The latest GMiner 1.71 miner has added support for the Ethash algorithm on Nvidia GPUs allowing you to use the miner for mining ETH and ETC for the moment with other coins to be supported in the future. The developer fee of the Ethash algorithm is set at 0.65% instead of the regular 2 percent for other algorithms supported by the miner. Do note that if you are using an Nvidia GPU with GDDR5X video memory such as the GTX 1080 series you should also run the OhGodAnETHlargementPill tool for optimal performance when mining Ethash using GMiner. A quick test has shown that the performance on GTX 1080 Ti with the Pill software running is a little lower than what the latest Claymore Dual Ethereum AMD+NVIDIA GPU Miner v15.0 is capable of delivering, so there might be some more room for improvement in future updates.

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, but not all. 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.

The latest TT-Miner Version 2.2.4 comes with three new mining algorithms supported as well as some bug fixes to help improve the miner stability. The newly added algorithms are PROGPOWH, a modified ProgPoW Rev.0.9.2 for the HYDNORA project, PROGPOW092 ProgPoW Rev.0.9.2 for SUM (Solidum Network) as well as TETHASHV1 for the TEO project. If you are interested in any of the newly added algorithms you might want to check out the projects that have implemented them as well.

TT-Miner supports ProgPOW, ProgPOWH, ProgPOW092, TETHASHV1, PROGPOWZ, Ethash, UBQhash, MTP, LYRA2REV3 and Myriad-Groestl algorithms on Nvidia GPUs and is available for Windows only, a closed source miner with 1% developer fee for all of the supported algorithms.

The latest Nanominer 1.1.0 by Nanopool comes with support for the new CryptoNight R algorithm used after the recent Monero (XMR) fork, though for now it is only supported on Nvidia GPUs. Nanominer supports Ethash, CryptoNight (v6, v7, v8, R), Ubqhash on GPU and and RandomHash/PASC on CPU at the same time (dual mining mode), though only CryptoNight R and Ethash are supported on Nvidia GPUs, the rest of the algorithms are AMD only. Performance wise the Nanominer 1.1.0 is faster on GTX 1080 Ti according on our tests compared to what the latest XMR-Stak 2.10.0 is delivering and the difference is not small… about 80 hashes more with the Nanominer for about 840+ H/s mining CryptoNight R.

Nanominer is available for both Linux and Windows, it is a closed source miner that has a 1% developer fee for the GPU supported algorithms and 3% for RandomHash on CPU. The Nanominer miner does work on all pools for the supported algorithms and is not limited only to the mining pools provided by Nanopool, so you are not limited to use only their services.
