There is a new version of the popular closed source miner z-enemy-1.10 for Nvidia GPU mining rigs that is widely used for RavenCoin (RVN) and the X16R algorithm it uses that brings 1-2% performance improvement as well as some fixes and improvements. Aside from the X16R the miner also supports X16S and a number of other algorithms that have been recently added and the performance improvements include all of the supported algorithms including also Tribus, Xevan, Vitality, Bitcore and Phi1612. 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. There are binary releases available for both Windows and Linux, though usually releases for Windows are made available first (official download links below).

The z-enemy miner was originally only X16R Nvidia GPU miner, then X16S support was added, but it seems that the future development will not only focus on those two algorithms alone as with each new version we are seeing not only performance improvements and bug fixes, but also new algorithms getting supported. The latest version 1.09 adds support for Xevan and Vitality in the a release as well as Tribus in the more recent b update along with up to about 10% performance increase due to optimizations. There are also some bug fixes and performance improvements that are targeted at improving stability and usability of the miner, do note that since z-enemy-1.09a release the miner also has support for failover pools (just add multiple instances of pool, user and password in the command line). The more recent z-enemy-1.09b release is more of a service release and is currently only available for Windows, while z-enemy-1.09a is also available in the form of Linux binaries.

We prefer to use the z-enemy miner for mining RavenCoin (RVN) even though there are many alternatives already available out there, though the miner will apparently evolve in a more usable and functional alternative to other more established miners out there as it adds support for more algorithms. 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. On a side note is seems that we now also have SP back in the game with open source miners with his optimized suprminer fork for X16R and X16S, so you might want to give it a go as well, though it does not seem to be faster than the latest z-enemy miner.

Silent Miner is a new fork of ccminer for mining Ravencoin’s (RVN) X16r algorithm that tries to compete with the fastest z-enemy miner in terms of performance. Previous versions of the Silent Miner were a bit slower compared to the latest z-enemy 1.08, but the latest updates might indeed bring the performance to a very similar level. Silent Miner is a closed source miner available only for Windows for the moment and it comes with 1% developer fee built-in, so if you are not Ok with any of these there are plenty of open-source alternatives for X16r available out there that you can use.
