Some 4 GB GPU mining cards have encountered issues, including lower than expected hashrate, errors in the mining software and disconnections while mining ETH.
As the ETH Epoch continues to increase, ETH mining requires GPU cards with a larger memory space to store DAG files. Claymore’s latest version is no longer able to support ETH mining on 4 GB GPU cards anymore. This has caused some miners using Claymore and 4 GB GPU cards to have issues mining ETH.
In response to this problem, many mining software providers have provided solutions:
Bminer and PhoenixMiner have already optimized their mining software and miners can continue mining ETH on 4 GB GPU cards using the latest version of Bminer and PhoenixMiner.
