miner-conrol-tool-updated

Time for an update to our Miner Control based package for GTX 750 Ti GPUs. We’ve included an up to date ccMiner fork 1.5.42-git windows binary from SP (compiled for Maxwell cards with Compute 5.0 and 5.2 only). The GTX 750 Ti package is configured to work with NiceHash, WestHash and Yaamp pools, supporting the more profitable X11, X13, X14, X15, Keccack, Lyra2RE and Quark algorithms. We have also added the WhirlpoolX algorithm as well as Qubit, though it still seems that mining Quark/Qubit is still the most profitable on Nvidia GPUs most of the time as compared to other popular algorithms.

You can download the package below with settings already set for non-overclocked GTX 750 Ti, if you are going to be using it on multiple card mining rigs you need to multiply the hashrate for the algorithms supported. The package will also function just fine on GTX 960, GTX 970 and GTX 980 cards where you would need to set the power usage and hashrate numbers for your respective hardware to get the correct calculations working. To be ready to use it you just need to update the account settings for each pool to reflect your BTC payment address. Do note that the default configuration that we have left is set to mine from time to time for the author of the software (Miner Control) as a donation alternative, but you can change that setting should you wish to.

We have not updated our Miner Control based package for GTX 750 Ti GPUs for a while, so we have decided it is time to update it with the latest development – version 1.6.1 with an up to date ccMiner fork 1.5.31-git windows binary from SP (compiled for Maxwell cards with Compute 5.0 and 5.2 only). The GTX 750 Ti package is configured to work with NiceHash, WestHash and Yaamp pools, supporting the more profitable X11, X13, X14, X15, Keccack, Lyra2RE and Quark algorithms. We have temporary removed support for NIST5 as it appears to have some issues with the latest releases of ccMiner from SP. It seems that at the moment mining Quark is profitable on Nvidia GPUs as compared to other popular algorithms.

The GPU mining is still not dead, however the part where people would go on building new mining rigs with multiple video cards like they did with Radeon R9 280X, 290 and 290X is kind of in the past, or at least for the moment. The community working on AMD mining software has not been very active lately, not like the Nvidia where we have seen a lot of improvement in the miners in terms of hashrate and functionality over the past few months. It was started with the release of the GTX 750 Ti and then the new Maxwell-based GTX 970 and GTX 980 cards, but with the new more powerful cards from Nvidia you can just upgrade and use a single card for gaming and when you are not playing games to leave your system mining some crypto coins. Sure, using a single card will not make you rich from the miner coins, but you can keep the hobby mining part and still have a great gaming video card when you want to play games on it. You can go with two cards in SLI for even better gaming performance and more mining power and the idea is that over the course of time you could at least get back the money you paid for the cards back via the mining. So it all might not be a bad deal for people that are mining as a hobby and are also gamers, unlike GTX 750, the GTX 970 and GTX 980 are much more powerful and perfect choice for the more demanding games. We would recommend to go for non-reference design cards such as Gigabyte’s G1 GTX 970 and GTX 980 cards or other models with Windforce cooler for example, the non-reference high performance coolers do well with overclocking while still remaining pretty silent while operating under load.

If you have been following our updates lately you would have seen a lot of activity from developers on various forks of ccMiner going on and a lot of performance improvements for all Maxwell-based GPUs from Nvidia. There are also useful tools like the NiceHash Control Tool and the new and improved Miner Control that can make things easier for you if you do not want to always be on the lookout for new altcoins and still be able to maximize your profit mining at the right and profitable places. Having just a single or a few GPUs and mining as a hobby does not mean that things should be hard for you, you can go the easy way and sell your hashrate for the best price you can get at services sch as NiceHash or WestHash. Now may not be the best time to be GPU mining or mining with ASICs for that matter unless you already have made a big mining farm, but if the history repeats itself and Litecoin continues to go the same way that Bitcoin already went through mining with GPUs might yet again become a profitable thing to do in the near future, but we’ll have to wait and see…
