ccminer-djm34-neoscrypt

After a crowdfunding effort to accumulate 2.5 BTC from users DJM34 has released a faster open source NeoScrypt kernel (source). Apart from the NeoScrypt the rest is based on the latest ccMiner form from SP version 1.5.78 that uses CUDA 7.5, so it is pretty much useful only if you are mining NeoScrypt-based altcoin. We have compiled a Windows 32-bit binary of the new ccminer djm34 neoscrypt fork with faster NeoScrypt using VS2013 and CUDA 7.5 as well as CUDA 6.5 (two versions available), compatible only with Nvidia Maxwell GPUs (Compute 5.0 and 5.2). Below we have compared the Neoscrypt performance using GTX 970 of this new release with the ccMiner 1.5.74 from SP with CUDA 6.5 and ccMiner 1.5.78 from sp with CUDA 7.5 to see what is the performance gain. Note that the initial ccMiner releases from SP with CUDA 7.5 had brought a significant drop in performance in the NeoScrypt algorithm, so it was best to use 1.5.74 with CUDA 6.5 for NeoScrypt.

NeoScrypt GTX 970 hashrate performance:
– ccMiner 1.5.74 CUDA 6.5 SPMOD fork: 525 KHS
– ccMiner 1.5.78 CUDA 7.5 SPMOD fork: 275 KHS
– ccMiner djm34 neoscrypt 6.5 from djm34: 632 KHS
– ccMiner djm34 neoscrypt 7.5 from djm34: 611 KHS

Note that the comparison with 1.5.78 is with an earlier release that did not include the latest NeoScrypt kernel from djm34, because it seems that SP has integrated it in the latest GitHub code after the code has been released by djm34.

Time for a new quick update in the form of a Windows binary compiled from the latest Git source code of ccMiner 1.5.52-git SP-MOD fork of the Nvidia GPU miner optimized for the latest Maxwell-based video cards by SP (source). This version includes some performance improvements in some of the supported algorithms such as Lyra2RE for GTX 970 and more Quark optimizations for improved hashrate, so as usual you might want to update for the best performance. As it seems that at the moment Lyra2RE and Quark are the most profitable algorithms to mine with GPU. 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.

Here comes a new update in the form of a Windows binary compiled from the latest Git source code of ccMiner 1.5.52-git SP-MOD fork of the Nvidia GPU miner optimized for the latest Maxwell-based video cards by SP (source). This version includes some fixes and minor performance improvements in some of the supported algorithms, so as usual you might want to update for the best performance. 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.
