One more update from sp on his open source and free fork of supminer (ccminer) now called X16r/X16s/C11 Spmod-git #9 (source) as it is no longer only for X16 algorithms. As the change in the name implies the the latest update adds faster C11 algorithm support and the optimizations to it should make it up to 33% faster than before, making the performance on par with the other fastest C11 miners such as T-Rex 0.6.1 and z-enemy 1.17. There are not only C11 performance improvements however in the latest update, it also comes with performance optimizations for X16 and X16S (faster bmw, shavite-cubehash), so better hashrate for these as well. The biggest advantage of this miner is that it is open source and comes with no developer fee built-in, meaning that all the performance you get is available to you and then there is also the source code available as well to learn from, modify and use to compile yourself.

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.

One more update from sp on his open source and free fork of supminer (ccminer) called Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #8 (source) with a bit more extra performance optimizations that should bring faster x16R/X16S with 5 to 7% over the previous release. It is always good to have competition, especially with open source code, though the z-enemy miner 1.16 released a few days ago seems to be a bit faster.

As a recommendation to get the maximum performance with this miner you should try to overclock the memory 500 MHz or more (depending on your GPU) and mine with a fixed difficulty at the pool (normally set the difficulty parameter to around half of the hashrate of the mining rig), so for example for a 100 MHS rig you should set -p d=50 in the bat file for running the miner. There is also an upcoming fork for Raven (RVN) that should take care of the difficulty readjustment problems it is currently having, so you should keep an eye out for mining RVN to become interesting soon again and not only at times of low difficulty for half a day every few days.
