You Should Use ccMiner Alexis-1.0 for Better X11-Gost Hashrate

16 Feb

The recent addition of the X11-Gost algorithm on NiceHash that is being used by SIBCoin (SIB) has increased the user interest in the coin and the algorithm as expected. NiceHash has recommended the use of the latest release of ccMiner by tpruvot for X11-Gost support on their servers, but it seems that this is not the fastest solution available to Nvidia miners as was pointed out to us. While ccminer v1.8.4 from tpruvot does about 8 MHs on a stock GTX 1070 GPU, but you can get faster speeds on the same hardware by using the latest ccMiner fork from alexis 78 (source). We have compiled a 64-bit Windows binary with Compute 5.x support and CUDA 7.5 for Nvidia Maxwell GPUs from the latest source for mining X11-Gost (SIBCoin) and with it you can get about 10-11 MHs on a stock GTX 1070 GPU.

Do note that on mining rigs with multiple GPUs you might need to increase the amount of virtual memory (SWAP file) if you have less system memory in order to be able to run the miner with the default high intensity. On a 6x GTX 1070 GPUs mining rig with 8GB RAM we’ve had to increase the virtual memory to 24GB in order to be able to run the miner properly at the default intensity of 22 set for the X11-Gost algorithm in the miner, otherwise the miner just crashes… 8GB RAM and 20GB SWAP file was not enough apparently.

ccminer is only for Nvidia, you can use the latest sgminer fork from Nicehash on AMD.

32-bit binary will give you better results…

Does anybody know which hashrate a GTX 750ti can reach?
Thank you!

Any chance for 32bit with cuda 7.5?

Is there a source code for this?

The alexis 78 version doesn’t work on my 960 on Windows 10…does it need compiled for a lower CUDA version?

Hello i have 8 gtx 1070 with 4gb of ram, virtual memory 24000 my miner is crash, not overcloking…. ANY HELP ???

Most algos won’t run on my Win 10 GTX 1070’s either… Same errors as posted earlier:

GPU0:invalid argument

22.5 MH/S on GTX 1080 Ti, windows 7 with this Alexis ccminer vs 15.6 MH/S on standart one.

GTX980, hash rate 44 MH/s

GT980 TI or just 980?
What ar you mining?

Is there any limit for max number of GPUs? I’m trying to run miner with 12 GPUs (all are 1060), but only 1-8 GPUs are working, others are idle.
The “-n” commands list all of 12 GPUs.
I have tried to run two instance of miners with parameters of first miner “-d 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7” and the second one with “-d 8,9,10,11”. The second miner told me, device 11 is not exist. If I remove “11”, the GPU with ID “10” don’t do anything. Only two GPU is working and the first instance of miner with the 8 GPU devices.

However sometimes all of the GPUs are working, not sure why.

Can you help me, please?

Why I keep receiving “Invalid Argument” message with this miner? Cheers

Guys, same problem with error – GPU#0: invalid argument. Any ideas ? I have 1070Ti, Windows 10 x64 Home, Nvidia drivers 390.77.
