All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
After some updates for Groestlcoin and Fuguecoin in the previous releases, the new ccMiner 0.5 comes with a significant performance improvement for Heavycoin (HVC) mining on Nvidia-based GPUs. The new version of the mining software brings up to twice the performance improvement on older cards and it can go even up to triple on GTX 750 Ti Maxwell cards, so it is good to update if you are still using the older version of the miner. The new release of ccMiner does add the option -d for selecting a particular device that you should know from using CudaMiner. You can download the official binary release for windows below and you can also compile from the source as well. The new version comes with precompiled binaries for Compute 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 cards, so on older cards you will most likely have to run the 2.0 compiled binary and for the 700 series the Compute 3.5 should be the best option. Our tests have shown that we got more than twice the performance on a GTX 780 Ti graphics card where with the latest version we are getting around 23 MHS mining HVC as you can see on the screenshot above. With that level of performance the AMD GPU miner for Heavycoin is left way back with much slower performance you can get from a high-end GPU, even though that software miner also gets performance optimizations.
