This test was conducted by the MinerMore sysop Traysi over the course of exactly 24 hours from 2020-05-03 10:00:00 UTC until 2020-05-03 10:00:00. This is a followup from a previous test.

Each of the 4 miner software programs were assigned to a GPU in the system. Every 2 hours this assignment was changed. Starting at 10:00 the assignment was:
At 12:00 the miners were stopped and restarted with a new assignment of:
At 14:00 the miners were stopped and restarted with a new assignment of:
At 16:00 the miners were stopped and restarted with a new assignment of:
And finally at 18:00 the miners were restarted with their original assignment and the loop continued as described above. In this way, after 24 hours, each miner had mined for an equal amount of time on each GPU in the system. The data was collected on the pool side and the number of accepted shares is what counted towards performance. This means that when you look at the report below, these numbers reflect the final performance of the miner even after the dev fee is taken into account.
t-rex performed the best in this test. Once again kawpowminer outperformed ttminer and nbminer, but the newly released t-rex somehow outperformed them all. The difference was substantial enough that at this time t-rex may be the best option to choose for use on nvidia cards at the time of the fork on May 6th. Future updates to miner software will be tested by Traysi but for now this is the best information we have.
It is worth noting that this test isolated each miner to a single GPU. The effectiveness of the miners when run on multiple GPUs is uncertain and a future test may be conducted with trex and kawpowminer each being given 2 GPUs to work with.
