Ocminer, the admin of the Suprnova mining pools, has been pretty actively maintaining and further improving his supminer fork of ccminer (source) adding numerous performance improvements for the X16r and X16S mining algorithms. So if you are mining either Ravencoin (RVN) that uses the X16r algorithm or Pigeoncoin (PGN) that uses the X16S algorithm you might want to try the supminer or update it if you already use an older version than the latest 1.5. In the last two days there were numerous performance updates regarding various algorithms that are a part of the X16r and X16S, so supminer could as well be the fastest miner for RVN and PGN at the moment. The miner is free and open-source with a 32-bit Windows binary release also available compiled for CUDA 9.1 (require R390 or newer Nvidia video drivers).

Another open-source fork of ccMiner called supminer (source) is now available, an optimized version from the operator of the Suprnova mining pools that promises up to 10% better performance than the recently released nevermore ccminer fork. The supminer ccMiner fork comes with with no developer fee, but you can show your support by mining Ravencoin (RVN) on Suprnova’s RVNCoin Pool. There is an official 32-bit Windows binary release available compiled with CUDA 9.1, so make sure you have up to date video drivers on your mining rigs. The code is compatible with Linux as well, though you will need to compile it yourself (make sure you have CUDA 9.1 installed to compile from source).

In theory the supminer should be faster than the other available ccminer forks with X16r support, but you should test and compare the different releases and see what works and performs best on your hardware. Feel free to report hashrates and stability on your mining rigs and how supminer compares to the nevermore and enemy miners. When comparing hashrates make sure you compare on the same algorithm, because hashrate varies depending on the currently switched to algorithm. Do note that the performance optimizations should not work only on the X16r algorithm, but should also help improve performance on other chained algorithms supported by ccminer.

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.
