The author of the popular SRBminer CryptoNight AMD GPU miner has just updated his new mining software called SRBMiner-MULTI CPU and AMD GPU Miner to version 0.1.1 Betta adding support for a few new algorithms and some bug fixes. The new miner is targeted at algorithms for CPU mining as well as some CPU and GPU ones for more recent AMD-based video cards (R9 2xx series and newer)… other than the CN-based algorithms that his other AMD GPU miner supports. The new algorithms include: yespowerltncg, yespowersugar, yespowerurx, yespower2b, eaglesong (nervos-ckb) algorithms and there is also added support for SHA with yespower algorithm family.

Do note that just like his CryptoNight GPU miner, this new CPU and GPU AMD miner is also available only for Windows (Linux version might be oming out soon) as a pre-compiled binary and there is a built-in developer fee as follows: 0% for blake2b and yespowerurx, 1.70% for rainforestv2 and 0.85% for all other supported algorithms. The miner does not yet have support for the new RandomX algorithm, but it will hopefully get one at least regarding CPU support in the future, you can find the initially supported algorithms below:

CPU-only algorithms:
– cpupower
– yescryptr16
– yescryptr32
– yescryptr8
– yespower
– yespowerlitb
– yespowerr16
– yespowerltncg
– yespowersugar
– yespowerurx
– yespower2b

CPU + GPU algorithms:
– blake2b
– blake2s
– keccak
– mtp
– rainforestv2
– yescrypt
– eaglesong

If you might be interested in MicroBitcoin’s (MBC) Rainforestv2 mining on Nvidia GPUs you might want to check out the latest optimized spmod ccminer fork that offers significantly faster performance than the publicly available official version from djm34 (rfv2 ccminer). A quick test shows that SP’s optimized miner (closed source binary available for Windows only) is about 4 times faster than the public open source version from djm34 on a GTX 1080 Ti GPU, so significant boost in performance is to be expected on other Nvidia GPUs as well.

The only drawback with MBC is that it is currently listed on just 2 small exchanges with very little volume, although with a hashrate a few times faster than before there could be some profit to be made at least initially, so you might want to check it out. It has a huge market capitalization as the project is not so new, but the trading volume is pretty low at the moment. The cmminer SPMOD for rfv2 is compiled with CUDA 9.2 and is a 64-bit only binary for Windows, so make sure you meet the requirements to run the miner software.

Update: And very soon after the release of the miner MicroBitcoin (MBC) has successfully forked to a new algorithm – yespower2b… a CPU friendly one and not GPU mining oriented apparently, so the optimized miner was usable for just a couple of hours before the fork. MBC apparently needs to keep all their information channels more up to date about tings such as upcoming hard forks!
