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.

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.


The successor of the NiceHash Control tool is now here and it is called Miner Control. The software from the same author, StuffOfInterest on Bitcointalk, is built on top of the basic profit switching algorithm use in NiceHash Control, but now comes with more pools supported. With Miner Control you are now able to switch between the most profitable pool among the following: NiceHash, WestHash, TradeMyBit and YAAMP. There is also a manual configurations support for last resort backup pool also available, something that we have implemented in the form of a workaround for our mining packages that we have released for AMD and Nvidia that were using the NiceHash Control tool some time ago. We are soon going to be updating these packages to take advantage of the new features and functionality that the Miner Control offers, but meanwhile you can check out the new application and read about all of the new features and options it offers and also do your own configurations pairing it with a miner of your choice.
