Still playing with running 2 threads under Win8.1x64 w/R9 290's.
While I have noticed that -a 1 provides the best results on my gpu's,
so far running -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3 hasn't shown much more c/m's BUT
it has shown a huge increase in CPU usage. Using a single thread per
GPU my CPU would sit around 2% utilization, however when running
two threads per GPU my CPU is now at 63% utilization. I suspect that
clpts is having internal conflicts when running 2 threads under Win8.1x64.
Just reporting findings to help the community out. MANY thanks NaN for
the awesome software (again)!

I had the same CPU leap under windows 8.1 64bit as well... I just thought it was my crummy 270X cards, but now that you mention its a problem for the 290X there might be something to this... normally I am under 1% cpu usage for clpts, but when I launch a second copy on the same cards, I leap to 40% cpu usage split between the two instances...

Tested under power, increased from 780 watts to 880 watts, increase the percentage of 12.8%
Speeds from 11200 CPM raised to 14020 CPM, increase the percentage of 25%

4 * 280x win7 64bit

I am a bit confused over the correct scrypt to use.

Can you please show yours?

I am using 3 280X cards running @ 1150/1500 and I get 7880 cpm in a single screen. When I open a second thread I get 2330 cpm on that thread and the first thread slowly goes lower and lower untill it goes under the 7880 total cpm together. Should I use the -t 0,0,1,1,2,2 command? And also add -a 1 or not at all?

use the -t 0,0,1,1,2,2 -a 1

over

Maybe your Xorg.conf is screwed. Run aticonfig --initial --adapter=all as root and restart the computer.
and how to set gpu fans in linux?

NAN, this software is amazing, just more of a parameter can be 23 percent faster overall than the 0.2 version upgrade 64%, amazing, thank you!!

To run the miner on all four cards you have to use -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3. additionally you could add -a 1, which should be faster than -a 0 (which are the defaults) on  7970. There is no option "a".

I know the problem, the next single card is behind the 7970 fix release, other multi-card is still using the original 2.2 version, re-download the new version of the normal speed of 4 280x at 14000 CPM .WIN7 64

Hi,

This app is really nice but i have a problem on one computer. With the same drivers as every other, i have less cpm that on other. Tested on a fresh install on another part of my hard drive, it's working full power. The problem is on my personal install and don't want to format everyting. I'm running ubuntu 13.10.
I have try to clean, purge the drivers and reinstall but still less cpm that on a fresh install.

Do you have an idea what file i should check to have full cpm power like on a fresh install ?

I think R9 290(X) use two threads no effect in windows , same core and memory clock use two threads no different with one threads.

what is the difference between using 0,1,2,3 or the way you mentioned?

Yes, I used the -a 1 command, but in a multi-card rate declines and this is what I can not understand, my single cards rose to 7970 from 2380 to 2920 CPM, why it would fall under the multi-card
