If you might be interested in MicroBitcoin’s (MBC) Rainforestv2 mining on Nvidia GPUs you might want to check out the latest optimized spmod ccminer fork that offers significantly faster performance than the publicly available official version from djm34 (rfv2 ccminer). A quick test shows that SP’s optimized miner (closed source binary available for Windows only) is about 4 times faster than the public open source version from djm34 on a GTX 1080 Ti GPU, so significant boost in performance is to be expected on other Nvidia GPUs as well.

The only drawback with MBC is that it is currently listed on just 2 small exchanges with very little volume, although with a hashrate a few times faster than before there could be some profit to be made at least initially, so you might want to check it out. It has a huge market capitalization as the project is not so new, but the trading volume is pretty low at the moment. The cmminer SPMOD for rfv2 is compiled with CUDA 9.2 and is a 64-bit only binary for Windows, so make sure you meet the requirements to run the miner software.

Update: And very soon after the release of the miner MicroBitcoin (MBC) has successfully forked to a new algorithm – yespower2b… a CPU friendly one and not GPU mining oriented apparently, so the optimized miner was usable for just a couple of hours before the fork. MBC apparently needs to keep all their information channels more up to date about tings such as upcoming hard forks!

Nicehash has forked SP’s ccMiner 1.5.80 GPU miner for Nvidia MAxwell GPUs (source) and has added significantly improved support for the Lyra2REv2 algorithm that can apparently provide up to 100% increase in terms of performance. SO if you are mining a crypto currency that uses the Lyra2REv2 algorithm or are selling your hashrate on Nicehash, then you might want to go for the new miner. We have compiled a 32-bit Windows binary, using VS2013 with CUDA 7.5 that you can download and try. Do note that it is compiled only for Nvidia Maxwell GPUs supporting Compute 5.0 and Compute 5.2 such as GTX 750, 750 Ti, GTX 950 GTX 960, GTX 970, GTX 980, GTX 980 Ti and GTX Titan X.

ccminer-1-5-80-spmod

A quick update of the public ccMiner fork by SP of his Nvidia Maxwell optimized miner in the form of a Windows binary compiled from the latest Git source code of the ccMiner 1.5.80-git SP-MOD fork (source). The latest release comes with some fixes fox x17, x17 and Neoscrypt algorithms and some small speed improvements in various algorithms. Have in mind that is a CUDA 7.5 compiled release, the latest CUDA 6.5 release of SP’s fork of ccMiner was version 74. 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 32-bit 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.
