A new update in the form of a new Windows binary release compiled from the latest Git source code of the ccMiner 1.5.63-git SP-MOD fork of the Nvidia GPU miner optimized for the latest Maxwell-based video cards by SP (source). The latest version includes more fixes and some slight hashrate improvements. 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 cards compiled with CUDA 6.5 and VS2013.
Update: We have compiled and updated the binary with the latest code changes that include significant increase in performance for BlakeCoin – up to about 70% increase in the hashrate. As an example with GTX 980 Ti the older ccMiner could get up about 2.033 GHS and with the updated version the performance we get now form the same GPU is 3.531 GHS, a GTX 950 GPU is up from about 677 MHS to 1.17 GHS, so the increase is very significant. Due to the high difficulty that BlakeCoin (BLC) has because of it being merge mined with multiple other coins this performance increase might actually make it interesting to actually mine it with Nvidia GPUs.
