If you are looking for a miner for Ravencoin (RVN) and its X16r algorithm or Pigeoncoin (PGN) and its X16S algorithm for AMD GPUs, then you might want to check out this new sgminer fork by brianmct (source). There are pre-compiled binaries available for both Windows and Linux, so you should be covered for the two operating systems, if using Linux make sure you have the required dependencies installed. Unfortunately this may not be the best performing X16r and X16S hashrate wise as our initial tests show, but at least it works and you have a working miner for X16S for AMD until a faster solution that works becomes available. There are more forks of sgminer that are trying to implement X16S support, but apparently there are some trouble making them work. A faster performing X16r AMD GPU miner that we have already posted about is available here, but it does not have support for X16S.

At the moment Nvidia GPU miners have the advantage for mining X11-Gost with a faster hashrate for the more recent Maxwell and Pascal GPUs than AMD miners. Still AMD miners might be interested in checking out the X11-Gost algorithm used by SIBCoin (SIB) as it is not that power hungry and with the increased interest with the recent addition of the algorithm on NiceHash as it might offer a nice profitability for users willing to sell their hashrate and get paid in Bitcoins directly.

So if you are using AMD GPU mining rigs you might want to check out X11-Gost on NiceHash using the latest sgminer 5.6.0 Nicehash Fork (source). We are seeing a hasrate of between 7 MH/s and 8 MH/s on stock Radeon RX 480 and while still slower than about 11 MH/s on a stock Nvidia GTX 1070 the fact that the algorithm is not that power demanding and you can use lower power for the GPUs may make it attractive for some users, so do give it a try. Older generation of AMD GPUs may not be the best choice for this algorithm performance wise and the same pretty much goes for older Nvidia GPUs, but for AMD Polaris and Nvidia Maxwell and Pascal it is.

Another PascalCoin (PASC) pool, one brought by Suprnova, seems to be now open for beta testing, though apparently not fully functional. The new pool brings much better support and functionality as compared to the first available pool from Nanopool, so you might want to check it out. The PASC Suprnova pool offers Stratum support and comes with the familiar sgminer with support for mining PascalCoin on both AMD and Nvidia GPUs, though apparently a version of ccMiner will also soon be available for Nvidia miners… there is also a Windows and Linux miner available.

The pool has not yet found its first block and the payment part does not seem to be fully functional yet, but you can still try the miner and point some hashrate to help in testing things out. The pool fee is 1% and you should be able to do manual payout and not have a minimum payout limit, also stats is working much better and reported hashrate is quite accurate on miner/poolside, the stratum support also should ensure better efficiency. We have given a try of the Windows miner and have noticed it does tend to have a pretty high CPU and memory usage, but it does still seem to work well.

Here is a 64-bit Windows binary of the sgminer fork with PascalCoin support for the pool…
