miniZ v1.5t3: performance hanging for ZelHash and BeamHashII

GitHub: DOWNLOAD miniZ v1.5t3

A new version of Nvidia CUDA GPU miniZ 1.5t3 is available for Equihash-based algorithms, providing additional performance for Equihash 125.4 (ZelHash) used by ZEL and Equihash 150.5.3 (BeamHashII) used by BEAM. Support for Equihash 125.4 (ZEL) is significantly improved for various GPUs – up to ~ 11% (1660 Ti) and ~ 8% (RTX 2070). Equihash 150.5.3 (BEAM) support brings significant improvements of up to ~ 3-4% for the GTX 1660 Ti, RTX 2070, and minor for other GPUs. The new version also improves the handling of pool connections. The recently added –ocX option to automatically configure the best kernel for your GPU and OC settings (currently only for 125.4 and 150.5.3).

miniZ v1.5t3 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.

DevFee: Keep in mind that since miniZ is a closed source miner, there is also a built-in development fee of 2%.

Please note miners are often marked as malware by antivirus programs. This is not so, they are marked simply because they are cryptocurrency miners. If you do not trust the software, do not use it!


+ 125,4 (ZEL): major improvements for various GPUs. Up to ~11%* (1660 Ti) and ~8%* (RTX 2070).
+ 150,5,3 (BEAM): major improvements up to ~3-4%* for GTX 1660 Ti, RTX 2070. Minor for other GPUs.
+ Better pool connection handling.
+ Added --ocX option for automatic tunning of the best kernel for your GPU and OC settings. (At the moment for 125,4 and 150,5,3 only)
+ Added @algo@, @date@, @version@, @user@, and @host@ macros to log file name.
+ Write for ex. --logfile @algo@@date@@version@.log in the command line.

Improved stability.
*  For stock settings. These may vary with OC settings. For example the RTX 2070 in ECOs improved >4% for Beam.

 Few notes:
When adjusting your GPUs settings do not forget to check if your GPU supports oc1/oc2. If so it may boost your performance a little. --oc1/oc2 changed for some GPUs and algos in the new version (125,4 and 150,5,3 only).
In this new release we added an option for automatic tunning of the best kernel for your GPU and OC settings --ocX option (At the moment for ZEL and Beam only)

On Download page you can find Cuda 10 and Cuda 8 versions (Linux and Windows). For Turing architectures (16xx series and RTX) you need to use Cuda 10.0.

* We are considering to drop Cuda 8 support in future versions. *
