The latest CryptoDredge Nvidia GPU miner version 0.11.0 comes with addditional performance improvements in a number of the supported algorithms as well as support for the X16R and X16S mining algorithms. You can expect to get faster hashrate with up to about 4% over the previous version in the following supported algorithms: BCD, BitCore, HMQ1725, Skunkhash and X17. There are also some improvements and fixes regarding Stratum support, so in overall you can expect to get faster performance and better stability with the new update. Do note that the CryptoDredge miner supports only Nvidia GPUs and is a closed source software that comes with 1% built-in developer fee and with binaries available for both Windows and Linux (CUDA 9.1/9.2/10.0).
The latest version 0.8.0 for the T-Rex Nvidia GPU miner brings support for one new PoW algorithm, namely the Geek (GeekCash Coin), a crypto project that has been available for a couple of months already, so not a new launch just to let you know. The update also comes with some relatively small performance improvements (1-3%) for the x16-like algorithms for both Nvidia GTX and RTX video cards. The latest version also introduces a dded watchdog functionality along with some cosmetic changes and some bug fixes and improvements to make the use of the miner easier. Do note that the T-Rex is a closed source miner with 1% development fee built-in. Also make sure you have a recent video driver installed (the latest for CUDA 10 support) as the binaries for both Linux and Windows are compiled for CUDA 9.1/9.2/10.0.
The newly announced Innosilicon Terminator3 ASIC miner capable of delivering up to 43 THS SHA256 mining hashrate with just 2100 Watts of power usage (48.83 W/TH) is definitely interesting technologically wise, though in the current market situation pre-ordering mining hardware for next year delivery is significantly more riskier. The Innosilicon Terminator3-43T is up for pre-orders at a price of $2279 USD or about half of Bitcoin at the current low prices, so buying with BTC may not be a wise idea at the moment. Delivery the 1st batch is expected to start between January 25th and February 25th, 2nd batch is for March 5th to March 15th, 2019. One thing is for sure however, the competition for more powerful and more efficient ASIC miners is heating up even though the market is declining at the moment, apparently everyone is already gearing up for when things pick back up.
Innosilicon Terminator3-43T Specifications:
– Hashrate: 43 TH/s (+/-5%)

The new version of the z-enemy 1.24 Nvidia GPU miner (ver. 2 already with some fixes) comes with massive performance boost for the new Nvidia RTX 2080, RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2070 GPUs in many of the supported algorithms, so make sure you update if you are already mining with the new RTX GPUs. There are also major optimizations for Skunk, Polytimos and Phi as well as some minor optimizations for Hex, X16r, X16s and Tribus that will work on older GPUs and not only on the latest generation that is still rarely used for mining. The latest update also adds Nvidia Volta architecture support, though that is not a very commonly used series of GPUs for crypto mining.
The latest z-enemy version 1.24 is available for CUDA 9.1, 9.2 and 10.0 for 64-bit Windows versions as well as CUDA 9.0, CUDA 9.1, CUDA 9.2 and CUDA 10 binaries for Linux (HiveOS, PiMP OS, EthOS & Ubuntu). Make sure that you have the respective recent video driver version installed for the CUDA version you want to use – 388+ for 9.1, 397+ for 9.2 and 411+ for CUDA 10.0. We remind you that z-enemy is a closed source miner available only as a binary release and it contains a 1% developer fee built-in to support further software development.

