In its major version 2, the popular AMD GPU miner SRBMiner-MULTI also introduced support for Nvidia GPUs, so now you can mine some of the latest algorithms introduced in the miner not only with AMD based graphics cards, but also with Nvidia video. cards also.
The SRBMiner-MULTI miner supports setting GPU clock (–gpu-cclock) and memory clock (–gpu-mclock) on Nvidia GPUs, as well as power limit (–gpu-plimit) via command line options. There is no GPU clock offset support yet to fully optimize power consumption for mining GPU intensive cryptocurrencies that can benefit from lower power mining, but we hope this feature will also be introduced soon.
SRBMiner-MULTI also supports dual mining for memory intensive algorithms Ethash/Etchash or Autolykos2, as well as GPU intensive algorithms such as Kaspa’s kHeavyHash algorithm… Of course, single mining for KAS is also supported. So, if you weren’t paying attention to the miner because it was AMD-only, now you no longer have any reason to ignore it if you have Nvidia GPUs.
However, in terms of performance, KAS mining on Nvidia lags behind other higher performing miners such as lolMiner or GMiner – about 520 MHz/s on RTX 3070 for SRBMiner-MULTI compared to about 600 MHz/s with lolMiner and GMiner with the same settings. However, other algorithms may perform better, so you may want to check and confirm. We still haven’t had a chance to test and compare the performance of SRBMiner-MULTI on Nvidia GPUs on most algorithms, and since the support is brand new, further optimization may take some time.
SRBMiner-MULTI is a program for mining cryptocurrencies on various algorithms for AMD, Nvidia video cards and for the processor. The application allows you to mine up to 4 different algorithms / coins at the same time. Works on Windows and Linux operating systems.

The easiest way to start using SRBMiner is to set up the program from the command line. Just create/edit a ready-made .bat file (Windows) or open a terminal (Linux).
--pool xmr-eu1.nanopool.org – specify pool address
14444 – specify pool port
--wallet xtLjmXrQNrWJ5NBsEj2R77ZBEgDa3fEe9GLpSf2FRmhexPvfYDUAB7EXX1Hdb3aMQ9FLqdJ56yaAhiXoRsceGJCRS3Jx.xd3c802ee0f8e12e4eb9792722b7816a42178aa29ef7477c138ddb940c55648x specify coin purse. The wallet can be obtained either on the exchange, or you can install a cold Monero wallet.
--gpu-target-temperature 70 – the program will strive to maintain this temperature
--gpu-off-temperature 83 – the miner will turn off when this temperature is reached and turn on when it drops
--send-stales – send obsolete shares to the pool (some pools partially pay for them or give bonuses).
--enable-restart-on-rejected – automatic restart of the miner if there are too many rejected shares
Batch file example:
setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
setx GPU_MAX_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_MAX_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
set LOGTIME=%LOGTIME: =%
SRBMiner-MULTI.exe --algorithm randomx --pool xmr-eu1.nanopool.org:14444 --wallet xtLjmXrQNrWJ5NBsEj2R77ZBEgDa3fEe9GLpSf2FRmhexPvfYDUAB7EXX1Hdb3aMQ9FLqdJ56yaAhiXoRsceGJCRS3Jx.rig1
We wrote in the batch file only those commands that will help you connect to the pool and start the cryptocurrency mining process. However, some other command line arguments need to be adjusted to improve performance, depending on your hardware type.
