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+). 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.

Yet another update from sp on his open source and free fork of supminer (ccminer) called Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #7 (source) with a bit more extra performance thanks to optimizations done to hamsi/Echo/echo-simd. The X16S support should be fixed in this release as well as it was broken in the previous, but our quick tests in a few pools show that no shares are being accepted – low difficulty or invalid shares getting reported by the pools, so it may need some more work. X16S support is now really fixed, make sure you download the miner again if you have downloaded the initial binary that was released for the fix applied.

The ultimate goal of this miner is apparently to take the top spot in terms of X16x performance from the current leader z-enemy 1.15a and this release is a step closer to that goal. Our tests on GTX 1080 Ti show that Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #7 is still a tiny bit behind in terms of pure performance, however you should not forget that the z-enemy miner contains a 1% developer fee built-in and that already makes things pretty much even on actual performance. It is always good to have some competition as it drives things forward.

Another update from sp on his open source and free fork of supminer (ccminer) called Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #6 (source) that promises another +10-15% performance increase (Optimizations to aes, echo and simd) over the recently released Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #5. The only not so good thing is that this miner comes at a time when X16R mining is not very profitable to be mined, but that goes for many other algorithms as well in the currently low profit period for mining. The Github repository only has an official Windows binary, 32-bit CUDA 9.2, so if you need something else you would need to compile from source yourself.

With the latest Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #6 the miner is trying to compete for the top spot performance wise with the other fastest X16R miners out there (X16S support seems to be broken). Performance wise the spmod-git #6 seems to be slightly faster than T-Rex and z-enemy 1.14, but could be just a bit slower (in some of the algorithms) behind the latest z-enemy 1.15a. However you should not forget that the z-enemy miner is a closed source one and comes with a built-in 1% developer fee, while the Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #6 miner is free, open source and with no dev fee so taking that into account the end result in terms of hashrate you get maybe is already pretty much the same.
