If you are a user of the Hive OS monitoring and management system, you no longer have to choose between AMD and NVIDIA cards. With Hive OS, you can “merge” them into one GPU rig. Firstly, it will allow you to save on paying for Hive OS because the computing power will be concentrated not in several rigs, but in one. Secondly, you will waste no time looking for suitable video cards from the same manufacturer.

Hive OS is “equipped” with already installed drivers for both AMD and NVIDIA, which allows you to combine cards in one rig without any problems.

To start mining on AMD and NVIDIA at the same time, you should create a new flight sheet in Hive OS. To do this, log into your account, go to your farm, and then select the Flight Sheets tab. In the window for creating a new flight sheet, you will need to fill in the following fields:

  • Coin;
  • Wallet;
  • Pool;
  • Miner;
  • Name of the flight sheet.

Please note that flight sheets support the configuration of multiple miners. Thus, you can configure the new flight sheet to work both by platforms (AMD, NVIDIA) and by card groups, using the miner settings for choosing a rig (by device number or by platform). Check out the help information in the additional configuration options for the miner in Hive OS. It will be available when you hover over the Info icon:

Besides, keep in mind that a miner can support both platforms at the same time. Claymore ETH and PhoenixMiner on certain algorithms (Bminer, NBMiner, Gminer) can serve as examples. In this case, one miner in a flight sheet will be enough.

After entering all the required information, click the Create Flight Sheet button. Done! Now you can apply the new flight sheet to the rig with AMD and NVIDIA cards and start making money.

If you still have any questions, do not hesitate to ask them here. We are happy to help you at any time of the day. Also, take a look at our extensive knowledge base.

Mine easily and profitably with Hive OS!
