Supported GPUs

* Updated  – Nov 2020 *

Compatible with:

  • Ampere: RTX 30XX series from v1.6w2
  • Turing: RTX 20XX and 16xx series from v1.0f
  • Pascal: GTX 10XX series, GT 1030, Titan Xp, Titan X…
  • Maxwell: Geforce 8XXM, 9XX …
  • Kepler: Geforce 6XX, 7XX, GTX Titan Black *

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

* We’ll try to include Kepler again, for some algos. Support was removed from version 1.5s.

    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

    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?

    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.

    hi im totally newbie on this…

    • 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?

    • 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.

    Tried using a 3080 to mine beam (144,5s) but for some reason, it does not seem to be pushing the performance of the card. Temps are staying at idle and performance is capped at 2 Sol/s

      Hi Grillsum,
      It looks that miniZ did not load the best kernel for the RTX 3080.

      Please try running with --mode=6.

      Also, -i doesn’t seem to be doing anything there. Maybe is best to try running without -i.

      Thank you for the feedback. We will try to further optimise Beam for your GPU.

      Let us know if this helped solving the issue.
      Cheers

          Hi Grillsum,

          You can find miniZ v1.6w4 version (Beta version) here: https://miniz.ch/download-beta/ with a fix for the RTX 30XX series.

          Our tests were OK, but it may require a bit more testing. So, all the feedback is welcome. 🙂

          Hope that all goes well!

            sweet it works! managed to get it stable at around 54 Sol/s give and take. gonna run it overnight and see how it performs and I shall let you know.

    Hi Grillsum,

    Which version of the miniZ works with GPU TITAN – TITAN BLACK (_sm35) on the 144,5s – BeamHash III algorithm

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Andy,

      Thank you for your message.

      miniZ is not compliled for _sm35, so you will not be able to use it with that GPU.
      We will try to include it in the next version, however performance should be very modest.

      Cheers

      • Andy says:

        Thanks for all.

        If it does not make it difficult, please add sm_35 support for GPU Titan. It’s just that GPU Titan is available in some quantity.

        Best wishes

        • miniZ says:

          Hi Andy,
          Next cuda 10 version will support sm_35 for 144,5s – BeamHash III algorithm 🙂
          Cheers

          • Andy says:

            I installed a new version, unfortunately the support GPU TITAN sm_35 does not work.

              Hi Andy,

              We’ve tried with another sm_35 GPU and it was running fine.

              Are you overclocking? Have you tried mining with stock settings?

              You could also try mining with another kernel. For example add --mode=0 to your command line.
              Also, you may test --mode=n, n=0-5,7-10,13-15. (0-15, except 6,11,12)

              But, test stock settings first, it really looks like it’s related to that.

              Let us know how it goes.

    Hi I have a 680GTX and when running the MINIZ under nicehash it just says excluding GPU#1.

    Im not sure why this is any feedback would be great.

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Shannon Haslam,

      miniZ is not compliled for _sm3X architectures (Kepler), so you will not be able to use it with your GTX680.

      To include architectures below _sm35 we would need to make major modifications to the program, so that it would be able to run on those GPUs.

      We believe that your GPU is sm30, could you please confirm this by running miniZ with -ci program?:

      miniZ.exe -ci

      Could you also tell us which algo where you trying to run?

      Thank you for your feedback!

      • Shannon Haslam says:

        Thanks for the feedback. Yes it is in fact SM version 3.0.

        No dramas thought id ask the question. I managed to get it running on version v1.5u2

        But it only supports 144,5 and it doesn’t seem to download the files required to run it.

        Thanks for your help anyway.

        • miniZ says:

          Hi Shannon Haslam,

          Possibly, with version v1.5u2 you are be able to mine 144,5 210,9 and 96,5.

          “But it only supports 144,5 and it doesn’t seem to download the files required to run it.”
          Sorry but we didn’t quite understand which files are you referring to. 🙂

          If you are interested in a particular algo we may try to have a look at it for the next version.
          Just let us know which and we’ll see what we can do.

              Hi Shannon Haslam,

              The RTX 30XX are recent GPUs, only the most recent miniZ version supports them, and needs to be Cuda 11.

              You need to use v1.6w4, Cuda 11 version to be able to mine with your RTX 3090.

              Regarding the older hardware, we will try to compile for the sm_30. Maybe it will work for some algo. Which one interests you more? We will try to give that one a closer look.

              Let us know how it goes 🙂

                I have 6X the older Gtx 680s. I thought I would use them to mine instead of throwing them out. I know its not efficient, but I run them off my solar so power is free.

                The other thing I think might be a big issue is the fact they are only 2 gigabytes of Vram.

                In the latest version of miniz 1.6w I get the fatal error cannot load device code.

                  Hi Shannon Haslam,

                  The Cuda 11 version is needed to run in the RTX 3090. It is not appropriate for GTX 680.

                  At the moment, you will not be able to run miniZ with the GTX 680.

