The latest update of Bminer 11.4.0 has introduced experimental support for mining BEAM (Equihash 150/5) on AMD GPUs after the previous release brought support for the new algorithm on Nvidia GPUs. In order to enable AMD support you need to use an additional parameter in the command line of the miner, for example to run on the first AMD GPU: -devices amd:0, you need to list the deice IDs of the available AMD video cards in the mining rig that you want to use for mining. Do note that the BEAM Project does have an official AMD GPU miner as well as an Nvidia CUDA one, so you might want to try and compare the performance on AMD hardware between the two. Also note that BEAM mining support is still experimental on Bminer, so there could be some issues and problems at this point.

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 Bytom (BTM), Equihash and Zhash coins, 0.65% for Ethash and 1.3% for dual mining Ethash and Blake.

The latest Bminer 11.0.0 release has introduced Dual Mining mode for BTM/ETH similar to the support in NBMiner 12.0, although Bminer already had dual mining support for other algorithms the BTM/ETH pair is new. Have in mind that still not all of the BTM mining pools are supported by Bminer (like Antpool for example), so make sure you are on a compatible pool like f2pool in order to get the optimal performance with this miner in single or dual mining mode with Bytom mining.

The NiceHash service for leasing and renting crypto hashrate has announced the addition of a new crypto algorithm to their list of supported algos – the Zhash algorithm or Equihash with parameter set 144,5. This algorithm is currently used as a PoW algorithm with Bitcoin Gold (BTG), Anon (ANON) and BitcoinZ (BTCZ) and other projects. The Zhash algorithm works by increasing the hardware requirements of Equihash to make the development of an ASIC appliance less viable and to put back GPU mining in control for the projects using this algorithm. Aside from support for Zhash on the marketplace for hashrate, mining Zhash is also supported through the latest NiceHash Miner Legacy (1.9.0.8) as well as third party miners of course.

Another popular service for renting and leasing mining rigs Mining Rig Rentals has been offering Zhash (Equihash 144,5) for quite some time, though the market there is usually smaller compared to what NiceHash is capable of providing in terms of hashrate. Apart from Zhash this service also offers support for Equihash 96,5 as well as Equihash 192,7 and Equihash 210,9 so if you need any of these you can check the MRR service as well.
