WinEth supports GPU based Ethereum mining using AMD and Nvidia video cards.  These cards must have a minimum of 3GB of video memory, with 4GB or greater being preferred.

If your hardware is unable to mine Ethereum you should consider Monero mining with our new WinXMR miner.

If WinEth cannot detect a video card meeting its requirements you will receive the following error:

This miner requires a modern Nvidia or AMD GPU and none was detected.

If you believe your card should be working the first thing to do is install updated drivers manually.

For Nvidia go here and select your card to download the latest:

For AMD Radeon, install the Crimson blockchain drivers for best performance:
