The latest WildRig Multi 0.24.0 Beta AMD GPU miner is just what the doctor ordered for Ravencoin (RVN) miners with AMD GPU as it is taking the top spot in terms of hashrate with the latest performance updates. At least with the default settings it is on par with what the previous fastest AMD miner for KAWPOW – nanominer manages to provide you in terms of hashrate on RX 4×0/5×0 series of GPUs, as far as the newer Navi cards are concerned it is possible that the latest nanominer is still better.
The new version also brings two alternative kernels for KAWPOW that you can try to see if you can get a bit of extra performance from your hardware, you can set them with the
--progpow-kernel command line option with values 1 and 2 respectively. The second one worked better in our tests providing us with higher and more stable hashrate compared to the first and the default kernel.
The latest WildRig Multi is currently available for Windows, Ubuntu Linux and HiveOS as a closed source binary and with a 1% developer fee built-in by default, however have in mind that the following algorithms are still with 2% dev fee – lyra2TDC, sha256csm, x17r and wildkeccak.
