The latest GMiner 1.36 miner comes with significantly decreased CPU usage for cuckoo cycle algorithms for Nvidia GPUs (up to 40%), so it should handle better on mining rigs with lower-end CPUs. The new version also has added adaptive CPU usage adjustment for cuckoo cycle algorithms (increase hashrate on weak CPUs), do note that the miner need a few minutes to adapt CPU usage on a weak CPU. There is also an added option to control the GPU intensity (--intensity, 1-100) with the default intensity being 100, but lowering it may be useful for some mining rigs that have stability problems with the highest intensity.

The GMiner miner requires an Nvidia GPU with CUDA compute capability 5.0 or later as well as CUDA 9.0 driver support, some algorithms are already supported on AMD GPUs as well (Cuckaroo29, Cuckoo29, Cuckaroo29s and Beam’s Equihash 150,5). Do note that GMiner is a closed source miner for Nvidia and AMD GPUs with binaries available for both Windows and Linux, also there is a 2% developer fee built-in the software.

The newest GMiner 1.35 miner comes with improved performance for Grin29 and Swap on Nvidia cards, additional support for mining on AMD video cards for Grin29, Swap and Aeternity (adding to the already available support for BEAM), improved pool side hashrate for Swap and various bug fixes. The performance for GRIN’s Cuckaroo29 and SWAP’s Cuckaroo29s algorithm is currently probably the fastest compared to other available miners (tested on Windows 10 with GTX 1080 Ti). The additional algorithms getting AMD GPU support is nice, though not that useful as these mining rigs are not performing that good with the specific algorithms and the expected profit is not attractive at all at this point. Still it is good to have more alternatives for miners for different algorithms, so it will be good to see GMiner getting support for additional algorithms on AMD as well.

The GMiner Nvidia CUDA miner requires an Nvidia GPU with CUDA compute capability 5.0 or later as well as CUDA 9.0 driver support. Do note that GMiner is a closed source miner for Nvidia GPUs with binaries available for both Windows and Linux, also there is a 2% developer fee built-in the software.

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.
