GPU Program for Linux or Windows

Post by pupster » Sun Jan 07, 2018 5:19 am

I've been trying to find a program to run GPU mining for Litecoin on Linux and having a hard time finding anything. I can also use Windows as a second choice. What is everyone using? Any suggestion on that would be greatly appreciated. :?:

i don't recommend gpu mining scrypt, but back in the day cgminer 3.7.2 worked pretty good for AMD cards. and ccminer for nvidia cards

@spauk
Thanks for you reply. I was trying go use 2, or more Radeon RX580 GPU to mine Litecoin. So what most people use?

ccminer, multiminer, awesome miner, etc; there are tons of them out there and i agree the asic proof algos are paying much better for gpus. you just need to find what you have the bet luck with.

@greaseman316
Any idea how I can set asic proof algos? Or send me some info how to set it up, or how to start, as I'm a newbie in this? Thanks,

I hate to say i cant help you a lot in that department as of right now since its been a long time since i did any gpu/cpu stuff. But if you go over to bitcointalk.org there are thousands of posts and links to pools concerning GPU/CPU stuff.

If my idiot friend can set his up and i am sure you got more smarts than him it should be pretty easy.

some time ago I mined Feathercoin (FTC) with GPU.
It uses the Neoscrypt algo.

GPU mining scrypt or X11 isn't efficient mining, as for the money spent, a single ASIC device will outperform it and give MUCH better results.
GPU mining rigs are best used for coins that cannot be ASIC mined, like Ethereum and others. If you are hellbent on building and operating a GPU rig with multiple GPU's, focus your efforts on those currencies.
This pool is a Scrypt or X11 pool, and most users use ASIC devices here.
I am a noob miner. Zeusminer Hurricane X3 and a Gridseed G-Blade Hashing around 18-20Mhs on Ubuntu Cgminer 4.3.5.

SO... Niteshade, thanks for your comments... As a completely GREEN (but long time BTC hodler) potential miner, I gather that I'm in the wrong pool if I want to mine some altcoins with only a GPU, am I understanding you correctly?

i can recommend some other pools but i feel like i'm betraying prohashing. but it really doesn't matter because they don't support gpu mining anymore really. nicehash, minergate, givemecoins all decent pools for gpu/cpu mining
also coinpot for cpu mining into a few different cryptos, i think they do monero mining and it gets auto traded towards what you want out of btc, bch, ltc, dash, doge
