The latest SRBMiner-MULTI CPU and AMD GPU Miner version 0.1.7 brings support for the m7mv2 algorithm (CPU only) used by Magi Coin (XMG) along with some improvements such as better CPU auto configuration compared to earlier releases that had some issues using optimally all cores. We haven’t been following XMGM for quite some time now, but it is good that the project still continues and is developing, including forking to new algorithms such as the m7mv2. With the previous release SRBMiner-MULTI 0.1.6 the miner became a viable alternative to XMRig regarding RandomX support, so this is probably going to be generating a lot of interest as we get closer to the end of the month and the XMR fork to this new algorithm.

SRBMiner-MULTI CPU & AMD GPU Miner 0.1.7 beta changelog:
– Added ‘m7mv2’ algorithm (Magi coin – XMG)
– Cpu auto configuration should be better than on previous versions
– Added CPU data to API, also rearranged a few things in API
– Console window ‘Quick Edit’ mode disabled on miner start, so users won’t accidentally pause miner by clicking in the console window

The latest SRBMiner-MULTI CPU and AMD GPU Miner version 0.1.6 brings some improvement in CPU mining performance thanks to better utilization of processor threads, though it seems that further optimizations might be needed. In a quick test with RandomX-based algorithms we are seeing an improvement in hashrate compared to the previous SRBMiner-MULTI 0.1.5 that has introduced RandomX support, but full thread utilization may still not at 100% for all processors and performance is a bit lower when compared with XMRig on the same mining hardware, still it is good to see that efforts are being made for further improvements.

SRBMiner-MULTI CPU & AMD GPU Miner 0.1.6 beta changelog:
– Fixed threads binding on systems with more than 1 numa node
– Better auto configuration for cpu mining
– Previous two fixes should bring higher hashrates
– Added pool controlled algorithm switching capability (Monero Ocean)
– Added pool config parameter “algo_min_time” and --algo-min-time to cli (Monero Ocean)
– Added pool config parameter “keepalive” and --keepalive to cli

Update: There has been an update that fixes issues for SRBMiner-MULTI 0.1.6 that corrects the less than 100% load on all cores/threads of the processor, so now the performance is even better and should be pretty much the same as what XMRig currently offers on the same mining hardware as far as RandomX and its variants are concerned, so just redownload version 0.1.6 if you downloaded the initial release.

We have already mentioned the plans of ArQmA (ARQ) to fork to a new RandomX-based algorithm called RandomARQ and that has happened a few days ago and we have tried CPU mining the new algorithm. Since it is based on RandomX we expected to see significant advantage for the latest AMD’s Ryzen CPUs like we’ve seen with RandomX and some other variants of the algorithm used by other projects. To our surprise however Intel’s multi-core processors are actually not that far behind in terms of performance (a few times slower like on RandomX). Of course Intel is still slower, but the actual difference is not as much as we’ve seen so far and that is definitely good news for miners that have some spare Intel CPUs that might be interested in mining something based on RandomX.

We have tested performance using the latest XMRig miner and SRBMiner-MULTI miner with the seond one still performing slower as we have seen with other RandomX algorithms compared to XMRig. With an AMD Ryzen 3600 using XMRig we are getting around 22.8 KH/s while on Intel Core i7 6850K CPU we get about 17 KH/s, both being 6 core – 12 thread processors though the AMD one is much newer product. With SRBMiner-Multi the results were 13.4 KH/s with the AMD and 7.8 KH/s for the Intel CPU, so you better stick to XMRig for mining ARQ for now and you might want to also test your Intel processor(s) as well for the RandomARQ algo. The not so good news however is that profit for a single CPU mining ArQmA (ARQ) is well nonexistent, unless you do not pay for electricity… 20 USD cents per day for the Intel and 30 for the AMD processors. These dayly earnings could probably just cover your electricity costs if you have cheap electricity at 10 USD cents per kilowatt.

If you are still interested in the ArQmA (ARQ) crypto project and the RandomARQ algorithm…
