Time for another update in the form of a compiled a Windows binary from the latest source code of ccMiner 1.5.44-git SP-MOD fork of the Nvidia GPU miner optimized for the latest Maxwell-based video cards by SP (source). The latest code while still labeled as 1.5.44 comes with some more fixes and performance improvements in the Quark and Qubit algorithms – the two algorithms that are most profitable to mine at the moment with Nvidia GPUs at the moments. 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 and GTX 980. The Windows binary release we have made available here is compiled with support for Compute 5.0 and Compute 5.2 GPUs or with other words only for Maxwell-based cards with CUDA 6.5 and VS2013.

If you are wondering what to currently mine with your Nvidia-based GPUs such as Nvidia GTX 750 Ti or GTX 980 for example, then you might want to check Quark and Qubit as algorithms they seem to be quite profitable to mine on Nvidia. If you do make sure you have the latest version of ccMiner and we have just compiled a Windows binary from the latest source code of ccMiner 1.5.44-git SP-MOD fork of the Nvidia GPU miner optimized for the latest Maxwell-based video cards by SP (source). The latest version comes with some fixes and performance improvements in the Quark and Qubit algorithms, though the performance increase of Qubit is apparently better than the increase of hashrate in Quark.

The SP-MOD fork is designed for running on Nvidia Maxwell GPUs such as the already available GTX 750, 750 Ti as well as the newer GTX 960, GTX 970 and GTX 980. The windows binary release we have made available here is compiled with support for Compute 5.0 and Compute 5.2 GPUs or with other words only for Maxwell-based cards with CUDA 6.5 and VS2013. We have done some quick tests comparing the latest update with improved Quark and Qubit performance to the previous .43 release on GTX 750 Ti and GTX 980 and below you can see the results to get an idea on what yu can expect in terms of performance increase:

GTX 750 Ti
– Quark .43 – 5395 KHS
– Quark .44 – 5420 KHS
– Qubit .43 – 4319 KHS
– Qubit .44 – 4440 KHS

GTX 980
– Quark .43 – 15338 KHS
– Quark .44 – 15558 KHS
– Qubit .43 – 13771 KHS
– Qubit .44 – 14115 KHS
