How do I use Gamma?

It’s simple! Just open the application, sign in, and let your computer idle with no mouse movement until it begins working OR click the start button to manually begin working. We recommend leaving the app open (or open in your app tray) all the time with mouse movement checked-on in the settings. This will make sure that Gamma starts working automatically when you head to bed, leave for school, or while you work your day job!

Does Gamma take a fee on the work performed?

Gamma does take a small fee for the work performed to ensure a great product experience. 

Will Gamma slow down my PC?

Since Gamma uses a lot of your GPU to crunch numbers, it will slow down your computer—but only while the app is working! For that reason, we recommend using the mouse movement detection, so when you’re playing a game Gamma will stop working so you can enjoy your game!

Does Gamma support CPU mining?

Yes, Gamma supports CPU mining as a secondary alternate. When Gamma detects that the PC is not having a proper graphics card, it will try to initiate CPU mining if the CPU is great than or equal to Intel Core i5. However, please note that CPU mining is not as effective as GPU mining, so it will take a longer time for CPU mining to reach the same mining result as GPU mining does.

How many Razer Silver can I expect to earn daily?

The amount of Razer Silver you get depends on the amount of time the Gamma app is running and the available resources your computer (GPU) brings to the table. Razer Silver earning rates vary day to day. 

What OS does Gamma support?

Gamma is currently only supported on Windows 10.

What is the minimum hardware requirement?

We highly recommend running Gamma on a computer with a GPU memory of at least 6 GB on one of the following graphics card models or above: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB or AMD Radeon RX 570 8GB.  It is also recommended to have at least 20-30 GB of available hard drive space.
