Time for another windows binary release based on the latest code of the ccMiner 1.5-git SP-MOD fork of the Nvidia miner optimized for Maxwell GPUs by SP (source). Since the last windows binary we have published a few days ago there have been a lot of fixes and improvements made to the code and we were pleasantly surprised today to see a significant performance improvement. The results we are getting in terms of hashrate on our stock test GTX 980 GPU for X11 have gone up from about 7900 KHS with the previous release to over 8300 KHS and for X13 up from a bit over 6200 KHS to about 6700 KHS. There are also hashrate optimizations for other algorithms – NIST5 is up to about 26500 KHS, so performance should increase not only for X-based coins, so definitely a recommended update for owners of Maxwell-based Nvidia GPUs such as GTX 750 series and GTX 970/980. There seems to be a bug with the launch config of X15 for Computer 5.2 cards as on GTX 750s it works fine, also the improvements are also present for GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti users, but the hashrate increase is not so big. Do note that this fork of ccMiner is supports only Maxwell cards as it is optimized and compiled for Compute 5.0 and 5.2 architecture.
