ccminer-1.2-keccak-windows

The ccMiner fork from djm34 got updated to add support for the Keccak algorithm used by crypto coins such as MaxCoin along with some performance improvement for the Whirlpool algorithms. the Keccak algorithm is already supported by CudaMiner, but since it hasn’t been updated for quite a while and ccMiner has become the GPU miner of preference for Nvidia miners you can now mine coins using this algo with it as well. In terms of performance improvement for the whirlpool algorithm, with the new version we are getting 4550 KHS on a GeForce GTX 750 Ti, up from about 4400 KHS that we got with the previous update. On a GeForce GTX 780 Ti the hashrate is up from about 11500 KHS to 13000 KHS using the new code.

The windows binary available here is compiled for Compute 3.0, 3.5 and newer cards (32-bit version only) in a single binary, 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. The binary is compiled with Visual Studio 2010 and is backwards compatible with Windows XP as well if you are using it on your mining rig.

miningrigrentals-new-algorithms

The service offering users to sell their hashrate or rent mining rigs MiningRigRentals has added support for some new algorithms such as the new X15, as well as for Groestl, Nist5 and Keccak. Of course the service offers the quite popular at the moment X11 and X13 mining rigs as well as Scrypt, Scrypt-N and Sha-256, Blake-256 though these can also be found on other alternative services. If you are mining for coins or are willing to sell your hashrate in the service make sure that you are using the latest miners that offer the highest possible performance that were released in the last few days. Currently there are still not many rigs available for renting for the new algorithms, but since the interest in these is increasing we are probably soon going to see more rigs available for rent.

Below you can find a list of the more common crypto algorithms with some example coins that use them along with a link to windows binary for a miner for the respective algorithm. This way you can quickly get to the GPU miner for AMD or Nvidia GPUs that you would need to use for a specific crypto algorithms, especially if you have not yet mined a coin based on that algorithm. There are of course some more coins that use other specific algorithms and may not be mineable with the GPU miners listed below.