                  We see that you have a command line that will not work. In Nicehash you can omit –pers.
                  With the RTX 3090, with Cuda 11 version you can run:

                  miniZ.exe [email protected]:3369

                  We’ll see what we can do with the GTX 680, sm_30 architecture, to mine Zhash 🙂

                  Cheers

    No worries thanks for all the help.

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Alex,
      Thank you for the feedback.
      GTX765M is Kepler architecture, you’ll need to force miniZ to use the GPU.
      You need to use -cd option: -cd 0.
      Let us know if this solved the issue.
      Cheers

    Hi,

    I get “CUDA error 4 ‘unspecified launch failure’ in line 626” when running miniZ with my GTX660Tis using launch parameter -cd 0.

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Charles,
      Which algorithm are you running?
      Also, which operating system are you using?
      Thanks,
      Cheers

      • Charles says:

        I’m sorry, I’m kinda new to this, so I’m using miniZ through NiceHash on Windows 10. It only says “algorithm: ZHash”. NiceHash’s benchmark feature “approved” miniZ on two of my cards, but the CMD shell returns the error message and crashes everytime I try to start mining.
        Did I understand correctly that Kepler only works with the 144,5 algorithm?

        • miniZ says:

          Hi Charles,
          It is OK, we’ll try to understand the issue.

          Maybe you need to choose a different kernel to be able to mine with your gpu,
          it may be too slow for the default kernel.Which algo are you trying to mine?
          miniZ supports all Kepler architecture for all algos.

          Cheers

          • Charles says:

            Thanks for taking the time.

            I’m trying to use algo 144,5 according to the shell window before it auto shuts down, and NiceHash calls the algo ZHash.

            I tried the launch parameter –ocX to select the best kernel, and it still fails in line 626 but this time with CUDA error 6 ‘the launch timed out and was terminated’.

            • miniZ says:

              Hi Charles,

              You may need to add the kernel explicitly to the command line.
              Could you try adding --mode=n, n=[0,1,2,3,4,5,7,8,9,10,12,14,15]?

              Let us know if this helped.
              Cheers,
              miniZ

              • Charles says:

                No luck. Still error 6 in line 626. After I added –mode=n, n=[0,1,2,3,4,5,7,8,9,10,12,14,15] it also says [WARNING] GPU[2] cannot run in mode 0.

                • miniZ says:

                  Hi Charles,
                  We realize that on windows your 2GB GPU will only work with --mode=15. On windows 7 and linux, mode 14 should be also available.

                  Is there a possibility for you to try linux? It would be better because windows always reserves considerable amount of memory that limits the GPU potential.

                  Regarding the crash: possibly it occurs because the GPU is a bit slow, and the driver ‘thinks’ that the GPU crashed.
                  Are you running the GPU with overclock?
                  Cheers,
                  miniZ

  18. Charles says:

    Hi,
    I tried –mode=15, and it still alternated between error 4 and 6 in line 626. One time, it appeared to be working, but then it said “cannot resolve” instead.

    I would love to ditch M$ forever, but I’m too invested in the Cubase environment. :-/ The plan is to use the GPUs to heat up the room while I’m making music, and recuperate some of the cost.

    I attempted to overclock ~10% with MSI Afterburner, but the computer immediately froze, and woke up after a couple of minutes with all GPUs clocked at 324MHz. So, maybe there’s a driver issue.

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Charles,

      It seems you have an old system. Have you tried mining other algorithms?

      210,9 (AION) may work better with older systems. 96,5 could also work, but Aion may be more profitable.

      The ‘cannot resolve’ error is usually related to pool server misspelling in the command line.
      If, after checking this, you still have this error, could you paste here your command line?

      Let us know if you managed to make it work.

    Hi,

    I’m desperately trying to get my Nvidia GeForce GT 710 to mine BTGs (I know, it’s not the best GPU for mining but it’s all I’ve got) and I can’t seem to get it to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated…

    When I use the “-ci” option my GPU is correctly seen/found:
    Number of miniZ CUDA>=[8.0] using driver CUDA[11.20] devices found: 1
    #0 GeForce GT 710 | SM version: 3.5 | SM count: 1 | cores: 192 | Memory: 1.654GB | BusID:0000:04:00.0

    However, it seems to exclude my GPU when I try running it :

      Hi Mustang,
      Thank you for the feedback.
      We are able to use our GT 710, on Windows 10 with 461.72 driver. Which OS and driver do you have installed?
      It also works with Linux OS without any issue.
      It seems that in your system the GPU is a bit slower, and the driver ‘thinks’ that the GPU crashed.
      You can try and mine other algorithm, Aion for example.
      Let us know if you managed to get it working.

      Try adding to your command line: -cd 0.

    Hi, I’m back,

    thanks for your help, miner version v1.6w2 reports an error, (can not load deviceZ)

    miner version 1.5t3 starts, everything seems ok, quadro 3000M selected, reports everything. Also get some new job, cards detected, temp ok, but thats all. every 10 sec. comes a new line, but no interations, always 0.

