The latest update of Bminer 11.4.0 has introduced experimental support for mining BEAM (Equihash 150/5) on AMD GPUs after the previous release brought support for the new algorithm on Nvidia GPUs. In order to enable AMD support you need to use an additional parameter in the command line of the miner, for example to run on the first AMD GPU: -devices amd:0, you need to list the deice IDs of the available AMD video cards in the mining rig that you want to use for mining. Do note that the BEAM Project does have an official AMD GPU miner as well as an Nvidia CUDA one, so you might want to try and compare the performance on AMD hardware between the two. Also note that BEAM mining support is still experimental on Bminer, so there could be some issues and problems at this point.

We remind you that that Bminer is a closed source Nvidia GPU miner available for Linux and Windows in the form of pre-compiled binaries and that there is a 2% development fee for Bytom (BTM), Equihash and Zhash coins, 0.65% for Ethash and 1.3% for dual mining Ethash and Blake.

The latest T-Rex Nvidia GPU miner version 0.9.1 adds support for two new algorithms – X16RT (Veil) and SHA256Q (Pyrite) and comes with some minor performance improvements for x16r, bcd, x22i and other x16-like algorithms. There are also multiple web monitoring page improvements introduced, along with a Linux watchdog as a windows one has been available for a while already. Everyone currently mining Veil that uses the new X16RT algorithm might be interested in switching to T-Rex 0.9.1 as it seems to be even faster compared to the recently released CryptoDredge 0.16.0 miner that also added support for X16RT. If you are looking for AMD GPU support for these two newly added algorithms in the T-Rex miner, namely X16RT and SHA256Q, then you might want to check the latest WildRig Multi miner.

Do note that the T-Rex is a closed source miner 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 compiled for CUDA 9.1/9.2/10.0.

The latest CryptoDredge Nvidia GPU miner version 0.16.0 comes with added support for the new X16RT algorithm being used by the recently launched Veil project that introduced the new algo. There is also support for the new Lyra2zz algorithm that is being used by the LAPO project, if you are interested in checking it out as well. The latest version also stabilizes the MTP algorithm hat is being used by the Zcoin project. If you are mining XZC or Veil with other miner at the moment you might want to try the latest CryptoDredge release as it is well performing and stable, working better than other alternates, not to mention it is the fastest one for the X16RT algorithm at the moment.

Do note that the CryptoDredge miner supports only Nvidia GPUs and is a closed source software that comes with 1% built-in developer fee for all supported algorithms, however the dev fee is 2% currently only for MTP mining (Zcoin), there are binaries available for both Windows and Linux (CUDA 9.1/9.2/10.0).
