New XMRig 6.0.0-Beta Miner With KAWPOW Support for AMD and Nvidia GPUs

The latest release of the XMRig 6.0.0-Beta comes with support for the KAWPOW algorithm used by Ravencoin (RVN) for both AMD and Nvidia GPUs. Although we are often associating XMRig with CPU mining for RandomX, it also supports a number of algorithms and mining on GPUs as well. We have tried KAWPOW support and frankly had some trouble making it work on two different Radeon RX 580 mining rigs as well as one GTX 1080 Ti rig, so we are back to using TeamRedMiner as the best performing solution for AMD GPUs and T-Rex for Nvidia for the moment as…

New SRBMiner-MULTI Miner 0.4.5 With Support for Epic Cash (EPIC)

The latest SRBMiner-MULTI CPU and AMD GPU Miner version 0.4.5 adds support for the RandomX-based RandomEpic algorithm used by the Epic Cash (EPIC) crypto project for both solo and poo mining. There are also some performance improvements for the RandomX algorithm for CPUs as well as for Ethash and Ubqhash on AMD VEGA GPUs. You also get a number of fixes and new features, the full changelog is included below: SRBMiner-MULTI CPU & AMD GPU Miner 0.4.5 changelog: – Added ‘randomepic’ algorithm (EpicCash RandomX) solo/pool – ‘ethash’ and ‘ubqhash’ algorithm faster ~1.5% on Vega – ‘RandomX’ algorithm improvements – Fixed…

XMR-STAK-RX 1.0.5 With Kevacoin (KEVA) and Safex Cash (SFX) Mining Support

The XMR-STAK-RX RandomX miner has been updated to version 1.0.5 bringing support for two crypto projects that use a variation of the RandomX CPU mining algorithm – Kevacoin (KEVA) and Safex Cash (SFX). Kevacoin (KEVA) uses the RandomKEVA and Safex Cash (SFX) uses the RandomSFX algorithms respectively, though both are based on the RandomX algorithm as a base and are doing better performance wise on recent AMD Ryzen CPUs than on Intel processors. Alternative miners with support for RandomX and the RandomKEVA RandomSFX are SRBMiner-MULTI and XMRig, though have in mind that the XMR-STAK-RX miner does not have a development…

CPU Mining With the cpuminer-opt Free and Open Source Miner

It has been a while since we last covered the cpuminer-opt software, but the good news is that its development hasn’t stopped and this should probably be your go to miner as far as CPU mineable crypto coins are concerned. Do note that cpuminer-opt is an open source mining software for processor mining that supports a lot of algorithms and that list is growing, though you will most likely be using just a couple of them nowadays. The miner has optimizations for older and newer AMD and Intel processors, so make sure you try the binary that is intended for…
