All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
We have updated our windows build of the cgminer 3.7.2 with support for Gridseed 5-chip GC3355 ASICs to properly support the new 80-chip Gridseed G-Blade miners, this release is based on the (girnyau source) with the fix for more than 8 chips (up to 256) from dbartle’s version. Previous releases did not properly reported the local hashrate of the new Gridseed G-Blade miners that consist of two 40-chip PCBs, though they were working just fine with the hardware and poolside everything was Ok. Now if you set the chips value from 5 to 40 in the BAT file for running the cgminer you should be seeing the correct local hashrate for the G-Blade, it should work just fine though we haven’t been able to test it as we do not yet have a G-Blade in our hands. Other than that the updated version is compiled and packaged with the latest OpenSSL libraries with a fix for the the Heartbleed bug. You can download the windows binary below and the source folder contains the files modified from the original source should you want to compile it yourself. Check the Readme file for more information on the list of supported frequencies and how to set individual frequencies per device for overclocking your Gridseed ASIC miners.
