The latest two version of GMiner 1.45 come with some extra performance for the following supported algorithms: Grin29 (GRIN), Aeternity (AE) and SWAP on Nvidia GPUs. So if you are mining any of these on Nvidia-based mining rigs you might want to check out the new version and take advantage of the slight hashrate boost that it should provide for your hardware.

The GMiner miner requires an Nvidia GPU with CUDA compute capability 5.0 or later as well as CUDA 9.0 driver support, some algorithms are already supported on AMD GPUs as well (Cuckaroo29, Cuckoo29, Cuckaroo29s, Beam’s Equihash 150,5 as well as the recently added Equihash 144,5 and 192,7). Do note that GMiner is a closed source miner for Nvidia and AMD GPUs with binaries available for both Windows and Linux, also there is a 2% developer fee built-in the software.

NiceHash has made their new platform available in public beta for everyone interested to check and try it out before it goes out of testing and replaces the currently available platform for selling and buying crypto hashrate. The most notable new features are the new Rig Manager, a new Linux-based NiceHashOS and an integrated cryptocurrency exchange right into the platform itself. Do note that for the duration of the beta period, the entire platform runs on testnet, so you will get paid in TBTC and not in real BTC. Testnet coins don’t have any real value and exist only for testing purposes, you can get some to play around with the platform thanks to a number of available faucets. You can find more details on that in the How to use testnet PDF with links for TBTC faucet, but also for some altcoins also supported in the beta of the platform.

The new NiceHashOS is a simple Linux-based operating system for mining with support for all of the available crypto algorithms on the NiceHash platform. You can put the OS on a USB flash drive and boot directly for it, eliminating the need to use a dedicated hard drive or an SSD drive on each mining rig. The new NiceHashOS beta apparently supports TDP and manual clock settings, though no mention about manual fan control in the released NiceHash OS Beta User Guide PDF. The OS can be accessed locally as well as remotely via SSH and configuration is being done via editing various configuration files, the mining operating system is based on Tiny Core Linux and there is no GUI available by default.

The latest two versions of GMiner 1.39 and 1.40 have brought a number of improvements on Nvidia GPUs such as a new 4GB solver for Aeternity, improved Equihash 144,5 and 192,7 performance, performance improvements for Grin29, Swap and Aeternity as well as the most notable significant performance boost for BEAM (Equihash 150,5). You can see a something like a 25-30% performance boost for Equihash 150,5 on GTX 1080 Ti and that is really nice increase for the hashrate you can get if mining Beam. Performance wise you can get a BEAM hashrate similar to that of the latest MiniZ miner and the increase over the previous GMiner releases is significant for Equihash 150,5 so well worth the upgrade.
