All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
NiceHash has released an updated version of their Axiom CPU Miner Launcher that provides a simple and easy GUI for running the optimized cpuminer-multi fork (source). The new releases apparently includes optimizations from sandor111 that further increases the performance for mining Axiom on CPU. Compared to the previous version from about a month ago we are seeing about 90% increase in performance on an Intel Core i7 5820K processor and apparently AVX2-capable CPUs seem to have the highest performance increase, though older processors will also get increased hashrate. So if you are mining Axiom on CPU you might want to try the updated miner with GUI to ease the mining on NiceHash and get paid directly in Bitcoin.
