    Hardware corner

    • AMD Radeon 3000-series in 2019 (link below)

    • AMD Radeon 590 (known)

    • AMD Radeon Vega 2 (link below)

    • nVidia 1160 and a 2060? & nVidia 1150 and a 2050? (link below)

    • nVidia 2000-series... Anyone jump on these for mining yet?

    • nVidia CUDA 9 to CUDA 10 - not much improvement on most cards.

    • AMD may soon have drivers capable of not locking up the bus when a GPU fails/no more hard reboots.

    Coin prices/Mining Profits/Difficulty

    • ETH made a jump
    • Upcoming Forks?
      Zcoin (XZC) forked to MTP algo: Mining will be with wildrig-multi-mtp, ccminer-djm34, and cryptodredge. Most likely cryptodredge will be seamless update, and wait for a real amd miner to pass QA for pimp update.
      details https://cryptomining-blog.com/tag/wildrig-multi-mtp/

    -- Large network spikes?... ASIC introductions?

    Support concerns

    • Most requests are centered upon PiMP OS Key resets. (see Miner.Farm 3 section below)
    • Everything else working great!

    Miner.Farm 3

    • Email Alerts are active. Know when a rig, miner, or device is having a problem. Notifications sent directly to your email.
    • Squashing bugs faster than they can be found!
    • Optimizing is on going.
    • PiMP OS Key resets are no longer automatic (done every hour)... now, users can clear their own PiMP OS Keys from within MINER.FARM.
    • Currently working on minor back-end cleanup.
    • New features are in the plans.
    • MINER.FARM will have a published Change Log

    PiMP OS updates

    pimpup (next expected release 2018-12-28)

    • Gminer, Bminer, Cryptodredge, and .... Claymore Dual! [All are being tested and will be released as soon as possible via pimpup]
    • XMRig is also on the tracker!

    If anyone comes across a algo, coin, or miner that PiMP OS doesn't support (yet), let us know and we'll look into adding it to PiMP (if possible)

    PiMP OS v2.9

    • The stepping stone to PiMP OS v3.0!
    • Currently in Alpha and being tested by the PiMP OS Dev Team
    • Will have newest video drivers.
    • Audio will be restored to PiMP OS - makes watching the PiMP How-to videos easier.
    • Could bring back support for older GPU's... pending testing.

    PiMP 0S v3.0

    • Fully automated
    • helpme3, pimpup3, gputool3 - Under development - possible "teasers" to come!
