WildRig Multi 0.20.1 beta

This is further development of original WildRig with support for new algorithms, different stratum protocol and only for AMD gpu's.

DISCLAIMER:
Mining almost all these algorithms that WildRig Multi support isn't the same thing as mining Cryptonight family or Ethereum. These algo's more power consuming and core intensive, especially something like x16r. So please, make sure your PSU's are good enough, GPU's are rock stable and voltage for them set well. Low core voltage won't work here in most cases. If you get any instability - start from stock and find your optimal settings.

Download for Windows
dependencies: Visual C++ Redistributable 2015 x64

Download for Linux
dependencies: amdgpu-pro driver

HiveOS: check update for HiveOS, it should provide latest version.

KNOWN ISSUES:
- any report is welcome!


SUPPORTED GPU's:
- GCN 2nd gen: R7 260, R9 290, R9 295X2, R7 360, R9 390
- GCN 3rd gen: R9 285, R9 380, R9 Fury, R9 Nano
- GCN 4th gen: RX460, RX470, RX480, RX550, RX560, RX570, RX580, RX590
- GCN 5th gen: Vega 11, Vega 56, Vega 64, Radeon VII(but need some changes for better performance)
- RDNA 1st gen: Radeon 5700, Radeon 5700XT. Partial support for limited amount of algorithms

Pitcairn, Tahiti and other old cards of GCN 1st gen(like HD 78x0, HD 79x0, R7 265, R9 270, R9 280, R9 370, etc.) are not supported and won't be, because they are too old and need additional work.

SUPPORTED ALGORITHMS and BENCHMARKS:
Tested on my cards with auto parameters. OS: Windows 7; Used drivers: 19.2.3 Cards are modified this way(using OverdriveNTool 0.2.8 beta 1):
R9 290X: XFX R9 290X DD 4GB, stock clocks(1000Mhz/1250Mhz)
R9 380X: Sapphire R9 380X NITRO 4Gb, stock clocks(1040Mhz/1500Mhz)
RX550: ASUS RX550 2Gb, stock clocks(1183Mhz/1750Mhz), timings from 1500 strap(Hynix)
RX560: MSI RX560 Aero ITX 4Gb, stock clocks(1196Mhz/1750Mhz), 925mV core voltage, timings from 1500 strap(Hynix)
RX570: GIGABYTE RX570 GAMING 4Gb, stock clocks(1244Mhz/1750Mhz), 950mV core voltage, timings from 1500 strap(Elpida)
RX580: SAPPHIRE RX580 PULSE 4Gb, stock clocks(1340Mhz/1750Mhz), 1025mV core voltage, timings from 1500 strap(Elpida)
RX590: SAPPHIRE RX590 NITRO+ 8Gb, stock clocks(1560Mhz/2100Mhz), 1050mV core voltage, custom timings(Hynix)
Vega 64: ASUS Vega 64 8Gb, stock clocks(1630Mhz/945Mhz), 1000mV core voltage. While mining it drops clocks to 1530/945

For some algorithms lower core clocks specified because of exceeding power limit.
NOTE: Update in progress.


bitcore, x16r, x16rv2, x16rt, x16s, x21s: these algorithms benchmarked with hashorder "0123456789ABCDEF". With pool you will get higher and lower values, depends on hashorder
hex: this algorithm benchmarked with BLAKE as first algo. With pool you will get higher and lower values, depends on hashorder of current block.
timetravel: this algorithm benchmarked with hashorder "012345678". With pool you will get higher and lower values, depends on hashorder and length of it for current block.
wildkeccak is memory hard algorithm, so better your timings and higher memory clocks - higher your hashrate

another supported algorithms, but not benchmarked because of low interest or they just ASIC mineable:
- aergo, anime
- blake2b-btcc, blake2b-glt, blake2s, bmw512
- exosis
- glt-astralhash, glt-globalhash, glt-jeonghash, glt-padihash, glt-pawelhash
- lyra2v2
- nist5
- quark, quibit
- renesis
- sha256, sha256d, skein2
- x11, x12, x13, x14, x15, x18, x20r

OPTIMAL PARAMETERS:
Since version 0.15.2 parameters --opencl-threads and --opencl-launch set automatically when you put auto. If you want to try different values to find probably better performance, you can start from values shown below each GPU initialization line.
E.g. lines below means --opencl-threads 2 --opencl-launch 21x0. Where --opencl-launch consist of Intensity x Worksize.
Code: (log)
[2019-02-08 14:20:05] GPU #1 [BusID: #4] [Ellesmere] Radeon RX 570 Series
[2019-02-08 14:20:05] threads: 2, intensity: 21, worksize: 0/256, cu: 32, memory: 4096Mb

HINTS:
- some algo's can boost if use parameter --opencl-threads set to 2, or even 3(e.g. phi and skunkhash, but can be unstable)
- higher intensity not always more hashrate, try both more and less value than auto
- try different worksize, e.g. 64 or 128 instead of mostly used 0(same as 256).

DEV-FEE:
- by default is 2% and can be reduced(see how wildrig.exe --help)
- wildkeccak algorithm is 2% with no possibility to change

TODO:
- extend statistics per GPU(amount of found, rejected and stale shares)
- improve API, show zero statistics for inactive gpu's if use --opencl-devices parameter
- implement executing custom command when watchdog catch the gpu hang

Example of command-line start(with loop if miner crash):​
Code:
Code:
Code: (bat)
@echo off

:loop

wildrig.exe --print-full --algo algo --opencl-threads auto --opencl-launch auto --url pool:port --user wallet --pass password

if ERRORLEVEL 1000 goto custom
timeout /t 5
goto loop

:custom
echo Some error happened, put custom command here
timeout /t 5
goto loop
