The latest NBMiner 20.0 has just been released with support for Grin’s Cuckatoo31 algorithm (Cuckaroo29 was already supported) as well as support for mining Grin on NiceHash. The new version also comes with an option to tune CPU usage when mining Grin, improved BTM+ETH dual mining performance on Nvidia RTX video cards s well as some bug fixes. Regarding Cuckatoo31 performance, you can expect to get similar hashrate as what the previously fastest BMiner 15.0 miner provides, however stability wise NBMiner does seem to be handling better based on our initial impressions from the new version under Windows 10.

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 GMiner version 1.33 comes with added AMD support for BEAM mining (currently only under Windows) as well as improved performance for Grin29/Aeternity and fixes. In fact this is a fixed release of the GMiner 1.32 release that was quickly recalled because of issues with GRIN soon after it was made available, the 1.33 seem to work fine for the moment. The performance you can expect from the miner for BEAM (Equihash 150,5 algorithm) is very close to what lolMiner 0.7 alpha5 manages to deliver and both miners do seem to work fine regarding NieHash support. Cuckatoo 31 performance for Grin mining is still slower (almost double) than what the latest Bminer 15.0 provides, though GMiner is more stable.

The GMiner Nvidia CUDA miner requires an Nvidia GPU with CUDA compute capability 5.0 or later as well as CUDA 9.0 driver support. Do note that GMiner is a closed source miner for Nvidia GPUs with binaries available for both Windows and Linux, also there is a 2% developer fee built-in the software.

The latest CryptoDredge Nvidia GPU miner version 0.17.0 comes with added support for a few new algorithms such as CryptoNightTurtle and CryptonightGPU as well as the Cuckaroo29 algorithm used by Grin and CuckooCycle algorithm for Aeternity. Since Grin is getting a lot of attention lately, we should let you know that CryptoDredge does not yet seem to support Cuckaroo29 on NiceHash and also that performance wise it is slower than others like Bminer and GMiner that are currently the top performing Grin miners on Nvdia GPUs. Aethernity performance using the CuckooCycle algorithm is also not the best compared to the other alternative solutions already available, so these two algos can use some optimizations.

Do note that the CryptoDredge miner supports only Nvidia GPUs and is a closed source software that comes with 1% built-in developer fee for all supported algorithms, however the dev fee is 2% currently only for MTP mining (Zcoin), there are binaries available for both Windows and Linux (CUDA 9.1/9.2/10.0).
