Updated ccMiner 1.7.3 fork by tpruvot With Improved Decred Support

22 Feb


A quick update with a new Windows binary compiled from the latest ccMiner 1.7.3-git fork from tpruvot (source) with some improvements regarding the Decred (DCR) that uses a bit different Blake256 14-round algorithm. This release supports Decred mining with both the traditional getwork implementation as well as the getwork over stratum support that yiimp and some other pools have already implemented. The release below includes two versions of ccMiner, one is 32-bit binary for Windows that is compiled with CUDA 6.5 and with support for Compute 2.0 or newer Nvidia GPUs, and another that is 64-bit Windows binary compiled with CUDA 7.5 for Compute 3.5 or newer Nvidia GPUs. Do note that if you have a newer Nvidia video card you should use the 64-bit CUDA 7.5 release as it is providing better hashrate than the 32-bit CUDA 6.5 binary. Below is a quick comparison of the performance of the two versions on a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 WF3OC GPU running at stock frequencies.

Decred (DCR) performance on GTX 970:
– 32-bit CUDA 6.5: 1189 MHS
– 64-bit CUDA 7.5: 1298 MHS
