Improving performance at lower power
miniZ includes a command line argument for improving performance at lower power values. When you’re adjusting your power and OC setting values you can play around with the optimization option
--f11. This is useful for Equihash 144,5 algo only.
You can set it to levels [0-3], however 0 and 1 are the interesting ones.
--f11=1 is the default value and the best for stock settings.
Usually, at low power
--f11=0 produces better efficiency.
For the 1070 Ti (pl:90 W, core clk: +240, mem clock: -300) we get:
With --f11=1 (default):
[ 0d 2h31m48s] 0>GTX 1070 Ti
100% [49°C/45%]*25.85 I/s 51.6(51.7)Sol/s 88( 89.2)W
[ 0d 3h 2m54s] 0>GTX 1070 Ti 99.8% [49°C/45%]*26.32 I/s 52.6(52.6)Sol/s 90( 89.5)W
As you can see, in this case there is a significant performance improvement by setting
--f11=0. You should check this for your own settings and GPUs.
