When we are talking about Cryptonote (Cryptonight) miners for AMD GPUs our preferred miner is SRBMiner due to the large range of supported variations and features, however there is a good competitor available and that one is called JCE Cryptonote CPU+GPU miner. The JCE miner is a closed source software available as a binary for Windows only (for the GPU) and with 0.9% developer fee for the GPUs (the separate CPU miner is with higher fees, Linux version is available for this one). In terms of performance the JCE miner is pretty much on par with the fastest alternatives like SRB, sometimes it might be a bit faster, sometimes a bit slower, depending on the algorithm and settings. For instance our latest experience shows a bit better performance for Tube mining using JCE compared to the latest SRB 1.7.7 on RX 580. The JCE miner does support a lot of the Cryptonothe (Cryptonight) variations out there, so you can use it to mine pretty much all popular variants. There is support for SSL as well as for NiceHash’s extranonce functionality

There is now a new sgminer fork with MTP support being actively developed by djm34 (source) that looks promising, though it might need some more extra work for becoming more stable stable and reliable. Performance results on AMD RX 580 and AMD VEGA GPUs are quite good compared to what Nvidia MTP miners are currently offering and hashrate is much better than what the only available option with MTP support for ADM so far was delivering up until now – WildRig Multi. So if you are interested in mining ZCoin using the MTP algorithm on AMD you might want to give the new sgminer fork a try, there are two separate kernels available – mtp and mtp_vega and you might try both on your AMD GPUs to see what works better. Do note that the sgminer fork with MTP support is currently only available with a Windows binаry, though since it is open source you can try compiling it on Linux.

There are already a number of miners available for Nvidia GPUs that support the Equihash 150,5 algorithm used by BEAM, however there aren’t that much available to AMD miners and there is pretty much just one being actively developed at the moment – lolMiner. The lolMiner is a closed source Equihash GPU miner available for Windows and Linux and focused on AMD GPU, though it also works with Nvidia GPUs, in order to get support for BEAM’s Equihash 150,5 algorithm you need to go for the newer 0.7 alpha version with alpha4 being the latest. The latest version of the miner should work with 3GB VRAM GPUs, though there could be some issues if using Windows 10 on your mining rigs.

The performance you can expect on AMD’s RX 580 GPUs is about 11-12 Sol/s, pretty much the same that Nvidia GTX 1060 can deliver on Equihash 150,5. If you have older AMD HD 7970 or R9 280 you can get slightly less at about 10 Sol/s and on AMD VEGA you should be able to get up to about twice that hashrate, so performance is quite good on AMD. The fastest miners for Nvidia GPUs however are doing better than AMD GPUs, like about 30 Sol/s on GTX 1080 Ti for example, so have that in mind as well.
