Can I add an RX480 to a system that has R9 280X already.

I'm currently mining with only 1 MSI R9 280X I'd like to know if I can add a RX480 to my system, I am running Windows 10 and Crimson 15.12 driver.

    No probs good luck with the mining. If you do want to keep the older card, minig Zcash is really good for older cards as on eth they take a big performance hit [or being old] wheras on Zec they perform pretty good. E.g an old 7950 is 50% slower than a RX470 on eth, but on Zec it is only 10% slower.

    Not familiar with Windows but you cannot mix a 280x and a 480 in the same machine if running under Linux. They need different drivers. Maybe possible in Windows.

    I actually gave this a shot. And failed. Hadn't found this thread so I imagined it could work.

    OS Ubuntu 16 LTS server
    HDD USB 16GB
    GPU 0 RX480
    GPU 1 R9 280x
    GPU 2 R9 280x

    Man I spent so many hours trying to figure out why Claymore dual miner threw OpenCLand segmentation errors. All caused by the fact that the AMD driver supports one of those chips. Either you go for AMD Pro (rx480) or the Catalyst (280x). I finally gave up when I realized. Deep inside I still have some hope somebody solved this.

    I should mention that I consider myself to be a novice Linux user so it might still be possible. Its just that I'm not capable of it. If someone figures out how to do it, please let us know :)

    clearly states, that no r9 2xx card are supported by amdgpupro driver.
    However the open source amdgpu driver could work, but need more welding.

    you're all wrong guys : I'm currently mining with 1 RX580, and 3 R9 290, and everything is fine, perfect speed... With last driver

    What's the problem ?
  • rmhrmh Posts: 179Member ✭✭
    I think there was some misunderstanding about the topic. Of course it will work on windows, the harder to make it work is in linuxworld.

    Hi!
    Interesting. Are you using Linux?

    I tried this one https://community.amd.com/thread/202821 and tried it to work together with the Catalyst driver for the r9 280x. Didn't work.

    Yes, that's not intended to work with r9 2xx cards.

    Yes, that's not intended to work with r9 2xx cards.
    But, the author of the modded driver clearly states so: "In my case I have a HD 6450 card for display only, and a R9 280X for compute. "

    He uses the mentioned modded driver to run his r9 280x. His driver works perfectly for me as well. Until I try to install another additional driver to get my other gpu to run. Then it fails. I would have asked the author but I'm not allowed to post to that forum section yet.

    @bouldou Are you running Linux? If so, which drivers are you using?
  • rmhrmh Posts: 179Member ✭✭
    Oh, i get it, i was superficial about reading that thread and thought you tried the amdgpu-pro's experimental backward compatibility.
    @bouldou running windows for sure.

    From this table:
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xorg#AMD
    you need this: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AMDGPU

    Excellent, thank you. I'll give it a shot. From what I can tell from the table, my r9 280x's belong to Sea Islands GCN 2nd gen and my RX480 to Arctic Islands GCN 4th gen. Just like you pointed to, the open source AMDGPU might work with both cards. I'll uninstall and try.

    I probably should have started a brand new thread for this?
  • MeatEaterMeatEater Posts: 19Member
    Hmm I uninstalled both drivers ( used this guide and some googling) and now I _think_ I'm using default amdgpu driver.

    But i see now, the problem is the missing kernel module named ati.

    First of all: Thank you very much for looking into this, helping me a lot! I really appreciate that.
    Well, my Xorg.conf is handmade by me, following a guide. I'm fully aware of that guide is for AMDGPU_PRO, which is what I was using before and now is uninstalled. However, when I tried to get the default driver to work again I noticed complaints in logs the Xorg.conf was missing or similar. So I figured lets try to make one, just like I did for AMDGPU-PRO. Maybe that was wrong of me. Not sure.

    I guess I could enter all three GPU's BusID's I got from the lspci command. But lets check out that missing kernel module first, ati.

    Here's my Xorg.conf:

    .....some time went by and I didn't make any good progress. So, I thought I'd save everyone's time and made a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04 server to another hdd I had laying around. Said and done. Now I really should have that working, default driver. But no no no :) No OpenCL. Perhaps this is because I use Ubuntu Server?

    ./optiminer-zcash: error while loading shared libraries: libOpenCL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    Claymore says:
    ./zecminer64: error while loading shared libraries: libOpenCL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
     XIO:  fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0"
          after 7 requests (7 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
    I probably should take a brake and do something else. This is driving me (even more) crazy ;)

    I don´t think 280x can function with rx480 efficiently.

    I only get good hashrates with driver 15.12 with hd7950, r9 280 and r9 280x.

    r9 290 and 290x , 390 give good hashrates with some newer drivers also.

