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).

The miniZ Nvidia CUDA closed source miner for Windows and Linux has been available for a while already, but what caught our attention recently is the addition of support for the Equihash 150,5 algorithm used by BEAM. The miner also supports Equihash 144,5 as well as 192,7 and 96,5 and the various crypto currencies that use these algorithms on compatible 2GB Nvidia GPUs and it there are CUDA 8.0 and CUDA 10.0 versions available including support for Nvidia RTX GPUS with the CUDA 10 release. Since it is a closed source miner there is also a developer fee of 2% percent included.

Back to BEAM support and the Equihash 150,5 algorithm, the miniZ miner took the lead in terms of performance with its recent release over other popular miners that already had support for the algorithm. You might want to check it out if you are mining BEAM or another crypto currency that uses the same algorithm, even NiceHash support is properly working and present, so that will work too. At the moment miniZ does seem to be a good alternative for Equihash 150,5 or BEAM mining to the popular GMiner software that is one of the most used solution for that particular algorithm on Nvidia GPUs.
