I believe gominer will be a great release for Decred.
I'm all for NOMP, and have been using it for solo mining various alt coins, but I was told it was a dead project and to go to UNOMP.
Will this project actually be forking from the NOMP repository or a later fork?
Either way, good choice.
for the ones who missed that : Sgminer Preview Available
PS: not exactly a part of the RFP, but an alternative to cgminer, debuggable with visual studio on windows
Preparing a faster cgminer release - making it child-friendly and fixing the CPU usage issue.
Great news, thanks ! I can share some hacks of NOMP to work with dcrd.
Let me just say that I am happy to see heated discussion on what is best for the community with guidance and a direction from the devs. This is a good use of dev funds. This way we dont end up with 'Hey this is what I did - it works for me. Good luck.' as is seen so much in FOSS. Making requirements and providing a motivation ($/DCR) is good!
Is there a git clone for nomp that we can test/use yet?
Mine may be used for AMD: https://github.com/wolf9466/decred-cgminer-wolf
Thank you, I'm already using cgminer to mine on various pools. However, I was looking for the clone or fork from NOMP that is being used in this RFP.
If there is such a thing yet.
I don't think the new PoW protocol(s) are even finalized yet.
What's going on here? Is it yet decided what the name of the new miner that the Decred Project will support will be? Is it gominer, sgminer, ...?
@JasonSome It's gominer, but it has a little way to go to catch to with the other miners in terms of features. It's is being developed actively. Also, for Nvidia cards, ccminer is still the right choice as performance is much better. CUDA support in gominer is planned, so eventually it will be best for all cards.
CUDA support for gominer will be added as of this next release, v0.4.0. Based on our tests using recent hardware, the OpenCL performance for gominer is pretty much identical to that of sgminer, up to some errors/noise.
We will be adding support for fan/temperature tuning in the release after v0.4.0.
