There has not been an update to the public ccMiner fork by SP of his Nvidia Maxwell optimized miner for quite some time, but he has just released some optimizations and so here comes a new Windows binary compiled from the latest Git source code of the ccMiner 1.5.78-git SP-MOD fork (source). The latest release comes with some small performance improvements in many algorithms, namely x11, x13, x14, x15, x17, nist5 and quark, so if you are mining any of these you might want to update. Have in mind that is also a CUDA 7.5 compiled release, the latest CUDA 6.5 release of SP’s fork of ccMiner was version 74. Do note that the SP-MOD fork of ccMiner is designed for Nvidia Maxwell GPUs such as the already available GTX 750, 750 Ti as well as the newer GTX 960, GTX 970, GTX 980 and GTX 980 Ti and GTX Titan X. The Windows binary release we have made available here is with support for Compute 5.0 and Compute 5.2 GPUs or with other words only for Maxwell-based Nvidia video cards compiled with CUDA 7.5 and VS2013.
