AMD GPU owners mining for Heavycoin (HVC) can finally be happy with the latest performance optimization of the cgminer with HVC support as it takes back the lead in terms of performance from the Nvidia GPU miners. The new update adds almost 4 more MHS of performance on a Radeon R9 280x GPU with us getting about 12.8 MHS with the previous update and now with the new one we are up to about 16.2 MHS with the same hardware and settings. The new updated version that you can download from the link below for windows (source) includes the performance update and we recommend you to update now in order to benefit from the performance boost. And no, this is not a joke, but actual performance increase for free.


We have updated our windows builds of the cgminer 3.7.2 and cpuminer for Gridseed 5-chip GC3355 ASICs and you can download them below. Both versions include the latest official releases (cgminer source and cpuminer source) and in the source folder you can find our modified files for adding additional frequencies for overclocking if you want to compile from the source code yourself.

Both the cgminer 3.7.2 and cpuminer with Gridseed 5-chip GC3355 ASIC support the following frequencies that you can set to find what works best for overclocking the devices you have:

250, 400, 450, 500, 550, 600, 650, 700, 706, 713, 719, 725, 731, 738, 744, 750, 756, 763, 769, 775, 781, 788, 794, 800, 813, 825, 838, 850, 863, 875, 888, 900, 913, 925, 938, 950, 963, 975, 988, 1000, 1013, 1025, 1038, 1050, 1063, 1075, 1088, 1100, 1113, 1125, 1138, 1150, 1163, 1175, 1188, 1200, 1213, 1225, 1238, 1250, 1263, 1275, 1288, 1300, 1313, 1325, 1338, 1350, 1363, 1375, 1388, 1400.

Another update to the cgminer 3.7.3 for Heavycoin (HVC) GPU mining on AMD GPUs. The latest OpenCL kernel update brings some extra Megahashes out of the hardware over the previously available release of the miner, even though mining on Nvidia seems to still be ahead in term of performance with the latest ccMiner 0.5. With the new updated version that you can download from the link below for windows (Linux source here). With the new update you can expect to get something like up to 50% more performance, or this is what we are seeing after running our tests on a Radeon R9 280x. We got up to 12.8 MHS on that particular card after getting up to about 8.8 MHS with the previous release. Not bad and if you are mining HVC, then you should most definitely update your miner in order to be able to enjoy the extra performance gain with the new version.
