Silent Miner is a new fork of ccminer for mining Ravencoin’s (RVN) X16r algorithm that tries to compete with the fastest z-enemy miner in terms of performance. Previous versions of the Silent Miner were a bit slower compared to the latest z-enemy 1.08, but the latest updates might indeed bring the performance to a very similar level. Silent Miner is a closed source miner available only for Windows for the moment and it comes with 1% developer fee built-in, so if you are not Ok with any of these there are plenty of open-source alternatives for X16r available out there that you can use.

Things are moving for the X16R algorithm used by Ravencoin (RVN) as well in terms of more and better miners for AMD GPUs as well as there are already quite a few options available for NVidia miners. There is now a new faster sgminer fork from KL0nLutiy (source) that is based on the recently released Avermore miner that promises 4-6% or even a bit more performance. The optimizations seems to be result from adding some optimized kernels from Wolf and they do seem to boost performance well, so if mining X16R on AMD definitely worth trying this miner. There is already an official Windows binary available with 1% developer fee with Linux binary expected to be made available soon, though you can compile from source as well.

The new zealot/enemy (z-enemy) Nvidia GPU miner for mining Ravencoin (RVN) X16r has been just updated to version 1.08 bringing some nice improvements. The new z-enemy version 1.08 comes with kernels speed improvements for GTX 1080 Ti that can bump the hashrate with +10% total according to the developer, the new version also comes with support for the slightly different X16S algorithm used by Pigeoncoin (PGN) along with some minor fixes. The update also introduces support for two more different algorithms – Bitcore (BTX) and Phi1612 used by LUXCoin, so you can test them as well as they might be faster than the miner you might be already using for them as well. The new release should also be more stable when it comes to huger power levels and overclocking as well, so you might also try to push your Nvidia GPUs a bit more to see if they will handle it.

The z-enemy-1.08 requires CUDA 9.0 support, so make sure you have up to date Nvidia video drivers that bring support for it. We are also reminding you that the z-enemy is a closed source miner available only as a binary release (Windows binary for the new version 1.08 for the moment) and the miner also has a 1% built-in developer fee in order to support the further development. If you are not Ok with that, there are a host of other open source alternatives available as Nvidia GPU miners for X16 and X16S that you might use, though with the latest update the z-enemy-1.08 should be the fastest for sure, so you might want to give it a try… we are already seeing a nice improvement on GTX 1080 Ti over the old 1.05a version, though the old version might be doing better on GTX 1080.
