Another update to the cgminer 3.7.3 for Heavycoin (HVC) GPU mining on AMD GPUs. The latest OpenCL kernel update brings some extra Megahashes out of the hardware over the previously available release of the miner, even though mining on Nvidia seems to still be ahead in term of performance with the latest ccMiner 0.5. With the new updated version that you can download from the link below for windows (Linux source here). With the new update you can expect to get something like up to 50% more performance, or this is what we are seeing after running our tests on a Radeon R9 280x. We got up to 12.8 MHS on that particular card after getting up to about 8.8 MHS with the previous release. Not bad and if you are mining HVC, then you should most definitely update your miner in order to be able to enjoy the extra performance gain with the new version.

After some updates for Groestlcoin and Fuguecoin in the previous releases, the new ccMiner 0.5 comes with a significant performance improvement for Heavycoin (HVC) mining on Nvidia-based GPUs. The new version of the mining software brings up to twice the performance improvement on older cards and it can go even up to triple on GTX 750 Ti Maxwell cards, so it is good to update if you are still using the older version of the miner. The new release of ccMiner does add the option -d for selecting a particular device that you should know from using CudaMiner. You can download the official binary release for windows below and you can also compile from the source as well. The new version comes with precompiled binaries for Compute 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 cards, so on older cards you will most likely have to run the 2.0 compiled binary and for the 700 series the Compute 3.5 should be the best option. Our tests have shown that we got more than twice the performance on a GTX 780 Ti graphics card where with the latest version we are getting around 23 MHS mining HVC as you can see on the screenshot above. With that level of performance the AMD GPU miner for Heavycoin is left way back with much slower performance you can get from a high-end GPU, even though that software miner also gets performance optimizations.

There have been some additional updates in the Heavycoin cgminer GPU miner that bring out extra performance, so if you are currently mining HVS then you better update to the latest release. The results we are getting are with more than 1.5 MHS higher than with the previous version that has also added some performance improvements. With the older release that we have compiled and published here we’ve got around 7.2 MHS from a single Radeon R9 280X GPU and with the latest binary we are getting up to about 8.8 MHS with the same hardware (1000 GPU /1500 VRAM), so definitely a very good improvement performance wise. Below you can download the latest cgminer 3.7.3 with support for HVC GPU mining compiled for windows.
