The development of the still relatively new CryptoDredge Nvidia GPU miner is moving pretty fast in lately with a number of minor releases made available in just a few days of time bringing some performance improvements, fixes and new features to the miner. Since the latest major release CryptoDredge 0.8.0 there is an improvement in Allium, Lyra2z, and Phi2 performance for low-end and middle-end graphics cards, a fix P2Pool bug related to many rejected shares as well as a fix TCP and WebSocket connections used for API along with added power consumption monitoring. Then there was a fix for a Phi2 bug related to smart contracts implemented, an improvement of about 3% for PHI2 as well as a much more significant boost of up to 30% for Tribus and a fix for Lyra2z performance on 1070 Ti and P104-100 graphics cards. And our usual reminder that the CryptoDredge miner is a closed source software that comes with 1% built-in developer fee with binaries available for both Windows and Linux (CUDA 9.1/9.2).

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.

The CryptoDredge miner has started as a faster alternative for Nvidia miners for the Lyra2REv2 algorithm, but since then it has been evolving into a multi-functional miner that supports more algorithms and provides good performance in them as well. The latest version of CryptoDredge brings performance improvements in a few algorithms and also support for the Tribus crypto algorithm. You can expect to get around 15-30% faster hashrate in Allium and Phi2 and about 18-35% faster performance in Lyra2z with the version 0.8.0, depending on your GPUs. Do note that as a result of the increased performance the energy consumption might also increase, so if your GPUs get hotter just decrease the TDP limit a bit. Also you might need to update the video drivers to the latest release if you are using an older version. We are reminding you that CryptoDredge is a closed source miner that comes with 1% built-in developer fee, so there is no source code and only binary releases available for both Windows and Linux.
