There is a new more powerful ASIC miner from Baikal Miner that supports multiple algorithms for mining, the new Baikal Miner BK-G28 is a more powerful successor of the previous BK-X model that the company was selling up until recently. The new BK-G28 is almost 3 times faster in terms of performance on all supported algorithms and adds Groestl support on top of the already supported other algos. With the Baikal Miner BK-G28 you can get up to 28 GHS mining performance on X11, Quark, Qubit, Myriad-Groestl, Nist5 and Groestl with varying power consumption. The hashrate for Skein is at 14 GHS and for mining X11Ghost you can expect to get about 3.5 GHS. Baikal Miner is already taking orders for the new hardware, though they do not cite official price for the device yet.

Currently it is most interesting and profitable choice for the new BK-G28 is to be used for the Groestl algorithm, however a big number of these ASIC mines will easily reduce profitability in not time. Mining Groestl in GPUs is obviously getting depreciated, as most likely Baikal Miner will soon add support for Groestl for the owners of BK-X ASICs as well… most likely as son as they sell enough BK-G28s.

ccminer-1-5-75-git-spmod

A new update in the form of a Windows binary compiled from the latest Git source code of the ccMiner 1.5.75-git SP-MOD fork by SP optimized for the latest Maxwell-based video cards (source). The new release 75 marks a significant change as the project is now migrated to CUDA 7.5 and is compiled with it as a result the initial release may have slower hashrates for some algorithms than the last CUDA 6.5 release 74. Quark and Lyra2v2 should initially have pretty much the same hashrate while Qubit, X11 and X13 for example should be slightly slower. The most notable decrease in performance is with NeoScrypt, so if you are mining NeoScrypt crypto coins you should not be in a hurry to switch to the 75 release, though we are most likely soon going to see it catching up, so do not forget to support SP with a donation. Do note that the SP-MOD fork of ccMiner is designed for Nvidia Maxwell GPUs such as the already available GTX 750, 750 Ti as well as the newer GTX 960, GTX 970, GTX 980 and GTX 980 Ti and GTX Titan X. The Windows binary release we have made available here is with support for Compute 5.0 and Compute 5.2 GPUs or with other words only for Maxwell-based Nvidia video cards compiled with CUDA 7.5 and VS2013.

ccminer-1-5-74-spmod

Another update in the form of a Windows binary compiled from the latest Git source code of the ccMiner 1.5.74-git SP-MOD fork by SP optimized for the latest Maxwell-based video cards (source). The latest release comes with some small performance improvements for as well as fixes that should help resolve issues that some users are experiencing with the lyra2v2 algorithm. Do note that the SP-MOD fork of ccMiner is designed for Nvidia Maxwell GPUs such as the already available GTX 750, 750 Ti as well as the newer GTX 960, GTX 970, GTX 980 and GTX 980 Ti and GTX Titan X.
