Compatibility list

Which Cards is supported? Obviously AMD Cards.. But which ones?

RX Vega 56 and 64

Finally the Vega`s have arrived! These units features HBM2 High Speed Memory and as the Model says Vega architecture.

The Vega`s Utilizes a brand new High-Bandwidth Cache Controller, which is really promising. Both the Vega 56 and 64 Delivers just about the same performance when using them to mine Monero / XMR. Straight out of the box you should see about 1000 H/s, which is not really great for such an expensive card. Tweaking it a little bit by overclocking memory to ~1100MHz you can get around 1100-1250 H/s, wattage is about the same. You can downclock the card to save power, no problems running it at 900Mhz with same figures.
1100 H/s sounds good right? Yeah well, a couple more tweaks and you can go way beyond this, upto around 1900 H/s! But your system would need a couple things to make this work.

Its recommended to close applications such as GPU-Z, they can lower the hashrates quite a bit on the Vega`s. We recommend using HWiNFO instead, this have not affected Vega Cards during our test, disable GPU I2C Support under options before running it.

A couple simple steps to make your Vega speed up:

  • Go to “Device Management” in Windows
  • Open/Dropdown “Display Adapters”
  • For each Vega GPU you have, right-click and Disable then right-click again and Enable it.
  • Open AMD Settings panel
  • Go to Games -> Global Settings -> GPU(or global) Graphics -> Wattman.
  • Lower GPU frequency to 900MHz, adjust memory to 1025 MHz(VEGA 64) or 950MHz(VEGA 56), adjust fan to minimum 2000 RPM, set target temperature to 50c.

NOTE: This method means that its not limited to only 4 GPU`s any more.

The changes to Fan and Temperature target is because this method is very heavy for the memory on the cards, and temperature for memory will be much higher than GPU`s temperature.

From AMD XMR Miner version 0.61b, you can reach around ~1915 H/s with the settings above without any adjustments to the miner(Vega 64)

From AMD XMR Miner version 0.60b, you can reach around ~1900 H/s with the settings above without any adjustments to the miner(Vega 64)

We have been able to reach 2250 H/s on the Vega 64 GPU with our miner by tricking the drivers a bit further, but this caused a very high failrate with compute errors. You can go stable of between 2000-2050 H/s on a good card, but this will cost you about 1-2w for each H/s. If you dont mind the extra power usage and stress to the GPU, Set GPU Freq to 0%, Power limiter to about +10%, Memory upto 1100MHz(Vega 64). Remember to set a low target temperature.

Update 26.10.2017

Updated this KB to a easier method.

Update 15.10.2017

Read our post on editing registry to lower power usage and rise hashrate to ~2000 H/s. (Only for Blockchain Drivers)

RX580 4GB and 8GB

AMD`s RX580 is based on Polaris GPU Architecture with GDDR5 Memory just like it predecessor RX480 – There are only a few slight changes from it predecessor . It exists in 2 editions with 4GB Memory and 8GB Memory of which both have a bandwidth of 256 GB/s. For mining Monero / XMR the difference between 4GB and 8GB Version is almost none.

You can expect a hashrate of about 660-720 H/s when using RX580 cards @ power usage of about 85watts.  You can push the card over 720 H/s but that would cost you extra in terms of power usage, as those last hashes usually costs atleast 1 watt each.

RX570 4gb and 8gB

AMD`s RX570 is based on Polaris GPU Architecture with GDDR5 Memory just like it predecessor RX470 – There are only a few slight changes from it predecessor . It exists in 2 editions with 4GB Memory and 8GB Memory of which both have a bandwidth of 224 GB/s. For mining Monero / XMR the difference between 4GB and 8GB Version is almost none.

You can expect a hashrate of about 650-700 H/s when using RX570 cards @ power usage of about 80watts.  You can push the card over 700 H/s but that would cost you extra in terms of power usage, as those last hashes usually costs atleast 1 watt each.

RX480 4GB and 8GB

AMD`s RX480 is based on Polaris GPU Architecture with GDDR5 Memory. It exists in 2 editions with 4GB Memory with a bandwidth of 224 GB/s and 8GB Memory with a bandwidth of 256 GB/s. For mining Monero / XMR the difference between 4GB and 8GB Version is small, but due to the larger bandwidth on 8GB Memory, you can expect around 40-50 H/s more on that one.

You can expect a hashrate of about 650-750 H/s when using RX480 cards @ power usage of about 85watts.  You can push the card over 750 H/s but that would cost you extra in terms of power usage, as those last hashes usually costs atleast 1 watt each.

RX470 4GB and 8GB

AMD`s RX470 is based on Polaris GPU Architecture with GDDR5 Memory. It exists in 2 editions with 4GB and 8GB Memory both with a bandwidth of 211 GB/s. For mining Monero / XMR the difference between 4GB and 8GB Version is more or less none.

You can expect a hashrate of about 630-700 H/s when using RX470 cards @ power usage of about 80watts.  You can push the card over 700 H/s but that would cost you extra in terms of power usage, as those last hashes usually costs atleast 1 watt each.
