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

The latest update to the CryptoNight AMD GPU miner SRBMiner to version 1.7.0 brings improved hashrate in a number of the supported mining algorithms of up to about 10% depending on your GPU (most gains on VEGA) for the BitTube, Haven, Heavy and Italo algorithms as well as some small speed increase on CryptoNight V8 for VEGA GPUs. It also comes with support for a new mining algorithms – CN-Dark [CryoNote] and CN-Fest [Festival coin]. Do note that the developer fee is now ~0.85% for both normal mode and algorithm switching mode in the new version. There are also a number of other fixes and improvements, you can find the full changelog for the latest update below.

SRBMiner V1.7.0 Full Cangelog:
– Speed increase on BitTube/Haven/Heavy/Italo algos up to ~10% (depends of gpu)
– Small speed increase on V8 algo for Vegas
– Added new algo CN-Dark [CryoNote]
– Added new algo CN-Fest [Festival coin]
– Added startup monitor which monitors miner startup process
– Added new work mode for GPU hashrate watchdog [--gpuwatchdogdisablemode]
– Added yet another gpu tuning parameter ‘aes’
– Fixed a bug related to hash speed monitor and algo switching
– Small bug fixes

The latest update to the CryptoNight AMD GPU miner SRBMiner to version 1.6.8 brings support for a new mining algorithm – CryptoNight V8, this will be the new algorithm used by Monero (XMR) as Monero will fork on block 1685555 (around October 18th), so make sure you are ready to mine it after the fork to the new algorithm. The miner should now start up a little bit faster and there are some small performance improvements on some video cards. Also note that the developer fee is now ~0.85% for both normal mode and algo switching mode in the new version. There are also a number of other fixes and improvements, you can find the full changelog below.

SRBMiner V1.6.8 Full Cangelog:
– New Monero algo added (normalv8)
– Small speed increase on some cards
– Fee is now ~0.85% for both normal mode and algo switching mode
– Faster miner startup
– Pools with different algos can now be used in pools.txt, miner will re-init on switch
– Fixed bug when setting compute mode on more than 9 cards
– Fixed a bug showing bad date for ‘connected since’ and ‘average share find time’
– Gpu hashrate watchdog now won’t trigger if user is not connected to a pool
– reboot_script parameter removed and added ‘reboot_script_min_rig_speed’ and ‘reboot_script_gpu_watchdog’ instead
– Added more logging in gpu init part
– API parameters now have to be set in start.bat (--apienable, --apiport, --apirigname) , removed them from config.txt
– Press ‘o’ to switch to the previous pool from pools.txt
– If you add ‘stratum+ssl://’ before the pool address, TLS will be automatically enabled
