The latest NBMiner 27.7 update comes with improvements for Handshake (HNS) and HNS + ETH Dual mining on Nvidia GPUs, bringing slightly better performance, as well as some fixes such as NVML initialization failure in certain cases and ETH mining on NiceHash. With the latest performance improvement, NBMiner 27.7 is again becoming the leader in mining performance Handshake from the latest GMiner. Thanks to the latest performance improvements, the 6 × 1080Ti mining rig is approaching the Blackminer FPGA with HNS support, although the GPUs are still a bit slower and consume a bit more energy. However, HNS mining is now probably still worth it when the first Handshake ASIC miner is expected in June.
