The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) has two main operating modes with heavy ions and polarized protons respectively. In addition to a continuous increase in the bunch intensity in all modes, two major new systems were completed recently mitigating the main luminosity limit and leading to significant performance improvements. For heavy ion operation stochastic cooling mitigates the effects of intrabeam scattering, and for polarized proton operation head-on beam-beam compensation mitigated the beam-beam effect. We present the performance increases with these upgrades for heavy ions and polarized protons, as well as an overview of all operating modes past and planned.
