NVIDIA miners can go for the already available T-Rex 011.0 miner with support for the X25 algo. The fork was supposed to happen on block 165,000 a couple of days ago, but it has been postponed for block 170,000, so a few more days until it hits. There are already a couple of mining pools running on the testnet with the X25x algo were you an give the new miners a go and see how they handle on your mining hardware. Do note that the X25x s heavier and requires more video memory compared to what the old X22i algorithm that is also supported by both WildRig Multi for AMD and T-Rex for Nvidia GPUs.
Supported AMD GPUs:
– GCN 2nd gen: R7 260, R9 290, R9 295X2, R7 360, R9 390

Unsupported AMD GPUs:
Pitcairn, Tahiti and other old cards of GCN 1st gen (like HD 78×0, HD 79×0, R7 265, R9 270, R9 280, R9 370, etc.) are not supported and won’t be, because they are too old and need additional work.
