The T-Rex miner is one of the newer GPU miners out there and it is an interesting option for Nvidia mining rig owners that are looking for profitable new coins based on less popular mining algorithms. Since we last covered the miner there have been some new additions of the supported mining algorithms, namely x16r, x16s and renesis along with some performance improvements in 0.5.7 for a few extra percent of performance in renesis, hsr, x16r, x16s, x17 and c11.

Performance wise we were a bit surprise that the X16R and X16S algorithms are not only now slower, but in fact at times may be even a bit faster at times compared to the latest z-enemy miner 1.14, at least what the miner reports. Also the performance for mining Renesis (RESS) is better than the official fork of ccminer for that algorithm, so you might want to check it out if you still haven’t done so.

Finally, just a reminder that T-Rex is a closed source miner and that there is 1% development fee built-in and you need to have a recent video driver installed as the binaries for both Linux and Windows are compiled for CUDA 9.1/9.2.

Lately we are seeing a number of new miners for GPUs that are not based on an already existing source code and are closed source releases with a small built-in developer fee. The T-Rex miner is one of those new miners and it is an interesting option for Nvidia GPU owners that are looking for profitable new coins based on less popular mining algorithms. The latest version T-Rex 0.5.1 does come with a binaries for both Windows and Linux and supports the following algorithms: lyra2z, phi2, hsr, c11, x17, phi and tribus offering good performance. The miner is intended for newer Nvidia GPUs such as Maxwell and the newest Pascal architectures, so it will not work on old Nvidia GPUs. There is 1% development fee built-in and you need to have a recent video driver installed as the binaries for both Linux and Windows are compiled for CUDA 9.1/9.2.

If you have GPU mining rigs using more recent Nvidia GPUs and are interested in mining NeoScrypt based crypto coins, then you might want to check out the new hsrminer for Neoscrypt. This is a new closed source miner being developed by palgin & alexkap that is currently available as a Windows-only binary with 1% developer fee built-in. Currently the hsminer software is under development with a version available for Neoscrypt as well as for HSR mining support with other crypto algorithms coming later on as well. The currently available hsrminer version for Neoscrypt does offer a good improvement in terms of performance as compared to the previously available fastest ccMiner releases, so definitely worth checking it out.

Before trying this miner software just make sure that your Nvidia GPU is with Compute Capability 5.0 supported as minimum (though currently only Pascal GPUs seem to work) as well that are using a driver version 388.3x or later. Also it is advised to make sure that the amount of virtual memory you have set under Windows is pretty high as the miner does require a lot of memory, especially for more powerful GPUs. If using Windows 10 you might want to be sure that you have all the latest updates installed including the Creators Update as otherwise you might have issues with the miner.
