Re: fast AMD OpenCL PTS miner released

so we roughly know... using NaN's pts miner...

R9 270X = about 100 watt usage 1000 cpm
R9 290X = about 200 watt usage 3000 cpm

Anyone have a watt usage on the R9 280X?

is it as simple as splitting the difference at about 150 watts and 2000cpm?

Hi there,

my rig is drawing ~ 500 Watts according to Corsair Link when shuffling 5500 c/m.
GPU: 3 x 280x
CPU: AMD Sempron 145

How do you measure Watts per GPU??

Well the way I do it is with a digital display on my UPS device... I start the system with no cards, get a base wattage, then I add 1 card and start using it, check the wattage... then I repeat this with 2 3 4 cards... and check to make sure the increase in-between each card is relatively the same...

alternatively if you don't want to rip your rig apart... start it up without mining... you'll get your base while the cards are in low power mode since they aren't being used... then start mining with just 1 card, take a reading, then start mining with 2 cards, take a reading, then mine with all 3 cards and take a reading... then check the wattage between each one and you can get a relatively accurate idea what its using when mining... just be sure to wait until you reach maximum operating temperature so the fan is going as fast as its going to go... should be able to see a pattern between each card...

looking at your total wattage... looks like a fair guess would probably be around 150 watts each...

No. Shall I compile one for you (I didn't compile one because my system has no installed 32bit libraries)?

I released a fast OpenCL PTS-miner for AMD GPUs. The performance is 2300+ c/m on a R9 [email protected] and about 1100c/m on a 7870, so that this seems to be the fastest released miner. Binaries are available for Windows and 64bit-Linux.
DOWNLOAD v0.1.2: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/d5qvec5kxlug1bm/FR3Y_78Eag connects to the beeeeer.org pool, which has 2.5% pool fees. The developer fees for this version are 7/367 ~ 1.9%.
DOWNLOAD v0.2: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1ioh00043hqbsbk/wTptW3dr22 connects to the ypool.net pool, which has 5% pool fees. The developer fees for this version are 2.5% to make smaller pools more attractive. The developer fees are automatically transferred by ypool.net to the developer so the user's miner does not need to reconnect to support the developer.

UPDATE 10: version v0.2 of the miner is released, which supports the pool on ypool.net. If you want to connect to beeeeer.org you should use v.0.1.2. The miner does NOT support the 1GH-pool yet because the pool does not implement the latest xpt-protocol but 1GH-pool support is still planned. EDIT There was a typo in the README. The usage of v0.2 is <exe-name> -u <username>.<worker> -p <pass> -t <GPU DeviceID list>

known issues: The miner does not run if the installed Catalyst driver is too old. Multi-GPU support works for most users but sometimes the miner won't work if there are different cards installed. Then you have to run an instance of the miner on each card. The miner is not optimized to run on 5000 and 6000 series GPUs and needs about 1.2GB free GPU RAM.

NOTE 1: When you post errors I appreciate some information about the operating system (Windows or Linux / 32bit or 64bit is sufficient) and the used Catalyst driver. Furthermore you should suppress the section between the stars of the output of the miner excluding the miner version (at the moment it hasn't any relevance but it will become important in the future).

NOTE 2: Please make sure that you are not using an outdated Catalyst version and read the README.



2300+ c/m on a R9 [email protected] ? :o

My 290 run @1025/1500  only 2060c/m .....what's your 290's memory frequency ?

Anyone try this with a 7990?

ANyway why are AMD guys mining PTS, does it not make more sense to mine doge or something? Or is PTS actually turning you a higher profit?

270X shows 99% GPU Load (930/1500) @ 50% Fan Speed but when I monitor the 290X I see 930 Core and Memory changes from 1500 to 300 every 10-15 seconds and the GPU load shows as 0% (while putting out 2300-2400c/m) - go figure.  The 290X shows between 90W and 143W.

Same problem here,my 290's memory frequency changes from 1500 to 300 every 10-15 seconds too while 7950 runs solid @1080/1550 :o

The 7000 series gpus and the R9 290(X) have completely different memory interfaces and my kernels do not need all of the available bandwidth.

I'm using two threads per gpu and there is no running Xserver. the memory frequency is 1250 mhz (the defaults) and the gpu is at 1025mhz

push my 290 to 1100/1250 and get 2300 c/m now, you are on linux or windows?

Linux. I doubt that your R9 290 actually runs at 1100mhz or did you flash the card's firmware?

i use msi afterburner to oc and use gpuz to check the real frequency it shows the core runs at 1100

1gh now accept yam cpu miner.
mine = xpt2h://YOUR-PTS-ADDRESS:[email protected]:18120:18121:18122:18123/pts
can we use ypool miner for 1gh? will be easy add 1gh support too?

yeah, my 290X makes 2637 cpm / 1100 GPU / 1475 RAM
OC with afterburner
very good software: NaN :)

mining 35s for author... I hope this actually lands on the found blocks once in a while heh... so what does it do anyhow, just switch the user address on the beeeeer.org pool and then convert back for the 30min? looks like today has been a good day so far over there... been running v0.1.2 for I think 48 hours straight now without any issues...

whats on the to-do list for your next version?

The miner simply switches the payout-addresses so shares are send 35s to my address on beeeeer.org and 30min to the user's address. The shares found during the first minute after startup are send to the user.
