Introducing xptMiner-PTS-5k, the only open source miner optimized specifically for Radeon 5 and 6 series GPUs!

What do I mean by optimized?  Well, my aging Radeon HD5830 mines at ~800 collisions/minute with only minimal overclocking:


This miner works on both YPool and 1GH, simply specify the correct pool url with the "-o" option:
YPool: -o ypool.net:8080 -u username.workername -p pass
1GH: -o ptspool.1gh.com:18120 -u 1PTSADDRESS -p anything

Windows Binaries: (both 32 and 64-bit builds)
Mega.co.nz
Dropbox (mirror)

Linux Users:
You can download the source code from the project's GitHub page: https://github.com/llamasoft/xptminer-pts-5k
A compile guide is also available from the project's main page.  It assumes you already have the AMD APP SDK installed.
For Ubuntu and BAMT users, the compile process simple:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get -y install build-essential m4 openssl libssl-dev git libjson0 libjson0-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev
git clone https://github.com/llamasoft/xptMiner-PTS-5k.git
cd xptMiner-PTS-5k
make

This miner has been tested on Windows 7, Ubuntu 13.10, and BAMT.


Performance Tuning:
It is highly recommended that you install the latest Catalyst drivers for your GPU.
If you are on Linux, please update to the latest AMD APP SDK.
Once your software has been updated you can tune the performance of the miner by adjusting the "-b" flag (default value is 23).
If your GPU has 1GB of RAM, an initial value of -b 23 is recommended.
If your GPU has 2GB of RAM, an initial value of -b 24 is recommended.
Try increasing or decreasing the value for "-b" until you find the best performance for your GPU and software configuration.


Benchmarks:
Want your GPU included in the list?  Post a screenshot of your miner along with the following information:
  • Collisions/Minute
  • GPU model
  • GPU clock settings
  • Mining parameters
