genoil-ethminer-1-0-7

We have compiled a Windows binary (64-bit only) from the latest ethminer 0.9.41 Genoil fork 1.0.7 beta for Nvidia CUDA as well as AMD OpenCL mining of Ethereum (source). The latest code comes with the addition of failover support for Stratum mode along with the already available in previous release failover support for the standard mining mode. You are welcome to download and try the compiled binary of the latest git code for the new 1.0.7 beta and the Stratum failover and if you experience problems you should report them. Check the included help.txt file and the example BAT file for more information on how to use the new Stratum failover mode. We are also seeing a tiny bit of performance increase on Nvidia using the CUDA mode and apparently using the OpenCL on Nvidia should now also provide similar performance as CUDA (was slower before), there should not be no change in hashrate on AMD GPUs.

genoil-ethminer-1-0-6

The fork of ethminer from Genoil that is specifically optimized for Nvidia CUDA GPUs has been updated to a new beta version – Ethminer 0.9.41-genoil-1.0.6 (source). The latest release of Genoil’s ethminer for CUDA comes with some fixes and new useful features, so if you are using it you might be interested in checking the new 1.0.6 beta, but be aware it can have some bugs. The latest version by default should run on all available CUDA GPUs like it does for OpenCL, it has an option to delete old DAG files that are just taking up space, comes with Stratum support and an option to set a failover pool in case the main one fails for some reason. You can check the help.txt file for the new options available in the latest release and yo are welcome to try them and report if everything works Ok for you. The fork from Genoil, although targeted at Nvidia CUDA miners, will also work on AMD OpenCL GPUs, but there it should not be any different than from the default ethminer that is OpenCL only.

ethminer-0-9-41-genoil-1-0-5

The fork of ethminer for Nvidia CUDA GPUs has been updated to a new version – Ethminer 0.9.41-genoil-1.0.5 (source). The latest release of Genoil’s ethminer for CUDA should bring back support for older Compute 3.0 GPUs, so if you have one of these you should check to see if it will work as it should now (if you had issues with the previous 0.9.41-genoil-1.0.4b3 release). It also has some cleaned up code, but you should not expect to see a performance boost with it. Do note that when running with CUDA it will run only on the first GPU, so you need to manually set the option --cuda-devices 0 1 2 3 4 5 to have for example the miner run on a 6-card GPU mining rig. The fork from Genoil, although targeted at Nvidia CUDA miners, will also work on AMD OpenCL GPUs, but there it should not be any different than from the default ethminer that is OpenCL only.
