Christian Buchner, the author of the CudaMiner software for mining popular alternative crypto currencies on Nvidia-based GPUs has just released another software called CCminer that is intended to support CUDA GPU mining for Heavycoin (HVC) and Fuguecoin (FC). The GPU miner for Nvidia seems to be offering better performance than the recently released AMD GPU miner for HVC. We have compiled a x86/x64 windows binary from the source code with Compute 3.5 capability and with Visual Studio 2012 (if you are getting errors when running about missing Dll file you may need to download and install Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012).

The performance we are getting on a GeForce GTX 750 Ti card with no overclock is about 4 MHS (4000 KHS) and on a GeForce GTX 780 Ti we get about 10.5 MHS (10500 KHS) with no overclock and raised power limiter to 106%. So if you have a few Nvidia-based GPUs you might want to try mining Heavycoin for a bit with them while the HVC exchange rate is still decent and with some AMD GPU miners getting away from HVC mining. In our experience the 64-bit version of the miner does give less shale shares (less booos) as compared to the x86 binary, though not much difference in performance in terms of hashrate between the two.

I can’t to run ccminer on my NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT. Write the .bat file for it. Please, help!

This is a build for newer cards, and there is no need to configure the miner like you would with cudaminer with various kernel settings etc, for older card you might want to try the official binary release from here: https://github.com/cbuchner1/ccminer/releases

Don’t use the ccminer-0.1-windows.zip posted here. It does not match our original release (file size slightly bigger than our official x86 build).

Unintended virus payload is a possibility.

okay, I just read the post by “admin”.

If it is really just a build for newer cards, and you can guarantee this I will take back the warning about the possible virus payload. However it’s still not the same as our release we posted to github ;)

Christian Buchner, we don’t like to be accused of distributing viruses when in fact we are not.

We have compiled the binary ourselves from your source code, we have explained what is different, provided a link to the source code for anyone willing to compile it himself, and everyone is welcome to download the official binary release if does not have a trust in us… however we don’t like been accused of something we do not do.

We are trying to help the crypto community here, not hurt it, there is (was) Gox for that :)

ok cool.

I did not read your post initially, and the differing file sizes made me suspicious.

But now everthing is OK. You can delete my first posting if you want.

What compute capability is your binary built for? CC 3.0 or 3.5? also note that we (accidentially?) set a compute_10, sm_10 target for the cuda_hefty1.cu file in the Visual C++ Project, which overrides project wide settings.

We’ve compiled for sm_35 and compute_35, thanks for the info we will update the binary with the overrides for 10 removed now to see if there will be any performance difference as well as compile 64-bit binary. And thanks for the good work with the miner :)

Not much of a difference in performance after recompiling, though the 64-bit version does seem to give less stales as compared to the x86 compiled one that we’ve released initially, performance is pretty much the same though.

This blog is a great resource for the Mining community, a few minutes here can determine that!
