A bit late with this one, but better late than never. We have compiled a 64-bit Windows binary of the new cpuminer-multi fork by ocminer (source) with support for the HMQ1725 algorithm used by Espers (ESP). We have made small source changes in order to use hmq1725 as algorithm name instead of quark in the original source and compiled generic binaries for AMD and Intel CPUs that seem to provide a bit higher hashrate than the Windows binary provided by ocminer. We have tried compiling with optimizations for specific CPU architectures, but since it did not produce noticeable performance increase we are sticking to the generic ones for AMD K8 or newer as well as Intel Core 2 or newer processors. Running some tests on an Intel 5820K CPU has resulted in about 135 KHS with ocminer’s binary and our Windows binaries are giving us about 150 KHS, so they should be around 10% faster, but you are welcome to try and report your results.
