Sgminer fork With Support for X16r and X16S for AMD GPU Miners

29 Mar

If you are looking for a miner for Ravencoin (RVN) and its X16r algorithm or Pigeoncoin (PGN) and its X16S algorithm for AMD GPUs, then you might want to check out this new sgminer fork by brianmct (source). There are pre-compiled binaries available for both Windows and Linux, so you should be covered for the two operating systems, if using Linux make sure you have the required dependencies installed. Unfortunately this may not be the best performing X16r and X16S hashrate wise as our initial tests show, but at least it works and you have a working miner for X16S for AMD until a faster solution that works becomes available. There are more forks of sgminer that are trying to implement X16S support, but apparently there are some trouble making them work. A faster performing X16r AMD GPU miner that we have already posted about is available here, but it does not have support for X16S.

Hi! Can you please helt to understand the profitability of both the x16- S and R algos
I only have 3 rigs with 5 AMD 380 each
With 1 rig I am getting about 7,5 MHs

Hi, thank you for the post. What are the cards used in the screenshot ? and their clock/Core voltage please ? I am trying to optimise rx480 and rx 580 cards, but ETh settings giving too low hash with x16r.
I am getting 3-4 mh/s with each card? so should we higher clocks with higher corevoltages? I think memory frequenz is not so important?

Please share your clock settings for above hashrate, thank you.

This fork is not good for X16r performance wise, the post links a better performing one for X16S. The screenshot shows X16S running on VEGA GPUs.

Dear @admin thank you for quick and informative answer.. Now I understand . Which algo(s) would you advice for all rx480/580 owners , here ? In which algo do u see , some good future ?
And also do u think , x16s can overwhelm to x16r in the future ?

Thank you in advance . This is the only place , I am following miner software (all up to date)..
