If you have GPU mining rigs using more recent Nvidia GPUs and are interested in mining NeoScrypt based crypto coins, then you might want to check out the new hsrminer for Neoscrypt. This is a new closed source miner being developed by palgin & alexkap that is currently available as a Windows-only binary with 1% developer fee built-in. Currently the hsminer software is under development with a version available for Neoscrypt as well as for HSR mining support with other crypto algorithms coming later on as well. The currently available hsrminer version for Neoscrypt does offer a good improvement in terms of performance as compared to the previously available fastest ccMiner releases, so definitely worth checking it out.

Before trying this miner software just make sure that your Nvidia GPU is with Compute Capability 5.0 supported as minimum (though currently only Pascal GPUs seem to work) as well that are using a driver version 388.3x or later. Also it is advised to make sure that the amount of virtual memory you have set under Windows is pretty high as the miner does require a lot of memory, especially for more powerful GPUs. If using Windows 10 you might want to be sure that you have all the latest updates installed including the Creators Update as otherwise you might have issues with the miner.

sgminer-5-1-1-latest-whirlpoolx

We have compiled a new Windows binary from of sgminer version 5.1.1 from the latestsource as it includes some fixes and optimizations since our last binary release. The latest sgminer 5.1.1 should also have better performing WhirlpoolX implementation thanks to Wolf0’s kernel getting integrated. The idea of the official sgminer is that it combines almost all of the available algorithms in a single miner package and that is what makes it useful for GPU miners along with a functionality that should allow you to easily switch between them. Do not that the performance of all of the various kernels included in the official sgminer may not be as optimized as in some dedicated releases for a specific crypto algorithm out there.

sgminer-5-1-1-lyra2re

Earlier this month when sgminer has been updated to version 5.1.1 (source) it has turned out that there are some issues with the newly added Lyra2RE support. This issue has been addressed and now the latest sgminer 5.1.1 should have no more trouble mining Lyra2RE on compatible OpenCL GPUs, so you might want to give it a try, though it might not be the highest performing Lyra2RE miner out there. The idea of the official sgminer is that it combines almost all of the available algorithms in a single miner package and that is what makes it useful for GPU miners along with a functionality that should allow you to easily switch between them.
