Things are moving for the X16R algorithm used by Ravencoin (RVN) as well in terms of more and better miners for AMD GPUs as well as there are already quite a few options available for NVidia miners. There is now a new faster sgminer fork from KL0nLutiy (source) that is based on the recently released Avermore miner that promises 4-6% or even a bit more performance. The optimizations seems to be result from adding some optimized kernels from Wolf and they do seem to boost performance well, so if mining X16R on AMD definitely worth trying this miner. There is already an official Windows binary available with 1% developer fee with Linux binary expected to be made available soon, though you can compile from source as well.

The new zealot/enemy (z-enemy) Nvidia GPU miner for mining Ravencoin (RVN) X16r has been just updated to version 1.08 bringing some nice improvements. The new z-enemy version 1.08 comes with kernels speed improvements for GTX 1080 Ti that can bump the hashrate with +10% total according to the developer, the new version also comes with support for the slightly different X16S algorithm used by Pigeoncoin (PGN) along with some minor fixes. The update also introduces support for two more different algorithms – Bitcore (BTX) and Phi1612 used by LUXCoin, so you can test them as well as they might be faster than the miner you might be already using for them as well. The new release should also be more stable when it comes to huger power levels and overclocking as well, so you might also try to push your Nvidia GPUs a bit more to see if they will handle it.

The z-enemy-1.08 requires CUDA 9.0 support, so make sure you have up to date Nvidia video drivers that bring support for it. We are also reminding you that the z-enemy is a closed source miner available only as a binary release (Windows binary for the new version 1.08 for the moment) and the miner also has a 1% built-in developer fee in order to support the further development. If you are not Ok with that, there are a host of other open source alternatives available as Nvidia GPU miners for X16 and X16S that you might use, though with the latest update the z-enemy-1.08 should be the fastest for sure, so you might want to give it a try… we are already seeing a nice improvement on GTX 1080 Ti over the old 1.05a version, though the old version might be doing better on GTX 1080.

Avermore is a new sgminer fork intended for AMD GPU miners mining the X16r or X16S algorithms used by Ravencoin (RVN) and Pigeoncoin (PGN) respectively (source). The miner is from the same developer of the NeverMore miner for Nvidia GPUs for these two algorithms. The miner is open source and could be the fastest one for AMD GPUs for X16r and X16s for the moment (the latest version also adds limited support for the Xevan algorithm). There are Windows and Linux binaries also officially available though they apparently comes with a 1% developer fee built-in to support the further development of the miner. So if you are interested in mining Ravencoin (RVN) X16r or Pigeoncoin (PGN) X16s on AMD GPU mining rigs, then you might want to give this new miner a try.
