About Dual Mining of ZIL
With the addition of ZIL, when mining ETC, ETC+ZIL, the mining process is not like what people usually understand as "dual mining" or even "triple mining". Unlike other coins that are share-based, ZIL mining is round-based.
This also means that most of the time the miner only needs to mine ETC and switches to mine ZIL about every 15 hours. When the graphics card switches to ZIL mining for about 1-2 minutes, it will switch to ETC mining again.
