The miniZ Nvidia GPU miner for Windows and Linux has been updated to version 1.5s and it brings some performance improvements for ZelHash, BeamHash II and ZHash – from 0.3% to 3% depending on algorithm and GPU used. The new version has removed support for old Nvidia Kepler GPUs, except for MinexCoin and Aion, though you can still use older versions of the miner for other algorithms should you need support on older Nvidia GPUs. The miniZ miner is still our preferred choice for ZelHash and ZEL mining and aside for the best performance we are also seeing an improved stability with the recent releases.

The MiniZ miner supports Equihash 144,5, Equihash 150,5, Equihash 150,5,3, as well as Equihash 192,7, Equihash 125,4, Equihash 210,9 and Equihash96,5 and the various crypto currencies that use these algorithms on compatible Nvidia GPUs. There are CUDA 8.0 and CUDA 10.0 binaries available including support for Nvidia RTX GPUS with the CUDA 10 release (check which version works better on older GPUs, CUDA 10 is required fo RTX). Have in mind that since miniZ is a closed source miner there is also a built-in developer fee of 2% percent included.

The miniZ Nvidia CUDA closed source miner for Windows and Linux has been updated to version 1.5r that adds a major performance improvement for Equihash 210,9 (AION) for all supported Nvidia GPUs (up to 7%, depending on the GPU model). The new version also comes with improved stability, though this mostly affects Beam mining, as well as some small improvements and bug fixes to help make the miner more usable. MiniZ is still our preferred miner for ZElCash (Equihash 125,4) as it offers the best performance for that particular algorithm and hopefully the last update also fixes the stability issues it had in the previous version that required a loop to be set in order to keep the miner running.

The miner also supports Equihash 144,5, Equihash 150,5, Equihash 150,5,3, as well as Equihash 192,7, Equihash 125,4, Equihash 210,9 and Equihash96,5 and the various crypto currencies that use these algorithms on compatible Nvidia GPUs. There are CUDA 8.0 and CUDA 10.0 binaries available including support for Nvidia RTX GPUS with the CUDA 10 release (check which version works better on older GPUs, CUDA 10 is required fo RTX).

GPU miners of Equihash-based altcoins might want to check the latest lolMiner 0.5 – an OpenCL miner for both AMD and Nvidia GPUs that supports Equihash 144.5 (ANON, ASF, BTG, BTCZ, LitecoinZ, HeptaCoin, Safecoin, Snowgem, ZEL), Equihash 96.5 (Minexcoin), Equihash 192.7 (ZERO, Genesis, SafeCash) and the newly added Equihash 210_9 (Aion). The most interesting thing in the new version is the addition of Equihash 210_9 (Aion) support, though there are of course multiple fixes and improvements applied as well. The new version comes with complete rework of all GPU algorithms for both stability and speed and this also results in the memory footprint of the algorithms getting lower, so 144/5 is now fitting to 2.2 GB and thus works on 3 GB video cards and 192/7 is now close to 3GB and should work on any 4GB video card fine. The new 210/9 (AION)uses only about 800 MB of video memory. You can find the full changelog of the lolMiner 0.5 below. The lolMiner 0.5 is a closed source miner available with binary only releases for Windows and Linux. Do note that there is also a built-in developer fee, Equihash 144.5 and 192.7 should have 2% fee and Equihash 96.5 is with 1% fee.

lolMiner 0.5 Changelog:
– Added Equihash 210_9 (Aion)
– Added Coins: AION, ANON and BTH
– Renamed the AUTO144 coin profile to AUTO144_5. Also added AUTO192_7 (see manual where it is possible to use this)
– Changed the command line style. Before it was -parameter=value and now it is --parameter value. This is more Linux style and will help integrating the miner into mining OS solutions
– Rewrote the complete manual
– Added a function to write the text output to a log (see manual)
– Added support for custom personalization strings for Equihash 144/5 and 192/7 (see manual)
– The disabling of the memory check is no longer required on 3G & 4G Nvidia GPUS (disabled by default)
– Reduced the maximum work batch for 96/5 to 24 because higher values caused crashed some times.
– Changed the standard short / long statistic intervals to 30 seconds and 5 minutes.
– Changed the run_miner scripts not to loop any more (unless you use the _with_restart version), see known issues.
