The latest update of Bminer 11.4.0 has introduced experimental support for mining BEAM (Equihash 150/5) on AMD GPUs after the previous release brought support for the new algorithm on Nvidia GPUs. In order to enable AMD support you need to use an additional parameter in the command line of the miner, for example to run on the first AMD GPU: -devices amd:0, you need to list the deice IDs of the available AMD video cards in the mining rig that you want to use for mining. Do note that the BEAM Project does have an official AMD GPU miner as well as an Nvidia CUDA one, so you might want to try and compare the performance on AMD hardware between the two. Also note that BEAM mining support is still experimental on Bminer, so there could be some issues and problems at this point.

We remind you that that Bminer is a closed source Nvidia GPU miner available for Linux and Windows in the form of pre-compiled binaries and that there is a 2% development fee for Bytom (BTM), Equihash and Zhash coins, 0.65% for Ethash and 1.3% for dual mining Ethash and Blake.

The latest Bminer 11.0.0 release has introduced Dual Mining mode for BTM/ETH similar to the support in NBMiner 12.0, although Bminer already had dual mining support for other algorithms the BTM/ETH pair is new. Have in mind that still not all of the BTM mining pools are supported by Bminer (like Antpool for example), so make sure you are on a compatible pool like f2pool in order to get the optimal performance with this miner in single or dual mining mode with Bytom mining.

Does somebody still remember the Gridseed ASIC miners that could dual-mine BTC and LTC a few years ago? Well, it seems that a new dual mining ASIC miner is coming from Baikal Miner that is capable of mining two different algorithms at the same time. The new Baikal Miner BK-D supports Blake256R14 or Blake256R8 as first algorithm with 280 GHS hashrate and LBRY or Pascal as second algorithm with 70 GHS. You can have the miner mine any of the two pairs of algorithms simultaneously at 1100W of power usage total.

There is still no information about pricing and availability however, Biakal Miner have just announced their new device and it is yet to even become listed on the official company website. Doesn’t seem like too profitable at the moment, so it is more of an interesting product as we did not have dual miners in the fork of ASICs for quite some time. Availability and pricing of the device can make all the difference, so we need to wait and see what they will be. With a price of $2100 USD without a PSU it seems even less interesting…
