ccMiner 1.0 beta Fork with Support for Older Compute 2.x GPUs

21 May
2014

ccminer-compute-2-support

The support for older Nvidia-based GPUs using Compute 2/2.1 architecture (Fermi) has been dropped in the more recent versions of ccMiner in order to focus and improve performance on the newer Compute 3 and 3.5 (Kepler) as well as 5 (Maxwell) GPUs. It seems however there are still quite a few people that are using Fermi-based Nvidia graphic cards to mine crypto coins with, so this is something they may find useful. There is a fork of ccMiner compiled with support for Compute 2.0/2.1 (Fermi) GPUs as well as the newer Compute 3.x+ cards. To ensure support for Compute 2.x however the support for Jackpotcoin, Quark and Animecoin is not available as the code for these in ccMiner apparently requires at least Compute 3.0 support. This fork however adds Diamondcoin support that is not available in the original ccMiner release.

Compute 2.0 video cards (Fermi – GF100, GF110):
GeForce GTX 590, GeForce GTX 580, GeForce GTX 570, GeForce GTX 480, GeForce GTX 470, GeForce GTX 465, GeForce GTX 480M, Quadro 6000, Quadro 5000, Quadro 4000, Quadro 4000 for Mac, Quadro Plex 7000, Quadro 5010M, Quadro 5000M, Tesla C2075, Tesla C2050/C2070, Tesla M2050/M2070/M2075/M2090

Compute 2.1 video cards (Fermi – GF104, GF106 GF108,GF114, GF116, GF119):
GeForce GTX 560 Ti, GeForce GTX 550 Ti, GeForce GTX 460, GeForce GTS 450, GeForce GTS 450, GeForce GT 640 (GDDR3), GeForce GT 630, GeForce GT 620, GeForce GT 610, GeForce GT 520, GeForce GT 440, GeForce GT 440, GeForce GT 430, GeForce GT 430, GeForce GTX 675M, GeForce GTX 670M, GeForce GT 635M, GeForce GT 630M, GeForce GT 625M, GeForce GT 720M, GeForce GT 620M, GeForce 710M, GeForce 610M, GeForce GTX 580M, GeForce GTX 570M, GeForce GTX 560M, GeForce GT 555M, GeForce GT 550M, GeForce GT 540M, GeForce GT 525M, GeForce GT 520MX, GeForce GT 520M, GeForce GTX 485M, GeForce GTX 470M, GeForce GTX 460M, GeForce GT 445M, GeForce GT 435M, GeForce GT 420M, GeForce GT 415M, GeForce 710M, GeForce 410M, Quadro 2000, Quadro 2000D, Quadro 600, Quadro 410, Quadro 4000M, Quadro 3000M, Quadro 2000M, Quadro 1000M, NVS 5400M, NVS 5200M, NVS 4200M

Doesn’t work for me on 570GTX. It unrealistic high hash values and never gets accepted. The zip also includes 30 35 and 50. I don’t see a 20 exe there.

No Worky

Same for me, no worky and no mention of support for 2.0 in any of the docs.

tried setting up on darksuchpool.pw with my gtx480 because i wanted to test and see if i was capable of mining darkcoins. Cant get it to work :( and also i dont see the ccminer20 or 21 exe in the zip. I tried to write batfile (im using windows7 64) i used ccminer.exead also all other variants ccminer30/35/50 but hence gtx480 is computing 2.0 it doesnt work. When i try to start the miner first of all i get a message msvcp110.dll is missing, but when i start miner as adminisrator a dosscreen appears and dissapears at the same moment.

my batfile looks like this… im doing something wrong? for my r9 290x card i have similar batfile but using different miner and that one works around 3mh/s

setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
ccminer.exe -a x11 -o stratum+tcp://stratum1.suchpool.pw:3335 -u username -p password –failover-only -o stratum+tcp://stratum2.suchpool.pw:3335 -u username -p password

The download link for this isn’t the right version.

Go to the GitHub link, https://github.com/KBomba/ccminer-KBomba/releases, and download the latest version. This includes an executable for compute 2.x.

From what I can tell, CCminer21 is what we are looking for. I have a gtx 570 I have been mining JPC and DIME with no problem.

Hey guys,

Just saw my release on here, and all of your issues. Seems like the .zip on here didn’t include the ccminer21.exe, which should work on compute2.0 devices too. They have included it now ;-)
I will keep it updated with any compatible commit of the official ccminer. You can stay updated here: https://github.com/KBomba/ccminer-KBomba/releases , as said before (thx Jason!)

@Kintaro: Ccminer doesn’t have failover support. So that won’t work. I’m still hoping he will implement it soon.

My GTX580 does ~1900 khash/s with the 21 exe, close to all shares accepted at 94-95% GPU usage with no additional modifiers.

ccminer21 doesn’t seem to work with Darkcoin on darkcoin.miningpoolhub.com. Getting insane 100,000 khash/s, but doesn’t show up as an active worker on the pool and 0 accepted. Ideas? Thanks!

Same here, running ccminer1.0
“ccminer21.exe –algo=x11 -o statum+tcp://drkpool.com:3333 -u dark_x -p x”

I’m getting 2330198017 hashes. 118344 khash/s and so on, it’s taking 1-5 minutes to finish each line though
But no stats show up at all, I tried ghash.io and darkpool

I’m using a GeForce 8800GTS (cuda 1.1) Win 7×65 clean install, latest nvidia drivers and cuda drivers

johny, your video card is too old and does not support Compute 2.0 or later, so it is not supported.

I figured that was the issue, thanks for the help!

I am trying to use this on linux but all of your releases seem to be for windows. How can I compile this with the promised 2.X support?

There is a link to the source, check the INSTALL file for instructions on compiling under Linux.

I have a GTX570 and downloaded the file that specifies support for Diamondcoin from the Github site. It has the ccminer21.exe but I don’t see the switch for diamondcoin and the standard dmd-gr doesn’t work. I’m trying to execute like this

ccminer21.exe –algo=dmd-gr -o 127.0.0.1:17772 -u iruleyou1.1 -p x

Thanks,
Anthony

Anyone knows about this…
I used ccminer-1.0-windows-compute-2
ccminer30.exe -a x11 -o stratum+tcp://US2.coinmine.pw:3333 -u astig2 -p x
