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%.

It seems that the Todek TODDMINER C1 is not going to be the only Eaglesong ASIC miner out there, Bitmain is also joining the fun with their Bitmain AntMiner K5 ASIC miner. The TODDMINER C1 promises to deliver 1.6 TH/s hashrate with 1100 Watts of power usage with $4100 USD price and supposedly already shipping, while the Bitmain AntMiner K5 is rated at 1130 GH/s hashrate with 1580 Watts of power usage and a price of about $1400 USD or significantly cheaper. Bitmain plans to start shipping the K5 Eaglesong ASIC miners in the first half of April and they are only available on their Chinese website for the moment. Eaglesong mining has started with GPUs and has relatively quickly moved onto FPGA mining and now it seems the transition to ASIC mining is starting to take place. Hashaltcoins BlackMiner F1+ does 22 GH/s and F1-Ultra does manage t get you 26 GH/s hashrate at the moment, so ASIC miners will really offer much faster performance when they become available and will significantly increase the total network hashrate.

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.
