Since Ethereumpool has updated their Ethereum mining pool in a way that it requires the use of the latest version 0.9.41 of ethminer and we’ve got requests to post the latest version, we have prepared a package including ethminer 0.9.41 CUDA by Genoil (source) as well as the official ethminer 0.9.41 from the master branch (source) for Windows (64-bit is required!).

Do note that the CUDA version of the miner does support OpenCL mining as well and not only CUDA on Nvidia cards, the OpenCL support should function on both Nvidia and AMD GPUs. The ethminer 0.9.41 CUDA version is based on the new CUDA OpenCL PTX branch that requires at least Compute 3.5 capabilities from your Nvidia-based video card, so it may not work on older video cards. If you are having trouble running the new CUDA miner in CUDA mode on older Nvidia GPU you can revert to an older version or try using ethminer in OpenCL mode. Additionally to get better performance you can try adding the following command line parameters to the ethminer OpenCL and CUDA version:

For OpenCL: --cl-global-work 16384
For CUDA: --cuda-grid-size 8192 --cuda-block-size 128 --cuda-turbo

We have tested the two versions of ethminer version 0.9.41 and they both seem to work well as well as to report the actual hashrate you get when mining using the Ethereumpool mining pool regardless of what hashrate (difficulty) you set via the command line for running the miner software.
