The newest GMiner 1.35 miner comes with improved performance for Grin29 and Swap on Nvidia cards, additional support for mining on AMD video cards for Grin29, Swap and Aeternity (adding to the already available support for BEAM), improved pool side hashrate for Swap and various bug fixes. The performance for GRIN’s Cuckaroo29 and SWAP’s Cuckaroo29s algorithm is currently probably the fastest compared to other available miners (tested on Windows 10 with GTX 1080 Ti). The additional algorithms getting AMD GPU support is nice, though not that useful as these mining rigs are not performing that good with the specific algorithms and the expected profit is not attractive at all at this point. Still it is good to have more alternatives for miners for different algorithms, so it will be good to see GMiner getting support for additional algorithms on AMD as well.

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 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 latest update of the AMD GPU miner lolMiner 0.7 alpha5 brings support for BEAM (Equihash 150,5 algorithm) on NiceHash giving access to AMD miners to sell their hashrate on the platform. In the last day the most profitable hashrate selling was for BEAM on NiceHash, but unfortunately not for AMD… it was for Nvidia miners with higher-end GPUs. Nevertheless, AMD miners now have access to sell their Equihash 150,5 hashrate as well on NiceHash with the lolMiner 0.7 alpha5, just make sure you set TLS to off for use with NiceHash (--tls 0 in cmd or "TLS" : 0 in config file to turn if off for BEAM). We remind you that lolMiner is a closed source AMD GPU miner available for Windows and Linux as pre-compiled binaries only and that there is a developer fee for using the software.
