Yep... that's what I was getting at. smile.gif Personally, if you're dropping $800 I'd at least recommend the 290X... the hashrate will be similar (not quite as much perhaps, but at least similar), the power consumption will be quite a bit less... as will the heat. And if you just wind up using it for gaming - then you won't have anything to complain about either.

But yeah, I'm waiting to see what the Maxwells do before even thinking about any more GPUs... I'm actually thinking I need to get rid of a couple of my 7970's while the price is still decent just because I can't see wanting or using two tri-fire rigs... oh dat frame lag! puke.gif

Waiting is the best option, hopefully when the Maxwells come out if they're half as good as people are claiming they'll be then we'll see a paradigm shift towards alot more people using Maxwells and in turn seeing a decline in price of the AMD cards as the balance shifts more 50/50 maybe 60/40 in favour of the new Maxwell design

For you personally Digi it's probably good to sell your cards while they still hold their high value but I wouldn't really advise shelling out over the odds to get an AMD right now while price is stupidly high and especially with maxwell on the horizon

Also if you're getting a 290x why not just get a 290 and flash it to a 290x ? It's cheaper and uses less power, 290x's are pretty redundant in terms of efficiency compared to 290's when it comes to mining

GTX 860's will be godmode if NV can get them under 65C at full load

He also claims that the power efficiency will be better than anything currently on the market and will be very good for mining as long as they are able to go forward with the 20nm manufacturing for Maxwell and hit no road blocks along the way.

This seems very exciting for the mining community. If all of this is correct I am definitely going to hold out for a maxwell card when they come out.

I also think that Nvidia will pull off some amazing numbers on the highend Maxwell gpu's when they launch in Q3-Q4. Just looking at 750Ti Khs / Watt it's quite crazy. 45w on a single OC card and pulling 305Kh/s is quite sick. Just to add things up

AMD 7990 - Hash-rate: 1385 Kh/s | Cost: $660 | Kh/watt: 4.6266
AMD R9 290 – Hash-rate: 900 Kh/s | Cost: $400 | Kh/watt: 3
AMD R9 290x - Hash-rate: 880 Kh/s | Cost: $560 | Kh/watt: 2.416
AMD R9 280x – Hash-rate: 725 Kh/s | Cost: $320 | Kh/watt: 2.416
AMD 7970 - Hash-rate: 725 Kh/s | Cost: $350 | Kh/watt: 2.416
AMD R9 270 – Hash-rate: 450 Kh/s | Cost: $180 | Kh/watt: 2.25
AMD 7950 - Hash-rate: 650-700 Kh/s | Cost: $300 | Kh/watt: ~3.25

750Ti - Hash-rate: 305 Kh/s | Cost: $179 | Kh/watt: 6.77

If Nvidia can maintain the hashing performance on the GTX 870 / 880 it will make things quite interesting. My guess is ~1100Kh/s fully optimized GTX880 @ 270w undervolted.

This is my current code.
So now it just booted and my gpu is getting surprisngly hot. It hit 72 in like a minute and it keeps going higher. wth.gif

Do these numbers/hash rates look right with a 7950 boost? It's hovering between 475-500 Kh.

Im getting ~650Kh/s on my cards:

TC24000, Int:20 1050/1500Mhz

Oh I'm not getting a 290X... that was just for the discussion vs 5-6 750's... I don't need any more GPUs currently... I've got 2 7970's (or 280x's) in all of my rigs - even a couple 6970's still kicking it... but since I always need to actually use one of them at least, I'm thinking of selling 1-2 7970's and either buying a Titan/GTX780 or just waiting until Maxwell release for gaming/work only. wink.gif I've always preferred the 'green cards' personally - but ever since early 2010 I've been buying red cards for the dual-use opportunities (mining/gaming).

Oh no I meant in your suggestion to nick of gettng a 290x, a 290 would make more sense over the x but neither really make sense at the moment the way current prices are for the card.

I think if he's patient, plays the markets a little to make some money and waits for maxwell he'll not only be in a better position to decide just what to get because of more variety, the AMD cards will be cheaper, plus he'll have the added experience of knowing how the market works and how to play it himself which imo is more important than mining because you can maximise your income this way by knowing when to sell your mined coins and when to hold

And in other news this sounds pretty big http://www.bloomberg.com/video/blockchain-to-buy-bitcoin-trading-platform-BctAVYdISW2o0rYJTNK_XQ.html

Are any of you guys using hashcow?

I started using them roughly 20 hours ago and I have an avg hash rate of 2500k
Right now I have the following amounts;

Unexchanged Balance - 0.00198722
Confirmed Exhchanged Balance - 0.00224726
Current Balance - 0.00166786

According to poolhash, hashcow says that have an avg over .01 btc per mhs lately its been even higher..
So technically shouldnt I have closet to .025 btc after a 24hour period? I know its only been roughly 20 hours.. but I am only at .005 right now if you add everything up..

Anyone know? I dont like wasting time especially when there is other things to mine that could be just as profitable..

Have you tried CleverMining? I've use Trademybit, Middlecoin, Hashcows and Clevermining and I've been happiest with Clevermining.

 

I had the same problem with Hashcows, 2 days of mining and only a couple dollars to show for it with 1MH/s of power, after I saw that I left and haven't been back.

@ZaknafeinGR @Jeffinslaw

Anyhow, here are my results from testing all night. The "best numbers." I tried tons of intensities, thread concurrencies, and other settings but no dice.

And once again, they're all terrible. redface.gif

Stock: 486 hash and 71 temp.

Stock/10% power boost: 500 hash and 77 temp.

1130/1500/No Power Boost: 486 hash and 72 temp.

1050/1500/10% power boost :
561 hash and 83 temp

1150/1250/10% power boost : 525 hash and 81 temp. Little bit of artifacting.

1150/1250/20% power boost = 510 hash and 82 temp. Little bit of artifacting.

I have to ramp this card up to it's limit and sky high temps and even THEN I still get nothing.

Has anybody seen this board:
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8B_WS/


I can snag one super cheap, but if i cant use a 3570k and game on it, it is worthless to me.
