The latest Bminer 14.2.0 has just been released with experimental support for Cuckatoo31 (C31) algorithm being used by GRIN for Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GPUs with claimed performance of up to about 0.90 G/s on GTX 1080 Ti with stock settings. This seems pretty good, however we are currently unable to make the miner work properly under Windows 10 as we are getting an error about insufficient memory available on device and it seems other people are reporting the same issue (it is experimental support). Do note that GRIN mining support on NiceHash is not yet available for Bminer and that goes for both Cuckaroo29 and Cuckatoo31 algorithms, so you can instead use the latest GMiner for NiceHash.

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 13.0.0 should be the preferred choice for a Nvidia GPU miners that are currently mining Grin as it offers the best performance at the moment compared to other available miners. However there are still some things that may need extra work such as full worker support for Sparkpool (one of the first and largest currently available for Grin mining). At the moment you can use Bminer with Sparkpool, but all your rigs will be under a single worker called “miner-rig-0” as the worker setting of the pool interfere with the settings for pool, username and password schema that Bminer uses. The extra performance of up to about 50-60% compared to other miners such as NBminer or GMiner and others is well worth it. There is apparently a way to actually setup a worker on Sparkpool, you just need to escape the slash used for setting up a worker name and it will work just fine, here you ca find a short guide on how to do it.

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.
