There is an update for the popular CryptoNight AMD GPU miner SRBMiner that brings some fixes and improvements, though this time no new algorithms are being added in version 1.6.6. The most interesting new feature in the latest version is the algo/coin switching protocol currently in beta, though you should know that in order for this to work the pool must support it. There is just one pool at the moment that supports the new switching protocol and that one is Monero Ocean that supports 9 different CryptoNight-based coins at the moment. To enable this new mode you need to add the --usealgoswitching parameter in your command line for running the miner. The fee for using the miner in algorithm switching mode is ~0.91%. The only not so great thing about this new feature however is that when a switch of the algorithm/coin is happening the miner is being restarted, so it takes some extra time to start mining for each switch. You can find what are the other changes, new features and fixes below.

SRBMiner V1.6.6 Full Cangelog:
– Added support for algo/coin switching protocol BETA (pool must support it)
– “restart_devices_on_startup” and “restart_devices_on_startup_script” is now replaced with –resetvega and –startupscript
– Fixed “reboot_script” parameter, which should be triggered by hashrate watchdog
– Kernel 2 should be now automatically selected for R9 200 series
– Auto setup for RX 4XX and 5XX series should be now a little bit better
– Fixed a bug which could occur when receiving jobs too rarely
– Added miner version to API
– DevFee mining is not displayed anymore

A new version of the popular CryptoNight AMD GPU miner SRBMiner is now available bringing some new features and a number of improvements worth updating if you are mining any of the supported Cryptonight algorithms. The latest version 1.6.5 adds support for one new algorithm – Cryptonight Red (MoX Project) that is about to soon launch. New benchmarking parameters are added that give you the ability to benchmark your settings offline, so you don’t need to connect to a pool anymore just to test hashrate performance of an algorithm. There is no more need for compute switching software, you can do it now easily from SRBMiner via a dedicated command line parameter that will find all your AMD cards and set them to compute mode, and also disable crossfire on them. Te latest version of the miner is now just one executable file, so no more dll files are needed making it more portable. Do note that for optimal performance it is recommended to use the Adrenalin 18.6.1 or Adrenalin 18.3.4 AMD GPU drivers, you can also use the old Blockchain drivers or the newer 18.7.1, but with reduced performance.

Supported CryptoNight variations:
– Cryptonight
– Cryptonight V7
– Cryptonight Lite
– Cryptonight Lite V7
– Cryptonight Heavy
– Cryptonight IPBC
– Cryptonight Artocash
– Cryptonight Alloy
– Cryptonight Marketcash
– Cryptonight B2n
– Cryptonight Stellitev4
– Cryptonight Fast
– Cryptonight Haven
– Cryptonight Italo
– Cryptonight Mox

There is a new miner on the block called BXB-Miner that supports many different variants of the CryptoNight algorithm intended for AMG GPU miners, though it also supports CPU mining, that comes with a graphical user interface (kind of) as you still need to the the setup in a config file. It is a closed source miner, available only for Windows for the moment, though surprisingly there is no developer fee as we are used to see with most non-opensource miners.

BXB-Miner works with:
– Cryptonight
– Cryptonight v7
– Cryptonight-Heavy (Bixbite, Sumocoin)
– New Stellite
– New Haven
– IPBC, Alloy
– Cryptonight Lite
– Cryptonight Lite v7

Performance wise the miner does seem to do pretty well compared to other alternatives, though do note that the BXB-Miner is still in early beta, so there is a more work needed to make it more user friendly. Still you might be interested in giving it a try.
