We have compiled a new windows binary for the ccMiner 1.6-git fork by tpruvot (source) that now has support for ZiftrCOIN (ZRC) GPU mining with support for Compute 3.0 or later Nvidia-based video. Our windows binary is compiled with VS2013 and CUDA 6.5 and supports Compute 3.0, 3.5, 5.0 and 5.2 GPUs, you can download and try it below, there is an example BAT file setup for testing hashrate at the Suprnova ZR5 pool. Depending on the GPU you are using you may try to increase the intensity of the ccMiner to get some extra performance, try with 25-26 instead of the default 20. We are getting up to about 3000 KHS on GeForce GTX 980. The GPU mining availability for ZiftrCOIN is going to make CPU mining the coin pointless, especially since it is now possible for both AMD and Nvidia GPUs, so you might want to switch to something else if you have idle CPU power for mining crypto currencies.

The WhirlpoolX algorithm is now supported in both the latest updates of the ccMiner forks from SP (source) and Tpruvot (source). So we have compiled windows binaries from the latest source for both miners and decided to test the performance we are getting mining the WhirlpoolX altcoin Vanillacoin (VNL). Do note that the sp-mod fork of ccMiner is optimized and supports the newer Computer 5.0 and 5.2 Nvidia Maxwell GPUs where the performance is maxed out while the tpruvot fork supports Compute 3.0 or newer video cards. We have tested the performance we are getting on GeForce GTX 980 GPU with the two miners, the SP version as expected gives out higher performance on a Maxwell card as expected with about 233 MHS while the tpruvot fork is not that much slower with about 222 MHS mining WhirlpoolX. So if you are mining WhirlpoolX on Nvidia-based video cards or leasing your hashrate you might want to update your miner to the appropriate version depending on your GPUs.

Recently we have been compiling and releasing windows binaries of the ccMiner fork by SP that is optimized for newer Nvidia GPUs based on the Maxwell architecture, but tpruvot has been active lately and we have decided to compile and release a windows binary from his latest source. The windows binary we have compiled for ccMiner 1.6-git by tpruvot (source) is with support for Compute 3.0 or later Nvidia-based video cards, unlike the SP releases that are Compute 5.0 and 5.2. This means that if you are using older video cards you should go for the tpruvot release as the SP fork will not function on these, newer Maxwell GPUs however will get much better performance with the SP fork. Below you can find a quick comparison we did with the latest ccMiner 1.5-41 fork from SP and ccMiner 1.6-git fork by tpruvot using a GeForce GTX 980 GPU running at stock frequencies.

ccMiner 1.5-41 SP:
X11 – 9098 KHS
X13 – 7230 KHS
X15 – 6226 KHS

ccMiner 1.6-git tpruvot:
X11 – 8239 KHS
X13 – 6669 KHS
X15 – 5830 KHS
