The new Nvidia CUDA miner miniZ 1.5t GPU version for Equihash-based algorithms is available, which provides additional performance, improvements and better stability. Major performance improvements for Equihash algorithms 150.5 and 210.9 with up to 4% depending on the algorithm and the GPU used. Nvidia RTX 2070 receives up to 8% on Equihash 192.7, as well as 1660 Ti. All other algorithms also have small performance improvements with an increase of up to 2%, depending on the algorithm used and the GPU. The new version also has improved support for the GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1070, as well as some fixes, such as reduced processor load when mining Beam in Windows and a cleaner exit / exit program. The miner is still our preferred choice for ZEL mining, although here we do not see a significant increase in performance compared to the previous version of MiniZ 1.5s.
The 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 various cryptocurrencies that use these algorithms on compatible Nvidia GPUs. CUDA 8.0 and CUDA 10.0 binaries are available, including support for Nvidia RTX GPUS with the release of CUDA 10 (check which version works better on older GPUs; CUDA 10 is required for RTX). Keep in mind that since miniZ is a closed source miner, there is also a built-in development fee of 2%.
Other versions of the miner:
- miniZ v1.5s — Equihash Nvidia CUDA Miner
- miniZ v1.4o = Fast Equihash Miner
- miniZ v1.3 n5 – Fast Equihash Miner
