The latest NBMiner 27.7 update comes with improvements for Handshake (HNS) and HNS + ETH Dual mining on Nvidia GPUs, bringing a bit better performance as well as some fixes like for the NVML initialization failure on certain cases and for ETH mining on NiceHash. With the latest performance improvement NBMiner 27.7 is again taking a lead for Handshake mining performance from the latest GMiner. With the latest performance improvements a mining rig with 6x 1080 Ti’s gets closer to what Blackminer’s FPGAs with HNS support, though GPUs are still a bit slower and with a bit higher power usage. Nevertheless mining HNS now may still be worth it with the expected availability of the first Handshake ASIC miner sometime in June.

We remind you that the NBMiner is a closed source GPU miner for Nvidia CUDA and now AMD as well that is available for both Windows and Linux operating systems and it has the following developer fee built-in: tensority_ethash 3%, tensority (Pascal) 2%, tensority (Turing) 3%, ethash 0.65%, cuckaroo & cuckatoo & cuckaroo_swap 2%, progpow_sero 2%, sipc 2%, bfc 3%, hns 2%, hns_ethash 3%.

The latest NBMiner 26.1 update comes with a bit of improvement in the performance for mining CKB on Nvidia GPUs as well as support for Dual Mining ETH + CKB on AMD GPUs (dual mining was already available for Nvidia users). This update is just in time for the official launch for the Nervos CKB mainnet launch planned for tomorrow that uses the Eaglesong mining algorithm. Aside from NBMiner, you can also use GMiner and SRBMiner-MULTI for the Eaglesong algorithm, though with the latest update NBMiner should be slightly faster on Nvidia than GMiner.

The latest Bminer 15.5.0 comes with another interesting dual-mining feature that has attracted our attention, namely dual-mining Ethereum (ETH) and VeriBlock (VBK), meaning that you can mine any Ethash coin together with the vBlake2 algorithm used by VBK. The new version also comes with improved performance of the Cuckatoo31 algorithm and added parameter -version to output the current miner version and exit.

What we were most interested in the new version was the support for VBK (no standalone support for the algorithm yet), so only dual mining Ethash and VBK for now. We wanted to see what performance we can expect in this dual mode from VBK as we already know what to expect regarding Ethash hashrate. Unfortunately it seems that VBK support really does need some more work as the miner is somewhat unstable when dual mining and crashes from time to time and results are also erratic. With OhGodAnETHlargementPill running we were not getting any accepted shares for VBK, only stales, and with the Pill software not running it seems that VBlake2 shares are properly submitted. It is hard to understand however what is the exact hashrate for each of the two algorithms when dual mining, so more work is required on that new feature apparently.

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.
