GitHub: Download MiniZ v1.6w

miniZ is a fast and friendly Equihash <144,5> BeamHash III <150,5,3> <125,4> <192,7> <210,9> <150,5> <96,5> Cuda miner.

  * Supports mining all Equihash <144,5> (BTG, BTCZ, XSG, LTZ, BZE), <150,5> (GRIMM), BeamHash III, <150,5,3> (Beam), <192,7> (ZER, SAFE, GENX, VDL, ZERC, ANON), <125,4> (ZEL), <210,9> (AION) and <96,5> (MNX) cryptocurrencies.
  * miniZ is compiled for Linux and Windows.
  * Requires minimum 2GB GPUs. Ex. GTX 1050 2GB.
  * Cool console output and telemetry monitoring.
  * Supports most mining pools.
  * Developer fee is set to 2%.

In version – miniZ v1.5u – we have stopped Cuda 8 support. If you use older miniZ versions: for Turing architectures (16xx series and RTX) you need to use Cuda 10.0 versions.

miniZ v1.6w
 * 150,5 major improvements: 2-20%, depending on GPU. Turing GPUs have the largest improvements.
 * Added ocX table to telemetry. Current mode shows in blue, the best mode in red.
 * ocX best mode can be saved to configuration file. (See FAQ)
 * In console, ocX log is more clearly shown.
 * Added comand line options: ocXreset – reset stats when finishes ocX; ocXsamples increase/decrease samples in ocX search (default 300).
 * You can already write for ex. –mode1=5 to select a mode to specific GPU (before you could not use ‘=’).

When adjusting your GPUs OC settings do not forget to check if your GPU supports oc1/oc2. It may boost your performance a little.
 –oc1/oc2 may have changed for some GPUs and algos in the new version.

From miniZ v1.5u –ocX option can be used in all algorithms, for automatic tunning of the best kernel for your GPU.
