yeah, my 290X makes 2637 cpm / 1100 GPU / 1475 RAM
OC with afterburner
very good software: NaN :)
oh - i have some new numbers with my 290X:
1165 core / 1475 memory / 210 watt / 58 °C / watercooled
gives marvelous 2784 cpm

Good overclock you have there, I have a couple 290X which I will try to get to run at 2700 cpm on air. It should be doable, but I foresee temps >70.

my card is HIS 7950. i can run at 1800 CPM. but my sh/m just 6~8.
when i run the first time it reach ~25sh/m but after 1-2 day it fall to 6-8. CPM don't change.
i use V 0.1.2

The share-target of beeeeer.org has changed. It is four times more difficult than before to decrease server load but this should not affect payouts: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=234.msg34268#msg34268

Thanks for this! I tested it overnight on 4x 280X (3x ASUS DC2T and 1x Gigabyte Windforce 3X).

Total CPM: 8195 with 0.62% rejects...beautiful!

The temps are good, ranging from 68-72c on 40% fan speed in a hot room. 75%  fan speed on the Gigabyte card because it has horrible cooling.

Stock clocks on all cards with the DC2T's @ 1118mV and Windforce 3X @ 1200mV because it's a bitch. Could probably squeeze out a few more CPM so I will experiment with different clock speeds when I have the time for it.


I too would like to see optimized kernels for other cards in the future, so maybe if enough people makes donations to the dev he will be able to get whatever GPU he should need for testing. What he earns from dev fee on the miner is nothing.

I really like the idea of increasing the fee on the ypool version of your miner, to encourage the use of smaller pools like beer. I honestly think increasing the fee even more would be a good idea and a good thing for the PTS network.

If the 2 versions of your miner were beer and 1gh, then that would be great! We need to spread the hash rate around.

Another suggestion is to be able to setup a backup pool, so the miner for example would switch to 1gh should beer go down.

yeah, possible back-up-pool would be a great thing for the future!

one position to realize is the point, that the share-/hashrate of beeeeer-pool nearly doubled from the day your miner is at the front - i know it could be more to secure the network - but we have to start and see where it goes!

Exactly. I think we should spread the word about GPU mining at beer (and 1gh). Especially to current scrypt miners, as mining PTS is actually more profitable than certain coins. And this is not considering the value of owning ProtoShares for the upcoming stuff!

Thus I've pointed a few rigs at PTS and the rest at DGB (DigiByte).

So I decided to put 4 GPUs in the same rig instead of separating them (was using cases). Mashed together an open rig with some spare wood and started mining. I wanted to squeeze out a few more CPM so I decided to overclock all of the cards. Undervolting them was to follow after that.

Here is an album showing the progress: http://imgur.com/a/eoOoi

Final result after approx. 1 hour 30 min is 8494 CPM where 3/4 cards got successfully overclocked and undervoltaged. Temps are staying awesome at 62-68C.

On my gaming rig I have 1 Sapphire Dual-X OC 280X. At 1065/1500 and stock voltage it hits 2029 CPM stable. 72C in a case is absolutely nothing to complain about! Going to try and overclock it some more later on.

A new version with more than 5% performance increase is released. The performance of a R9 [email protected] is now 2450+ cpm
EDIT: I used Catalyst 13.12 on Linux
EDIT 2: I'm using 2 threads per GPU.

Which Catalyst version did you use ? I have lower col/min with the latest version of the miner on R9 280X and 7950. Tried both catalyst 13.2 and 14.1 and on 14.1 have worse performance.

Win 7x64 the same:
v0.2: 4150 cpm - 485 s/h
v0.2.1: 3700 cpm - 415 s/h
Catalyst 14.1 beta, 2x R280

I downloaded the windows v0.1.3 64bit file, but it says v0.1.2 when I start the program up... and I do have a roughly 2% drop in performance for c/m and sh/m with the same system after letting it run for a couple hours... copied the v.0.1.2 files back in, and its within 0.3% where it was before after just a few minutes.

windows 8.1 64bit
amd driver 13.251.0.0
R9 270 2GB & R9 270X 4GB

Thanks for your feedback. I also reduced the number of workgroups, perhaps this causes the performance regression on non R9 290(X) cards. I'm working on improving the performance of non R9 290(X) cards, too.
EDIT: Could someone test this? You have to take e.g. version 0.1.2 and have to overwrite gpuhash_gcn with the gpuhash_gcn-file of v0.1.3.

My 280x/290/290x are all slower for with version 0.1.3/0.2.1 x64 in windows 7.

Ex: 4x 290x = 10622 0.1.2 x64 and 10351 in 0.1.3 x64
