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 mines 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.

CryptoDredge is a relatively new Nvidia GPU miner that we are using mostly for its great Lyra2REv2 performance, though the miner also supports a number of other mining algorithms with good performance as well. The just released latest version of the software CryptoDredge 0.7.0 comes with just some improvements and fixes, but more importantly there is now a Linux binary available and not only a Windows one. We need to remind 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 that you can use. Feel free to compare performance o Windows and Linux versions of the miner and report your results in the comments below.

CryptoDredge is a new Nvidia GPU miner that we have recently talked about as it is offering one of the best Lyra2REv2 performance at the moment. It is a closed source miner that support the following algorithms: Allium, Lyra2REv2, Lyra2z, NeoScrypt and PHI1612 and requires Nvidia GPUs with Compute Capability 5.0 or newer (Maxwell or Pascal architecture). There is a 1% developer fee built-in, so make sure you are Ok with these before checking it out if you still haven’t and make sure to update if you are using the miner already, as it is quite interesting for people mining crypto coins using Lyra2REv2 and Lyra2z algorithms.

The latest version CryptoDredge 0.4.1 adds a bit more performance improvement for Lyra2REv2, we are seeing about 5% increase on GTX 1080 Ti compared to the previous version of the miner, though note that the improvement may vary from one to another GPU. Another interesting improvement is that Lyra2Z should now be mineable on all of the supported Nvidia GPUs and not only on GTX 1050 GPUs. The third interesting new feature is that the miner should now be able to check for new versions and report the availability of such, no auto updating though and we still need to check the feature out when a new version comes out.
