A new Windows binary compiled from the latest source code of ccMiner 1.5.43-git SP-MOD fork of the Nvidia GPU miner optimized for the latest Maxwell-based video cards by SP (source). The latest version comes with some fixes and some small performance improvements in multiple algorithms. The SP-MOD fork is designed for running on Nvidia Maxwell GPUs such as the already available GTX 750, 750 Ti as well as the newer GTX 960, GTX 970 and GTX 980. The windows binary release we have made available here is compiled with support for Compute 5.0 and Compute 5.2 GPUs or with other words only for Maxwell-based cards with CUDA 6.5 and VS2013.

Earlier this month when sgminer has been updated to version 5.1.1 (source) it has turned out that there are some issues with the newly added Lyra2RE support. This issue has been addressed and now the latest sgminer 5.1.1 should have no more trouble mining Lyra2RE on compatible OpenCL GPUs, so you might want to give it a try, though it might not be the highest performing Lyra2RE miner out there. The idea of the official sgminer is that it combines almost all of the available algorithms in a single miner package and that is what makes it useful for GPU miners along with a functionality that should allow you to easily switch between them.

The Miner Control tool, successor of NiceHash Control that has been developed by StuffOfInterest, is a useful piece of software for Windows users that want to make it simple and easy to mine the most profitable coin or rent their hashrate for the maximum profit without much effort other than setting thing up initially. The author of the original tool however hasn’t been working on it and adding new features for a while, not that the software is not useful enough as it is, but there are still some things that can be improved and added to make it even better. Thankfully the development has been picked up by Bombadil who has released his own improved version called KBomba-Mod (source) that adds some extra features and has further improved the tool. The best thing is that his modified version is fully compatible with the original config file, so you can just add the configuration that you are already using to the latest Miner Control v1.6.4 KBomba-Mod and it will work. Then you can start experimenting with his additions without having to waste any time to migrate to the new version.
