There are already a number of forks of ccminer available for Nvidia GPU miners interested in mining Ravencoin (RVN) that uses the new X16r algorithm, but they are more generic in terms of algorithm support, while the Ravencoin Miner (source)tries to focus on RVN. The idea is to make user experience while mining Ravencoin better and not only focus on performance by providing a good hashrate. The latest few updates are making the output displayed by the miner more useful for the miners and we especially like the function that estimates the RVN earned per day based on the hashrate that the miner achieves on your rig as well as the Kraww! instead of yay!.

The Ravencoin Miner is open-source fork of ccminer with support for X16r, it can be compiled on Windows and Linux. Do note that the official Windows binary release available for download does come with 1% developer fee activated by default, so you can support the developer while mining. If you want to can disable the developer fee with by adding the command line option --donate 0, so no need to recompile from source with zero dev fee. Since we like what we see with the development of this miner though we would prefer to leave the developer fee on and support the further development of the miner and you might want to do the same.

Ocminer, the admin of the Suprnova mining pools, has been pretty actively maintaining and further improving his supminer fork of ccminer (source) adding numerous performance improvements for the X16r and X16S mining algorithms. So if you are mining either Ravencoin (RVN) that uses the X16r algorithm or Pigeoncoin (PGN) that uses the X16S algorithm you might want to try the supminer or update it if you already use an older version than the latest 1.5. In the last two days there were numerous performance updates regarding various algorithms that are a part of the X16r and X16S, so supminer could as well be the fastest miner for RVN and PGN at the moment. The miner is free and open-source with a 32-bit Windows binary release also available compiled for CUDA 9.1 (require R390 or newer Nvidia video drivers).

Another open-source fork of ccMiner called supminer (source) is now available, an optimized version from the operator of the Suprnova mining pools that promises up to 10% better performance than the recently released nevermore ccminer fork. The supminer ccMiner fork comes with with no developer fee, but you can show your support by mining Ravencoin (RVN) on Suprnova’s RVNCoin Pool. There is an official 32-bit Windows binary release available compiled with CUDA 9.1, so make sure you have up to date video drivers on your mining rigs. The code is compatible with Linux as well, though you will need to compile it yourself (make sure you have CUDA 9.1 installed to compile from source).

In theory the supminer should be faster than the other available ccminer forks with X16r support, but you should test and compare the different releases and see what works and performs best on your hardware. Feel free to report hashrates and stability on your mining rigs and how supminer compares to the nevermore and enemy miners. When comparing hashrates make sure you compare on the same algorithm, because hashrate varies depending on the currently switched to algorithm. Do note that the performance optimizations should not work only on the X16r algorithm, but should also help improve performance on other chained algorithms supported by ccminer.
