ccminer-1-7-6-r6-lyra2re

Here comes an updated ccMiner 1.7.6-r6 Widows binary of the Nanashi Meiyo-Meijin fork (source) with optimized Lyra2REv2 performance. The latest r6 update might bring a slight performance increase in Lyra2REv2, however it significantly increases the performance of the Lyra2RE algorithm based on the few tests we ran, results of which you can find below comparing the r5 and r6 released on different Maxwell GPUs and the new Pascal GTX 1080.

ccMiner 1.7.6-r5 Nanashi Meiyo-Meijin:

Nvidia GTX 970
– Lyra2RE 1.65 MHS
– Lyra2REv2 21.49 MHS

Nvidia GTX 980 Ti
– Lyra2RE 2.43 MHS
– Lyra2REv2 31.38 MHS

Nvidia GTX 1080
– Lyra2RE 2.61 MHS
– Lyra2REv2 47.68 MHS

ccMiner 1.7.6-r6 Nanashi Meiyo-Meijin:

Nvidia GTX 970
– Lyra2RE 2.83 MHS
– Lyra2REv2 21.55 MHS

Nvidia GTX 980 Ti
– Lyra2RE 4.48 MHS
– Lyra2REv2 32.18 MHS

Nvidia GTX 1080
– Lyra2RE 6.54 MHS
– Lyra2REv2 48.31 MHS

You can download a 32-bit Windows binary of the ccMiner 1.7.6-r6 fork from Nanashi Meiyo-Meijin compiled with VS2013 and CUDA 8.0 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 and Pascal GPUs though). 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-1-7-6-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.
