It has been a quite a while since the last update of tpruvot’s ccminer fork (source), but there it is a new version 2.3.1 available now that comes with support for Lyra2REv3, sha256q, exosis and Blake2b standard algorithms. The official binary is 64-bit Windows only built with CUDA 10 for SM3+ devices, SM 7.5 architecture is also supported, but doesn’t seem to bring any advantage, for others variants you can build from the source code as the miner is opensource. Do note that CUDA 10 support requires an Nvidia video driver version 410.48 or newer.

The most notable thing abut the new release is the support for Lyra2REv3 that will soon be used by the Vertcoin (VTC) after the upcoming hardfork expected to happen in less than two days. The fork should happen in around February 2nd as it is planned for block 1080000, so make sure you are ready with the required local wallet upgrade (if you are using one) as well as with a miner supporting the new Lyra2REv3 algorithm like the latest ccminer from tpruvot available for Nvidia GPU miners.

One more update from sp on his open source and free fork of supminer (ccminer) called Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #8 (source) with a bit more extra performance optimizations that should bring faster x16R/X16S with 5 to 7% over the previous release. It is always good to have competition, especially with open source code, though the z-enemy miner 1.16 released a few days ago seems to be a bit faster.

As a recommendation to get the maximum performance with this miner you should try to overclock the memory 500 MHz or more (depending on your GPU) and mine with a fixed difficulty at the pool (normally set the difficulty parameter to around half of the hashrate of the mining rig), so for example for a 100 MHS rig you should set -p d=50 in the bat file for running the miner. There is also an upcoming fork for Raven (RVN) that should take care of the difficulty readjustment problems it is currently having, so you should keep an eye out for mining RVN to become interesting soon again and not only at times of low difficulty for half a day every few days.

Yet another update from sp on his open source and free fork of supminer (ccminer) called Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #7 (source) with a bit more extra performance thanks to optimizations done to hamsi/Echo/echo-simd. The X16S support should be fixed in this release as well as it was broken in the previous, but our quick tests in a few pools show that no shares are being accepted – low difficulty or invalid shares getting reported by the pools, so it may need some more work. X16S support is now really fixed, make sure you download the miner again if you have downloaded the initial binary that was released for the fix applied.

The ultimate goal of this miner is apparently to take the top spot in terms of X16x performance from the current leader z-enemy 1.15a and this release is a step closer to that goal. Our tests on GTX 1080 Ti show that Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #7 is still a tiny bit behind in terms of pure performance, however you should not forget that the z-enemy miner contains a 1% developer fee built-in and that already makes things pretty much even on actual performance. It is always good to have some competition as it drives things forward.
