New cgminer 3.7.8 With Improved Neoscrypt Performance

2 Nov


There is an update of the official cgminer with Neoscrypt support to version 3.7.8 that adds new kernel with better performance and make the miner work with the latest AMD drivers 14.9, something that was not working with the older 3.7.7b miner. We have compiled a windows binary of the new cgminer 3.7.8 Neoscrypt (source) that you can download from the link below and try. Our first test on a AMD Radeon R9 280X without overclock has shown a performance of about 140 KHS, so about 50 percent increase from the older version and some people report going close to 200 with overclocked cards. Since there is still no CUDA miner for Neoscrypt available you can use this cgminer with OpenCL on Nvidia-based GPUs as well, though on Nvidia you are probably not going to see much of an improvement over the previous version of the miner.

What settings?

The settings are in the example bat files for running the miner on AMD or Nvidia GPUs, but do note that different settings work different on various hardware, so do experiment with values to see what works best on your GPUs.

I get only rejected with any settings, what can be the reason, which catalyst driver do I need?

This kernel should work with the 14.9 drivers as well, but you better go for the latest release of sgminer 5 dev that comes with a higher performance kernel for Neoscrypt in order to get the maximum hashrate out of your hardware.
