There is another zealot/enemy-1.17 (z-enemy) miner update from Dk and Enemy that adds even more performance improvements to the supported algorithms available. The new z-enemy 1.17 has a major hashrate boost of 5-10% for X16R & X16S, XDNA (HEX), x17, Bitcore (BTX), c11, Sonoa, Renesis and Aergo. Lower-end Nvidia video cards like the GTX 1050 and GTX 1060 should also see a few additional percents of improvement in performance as well. Also note that the latest miner no longer depends on memory, so it allows to run memory clock at +0 or -500 MHz without performance loss.

The latest 1.17 version is available for CUDA 9.1 and 9.2 for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows versions as well as CUDA 9.0, CUDA 9.1 an CUDA 9.2 binaries for Linux (HiveOS, PiMP OS, EthOS & Ubuntu). Do note that for maximum performance it is recommended to have the latest drivers installed (ver. 398+). We remind you that z-enemy is a closed source miner available only as a binary release and it contains a 1% developer fee built-in to support further software development.

If you are interested in mining LUXcoin (LUX) on AMD GPUs you migh not be verry happy that there are actually not that much miners available for the new PHI2 algorithm it currently uses, not to mention that Nvidia is dominating it performance wise. Still there is work being done to make AMD GPUs provide ood performance for PHI2 as well and there are currently two options available for you to try, one is closed source available only for Windows, but faster – the zjazz AMD miner, while the other one is an open source fork of sgminer with PHI2 support currently catching up in terms of performance – the sgminer-phi2-fancyIX with binary releases for Linux and Windows and source code.

The zjazz PHI2 AMD miner is really a new release in the form of a closed source miner with 1% developer fee and available only for Windows for the moment. The miner only supports newer AMD GPUs like the RX 400/500 series and VEGA and is currently the fastest performance wise. The open source release being developed by fancyIX as an sgminer fork is a little bit slower performance wise, but every new beta seems to be catching up pretty good in terms of performance improvement. There is no devfee and a Linux version is also availa ble, though you also have the source code and can compile yourself as well, the miner also works on older AMD GPUs, though performance is not that good on them anyway.

You can track the development of the opensource sgminer-phi2-fancyIX here on Bitcointalk…

There is a new zealot/enemy-1.16 (z-enemy) miner update from Dk and Enemy that adds additional performance improvements to a number of the supported algorithms by the software. There are extra 7-10% performance improvement to the newly added HEX mining algorithm recently introduced by the XDNA project as well as 5-7% increase in hashrate for the X16R and X16S mining algorithms. The X17, X11, Sonoa, Renesis and Aergo crypto algorithms have also received a smaller, but still a few percent improvement in the latest release. As far as the improved performance in the algorithm used by Renessis (RESS), it still needs a bit of catching up to what the latest T-Rex 0.5.7 miner provides in terms of performance.

As an experimental feature the intensity limit has been increased to 25 and most supported algorithms should be capable of handling it to help you in possibly increase the performance a bit more… previously only available for the HEX algorithm. The latest version is available for CUDA 9.1 and 9.2 for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows versions as well as CUDA 9.0, CUDA 9.1 an CUDA 9.2 binaries for Linux (Ubuntu and Hive OS). Do note that for maximum performance it is recommended to have the latest drivers installed (ver. 398+).
