After a number of 4.x beta releases here comes the XMRig 5.0.0 that is first stable unified 3 in 1 GPU+CPU release (first introduced in v4.5.0-beta), OpenCL support builtin into the miner and not require additional external dependencies on compile time, NVIDIA CUDA available as external CUDA plugin, for convenient, 3 in 1 downloads with recent CUDA version also provided (CUDA 10.1). This release is based on the 4.x.x beta series and include all features from v4.6.2-beta, so nothing that much new as features added in the latest stable release. Do note that version 5.0 has the algorithm cn/wow removed (previously used by Wownero) as the project now uses rx/wow – RandomWOW (RandomX variant for Wownero).
Lately we were following closely the XMRig miner software as the one mostly focused on the new RandomX CPU algorithm and its few already available variants, but now it seems that XMRig is getting some competition in the face of the SRBMiner-MULTI miner software that has recently added support for RandomX and variants and is already up to date in terms of performance. XMRig however still has the advantage of being open source and cross platform plus the Nvidia GPU support as SRBMiner-MULTI is a closed source miner available currently only for Windows with CPU and AMD GPU support for a more limited number of algorithms.
