The Latest AMD Radeon Drivers 17.Ten.Two Bring up to 12 GPU Support Under Windows Ten
The latest AMD Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.Ten.Two drives come with some interesting fresh features not only for games, but for compute use (including mining). The two of the interesting highlights regarding mining use are the GPU Workload option spil well spil up to 12 GPU Compute Support (only for Windows Ten). This may open up more options to users using Windows Ten for mining equipments with more than 8 GPUs, at least if they are using AMD-based movie cards and maybe soon wij are going to see similar feature also provided by Nvidia spil evidently the movie drivers are capable of driving more than 8 GPUs under Windows Ten spil AMD is demonstrating.
A fresh toggle te Radeon Settings that can be found under the “Gaming”, “Global Settings” options. This toggle will permit you to switch optimization inbetween graphics or compute workloads on select Radeon RX 500 and Radeon RX 400 series graphics products.
Radeon Software now supports compute workloads for up to 12 installed Radeon RX 400, Radeon RX 500 or Radeon RX Vega series graphics products on Windows Ten system configurations.
It is not yet clear if there will be some spectacle improvement when using the compute workloads option spil opposed to the gaming option, this will need to be tested. The up to 12 GPUs support for Radeon RX series of GPUs under Windows Ten is much more interesting for the miners that are already building mining equipments with motherboards supporting 12 or more GPUs. Do note that this feature evidently supports only AMD Radeon RX series of GPUs and not older models, but it also seems that the up to Four VEGA GPUs limitation should also not be a problem anymore. Again this of course needs testing for a confirmation, so if you check any of thesis fresh features te the latest AMD movie drivers feel free to report your results ter the comments below.
Do note that according to AMD GPU Workload feature may cause a system dangle when switching to Compute while AMD CrossFire is active, not that you would need to have Crossfire enabled at all for mining, but just be sure that it is disabled if your motherboard supports that. The Radeon Wattman should also give you less trouble when overclocking/underclocking the GPU, tho’ very likely not everything is fully resolved.
Update: It seems like AMD might have messed the spectacle with this fresh driver for RX 400 and RX 500 series of GPUs compared to what you are getting with the old Blockchain driver. So do not be ter a hurry to update to this driver with 400/500 series if you are mining Ethereum or other Ethash-based altcoin spil your mining voorstelling may druppel instead of increase! Wij are still yet to test the situation with VEGA GPUs, hopefully there things should be better…
