XMR-STAK-RX v1.0.1 — RandomX (Moner XMR) — This release only supports RandomX variants. This is the first bug fix release for xmr-stak-rx. There is no development fee of any kind.
November 30, Monero (XMR) will work hard on block
1978433 to switch to a new algorithm. The upcoming fork will change the
current CryptoNight R mining algorithm to the new Random X PoW
There are already several miners mining coins using the RandomX algorithm, one of which XMR-STAK-RX.
The developers of the XMR-STAK program released the initial version to support the RandomX
algorithm – the xmr-stak-rx program. In the new version there is no
commission to developers, it will probably be added later. This release
only supports various variants of the RandomX algorithm.
For AMD GPUs
Linux requires an AMD driver, ROCm is not supported. Graphic
NVIDIA processors require CUDA 9.0 or later. Minimum required
the amount of main memory on the GPU and / or CPU is ~ 3GiB.

Run xmr-stak-rx via bat file
You can run the program through the bat file too:
Example batch file settings:
xmr-stak-rx.exe -o xmr-eu.dwarfpool.com:8050 -u 44tLjmXrQNrWJ5NBsEj2R77ZBEgDa3fEe9GLpSf2FRmhexPvfYDUAB7EXX1Hdb3aMQ9FLqdJ56yaAhiXoRsceGJCRS3Jxkn.5d3c802ee0f8e12e4eb9792722b7816a42178aa29ef7477c138ddb940c55648d.rig1 -p x --noCPU
If you do not want to mine Monero / Random X after forking on video
cards, run xmr-stak-rx once before the fork and let the miner create
amd.txt and / or nvidia.txt configurations. Edit both files and set
“gpu_threads_conf”:  to disable the video cards and leave only the
