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%.

Innosilicon G32 Grin ASIC Miner is what seems to be the world’s first ASIC miner that is intended to support GRIN’s Cuckatoo31/32 algorithms. The device is apparently still in development with even the exact specifications not yet announced,though that does not stop the company to already take pre-orders for the first two batches (available only for pre-orders) with $2000 USD deposit (refundable within 2 weeks of final spec announcement) for each miner. Innosilicon will announce the preliminary specifications of the miner should be announced before mid-April, though the device should be with sub 500W of power usage and still unknown hashrate.

It is interesting to note that work on GRIN ASIC miners has already been started with the launch of he crypto currency as it is really still very young one and we are highly likely going to see ASIC mining hardware before the end of the year. Meanwhile however GRIN should work more on their user friendliness as one of the important things seen as a setback for the project at the moment is the lack of a proper wallet for Windows users as well as the not so easy transfer of coins between pools, exchanges and wallets.

The latest NBMiner 21.0 that has just been released comes with support for Aeternity (AE) as well as improved miner stability and performance for the Grin29 and Grin31 algorithms (Cuckaroo29 and Cuckatoo31). Performance wise the new version does seem to catch up to the competition regarding Cuckaroo29 hashrates (the latest Gminer is still slightly faster) and could currently be the fastest miner for Cuckatoo31 in terms of hashrate (at least for Windows on GTX 1080 Ti) compared to BMiner and GMiner. Stability wise Cuckatoo31 however could use some more improvements as we see the miner crashing on some systems that otherwise work just fine with competing miners.
