Claymore’s Zcash AMD GPU Miner v1.0 Now Available for Windows

4 Nov

claymore-zcash

Claymore has just released his new miner targeted at Zcash (ZEC) miners and only for Windows at the moment, probably making it the fastest AMD OpenCL GPU miner at the moment for Windows OS. Do note that the miner is free, but there is currently a developer fee set at 2.5%, meaning that every hour the miner mines for 90 seconds for developer. According to Claymore this initial release is only for recent AMD video cards only: 7xxx, 2xx, 3xx and 4xx, 2GB or more and it does not support Nvidia GPUs with only Windows x64 binaries available at the moment for download.

A bit something about speeds with the new Zcash miner from Claymore, they are higher than what other Windows GPU miners were offering prior to the release of this miner (there are apparently faster Linux miners like SilentArmy’s V3 for example). A stock AMD Radeon 280X seems to do about 44-45 H/s, AMD Radeon 290X does a bit more at about 46-47 H/s, AMD Radeon 370 does about 35 H/s, AMD Radeon RX 480 does about 40-41 H/s in our initial tests. Feel free to share your hashrate results in the comments below if you do try the new miner…

It looks as though ZEC mining is significantly less intense on hardware.
My temps are 40% lower on ZEC than when mining ETH. I would imagine that the power costs slightly lower such lower intensity.
From what I can see, memory overclocking seems to give better returns on MH per % increase than GPU clock.

I’d rather mine an hour per day free willingly to Genoil than be forced to mine for Claymore!

Genoil forever!