    I use the 2miner, and mining BTG.

    Can I try anything else?

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Oliver,
      Thanks for letting us know.

      The error with v1.6w2 means that this version did not contain the kernel for your gpu.

      The issue with v1.5t3 is a bit more unspecific. Could be that the miner was not able to start the GPU.

      Have you tried the latest version, 1.7×3? Or 1.6x? Do they give the same errors?

      Cheers

    same but the failure is in 626

    Any ideas to fix the problem?

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Oliver,
      Thank you for your message.
      Unfortunately if the GPU very slow the windows driver may think that the GPU crashed and will stop the miner, it should work in Linux though.
      Have you tried to mine 210,9 – Aion? It is a lighter algorithm, and most likely a good option for your GPU.
      Cheers

  23. Oliver says:

    Hi,

    i tried Linux, the miner starts without error, but after that nothing happenend!

    Hello,

    I’m new at mining, every thing seems okay,

    But I have some question; I have mined for 8-12 hours a few times, but no coins are transferred to the wallet, there is a limit for this? It was shares of 80-150 a few times.

    thank you

    • miniZ says:

      Hi ertan,
      Usually the pool defines a minimum treshold that you need to achieve before a transaction is made for your wallet. Most (if not all) pools allow you to modify the treshold. The way this is done depends on the pool.
      Check with the pool what is their minimum threshold for the coin you are mining. Normally this information is available at the pool website.

    Hi,

    I purchase an raspberry screen to hang to my rig for showing some output of miniZ process. Since i miss read the specs and i received a 5inch screen rather a 7inch i was wonder :

    Does it exist a way to make a custom mining output string for sparing space on each line ? Meaning how can i print only like hashrate and temp and GPU’s name for example ?

    Thanks, best regards… ( sorry for my poor english )

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Spoinky,

      Thank you for your message.

      We have no explicit way to do what you ask. However, maybe the best is to use the json API.

      Use curl http://rig2:20000/getstat -s |jq and then parse the information you want.

      You can also parse the log (or the csv) file.

      Possibly, the option --coolui may also do the trick for you.

    Hi, I added a GTX 970 to my rig to boost my hashrate, but when I use it with my 2070, my 2070s hashrate goes down. Essentially I’m seeing no difference in performance because of this. Alone my 2070 does around 65-70 sols, and with my 970 running it does around 50. Anyway I can fix this? Thanks!

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Matthew Hedgecock,

      Is it possible that your power supply is not enough for the two GPUs? If you run miniZ selecting only the RTX 2070 (use -cd option) what happens?
      You repport a quite significant difference, but is temperature much higher with the two GPUs?

      What algorithm are you mining?

      Thanks for the feedback.

    • miniZ says:

      Hi tubs,

      Thank you for the feedback.

      Are you using Windows 10? With this OS, the available memory for the 4GB GPUs is not enough to take the best out of this GPU with 125,4. We’ll add a kernel that should be enough to support lower memory GPUs, but efficiency and performance will be slightly reduced. (It is better with Windows 7 or Linux).

    • miniZ says:

      Hi samuel,

      Merci de votre contact.

      This error seems to be related to overclocking. Are you applying any OCs?

      With OCs the GPU/Driver may become unstable. If this is the case, try to mine without any OC and see if the error persists.

      If you only have error with OC, you need to adjust the values a little.

      Let us know if you still have the same error without any OC. In this case, could you paste here the start of miniZ log? The information that appears before the actual mining starts.

      Let us know if this helps.

        Hi,

        I have a similar problem. I’ve got a new Zotac GeForce 3060 Ti LHR. The hashrate is throttled to 20 MH/s with miniZ v1.8y3 and NVIDIA driver v471.68. I tried to install v461.40, but it does not pass the system check, saying

        This NVIDIA graphics driver is not compatible with this version of Windows.
        This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware.

        Is there a chance to unlock it?

        Thank you in advance.

        • miniZ says:

          Hi ultra,
          It looks that you need to install a recent driver.
          Be sure to use version v1.8y4rc1 (beta version).
          Possibly you will need to add --tune=5 (or 4) to your command line.

    merci

    • miniZ says:

      Hi kardook,

      Thank you for your message.

      Usually, when this happens miniZ exits. But it may not be able to do so when the driver/GPU crashes, or gets too unstable.

      It is better to adjust a bit your OC settings.

      Cheers

  34. Tontan says:

    First I am using rtx 3060 with latest driver version and it get only ~18MHz.
    However, I tried to install 461.40 but It could not install 461.40 (Windows) driver. It show a message the graphics driver is  not compatible

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Tontan,

      Thank you for your message.

      You need to install a recent driver. Some GPUs are not supported by the old driver.

      When mining, do you see any message like this “[TRACE ] GPU[1]: Searching lock… ” ?

      You may not get the message, but it seems that miniZ is not able to get rid of the mining lock. Try adding --tune=5 to your command line (or 4 if the lock persists).

      A new version will come out very soon and should work better with your GPU.
      Let us know how it goes.
