  • Fixed small memory leak on Nvidia DAG change.
  • Some additional Ethash 3GB Nvidia cards optimizations - it is now possible to mine Ethereum on Windows 10 with half hashrate on full speed x16 PCI-e.

Update: some users have troubles mining Ethereum with nanominer on Windows 7 and Windows 8. If you see "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" messages and miner restarts with "unknown error" in log please increase Windows Timeout Detection and Recovery (TDR) delay from default value of two seconds to at least 20 seconds. You can make it running attached set_tdr_delay_20.reg file and reboot.

  • Extended Ethash support on Nvidia 3 GB cards. We are now the only one known miner that can support epochs 241 and 242 (best on Linux) with full speed. Next epochs will work too but performance degradation is possible. To make performance better you can try using full-speed PCI-e connections for 3 GB devices.
  • Fixed some issues with miner reconnection to pools.
  • Fixed floating bug with enormous reported hashrate on AMD Ethash.

  • DAG generation time decreased for epochs 235-240 on 3GB GPUs from 4-20 minutes down to about ten seconds. We have best DAG generation time on Nvidia compared to other Ethash miners.
  • Improved CryptoNight v8 performance on Kepler and Maxwell archs. We are now 10%-38% better on those archs than tuned XMR-stak. Tested on GTX 970 and GTX750ti.

Improved 3GB Nvidia GPUs support!
Ethash epochs till 241 are supported now on 3 GB GPUs systems which have at least 3017 MB free - tested with Linux system and Xorg consuming 2 MBs. DAG file generation is slower for epochs 235-240. About 4 minutes on x16 PCI-e or 20 minutes on x1 PCI-e. Epochs before 235 are mined on 3 GB cards as usual.
What we have now means it is possible to run Ethereum Classic which is on epoch 239 right now. We've checked - and yes, It works. Will work for current epoch and the next one until 2 January so you have a chance to mine Ethereum Classic on 3 GB Nvidia GPU in 2019. You can even do make this with PascalCoin in dual like in 2017.
All other miners don't support such experimental feature so looks like nanominer is now the last hope for 3 GB cards mining Eths. Current release will work until epoch 241. Current Ethereum epoch is 231. Epoch 241 will start approximately at 8th of February.

In short: our miner is the only known Ethereum miner for 3 GB Nvidia cards that will work till 8th of February.

  • Ubqhash algorithm was added.
  • Huge RandomHash performance improvement, up to 80% better than FinMiner.
  • Support several algorithms on same process with single config. This includes dual mining PascalCoin with Ethash, CryptoNight or Ubqhash without performance drops. This make nanominer the most profitable Ethash miner at the moment.
  • RandomHash commission is now 5% for mining RandomHash only and 3% in case at least one of GPU algorithms is running in parallel. All other commissions are 1%.
  • New BoringAPI implemented for rigs monitoring. This includes some complex cases of several algorithms running in parallel.
