Iron Fish Mainnet Launch and Miners Comparison
[Music] what’s going on everyone welcome Rabid here and today is iron fish mainnet day. So depending on the time when you’re watching this, iron fish should be on mainnet now, unless a delay happened last minute. Some miners have emerged with 3x the hash rate. Now we do know that about SRB minor only works on hero miners. I’m going to try that out right now just to see if it does work on any other pools and we’re going to kind of compare a bunch of these miners together. It sounds like bz minor released an update as well. It’s currently in beta phase, so you can test that thing out as well. It should be released at the time of watching this video but we’ll do some power consumptions versus that off the Hop here we do have SRB minor in hero miners.
SRB Miner Tests
It’s looking like 7.328 gigahash on an RTX 3070 at the wall. We’re using about 92 Watts subtract my system of 22 Watts, that’s 70 Watts at the wall and a gigahash to Watt ratio of 0.104. Now I’m going to try this on another Pool and see if we do gain that hash rate. So, I am now on SRB Miner at Flex pool and as we can see, we’re only doing about 2.304 gigahertz so we’re not gaining the Boost. It only seems to work at the hero miners pool so I’m not sure why or what’s going on. Something’s happening in the background, no idea. But we are only seeing 2.3 now. If I spam the refresh button, there are some times when it does end up hitting like four gigahash, six gigahash, or seven and then right back down. It’s almost like it’s on a leash and then it says nope don’t do it. Going back to 2.3 so there goes, see look 7.3 confirmed right there you can see it. It’s not up here but it’s right there and I’m going to hit refresh again and we’re gonna see it’s gonna disappear here in a few seconds. So, I’m actually glad I caught this.
I had a failed recording earlier or my mic wasn’t working and it wouldn’t duplicate it but now it looks like it’s working there goes see right back down to 2.3. So, I don’t know what’s going on in the minor logs. It’s not showing anything differently but it is doing a spike up and like I said it just gets like hey no don’t do that. It’s like an Nvidia lhr thing get back down here we don’t want you to work anywhere else type of thing so I’m not sure what’s going on regardless I caught that little bug there.
BZ Miner Comparison
Let’s jump into bz minor because it is supposed to work on all the pools allegedly all right and here we go bz minor version 14.2.1 B1, so beta version one. Let’s see how she performs. All right guys so here we are in bz minor and you can see we’re at Flex pool, not hero Miners and we’re rocking 8.345 gigahertz. That is more than what SRB minor was doing. At the wall, we’re doing about 91 Watts. It is in the higher 90s and so sometimes it’s 91 so I’m going with 91 Watts here. Take away the system that is 69 Watts that works out to be 0.120 gigahash per watt.
So far we’re in the lead here with b z minor so I jumped on over to Hero miners with bz minor and we are still getting the same hash rate so it’s working on Flex pool as well as hero Miner so I’m assuming it’s going to work on various all the pools out there so it looks like just from being able to move around all you want bz minor is a clear winner here over SRB minor. Now one thing I did notice hopefully it’s fixed in this version but in a couple hours I did lose my overclock settings within bz minor and my rigs went from like a thousand Watts upwards of like 2500 and my fans ramped right up. So keep an eye on it, maybe you want to set a power limit or something just in case or maybe it’s fixed but always be mindful that overclocking your gpus within Miners and stuff something could happen so just be very careful guys.
So, that was a pretty quick one but it don’t take long to get to some results. Thank you for checking out this video. This is going to be a crazy week because I do expect more miners to release a lot more optimizations and updates to happen so we’re gonna try to stay on top of all this. Thank you for checking this out. I’ll see you on the next one. Rabid Out.
