    Starbuck just took a Princeton course online for free to learn about crypto!

    Onboard - always disabled

    144_5 200_9 equihash variant

    • ewbf support expected in july pimpup
    • lolminer isn't there yet and no api
    • therefore no good amd support yet

    What is everyone mining right now besides ETH?

    • ETH or ETHASH coins


    • no linux support
    • might possibly get one if it's the only thing in the rig, and the correct motherboard with support for pci atomic messaging... not all of them have it.
    • most people dont have those boards.... so... they will have to stick with windows miners due to the current opencl support on linux
    • with nvidia you just reset the card and move on
    • amd - you have to reboot the whole box - for the first step - need PAL - abstraction library - and they replaced ROCm with PAL. ROCm was just february announced......
      We cannot get the driver to boot into anything on newer kernels - But with the new ubuntu it will work better... due to mfg. support - we would need to deliver a vega-only kernel....
      Business case could not be made for pimp to become the VEGA masters. AMD is off their FOSDAM map.... Unpredictable
      Also there's no miners out for it anyway.

    We should be Retiring some miners.

    • kepler support could be removed. will save considerable space. sm_30, sm_31 computes.
    • the devs are doing this now by default
