Claymore has released an update to his popular Ethereum dual miner for AMD and Nvidia GPUs with some new interesting and useful features as well as some small improvements. The new version 11 comes with two new algorithms that can be used in dual mining mode along with Ethereum or any other Ethash-based coin, these are Blake2s and Keccak. Another importan change is the reduced developer fee for dual mode that is now at 1.5% and the removal of the dev fee completely for video cards with just 2GB of video memory (you cannot mine ETH/ETC with these anymore, but the miner will work with other forks). The “-asm 2” option value now supports Tahiti, Tonga, Ellesmere, Baffin AMD GPUs and in some cases it can be a bit faster in ETH-only mode, so you can give it a try if you have a mining rig with any of these.

Claymore has updated his Monero miner for AMD GPUs to bring it more up to date in terms of features and performance due to the increased interest and profitability in mining XMR lately. The latest version uses the latest framework which is used by his Ethereum dual miner and ZCash miners, so people familiar with the other miners should have no trouble using this one as well. There are some new options available and a lot of miner improvements in the new version, new assembler GPU kernels are being used for improved performance though it also comes with a requirement for more memory. The latest version also comes with a reduced devfee, it’s 1% now if you use secure SSL/TLS connection, or 1.5% for unsecure connection to mining pools.

Alternatively for similar higher performance you can also use the latest sgminer with support for Monero (XMR) mining or the latest XMR-Stak AMD miner with two GPU threads, but for these also make sure you have set the virtual memory to a high value in order to not have trouble with multi-GPU systems. The extra increased performance can make mining Monero (XMR) more profitable than mining Ethereum (ETH) for example on the same AMD GPUs you have in your mining rigs, thus the increased interest in mining XMR.

Claymore has updated his ZCash AMD GPU miner to version 12.5 adding support for the ZCash forks (altcoins using the same Equihash algorithm) as well as doing some more improvements to the miner. The latest version comes with improved fans management for latest drivers and Polaris cards, added shares-per-GPU statistics when “s” key is pressed, addend an option to use a password for remote monitoring as well as included EthMan v3.0 which supports passwords and email notifications. This is currently the preferred solution by most miners mining ZEC or other coins based on the Equihash algorithm for AMD OpenCL GPU mining rigs, the miner does not yet have support for Nvidia GPUs. Nvidia miners can go for some of the available options for CUDA mining such as the nheqminer, excavator or EWBF’s CUDA Zcash miner for mining coins using the Equihash algorithm on their hardware.
