The latest T-Rex Nvidia GPU miner version 0.11.0 adds support for the new X25x algorithm to be used by the SUQA/SIN Project in the upcoming hardfork planned for block 165,000 or around 24th-25th May. So far this is the first and the only miner for the new X25x algorithm to be ready ahead of the fork, so if you are planning on mining SUQA/SIN after the fork make sure you are ready. Aside from the support for the new algorithm, the new latest T-Rex brings some bug fixes that help improve the stability of the miner. The previous release T-Rex 0.10.2 from a couple of days ago also brought support for the MTP algorithm (Zcoin), so this is something new if you have missed the previous update and are still on the pretty old 0.9.2 version.

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.

More updates from the WildRig Multi AMD GPU miner with the latest version 0.16.3 Beta bringing some more performance improvements for various supported and new algorithms. Starting with version 16.0 there is support for a number of new crypto algorithms including wildkeccak, honeycomb and xevan along with number of additional performance improvements and optimizations for these algorithms. The latest version continues to improve some hashorders for x16 family of algorithms (JH512 in middle, SIMD at start) and comes with special improvement for Vega on almost all of the supported algorithms (bcd, x16-fmaily, hex, x22i, etc.).

Do note that the WildRig Multi currently supports only AMD GPUs with the newer RX series and VEGA out of the box, while for older R9 series Fiji, Hawaii and Tonga there is a separate download available with binary kernels. The WildRig Multi 0.16.3 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. wildkeccak and honeycomb algorithms are with fixed 2% dev fee with no possibility to change.

Claymore has updated his dual Ethereum plus DCR, SC, LBRY, PASC, Blake2s and Keccak AMD and Nvidia GPU miner to version 14.1 bringing some extra performance with built-in memory straps with optimized timings for AMD GPUs along with some new features, improvements and bug fixes. Version 14.0 Beta of the miner has added the ability to apply optimized memory timings (straps) on-the-fly without the need to reflash the video BIOS (Windows only for now) for AMD Polaris GPUs giving you up to 20% boost in performance, 14.1 extends the support for AMD VEGA GPUs with up to 15% boost in performance. Claymore is apparently also working on implementing support for Nvidia GPUs as well in order to avoid the need to use external software along with his miner for the extra memory boost.

We remind you that the Claymore Dual Ethereum miner is a closed source software with a built-in developer fee of 1% by default, though you can disable the dev fee at the cost of slightly slower performance. You can read what is the full list of changes in the latest version 14.1 below:

– “strap” option: added support for Vega cards, up to 15% speedup compared to stock BIOS. Use “-strap 1” … “-strap 5” values and overclock memory to find the best hashrate.
– improved compatibility with AMD 18.x drivers.
– now miner uses CUDA10 runtime library for Nvidia.
– a few minor bug fixes and improvements.
