All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
There hasn’t been much happening at the official github repository of sgminer for some time (source), so we have not posted a new windows binary compiled from there recently. However they just added some new algorithms and have bumped the version number to 5.1.1, so we’ve had to compile a new binary to try out the new algorithms that were added. The latest sgminer 5.1.1 now does include support for Lyra2RE, Pluck and WhirlpoolX algorithms, so no need to use different forks of sgminer for each of these algorithms. And since these algorithms were added in the official sgminer we can now update our Miner Control package for AMD Radeon R9 280X GPUs that we haven’t updated for a while, so stay tuned for the update. Meanwhile you can download and try the new windows binary with the added support for the three new algorithms.
