Here comes a new ccMiner 1.7.6-r5 fork from Nanashi Meiyo-Meijin (source) based on tpruvot’s fork of ccMiner, but with even faster Lyra2REv2 performance. The ccMiner 1.5.80-git SP Nicehash fork from yesterday with improved Lyra2REv2 hashrate was apparently based on the code from the same author, but the Windows binary we have compiled from the ccMiner 1.7.6-r5 source seems to be slightly more optimized and thus is a bit faster. Below is a comparison between the two released on different Nvidia Maxwell GPUs to give you an idea on what is the difference in performance.
ccMiner 1.5.80-git SP Nicehash:
– Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 – 9.88 MHS
– Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 – 20.98 MHS
– Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti – 30.11 MHS
ccMiner 1.7.6-r5 Nanashi Meiyo-Meijin:
– Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 – 10.21 MHS
– Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 – 21.49 MHS
– Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti – 31.38 MHS
Apparently the optimizations for the Lyra2REv2 performance were made for mining Monacoin (MONA), buy you can mine any other altcoin that uses the same algorithm. So here comes the 32-bit Windows binary of the ccMiner 1.7.6-r5 fork from Nanashi Meiyo-Meijin is compiled with VS2013 and CUDA 7.5 with a wider range of Nvidia GPUs supported – from Compute 2.0 all the way up to Compute 5.2 (we have only tested it with Maxwell GPUs though). There is no point in publishing a 64-bit binary as our tests have shown that it provides lower performance when compared to the 32-bit version that is available here. You can follow the development of this fork on the official dev thread, though it is in Japanese and you may need to use an online translation service.
