Another update to the cgminer 3.7.3 for Heavycoin (HVC) GPU mining on AMD GPUs. The latest OpenCL kernel update brings some extra Megahashes out of the hardware over the previously available release of the miner, even though mining on Nvidia seems to still be ahead in term of performance with the latest ccMiner 0.5. With the new updated version that you can download from the link below for windows (Linux source here). With the new update you can expect to get something like up to 50% more performance, or this is what we are seeing after running our tests on a Radeon R9 280x. We got up to 12.8 MHS on that particular card after getting up to about 8.8 MHS with the previous release. Not bad and if you are mining HVC, then you should most definitely update your miner in order to be able to enjoy the extra performance gain with the new version.
