        Definitely disable SLI/Crossfire when mining - GPU drivers don't correctly distribute compute workloads in SLI. When in SLI the GPU driver "fools" the application by only showing one virtual GPU, but then you're relying on the GPU driver to correctly distribute mining workloads which they don't.

        Yea definitely need CUDA....I'm running x2 SLI ASUS GTX660-DC2O-2GD5...i5-4670k at 4.6ghz...16GB RAM...and still cant average 150kh/s or go even higher.

        CUDA and OpenCL are tricky to have directly because Microsoft will not certify apps that use these functions right now (only DirectX is allowed). We'd certainly like to use both CUDA/OpenCL and are investigation other ways we could get something similar done.

        please add cuda because my 1070gtx can do about 30MH/S and i would like to mine of my gpu instead of the 300kh/s i have now

        Well , you CAN already do so to varying extents , depending on your system. If you have the right GPU , you can run the program itself WITH the GPU by right clicking the icon and selecting "run with GPU."
        In task manager , you can reassign priority by going to processes, clicking on the bitcoin app there and selecting go to details , where you can change priority and processor affinity; for example you could turn the priority up to "realtime" (all the way) but allow only the cores (logical cpu's) you choose to run it , leaving other resources with enough cpu ownage to run. I DO NOT recommend "Realtime," or switching the affinity. I do find that raising the priority to above normal helps without impeding the cpu I have (7th generation I-5 - integrated graphics.) If you really want this to work for you you need a workstation class video GPU , and some Xeon processing imho.

        HELP! I can't get my payout cause it says "can't find a camera" to verify my wallet :(
        I do have an already installed webcam :(

        If there is a Bug in the GPU, i.e., less cooling capacity then why not tweak the same for using the CPU of the system to mine Crytocoins.

        so gostaria de saber com é feito o pagamentos neste aplicativo ainda não encontrei nenhuma resposta na loja microssoft alguem podem me responder ja enviei alguns pedido de retirada so que nao sei pra onde foi teria que ser mais expecifico nesta parte

        I set my CPU to realtime setting in task manager so it would be the priority then everytime I tick on the GPU the apps always crashes and always says "display driver stopped", I am using Windows 10 and has a Nvidia Ge force display driver. How to resolve this? And also its always interrupted every time I do something in my computer, I just want it to run in the background without interrupting. Hope you fix this problem.

        Gpu will work on miner but will crash even on balanced need help. NVIDIA geforce gt 610

      • AdminAlex (CEO / Founder, GroupFabric) commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        If the GPU driver crashes - unfortunately it's exactly that - a bug in the GPU driver. That said, sometimes GPUs will crash if they have insufficient cooling, but both AMD and nVidia drivers do let you see the driver status in their control panels.

        If i use GPU and Fast mining i get error "driver is not responding, restarting driver" and after several times it blocks the mining program to access the GPU. What's wrong ? If i only use CPU then it works (but not as fast as i want to)

        Add the ability to use BOTH GPU and CPU at the same time in order to increase computational power per device.

        I have been mining several days and am unable to find the results of my efforts. Can you tell me what I have missed? Sorry, I am relatively new to this and do not want to waste any more time for no payouts.
