when plotting poc with xplotter, I used to plot 3500 nonces/min (don’t laugh, I can wait), but now I tried xplotter1.3 for poc2 plots, and it generates only 850 nonces/min - same computer, same config. even for me this is no fun anymore
It may have something to do with the environment. Are you running any other programs?
hmmmm… pc is mining, and I am surfing the internet (as we speak) nothing performance intensive, and I used to do the same when plotting poc1 - and as a result, nounces/min sometimes dropped down to 2500 and when closing some programs, speed was increasing again. regarding poc2 plotting the value ist constant and low.
i have 8 GB RAM, let xplotter decide how much to use, threads 4 and avx as before
xplotter_avx.exe -id XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX -sn 32946454 -n 7248456 -t4 -path G:\plots -poc2
I’m updating Xplotter as we speak.
Ha ! Solved the case … there was a blank space missing between -t and 4. stupid little me. now everything is back to normal speed.
would therefor like to delete this topic, dont know if this is of any use for the community…
I will leave it because there may be the exact person that runs into the same situation as yourself
Thank you for following up, that is the most valuable part.
The reason I ask: I’ve seen a drastic difference between running “Folding @home” (for CureCoin and FoldingCoin) or gaming while trying to plot. For me it was a >7k to < than 5k difference. I also see a ~100 nonce/min difference when the plot window isn’t selected and/or when the drive is being written… this indicates to me the more ram dedicated: the faster the generation of the nonces. But, I’m also reading and writing via LAN…
