HowTo use OpenCL/GPU for accelerated snyc. with blockchain
Open /conf folder within your burstcoin directory ...
Create a new file with name:
'nxt.properties'. (All settings made in there will overwrite the default.)
Open 'nxt.properties' in a text editor and add the following:
The wallet will try to auto-detect the openCL device and platform.
If auto-detect does not work for you, configure it manualy by adding
burst.oclAuto=false burst.oclPlatform=0 burst.oclDevice=0
to 'nxt.properties', specify the platform and device you would like to use.
With a quite good GPU and depending on bandwidth, this will enable you to complete sync from block 0 within 1-2 hours!
@luxe i only can get gpu mining with local wallet with full sysnc blockchain???
@burstcoinPT As long as you pool mining you will need no local wallet, on solo your wallet needs to be in sync to mine of cause. But thats not the point of this thread.
@luxe Nice one. This is the record so far. Who can beat it? x)
@daWallet just installed my new 480x ... time to break the 'record' ...
Better late than never ... just completed a re-sync of burstcoin wallet 1.2.8 ...
Complete sync in ~1h 38min
Compared to previous test, to block 250000 ~ 1h 12min
I downloaded wallet from github and added a nxt.properties file to /conf folder, to enable openCL.
burst.oclVerify=true burst.oclAuto=false burst.oclPlatform=1 burst.oclDevice=0
Btw. i have quite slow internet connection and was running jminer and my displays to same GPU, while sync was processing ...
