Get Your AMD RX VEGA 56/64 GPUs Ready for Mining CryptoNightV7

22 Mar

There are just a few days left until the fork of Monero (XMR) to CryptoNightV7 to make it again ASIC resistant and you might want to be ready for mining it after the fork, especialyl if you have ADM RX VEGA GPUs. So far the latest Claymore’s CryptoNote AMD GPU Miner does not yet have support for CryptoNightV7, but for VEGA GPUs you probably are using XMR-stak (also not ready) or Cast-XMR or the more recently announced Xrig. The last two have already been updated and their latest versions do come with support for CryptoNightV7, so you should update to Xrig 0.8.1 and Cast XMR 0.9.1 in order to be sure you are ready for the fork. Although these miners are optimized especially for VEGA mining, they should work on other AMD RX series of GPUs like 470/480 and 570/580 for example, so until a Claymore adds CryptoNightV7 support you can try using these miners as well. After Monero forks to the new CryptoNightV7 POW other coins are also expected to do the same and remain to be ASIC proof. The upcoming Monero (XMR) fork to CryptoNight v7 is scheduled for block 1546000 which should happen some time around 2018-04-06 (April 4th), so less than 2 weeks left until the fork.
