fuguecoin-gpu-miner

Fuguecoin (FC) is a new alternative crypto currency using a new Fugue256 algorithm that launched yesterday as a CPU only coin and there is already a GPU miner available. If you want to give the coin a go and try the sph-sgminer with support for Fuguecoin we have compiled a windows binary that you can download and use (source). The coin is with uncertain future now that it is no longer a CPU only coin, though there is only one pool that apparently has some issues (we could not connect to it), so you will have to try and solo mine with the wallet. Also there are still no exchanges for this new crypto, so it is up to you to decide if you should give it some time or no… we are not going to. Below you can download the modified version of sgminer with Fuguecoin support for mining on GPU under Windows.

cgminer-heavycoin-cpu-miner

So long with Heavycoin (HVC) being a CPU only coin, now there is an OpenCL miner available for GPU mining the coin with a much faster speed than on a processor. We have compiled the modified version of cgminer 3.7.3 with Heavycoin support for windows and you can download the binary from the link below (source). We are getting about 5 MHS on Radeon R9 280x GPUs as you can see on the screenshot. We have tested the miner and can confirm it is working fine on the 1GH HVC pool, though it may also work on others as well. Due to the rapid increase in pool load you might want to try using hvcpool.1gh.com and hvcpool2.1gh.com as backup, also make sure configure the miner. And soon we may also see a CUDA miner for GPU mining Heavycoin also available from the developer of cudaminer as well. So no longer point in mining HVC on the CPU only anymore.

cgminer-3-7-2-gridseed-windows

We have compiled an updated version of the cgminer 3.7.2 for Gridseed 5-chip ASIC devices with some small fixes and have an option to try and overclock the device over the previously available maximum limit of 1000 MHz. Now you can try running the device at 1050, 1100, 1150, 1200, 1250 and 1300 MHz, though these in our experience going past 950 MHz will most likely produce only hardware errors, you are still welcome to try. So far 850 MHz operating frequency for Scrypt only mining mode seems to produce the best results with most devices, though you are welcome to experiment with yours. For a guide on how to install and use the Gridseed 5-chip ASICS with this cgminer. Also note that cgminer 3.7.2 for Gridseed does require you to replace the standard virtual USB to COM driver with WinUSB driver with the help of the software Zadig in order for cgminer to be able to detect and use the GSD ASIC devices.
