New sgminer 5.0 beta Fork with X15 Support Now Available

sgminer-5-0-beta-x15-fork

It seems that we are now moving from X11 and X13 to X15 as a few coins have already been launched or will be launched soon using the new X15 algorithm, so you need a new GPU miner in order to be able to mine them. Fortunately there is already a X15-capable fork of sgminer 5.0 beta available (source). We have compiled a windows binary that you can download and try below, our tests on an AMD Radeon R9 280X GPU have shown a hashrate of about 2300 KHS, so the performance is quite good when you consider that there are more algorithms in the X15 than in X13 and X11, so lower performance is to be expected.

You can download the new sgminer 5.0 beta fork with X15 support compiled for Windows OS here…

Looks like the download is missing th4e x15 kernel file in the zip\kernel folder.

Should config be x15 or x15mod?

Thanks.

Its bitblock for the kernel. But in my case its not working for me, get rejects and closing miner results in having to restart the computer.

Win7x64.

bitblock is the kernel used for X15, this is the name of one of the X15 crypto coins. This is an early version with X15 support, so some more tweaking and fixing may be required for the new algorithm to work well on various hardware and systems.

There is no bat file, though you might want to check the config file, sgminer might not be finding the GPUs for some reason, so the gpu-platform option could help (some people report problems with the latest AMD drivers)

Alternatively just delete the config file and make sure to use as algorithm bitblock for X15.
