The latest update of the z-enemy 1.28 Nvidia GPU miner comes with more hashrate increasing optimizations in a number of the supported crypto algorithms such as BCD, HEX, X16R, X16S, X17 Bitcore, C11, Sonoa and others. You can expect to see performance improvements of up to 7-8% for Bitcoin Diamond, up to about 4-5% for HEX, up to 3-5% for X16R, X16S, X17, Bitcore, C11, Sonoa, etc… So if using any of the supported algorithms by the z-enemy miner at the moment you should definitely upgrade your version to 1.28 to get a bit of extra performance increase.

The latest z-enemy version 1.28 is available for CUDA 9.1, 9.2 and 10.0 for 64-bit Windows versions as well as CUDA 9.0, CUDA 9.1, CUDA 9.2 and CUDA 10 binaries for Linux (HiveOS, PiMP OS, EthOS & Ubuntu). Make sure that you have the respective recent video driver version installed for the CUDA version you want to use – 388+ for 9.1, 397+ for 9.2 and 411+ for CUDA 10.0, though 415+ is advised for the best performance. We remind you that z-enemy is a closed source miner available only as a binary release and it contains a 1% developer fee built-in to support further software development.

The latest CryptoDredge Nvidia GPU miner version 0.14.0 comes with support for the new Lyra2REv3 algorithm as well as improved performance for X22i used by the SUQA project, faster Skunkhash and X16-based algorithms. The new Lyra2REv3 algorithm is going to be used by Vertcoin (VTC) as a means to avoid the use of the recently made available ASICs for the currently used Lyra2REv2 algorithm. VTC is currently running on testnet with the new algorithm with mainnet fork to Lyra2REv3 coming soon if everything is fine with the testnet release and there are not problems.

With the latest release you can expect to get up to 10-12% performance boost for the X22i algorithm, up to 2-4% for Skunkhash and up to 5-7% performance increase for the X16-based algorithms, so definitely worth upgrading for the extra performance. 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).

After a while with no updates the NebuTech BTMiner is back with a new name, a lot of changes and new functionality under the name NBMiner. The miner is still intended for mining Bytom (BTM) on Nvidia GPUs and the latest version brings a lot of new stuff with the miner becoming more like other miners you are already used to with. Apart from improved BTM hashrate, added support for backup mining pools and a decreased developer fee to 2% (down from 3%) the new miner comes with a BTM+ETH dual mining mode as well as XMR+ETH, thiugh it seems that there are some issues with that as version 12 temporary removes the XMR support, but it should be back. We remind you that the NebuTech BTMiner is a closed source Bytom (BTM) GPU miner for Nvidia CUDA (drive version to 377 or newer is required) that is available for both Windows and Linux operating systems and it has a 2% developer fee built-in.
