The T-Rex miner is one of the newer GPU miners out there and it is an interesting option for Nvidia mining rig owners that are looking for profitable new coins based on less popular mining algorithms. Since we last covered the miner there have been some new additions of the supported mining algorithms, namely x16r, x16s and renesis along with some performance improvements in 0.5.7 for a few extra percent of performance in renesis, hsr, x16r, x16s, x17 and c11.

Performance wise we were a bit surprise that the X16R and X16S algorithms are not only now slower, but in fact at times may be even a bit faster at times compared to the latest z-enemy miner 1.14, at least what the miner reports. Also the performance for mining Renesis (RESS) is better than the official fork of ccminer for that algorithm, so you might want to check it out if you still haven’t done so.

Finally, just a reminder that T-Rex is a closed source miner and that there is 1% development fee built-in and you need to have a recent video driver installed as the binaries for both Linux and Windows are compiled for CUDA 9.1/9.2.

There is a new altcoin called Renesis (RESS) out there that comes with a new Renesis hash that mixes 8 already familiar different hashing algorithms in a more complex and secure mining algorithm. If you are looking for something new and different to mine, especially if you have Nvidia GPUs, that uses a new algorithm and miners respectively, then you might want to check out RESS. There is already a ccminer fork with Renesis support, only official Windows binary release for now (source). Experimental sgminer for AMD is also available, but not very good performance wise for the moment compared to Nvidia GPUs (source). You should be aware that the coin has a significant premine and it is really important how will that be used for the future development of the project…

For more details about the Renesis (RESS) altcoin project check the announcement on Bitcointalk…
