I am confused, when trying to mine ETC with Phoenix miner, as I did for a long time, it calls the error:

GPU1: Not enaugh VRAM for DAG epoch 329

GPU1 is a RX580 with 4GB, but it is dedicated. I also have an R7 installed and as the default GPU it gets used by Windows.

If I start up Claymore, mining just works without an error. I would like to mine with Phoenix, since I get more stable clocks on my R7.

Any suggestions why it behaves like that? Sincerely

  • It already explicitly stated the problem. Your graphic card has not enough video RAM to pass DAG epoch 329. – sea212 Mar 1 '20 at 18:51
  • Claymore and Phoenix use different implementations of the same algorithm so their memory needs might be different. – Ismael Apr 17 '20 at 14:11
