The RavenCoin (RVN) fork has been successfully executed and mining with GPUs is back once more with mining profitability of RVN the highest at the moment among GPU-mineable altcoins thanks to no significant change in the price. The hashrate is now about 5 times lower than before the fork, so most likely the presence of FPGAs and even maybe ASIC miners for the X16R algorithm is really significant. Anyway, apart from z-enemy and T-Rex miners for Nvidia there is a third option available now with X16Rv2 support. The new entry is the just released CryptoDredge v0.22.0 that now supports the X16Rv2 algorithm, like with other closed source Nvidia GPU miners, CryptoDredge also comes with a 1% dev fee for the X16RV2 algorithm. Our quick tests have shown that on GTX 1080 Ti the performance of CryptoDredge miner with X16Rv2 is not as high as on the current hashrate leader T-Rex… it is more like similar to that of z-enemy.

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).

The latest CryptoNight AMD GPU miner SRBMiner 1.8.8 comes with a significantly reduced CPU usage of up to ~50% that can be noticed on CryptoNight algorithms with small scratchpad like UPX2 and Turtle for example. This can be helpful on GPU mining rigs where the CPUs are struggling to provide enough performance and as a side effect there could be a slight performance boost for RX cards on UPX2. The new version brings some usability and functionality changes as well to make the use of the miner easier and more problem free.

You can find the full changelog for the latest release quoted below. Do note that the developer fee is ~0.85% for both normal mode and algorithm switching mode as SRBMiner is a closed source miner available for AMD GPU miners only under Windows.

SRBMiner V1.8.8 Full Cangelog:
– Reduced CPU usage up to ~50%, can be noticed on algos with small scratchpad
– User is now informed about tweaking status on the screen too, not just in log
– No more --gpureorder, device ordering by bus id is now the default/only display mode
– Added parameter --watchdogrounds, which controls after how many rounds will watchdog trigger
– min_rig_speed_duration default is 1 minute now, because of the new --watchdogrounds parameter
– Fixed a few cosmetical things on web stats
