thank you very much, it worked for me.
SamsTechStuff (1 month ago)
Nice! I had a few 4gb 570s, they were good cards.

SamsTechStuff I am using the asus strix rx 570 4gb
SamsTechStuff (1 month ago)
Glad it worked out! What Graphics card(s) are you mining with?
Burito1 Place (2 months ago)
Can u do a video, of a vega 64 & RX580, so I could see then in my device manager and mine properly
SamsTechStuff (2 months ago)
Hi Burito1 Place. I have videos that display both working simultaneously. Is there something in particular that you wanted to find out?

should i use DDU on fresh windows install?
SamsTechStuff (3 months ago)
Awesome! Glad you're up and running!
ktm640lc4BGD (3 months ago)
I have just installed amd driver over win 10 clean install and it works fine. thanx.
SamsTechStuff (3 months ago)
If a fully driver was installed that is out of date, I would use DDU to remote it, reboot, then install the driver of your choice. If you are happy with the driver that Windows 10 pre-selected for you, you don't need to do anything. Hope this helps!

adrockr2 (4 months ago)
So is this still the best driver? What are you using NOW?
SamsTechStuff (4 months ago)
Hi adrockr2! That depends - For a dedicated mining rig, yes, I would still choose this driver. For a mixed mining and gaming or casual mining rig, I would suggest the most current Adrenalin drivers. The Adrenalin drivers offer stability and compute mode for mining. Depending on the miner you use, you may not lose much hashing power despite using the gaming drivers in compute mode. The Blockchain driver is designed for mining, not a very good choice for an everyday use / dedicated mining rig.

How to play heavy games with this blockchain driver?
SamsTechStuff (4 months ago)
No problem! Happy Hashing and Gaming!
fininho rs (4 months ago)
thank you
SamsTechStuff (4 months ago)
Hi Fininho rs! Unfortunately, the blockchain driver is not designed for gaming and will perform poorly in games. The newest Adrenelin drivers appear to be nearly as fast with the added benefit of good mining performance. I suggest trying them.
ADRIAN ESCUDER (6 months ago)
Hello!! great video! i would like to ask if its normal to get 22-23 Mhs on a sapphire rx570 itx 4GB (elpida), I cant seem to get it over that, iom using blockchain drivers added patcher and overclocked to 1050/2000. Any sugggestions? Also im using a bios mod but i dont really know if its the correct one. Thanks and good video!
SamsTechStuff (4 months ago)
Some cards had 256KB BIOS's and that's ok. You just want to make sure you capture the BIOS with the ATI Flash Tool.
ADRIAN ESCUDER (6 months ago)
I was able to make it work it was going smooth until the new one stopped mining ...it stops everytime maybe the bios is not correct do you know where can i find a bios for this card (256kb)?
ADRIAN ESCUDER (6 months ago)
Hello again my friend! I was able to get another rx 570 pulse itx 4gb just like the first one but im having troubles flashing the bios when i try to flash it it says rom cant be erased. Ive seen that the new bios is only 256kb and the one from the first card was 512kb but the memory is the same (elpida)... what am I doing wrong? And thanks again ^^
SamsTechStuff (6 months ago)
Hi Adrian! That is great news! I'm glad you're getting more out of the card now. Any overclock that is stable and that doesn't produce invalid shares is good. Some cards go higher than others, some lower. Thank you for the support!
ADRIAN ESCUDER (6 months ago)
Well this is something now, i did all the process again and im now currently at 29 mh :))))))))))) thankyou so much dude you are a god!!!! Gpu clock 1200 memory clock 2025 is that too high? and thank you again you earned a sub for life :P
Harith Sufri (6 months ago)
Do I have to uninstall the AMD Radeon driver 18.2.1 on my pc to install this Blockchain driver? Can I install both? I'm using my pc both for gaming and mining.
SamsTechStuff (6 months ago)
Hi Harith! You unfortunately cannot install both, you will need to pick one. The Blockchain driver is optimized for mining specifically, I would not suggest it for a PC that you will be gaming on. Only the RX Vega graphics cards take the largest hit by using standard gaming drivers.
YogaFlameTV (6 months ago)
I tried to instal the 18.22? Amd driver and when I reboot the computer or psu will not start turns on for one second and then off. My first mining rig annoying cause I was getting 20mh just now found out their is a compute mode and gaming mode.. tried to install the amd drivers now system won't turn on.. any ideas? Also may of had the bios switched on the GPu during this .. it initially did a partial install and didn't work I restarted then I did the beta 18.22 and then power surge after reboot
SamsTechStuff (6 months ago)
If you flash a custom BIOS on any cards in the system but do not run the AMD Pixel Patcher successfully, you may have black screens / crashes / reboots / disabled graphics cards in the device manager. I would remove any graphics cards that have custom un-signed BIOS's and boot the PC. Remove the driver with DDU, I have a video on this as well. Then shut the PC down and reinstall the custom BIOS graphics cards. After, you should be able to boot the PC then install the driver of choice and run the Pixel Patcher. After rebooting you should be good to go. I have on occasion forgotten to do this and run into very similar issues.

