PhoenixMiner 5.6d

Phoenix Miner is the most popular Ethash miner, with support for AMD and Nvidia graphics cards.
The developer’s commission is 0.65%

Features, requirements and limitations

  • Highly optimized OpenCL and CUDA kernels for maximum ethash mining speed.
  • Official Windows / Linux support.
  • Nicehash support.
  • Automatic GPU tuning.
  • Supports AMD Vega, 580/570/480/470, 460/560, Fury, 390/290 and older AMD GPUs with enough VRAM.
  • Supports Nvidia 10 × 0 and 9 × 0 series as well as older cards with sufficient VRAM.
  • Additional “green” cores for RX580 / 570/560/480/470/460 reduce power consumption by 2-3% with little or no reduction in hashrate.
  • Lowest developer fee of 1% (35 seconds of defvee mining every 90 minutes).
  • Dual mining.
  • Advanced stats: the actual difficulty of each stock, the effective hash rate in the pool, and an optional display of estimated earnings in USD.
  • Generate DAG files in GPU for faster DAG startup and epoch switching.
  • Supports all ethash mining pools and stratum protocols.
  • A watchdog that monitors GPU threads, if they stop hashing for a few minutes, the miner will restart itself.
  • The launch monitor, if the miner cannot initialize the GPU and start mining at a certain time, restarts or runs a custom script.
  • Monitor GPU temperature, and when a critical temperature is reached, that particular GPU shuts down until it cools down.
  • Set the system shutdown temperature to protect your GPU from overheating.
  • Rig monitoring API.

Last changes:


  • Fixed issue with displaying GPU temperature of some Nvidia GPUs


  • Reducing the percentage of rejected / obsolete shares when mining on Nicehash
  • Fixed issue with reading GPU temperature with some AMD GPUs / drivers
  • The latest AMD drivers for Windows 21.5.1 are already supported starting from version 5.6b
  • Other minor fixes and improvements


  • Added support for displaying GPU hotspot (connection) and video memory temperature for Nvidia GPUs. Please note that VRAM temperature is only displayed by some GPUs (3080, 3090, possibly 2080Ti)
  • The Options  -ttj,  -ttmem,  -tmaxj and  -tmaxmem is now also working with Nvidia GPUs
  • Added support for AMD Windows 21.4.1 drivers
  • Added support for AMD Linux drivers 21.10-1244864-ubuntu-18.04 and 21.10-1247438-ubuntu-20.04 (only use them with Polaris GPUs or older or latest RX6x00 GPUs, these drivers will not work with Vega, Radeon VII GPUs or Navi)


  • Added support for the latest AMD Windows driver 21.1.1
  • Added new parameter  -mcdag to reset memory overclocking on Nvidia cards during DAGOV generation. This can allow you to set higher memory overclocking on your Nvidia cards without the risk of damaging the DAG buffer, which could lead to excessive misbehaving
    . Use  -mcdag 1 (default is 0, which means off) to use this new feature.
  • The -tt parameter is now only for controlling fan behavior. For example, - tt 60 sets of automatic fan speed with a target temperature of 60C; -tt -70 sets a fixed fan speed of 70%; and  -tt 0 disables the fan control. All of this can be specified for each GPU.
  • There is a new parameter -hwm that allows you to control the frequency of hardware monitoring, which was also done by -tt in previous versions of Phoenix Miner.
  • Other minor improvements and fixes
