ccminer-1-6-2-git-tpruvot

We have compiled an up to date Windows binary from the latest ccMiner 1.6.2-git by tpruvot (source). The ccMiner fork from tpruvot is with support for Compute 3.0 or later Nvidia-based video cards all the way up to the latest Compute 5.2 GPUs from Nvidia. The latest version includes some fixes and most notably the addition of Scrypt, Scrypt-N and Scrypt-Jane algorithms that are ported from CudaMiner that has already been outdated and not supported for a while. Not that it is much profitable to mine coins using these algorithms at the moment, especially Scrypt ones on the GPU, but still now you have support for them in ccMiner available. Since our last binary release there was also the addition of Double Skein Algo (Skein 2) that is being used by crypto coins such as Woodcoin. Our windows binary is compiled with VS2013 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.

ccminer-1-6-git-zr5-tpruvot

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.

ccminer-sp-whirlpoolx

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.
