Great to see an option out there that squeezes some 144,5 Solutions out of 2GB cards!

Does it work on a 2GB primary Windows graphics card (primary meaning the one used by the System for display?) I didn’t think that would be possible, with the overhead that Windows imposes!


#3

The 2GB cards work fine with miniZ on Linux, however on Windows the GPU driver overhead is quite big leaving only around 1.6 GB for the miner.
At the the moment the answer to your question is “no”, but I think it might be possible (with a small speed penalty) on a future version :slight_smile:
