The “Zombie Mode” for mining Ethereum on 4GB AMD Radeon RX 470/480 and RX 570/580 GPUs had them introduced again from the lifeless (therefore the identify) after the DAG dimension has reached the capability of their video reminiscence. Utilizing it you’ll be able to nonetheless not solely mine ETH, however nonetheless make a pleasant revenue doing so, even with the lowered hashrate you might be getting. Regardless that the 4GB playing cards can nonetheless work their hashrate and profitability will proceed to drop down with every new DAG epoch (present DAG is 393), the event of mining software program and extra particularly the “Zombie Mode” continues. Right here comes the most recent lolMiner 1.21 for Home windows and particularly LolMiner 1.22 for Linux that brings vital efficiency enhancements for the “Zombie Mode” for mining Ethereum (ETH), at present doubling the hashrate and increasing the mining lifetime of 4GB Radeons for a pair extra DAG epochs with greater hashrate. And if this all appears too good to be true, properly, it type of is as there’s a catch…
At present mining ETH with AMD Radeon RX 470/480 or RX 570/580 GPUs with 4GB VRAM ought to be providing you with a hashrate of about 13-14 MHS for Ethash per GPU linked by way of a x1 PCI-E riser and utilizing a mining software program that helps “Zombie Mode” mining. Utilizing the most recent LolMiner 1.22 below a Linux particularly you may get a considerably improved efficiency utilizing the “Zombie Mode” on RX 400/500 GPUs for mining ETH… as much as double what you might be usually getting. It’s even simpler to attempt it with the assistance of Linux-based OSes comparable to HiveOS and SMOS which have already up to date with help for the most recent LolMiner. If you’re making an attempt HiveOS for a primary time you need to use the promo code CMB10USDPROMO to register that provides you with $10 USD in your account stability.
We already talked about that there’s a catch. With a purpose to get the additional efficiency acquire you have to use a excessive interconnect bandwidth to attach the VGA to the motherboard, so one thing like at the least 4x, x8 or x16 PCI-E extender or the GPU linked on to the motherboard. The additional efficiency acquire will NOT WORK for video playing cards which are linked by way of low-bandwidth x1 PCI-E extenders as is the case in 99% of mining rigs sadly, so these will stay operating with the identical mining efficiency as with earlier variations of LolMiner utilizing the “Zombie Mode”.
Attempting the brand new LolMiner with MSI Radeon RX 470 VGA with 4GB video reminiscence that’s instantly linked to the motherboard on a x16 PCI-E slot we bought 27.27 MH/s hashrate. The identical video card linked with x1 PCI-E riser does simply 13.xx MHS, we get about than double the present hashrate and really near what these 4GB GPUs have been able to delivering earlier than the DAG dimension moved previous 4GB. Do notice nonetheless that this new efficiency increase is not going to proceed ceaselessly, the truth is it’ll be obtainable only a few extra DAG epochs and upgrading current mining rigs with the GPUs linked to excessive bandwidth slots is one other subject simply making issues a lot more durable. And the additional efficiency increase will likely be obtainable for nearly a month and a half earlier than you get again to the identical degree of efficiency you might be at present getting with “Zombie Mode” on x1 PCI-E extenders.
New Zombie Mod Efficiency:
– DAG Epoch 393: 27 MH/s
– DAG Epoch 400: 21-22 MH/s
– DAG Epoch 405: 14 MH/s
