The latest version 0.9.2 of the CryptoDredge Nvidia GPU miner for both Linux and Windows comes with a new algorithm supported as well as some performance improvements and fixes. The new algorithm getting added is CryptoNightSaber used by BitTube, Allium and Phi2 get performance improvements for GTX 1070, 1070 Ti, 1080 and 1080 Ti GPUs. The list of new features and improvements include the ability to set intensity per GPU, a fixed failover mechanism, disable miner to auto-start after system restart and added crash reporting mechanism. Our usual reminder that the CryptoDredge miner is a closed source software that comes with 1% built-in developer fee with binaries available for both Windows and Linux (CUDA 9.1/9.2).

Another update for the z-enemy 1.21 Nvidia GPU miner that apparently focuses on adding some not so significant performance and stability improvements, as well as fixing some bugs. The lest new feature is an uptime reporting, so you know how long your mining rigs have been running without problems with the z-enemy miner. It is recommended to update to the latest release if you are currently mining using an older version in order to get the optimal performance and stability.

The latest z-enemy version 1.21 is available for CUDA 9.1 and 9.2 for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows versions as well as CUDA 9.0, CUDA 9.1 an CUDA 9.2 binaries for Linux (HiveOS, PiMP OS, EthOS & Ubuntu), the 32-bit version does seem to be faster in some of the algorithms. Do note that for maximum performance it is recommended to have the latest drivers installed (ver. 398+). We remind you that z-enemy is a closed source miner available only as a binary release and it contains a 1% developer fee built-in to support further software development.

Bitmain has finally announced their next generation of ASIC chips that are based on 7nm Finfet technology called BM1391 for the SHA256 algorithm, these chips will power the next generation of Bitcoin ASIC miners coming from the company. The new BM1391 chips integrate more than a billion transistors and are optimized for maximum efficiency according to the company and can achieve a ratio of energy consumption to the mining capacity that is as low as 42 J/TH. Bitmain was dominating the Bitcoin mining market with their Antminer S9 in terms of hashrate and units shipped, but they started losing in terms of performance and efficiency lately due to the fact that the competition was adopting new production technologies and making further optimizations to get higher hashrates. We’ll see if Bitmain will be able to get back in the game with their next generation ASIC miners using the new chips…
