WhirlCoin is the first coin to use the new Whirlpool algorithm and while it was CPU only coin originally now there is support for GPU mining on Nvidia available thanks to djm34’s fork of ccMiner that just got whirlpool support added (source). We have compiled a windows binary of the new release and on a GeForce GTX 750 Ti video card we are getting a hashrate of almost 4400 KHS and about 11500 KHS on GTX 780 Ti. Have in mind that this ccMiner fork does support not only whirlpool algorithm, but many other as well, including whirlpool for example and other newer ones as well. For the moment there is still not AMD GPU minor available for this new algorithm, but there will most likely soon be available a fork of sgminer.

The windows binary available here is compiled for Compute 3.0, 3.5 and newer cards (32-bit version only) in a single binary, so it will not work on older cards. If you are unsure what version of Compute does your video card support check the included GPU Compute Capabilities List file. The binary is compiled with Visual Studio 2010 and is backwards compatible with Windows XP as well if you are using it on your mining rig.
