Supported GPUs

Tested on:

  • RTX 2070 8GB
  • GTX 1080 Ti 11GB
  • GTX 1080 8GB
  • GTX 1070 Ti 8GB
  • GTX 1070 8GB

Although we did not test miniZ miner on all available GPUs, it is expected to run on all Kepler, Maxwell, Pascal and Turing architectures.

It should work on nvidia mining series: P106-100 and P104-100 GPUs. Previously, a miner asked about support for these cards. Support since December 2018.

If you are having trouble with any of these GPUs, do leave your comment below for support.

    hi as per picture show, this version even more faster crash compare with previous version.
    im using 4 gtx 1070 and 1 1070ti

      Hi solotrade,
      we have been unable to reproduce this error, so it is hard for us to fix it. We are looking into it and we’ll provide a version for you to test soon.
      Can you tell us the minig pool you’re using?
      Thanks for the quick feedback!
      Cheers

      • solotrade says:

        seems like not pool related. im mining using 144_5 older version would crash a day plus, this new version take only 2 hours to crash

        i have gtx 1060 rig that is very stable to using ur miner

        • miniZ says:

          Hi solotrade,
          Only few people have experienced this crash error that we have not been able to reproduce.
          We updated miniZ to v1.0i+, with some modifications. Hopefully this one will fix this.
          If you can, drop us a message telling how it goes.
          Thank you!
          Cheers

    gives an error of 1060 6 GB and 6 * 1050 ti

    • miniZ says:

      Hi kaban, could you give more details? What is the error? Which miniZ version are you using? Are you using Windows or Linux? Thank you. Cheers

      • kaban says:

        windows 7 64bit, miniZ v.1.0i, https://ibb.co/3cnvsPQ

        • miniZ says:

          Hi kaban, thanks for the screenshot.
          You need to increase pagefile. From what we could see you seem to have 2 1050Ti and 2 1060 6GB, is this correct?
          On Windows to use all memory of your GPUs you must increase the page file to have ~20GB. For miniZ it may work with 12 GB, but if you have enough space go with at least 20 GB.

          A suggestion for you to have a cleaner console: use the --nocolor option. You can try and use another console. A few months ago, we tried ConEmu terminal emulator and it worked fine. There are others available, which should also work OK.
          We mentioned this @ https://miniz.ch/usage/

          Cheers

    I tried to change EWBF to minerZ on my rig
    But I see message: Number of CUDA devices found: 0
    No devices selected, exiting…

    My rig info:

    hi, i am now back to report that miner is stable with 1070 and 1070ti
    7 days 19min at the moment i report!
    thanks
    using 1.0i +

    Hi there, I have a rig with 6x 1080ti and 2x titan xp. With version v1.2m, the titan xp are getting 78 sol at 70% power, while the 1080ti are getting 88 sol at 70% power. Seems like the miniz miner is not optimized for the Tian xp?

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Ben,
      Thanks for letting us know. It is not optimized out of the box for that GPU.

      Probably you can get good hashrates by running miniZ with both --f11=1 and --mode=8 (or 7). We think this may improve performance.
      Feel free to try other values with --mode. You can try: 0,1,2,3,6,7, or 8. It will be interesting to know if any of these gives better performance.

      Let us know how it goes.
      Cheers

      • Ben says:

        Hi there, I tried mode 0 to 8, nothing has change for the titan xp. Still the same sol. But they do affect the performance for the 1080ti. However, my rig performed best without using –f11=1 and -mode. Hopefully on the next update you can make some progress on the titans =)

        • miniZ says:

          Hi Ben,
          thanks for the feedback.

          When you run miniZ without --mode, the console output starts with some information about the GPUs? Can you copy here that part?
          Something like this:
          Number of CUDA devices found: 4
          miniZ,144,5[3]: Selecting GPU#0 GeForce GT 710
          miniZ,144,5[7]: Selecting GPU#1 GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
          miniZ,144,5[1]: Selecting GPU#3 GeForce GTX 1070 Ti
          miniZ,144,5[3]: Selecting GPU#2 GeForce GTX 1050

          And, running miniZ with --mode=8 (for ex), could you paste here that same bit of information?

          Also, could you send us the output of running miniZ with just -ci? (Just run miniZ -ci)
          This may help us understand better the Titan xp 🙂
          Cheers

    I had upgraded my video card driver from v397 to the latest v419, and running the cuda 10 version of the miniz v12m. This time, the –f11-1 and mode=8 is healping the titan xp to do 84 sol, which is on par with the other 1080ti. I have a feeling that the extra cuda cores the titan has over the 1080ti is not being use? here is the copy and paste from my computer.

      Hi Ben,
      thanks for the information.

