The latest Nanominer 1.1.0 by Nanopool comes with support for the new CryptoNight R algorithm used after the recent Monero (XMR) fork, though for now it is only supported on Nvidia GPUs. Nanominer supports Ethash, CryptoNight (v6, v7, v8, R), Ubqhash on GPU and and RandomHash/PASC on CPU at the same time (dual mining mode), though only CryptoNight R and Ethash are supported on Nvidia GPUs, the rest of the algorithms are AMD only. Performance wise the Nanominer 1.1.0 is faster on GTX 1080 Ti according on our tests compared to what the latest XMR-Stak 2.10.0 is delivering and the difference is not small… about 80 hashes more with the Nanominer for about 840+ H/s mining CryptoNight R.

Nanominer is available for both Linux and Windows, it is a closed source miner that has a 1% developer fee for the GPU supported algorithms and 3% for RandomHash on CPU. The Nanominer miner does work on all pools for the supported algorithms and is not limited only to the mining pools provided by Nanopool, so you are not limited to use only their services.

Team Red Miner is a performance optimized cryptocurrency miner for AMD GPUs with support for lyra2rev3, lyra2z, phi2, CryptoNight v8 (CNv2) and CryptoNight R (CNv4) available for both Windows and Linux operating systems. The miner is in beta and is constantly in development, it is a closed source miner with the following developer fees: Cryptonight v8 – 2.5%, Cryptonight R – 2.5%, Lyra2rev3 – 2.5%, Lyra2z – 3%, Phi2 – 3%. Our tests of the latest release with CryptoNight R support for mining Monero (XMR) after the recent fork are showing that the performance we get on AMD RX 580 8GB is pretty much the same as on other popular miners for AMD like the latest XMR-Stak or SRBminer, though the dev fee on the Team Red Miner is a bit higher.

With Monero (XMR) forking in a day to te new CNv4 (CryptoNight R) algorithm there are more GPU miners getting ready and supporting the new algorithm and the latest XMR-Stak is no exception. It might not be the first to support CryptoNight R as SRBMiner has been available for a while for AMD with CNv4 support. XMR-Stak 2.10.0 however does offer support not only for AMD GPUs, but also for Nvidia and even CPU miners, so it is your universal CryptoNight R miner. Performance wise in our initial tests XMR-Stak is just slightly faster in terms of hashrate compared to the latest SRBMiner 1.8.0, but the advantage is neglectable and the difference with the default developer fee eats away the additional hashrate you get.

Of course it also supports number of other CryptoNight variants including the new cryptonight_v8_reversewaltz used by Graft with their recent fork and pretty much any other more popular CN variant out there as well. Do note however that the official binary release comes with a 2% development fee, you can compile the miner yourself from source (it is open source) with different or even no developer fee however should you decide to.
