The latest WildRig Multi Beta AMD GPU miner is now ready for the upcoming SUQA/SIN fork as well with support for the new X25x mining algorithm that will be used by the project after the fork. NVIDIA miners can go for the already available T-Rex 011.0 miner with support for the X25 algo. The fork was supposed to happen on block 165,000 a couple of days ago, but it has been postponed for block 170,000, so a few more days until it hits. There are already a couple of mining pools running on the testnet with the X25x algo were you an give the new miners a go and see how they handle on your mining hardware. Do note that the X25x s heavier and requires more video memory compared to what the old X22i algorithm that is also supported by both WildRig Multi for AMD and T-Rex for Nvidia GPUs.

Supported AMD GPUs:
– GCN 2nd gen: R7 260, R9 290, R9 295X2, R7 360, R9 390
– GCN 3rd gen: R9 285, R9 380, R9 Fury, R9 Nano
– GCN 4th gen: RX460, RX470, RX480, RX550, RX560, RX570, RX580, RX590
– GCN 5th gen: Vega 56, Vega 64, Radeon VII(but need some changes for better performance)

Unsupported AMD GPUs:
Pitcairn, Tahiti and other old cards of GCN 1st gen (like HD 78×0, HD 79×0, R7 265, R9 270, R9 280, R9 370, etc.) are not supported and won’t be, because they are too old and need additional work.

The latest WildRig Multi is currently available for Windows, Ubuntu Linux and HiveOS as a closed source binary and with a 2% developer fee built-in by default, though it can be reduced. wildkeccak and honeycomb algorithms are with fixed 2% dev fee with no possibility to change.

More updates from the WildRig Multi AMD GPU miner with the latest version 0.16.3 Beta bringing some more performance improvements for various supported and new algorithms. Starting with version 16.0 there is support for a number of new crypto algorithms including wildkeccak, honeycomb and xevan along with number of additional performance improvements and optimizations for these algorithms. The latest version continues to improve some hashorders for x16 family of algorithms (JH512 in middle, SIMD at start) and comes with special improvement for Vega on almost all of the supported algorithms (bcd, x16-fmaily, hex, x22i, etc.).

Do note that the WildRig Multi currently supports only AMD GPUs with the newer RX series and VEGA out of the box, while for older R9 series Fiji, Hawaii and Tonga there is a separate download available with binary kernels. The WildRig Multi 0.16.3 Beta is currently available for Windows, Ubuntu Linux and HiveOS as a closed source binary and with a 2% developer fee built-in by default, though it can be reduced. wildkeccak and honeycomb algorithms are with fixed 2% dev fee with no possibility to change.

The development of some of the ccMiner forks for Nvidia GPU miners didn’t seem very active visually in the last couple of months, especially with coins such as ZCash (ZEC) that came with their own miner releases, but it hasn’t been stopped. A few days ago tpruvot has made a pre-release version of his new ccMiner 2.0 available (source) for people interested in checking it out with probably a few small things left to be ironed out before the final 2.0 release is made available. So if you are using Nvidia GPUs to mine crypto coins then you might want to give it a try and don’t forget to send a tip to your local friendly ccMiner developer for a beer or two to show your support.

ccMiner 2.0 RC2 changelog:
– Handle cryptonight, wildkeccak and cryptonight-lite
– Add a series of new algorithms: timetravel, bastion, hmq1725, sha256t
– Import lyra2z from djm34 work…
– Rework the common skein512 (used in most algos except skein ;)
– Upgrade whirlpool algo with alexis version (2x faster)
– Store the share diff of second nonce(s) in most algos
– Hardware monitoring thread to get more accurate power readings
– Small changes for the quiet mode & max-log-rate to reduce logs noise
– Blake2s fix, variant built with CUDA 6.5 (not usable for lbry)

Do note that this release may not contain the best optimizations and fastest performance on all of the supported algorithms, so depending on what you are currently mining you may need to stick to another faster fork of ccMiner or not. Also the CUDA 6.5 binary release does not work for LBRY mining as noted in the changelog, so either use the 8.0 release or compile with 7.5 for mining that coin.
