The latest two versions of GMiner 1.37 and 1.38 have increased the supported range of GPUs over what the miner was capable of running on regarding Grin, Swap and Aeternity mining as well as some additional algorithms now also supported on AMD GPUs. GMiner 1.37 added Equihash 144,5 and 192,7 solver support for AMD miners on top of the already existing Cuckaroo29, Cuckoo29, Cuckaroo29s and Equihash 150,5 as well as some minor performance improvements for beam on AMD cards. A 5GB solver for Grin29 / Swap / Aeternity was added as well that allows the mining on 6GB cards under Windows 10 and in the latest release that was further improved by adding 4GB solver for Grin29 and Swap that should work under Linux and Windows 7 on 4GB VRAM GPUs.

The GMiner miner requires an Nvidia GPU with CUDA compute capability 5.0 or later as well as CUDA 9.0 driver support, some algorithms are already supported on AMD GPUs as well (Cuckaroo29, Cuckoo29, Cuckaroo29s, Beam’s Equihash 150,5 as well as the recently added Equihash 144,5 and 192,7). Do note that GMiner is a closed source miner for Nvidia and AMD GPUs with binaries available for both Windows and Linux, also there is a 2% developer fee built-in the software.

It has been a while since the last release CryptoDredge 0.17.0 was made available to Nvidia GPU miners, but here comes the new CryptoDredge 0.18.0 and it brings some new and useful features on the table. The new version brings support for the Argon2d algorithm (argon2d-dyn only) as well as the much anticipated support for MTP and Cuckaroo29 on NiceHash. Prior to that the only MTP miner with NiceHash support was TT-Miner and currently MTP is among the most profitable algorithms for Nvidia GPUs on the service. The new CryptoDredge v0.18.0 also makes API more compatible with ccminer API, adds support for mining Aeternity on GPUs with 2 GB of memory (Linux only) as well as introduces support for mining Cuckaroo29 on GPUs with 4 GB of memory (Linux only) and for windows users it indicates activity to suppress auto sleep mode.

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).

The newest NBMiner 21.4 update comes with further improvement in the performance for Grin31 mining (Cuckatoo31 algorithm), though slight one from what we are seeing, the miner is still probably the fastest Nvidia GPU miner for Cuckatoo31. There is also performance improvement for Grin29 (Cuckaroo29) and AE (Aeternity) on Nvidia RTX cards and the current level of performance is almost on par with other competing miners in terms of hashrate on GTX 1080 Ti GPUs, though the latest GMiner 1.36 still has a slight performance advantage on GTX 1080 Ti under Windows at least.

NBMiner v21.4 also fixed Grin31 compatibility on Windows 7 with 8GB video cards and comes with a new option to reduce the range of power consumption by multi-gpu rig (--cuckatoo-power-optimize). The use of this option could prevent power spikes from causing problems with power supplies that are near their limit and thus can help improve mining system stability, though there may be some drop of mining performance as a result, so do try the option and see it it helps or not improve system stability and ho it affects mining performance in your case.

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%.
