If anyone owns a NVIDIA PASCAL GPU e.g. GTX1060 with 6GB RAM, please try to use the full memory for mining. Kepler and Maxwell GPUs have problems with more than 2GB RAM usage, I hope that this is fixed with the Pascal generation. Please post your hash rates even if they looks not so good.
**xmrMiner** a new high optimized NVIDIA GPU miner
there is a new optimized NVIDIA GPU miner xmrMiner available. xmrMiner is a fork of KlausT's ccminer version. ccminer is developed by Christian Buchner's & Christian H.'s and modified by tsiv for Cryptonight mining.
xmrMiner achieves on a NVIDIA Tesla K20 26% more hash/s than ccminer.
|gpu||launch param||xmrMiner [hash/s]||KlausT ccminer [hash/s]||speedup [%]||clock [MHz]||watt|
|K80* Amazon AWS||24x39||469||399||25||875||128|
|GTX TITAN X||16x48||633||579||9||1151||132|
* used one of two GPU sockets
Please test xmrMiner and post you feedback on reddit or in this forum. If your GPU is not listed on this benchmark side or you achieve a higher hash rate than currently posted please add your results there.
If you found any bugs please open an issu on github.
Tetsted it for several days with standard settings and low cost cards, can try also with Ref Clock and other settings. Playing with max Memory/bxt slowed them down to 50 to 60Hs.

@psychocrypt thanks for this, I had just installed ccminer and after installing yours I see the performance lift as per your table.
I'm running 8x K80 so I used the 24x39, but in your table it says this is best for when only one of two sockets are being used....how do I check what is my config, and what is the optimal parameters if both sockets are being used?
I'm running Windows 2016 server FYI, thanks again!
Each socket of the k80 is visible as a independent gpu. If you specified the launch paramter the value is passed to all gpus. The configuration for each gpu is printed during the start of the miner. xmrMiner supports up to 8 gpus which means 4 x k80. If your system contains 8xk80 which means under linux nvidia smi shows 16 gpus than please contact me again and I can explain how you are able to use all 16 visible gpus.
