Miner- Zogminer: Linux SILENTARMY

I'll add my voice to those that have sold most of their older cards as well and now mainly have RX470 and RX480 cards. I do have a few R9 290's yet, but their saving grace is there high hash-rate and the BIOS is somewhat tweak-able to get power under control, bu they are still no where near as efficient as a RX480. Even with so called "cheap power" the RX series is about the same hash-rate at half the power draw, so it is still a worth-while upgrade.

Hello zogminer's developers,
The miner works great, I am now waitting to zmine.io
let us to mine with your miner to see the differences between
cpu and 2gpu (7970 and R9380) for mining zcash.

Thank you very much, the miner is great.

@tytanick I am facing similar issues developing my own stratum miner. Working with suprnova to fix them.

Btw cool initiative. The success of this project is among the factors deciding whether or not to release my own miner. For now it seems I'm still a bit ahead. Hashing 22 sols/s on 390X now.

You may start by stop being so boastful and have some respect for people

Compared to most miner devs he is the only one that's not a snob. He is a pretty stand-up and cool guy.

What miner are you talking about zogminer if so you have a link

thank You


so it is working now!!

The miner is not yet finished, as I always say, have patience guys. You can go ahead and test it, but bear in mind this is not finished software.

Update October 23:

I have been working on getting the host code integrated in zcash and improving it. I have added early support for testnet mining, and I am now working on stratum support. Next objectives are multi-gpu, stability fixes, etc.

Lots of work left, but I will be working on this full time until release.


When you connect to zmine.io the miner runs very fast as at screenshot is shown,
but I think that zmine.io still doesn't let to gpu mining.

Thank you very much by clarify, omaralv.

Worth every donation keep it up Genoil also as one wowow lets do it!!

One cuestión, if you use the this miner GPU, i can mining other coin with de CPU, the miner zogminer use GPU And CPU to solver bouthg???

Thank you
Sorry my inglés

So 1000w power supply would run everything fine?

Also is there a big difference in speed with the 470 compared to the 480?

Just want to get some info before going out to buy a few cards.

Will we be able to mine with windows?


For anyone that managed to get this running, hows the power consumption compared to ETH

Does anyone have the same issue then me? https://github.com/nginnever/zogminer/issues/17

Edit: Ubuntu broken no screen anymore :confused:

I've had almost the same issue. This happened to me (black screen) because I used internal Motherboard GPU prior to installing drivers and once they are installed – Ubuntu switch your default driver to amdgpu-pro. Put your HDMI cable into your external GPU and it should boot properly.

check the wiki il https://github.com/nginnever/zogminer/wiki/Ubuntu-16.04-Setup to verify if Headless Systems chapter helps you

Where can i find the function list?

Is Ubuntu 16 and AMD GPU Pro required in this initial version? I have a number of R9 290s mining ETH, but on Ubu 14.04 and the 15.12 driver with Claymore. I see the mention of 16 and Pro in the setup guide on the github page, but it doesn't say it's required. I would love to test out and help with debug, but don't want to have to dual-boot as I'm remote from the systems.
