All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
Initially Supcoin (SUP) was only mineable on CPU, though quickly an Nvidia GPUminer was released and now we also have an AMD GPU miner available all thanks to djm34. The initial release is only in the form of a binary for Windows, no source code available yet, and the miner may have some issues with the Pluck algorithm, but these will most likely be resolved in the next few days. We have tested the sgminer fork for AMD OpenCL GPUs on a Radeon R9 280X and the results were a little over 5 KH/s on a non-overclocked video card, so the performance is quite good compared to what the Nvidia miner provides at this moment. The binary has been updated, so now you should get even higher hashrate and less problems, so if you have downloaded the initial version please redownload the new one below.
The Supcoin (SUP) is a new altcoin that has just recently launched as a CPU only coin using a new algorithm called PLUCK, but it has quickly gotten a ccMiner fork from djm34 (source) adding support for GPU mining on Nvidia-based GPUs. The ccMiner fork with Pluck support for mining Supcoin (SUP) is available for download below, it is compiled for Compute 3.0 or newer Nvidia-based graphics cards, so it will not work on older. We have taken the ccMiner for a quick test to tee what hashrate you can expect to get from it and compare it to what the Pluck CPU miner from Wolf0 currently provides in terms of hashrate. There is still no AMD GPU miner available, but most likely we are going to soon seen one available considering that the algorithm was quickly ported on Nvidia it is apparently not very GPU resistant. The results cited below are for the hardware (CPU and GPU) running at their stock frequencies with no additional user overclock, do note that only the GTX 960 is an ASUS Strix card that is factory overclocked.
CPU miner hashrate:
AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition (6-core) – 0.78 KH/s
Intel Core i7-5820K Processor (6-core with HT) – 1.2 KH/s
Nvidia GPU miner hashrate:
Nvidia GTX 750 Ti – 1.89 KH/s (with throughput 3)
Nvidia GTX 960 – 3.38 KH/s (with throughput 3)
Nvidia GTX 980 – 5.25 KH/s (with throughput 3.5)
Supcoin (SUP) is a new alternative crypto currency that was just launched using a new algorithm called Pluck that is SHA256-based with more load on the memory and was supposed to initially be mined with CPU only, but we saw a very quick release of a ccMiner fork that added GPU mining support for Nvidia from djm34. The coin has a relatively small pre-mine that will mostly go for bounties and already has a few pools available for mining, though exchanges are not yet available. It is an interesting new project that you might want to check out and there is definitely an interest since you can already even rent hashrate from MiningRigRentals with the new Pluck algorithm. Betarigs has also apparently added the new algo, but there are no mining rigs available to rent there yet. So it is a project that you might want to check out as it might turn out to be an interesting alternative crypto coin.
