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 official release of tpruvot’s ccMiner fork version 2.2.5 available (source) that adds support for a few new mining algorithms, namely X12, X16r and X16S. The latest release also fixes issues on Neoscrypt and Equihash for the Nvidia Volta cards according to the developer. The two new X16 variants are getting a lot of attention lately – the X16r used by Ravencoin (RVN) and X16S used by Pigeoncoin (PGN). For people looking to mine X16r or X16S this may not be the fastest implementation out there, there are a lot of different ccminer forks and miners supporting that might provide better performance, so you might want to play around with these as well.

The latest official release version 2.2.5 from tpruvot is available as both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows binary releases for everyone using Windows and not keen on compiling the miner from source. The Windows binaries built with CUDA 9 for SM 3.0 or later Nvidia GPUs, so make sure you have up to date video drivers installed with support for CUDA 9.0 on your mining rigs.

We have received some requests for the fastest public fork of ccMiner for the Keccak algorithm and it seems that the version from alexis78 (source) is giving one of the best performances out there from the popular open source forks. There seems to be even more optimized version available as a private miner being sold, though we have not tested that one and cannot comment on the performance it offers. Alternatively the ccMiner fork from KlausT (source) also does seem to offer very similar performance as far as Keccak mining goes.

We have prepared a 64-bit Windows binary compiled from the alexis78’s source using CUDA 8.0 and compiled with VC 2013 that you can download and try if you want to mine Keccak on NiceHash or directly mine a specific crypto coin using this mining algorithm for its Proof of Work (PoW). The default intensity might be a bit high for some cards, so you might want to dial it down a bit if the miner is unstable on your mining rigs. If you are interested how much a GTX 1080 Ti does using this miner for Keccak, well it can do 1200-1300 MH/s with optimized settings for lower power usage. If you are wondering which altcoin is driving the demand and profitability for Keccak lately it is apparently SmartCash (SMART), prior to that there was also a short peak for MaxCoin (MAX) as well a couple of weeks ago.
