KH/s) or OFFLINE when I turn CPU Mining off while GPU Mining still at 15-18 MH/s.

Hello! We are sorry to hear this. Try deleting the DAG file and restarting ETH mining. Please report the issue to support@minergate.com if it doesn’t help.
The DAG file can be found in the folder C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Ethash on Windows.

I am having an issue of returning only bad shares with Ethereum. I ran it for approximately 8 hours on the desktop app at ~100 kH/s and it returned 2,282 bad shares and 0 good shares. Is 100 kH/s too slow?

Minergate doesn’t send ether mined with GPU (R9 380 4GB), just CPU updated on Webinterface. This also happens with console GPU mining. Mining with etherminer.exe is the same! This is a big issue guys!

mingerate-cli detected as malware by windows 10 and deleted. Could you please look into this issue! Thanks

Hi I can mine cpu for etherium and I have a nvidia GTX 670MX card that hasn’t set up with MinerGate for mining, though I know it’s possible because GUIMiner works with it. Please help set me up with GPU mining for eth or any other crypto currency. Running Windows 7. Thanks. :)

After around 5 minutes of XMR GPU mining, the miner stopped. Checked the log and found this:

[21.06.2016 16:10] [ info] GPU: Initializing Cryptonote CUDA miner…
[21.06.2016 16:10] [error] GPU: cudaMemGetInfo error: all CUDA-capable devices are busy or unavailable
[21.06.2016 16:10] [error] GPU: 1:all CUDA-capable devices are busy or unavailable

What happened and how can I fix this? Thanks.

Hi, I have a new RX480 GPU and Minergate 6.2. I’m trying to mine ETH. The GPU mining shows 19.5 MH/s but the ‘last’ shares is showing NEVER. Only CPU is working (but obviously slowly). I’ve deleted the DAG and same issue. I Also note that looking at the dashboard it isn’t showing ANY activity on the YOU H/S section, even though the GPU is working and the ETH area is green. Please help. Thank!

Minergate crashes everytime i try to mine with my gpu (I have a AMD Radeon R5-235 2gb gpu) and when i try to mine any other currency with gpu it just doesnt work.. But with ETH it crashes, following an CMD screen that is blank. And then “shutdown”

Is this a normal issue?

Hi, my GPU won’t work with the Windows 10 Minergate GUI.

I’m using a PowerColor AMD 250 2GB DDR3 graphics card.

CPU works fine.

Please help!

Hello! Windows 10 has new drivers, which sometimes can be in conflict with the card if you use it for mining. An advice we can give is to downgrade the drivers of your GPU.

im running mac pro 2011 with AMD Radeon HD 6490M. but minegate isn’t detecting the GPU and runs only with the CPU. how to get this running on the GPU instead?

I am running Win 10 with GTX 980ti and I can only mine with CPU. The GPU is showing this in the log file:
GPU: cudaMemGetInfo error: all CUDA-capable devices are busy or unavailable
GPU: 1:all CUDA-capable devices are busy or unavailable
