Calling all miners: help benchmark FiroMiner for ProgPOW

Requirements: 4GB of VRAM

  1. Download the miner from:
    https://github.com/firoorg/firominer/releases/tag/v0.9.0

  2. Start the miner with firominer.exe -Z 400000

  3. Report back with hashrate and card model (screenshots if you want)

This miner is for benchmarking only. It will not run on mainnet or testnet.

Du u have the power use of those?


These are my results. but can’t get it to connect to a pool, only get error messages.

What pool are you testing on? Wasn’t aware there was one up

I wanted to test it, but in that case there is no pool at all yet. On github it reads that you could.

Gainward RTX 2080 Ti 11GB Phoenix GS (Watercooled) -reference card design (260W stock bios)

33 Mh – Stock
37.1 Mh – Overclocked +145 Core + 600 Mem - limit TDP 85% (220W)
39Mh – Overclocked +145 Core + 600 Mem - 100% TDP (260W)

No matter what i do (rising power limit to 120% and Voltage +20%) it will not pass 39.1 Mh. Some cards like MSI Trio and Zotac AMP can do a lot better cos they power limit is around 330 - 360W .
Anyway efficiency drops hard after 85% TDP as always in mining. I can not compare this with MTP so i do not know will this be better than currently around 5.6 on MTP i matter of rewards.

Forgot to mention, i would really like to see temps and power in miner.
One more note, boost your (GPU)memory will get you aprox +2Mh.
