Bitmain may not have a stock of their newer 7nm chips for the faster SHA256 ASIC miners, but they apparently have more of the old chips to push new miners, so hence the Antminer S9 SE is born. It is a 16 THS Bitcoin ASIC miner with built-in power supply(?) and a 1280W power consumption (80 J/TH power efficiency). The price of the new Bitmain Antminer S9 SE ASIC miner is set at $351 USD with the first batch to go on sale today scheduled for shipping in 21-31 July, 2019.

Although this may be far from the latest offerings in terms of hashrate, miners like the “new” Antminer S9 SE might be interesting for some people due to their low price and if they can be combined with low priced power it might be a good opportunity. The used market for Antminer S9 ASICs is booming lately due to the price of Bitcoin going up, so we see demand for the new miner for sure. Of course it also depends on the amount of units that Bitmain can deliver…

The latest T-Rex Nvidia GPU miner version 0.11.1 brings very significant increase in the hashrate you get for the X25x algorithm that was recently added as supported… up to 3x the speed. The X25x algorithm is used by the SINOVATE (SIN) project (the former SUQA) and the performance you get with the latest T-Rex is up from abut 2.3 MHS for a single GTX 1080 Ti to about 6.8 MHS per card, or with other words from about 14 MHS to about 41 MHS for a 6x GTX 1080 Ti mining rig. The latest version also brings some new features and fixes to make the miner more usable and problem free.

Do note that the T-Rex is a closed source miner with 1% development fee built-in. Also make sure you have a recent video driver installed (the latest for CUDA 10 support) as the binaries for both Linux and Windows are compiled for CUDA 9.1/9.2/10.0.

Here comes CryptoDredge 0.20.1 and it brings along support for a new algorithm – Argon2d (NIM) algorithm (Dumb mode only), as well as number of fixes and additional performance improvements for MTP and Argon2d. The major version 0.20.0 did not get an official binary release, apparently due to some issues that were addressed in the 0.20.1 that was just made available for both Linux and Windows. The Linux version now also includes a watchdog feature…

Do note that the CryptoDredge miner supports only Nvidia GPUs and is a closed source software that comes with 1% built-in developer fee for all supported algorithms, however the dev fee is 2% currently only for MTP mining (Zcoin), there are binaries available for both Windows and Linux (CUDA 9.1/9.2/10.0).
