I have only heard bad things about the new beta drivers... If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
That's usually my philosophy too but I just couldn't resist trying out mantle on BF4. This is just on the gaming rig. My miner is still chugging on the same driver+miner+settings till I see someone post improvements.

So I'm trying to decide if I wanna keep trying this driver and submit anything different to AMD to improve things.

I hate to hear that, I had hopes for an improvement. I think AMD needs to understand what percentage of their graphics card sales is due to the mining community and start catering to us just a little bit. It would be great if either AMD or nVidia would come out with a line strictly dedicated to scrypt mining, I think we've only seen the tip of the iceberg as far as how widespread it will become in the future and these two card manufacturers need to recognize it for what it is.

Yeah but at the same time there's quite a few gamers on their cards too. Not to mention AMD's hardwares on the new consoles.

And there's nothing to lose from the miner consumers. They can just stick with the stable drivers. 14.1 is Beta afterall. I didn't expecting mining improvement but I did hope that it wouldn't lower it.

For all of the Linux users out there, When you installed 12.10 Xubuntu, did you release the update to 13.1? Were there any improvements?

why does coinwarz say a specific coin is most profitable. by the time I downloaded the wallet and started mining that coin it dropped from first place to twentieth? is that just a bug or?

Take it with a truck load of salt.

Not entirely accurate, only a guideline.

There was probably a little boom in price at the moment they calculate the profitability. It's unfortunatly not the profitability in the last 24hours or last week, so you have to watch it often, to see the trends of the (too) many coins out there.

Edit: So, watch it often, or even better, code your very own profitability calculator biggrin.gif

There are two factors that go into a coin being profitable, the rate at which you get the coin, and the price you can sell the coin for. When the site calculates the profitability it just takes the two and multiplies them together, sudden drops in difficulty will make a coin appear more profitable then it really is. (it will be profitable for the little time it stays low, but then it goes back to being a crap coin) I would just stay away from coins you see bouncing around like crazy. If you are just getting into it then just mine Doge until you can do some speculating of your own.

Same thing happened to me. From 980KH/s -> 860KH/s. This is at i=20 on Hynix memory. What I noticed though is that my computer is much more responsive now at i=20 than it used to be. Seems to actually mining at a lower intensity than before, since it feels like I'm at i=18 or so. Also getting much lower temps while mining, similar to doing so at lower intensity.

The difficulty of the coin + the market value fluctuates pretty wildly. There's a bunch of auto-switching type pools and miners that switches to most profitable coin. One mine the coin is mining at 1mhps then suddenly it's at 1ghps (made up numbers) because it hit the top of the profit charts. Then the difficulty shoots up causing it to not be as profitable anymore and all the auto-switchers switches to another coin and suddenly the hash rate of that coin shoots down, and have to readjust difficulty again.

I'm against auto-switching type scenarios for this reason. I like to stick with a coin that falls just short of top spot and not really ever getting that top spot.

Are you tempted to try raising the intensity? wth.gif

Further tests show that my core clock flickers between ~900 to ~1010 constantly, when it's set to run at 1025. This is only while mining, since it hits the target clock while gaming and sticks there. Have you checked your clocks while mining?
