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.

The newest NBMiner 21.4 update comes with further improvement in the performance for Grin31 mining (Cuckatoo31 algorithm), though slight one from what we are seeing, the miner is still probably the fastest Nvidia GPU miner for Cuckatoo31. There is also performance improvement for Grin29 (Cuckaroo29) and AE (Aeternity) on Nvidia RTX cards and the current level of performance is almost on par with other competing miners in terms of hashrate on GTX 1080 Ti GPUs, though the latest GMiner 1.36 still has a slight performance advantage on GTX 1080 Ti under Windows at least.

NBMiner v21.4 also fixed Grin31 compatibility on Windows 7 with 8GB video cards and comes with a new option to reduce the range of power consumption by multi-gpu rig (--cuckatoo-power-optimize). The use of this option could prevent power spikes from causing problems with power supplies that are near their limit and thus can help improve mining system stability, though there may be some drop of mining performance as a result, so do try the option and see it it helps or not improve system stability and ho it affects mining performance in your case.

We remind you that the NBMiner is a closed source GPU miner for Nvidia CUDA that is available for both Windows and Linux operating systems and it has the following developer fee built-in: tensority + ethash – 3%, tensority (Pascal GPUs) – 2%, tensority (Turing GPUs) – 3%, ethash – 0.65%, cuckaroo29 and cuckatoo31 – 2%.

The latest Bminer 15.4.0 comes with improved performance for Cuckaroo29 and Aeternity algorithms as well as improved compatibility on Windows. There is a new experimental flag --fast to improve the performance for Cuckaroo29 / Aeternity, but it might lead to instability on some systems, so give it a try to see if it helps on your mining rigs and if they are stable with it. Performance wise the latest Bminer is slightly faster than the hashrate provided by the latest GMiner 1.36 for Cuckaroo29 on the same mining rig with GTX 1080 Ti where we have tested and compared results.

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.
