An effective miner for mining cryptocurrencies. CGMiner uses the Noscript algorithm.
This allows you to increase the profitability of mining by generating an excellent hashrate.
Advantages of CGMiner
- Free and open source software;
- We do not require a commission for using the software;
- A huge number of parameters for settings for any equipment;
- Productive mining with the right settings;
- Overclocking the cores of the video card and regulating the operation of coolers.
Best of all, as practice has shown, CGMiner runs on Windows 7 64 bit. On Windows 10 or 8, performance is lower, on average, by 3-5% (depending on the encryption used). The program allows you to mine cryptocurrency simultaneously on 8 workers (that is, 8 video cards per base station). It is worth noting that the application does not work under 32-bit operating systems (due to low system performance and a limit of 2 gigabytes of RAM). And experienced manners claim that the so-called Cgminer is better suited for Radeon graphics cards than Nvidia. Their approximate performance according to the Script algorithm is as follows:
|Video Card||Performance (kh/s)|
CGMiner is more optimized for Scrypt, with its help it is best to mine Litecoin. Only since version 3.7.2.support for the more popular SHA-256 algorithm has been added. It is important to note that Cgminer divides multi-chip video cards into 2 workers (in the case of 2 processors). Accordingly, when using such devices, the maximum limit is up to 4 adapters per station.
