[FIXED] Cudo Miner Not Using GPU

Learn how you can fix Cudo Miner if it's not detecting GPU by tweaking some app settings and more.

Expert Verified By

Cudo Miner lets you mine cryptocurrency using the computer’s GPU. However, there may be times when Cudo Miner is not using GPU, which can negatively impact mining. But, before you fix the Cudo Miner app not using the GPU in your system, check the list of supported hardware to verify your graphics card’s compatibility with the app. 

Key Takeaways
  • Cudo Miner may not use the installed GPU if the display drivers are outdated, overclocking is disabled, or the computer has multiple installed GPUs. 
  • You can resolve the error by upgrading to the latest version of the app and allowing third-party miners from the app’s settings.
  • Remember that your GPU should be legible for mining, have at least 4GB of memory, and be supported by Cudo Miner.

Install The Latest Version Of Cudo Miner

If you are using an older version of Cudo Miner, it is possible that the app is not detecting your GPU due to some bug or glitch. It has also been mentioned on Bitcointalk’s forum that the developers have fixed bugs related to GPU in the 0.21.8 version of the app.

So, to counter this issue, delete the application from your computer, download its latest version from Cudo Miner’s official website, and sign in with your credentials.

Allow Third-Party Miners

Cudo Miner may need you to turn on third-party miners to detect and use the installed GPU on your computer. You can switch it on from the “Settings” page in the app. This solution has worked for many users and has also been mentioned on the Cudo Miner website. All you have to do is launch the app, go to settings, and toggle the “Enable third-party miners” to ON.

WARNING: Don’t change anything else in the settings if you are not aware of its effects, as doing so may create further complications in the mining process.

Final Words

The fixes will hopefully allow Cudo Miner to detect and use the GPU in your PC for mining. Another thing I would like to add is to ensure your graphics card has at least 4GB of memory so the software can use it for effective mining.

You also need to keep checking the list of supported GPUs, as previous app updates have caused some GPUs to no longer be compatible with the app. In that case, you must switch to another app or upgrade your GPU.
