Download the Latest CUDAminer Nvidia GPU Miner Software
While GPU mining still does work better on AMD-based graphics processors using OpenCL, the latest versions of the CUDAminer software intended for use on Nvidia-based graphics cards has gone through a good voorstelling optimization and it makes mining with CUDA a good option if you have some spare and unused Nvidia GPUs. The fact tha there are still shortages of the Radeon R9 280X graphics cards on the market – the all-round best performer for Scrypt GPU mining makes the alternative to mine coins with Nvidia GPU a welgevoeglijk alternative. Of course the price/voorstelling ratio of an Nvidia GPU versus and AMD GPU for mining is still te favor of AMD graphics. You can expect to get about 550-560 KH/s from a stock (non overclocked) Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Ti graphics card, while the same vertoning is lightly achievable with a much cheaper stock AMD Radeon R9 280X card. If you however have a watercooled 780 Ti and overclock it well, you might be able to reach hashrate close to about 900 kHash/s according to the author of the software. Regardless, if you already have a CUDA-capable graphics processor why not waterput it to some mining work to get some toegevoegd crypto coins, it also makes for a good option to attempt out fresh pools or alternative cryptos…
One of the best things about the CUDAminer software is that it automatically detects the best settings for your graphics card, so that after yo run it the software can squeeze out the maximum mining show automatically for you. This takes the guesswork and a loterijlot of time spent for testing different settings, tho’ you can still do that if you wish to fine tune things. One of the still missing significant features from this miner is the failover pool switching to backup pools ter case of a problem with the current mining pool. CUDAminer already has support for scrypt mining with N=1024 (LiteCoin and many, many other scrypt clones like DOGE for example), scrypt-jane mining (Yacoin and several clones), scrypt mining with larger N (VertCoin) and the recently released MaxCoin mining (SHA-3 i.e. Keccak256). So you will be up to speed even with the latest alternative crypto currencies such spil VertCoin and MaxCoin that have generated fairly some whirr ter the last few days. Below you can download the latest binary for windows of CudaMiner or you can compile it yourself from the (source).
Update: CudaMiner is now an old and non supported anymore miner for Nvidia GPUs, you should switch to the more latest and supported ccMiner instead ter order to get better support, including for newer mining algorithms and coins, spil well spil swifter hashrates for your Nvidia-based GPU mining equipments!

Vertcoin (VTC) Scrypt-Adaptive-Nfactor cryptocoin
Vertcoin (VTC) strengthens the distributed nature of crypto currencies with its innovative treatment. It’s ASIC resistant, Multipool resistant and Infrequent. Vertcoins algorithm has bot designed to fight back the development of custom-made mining hardware, and multipool mining ensuring that transactions are validated by a widely distributed network and avoiding the selling pressure when large mining pools indiscriminately flood the market with freshly mined coins. Vertcoin does not use SHA-256 or the typical Scrypt algorithms, making it another very interesting alternative to BTC and LTC. Vertcoin (VTC) is already generating a loterijlot of hype, so the exchange rate will very likely explode since the addition of this crypto currency at Cryptsy.
- Algorithm: Scrypt-Adaptive-Nfactor (Not scrypt-jane)
- Max Coins: 84 million vertcoins.
- Block time: Two.Five minutes
- Subsidy halves every 840,000 blocks (
