T-REX Miner v0.20.0: Download and Configure Nvidia GPU Miner for Windows & Linux


T-Rex NVIDIA GPU miner Ethash/Kawpow/Octopus/MTP

T-Rex Miner — universal program for mining cryptocurrencies on Nvidia cards. It supports many algorithms and we, as developers, try our best to make it as fast and easy to use as possible for users. Developer fee is 1% (3% for Tensority, 2% for Octopus). Works on both Linux and Windows.

What’s new in T-Rex v0.20.0?

  • Removed old and rarely used algorithms (x25x, x16r, etc.)
  • Combined all CUDA assemblies into one binary
  • (Windows) Added options < code> –pl , – -mclock and --cclock to control GPU power caps, memory and core clock speeds.
  • (UI) Show maximum sharing complexity if –validate-share is given
  • (Windows) Remove dependency on Visual C ++ runtime.

Error correction:

  • --script-epoch-change – does not execute script when switching to ZIL session when dual mining ETH + ZIL (API)
  • Inconsistent GPU order in API with --pci-indexing installed Various stability issues

Customization T-Rex

  1. Right-click on the file, select “Modify”.
  2. A text document will open and you will see a list of program commands. The -u switch is responsible for the address of the digital wallet. It should be replaced.
  3. However, for those who are interested in the full configuration of the program, consider the contents of the batch file in more detail.
настройка батника trex
  1. t-rex – the name of the program that will be launched using the .bat file
  2. -a bcd – the name of the mining algorithm … The list of available algorithms is listed above
  3. -o stratum + tcp: //eu.icemining.ca – specify the address of the pool. The -o stratum + tcp: // construction is required
  4. : 8433 – after the pool address we put a colon and indicate the pool port
  5. -u 1Gо7d8C1EYQzmgbsDkTSdtW2g5H5G3gBCo < / strong> – after the -u key we indicate the address of your digital wallet
  6. -pc = BCD – we indicate the token of the mined coin. This is necessary for the pool to understand which coin we want to mine
  7. -i 20 – set the intensity of the program

To start T-Rex with the config.txt configuration file, type in the console: t-rex -c config.txt. Use the config_example file as a starting point to create your own configuration. If the parameter is set in the config file, as well as via the cmd line, the latter takes precedence, for example: t-rex -c config.txt -w. You can also use environment variables: just put% YOUR_ENV_VAR% anywhere in your config file and it will be automatically replaced with the value of the YOUR_ENV_VAR variable at runtime.

Launch T-Rex

So, we have configured the program for mining Bitcoid Diamond coin. By analogy, other coins are configured on other algorithms. We launch our batch file by double clicking and see what the miner’s console window writes to us:

окна майнера t-rex
  1. Program version
  2. Installed driver version
  3. List of video cards available for mining
  4. Pool address that you specified in the batch file
  5. Coin token or pool password. Pools rarely use a password, so in 90% of cases you need to specify a token
  6. The program configures the connection to the pool
  7. Authorization on the pool
  8. The intensity is set to 20. We set it in the batch file with the -i parameter
  9. The current block and network complexity of the mined coin
  10. The total hash rate of your farm.
  11. The hash rate of one video card
  12. The temperature of the video card
  13. Power consumption
  14. Fan blade speed
  15. Efficiency Kh / Watt

This completes the configuration of the program, but we move on to examining all possible commands.

Watchdog is designed to monitor the state of the miner and restart the T-Rex in case of a crash or freeze for any reason. In addition, the watchdog can optionally perform automatic updates if a newer version is available. We recommend using a watchdog timer to avoid mining downtime and make sure your GPUs are busy 24/7. If you really need to disable the watchdog timer, you can do so with the –no-watchdog option.

Antivirus warnings

To protect the miner from reverse engineering attacks, binaries are packaged using third-party software that mangles the original machine code. As a result, some anti-virus engines can detect certain signatures in the executable file that are similar to the signatures of real viruses protected by the same packer. In any case, it is recommended not to use cryptocurrency miners on computers where you store your sensitive data (wallets, passwords, etc.).

IMPORTANT! This program is for advanced users (users should be able to manage AV / Firewall exceptions). Some of its components may be labeled with antivirus software, usually labeled with antivirus software. This is normal as almost all cryptocurrency and mining software on the market is AV blacklisted. Just make an exception in your AV software for the program to work properly. This software is provided by its developers “as is”, site administration crazy-mining.org is not responsible for the risks associated with its use on your system, if you do not trust the developers of this software, do not use it.


To maximize the hash rate, our software uses all available GPU resources, so it is important that you check your overclocking settings before you start mining. Our general recommendation is to start with the default GPU settings (no overclocking, default power limitation) and then, after making sure it is stable, slowly increase the overclocking to find the sweet spot where the miner is performing at its best and still not working. … crash.

                                   To change main pool port you must write it right after algo: <algo_name>:<port_number>
                                   (eg: --fork-at x16rv2:4081=time:2019-10-01T16:00:00).

        --mt                       Memory tweak mode (default: 0 - disabled). Range from 0 to 6. General recommendation
                                   is to start with 1, and then increase only if the GPU is stable.
                                   The effect is similar to that of ETHlargementPill.
                                   Supported on Pascal GPUs with GDDR5 or GDDR5X memory only.
                                   Requires running the miner with administrative privileges.
                                   Can be set to a comma separated list to apply different values to different cards.
                                   Example: --mt 4 (applies tweak mode #4 to all cards that support this functionality)
                                            --mt 3,3,3,0 (applies tweak mode #3 to all cards except the last one)

        --script-start             Executes user script right after miner start (eg: --script-start path_to_user_script)
        --script-exit              Executes user script right before miner exit.
        --script-epoch-change      Executes user script on epoch change.
        --script-crash             Executes user script in case of miner crash.
        --script-low-hash          Executes user script in case of low hash. Hash threshold is set in MegaHashes/second.
                                   Example: --script-low-hash script_to_activate:50
                                            (activates "script_to_activate" script once total hashrate drops to 50MH/s)

        --version                  Display version information and exit.
    -h, --help                     Display this help text and exit.
