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.

Claymore has released yet another update for his ZCash AMD GPU Miner that brings some more extra performance boost for mining Cash (ZEC), however the latest v12.0 of the miner does come some new specifics. The latest version v12.0 comes with improved speeds: about 405 H/s on stock 390X, 450 H/s on stock Nano, 290 H/s on stock 280X, 295 H/s on stock RX480. It however has issues working with higher intensity on older GPUs with less VRAM such as 280X where the intensity may need to be lowered. Also on mining rigs with 6x GPUs where you may have just 4GB of system memory you may observe trouble running the miner properly on all 6 cards at maximum performance unless you have set at least 20GB SWAP file. Lowering the intensity manually may help, but it is much eaŃ€ier to just increase the amount of space allocated for the swap file…
