ccminer-new-x11-performance-update-780-ti

The ccMiner software miner for Nvidia GPUs has received another update of the source code with improved performance for X11 algorithm mining, so you should be getting higher hashrate when mining crypto currencies such as DarkCoin. We have compiled a binary for Windows that you can find below and try on your Nvidia GPU. The performance that the current optimized code for X11 offers on our test GeForce GTX 780 Ti GPU is almost 4.7 MHS (non overclocked) and with the previous 1.0 release of ccminer we were getting hashrate of about 2.8 MHS when mining DarkCoin. On a GTX 750 Ti you are probably going to get pretty much the same performance that a Radeon R9 280X currently has for X11 mining or about 2 MHS or slightly more. So now Nvidia clearly has the advantage in X11 mining in terms of performance over AMD.

Do note that the windows binary you can download below is compiled for Compute 3.0, 3.5 and 5.0 cards (32-bit version only), so it will not work on older cards. It is also compiled with Visual Studio 2012, so if you do not already have Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 you will have to download and install it, otherwise you may be getting error for a missing DLL library.

cgminer-gridseed-updated-release-g-blade

There were some requests from readers to provide a compiled binary for windows of the latest cgminer 3.7.2 with Gridseed support based on the jmordica fork, so we have compiled it. The most notable difference from the previous compiled version of cgminer we have posted with support for the G-Blades (also present here) is the addition of support for NiceHash service where you can now also use your Gridseed ASICs to sell your hashrate. The supported frequencies range from 700 to 1400 with finer grain selection available, for the complete list of supported frequencies you can check the readme file. Below you can download the windows binary, you can change options by editing the config file.

ccminer-1-0-x11-support

The ccMiner software miner for Nvidia GPUs has received another update of the source code this time adding support for the X11 algorithm for GPU mining crypto currencies such as DarkCoin. We have compiled a binary for Windows that you can find below and try on your Nvidia GPU. It seems that the performance that the current code for X11 offers on Nvidia hardware is pretty similar to what you can get on AMD. On a GeForce GTX 780 Ti we are getting hashrate of about 2.8 MHS when mining DarkCoin.

Do note that the windows binary you can download below is compiled for Computer 3.0, 3.5 and 5.0 cards (32-bit version only), so it will not work on older cards. It is also compiled with Visual Studio 2012, so if you do not already have Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 you will have to download and install it.
