I am awaiting BladeBit Disk Plot.

When will BladeBit Disk Plot be available for my hardware (CPU + 128GB RAM)?
How will I know what compression level to go for? 5 or 6?


How many memory slots do you have left open? And you have your windows disk, a temp drive and destination disk correct?

I am refusing to buy a GPU or more RAM.

I have a decent NVME and 430TB of destination HDDs.

I think BB DiskPlot in Chia2.1 will support 128GB RAM machines using CPU only (no GPU).

I guess you will just have to wait, Your NVidia Quadro K420 doesn’t have enough memory to make compressed plots. And when they come out with the 128gb you will still need a video card, This is what I’m using. I shopped on Ebay and some great deals
EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 XC GAMING Graphics Card - GPU - 12GB GDDR6 | eBay
This is a working card.

Thanks, I didn’t think I need a graphics card. Let me have a look.

I posted the card type that one is parts only sorry, was just getting the part number.

I got mine working for around $240.00 at the time.
Can always make an offer and see if they bit…

stick with C5 compression if you don’t want to add a GPU.

BB diskplot does not have an ETA yet, a month maybe more. Still a lot of things on the 2do list

Edit: I would advise buying a gpu for plotting, then sell it again when you’re done.


You have to have toys to play…


Thanks, I’m based in UK.

I’ll look at 3060 or 3060Ti.
