The latest GMiner 1.80 miner adds support for the Cortex algorithm used by the Cortex (CTXC) AI on Blockchain crypto project as well as support more Ethash coins along the recently introduced support for Ethereum: Pirl (PIRL), Callisto (CLO), Metaverse (ETP) and Expanse (EXP). Do note that the DevFee on the Cortex algorithm is currently set at 5%, which is higher compared to the regular 2% for the other supported algorithms, though this is to be expected since the official Cortex liner is only for Linux and GMiner seems to be the first with Windows support. When mining Cortex if you get a weird “Write timed out” error you might need to lower the intensity from the default 100 value, use the -i option with a value for each GPU separated by space (single value will be just for the first video card). It also seems that the power usage for the GPU when mining Cortex is lower than the max TDP value at the moment (further optimizations possible?), so the mining video cards are using less power and run cooler.

The GMiner miner software was originally only an Nvidia GPU miner, although some algorithms are already supported on AMD GPUs as well. Do note that GMiner is a closed source miner for Nvidia and AMD GPUs with binaries available for both Windows and Linux, there is a 2% developer fee built-in the software.

Team Red Miner is a performance optimized cryptocurrency miner for AMD GPUs with support for lyra2rev3, lyra2z, phi2, CryptoNight v8 (CNv2) and CryptoNight R (CNv4), X16 variants, MTP, Cuckarood29 and Cuckatoo31 and now adding Ethash support as well in the latest 0.6 release. The miner is available for both Windows and Linux operating systems, a closed source software with 2.5% to 3% development fee built-in for all algos except Ethash, for Ethash on Polaris GPUs the dev fee is 0.75% and on all other GPUs is 1.0%.

A quick test of the Team Red Miner 0.6.0 for mining ETH (current DAG 299) on AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB GPUs has shown hashrate very similar to what other Ethash miners are capable of delivering on the same hardware, so performance wise things seem to be very good. Of course why to switch from one Ethash miner that you might be already familiar with such as Claymore’s Dual Miner to another that has just introduced support… that is up to you to decide, though you should give it a try.

The latest NBMiner 26.1 update comes with a bit of improvement in the performance for mining CKB on Nvidia GPUs as well as support for Dual Mining ETH + CKB on AMD GPUs (dual mining was already available for Nvidia users). This update is just in time for the official launch for the Nervos CKB mainnet launch planned for tomorrow that uses the Eaglesong mining algorithm. Aside from NBMiner, you can also use GMiner and SRBMiner-MULTI for the Eaglesong algorithm, though with the latest update NBMiner should be slightly faster on Nvidia than GMiner.

We remind you that the NBMiner is a closed source GPU miner for Nvidia CUDA and now AMD as well that is available for both Windows and Linux operating systems and it has the following developer fee built-in: tensority_ethash 3%, tensority (Pascal) 2%, tensority (Turing) 3%, ethash 0.65%, cuckaroo & cuckatoo & cuckaroo_swap 2%, progpow_sero 2%, sipc 2%, bfc 3%.