This app can’t run on your pc. How doi fix this ? I am admin and disabled safe scan (or whatever was the name)
SamsTechStuff (6 months ago)
Ah, that does happen sometimes. Glad it worked out for you!

SamsTechStuff problem solved, somehow the application i downloaded was 0byte maybe sone error with connection. Downloading it again solved the problem.
SamsTechStuff (6 months ago)
Can you post the full error message? It is possible you may need to run the application with a different account that has administrative privileges.

i got it for xfx rx-560D 4gb and it works...originally, with stock bios i had 8000mhs,,,after bios mod i got 10,700mhs and with this driver and little underclock of GPU and overclock of memory, i got 12,900-13,000mhs...
Charlie Harper (7 months ago)
SamsTechStuff i am amateut at mining, i just came in the store and asked for Rx560 4gb ... they gave me this XFX , and it came out to be some weird mix of rx 460 and rx 560 .... it consumes 25-30w
SamsTechStuff (7 months ago)
Glad you have it up and running! You must have quite a GPUs!
Harrymation Games (7 months ago)
Please tell me it's a latest version or old version and if it's old can run in my computer

The Beta Blockchain drivers are from August 2017. There are no newer Blockchain drivers at this time.
STAT303954 (8 months ago)
i downloaded the aug 23 release but after i got them installed it says the driver date is 8/8/2017, is this normal lol?
SamsTechStuff (8 months ago)
Yup, this is normal. My rigs have that date too!

Bravo! Do we need to uninstall the drivers first? Great video. I am working on project and getting all the info before i start. Good job man!
SamsTechStuff (8 months ago)
Awesome! I have a 4GB RX 570 myself and I love it!
First Name Last Name (8 months ago)
Planning to buy the rx570 sapphire nitro+ :) so i guess that is part of it?
SamsTechStuff (8 months ago)
Yes, uninstall whatever drivers you currently have with DDU, then reboot and install the August 23rd Beta Blockchain mining drivers. That should help a bit with mining, especially if you have a higher end Polaris or any Vega based graphics card.
First Name Last Name (8 months ago)
Ohk. So use the DDU Tool, first. That will uninstall the drivers. Then, install the blockchain drivers ? Which will theb install the drivers to the high performance
SamsTechStuff (8 months ago)
Hi, technically no. I would always remove the old driver first with the DDU tool. I have a video on driver removal here: https://youtu.be/hBbXvEeNY08

Thanks Man, you did it all. Your voice is very cool. Please kindly software add download links in your videos to make it easy on your viewers. keep it up
SamsTechStuff (8 months ago)
Thanks! I will look into that very soon :)
Marcio de Oliveira Matos (8 months ago)
Thank you very much man, I am trying to configure my blockchain driver since december 15, and all the time I got only 60% of my GPU hash rate, and now it's working on 100% of the hash rate !
SamsTechStuff (8 months ago)
Awesome! Glad to see this helping :) Happy hashing!

when are realeasing the new one? I got still that one: Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition Beta for Blockchain Compute Driver for Windows® 10 64-bit​
SamsTechStuff (9 months ago)
Hi Francesco, it is unknown if another dedicated mining driver will be released. Despite being in beta, this driver does work if you're mining. I believe AMD is trying to integrate the advances in this driver into future production drivers. In one of the recent drivers there was a tab to select compute mode. We'll keep our eyes peeled for any changes and post them.
