[ANN] cudaMiner & ccMiner CUDA based mining applications [Windows/Linux/MacOSX]

#1
Here's my new pet project. I started this during the easter holidays in 2013 and this uses CUDA to squeeze up to 200% more performance out of nVidia cards - as compared to OpenCL mining applications. [​IMG] ccMiner is a collaborative project by me and a co author also named Christian (call us the C&C Hash Factory, if you will). ccMiner is less polished, but often features new coins+algorithms close to launch date (usually with a clear mining advantage for nVidia).

More information can be found on our dedicated nVidia mining forum http://www.cudaminers.net/

cudaMiner Algorithms:
scrypt
scrypt-jane
scrypt-N
keccak
blake (github version only)

Installation requirements:
- a recent nVidia driver supporting at least CUDA 5.5
- Visual Studio 2010 SP1 redistributable (redist). Install when MSVCR100.DLL is not found.

MAC-OS X compiled binaries are found here: http://www.johnchapman.net/cudaminer/ (a third party site maintained by John Chapman)

ccMiner Algorithms:
HeavyCoin
MjollnirCoin
Fugue
Groestl
Myriad-Groestl
Diamond-Groestl
JackpotCoin
Quark
AnimeCoin
TalkCoin
X11/DarkCoin
X13/MaruCoin

ccMiner latest releases:

Have a look at the Google Docs Spreadsheet for configuration and performance data. Please enter new data using this form. We now also have a spreadsheet for scrypt-jane, e.g. Yacoin and the corresponding Data Entry Form. Performance data for scrypt-jane is preliminary, as the feature is under development!
Here is another (somewhat outdated and chaotic) Google Docs spreadsheet with some performance figures and associated configuration settings.

Please carefully inspect the README.txt file before use. Usage is pretty much identical to pooler's cpuminer



Required dependencies for building on Windows:
pthreads: http://sourceware.org/pthreads-win32/
OpenSSL-Win32: http://slproweb.com/download/Win32OpenSSL-1_0_1e.exe
curl-7.29.0: http://curl.haxx.se/download/curl-7.29.0.zip
or in precompiled form for Visual Studio 2010 SP1 cudaminer_vc2010_prerequisites.7z (49.3 MB)

Linux compilation is also possible now:
chmod +x configure autogen.sh (.zip does not preserve the x bit)
./autogen.sh && ./configure && make

Better grab the sourcecode from github, as the .zip file contains has Windows style line endings in all ASCII files which you would have to convert first.
