The latest Bminer 15.0 has finally fixed support for Cuckatoo31 on the 11GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GPUs under Windows and now also introduces support for 8GB video cards for Cuckatoo31, but not yet under Windows 10 (Windows 7 should work). The new version also apparently improves stability of the Cuckatoo31 solver, though our short experience with 1080 Ti under Windows 10 shows that more is desired to make the miner more stable and reliable when using the Cuckatoo31 algorithm under Win 10. Still feel free to give it a try, NiceHash is supported and currently Bminer 15.0 offers the best performance for the C31 algo used by Grin, though Windows 10 may still not be the best choice for optimal performance and stability for that particular algorithm.

We remind you that that Bminer is a closed source Nvidia GPU miner available for Linux and Windows in the form of pre-compiled binaries and that there is a 2% development fee for Grin, Beam, Bytom (BTM), Equihash and Zhash coins, 0.65% for Ethash and 1.3% for dual mining Ethash and Blake.

The latest Bminer 14.2.0 has just been released with experimental support for Cuckatoo31 (C31) algorithm being used by GRIN for Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GPUs with claimed performance of up to about 0.90 G/s on GTX 1080 Ti with stock settings. This seems pretty good, however we are currently unable to make the miner work properly under Windows 10 as we are getting an error about insufficient memory available on device and it seems other people are reporting the same issue (it is experimental support). Do note that GRIN mining support on NiceHash is not yet available for Bminer and that goes for both Cuckaroo29 and Cuckatoo31 algorithms, so you can instead use the latest GMiner for NiceHash.

The latest GMiner version 1.31 brings an important update for everyone interested in Grin mining, namely support for Grin’s Cuckatoo31 algorithm to Windows miners as previously the C31 algo was only available with the official Grin miner for Linux and Mac OS X. Do note that Cuckatoo31 support (Grin31)requires 7.4 GB VRam, will work on 8GB cards under Linux and Windows 7, but will not work under Windows 10. Video cards such as GTX 1080 Ti do work under Windows 10 and should be able to provide about 0.6-0.7 G/s hashrate for C31. The latest update should now work fine with both C29 and C31 for Grin in NiceHash as well as there were some issues with the last few versions and NiceHash in the last days due to changes happening with the Grin support.

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.