The development for the WildRig Multi AMD GPU miner continues with the latest 0.12.9 Beta bringing some more performance improvements for various supported algorithms on the table. It fixes the hashrate drops observed with X22i and adds performance improvements for that algorithm up to about 10% compared tot he 0.12.8 release that also brought some speed improvements for all algorithms. There is also a slight boost in performance for the X16r, X16s and X17 algorithms in the latest update.
Do note that the WildRig Multi currently supports only AMD GPUs with the newer RX series and VEGA out of the box and there is a separate download of binary kernels needed for older R9 series Fiji, Hawaii and Tonga. Unlike its predecessor the WildRig Multi miner does not support Nvidia GPUs, it will only work on AMD-based mining rigs. The WildRig Multi 0.12.9 Beta is currently available for Windows, Ubuntu Linux and HiveOS as a closed source binary and with a 2% developer fee built-in by default, though it can be reduced.
The latest CryptoDredge Nvidia GPU miner version 0.10.0 available for both Linux and Windows comes with improved performance in a number of the supported algorithms and adds support for the HMQ1725 algorithm. The hashrate improvements cover the X22i, BCD and X17 as well as the Skunkhash performance boost for the 0.9.7 if you have missed that update as well. Currently the CryptoDredge 0.10.0 is the fastest Nvidia GPU miner for the X22i algorithm used by the SUQA project, so if you are mining SUQA coins at the moment on Nvidia mining rigs with other software you should definitely switch to he latest CryptoDredge. Do note that the CryptoDredge miner supports only Nvidia GPUs and is a closed source software that comes with 1% built-in developer fee and with binaries available for both Windows and Linux (CUDA 9.1/9.2/10.0).
The latest update to the CryptoNight AMD GPU miner SRBMiner to version 1.7.0 brings improved hashrate in a number of the supported mining algorithms of up to about 10% depending on your GPU (most gains on VEGA) for the BitTube, Haven, Heavy and Italo algorithms as well as some small speed increase on CryptoNight V8 for VEGA GPUs. It also comes with support for a new mining algorithms – CN-Dark [CryoNote] and CN-Fest [Festival coin]. Do note that the developer fee is now ~0.85% for both normal mode and algorithm switching mode in the new version.

Bitmain has announced its next-generation 7nm miners – Antminer S15 and Antminer T15 and is already taking orders for the new devices with estimated shipping time for the second half of December. Both new Bitcoin ASIC miners have two different operating modes – a high-performance one for maximum hashrate and an energy saving mode that offers better energy efficiency with lower power usage and reduced hashrate. Antminer S15 is available for $1475 USD with a limit of 2 miner per user and Antminer T15 for $913 USD with a limit of 50 miners per user. The new miners do come with a built-in power supply included in the price, but be aware that apparently this PSU is only for 220V input power and also the output voltage is not the standard 12 used previously, so finding an alternative power supply may turn out to be a bit of a challenge.
The Antminer S15 high-performance mode can achieve a hash rate of 28 TH/s with a power efficiency as low as 57 J/TH (1596W); its energy-saving mode can improve power efficiency to 50 J/TH while maintaining a hash rate of 17 TH/s (850W). The Antminer T15 high-performance mode sees a hash rate of 23 TH/s and a power efficiency as low as 67 J/TH (1541W). Its energy-saving mode can improve power efficiency to 60 J/TH while maintaining a hash rate of 20 TH/s (1200W). The new Anminer ASIC miners come with a new high conversion power supply APW8 that has a non-standard 16-18V high-voltage output, so they can effectively reduce the power loss during the power conversion process, helping mining farms save on electricity costs.
The latest CryptoDredge Nvidia GPU miner version 0.9.6 for both Linux and Windows has introduced support for the new X22i algorithm used by the SUQA project that we’ve been following recently and CryptoDredge takes the top spot performance wise as it is a bit faster than what the T-Rex 0.7.2 miner offers. So if you are mining SUQA using the X22i algorithm on Nvidia GPUS, then definitely switch from T-Rex to CryptoDredge to get the best hashrate currently available. If you have missed the previous update 0.9.5 from a few days ago, it has added support for X17 and BitCore as well as some fixes for Exosis algorithm and a couple of bugs. Do note that the CryptoDredge miner supports only Nvidia GPUs and is a closed source software that comes with 1% built-in developer fee and with binaries available for both Windows and Linux (CUDA 9.1/9.2/10.0).
The new version of the z-enemy 1.23 Nvidia GPU miner comes with the first wave of optimizations for the new Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti GPUs and CUDA 10 that can provide up to 10-20% extra performance in various algorithms such as x16, x17, c11, hex, bitcore, xevan and others. There are also some minor performance optimizations as well for the GTX 10×0 series of GPUs, so some extra hashrate even if you do not own the new RTX generation yet. Do note that the CUDA 10 version should perform faster in most algorithms, even on older GPUs, but you need to make sure your mining rigs are with updated video drivers, the minimum required version is 415 or newer.
The latest z-enemy version 1.23 is available for CUDA 9.1, 9.2 and 10.0 for 64-bit Windows versions as well as CUDA 9.0, CUDA 9.1, CUDA 9.2 and CUDA 10 binaries for Linux (HiveOS, PiMP OS, EthOS & Ubuntu). We remind you that z-enemy is a closed source miner available only as a binary release and it contains a 1% developer fee built-in to support further software development.
