The latest update of the CryptoDredge Nvidia GPU miner to version 0.9.4 for both Linux and Windows introduces support for a number of new mining algorithms as well as some performance improvements. The new algorithms include Exosis, C11, Polytimos and BCD (Bitcoin Diamond) and as far as performance improvements go, there is improvement in the hashrate for Allium (+3-5%), PHI1612 (+16-20%) and Skunkhash (+18-25%). Definitely worth the upgrade, even if you are not currently using your Nvidia GPU mining rigs for any of the supported algorithms, just to keep them up to date and ready for something new and interesting that pops up. Do note that the CryptoDredge miner supports only Nvidia GPUs and is a closed source software that comes with 1% built-in developer fee and with binaries available for both Windows and Linux (CUDA 9.1/9.2/10.0).

The latest version 0.7.2 for the T-Rex Nvidia GPU miner brings support for the new X22i mining algorithm used by the SUQA project. The even better news, besides the fact that another miner supports this new algorithm is that T-Rex 0.7.2 provides up to about 40% faster performance for X22i compared to the latest zjazz Nvidia miner that was previously the fastest in terms of hashrate. The SUQA coin has just reached its first planned block reward halving, so gaining some extra performance boost might be just what you need to keep things profitable on the longer term.

If you are mining SUQA on Nvidia GPUs, then it would be a wise idea to update from zjazz to the latest T-rex and continue mining it with significantly higher hashrate. If you are having stability issues with X22i mining you might try to decrease your overclock or play with the power limiter until you have the mining rig stable. 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 development for the WildRig Multi AMD GPU miner continues with a nice temp with new algorithms, performance improvements and new features being added constantly. Since the last time we covered the miner there a few more new algorithms now added as supported to the latest WildRig Multi AMD GPU miner, these are – X22i, Exosis, Skunkhash and Bitcore (timetravel10) along with some performance improvements for some of the already available algorithms and various fixes and functionality improvements. Support for more new algorithms is coming soon with ones such as Xevan and Lbk3 being the most likely candidates for the upcoming updates.

Do note that the WildRig Multi currently supports only AMD GPUs with the newer RX series and VEGA supported out of the box and a separate download of binary kernels needed for older R9 series Fiji, Hawaii and Tonga. Unlike its predecessor the WildRig Multi miner does not support Nvidia GPUs, it will only work on AMD-based mining rigs. The WildRig Multi Beta is currently available for Windows, Ubuntu Linux and HiveOS as a closed source binary and with a 2% developer fee built-in by default, though it can be reduced.
