The latest CryptoDredge Nvidia GPU miner version 0.15.0 comes with fixes for Lyra2REv3 performance, but more importantly it also adds support for the new MTP algorithm currently being used by the Zcoin (XZC) project. It is recommended to immediately upgrade to the new 0.15.0 if you are mining Zcoin (XZC) at the moment with the djm34 ccminer fork as you should be getting more than double the performance with CryptoDredge on GTX 1×00 series and more than half on RTX 2×00 series, so again worth mining even with the recent hashrate increase we are seeing. Another important thing regarding MTP support is that you need to use Nvidia graphics card with at least 5 GB video memory, however there are no special requirements for CPU and RAM, so 4 GB System RAM must be sufficient (older miners had larger memory requirements!). Also note that compared to other algorithms MTP transfers a larger amount of data to the pool, so this may be a problem for limited and slow internet connection speeds. Have in mind that after the performance optimizations in CryptoDredge for MTP the power consumption has also increased over the low usage that ccminer has been having for this algorithm previously.

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, there are binaries available for both Windows and Linux (CUDA 9.1/9.2/10.0).

The T-Rex Nvidia GPU miner has been updated to version 0.8.9 bringing a number of improvements in terms of performance as well as support for some new algorithms since the last time we covered the miner. The newly added algorithms in the recent updates include astralhash, jeonghash, padihash, pawelhash that are being used used by GlobalToken. The performance improvements are focuses on X22i and the X16 family of algorithms in general (x16r, bcd, x17, x22i etc.) as well as skunkhash. 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.

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.
