It has been a while since we have seen an update of tpruvot’s ccminer fork (source), but there it is now a new version 2.2.6 that comes with support for the new PHI2 algorithum for Luxcoin (LUX) that has just forked from the old PHI1612 as well as support for the new Allium algorithm for Garlic. There is an official binary release compiled for Windows available for download, do note it is a 64-bit only and it has been compiled with CUDA 9.0, so make sure that you have up to date video drivers for your Nvidia GPUs installed.

On a side note, Mining Rig Rentals has also just added support for people willing to buy or sell their PHI2 mining hahsrate. So if you need more PHI2 mining power or want to sell your hashrate instead, then you might want to check it out as well. There are still just a few rigs available, but with demand there should be more appearing and if there is demand you can also make some extra profit leasing your rig(s) as well.

CryptoDredge is a new simple and highly optimized crypto currency miner software for Nvidia GPU mining rigs that supports just a few algorithms at the moment, but performance wise it looks very promising. It support the following algorithms: Allium, Lyra2REv2, Lyra2z, NeoScrypt and PHI1612 and requires Nvidia GPUs with Compute Capability 5.0 or newer (Maxwell or Pascal architecture). Currently Lyra2z support is only limited to GTX 1050 GPUs, all other algoritms should work fine on other Nvidia GPUs. Also have in mind that CryptoDredge is a closed source miner available only for windows at the moment and it comes with a built-in developer fee of 1%.

What caught our interest initially with this new miner is the claim that it is the fastest Lyra2REv2 miner, so we had to compare its performance with the most popular Lyra2REv2 ccminer from from Nanashi that most people still use when it comes to mining Lyra2REv2 on Nvidia GPUs. Well, we can confirm that we are getting around 15% better performance with CryptoDredge vs the same settings using the ccMiner 2.2-mod-r2 fork by Nanashi Meiyo-Meijin on GTX 1080 Ti. So if you are mining a coin using the Lyra2REv2 algorithm or are selling your Lyra2REv2 hashrate on NiceHash you might want to check out the CryptoDredge miner.

SRBMiner is turning out to be the first choice for a CryptoNight AMG GPU miner thanks to the good and fast support and especially the reaction time to changes and new CryptoNight variations getting supported. The latest version 1.6.0 of SRBMiner adds support for the new Haven (HVN) algorithm to go after the fork at block 89200 as well as for the new Masari (MSR) algorithm to go after the fork at block 204000. The latest version also comes with some new features and improvements to make it more usable and problem free, though apparently there are still some miner crashes happening mostly on Windows systems with the latest 1803 update.

We are reminding you that SRBMiner is a closed source miner and comes with a built-in developer fee of 0.85%. It is only available for Windows operating systems as a precompiled binary that you can download and use. SRBMiner is designed for AMD OpenCL GPUs and will work on a wider range of AMD-based video cards, both older and newer generations such as the latest Radeon RX series.

Supported CryptoNight variations:
– Cryptonight
– Cryptonight V7
– Cryptonight Lite
– Cryptonight Lite V7
– Cryptonight Heavy
– Cryptonight IPBC
– Cryptonight Artocash
– Cryptonight Alloy
– Cryptonight Marketcash
– Cryptonight B2n
– Cryptonight Stellitev4
– Cryptonight Fast
– Cryptonight Haven
