3GB GPUs will stop working with ERGO (Autolykos2) algorithm on Windows

Aug. 22, 2022, 3:24 p.m.

❓ What happened?
Ravencoin DAG file sits at 2.5 Gb. GPUs with 3Gb VRAM will not have enough free memory for DAG file storage.
Some time ago the same had happened to Ravencoin and 4Gb GPUs.

🧐 Why? There should be 500 Mb left?! Windows and background apps may consume from 100 up to 500 Mb of VRAM.

🤔 What should I do now? How could I continue mining?

  • Rerun the benchmark and your GPU will start mining UBQ;
  • Install Windows 7 - 8.1 where GPU drivers consumes less video memory;
  • Connect directly to our ERGO pools using HiveOS\RaveOS. These operating systems consume less video memory.
