ccminer-1-5-75-git-spmod

A new update in the form of a Windows binary compiled from the latest Git source code of the ccMiner 1.5.75-git SP-MOD fork by SP optimized for the latest Maxwell-based video cards (source). The new release 75 marks a significant change as the project is now migrated to CUDA 7.5 and is compiled with it as a result the initial release may have slower hashrates for some algorithms than the last CUDA 6.5 release 74. Quark and Lyra2v2 should initially have pretty much the same hashrate while Qubit, X11 and X13 for example should be slightly slower. The most notable decrease in performance is with NeoScrypt, so if you are mining NeoScrypt crypto coins you should not be in a hurry to switch to the 75 release, though we are most likely soon going to see it catching up, so do not forget to support SP with a donation. 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.

nicehash-miner-software

The NiceHash Miner software is a GUI for CPU and GPU mining on NiceHash using cpuminer-multi, ccminer and sgminer as a backend for the actual mining process. The software itself has been available for a while, but initially it had CPU support only and then Nvidia GPU mining was added and now it also comes with AMD GPU mining support built in as well. In the current version all modern CPUs are supported, full range of NVIDIA GPUs from Compute capability 2.1 up to the most recent Maxwell with Compute 5.2 as well as support for all AMD GPUs with OpenCL support, including all 5xx, 6xx, 7xx and R9 series. The newly added sgminer for AMD GPU support also comes with highly optimized pre-built compute bin files for most common AMD GPUs based on Pitcairn, Tahiti and Hawaii chips for X11, X13, X15, Qubit and Quark algorithms – also known as wolf0 and kachur optimized bins in order for the software to get you the best performance. So if you want to mine the most profitable crypto currency on Nicehash and get paid directly in Bitcoin, you might want to check out the NiceHash Miner software. All you have to do the first time you run the software is to enter your Bitcoin wallet address, run the Benchmark mode to determine your hashrate and then you can start mining the most profitable algorithm at hte moment. Do note however that it is only available for Windows!

ccminer-1-5-74-spmod

Another update in the form of a Windows binary compiled from the latest Git source code of the ccMiner 1.5.74-git SP-MOD fork by SP optimized for the latest Maxwell-based video cards (source). The latest release comes with some small performance improvements for as well as fixes that should help resolve issues that some users are experiencing with the lyra2v2 algorithm. 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.
