The latest SRBMiner-MULTI CPU and AMD GPU Miner version 0.1.7 brings support for the m7mv2 algorithm (CPU only) used by Magi Coin (XMG) along with some improvements such as better CPU auto configuration compared to earlier releases that had some issues using optimally all cores. We haven’t been following XMGM for quite some time now, but it is good that the project still continues and is developing, including forking to new algorithms such as the m7mv2. With the previous release SRBMiner-MULTI 0.1.6 the miner became a viable alternative to XMRig regarding RandomX support, so this is probably going to be generating a lot of interest as we get closer to the end of the month and the XMR fork to this new algorithm.

SRBMiner-MULTI CPU & AMD GPU Miner 0.1.7 beta changelog:
– Added ‘m7mv2’ algorithm (Magi coin – XMG)
– Cpu auto configuration should be better than on previous versions
– Added CPU data to API, also rearranged a few things in API
– Console window ‘Quick Edit’ mode disabled on miner start, so users won’t accidentally pause miner by clicking in the console window

The latest SRBMiner-MULTI CPU and AMD GPU Miner version 0.1.6 brings some improvement in CPU mining performance thanks to better utilization of processor threads, though it seems that further optimizations might be needed. In a quick test with RandomX-based algorithms we are seeing an improvement in hashrate compared to the previous SRBMiner-MULTI 0.1.5 that has introduced RandomX support, but full thread utilization may still not at 100% for all processors and performance is a bit lower when compared with XMRig on the same mining hardware, still it is good to see that efforts are being made for further improvements.

SRBMiner-MULTI CPU & AMD GPU Miner 0.1.6 beta changelog:
– Fixed threads binding on systems with more than 1 numa node
– Better auto configuration for cpu mining
– Previous two fixes should bring higher hashrates
– Added pool controlled algorithm switching capability (Monero Ocean)
– Added pool config parameter “algo_min_time” and --algo-min-time to cli (Monero Ocean)
– Added pool config parameter “keepalive” and --keepalive to cli

Update: There has been an update that fixes issues for SRBMiner-MULTI 0.1.6 that corrects the less than 100% load on all cores/threads of the processor, so now the performance is even better and should be pretty much the same as what XMRig currently offers on the same mining hardware as far as RandomX and its variants are concerned, so just redownload version 0.1.6 if you downloaded the initial release.

The latest SRBMiner-MULTI 0.1.5 miner has introduced support for the RandomX and its few variants for CPU mining, something that we were eagerly anticipating to see and to compare the performance to the already available XMRig RandomX CPU miner. SRBMiner-MULTI 0.1.5 supports CPU mining of RandomX for the upcoming Monero (XMR) fork, the variants RandomXL for LOKI and RandomWow or Wownero that are already using their new algorithms for mining as well as the RandomArq for the upcoming ArQmA (ARQ) fork. There are some new features, improvements and fixes as well that might be helpful and useful with the new release, so you might want to check out the full changelog.

The most important question is what performance to expect from the atest SRBMiner-MULTI and the RandomX algorithm compared to what XMRig is already delivering to CPU miners? Well, unfortunately it seems that so far SRBMiner-MULTI will need to do better in order to catch up to the performance level tat latest XMRig is delivering, at least on AMD’s Ryzen 3xxx series of CPUs that do seem to be delivering one of the best RandomX hashrates out there for the moment. We have tested and compared both miners on an AMD Ryzen 5 3600 CPU (6 cores, 12 threads) and the results are significantly in favor of XMRig. While SRBMiner-MULTI CPU manages to deliver around 3000 H/s in our tests, the same system manages 5500+ H/s, so you might want to stick to XMRig for now until SRBMiner-MULTI gets further improved performance. With an Intel Core i7 6850K processor (6 cores, 12 threads) the XMRig does 2500 H/s while SRBMiner-MULTI CPU manages to deliver just around 1500 H/s and it seems that the slower hashrate is a direct result of the miner not being able to fully utilize 100% of the available processor resources. The overall CPU load for SRBMiner-MULTI mining RandomX is just around 50% and not full 100% percent that it should be with the miner fully using all 12 threads of the processor.
