The latest z-enemy 1.26 Nvidia GPU miner comes with additional performance boost in a number of the supported crypto algorithms as well as improved stability. We should note that the latest version also marks the removal of support for the Renesis algorithm, apparently due to the project introducing this algorithm getting abandoned. The new version adds up to +5-7% for X16r and X16s, +7% for Bitcore, few percent for other algorithms such as X17, C11, Aergo … on GTX 10×0 cards. The Hex algorithm gets +10% for GTX 10×0 cards and +2% for RTX 20×0 GPUs as a hashrate boost.

The latest z-enemy version 1.26 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.

More updates fro the CryptoDredge Nvidia GPU miner to version 0.13.0 that comes with support for two new crypto algorithms – X21S and Lyra2vc0ban, as well as some performance improvements and some fixes. The X21S is used by a new project called Ritocoin (RITO) that recently launched, the recent T-Rex 0.8.3 update was the first to add support for this new algorithm and still seems to be slightly faster. Lyra2vc0ban is a new algorithm implemented by the c0ban project as a countermeasure to ASICs for Lyra2REv2.

CryptoDredge 0.13.0 comes with performance improvements for the X22i and Skunkhash algorithms, taking the top spot performance wise for X22i from T-Rex, so make sure you switch if mining SUQA at the moment and want to get the best possible performance. There is also a fix implemented for the Exosis and Dedal algorithm when started from BLAKE as well as a color hash order added for x16. 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 NiceHash service for leasing and renting crypto hashrate has announced the addition of a new crypto algorithm to their list of supported algos – the Zhash algorithm or Equihash with parameter set 144,5. This algorithm is currently used as a PoW algorithm with Bitcoin Gold (BTG), Anon (ANON) and BitcoinZ (BTCZ) and other projects. The Zhash algorithm works by increasing the hardware requirements of Equihash to make the development of an ASIC appliance less viable and to put back GPU mining in control for the projects using this algorithm. Aside from support for Zhash on the marketplace for hashrate, mining Zhash is also supported through the latest NiceHash Miner Legacy (1.9.0.8) as well as third party miners of course.

Another popular service for renting and leasing mining rigs Mining Rig Rentals has been offering Zhash (Equihash 144,5) for quite some time, though the market there is usually smaller compared to what NiceHash is capable of providing in terms of hashrate. Apart from Zhash this service also offers support for Equihash 96,5 as well as Equihash 192,7 and Equihash 210,9 so if you need any of these you can check the MRR service as well.
