The latest SRBMiner-MULTI CPU and AMD GPU Miner version 0.2.0 has added support for another RandomX variant, namely the RandomV algorithm (MoneroV) as well as some additional tweaks, you can find the full changelog below. The previous release has also added support for the RandomSFX algorithm (SafexCash), so you can say that there is revival for CPU mining lately centered around RandomX, unfortunately that also has some negative side effects such as botnets mining. We’ll see how things go and for how long RandomX will remain in the CPU mining domain only with the growing interest around it and with many different variations becoming available as well.

SRBMiner-MULTI CPU & AMD GPU Miner 0.2.0 beta changelog:
– Added RandomV algorithm (MoneroV)
– Added –randomx-use-tweaks, to select the MSR tweak/s to apply
– Added RandomX tweak support for Intel Core2 processors

The XMR-STAK-RX RandomX miner has been updated to version 1.0.3 bringing some performance improvements for both Windows and Linux, some fixes and also support for the RandomX ArQmA algorithm. With this addition XMR-STAK-RX does come with full RandomX algorithm support like the alternatives SRBMiner-Multi and XMRig that already had support for the algorithm that ArQmA uses now. Unfortunately performance wise XMR-STAK-RX may still need a bit more to catch up to the alternatives, even with the fact tat there is developer fee at all for this miner. We remind you that out of the RandomX and RandomX-based algorithms the one used by the ArQmA (ARQ) project is doing best in terms of performance on Intel CPUs lagging in terms of performance just a bit behind the AMD Ryzen.

RagerX is a new RandomX miner for Monero (XMR), built for speed and ease of use, featuring an integrated PPLNS pool and its own dedicated operating system for the mining software. According to the developers RagerX is the fastest and easiest RandomX miner on the market, offering up to 10% faster performance compared to other RandomX CPU miners available such as XMR-Stak-RX or XMRig. There is a catch however, you need to flash a dedicated operating system that the RagerX miner uses on a USB flash and boot from it on your mining rig and use the dedicated mining pool that only supports Monero (XMR) mining for the moment, though support for other RandomX coins is apparently coming soon.

With the RagerX miner you get up to 10% faster performance with zero development fee for the miner, but since you have to use the dedicated pool you are going to get a 3.5% pool fee, but even like that you should still get better hashrate compared to other alternatives that are supposedly slower. The only drawback for the moment is the fact that the RagerX Monero mining pool was just opened for the public and the hashrate it currently has is pretty low, so it will take a bit of time for users to come and bump it up so there is a faster block time. What we liked especially is the fact that email address is not required for a registration to the pool, only username and password along with an XMR payment address… an email address can be added later on if you wish to use notifications for example. The pool uses the PPLNS payout system which is short for Pay-Per-Last-N-Shares and the minimum payout is 0.1 XMR which can take a while to be reached with just a single CPU mining RandomX.
