Claymore has actually released yet an additional upgrade for his ZCash AMD GPU Miner that brings some even more added efficiency boost for mining Money (ZEC), nevertheless the most up to date v12.0 of the miner does come some brand-new specifics. The most recent version v12.0 has boosted speeds: concerning 405 H/s on supply 390X, 450 H/s on stock Nano, 290 H/s on stock 280X, 295 H/s on stock RX480. It nevertheless has concerns dealing with higher intensity on older GPUs with less VRAM such as 280X where the intensity could have to be reduced. Likewise on mining gears with 6x GPUs where you may have simply 4GB of system memory you may observe problem running the miner effectively on all 6 cards at maximum efficiency unless you have actually evaluated the very least 20GB SWAP data. Reducing the intensity by hand could aid, but it is much eaрier to simply enhance the quantity of space alloted for the swap data…
The Minebox job has actually been announced a while ago as a fascinating solution that incorporates a NAS device for saving your personal data with a blockchain powered cryptocurrency for saving various other customer’s information on your totally free and extra area and generating income for doing that. Minebox depends on budget-friendly Venture quality hardware from HP, namely the HP MicroServer that we’ve covered prior to as an interesting option in regards to utilize with SiaCoin and Storj for example. So we were not surprised that this task has actually determined to opt for the specific equipment from HP as well as expand the base NAS capability with assistance for SiaCoin (SC) “mining” by renting your presently unused area. It is certainly an intriguing concept, getting equipment that you could use for file storage as well as at the exact same time it might also spend for itself thanks to renting out the extra resources such as complimentary hard disk room gradually.
If Minebox gets a great deal os user passion as well as we believe that it has the possible to do so, after that it may trigger the passion in other firms that are specializing already in more feature abundant NAS remedies to incorporate blockchain-powered solutions as well as a part of their portfolio. We are discussing companies such as Asustor, Qnap, Synology and also others that may make a decision to add assistance for their items to rent unused room and allow the proprietors of the equipment to obtain paid for that thanks to sustain for SiaCoin or Storj or perhaps something else…
… Minebox has revealed that it will start a presale of the MineBox NAS equipment beginning following week – – February 6th, evidently using ShapeShift as a companion for the repayment with Bitcoin as well as other altcoins. Though very little details concerning the presale or when the real gadgets will begin to ship is yet available, hopefully it will certainly be quickly. It interests see if there will additionally be a software application just service additionally available for advanced individuals that may want building their very own devices or adding it on existing HP Proliant Microservers they might own. Up until now it is most likely tha Minebox will certainly be staying with supplying users with the complete remedy of hardware and also software program with each other, though you ought to still be able to update your preliminary hardware such as adding extra difficult drives for example.

Yet another interesting piece of data about the well-liked ASIC manufacturer Bitmain as apparently the company is preparing to launch their 1st Antminer L3 Scrypt Miner. Some of you might keep in mind that back in 2014 Bitmain was arranging to launch Antminer L1 Sctypt ASIC miner, but that 1 never came into existence. Apparently back then the company reached a stage that permitted even with out launching a item to carry on working and get an even more efficient answer and right here comes the L3. There is some details accessible about the device currently, even however it is not yet officially listed on the English site of Bitmain (you can discover a merchandise webpage on the Chinese one).
You can uncover some photos and even some early performance final results on-line from peopel that managed to get some early units apparently, including a tweet from charlie Lee who designed Litecoin (LTC) about getting a single of these devices. A lot more common availability is expected occasionally in February possibly because of the incoming Chinese New Year, so we are going to have to wait some much more time. What is the most interesting point about the Bitmain AntMiner L3 Scrypt ASIC miner is the efficiency that the device not only apparently guarantees, but also delivers – 250 MHS hashrate with just 400 Watt energy utilization. This makes is considerably much more electrical power productive compared to its only competitor with a latest generation of Scrypt ASIC hardware obtainable – Innosilicon A4 Dominator (280 MHS at 1000W). The price listed on the merchandise webpage is 1.825 BTC or a tiny above $ 1600 USD at the existing exchange rate. Do note that the Antminer L3 ASIC does come with no a power supply, but with the energy usage the gadget has it does not require costly and harder to locate energy provide, a good 500W PSU must do just fine.
