ccminer-maxwell-1-5-git-sp-mod

We have compiled a windows binary from the latest code of the ccMiner 1.5-git SP-MOD fork of the Nvidia miner optimized for Maxwell GPUs by SP (source). This miner includes the latest features available from tpruvot’s fork of ccMiner such as extra nonce support, however the main difference is that it is a version designed to provide the maximum performance on Maxwell-based Nvidia GPUs using Compute 5.0 (GTX 750, GTX 750 Ti) and Compute 5.2 (GTX 970 and GTX 980). If you are using an older Nvidia-based video card for mining crypto currencies you might want to stick with the tpruvot’s ccMiner fork that works with cards supporting Compute 3.0 or newer. The optimizations by SP do provide some extra hashrate and our test has shown a bit higher performance as compared to the latest code from tpruvot, testing with GTX 980 at stock frequency on X11 algorithm we are getting about 7900 KHS or slightly faster with the SP fork. The windows binary was compiled from the latest source with VS2013 and uses CUDA 6.5,s o make sure you have the latest video drivers installed.

ccminer-1-5-git-tpruvot

We have compiled a windows binary from the latest (source) of ccMiner 1.5-git fork by tpruvot as he has added support for the Extra Nonce feature used by services such as NiceHash or WestHash to maximize the mining performance. So if you are currently leasing your Nvidia GPU mining hashrate at NiceHash or WestHash you might want to try out the latest code of this ccMiner fork. Do note that there is still no official release of 1.5 by tpruvot and this windows binary is compiled from the latest source available on GitHub. There are also some increases in performance as compared to the previous release, so you should notice a slightly better hashrate in some algorithms. The windows binary available for download below is compiled for Compute 3.0, 3.5, 5.0 and 5.2 Nvidia GPUs using VS2013 and CUDA 6.5, so make sure you have updated your drivers if you still don’t have ones installed with CUDA 6.5 support.

nicehash-neoscrypt-profitability

The Nicehash service for leasing and renting hashrate has added support for the Neoscrypt algorithm as well following the recent addition to Mining Rig Rentals. This comes to show that the user interest in GPU mining is far from gone and new algorithms such as Neoscrypot by crypto currencies such as FTC are attracting a lot of attention. The service operators at Nicehash do recommend however to use the latest sgminer 5.0 development version with support for Neoscrypt for selling your hashrate to the service as the official cgminer 3.7.8 with Neoscrypt support has the extranonce bug. Looking at the profitability of the available algorithms at the Nicehash service you can see that Neoscrypt is taking the top spot for the best paying algorithm from time to time already.
