cpuminer-multi-latest

We have not released binary updates of the cpuminer-multi CPU miner fork from tpruvot with multiple algorithms support (source), so here is an up to date version compiled for Windows. This is the most functional fork of cpuminer that comes with support for the largest number of algorithms and a lot of optimizations for them to get the most performance out of your CPU. Do note however that some dedicated forks of cpuminer for a specific algorithm may still provide better performance, but if you want flexible solution with many algorithms supported then cpuminer-multi is the choice. We have compiled an up to date Windows binary from the latest source that comes with some fixes and improvements for various algorithms as well as support for some new algorithms such as bastion, scrypt-jane, sib and yescrypt. If you have some spare CPU power that you want to use for mining then this is the miner you’ll need, do note that we have compiled our Windows binary with Visual Studio 2013 and for 64-bit Windows.

ccminer-1-7-tpruvot-benchmark

The latest release of the ccMiner 1.7 fork by tpruvot (source) has added some new interesting functionality among which is the ability to run a benchmark on all of the supported crypto algorithms by the software. There is no more need to go through all of the algorithms one by one and record the returned results, all you have to do is run ccminer.exe --benchmark and the miner will go through all of the algorithms automatically and print out the hashrate you get with your particular Nvidia GPU. It can work with single and multiple GPUs in the system, but if you have more than one and you do not specify which one you want tested it will benchmark all of them and display individual hashrate. Thanks to the ease of use of this feature and the fact that it needs just about 5 minutes to run we might soon start seeing crypto hashrate benchmarks included in Nvidia GPU reviews on sites that do hardware reviews, but generally do not bother to test crypto mining performance.

Since the output in the console when you run ccMiner in benchmark mode is quite big, you might want to automate the run and have the results written to a text file by default that you can later open and view more easily than having to scroll in a console window. To do so and have the results written to benchmark.txt file just run the following command line: ccminer.exe --benchmark > benchmark.txt

Here is a sample benchmark run on a GTX 980 Ti GPU:

*** ccminer 1.7 for nVidia GPUs by tpruvot@github ***

ccminer-1-7-tpruvot-benchmark

A few days ago we have posted a windows binary compiled from the latest source of ccMiner 1.7-git from tpruvot and now the official 1.7 release is available with a windows binary compiled by the author of the miner. The final version does come with some additional fixes and improvements as compared to the 1.7-git release from a few days ago, so if you are using the older windows binary you might want to update now. The ccMiner 1.7-tpruvot fork brings support for old Compute 2.0 (SM 2.1) devices for many of the crypto algorithms allowing users with older Nvidia GPUs to use them to mine. It also brings some performance improvements for newer Compute 5.0+ GPUs and adds new features such as automatic benchmark mode for all supported algorithms and some other interesting new features. The ccMiner 1.7-tpruvot fork supports Nvidia-based GPUs with Compute 2.0 or newer capabilities, so make sure that you are not trying to run the miner on too old hardware. The official x86 Windows binary release is for older SM 2.1+ devices while the x64-bit one is intended for newer SM 3.5+ devices.
