How to use --tune for RTX 30XX (ethash)?

With version v1.8y4rc2 we modified --tune option.  Now you will be able to adjust two parameters for your GPU (not compatible with the previous v1.8y4rc1 version, see below).

The default values are not yet optimal for everyone. We suggest you to play around with i and d starting with small variations around the defaults.

--tune=iN1dN2 where i stands for intensity and d stands for drag. N1and N2 are numerical values.

  • Intensity is similar to the value that you were using to tune with v1.8y4rc1. However, values are no longer compatible. N1 is an integer and can take values in the interval 0-64.
    i default values are: 15 (3060), 15 (3070 Ti), and 10 (3080 Ti), on Linux. And 19 (3060), 15 (3070 Ti), 10 (3080 Ti), on Windows.
    Default value with driver 460.39/461.40 for RTX 3060 is 43.
  • Drag will balance intensity. N2 is a decimal number and values can vary in the interval 0-100.
    d default values are: 55 (3060), 60 (3070 Ti), 59 (3080 Ti), on Linux. And 54 (3060), 57 (3070 Ti), 55.5 (3080 Ti), on Windows.
    Default value with driver 460.39/461.40 for RTX 3060 is 64.

Note: If you increase PL, usually you’ll need to decrease i value.

Usage is as follows:

  • To apply tune to all GPUs in your rig, with i=17 and d=57:
    miniZ.exe --url=YourWallet.Wor[email protected]:3096 --tune i17d57

    or

    miniZ.exe [email protected]:3096 --tune=i17d57
  • To apply tune with i=17 and d=57 to GPU 3:
    miniZ.exe [email protected]:3096 --tune3 i17d57
    
  • You can also tune only one of the parameters, i or d, and apply the values to all or just one GPU. Similarly to the previous examples:
    miniZ.exe [email protected]:3096 --tune i17

    or

    miniZ.exe [email protected]:3096 --tune3 d57

* Tune with v1.8y4rc1 version *

The following is only valid for the v1.8y4rc1 version. Read above for usage for other versions (from v1.8y4rc2 on).

With v1.8y4rc1 version --tune was working with one parameter. Only the RTX 3060 supported this option.

Default value with recent drivers such as 470.63/472.12 is 6. Default value with driver 460.39/461.40 for RTX 3060 is 38.

We were advising you to lower this value when the miner is not able to get rid of the anti-mining lock.

Usage is as follows:

  • To apply tune with value 5 to all GPUs in your rig:
    miniZ.exe [email protected]:3096 --tune 5

    or

    miniZ.exe [email protected]:3096 --tune=5
  • To apply tune with value 5 to GPU 3:
    Note that in this case you cannot write with ‘=’ sign

    miniZ.exe [email protected]:3096 --tune3 5
