- In 2015, announced the currency of Ethereum on the new algorithm Dagger-Hashimoto
- The algorithm is very different from x11 and the like, as they require a separate program for mining, plus the minimum amount of VRAM for the first time was 2GB
- With it before hashing program Ethminer connected to the network, and generates a huge DAG file in the current era of mining on the hard disk, and only after a generation has begun mine
- Because of the size of the DAG file according to one needed at least 2GB of RAM, according to others 4GB
- I have 3
GB run, and 3GB
anymore. In any case, the generation of DAG-file took about 10 minutes, and, considering that created a default current and next era (so when you change eras, mining was not interrupted), the generation time was approximately 20 minutes. Because of these DAG-files many often when you change eras hang the miners. Therefore introduced in 2016 the program from ClayMore miner, later called ClayMore Dual Miner is very helpful, because when you upgrade from one version of the DAG file was created on your hard drive, and once in VRAM of the graphics card. Further EthMiner also come to this, but lost their positions.
Moreover, that Dual Miner was allowed to mine 2 coins at once, where in some cases the second coin even helped to speed up the main work, however wasting electricity with correspondingly vozrostaet. So, the main difference between algorithm Ethash (it was renamed from Dagger-Hashimoto) – high memory requirement, so when mining Ethereum and other currencies in this algorithm, it makes sense to overclock the memory much downvalley chip GPU, so that it is less heated and consume less electricity. On the latest versions of the AMD also helps to reflash the timings of the RAM speed can increase by 10-20%. Program for mining Ethash: ClayMore’s Dual Miner and EthMiner . I recommend to use the first only if some program – download second which -G for mining on AMD-U for mining on NVidia. Pools for mining Ethereum MinerGate is a very interesting large pool with an unusual design and statistics, more familiar to cryptocurrency based on the algorithm CryptoNight.
