PhoenixMiner 5.9b (beta) is out - what's new?
New update PhoenixMiner. It received the tag 5.9b (beta). This was announced by the developer on the bitcointalk forum.
- The name of the GPU manufacturer is now displayed in the device list for easier identification.
- Added support for the latest AMD drivers for Linux (21.40.1). There are still some bugs in these drivers, in particular, on older cards (RX4x0 / RX5x0 / Vega / RadeonVII). They cannot set the correct frequency and voltage.
- Confirmed support for latest AMD Windows drivers up to 21.11.2.
- Fixed issues with AMD RX6700XT cards with latest AMD drivers on Linux.
- Fixed issues with AMD Vega and Radeon VII cards in the latest Windows and Linux drivers.
- Fixed crash with very old Nvidia drivers (3xx.x).
- Other fixes and minor improvements.
Updated list of known issues (driver incompatibility, etc.) and workarounds:
- There is a bug in AMD Linux driver 21.40.1 that prevents the correct frequency and voltage setting on older cards (RX4x0 / RX5x0 / Vega / RadeonVII). Given that these drivers are also generally slower than the older drivers for these cards, we recommend using Linux 20.30 drivers for all devices older than the RX6000 series.
- If you are using Linux 21.40.1 drivers with Radeon VII cards, you must add the -fpwm1 parameter to be able to properly control the fans.
- AMD Linux drivers 21.40.1 finally eliminated PCIe Atomics requirements, but problems arise when you try to mix Polaris (RX4x0 / 5x0) and Vega cards or newer devices on the same farm.
- Some Nvidia cards report a lot of outdated orb in Windows 11. Using the same driver version in Windows 10 resolves the issue.
