The Rigel Nvidia GPU is a newcomer on the mining software program entrance and apparently is lower than two months outdated since its preliminary launch, helps only a few crypto algorithms, however seems to be good with it the terminal person interface it offers. We haven’t used it up till now, however it has attracted our consideration with the addition of help for the nexapow algorithm utilized by the NEXA challenge that’s these days ginning numerous consideration amongst miners and crypto merchants. The Nexapow mining helps comes with a 2% developer price, however it’s apparently properly price it because the miner manages to deliver up the hashrate on common about 10% in our fast exams in comparison with the efficiency that the earlier finest performer BzMiner manages to get you in the intervening time. Each BzMiner and the Rigel miner do solely help Nvidia GPUs for mining NEXA, if you wish to mine it on AMD GPUs it’s essential stick the third choice which is WildRig Multi that helps AMD and Nvidia GPUs for mining NEXA.
In the meanwhile the Rigel GPU miner is obtainable for each Home windows and Linux working methods, helps solely Nvidia video playing cards and helps mining of etchash (ETC), ethash (ETHW), kheavyhash (Kaspa), nexapow (Nexa) and zil (Zilliqa). The miner does help twin and triple mining with a GPU and reminiscence intensive cash from the supported algorithms and/or ZIL, however plainly at present nexapow + zil twin mining just isn’t working correctly, so that you would possibly need to maintain it and mine solely NEXA till an replace is launched. The miner additionally has help for command line overclocking and optimizing the efficiency of the GPU, and these additionally do appear to work fairly properly. If the Rigel miner is new to you identical to for us, then you definately would possibly need to mess around with it not just for NEXA mining. Kaspa (KAS) miners may additionally need to check out the miner, particularly Home windows customers as they’ll get barely higher efficiency with a really barely decrease developer price in comparison with lolMiner and nonetheless get the identical command line overclocking choices to maximise efficiency and decrease the ability utilization.