Bitmain Antminer L3 Specifications:
– Scrypt mining hashrate: 250 MHS
– Power consumption: 400W ± ten% (at the wall, with Bitmain’s APW3-1600 PSU, 93% efficiency, 25°C ambient temperature))

Bitmain has announced a new AntMiner T9 ASIC miner that should go on sale today for $ 1104 USD offering eleven.five THS hashrate. The new miner is based on the preceding AntMiner S9, although it comes with a bit significantly less chips that are apparently clocked at a higher operating frequency. The new T9 is a bit more affordable, but not as effective as the S9 as primarily based on the official specs it consumes about 1450W for the 11.five THS whilst the Batch 22 of the S9 came with 11 THS at 1078W and Batch 23 was with 14 THS for 1372W. The new T9 miner comes with just 171 BM1387 chips although the S9 was based mostly on 189 BM1387 chips. The two fans cooling the new gadget are the same as on S9, so you can anticipate comparable level of noise from the gadget. So in short the new AntMiner T9 does not in truth appear so desirable to miners, but with the lack of new S9 miners you might not have much of a selection…

Simply in time for Xmas a brand-new NiceHash EQM 1.0.4 a miner is offered with about 10-15 % rate increase for proprietors of Nvidia GPUs mining Zcash(ZEC). Like previous variations of the EQM miner it will only benefit marketing your hashrate on NiceHash, so unable to mine on one more swimming pool with it. The most up to date speed bump is planned for SM52 as well as SM61 capable Nvidia GPUs (that suggests just 9xx and also 10xx cards), so no speedups for proprietors for first gen Maxwell GTX 750 (Ti) however. Currently only a Windows version is available. We are seeing a great bump from concerning 320 H/s with the previous version to a little over 360 H/s on a stock GTX 1070 GPU with the 1.0.4 a, overclocking brings also extra hashrate.
— For additional information and also to download and install the NiceHash EQM Zcash Nvidia Optimized Miner…
There is a brand-new miner for Nvidia CUDA GPUs available for extracting Zcash(ZEC) guaranteeing a slightly much faster hashrate compared to the currently fastest execution of the NiceHash EQM Zcash NVIDIA miner. The most important feature of this new miner is that it is not limited to only extracting on NiceHash, so despite the exact same rate it is still a good thing to have as it supports Stratum mining on other mining swimming pools besides NiceHash (it does seem to support NiceHash’s Extranonce Subscribe also). Inning accordance with the writer of the miner it is created for Nvidia Pascal GPUs, but must function on older Compute 3.0 or higher Nvidia GPUs with at the very least 1 GB of video memory. Do note that the miner is not open resource and also there is only a Windows 64-bit binary launch readily available right now, it does not appear to be based upon other prominent codebase and is not being reported as malicious software application by antivirus products. You could still intend to have something in mind as the individual that published it on Bitcointalk is a new account and also not a well-known miner programmer, also though it appears that the miner does function very well.
