This paper presents an improvement of the existing eighth-order derivative involved method [14] into derivative-free scheme, holding the order of convergence of the original method. Each member of the family requires only four function evaluations per iteration to achieve the eighth-order of convergence, while they are totally free from derivative evaluation. Hence, they agree with the optimality conjecture of Kung-Traub for providing multipoint iterations without memory. The proposed methods are compared with their closest competitors in a series of numerical experiments. Numerical experiments show that such derivative-free, high order schemes offer significant advantages over the derivative involved methods.
