Not sure if you guys saw this but there is a 5chip variant that does 300k/hash for about 350$ bucks at 1.5w.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=444940.0

Very attractive to someone like me with high power prices and tiered power scaling.

I am not saying im picking one up but this just shows that these are probably coming and only going to get improved from here. Not sure whether to hop on and pick a few up once they become more available or just stick with my 7870 and 5850

Well thing aren't looking too great with my 290 RMA through WTCR, they say they can't find the problem I was talking about.

 

I really dislike that, I wish I could bring them to my PC and be like "see, here's the problem I was talking about"

 

It seems this happens every single time I RMA something, they can't find the problem I had. This one was noticeable too, a really loud fan rattling at random speeds, like, really loud.


So I phoned them and explained my problem, but it sounds like if they can't find the problem I was having with this card then I have to pay the $25 or whatever to ship it back to me (that's on top of the $25 it cost for me to ship it to them) and I still have this crappy card. I guess if worst comes to worst I'll just sell it locally for hopefully around $500, seems to be a fair price considering what Newegg and similar is charging for them.

Guys i got issue with black screen, after mining for a while. I come back and i see blackscreen, before the pc worked like 20h + no issue, i went to sleep and all i saw was black screen and pc which aint mine.

Now, i want to know, because my card has Hynix memory, and i run it on stock, what can be the cause for this? temps are fine, vrm is 75 core is 70c, power limit + 20% and so on.

I also downvolt the card to -20mV on the core. I use un-official overclocking without powerplay metod. And i think the problem is that, the core and memory stay at 3D setting 1000/1250, but the volts are going back to idle, making the card to crash, this usually (at least i think) happens because the servers disconnects, or went offline for a period of time?

soon the alpha tech ASICs will come out... competition = lower ASIC prices = more people can buy asics = moar coin difficulty = e.v.e.n.t.u.a.l.l.y. GPU mining will not be profitable = history repeats itself

one 280x costs at least $375 (if you are lucky), plus cost of the rest of the rig.

11 times $85 + $30 (for a usb hub) = $965, plus the host computer (pretty much any computer with USB will do)

so yeah, i stand on my "LTC ASICs cost 2-3 times as much as similar GPU rig" approximation

See Dealio proved my point for me. There a waste and shouldn't even be called an ASIC miner with those pee pee poor speeds. If I'm spending big bucks on an ASIC I want 50k+ AT LEAST!
