Cuckoo Cycle GPU memory requirements


#21

I should revise that statement in light of https://www.grin-forum.org/t/gpu-mean-memory-reductions

If you apply the same memory reduction technique, implemented for cuckatoo in

to cuckoo/mean.cu then memory use should drop to 2.75 GB.

I will implement that sometime this week.


#22

The latest commit implements the memory reductions for cuckoo/mean.cu
Note that the new miner no longer supports option -E 1
The previous version supporting -E 1 remains available as Makefile target cuda_1. Memory requirements are now as follows:

cuda29 -E 0 5.6 GB
cuda29_1 -E 1 4.9 GB
cuda29 -E 2 2.8 GB

Enjoy!

Wow - I should pull my 3gb cards off eBay :slight_smile:

Is there any writeup on how.this memspace reduction was possible (a paper or somesuch) ?


#24

Is it possible to run it on windows ?
It seems it could be the only miner which can utilize 3gb cards effectively on new coins.

Hey @2c1vl2

Check this spread sheet to see how you can mine on Windows.

Best,
