Forkmaps is an interesting open project still in development for providing a useful visual representation of all CryptoNote-based coins and their forks, along with additional information for every CryptoNote coin out there. The project currently lists 236 coins and you can quickly and easily find the links between the main coins and their forks, along with what kind of CryptoNight algorithm is uses and links o useful resources for each of the coins. It can be an useful source of information as well as an interesting tool to research more into a crypto project based on CryptoNote, so you might want to check it out and find something interesting.

The latest release of the XMRig 5.3.0 comes with additional performance improvements for RandomX mining with AMD Ryzen users reporting up to 6-7% boost and less for Intel thanks to automatic disabling of the CPU prefetchers using the MSR registers on OS level (both Windows and Linux are supported). Prior to adding automatic support for that you could manually do the trick to get the same boost, but it is much easier when the miner does everything on its own (make sure you run with root/admin privileges. Since the RandomX algorithm accesses memory randomly prefetchers just don’t help and disabling them can actually help improve performance, so a nice extra boost in performance for RandomX that you should take advantage of. If you are using Lunux you can also try the 1GB huge pages support that was introduced recently in version 5.20 to gain an extra 1-3% performance.

The XMR-STAK-RX RandomX miner has been updated to version 1.0.3 bringing some performance improvements for both Windows and Linux, some fixes and also support for the RandomX ArQmA algorithm. With this addition XMR-STAK-RX does come with full RandomX algorithm support like the alternatives SRBMiner-Multi and XMRig that already had support for the algorithm that ArQmA uses now. Unfortunately performance wise XMR-STAK-RX may still need a bit more to catch up to the alternatives, even with the fact tat there is developer fee at all for this miner. We remind you that out of the RandomX and RandomX-based algorithms the one used by the ArQmA (ARQ) project is doing best in terms of performance on Intel CPUs lagging in terms of performance just a bit behind the AMD Ryzen.
