The latest zealot/enemy-1.15a (z-enemy) from Dk and Enemy was released soon after the previous version 1.14 was made publicly available and it brings more performance improvements as well as a support for a new mining algorithm. The hashrate has been further increased with about 1 to 5% for the following algorithms: X16, X17, HSR, Renesis, Xevan, Sonoa, Aergo, Poly, Phi1612. With these performance improvements z-enemy might once more be the fastest X16 miner out there, though for Renesis, another recently added algorithm the latest T-Rex miner is still faster in terms of performance.

The new z-enemy 1.15 has also added support for the new HEX mining algorithm that has been announced just a few days ago as introduced by the XDNA project. The working principle of HEX is calculating the block hash with a pseudo-random sequence of 16 different algorithms (kernels): BLAKE / BMW / GROESTL / JH / KECCAK / SKEIN / LUFFA / CUBEHASH / SHAVITE / SIMD / ECHO / HAMSI / FUGUE / SHABAL / WHIRLPOOL / SHA2. The latest public release of z-enemy-1.15a has a fix for the difficulty and allows you to use maximum intensity of up to 25 in order to further increase the performance of HEX with another +7% to +15% if your GPUs can handle the extra load properly. If you are looking for new coins using new mining algorithms, then XDNA and HEX might be an interesting choice for you, though XDNA is actually not a new coin release, it has been available for a while, just the HEX algorithm is new.

It has been a while since sp has released open source and free code for a faster miner, but better late than never. The latest Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #5 (source) promises 10% increase in performance over the previous release for X16R and X16S algorithms thanks to numerous optimizations to the used algorithms like echo, shabal, simd, sha512, fugue, shavite, groestl and skein. The latest version also has added support for higher intensity values, so you can experiment with that to maybe squeeze some additional performance. 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.

Comparing the performance of the new Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #5 miner to the recently released z-enemy 1.14 miner it is still a bit slower. Maybe it is on par with the previous release 1.12 of z-enemy in terms of hashrate, 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, surprisingly, the Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #5 miner is free, open source and with no dev fee.

The latest update of the z-enemy to version 1.14 comes with nice performance boost in the different supported algorithms along with some slight fixes and improvements. You can expect up to 10% percent increase in the X16 algorithms, up to 15-25% for Tribus, about 10% for X17, C11, PHI1612, Aergo, Sonoa as well as about 5% for Xevan, Phi, Poly. 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 9.1 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.