The EWBF CUDA Zcash Miner has an integrated designer charge that is established at 2%, implying that every 10 minutes the software program will certainly switch to a various swimming pool as well as mine for the developer some shares and after that obtain back to mining for you. The author of the software application declares speeds of about 250 H/s for Nvidia GTX 1070 while the NiceHash EQM miner does currently about 220 H/s on the same GPU. Our fast tests revealed a hashrate of about 235-240 H/s average (as much as 250 H/s) on supply GTX 1070, so still a little much faster, yet not as much as you could desire it to… … then there is the dev cost as well and also it appears that we are seeing somewhat much more declines than, particularly when changing to extract for the dev fee. So while this could be an intriguing option for customers ready to my own beyond NiceHash, the actual efficiency that you may obtain poolside could not be a lot various than with exactly what is presently the fastest application from NiceHash (thinking about the dev charge and the declined shares)…
Claymore’s Zcash (ZEC) AMD miner has been up to date a couple of times currently because the release of the original version from some days in the past. The number of optimizations and hashrate enhancements with pretty considerably each major update has been tremendous, bringing back to life many of the previous AMD Radeon GPUs such as 7950/7970 or the 280X, some of the most common mining video cards for the last number of many years. The latest release, presently a significant edition 6 brought far more fixes and optimizations in terms of performance. As a single would expect Nvidia is left behind after a lot more, even though there were some signs that lately it was commencing to catch up to the amounts of overall performance of AMD GPUs, it is now but once again substantially slower. So owners of Nvidia-based mining rigs may well want to switch to some other substitute for mining at the moment right after the most recent functionality boosts from Claymore. Do have in thoughts even so that Claymore’s Zcash miner does come with a two.5% dev fee, beneath is a list of major adjustments and updates of the miner following the original release:
– improved pace by about 20-25% (depends on card model). About 180H/s on stock 390.
– “-i” parameter values are 𔆀 now, default value is “-i 4”.
– fixed situation with mixed cards.
– improved speed by about thirty-50% (depends on card model). About 145H/s on stock 390X.
– improved help for Catalyst sixteen.x and 4xx cards.
– diminished CPU utilization.
– improved speed by about twenty% (depends on card model). Up to 100H/s on stock 390X on “-i two” mode.
– extra “-retrydelay” alternative.
– added “-nofee” alternative.
– numerous bug fixes.
– altered coloring.
– EthMan: extra “View miner console” command.
– enhanced pace by 20-30% (depends on card model). Up to 80H/s on stock 390X on “-i two” mode.
– enhanced stability.
– additional “-i” alternative for adjusting mining intensity and CPU utilization.
– enhanced pace for higher intensity mode (“-i 2”), about 60H/s on stock 390X, 50H/s on stock 280X.
– because nicehash cannot improve their ddos protection, now “-allpools 1” is required for this pool.
– improved speed by five-15% (depends on card model).
– added Linux version.
– fixed concern with rejected shares right after devfee mining.
– take away “-allpools 1” selection if you use it and mine on miningpoolhub, suprnova, coinmine or nicehash pools.
– added “XnSub” support for Nicehash.
– fixed bugs.
AMD GPU miners had been not too long ago getting very the increase thanks to Claymore’s Zcash miner on Windows, but now Windows consumers with Nvidia GPUs also received a great boost in ZEC mining functionality thanks to the release of the NiceHash EQM Zcash Nvidia Optimized Miner. It variety of doubles the performance that individuals had been obtaining with the previous nheqminer from Nicehash, so now with a 6x GTX 1070 GPUs for instance you can be all the way up to about 400 H/s. Do note that the miner presently supports only newer Nvidia GPUs and will apparently not perform on something reduced than SM 5. capable GPUs – Maxwell or Pascal.
The only disadvantage is that the miner at present only supports connection to NiceHash, so you can’t use it with other pools. While this might nit be undesirable throughout the slow begin of ZEC mining, right after that you might nonetheless want to go for mining and retaining Zcash rather of immediately offering it for profit. Hopefully in the subsequent couple of weeks we are also going to see much more development taking place for Nvidia users and that goes not only for Linux, but for Windows users as nicely.
Linux users would almost certainly want to go and attempt the latest version of the Silentarmy miner that also brought assistance for Nvidia GPUs and is apparently delivering equivalent performance as the NiceHash release for Windows. Also the Silentarmy miner is performing rather nicely on AMD hardware, so do consider it as effectively if you have this kind of mining rigs and are running them on Linux.
