We are seeing a quite active development going on for the WildRig Multi AMD GPU miner since its relatively recent introduction (the successor of the WildRig Wild Keccak miner) with new algorithms and features being added constantly. The latest beta version of the WildRig Multi supports BCD, C11, Geek, HMQ1725, PHI, Renesis, Sonoa and Tribus algorithms with more coming along in the future – X16r, X16s, Xevan and Hex and a much needed benchmark mode is also coming soon apparently. It is currently the preferred AMD GPU miner for anyone interested in Bitcoin Dark (BCD) mining, though the performance on other supported algorithms is also very good.

Do note that the WildRig Multi currently supports only AMD GPUs with the newer RX series and VEGA supported out of the box and a separate download of binary kernels needed for older R9 series Fiji, Hawaii and Tonga. Unlike its predecessor the WildRig Multi miner does not support Nvidia GPUs, it will only work on AMD-based mining rigs. The WildRig Multi 0.11.6 Beta is currently only available for Windows, Ubuntu Linux and HiveOS as a closed source binary and with a 2% developer fee built-in by default, though it can be reduced.

There is a new update of the ccMiner fork from tpruvot v2.2.2 (source) available for Nvidia GPU miners that adds supports for new algorithms and comes with some other fixes and improvements. The two new algorithms introduced are HSR used by Hshare/Hcash (x13 + custom hash) as well as the Phi used by LuxCoin, there are improvements for the SIB algorithm for Maxwell and Pascal cards. The new version comes with a small fix to handle more than 9 cards on Linux (-d 10+), an attempt to free Equihash memory “properly” and –submit-stale parameter for the supernova pool (which changes difficulty too fast).

The official Windows binary releases on tpruvot’s GitHub are compiled with CUDA 9 and they do require a more recent Nvidia video driver version 384.xx or newer in order to have support for the latest CUDA version. We have compiled a 32-bit Windows Binary for CUDA 8.0 that you can download below, it does not seem much different performance wise, it can just be used on systems with older drivers without having to update the video drivers first with ones supporting CUDA.
