The latest update to the CryptoNight AMD GPU miner SRBMiner brings binary kernels on the table, allowing the miner to load faster on some of the most popular AMD GPUs instead of having to compile the kernels on each start of the software. The binary kernels are also a solution to a problem with drivers 18.7 and newer that seem to generate bad kernels, even though these drivers are not recommended. The binary kernels are available for the following AMD GPUs: Vega 56, Vega 64, Vega FE, RX 470, RX 480, RX 570, RX 580, RX 560 and RX 560. Older AMD GPUs such as R9 2×0 and 3×0 series are still supported, but they will still be compiling kernels on each start. If you are having issues with the binary kernels you can just delete the BinaryKernels directory and the miner will once again generate them on each run. There are also some OpenCL optimizations, mainly on the Heavy algorithms, so you can get a few extra percent in them. There are also a number of other fixes and improvements, you can find the full changelog below.

SRBMiner V1.6.7 Full Cangelog:
– Now providing binary kernels for popular algos on mainstream cards (Vega56&64&FE, RX470&480&570&580, RX550&560)
– Auto setup for a lot of cards improved, especially for RX550, RX560
– A lot of OCL optimizations, mainly on Heavy algos (Heavy, Haven, Bittubev2, Italo)
– Removed --sendallstales parameter because it is now the default behavior (to send all stale shares)
– When using algo switching mining time is now showing total mining time, not just for the specific algo
– Now on every miner start a new log file is created, in the format of date-time in normal mining mode
– Added parameter --algoswitchmintime
– Completely setup everything for algo switching on Monero Ocean pools, you just need to edit your algo hashrates, and change wallet in the example files
