    There is a new update for Claymore’s ethereum dual miner, now at v9.7.  Check out the thread here.  Main points are incorporation of recent nvidia speedup for certain cards (mostly 1060) and ASM integration for RX460 GPU’s, which results in much faster mining for SIA/Decred/Pascal.

– Added ASM mode for RX460/560 cards, up to 30% speedup for second coin in dual mode.
– Improved ETH speed for some Nvidia cards.
– Improved speed in dual mode for Nvidia cards.
– reduced initialization time.
– a few minor bug fixes and improvements.
– EthMan: added ability to select several rigs.
– EthMan: several minor bug fixes and improvements.

 

Excavator v1.2.5 Alpha


    Nicehash has released a new alpha version of Excavator, and it is much improved.  You can mine ETH at pretty much the same speeds as Claymore, and other algos are optimized as well.  For example it seems to be the fastest miner for LBRY on Nvidia.  It is tricky to get started for new users though, so read the documentation carefully and use the provided .bat file.  You only need to modify the .json file with your pool and information.  Download it here, and read up on the bitcointalk thread here !
