ccminer-1-7-6-r5-lyra2rev2

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.

ccminer-1-5-80-sp-nicehash-lyra2rev2

Nicehash has forked SP’s ccMiner 1.5.80 GPU miner for Nvidia MAxwell GPUs (source) and has added significantly improved support for the Lyra2REv2 algorithm that can apparently provide up to 100% increase in terms of performance. SO if you are mining a crypto currency that uses the Lyra2REv2 algorithm or are selling your hashrate on Nicehash, then you might want to go for the new miner. We have compiled a 32-bit Windows binary, using VS2013 with CUDA 7.5 that you can download and try. Do note that it is compiled only for Nvidia Maxwell GPUs supporting Compute 5.0 and Compute 5.2 such as GTX 750, 750 Ti, GTX 950 GTX 960, GTX 970, GTX 980, GTX 980 Ti and GTX Titan X.

ccminer-1-8-dev-tpruvot-x11evo

Here comes another interesting update of the ccMiner fork by tpruvot with a new Windows binary we have compiled from the latest ccMiner 1.8-dev (source) that comes with support for the new X11 Evo algorithm. The Windows binary is built from the Linux branch and is a 32-bit one compiled with CUDA 6.5 and with support for Compute 2.0 or newer Nvidia GPUs. Our quick test has shown pretty good performance from the ccMiner with X11 Evo support as compared to the sgminer fork for the X11 Evo algorithm supplied by the Revolvercoin (XRE) team, so Nvidia miners will have a serious advantage at the moment. While you can get about 2-3 MHS on a 280X 290X using the sgminer fork, with this release of ccMiner you can expect to see over 7 MHS on GTX 970 or over 10 MHS on a GTX 980 Ti, so significantly faster hashrate on Nvidia GPUs for the moment. So Nvidia miners might be interested in checking out the new Revolvercoin (XRE) altcoin as it is currently the only one that uses the X11 Evo algorithm and if you have some issue with X11evo support please report it…
