ETHlargementPill a simple program, which affects Nvidia’s cards timings and enhances Ethereum mining effectiveness.
GeForce GTX1080, 1080Ti and Titan XP are unique in the 2016 cards lineup. They have a GDDR5X memory type. The key distinction of X memory type used in the highest tier cards is the ability to operate more data per cycle — 64 bytes instead of 32.
However, this approach requires increased timings. That doesn’t affect games performance, while memory dependent mining algorithms are affected negatively.
The cards listed above were just as effective at Ethereum mining as 1060 and 1070 until “OhGodACompany” released an OhGodAnETHlargementPill-r2, or simply — “The Pill”
ETHlargementPill how does it work
The app reduces GDDR5X timings, thus, enhancing read/write operations speeds of the memory. While greatly boosting mining abilities, ETHlargementPill-r2 has a very simple design. Upon launch, it merely reports its state and asks to keep a window open. Minimizing the window doesn’t affect its function.
- Launch the ETHlargementPill-r2.exe;
- Launch mining;
- Done. That’s it.
Your cards will get approximately a 30% boost:
- GTX1080 — 20-25 Mh/s -> 30-40 Mh/s;
- GTX1080Ti — 30-30 Mh/s-> 45-55 Mh/s;
- Titan X/XP — 31-36 Mh/s -> 45-65 Mh/s.
