The T-Rex miner is one of the newer GPU miners out there and it is an interesting option for Nvidia mining rig owners that are looking for profitable new coins based on less popular mining algorithms. Since we last covered the miner there have been some new additions of the supported mining algorithms, namely x16r, x16s and renesis along with some performance improvements in 0.5.7 for a few extra percent of performance in renesis, hsr, x16r, x16s, x17 and c11.

Performance wise we were a bit surprise that the X16R and X16S algorithms are not only now slower, but in fact at times may be even a bit faster at times compared to the latest z-enemy miner 1.14, at least what the miner reports. Also the performance for mining Renesis (RESS) is better than the official fork of ccminer for that algorithm, so you might want to check it out if you still haven’t done so.

Finally, just a reminder that T-Rex is a closed source miner and that there is 1% development fee built-in and you need to have a recent video driver installed as the binaries for both Linux and Windows are compiled for CUDA 9.1/9.2.

Lately we are seeing a number of new miners for GPUs that are not based on an already existing source code and are closed source releases with a small built-in developer fee. The T-Rex miner is one of those new miners and it is an interesting option for Nvidia GPU owners that are looking for profitable new coins based on less popular mining algorithms. The latest version T-Rex 0.5.1 does come with a binaries for both Windows and Linux and supports the following algorithms: lyra2z, phi2, hsr, c11, x17, phi and tribus offering good performance. The miner is intended for newer Nvidia GPUs such as Maxwell and the newest Pascal architectures, so it will not work on old Nvidia GPUs. There is 1% development fee built-in and you need to have a recent video driver installed as the binaries for both Linux and Windows are compiled for CUDA 9.1/9.2.

sgminer-x17-windows

There is now a new fork of sgminer 5.0 beta that brings x17 algorithm support for mining crypto currencies such as People’s Coin (PPL) on AMD-based GPUs. The new fork is by the developer of the PPL coin (source) and it completest the GPU support along with the already available ccminer X17 fork by djm34 for Nvidia GPUs. We have compiled a windows binary from the latest source of the miner and tested it on an AMD Radeon R9 280X GPU getting almost 2500 KHS. You can download and try the windows binary yourself from the link below. Do note it is recommended to be using the latest 14.6/14.7 beta drivers from AMD in order to get the best performance.
