Each of the 4 miner software programs were assigned to a GPU in the system. Every 2 hours this assignment was changed. Starting at 04:00 the assignment was:
At 06:00 the miners were stopped and restarted with a new assignment of:
At 08:00 the miners were stopped and restarted with a new assignment of:
At 10:00 the miners were stopped and restarted with a new assignment of:
And finally at 12:00 the miners were restarted with their original assignment and the loop continued as described above. In this way, after 24 hours, each miner had mined for an equal amount of time on each GPU in the system.
kawpowminer performed the best in this test.
All four miners were very close to each other in performance, with only a 2.13% difference between the best and worst. This mining algo probably does not have many opportunities for software optimization, so the individual person will not see substantial differences between the software options and should select the miner that they find works best for their individual environments. In the future, miner software developers may consider competing by focusing on reliability and features rather than speed improvements.
