The Latest Ethminer 0.9.41-genoil-1.0.4b3 for Windows

24 Feb


Ethminer 0.9.41-genoil-1.0.4b3 (source) is the latest release of Genoil’s CUDA miner forked from the official ethminer that is designed to work on Nvidia CUDA GPUs, but will also work on AMD OpenCL GPUs as well. The latest version adds some useful features for both AMD and Nvidia miners, though there is not much of a difference in terms of performance compared to older releases, so do not expect to see faster hashrate. In fact the hashrate on AMD GPUs has been decreasing over time due to the increasing size od the DAG files used by the miner for mining Ethereum’s Ether (ETH) coins.

The latest release contains more advanced benchmark options that allow you to check how performance changed or will change in time, there is an option to set a custom DAG storage folder and even support for stratum mining without a proxy, although currently limited to support only for Coinotron with more pools to come. We ran a quick test to check how the hashrate changed over time between block 1 and block 1 million of Ethereum on an AMD Radeon R9 280X GPU and on Nvidia Geforce GTX 970 GPU. As you can see from the results below the performance has dropped quite a bit on AMD, but has not changed on Nvidia, do note however that Nvidia-based video cards are slower in terms of mining performance for Ethereum… at least for the moment.

GeForce GTX 970:
Block 1 – 17.31 MHS
Block 1M – 17.31 MHS

Radeon R9 280X:
Block 1 – 25.95 MHS
Block 1M – 21.49 MHS

How are you getting 17MHS out of your 970? I’m only getting ~7MHS with mine. Is it because I’m using Windows?

Do not use Windows 8/10 for Ethereum mining, go for Windows 7 or Linux for best performance.
For GTX 750 Ti GPUs you should go for Linux only to get best performance.

Ah, so windows 10 is my issue then. Thanks for tip!

So how much is 960

You can mine on win 10 , but you will have to use 347.52 win7 x64 nvidia drivers, also you will have to compile miner with cuda 6.5 and compute 5.2 support. You can read more on cudaminer forums , there is also succesfully compiled miners for old driver with compute 5.2 support , made them because i didnt wanted to install win7 just for mining. tested on 970+2×950 setup.

p.s. 960 and 970 works fine with old driver by default , 950 will require tinkering with driver infs , because at time driver was released , 950 wasnt out.

I’m getting 10.47 MH/s out of my nVidia GeForce 660 TI mining Ethereum on a Win 7 machine using ethminer-cuda-0.9.41. At current exchange rates, I’m earning about half of what an Antminer S7 earns mining Bitcoin now just with my old nVidia card mining Ethereum.

@Mo35 thanks for the advice! I’ll definitely have to look into that this weekend when I have time to tinker!

haha i mine with 20-21 Mh with my 970 its this miner fake?

It is possible to get higher performance, the above results are with default settings and no tweaking of the GPUs.

My GTX 960 can only do 10Mh/s on Windows 7. Will it run faster if I change the OS to Ubuntuļ¼Ÿ

Probably will not make much difference, but you can try if this will help a bit if you have not overclocked your video card:

Hello sir,

im using windows XP. is it suitable to run on it?

I have a card Asus HD 7850 2G and Windows 7
How many hashrate getting?

How you can sumulate any block of ethereum blockchain ?
It is very interesting.

Running Windows 10 (390’s) on one rig and Ubuntu 15.04 on two others. Windows and genoil don’t seem to like one another though claymore works perfect on W10. It’s all about the drivers. Ubuntu 15.04 Server (headless) seems to be the most stable option so far.

Hi, I’m running on Win10 with an R9 390 and getting 29/30MHs with the GPU core running 1115MHz. Should I expect better performance if I was to use Linux? or drop this card into a Win7 box that I have laying around, or is my card pretty much topped out? I’m also using Crimson drivers, I was reading somewhere about the Catalyst 15.12 drivers being better, but I’m not sure if that was in reference to using Genoil…
