Updated Ethminer 0.9.41 Nvidia CUDA Version for Windows

7 Sep
2015

ethminer-0-9-41-cuda-new

Genoil, the developer of the Ethminer fork with Nvidia CUDA support (source) has been actively working and there have been some other people contributing code, so we have compiled an up to date Windows binary of ethminer with CUDA support. Do note that this Windows binary release is compiled with VS2013 for Windows 64-bit and is for CUDA 6.5 as previous versions were compiled for CUDA 7.5, so there could be some performance differences between the different versions. The latest version comes with some optimizations that should increase a bit the performance when using the CUDA mode with the miner, however there are also some differences as you may need to manually specify the number of GPUs to use if you have multiple cards using the cuda-devices command line parameter if the miner fires only on one device. Additionally to get better performance you can try adding the following command line parameters to the ethminer:

For OpenCL: --cl-global-work 16384
For CUDA: --cuda-grid-size 8192 --cuda-block-size 128 --cuda-turbo

The Ethminer CUDA fork should work on Compute 2.0 or newer GPUs, but the performance on older GPUs can be worse, also don’t forget that you can run Ethminer in OpenCL mode as well on Nvidia-based video cards and not only on AMD if you are having trouble with the CUDA support or the hashrate you get is lower as compared to OpenCL.

Download the updated Ethminer CUDA fork compiled for Windows and ready to be used…

Sorry guys, this release is superseded already. Latest release has –cuda-turbo replaced by –cuda-schedule. Much better!

Hi,

I have downloaded the update and extracted the files in c:\Mining (I did not delete the previous files)
I have created an account, replaced the address in \ethminer-cuda-0.9.41-new\ethpool-cuda.bat
But I am getting an error when I run ethpool-cuda.bat

Can anyone tell me what is going wrong ?

The updated version compiled with CUDA 6.5 is coming later today.

Guido, the problem is with ethpool (they have temporary disabled mining), not the miner… try with a different pool.

Alright, I have started nanopool-cuda.bat
Apparently I am mining

but eth.nanopool.org can’t find my adress, it says that I have to add my address to the database ???

Contrary to ccminer sp-mod, ethminer cuda is best compiled with CUDA 7.5. Gives 5% extra hash rate on GTX750ti/Linux.

Thanks to admin and Genoil! Nothing more to say…

@Guido
Aside from your address issue: I don’t think you are using you GPU. Your hash rate is very low…

He is mining under windows 8 or 8.1
750Ti give approximately this hashrate under win8+

@Aminer @chavy Thanks I am mining under Windows 2012 R2. I will try to update the driver.

however, the GPU-Z show ONLY one card to mining, if i remove the -U or -G, all card cannot be full freq to minging, 6 cards only 1.4M to mining.

GTX 750 Ti does seem to have some problems with the hashrate under Windows, people seem to have better success with Linux. As for multiple cards, you need to use the cuda-devices command line parameter and specify the GPUs as mentioned in the post above.

admin, can you give some tips of step by step install ethminer in the linux, PIMP or Ubuntu? i tried Ubuntu last night follow of https://forum.ethereum.org/discussion/197/mining-faq-live-updates, i am failure of install last setp, i can install driver(cuda 5.7.deb, and paa package),but i try ethminer -G -M, it will be system halted。

I can say that a plain 750 should at least give some Mhash (3-4) under Windows 8.1/2Server 2012 (Linux 8M+ OCed, 7-8M? with Win 7). Not sure about the TI, but don’t think it will be only 1/10th – even my CPUs are faster. Will check with some TIs as soon as they arrive.
