New cpuminer Fork With Multiple Algorithms Supported

If you have some spare CPU power for mining various GPU mineable algorithms along with the GPU mining rigs and use the generated heat to keep you warm at home this winter, then you might want to check out the new cpuminer fork from Tanguy Pruvot (source). This fork has support not only for the common ASIC mineable SHA256d and Scrypt algorithms that you don’t need to bother with on a CPU anyway, but also for many other algorithms such as X11, X13, X14, X15, Cryptonight, Fresh, Blake, Neoscrypt and others. The performance you can get from a single CPU is nowhere near that a GPU can generate, but still if you manage to mine enough to partially cover the electricity used and use the heat generated from the CPU to keep you warm in the winter it might not be that bad… especially if you use the available CPU power of any GPU mining rigs that you are utilizing already.

When I use the CPU to mine on my GPU rig the GPU hashrate goes down. Even using only 50% of the CPU lowers GPU hashrate. All the X algos and the others I tested I’d lose hashrate on GPU.
If I disabled onboard VGA would this help? It’s all I could think of, even though I don’t think the rig is using onboard VGA I don’t know why CPU mining is lowering my GPU hashrate. The CPU is I7 so 50% should be plenty of power to still mine using GPU. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

GPU mining does require some CPU power as well, so it is normal when you run a CPU miner that takes up a lot of CPU resources to get lower performance for the GPU mining. You can try playing with priorities, setting the lowest one to the CPU miner and higher priority for the GPU miner to see if it will help.
