The latest Bminer 15.1.0 comes with improved performance and reduced reject rate for the Cuckaroo29 and Cuckatoo31 algorithms used by GRIN as well as experimental support Cuckaroo29 on AMD cards (ROCM only). The update also improves compatibility on Windows and fixes the regression on UI dashboard. Do note that since Bminer runs on Nvidia GPUs by default you will need to specify device IDs with amd: to run on AMD cards, for example the command line option -devices amd:0 will run the miner on the first AMD GPU it finds in the system. DO note that AMD support is still experimental and before this version that brings Cuckaroo29 on AMD GPUs, Bminer already supported BEAM mining on AMD as well (Equihash 150,5).

We remind you that that Bminer is a closed source Nvidia GPU miner available for Linux and Windows in the form of pre-compiled binaries and that there is a 2% development fee for Grin, Beam, Bytom (BTM), Equihash and Zhash coins, 0.65% for Ethash and 1.3% for dual mining Ethash and Blake.

The latest Bminer 15.0 has finally fixed support for Cuckatoo31 on the 11GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GPUs under Windows and now also introduces support for 8GB video cards for Cuckatoo31, but not yet under Windows 10 (Windows 7 should work). The new version also apparently improves stability of the Cuckatoo31 solver, though our short experience with 1080 Ti under Windows 10 shows that more is desired to make the miner more stable and reliable when using the Cuckatoo31 algorithm under Win 10. Still feel free to give it a try, NiceHash is supported and currently Bminer 15.0 offers the best performance for the C31 algo used by Grin, though Windows 10 may still not be the best choice for optimal performance and stability for that particular algorithm.

The latest update of the AMD GPU miner lolMiner 0.7 alpha5 brings support for BEAM (Equihash 150,5 algorithm) on NiceHash giving access to AMD miners to sell their hashrate on the platform. In the last day the most profitable hashrate selling was for BEAM on NiceHash, but unfortunately not for AMD… it was for Nvidia miners with higher-end GPUs. Nevertheless, AMD miners now have access to sell their Equihash 150,5 hashrate as well on NiceHash with the lolMiner 0.7 alpha5, just make sure you set TLS to off for use with NiceHash (--tls 0 in cmd or "TLS" : 0 in config file to turn if off for BEAM). We remind you that lolMiner is a closed source AMD GPU miner available for Windows and Linux as pre-compiled binaries only and that there is a developer fee for using the software.