    Ubuntu server by default does not contains or installs drivers (and X which is needed sometimes) for gpus.
    But it's possible just some symlink is missing.
    find / -iname "libopencl.so*"
    if ^-this found something, just make a symlink to a directory which is in the PATH (for example /usr/lib)
    if you have libOpenCL.so, then make a symlink with name libOpenCL.so.1
    ln -s /your.so.location/libOpenCL.so /usr/lib/libOpenCL.so.1

    You might just be right. However, every now and then I try anyways. I've got 2 R9 280x and 1 RX480 sitting in a chassi and it would be so nice if they could mine for me. But... I see to always hit something (the wall). If I run AMDGPU-Pro the rx480 runs great. The others won't mine. If I run the old Catalyst driver it's the opposite. So, when I heard the default open source AMDGPU driver should have at least experimental support I got interested. As you said the performance might suck but it still would be cool!

    find command showed they're alredy in the /usr/lib
    Does that mean they both are already in the right place?

    I should also mention that my latest hope that this could work was from @rmh who posted a link to this table where it states AMDGPU open source driver also have experimental support for older cards like GCN1 (R9 280X).

    When looking at the page it is made for arch linux. According to the table it looks like AMDGPU (open source) is the driver I should choose. The AMDGPU install page tells me to install the xf86-video-amdgpu package. Seems like Ubuntu has their own version. Installing the Ubuntu package now, output below. Surely not a driver, way too small package.

    Nope, still no luck. Tried to start claymore again:
    AMD OpenCL platform not found
    No NVIDIA CUDA GPUs detected.
    No AMD OPENCL or NVIDIA CUDA GPUs found, exit

    Checked /var/log/Xorg.0.log and the kernel missing is gone now :)


  • MeatEaterMeatEater Posts: 19Member
    Some small steps forward. The "missing kernel error" is gone from the /var/log/Xorg.0.log.

    clinfo works now but gives alot of NULL values.
    ~$ clinfo
    Number of platforms 1
    Platform Name Clover
    Platform Vendor Mesa
    Platform Version OpenCL 1.1 Mesa 17.2.0-devel - padoka PPA
    Platform Profile FULL_PROFILE
    Platform Extensions cl_khr_icd
    Platform Extensions function suffix MESA

    Platform Name Clover
    Number of devices 0

    NULL platform behavior
    clGetPlatformInfo(NULL, CL_PLATFORM_NAME, ...) Clover
    clGetDeviceIDs(NULL, CL_DEVICE_TYPE_ALL, ...) Clover
    clCreateContext(NULL, ...) [default] No devices found in platform
    clCreateContextFromType(NULL, CL_DEVICE_TYPE_CPU) No devices found in platform
    clCreateContextFromType(NULL, CL_DEVICE_TYPE_GPU) No devices found in platform
    clCreateContextFromType(NULL, CL_DEVICE_TYPE_ACCELERATOR) No devices found in platform
    clCreateContextFromType(NULL, CL_DEVICE_TYPE_CUSTOM) No devices found in platform
    clCreateContextFromType(NULL, CL_DEVICE_TYPE_ALL) No devices found in platform

    ICD loader properties
    ICD loader Name OpenCL ICD Loader
    ICD loader Vendor OCL Icd free software
    ICD loader Version 2.2.8
    ICD loader Profile OpenCL 1.2
    NOTE: your OpenCL library declares to support OpenCL 1.2,
    but it seems to support up to OpenCL 2.1 too.


    Then some random checks:
    ~$ apt-cache search amdgpu
    libdrm-amdgpu1 - Userspace interface to amdgpu-specific kernel DRM services -- runtime
    libdrm-amdgpu1-dbg - Userspace interface to amdgpu-specific kernel DRM services -- debugging symbols

    xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu-hwe-16.04-dbg - X.Org X server -- AMDGPU display driver (debugging symbols)
    xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu-lts-xenial - Transitional package for xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu-lts-xenial
    xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu-lts-xenial-dbg - Transitional package for xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu-lts-xenial-dbg
    xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu-dbg - X.Org X server -- AMDGPU display driver (debugging symbols)
    xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu - X.Org X server -- AMDGPU display driver

    ~$ glxinfo | grep -i vendor
    Error: unable to open display :0
    ~$ ls /etc/OpenCL/vendors/
    mesa.icd
    ~$ cat /etc/OpenCL/vendors/mesa.icd
    libMesaOpenCL.so.1

    That's it for tonight :)

    Sorry to hear this, because your endeavour to solve the problem is very praiseworthy nowadays.

    I never tried by myself, just heard from many places, that it works, just a bit pain to make it work.
    If you haven't read, this pages contains some config examples and some notes on dependencies:
    https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/AMDGPU
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AMDGPU

    I know it's quite stressing, that your gpus aren't mining, and my resolution to this problem is having a service pc, where i can test what i want only with one card, and the others doing they job in they rig.

    rmh, again thanks! That first url is excellent! Exactly what I needed. Can't believe I haven't stumbled upon it before with all that googling. The second url I've already came across but that one doesn't really contain each and every step like the first one(you know, I'm a noob). I'll definitely give it a shot soon.
  • MeatEaterMeatEater Posts: 19Member
    Read the pages now. Tried some. The problem seems to be that on of the pages is for Arch Linux and the other one for Gentoo. The commands they use(like emerge) doesn't seem to be accepted in my Ubuntu box. Unfortunately. Also, at my Linux level I basically need a step by step instruction :)
