We once mentioned about CryptoDredge NVIDIA miner. But that’s long ago when the miner was in its early stage and most information in that publication is outdated. Since then this miner has got numerous updates and it includes several new features, performance improvements, bug fixes and support for number of new algorithms.
CryptoDredge is one of the highly optimized mining software that fully utilizes modern NVIDIA GPUs. It performs well, runs stable and has got support for multiple Proof of Work algorithms. It is one of the fastest Lyra2z miner and it performs efficiently on Lyra2Rev2 algorithm. Also majority of users who are mining PHI2 (LuxCoin) are seem to be using CryptoDredge mining software. In addition to these it is the most easy to configure and easy to use NVIDIA miner that supports various CryptoNight algorithms and variants including the new CryptoNight V8 algorithm. Now there is another update; CryptoDredge v0.9.4 which adds few more new mining algorithms to the list.
CryptoDredge supported algorithms and performance
As of version 0.9.5; CryptoDredge NVIDIA GPU miner supports the following algorithms.
Allium - Garlicoin BCD - Bitcoin Diamond (New) Blake2s C11 - C11 coins (New) CryptoNight Lite - Aeon coin CryptoNight Fast - Masari Mining CryptoNight Haven - Haven Protocol CryptoNight Heavy - Loki Mining CryptoNightSaber - BitTube(IPBC) CryptoNightv7 - Old CryptoNightv8 - Monero Exosis - (New)
Lbk3 Lyra2Rev2 - Lyra2Rev2 coins Lyra2z - Lyra2z coins NeoScrypt - NeoScrypt coins PHI1612 - PHI1612 coins PHI2 - LuxCoin Polytimos - (New) Skein Skunkhash - Skunkhash Algorithm Stellite - Stellite Mining Tribus - Tribus coins X17 - X17 coins (New) Bitcore - (New)
CryptoDredge is a NVIDIA only GPU miner. It supports CUDA 9.1, CUDA 9.2, CUDA 10.0 and is available for both Windows as well as Linux operating systems. The latest released version is CryptoDredge 0.9.4 which in addition to 4 new algorithms (BCD, C11, Exosis and Polytimos) has also got slight performance improvements. Whether you are mining any of the above listed algorithms or if you are using previous release version then give CryptoDredge 0.9.4 a try.
But before you go ahead and use this we’d like to remind you that this miner is a closed source software which is only available as binary release. Also this miner comes with a build in fee of 1% to further support the development.

Followed by 0.9.4 here is another update; CryptoDredge 0.9.5 which includes 2 new algorithms. This miner now supports Bitcore and X17 algorithm. Additionally the new version 0.9.5 has fixed Exosis algorithm and several other bugs. If you are using 0.9.4 or any other previous release then update your miners to 0.9.5.
