It has been a quite a while since the last update of tpruvot’s ccminer fork (source), but there it is a new version 2.3.1 available now that comes with support for Lyra2REv3, sha256q, exosis and Blake2b standard algorithms. The official binary is 64-bit Windows only built with CUDA 10 for SM3+ devices, SM 7.5 architecture is also supported, but doesn’t seem to bring any advantage, for others variants you can build from the source code as the miner is opensource. Do note that CUDA 10 support requires an Nvidia video driver version 410.48 or newer.

The most notable thing abut the new release is the support for Lyra2REv3 that will soon be used by the Vertcoin (VTC) after the upcoming hardfork expected to happen in less than two days. The fork should happen in around February 2nd as it is planned for block 1080000, so make sure you are ready with the required local wallet upgrade (if you are using one) as well as with a miner supporting the new Lyra2REv3 algorithm like the latest ccminer from tpruvot available for Nvidia GPU miners.

The latest T-Rex Nvidia GPU miner version 0.9.1 adds support for two new algorithms – X16RT (Veil) and SHA256Q (Pyrite) and comes with some minor performance improvements for x16r, bcd, x22i and other x16-like algorithms. There are also multiple web monitoring page improvements introduced, along with a Linux watchdog as a windows one has been available for a while already. Everyone currently mining Veil that uses the new X16RT algorithm might be interested in switching to T-Rex 0.9.1 as it seems to be even faster compared to the recently released CryptoDredge 0.16.0 miner that also added support for X16RT. If you are looking for AMD GPU support for these two newly added algorithms in the T-Rex miner, namely X16RT and SHA256Q, then you might want to check the latest WildRig Multi miner.

Do note that the T-Rex is a closed source miner with 1% development fee built-in. Also make sure you have a recent video driver installed (the latest for CUDA 10 support) as the binaries for both Linux and Windows are compiled for CUDA 9.1/9.2/10.0.
