It has been a while since we have seen an update of tpruvot’s ccminer fork (source), but there it is now a new version 2.2.6 that comes with support for the new PHI2 algorithum for Luxcoin (LUX) that has just forked from the old PHI1612 as well as support for the new Allium algorithm for Garlic. There is an official binary release compiled for Windows available for download, do note it is a 64-bit only and it has been compiled with CUDA 9.0, so make sure that you have up to date video drivers for your Nvidia GPUs installed.

On a side note, Mining Rig Rentals has also just added support for people willing to buy or sell their PHI2 mining hahsrate. So if you need more PHI2 mining power or want to sell your hashrate instead, then you might want to check it out as well. There are still just a few rigs available, but with demand there should be more appearing and if there is demand you can also make some extra profit leasing your rig(s) as well.

There is a new update of the ccMiner fork from tpruvot v2.2.2 (source) available for Nvidia GPU miners that adds supports for new algorithms and comes with some other fixes and improvements. The two new algorithms introduced are HSR used by Hshare/Hcash (x13 + custom hash) as well as the Phi used by LuxCoin, there are improvements for the SIB algorithm for Maxwell and Pascal cards. The new version comes with a small fix to handle more than 9 cards on Linux (-d 10+), an attempt to free Equihash memory “properly” and –submit-stale parameter for the supernova pool (which changes difficulty too fast).

The official Windows binary releases on tpruvot’s GitHub are compiled with CUDA 9 and they do require a more recent Nvidia video driver version 384.xx or newer in order to have support for the latest CUDA version. We have compiled a 32-bit Windows Binary for CUDA 8.0 that you can download below, it does not seem much different performance wise, it can just be used on systems with older drivers without having to update the video drivers first with ones supporting CUDA.
