New miniZ v1.5t3 Nvidia CUDA Miner with ZelHash and BeamHashII Improvements (cryptomining-blog)
A new version of the miniZ 1.5t3 Nvidia CUDA GPU miner for Equihash-based algorithms is available and it brings extra performance Equihash 125,4 (ZelHash) uzed by ZEL and Equihash 150,5,3 (BeamHashII) used by BEAM. The Equihash 125,4 (ZEL) support comes with major improvements for various GPUs – up to ~11% (1660 Ti) and ~8% (RTX 2070). The Equihash 150,5,3 (BEAM) support brings major improvements up to ~3-4% for GTX 1660 Ti, RTX 2070 and minor for other GPUs. The new version also has better pool connection handling. A newly added
--ocX option for automatic tuning of the best kernel for your GPU and OC settings (currently only for for 125,4 and 150,5,3). There are some new macros supported for the log file name and last, but not by importance – stability of the miner should also be improved over the previous version.
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 Equihash 96,5 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.
