New T-Rex 0.14.4 Nvidia Miner With Support for the X16Rv2 Algorithm

26 Sep
2019

The latest T-Rex Nvidia GPU miner version 0.14.4 has also introduced support for the new X16Rv2 algorithm, just like the z-enemy 2.2 miner did (the algo that Ravencoin is forking to starting next month). Although the z-enemy miner was technically first with an official release, there was unofficial beta of t-rex 0.14.2 made available by the PEXA project a few days earlier with X16Rv2 support. Do note that you can already test X16Rv2 mining with PEXA Coin on mainnet and not only on pools that have implemented RVN testnet mining with the new X16Rv2 algorightm.

Performance wise it does seem that the T-Rex 0.14.4 miner offers similar or slightly faster hashrate compared to Z-Enemy 2.2 in most algorithm combinations on GTX 1080 Ti after a quick test, though it is best that you compare on your own mining hardware. Also T-Rex has implemented a new command line parameter that enables the miner to automatically switch to a new algorithm at user set fork time (example for RVN: --fork-at x16rv2=2019-10-01T16:00:00). Do note that the T-Rex is a closed source miner software with 1% development fee built-in. Also make sure you have a recent video driver installed (the latest for CUDA 10+ support) as the binaries for both Linux and Windows are available in versions compiled for CUDA 9.1/9.2/10.0.
