to form an answer: @richard's comment in the previous is right, the DAG file's size is the source of your problem, your GPU needs to load it before start mining. Since mid-2016 it is no more possible to mine using a 2GB graphic card while the DAG file has exceeded 2GB. we will reach 3GB in April 2018.

Check you PAGE file size - it should be more than 16000 MBs. Keep minimum 16000 MBs and maximum 20000 MBs. A majority of the miners rely on virtual mem to keep the process quick and it requires a good amount of size allocation. I have 4x gtx 1060 6GB and was have this error until i changed the page size/virtual memory

Try adding --no-precompute to your args list. I was struggling with a similar issue on a very similar setup and this is what got me back up and running again.

Cuda and OpenCL are used to program highly parallel processors. Cuda was creted by Nvidia for its GPUs. OpenCL was proposed by Apple but is backed by major industry players like AMD, Intel, etc, it can be used to program from GPUs to billion processors supercomputers. Ethash is the algorithm used for the Ethereum PoW. From its design rationale you can read ...

Ok, folks- after subjecting my self to almost seven solid-hours of hacking around the BIOs and reinstalling Windows, I finally decided to switch gears into ethOS on another build configured with 8 * Radeon RX 580 Sapphire GPU's- and I nailed RIGHT OUT OF THE GATES with the below over-clocking parameters yielding >= 29.5 Mh/s per GPU, totaling 236 Mh/s! ...

Background To mine a block, one must perform calculations. There's nothing magical about computers -- you can do the same thing with pen and paper, just much more slowly. Normally, computation on your computer is done using a CPU which is capable of performing a large variety of computations in rapid succession. A graphics card has a GPU (graphics processing ...

Based on this Reddit thread, you can control the GPU usage for mining when using Claymore. Note that Claymore has a DevFee where it mins to the developers wallet now and then. There are 2 parameters for control ethi controls the Ethereum intensity and li for turning on low intensity mode. From my experiment, the 2 params seem independent. When using -ethi ...

You should update your driver. The 1080 ti came out after that driver was made. For step 4, enter 'sudo apt-get install nvidia-381' http://www.linuxandubuntu.com/home/how-to-install-latest-nvidia-drivers-in-linux

I solved the same issue by changing from Auto to Gen 1. It has to be changed in several places and all should match. After it's working I'd test your hash with each different generation to find what works best for you.

The solution was to set the PCIe Port from version 3 to version 2 in the BIOS! Now it's stable for round about 14 days.

cannot allocate big buffer for DAG. Your card is likely not to have enough memory for the DAG see this post. And more explanation about DAG concerns.

I have a 980 Ti and I only get 5 MH/s on Win 10. The GTX 610 is probably going to be way under that. nVidia cards are terrible for mining compared to AMD cards presumably because of the difference in how they implemented OpenCL. I doubt they are producing much more ETH than the cost of the power it takes to run them.

Have a look on http://www.mininghwcomparison.com/list/index.php But GTX 610 is not even listed. Only GT 610 is listed with a 0.5MH/s hashrate. Nvidia cards are not good at mining, so none use it, that's why you don't find any data.
