Hello, i have try your miner and i see your minner connect on 54.238.185.113, i want to know what is this connexion please. Thank you.

Hi, abc123
I am using GTX 690 for pts. I reported one issue here by my experience. The 0.3c and 0.4 version could not work properly for GTX690 which based on what I found, the 2nd GPU only has 700 Mb RAM occupied, while 0.3b version works properly, i.e., both GPUs take 1.2-1.3 Gb ram and give me 2100 cpm.
I am here just wondering if you have chance to optimize the performance like GTX 690 (I believe 590 should face same issue) which has 2 GPUs on one board. It will be appreciated.

hi abc123, i get one problem that  the miner runs on  Win8.1 64bit   physical machine with hyper-v service, and  it shows an error "sorry, this application cannot run under a virtual machine "
why?

  Miner fee (develpoer fee) is 5%, it is send to ypool.net and one of pts.rpool.net or ptspool.com randomly.
User can change the address if the pool's port has been changed or pool has been shutdown etc,
but I can't as the pool's address is hard-coded in my miner...
So there are two connections for develpoer, together 5%, it is the initial design which is designed in hurry,
although now I think 3 minutes each hour for developer maybe more appropriate.

Thanks for your report.

Thanks for your report. This may due to the wrong setting when I pack the miner, I am sorry for this. Try PtsGPUz v0.3b before new version release.

@abc123,

Any changes for SM 3.0 Nvidia cards like the 770? If not, do you think there will be any more significant performance increases for these cards?

Hello.
I using you new miner for my geat miner rig on AMD videocards.
6 GPUS: Radeon 7970+7870+5850+5850+5850+5850.

And i get from all videocards only 3200 collisions\minute.  :(
But When i using this miner: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=2410.0
i  received from five videocard 4000 collisions  (miner on 6st the card didn't manage to start).

PtsGPUz0.4b.exe -o ptspool.1gh.com:18120 -u PsT8AZjj2J7ivgxGyhYVZZC7WcJr2BNdi6 -p x

Just change for your own PTS address (Or feel free to leave mine there!! But you will make a bit less that way lolll)

Hi abc123, will be any performance improvement for Cuda? We all know AMD is much much faster. :-(

1. The performance of AMD cards other than Southern Islands (HD 7xxx) series
  with 2GB or more video memory increased greatly. In other words, the
  performance of AMD HD7xxx series cards with 1GB video memory and all HD6xxx
  series cards with 1GB or more video memory increased greatly.

There is no changes for Nvidia cards in version 0.4b and 0.4c.
I haven't tested my miner on GTX 770 till now. It is GTX 660 on my computer for develop, which is also SM 3.0.
I don't think more significant performance increases can be made on GTX 660, unless defects in PTS proof of work
algorithm dicovered. 10~20% performance increases may be possible, but needs a lot of work.

Hello.

i  received from five videocard 4000 collisions  (miner on 6st the card didn't manage to start).
    Please use version 0.4c released minutes ago. Version 0.4b is not optimized for AMD cards
other than Southern Islands (HD 7xxx) series with 2GB or more video memory.
    Version 0.4c is optimized and can be run on Evergreen (HD5xxx) series and later.

How can I run this miner on Ubuntu ? ???
No. It is for Windows only till now.

hi abc123, 1gh?
Still not supported. 1gh use a different version of xpt protocol.

Hi abc123, will be any performance improvement for Cuda? We all know AMD is much much faster. :-(
"AMD will is much much faster" is not true for SHA512, it is true for SHA256 and scrypt.
I don't think more significant performance increases can be made on GTX 660.
10~20% performance increases may be possible, but needs a lot of work.
Greate performance improvement for Tesla etc may be possible, or may not. But Tesla card is very expensive,
and whether the performance can be improved is uncertain, so I have not made decision to buy one.

My friend's R9 280X can have 3100/3500 (default/OC) cpm on clpts-v0.2.2, and my gtx690 has 2200 cpm in total. I believe this means AMD now is much faster in SHA 512, single chip beats my two. clpts also asks for 2 threads for each chip like your miner, apparently, it is much more efficient and optimized.
