I tested Catalyst 14.6 on Linux
    R9 [email protected]/1500MHz: >5600 cpm with -a 0
    R9 [email protected]: ~5250 cpm with -a 1

This looks promising but the Windows driver for R9 290(X) still seems to be slower than the Linux driver.

win 7 64x driver 14.6

I use the monitor at the R 290X

I use the command line
setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 1
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PRECENT 100
these I have taken from the mines bfgminer description for Scrypt

This ART value is important for NAN
the lower is better

you need min 1200 shares for an optimal result, more is better for correct average value on. you reach only after a very long time and many shares. let it run

Some tests with Catalyst 14.6 on Windows 7 x86_64 (at least >30 minutes to stabilize or +1200 shares - Done.. aborted. I had to change hardware due to local temperature... test env is different now..):
@Mario241077 Thanks for the nice number =)

    EDIT: I think Mario241077 is right here.. it takes a lot more time to stabilize.. but at the end.. the result is better, in average I would say (still testing with GPU usage for main adapter).

NOTE: Just noticed that I need no more to switch displays to activate the GPUs without screen connected. =) I am not sure if it was with this new beta. Very handy. This might have been introduced with the Mantle version.

Disclaimer: My results might differ a bit in max/min ration because I am also using CPU to other purposes.. but leaving at least 50% of the logical cores free. I will try to set the max I see and the min.. after stabilization. The results include using the 290X for the display adapter.

you need about 1200 shares for an optimal result

Yes.. for -a 3 specially... for the -a 1 and 0 it was somehow quicker to stabilize or the result approaches faster to the stable one (more than 4h running.. with max/min values)..

I can confirm a very big boost in performance from the 14.6 Catalyst on ubuntu linux, last I checked I was getting over 5900 c/m for each 280X with -a 0, it still hasn't stabilized yet, while I was averaging around 5200 c/m with the 14.4 catalyst version.

For the ones that use the GPU for multiple purposes... (and only for 290/X models) i found out that using "-a 3" it's actually a more performer mode for mining... but also more prioritizing for the same realm. Giving you little usage for other multipurpose activities: games, video accelerated streaming... and everything that uses about less than 50% of your the GPU.

I found that the best option for multipurpose/mining is "-a 0".... as I have been using till now without problems. The observation taken is simple:

"The mining is running over the background.. and when I start watching a film with GPU acceleration, it crackles a bit until it adapts to the new workload.. then it settles just right for it.." - using for example "splash PRO EX".

Using "-a 3" you will experience a millisecond lag.. periodically... let's say.. less than half second period, where your eye experience a freeze over the frame.

Is this true for newer versions of CPU/BOARDS/RAM etc?... I have a X58 with XEON 4Cores and 1600 DDR3.

Disclaimer... This is a result of several software and hardware experiences.. ones more noticeable than others... but.. they all conclude that the most adaptable choice is the one I mention (-a 0).

Just found something very appealing for users of 290/X.... and above...

Summer is coming and I am waiting for my AC upgrade... in order to run overclocked GPUs and CPUs.. without burning at home.. so.. super experiments.. come to place.. where you try to lower the temps at all cost!

I have set the 290X (via AMD driver).. to -50% power.. and -47.x% GPU clock... and xarammmmm the results! AMAZIMG!!!

This is... brutal efficiency! Temps when from 72 ºC -> 60 ºC (on die with over 28ºC temps ambient)!! The current AMPs went even further!.. 82 -> 60 ºC!!! Power consumption varies.. as the card is constantly changing clocks... but.. in average.. is a lot less.. I would say.. 40% less power consumption.. So.. guys..! more viability to 290/X GPUs than with the older ones.. the 270X can't do the same...

But I would like to ear from your results... mines are like this:

Code: [Select]
13:37:17 | 4256 c/m | 8.366 sh/m | VL: 5742 (98.98%) | RJ: 56 (0.97%) | ST: 3 (0.05%) | ART: 52.5 ms
 (47.62/37.61/23.32)

These results you're getting are similar to mine, but when I want to lower temperature I just use one thread.

POW of NRS has ended .

Is it possible to obtain a number of Pool to mine PTS instead on YPOOL , please ?

Thanks in advance.
