GMiner 2.07 (Nvidia and AMD GPU Miner) continue to improve the performance of Cuckatoo32 with the latest update, which can provide up to + 20% performance improvement depending on the GPU and OC mode used, according to the developer. Definitely, this is a good improvement that is worth updating if you are developing everything that uses the Cuckatoo32 algorithm, but also keep in mind that the default development fee for the Cuckatoo32 algorithm is set at 3% and is not the standard 2%, as for most other supported algorithms. from GMiner.
GMiner miner software was originally only an Nvidia GPU miner, although some algorithms are already supported on AMD GPUs. Please note that GMiner is a closed source miner for Nvidia and AMD GPUs with binary files available for both Windows and Linux, with the firmware paying developers 2%.
improved cuckatoo32 performance (up to +20% dependent on GPU and OC mode)
GMiner was created by a Russian group of specialists in the field of high performance computing and cryptography. The first version of GMiner was released on September 21, 2018 and was received quite warmly among users. Thanks to its unique developments and stability, in just six months, the miner became a favorite on the Equihash algorithms. The miner is focused on NVIDIA and AMD platforms and supports most popular algorithms such as: Ethash, ProgPoW, KAWPOW, Equihash, CuckooCycle. GMiner maintains a leading position in the mining of such coins as Beam, Grin, Cortex, Bitcoin Gold. In 2020, the miner added support for Ethash, ProgPoW and KAWPOW algorithms with high performance relative to competitors. The development team never stops at what has been achieved and achieves the maximum performance of the algorithms with the minimum power consumption, it is these qualities that distinguish GMiner from the competitors and win the hearts of users.
commission is charged continuously, and not in intervals (as in most miners), which has a positive effect on the user’s profitability on PPLNS pools
verifying generated DAG, warning when GPU overclocking is very high for Ethash, Etcash, KAWPOW and ProgPoW algorithms, helps to overclock GPU without errors
verifying Shares on processor, warning when GPU overclocking is very high for Ethash, Etcash, KAWPOW and ProgPoW algorithms, helps to overclock GPU without errors
DAG caching if the GPU has enough memory, DAG files are not recomputed when switching to another algorithm when mining Ethash + Zilliqa or Nicehash, which has a positive effect on user profitability
auto selection of optimal kernels for each device on Ethash, Etcash, KAWPOW
ability to manually select kernel on each device for Ethash, Etcash
temperature control and stop the GPU in case of overheating
watchdog – process-observer of state of main systems of the miner, which will restart the miner in case of crash or freeze
mechanism to restore lost connection with pool
support failover pools, the miner uses failover pools until the connection with the main pool is restored
support secure connections
support SOCKS5 proxy
support tor network
informative and readable tabular statistics output to console
display of detailed information on each device (temperature, power consumption, cooler load, memory frequency, processor frequency, energy efficiency)
parallel output of information to console and to file on disk
built-in statistics server – remote monitoring of the miner in browser
memory tweaks for Nvidia GPUs with GDDR5X and GDDR5 memory
core clocks, memory clocks, core voltage, memory voltage, fan speed, power limit overclocking for Windows
safe DAG generation for Nvidia GPUs
automatic fan speed control for target temperature
support charging of maintenance fee
How to set up Gminer
Step 1 – Download the miner
Choose your release to download: the official GitHub repository or use the website.
Step 2 – Set up batch file
Using the binance pool example, the batch file will look like this:
