I am getting 6830 col/m on 5x Sapphire 7950 with stock settings. That is ~1370 col/m. I have Celeron with 4Gb Ram.

Does anybody knows, how to tweak performance to get closer to 1800 col/m as some users are reporting.

I am using Ubuntu 13.1 with the latest drivers and miner v0.1.3.
Please use v0.1.2 until the next version is released. This should be fastest on your GPU. I'm working on an update with huge performance gains.

v. 0.1.2 with some tweaks I managed to squeeze out 7250 col /m
v. 0.1.4 I am  getting 9300col/m whoa

LOOP UNROLL: pragma unroll (line 222)
    Unrolled as requested!

after 10s this msg shown, the program closed by itself>

 My com have 4g of Ram and Radeon hd 5400 GPU 
can someone help me to figure out that?

R9 290 @1025Mhz 
Catalyst 13.12
memory clock @????
-a @??
HOW can be 3800c/m
why i just can be 3000c/m @1025   memory:1250 -a 1 Catalyst 13.12

R9 R290, Catalyst 13.12, Powertune +20%, [email protected] and [email protected] with Linux-v0.1.4 running -a 0, two threads per GPU and no other load. So far, no one was able to reproduce this in Windows but it should be possible because even a 280X easily hits more than 2700cpm. Still wondering because yesterday a user with 2 R9 290X reported only about 6100 cpm.

It is one card with 2 GB RAM. I edited the .bat file to:

clpts_x86-64 -u username.workername -p password -t 0

but still having the same problem. It keeps repeating:

Connected to server using x.pushthough(xpt) protocol
The login is configured for and unsupported algorithm.
Make sure you miner login details are correct


i have this VGA
VGA Sapphire Ati AMD Radeon HD 7770 Core 1000MHz Memory GDDR5 4500MHz 1GB DVI HDMI DP

and even if it works slower than others, i get 460-470 c/m with algorithm 1

with clock GPU at 1180 MHz
mem clock 1300 MHZ
power control 10%

i may say the new miner has improved 20-30 c/m but i'm not so sure

i created a bat with a code like this
<your path to the file>\clpts_x86-64.exe -o ypool.net -u user -p passw -t 0 -a 1
pause

i hope someone can find it useful

I think I'm going to try out Linux and see what my 2x 290X get on it. I currently get ~6100 cpm on Windows with your new version.

Edit: Actually, I was only running 1 thread per GPU. So each was netting me about 3050 cpm. I'm going to try out two threads per GPU next.

RTFM! The miner needs at least 1.2 GB GPU-RAM. Your card has only one, so it is not supported. I guess that the next version will support 1GB cards.

Please use [email protected] first because that is best normally. after that you can try [email protected]

Yeah! i know that, i wasn't complaining. Just trying to help the other user who got problem with the same card. By now i think it works really fine, much better than the previous miner i used!! Great job!

I released a new version with large performance improvements. The syntax of the command line options of v0.1.x has changed and one has to specify the device IDs like in v0.2.x (see README). Furthermore, the command line option -a was introduced to select an algorithm. I guess that -a 0 or -a 2 should be fastest on R9 290(X) and -a 1 or -a 3 should be best for non-R9 290(X) cards.

clpts v0.1.4 win 64bit
Windows 8.1 64bit
AMD driver 13.251.0.0
two R9 270 2GB (975mhz / 1400mhz stock)
two R9 270X 4GB (1100mhz / 1400mhz stock)

30min test for each (previous cpm was on v0.1.2)

4463 to 5590 (-a 0)
4463 to 5827 (-a 1) -- update: after 2 hours I am getting 5840, rejections increased to 1.26%
4463 to 5579 (-a 2)
4463 to 5750 (-a 3)

so looks like a solid 25% increase across the board, 30% for option 1 on the R9 270 series cards works best as mentioned... now that I've done the 30min test for each option... I'll burn in for a couple hours on option 1 and check back in a couple hours...

do you think it would be a fair test if I ran 4 copies of clpts at the same time, one on each card? with each option? (thinking I could try all 4 options at once for several hours at the same time) or is it better to run one instance and check hours later to get a real read of the program? I'm not sure how its internals function if it would make any difference...

I did notice a roughly 20 watt increase over 4 cards, seems to be using slightly more memory on the cards.

I have 6x 270x coming in soon and I was wondering what driver version/ windows would be best to have 6 of them running?

Figured I'd register to share my experience with 7850, heads up to the dev if anything :)

1.2 is running @ ~870 c/m sometimes up to 900

1.4 is maxing out at 390

Thanks for a cool piece of software !

I tried two threads per GPU and still only managed ~6100 with 2x R9 290X @ 1040MHz/1500Mhz