      We noticed that you have a typo on your command line: --f11-1. It should be --f11=1. --f11-1 is ignored by miniZ.
      It might worth to check it out. We suspect that, besides --mode-8, using --f11=1 might be beneficial for the Titan XP.

      Also, C:\miniz>miniz.exe --ci will just start the miner.
      Could you try again miniZ.exe -ci (one dash) and post it here? This will not start the miner, just lists GPUs information.

      We’ll do our best in trying to get the best performance out of Titan XP 🙂
      Cheers

            Hi there, I figure that the titans are running at lower clock speeds when using –f11=1 –mode=8, so I realized the 70% power might not be the most optimal power to feed the card to it best perfomance/w. Hence, I increase the power to 82%, and here you go.

              Hi Ben,
              Thank you for reporting all these details about the Titan Xp.
              On power saving it may be worth trying --f11=0 --mode=7 (combined).
              If you manage to find something interesting do let us know. It would be much appreciated. 🙂

          Hi greg,
          thanks a lot for the information.
          For now your Titan Black should be able to mine Beam with miniZ version v1.3n5, CUDA 8. We will fix this for the next version.
          If it works, could you let us know what the hashrate is?
          You can also try and add --mode2 n --mode3 n option with n=1,2,4,6,7,9, and see which value mode give the best hashrate. This will apply mode n to GPU2 and GPU3 (2 and 3 refer to your Titan Black, we will document this better in our website soon).
          Could you also let us know which mode value is the best for the Titan? This can help us optimize miniZ for that GPU.

              Hi greg,
              it is hard for us to get that error. If you run miniZ with just one Titan Black, or just one 1080, does it work?
              You can select GPU with -cd option. (Leave the GPUs on board and select with -cd option).
              Could you paste here the miniZ output, from the beginning (detects GPUs) until it exits?
              Thanks!

    May I ask why miniZ consumes a significant amount (17%) of CPU power? Isn’t miniZ a GPU-only miner? I’m trying to run xmrig for CPU-only mining (Ryzen 3600) and I get lower CPU hashrates while miniZ is running.

    Just tried gminer and it consumes zero CPU! How come? I’d love to use miniZ since it’s a bit more efficient, but you need to do something about people who want to use their CPU for other mining apps/algos.

          It is also specific to BeamHashII.

    hi im totally newbie on this…

    im using miniZ 1.5s.. GeForce GTX 1050 Ti …is there any problem with my parameters??any advice to improve the performance??

    • miniZ says:

      Hi matthew wong,

      Thank you for using miniZ.

      Your values for the 1050 Ti, mining Aion, are not substantially different from ours (see: https://miniz.ch/2109-2/).

      However, you may be able to improve the speed a little if you:
      1. Lower the temperature (increase fan speed for example);
      2. Increase the clocks (overclocking GPU). For this you can use for example MSI Afterburner software.

      In the tables (see: https://miniz.ch/2109-2/) you can see some OC values we tried:

      1. “Overclock” (right side in Table 1) sets power limit to max allowed.
      Usually this is not the most efficient (Sol/W) since is draws more energy, even though it tends to be the fastest. Expect the temperature to rise too.

      2. “Eco” (left side on Table 2) sets power limit to minimum allowed (except for one or two cases).
      Usually the most efficient but also the slowest.

      3. “Eco70” (right side on Table 2) sets the power limit to 70% of the default power for the GPU.
      Since 70% is a setting that many like to use we add it here. Tends to be a good compromise between power and speed.

      You can try it out and set OC that best suits you.
      Best to start with lower OC values, increase them slowly and select what seem to be the most stable for your set up. These can vary from one rig to another.

      Lets us know if this was usefull.
      Feel free to contact if you need further help.

      Cheers

      Note: Memory clock in MSI Afterburner should be half of the indicated values, in the Tables. Ex. mem=+200 in the table, means mem=+100 in MSI Afterburner

          Hi Alex,

          thank you for the information.

          It is strange that only one 2070 is getting such low hashrate.

          We also notice that the GPU is basically idle, could it be crashed? (Are values frozen or decreasing if you let it run for a while?)
          It looks that you are overclocking your GPUs, and that 2070 may require other values.

          We suggest you to tweak the OCs a little and give it another try. We share some of our tests here https://miniz.ch/15053-2/.

          Or/and…have you tried to mine with only that 2070, and see if it works?

          If these suggestions do not help, could you paste here the very start of miniZ console output?
          Something like this:

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Alex,
      nice that it worked for Beam 🙂

      The error you get for ZHash also looks OC related. It can be that it’s just one of them that is causing this.
      If you run them all with stock settings does this also happen?

      The best would be to test them separately.
      You can try and tweak just one and see if is becomes stable…if so we suggest starting with the 2080 SUPER.

      Let us know if it works.
