The author of the popular SRBminer CryptoNight AMD GPU miner has just updated his new mining software called SRBMiner-MULTI CPU and AMD GPU Miner to version 0.1.2 Betta adding support for the new kangaroo12 (k12) algorithm on GPU and CPU. The miner is targeted at algorithms for CPU mining as well as some CPU and GPU ones for more recent AMD-based video cards (R9 2xx series and newer)… other than the CN-based algorithms that the other SRBminer Cryptonight oriented miner software for AMD GPU supports. The latest version also fixes the dev fee at a lower 0.85% value for all of the supported algorithms (no more lower or higher developer fee) as well as comes with some bug fixes.

Do note that just like his CryptoNight GPU miner, this new CPU and GPU AMD miner is also available only for Windows (Linux version might be coming out soon as well hopefully) as a pre-compiled binary and there is a built-in developer fee now fixed at 0.85% for all supported algorithms. You can find the currently supported algorithms below:

CPU-only algorithms:
– cpupower
– yescryptr16
– yescryptr32
– yescryptr8
– yespower
– yespowerlitb
– yespowerr16
– yespowerltncg
– yespowersugar
– yespowerurx
– yespower2b

CPU + GPU algorithms:
– blake2b
– blake2s
– keccak
– mtp
– rainforestv2
– yescrypt
– eaglesong
– k12

The miniZ Nvidia CUDA closed source miner for Windows and Linux has been updated to version 1.5r that adds a major performance improvement for Equihash 210,9 (AION) for all supported Nvidia GPUs (up to 7%, depending on the GPU model). The new version also comes with improved stability, though this mostly affects Beam mining, as well as some small improvements and bug fixes to help make the miner more usable. MiniZ is still our preferred miner for ZElCash (Equihash 125,4) as it offers the best performance for that particular algorithm and hopefully the last update also fixes the stability issues it had in the previous version that required a loop to be set in order to keep the miner running.

The miner also supports Equihash 144,5, Equihash 150,5, Equihash 150,5,3, as well as Equihash 192,7, Equihash 125,4, Equihash 210,9 and Equihash96,5 and the various crypto currencies that use these algorithms on compatible Nvidia GPUs. There are CUDA 8.0 and CUDA 10.0 binaries available including support for Nvidia RTX GPUS with the CUDA 10 release (check which version works better on older GPUs, CUDA 10 is required fo RTX). Have in mind that since miniZ is a closed source miner there is also a built-in developer fee of 2% percent included.

The latest two version of GMiner 1.69 Nvidia and AMD miner has added support for the BFC algorithm used by the Chinese Bitfree Cash (BFC) project. BFC s apparently based on Cuckaroo29 algorithm and the project does not seem to be that popular yet among English speaking users, so you might want to check it out. Have in mind that the dev fee for the BFC algorithm is currently set to 3% instead of the regular 2% for all other supported algorithms by the miner. Also finding a pool in English might currently be an issue, so you can go for uuPool for now. Do note that the latest NBMiner also has support for BFC for Nvidia GPUs, so you might want to check it as well and see what gives you better performance.

The GMiner miner requires an Nvidia GPU with CUDA compute capability 5.0 or later as well as CUDA 9.0 driver support, some algorithms are already supported on AMD GPUs as well, but not all. Do note that GMiner is a closed source miner for Nvidia and AMD GPUs with binaries available for both Windows and Linux, also there is a 2% developer fee built-in the software.
