I saw it on the Tenebrix thread, but didn't find windows binaries.
I'm mining Litecoin of course, I assume the same miner works for both.

If I need to configure it somehow, can someone please explain how?

Use twobits-pack.

It has 64 bit optimizations (kinky-cool ones, ask twobits for details)

Geist Geld, the experimental cryptocurrency, is ready for yet another SolidCoin collapse Wink

What about Intel and 64 bit Linux !?

They are win32 binaries, but they do use have some of the 64 bit instructions in use internally.  So some 64 bit math but no 64 bit pointers.

My 64bit machine is telling me your minerd is running 32bit Sad (still faster though thank default minerd)

can't wait for true 64bit! I may be willing to bounty some BTC to someone to expedite this coding...

Yep, it will since it is not using 64 bit pointers.  I am wonder which would win out, the 64 bit cleaner calling conventions, or the overhead of 64 bit pointers when they are not needed.   It is possible the full 64 bit version could be slower due to that.   You are taking advantage of your 64 bit cpu at least with those binaries.

I started to build a 64 bit dev environment for windows... took forever to just to compile about 1/2 the libraries and such though and when I am compiling I get no mining done, lol.   I will probably get back to that eventually though to at least benchmark the pure build against the hybrid.

if a 64bit vps will help you, I am willing to let you borrow one of mine for this...if you'd like Smiley I'll take the mining hit for you Smiley

Thanks a lot, I'm seeing about 15% more hashing with the i7 binary.

Thanks, but probably not.  Some of the needed libraries don't work yet under mingw 64.   Currently stuck on the threads library.  One from 2006 does not work at all it seems, and another newer one I have, seems to need header files that don't come with the mingw stuff.
