Claymore’s Dual Ethereum miner GPU its fastest Ethereum/Ethash miner with lowest devfee
Fast & EasyEffective
Ethereum mining speed is higher by 3-5% because of a completely different miner code – much less invalid and outdated shares, higher GPU load, optimized OpenCL code, optimized assembler kernels.
Works On All Devices
Supports both AMD and nVidia cards (including in mixed mining rigs). It runs under Windows x64 and Linux x64.
Stability & Reliability
The watchdog timer checks periodically if any of the GPUs freezes and if it does, restarts the miner.
Step 1: Download the miner
Unpack the archive anywhere on your computer.
In the folder that contains the miner, you should create a file with .bat extension. You can do this in any text editor (for example, Notepad). When you save the file, it’s important to choose ‘All Files’ as a file type, not ‘txt’. Otherwise, you’ll have .bat.txt at the end of the file name, and miner won’t be able to open this file. Your bat file (let’s say it’s called test.bat) should contain the following text (Step 2):
Attention! For security reasons, Windows may stop you from opening the bat file. In this case, you should permit it to open in the pop-up window.
Step 2: Review a batch file for starting Claymore Dual Miner
setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0 setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100 setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1 setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool eu1.ethermine.org:4444 -eworker YOUR_RIG_NAME -ewal YOUR_WALLET ADDRESS -epsw x
Step 3: Configure the miner with your settings
WALLET_ADDRESS – enter YOUR Ethereum wallet address (this is how Claymore Miner knows where to deposit your ether) RIG_NAME – you can choose any name (like test), but don’t exaggerate: it should be 32 symbols max, contain only letters and numbers (no special characters like $%»*;@).
Step 4: Start mining
Double click your Bat file to start the miner. The miner will start, run the setx commands to set those environment variables, initialize each of your GPU’s, build the DAG file on each of your GPU’s and start hashing away. Let it run for about 20 seconds and then click “s” to display your Hashing speed. If you’ve followed the steps above you should see this screen.
