    Hello, good question. They are mostly forks of the same base code. One or the other offers a few other/different algorithms/coins to mine, so we included both, to cover all possible coins that miners want to mine. We have not found much difference between the two performance-wise.

    Also note, Doc did a shootout between xmr-stak and cryptodredge (an nvidia-only cryptonight/cryptonight variant miner) which found a slight benefit to using cryptodredge for nvidia users. We recommend this miner for stability and performance reasons if you are mining with nvidia only.

    Please update us on your findings!
