NVIDIA: Do I need the CUDA 8.0 drivers?


#1

Hi all. I'm using a GTX 1070 with NiceHashEQ miner v0.2. I've seen some people posting about getting faster speeds after downloading CUDA dll's or drivers (or both...not really sure). I have the latest set of drivers automatically updated for my card and I'm getting decent hashrates with my CPU around 32-34 sol/s. Would I benefit from obtaining these CUDA 8 files?

Thanks.

No, using V0.3a will get you around 5h/s faster results but it only works on the Nicehash pool.
