i used 3x r9 280x dual x oc

is this good with collisions/min: 4950.?

Ok i fixed my 300 cpm issue... wrong cartalyst.

I get ~2900 cpm on a Powercolor 290x now. I thought it should be around 4000... whats wrong?

@JohnD: You have to use Linux. It is some driver related problem... I still have no answer from AMD engineers.

no. it is bad. you should get about 10k cpm. Do you use Catalyst 13.12?

@lir111: What are your command line options?


Ouch meaning what? Sucked he had to have someone else fix it? Or that 14.1 drivers suck?
No, "ouch" because AMD f***ed it up. I hoped that those times were over... That is not the only problem with the Catalyst drivers (e.g. the 290(X) performance inconsistency in Windows and Linux)

I so hope the Windows issue is resolved for the 290x's.  Not sure how long I can stomach Linux's lack of undervolting/clocking tools for these cards.  I can't even see what voltage my cards are running at... :(

Has anyone tried mining with the 14.1 drivers on windows with the 290x's?

I've been reluctant to try the 14.1 drivers because of the significant performance impacts seen with scrypt miners.  I know my performance on the ASUS R9-290XOC is crap (550KH/s) compared to where it should be.

In clpts I'm getting around 3250c/m with the R9-290X under Windows 8.1 and the 13.x AMD drivers.

How much better is it under Linux?

~4000cpm stock and ~4500 cpm with OC.

Ok I switch from debian to w7-64 bits and now I'm getting 3400cpm per card :)

I think It may be linked to chipset drivers not being good on linux.

no. it is bad. you should get about 10k cpm. Do you use Catalyst 13.12?

yes i used 13.12 now and its still 4500 collision..

here is my config

clpts_x86.exe -o ypool.net:10034:8080:8081:8082:8083:8084:8085:8086:8087 -u user.a -p 1 -a 2 -t 0,1,2


do i need to run multiple bat file? or its enough with 1 running bat file?


UPDATE:

now i use this -t 0,0,1,2

.. and i got 8100 collision ..... what now? do i need to overlocked? how?

my 7970 can get 3700 cpm in windows 7, r7-260 (2gb) around 1300, and r9 270 (2gb) around 1700

too bad clpts doesn't have a backup pool, it's probably worse than most of the other gpu miners if you tested efficiency over a 24hr period

ed: this is with catalyst 14.1

btw, i also found it much faster to run 3 separate instances of clpts in my machine with the r7-260, r9 270, r9 270....  it went from about 4500 cpm to *4700 or so (ok, I guess that's not "much" faster, but faster anyway)

-t is for threads

you should be using 0,0,1,1,2,2 on three 280X cards...

this runs two threads per GPU... any card with 3GB or 4GB can run two threads...

0 = GPU 1
1 = GPU 2
2 = GPU 3
3 = GPU 4
4 = GPU 5

if you have ONE video card with 2GB of memory it would be -t 0
if you have ONE video card with 3GB of memory it would be -t 0,0
if you have ONE video card with 4GB of memory it would be -t 0,0

if you have TWO video card with 2GB of memory it would be -t 0,1
if you have TWO video card with 3GB of memory it would be -t 0,0,1,1
if you have TWO video card with 4GB of memory it would be -t 0,0,1,1

if you have THREE video card with 2GB of memory it would be -t 0,1,2
if you have THREE video card with 3GB of memory it would be -t 0,0,1,1,2,2
if you have THREE video card with 4GB of memory it would be -t 0,0,1,1,2,2

if you have FOUR video card with 2GB of memory it would be -t 0,1,2,3
if you have FOUR video card with 3GB of memory it would be -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3
if you have FOUR video card with 4GB of memory it would be -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3

if you have FIVE video card with 2GB of memory it would be -t 0,1,2,3,4
if you have FIVE video card with 3GB of memory it would be -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4
if you have FIVE video card with 4GB of memory it would be -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4

R9 270 2GB = 1 THREAD PER GPU
R9 270X 2GB = 1 THREAD PER GPU
R9 270X 4GB = 2 THREAD PER GPU
R9 280X 3GB = 2 THREAD PER GPU
R9 290 4GB = 2 THREAD PER GPU (currently performs best under linux)
R9 290X 4GB = 2 THREAD PER GPU (currently performs best under linux)

AMD Catalyst software 13.12 is actually DRIVER VERSION 13.251.0.0
AMD Catalyst software 14.10 is actually DRIVER VERSION 13.350.1005.0 (BETA, NOT RECOMMENDED)

when i put -t 0,0,1,1,2,2 .. the miner always crash

I wasn't implying it was a miner bug. I was able to get the miner to fire up on a 5770, even though it couldn't do anything. But when I put the 290 in the machine, then I get this code. I reinstalled the drivers, but same thing. I get this error. So I've got something wrong with the software installation otherwise. Been Googling for two days now. Nothing seems to work. This is the full error. Running AMD 13.12 drivers. And AMD APP SDK 2.9

Had a few work colleague fix this for me. 

I was just told AMD forgot some stuff when they released 13.12 and that was causing the problem. 

Instead of patching it, just use the AMD 14.1 beta instead and it should work.

Seems they didn't fix it in 14.1 either. I'm getting the exact same error in 14.1.

what GPU is your monitor plugged into... try running only one thread on that GPU... have you undervolted the cards? have you overclocked the cards?

@battleaxe: Your GPU is not recognized by the OpenCL implementation. I guess that the easiest way to fix the driver is to do a clean install of Ubuntu and after that only install the Catalyst driver 13.12 WITHOUT the APP SDK. To install the driver you have to download the driver from the AMD website and create a package for your Ubuntu version. After that install the packet using apt-get.

i think its on my first gpu? how can i know that where did i plugged it????

yes my cards is undervolted

overlocked? no its not bcoz i didnt know how
