The ccMiner Nvidia CUDA miner has just been updated to version 1.2 with the source code getting support for the community contributed X13 and Diamond Groestl support. We have compiled a windows binary version from the source that includes the recently released optimizations called “Killer Groestl” that improves the performance of Groestl and all coins that use the algorithm supported by ccMiner. If you are using tsiv’s fork of ccMiner for mining X13 then it is recommended to download this new update as it will bring an extra performance improvement in x13 mining hashrate. Our tests show that on a GeForce GTX 750 Ti you can expect to get from about 1700 KHS to close to 2100 KHS mining X13 with the new ccMiner 1.2 as X13 does rely on Groestl as well.

Do note that the windows binary you can download below is compiled for Compute 3.0 and Compute 3.5-5.0 cards (32-bit version only), so it will not work on older cards. If you are unsure what version of Compute does your video card support check the included GPU Compute Capabilities List file. It is also compiled with Visual Studio 2012, so if you do not already have Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 you will have to download and install it, otherwise you may be getting error for a missing DLL library.

ccminer-1-0-x13-windows

There is now a new fork of ccMiner for Nvidia GPU miners available that adds support for X13 mining (this is not an official release). The fork of ccMiner by tsiv (source) adds X13 support with a performance that is just a bit lower than what Nvidia GPUs are offering in terms of X11 mining hashrate, though the hashrate could probably be further improved with some optimizations. We have compiled a windows binary of the new ccMiner fork with X13 support that you can download from the link below and try it yourself or you can compile it from source yourself. Our tests are showing that with it we are getting a hashrate of about 1700 KHS on an Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti video card and 3300 KHS on a GeForce GTX 780 Ti (non-overclocked cards).

Do note that the windows binary you can download below is compiled for Compute 3.0, Compute 3.5 and Compute 5.0 cards (32-bit version only), so it will not work on older cards. If you are unsure what version of Compute does your video card support check the included GPU Compute Capabilities List file. It is also compiled with Visual Studio 2012, so if you do not already have Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 you will have to download and install it, otherwise you may be getting error for a missing DLL library.
