at 1000kh/s each at 300w id be tempted to dump all my cards and go with 2-3 of those

or grab some 7970s when they drop down to $250 levels

I read in a thread Bitcoin isn't so profitable anymore. Is there any coin currency that is stable and profitable? I dont want to do investing mining.

Im getting out of the Hobby myself.

Bout to do a Massive sale next few days FrozenQ reses 7950s 7950 water blocks 3770k etc etc.

The trolls have just made me really hate the hobby.

In the reef tank hobby i have yet to see a troll.. no fan bois r nothing... Much less stressful.

Can you elaborate more on trolls? If you are mining, the act of mining should have very little to do with any human interaction?

I guess I was just curious why you would abandon something that makes money because of a factor that has nothing to do with said money making. But, good luck with your future endeavors! biggrin.gif I would love to know what types of 7950's you may be selling and for how much when that day comes!

Tomshardware includes bitmining in its benchmarks now:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-r9-290x-hawaii-review,3650-34.html


Their chart shows a 290X is about 10% faster than a 7970
Power consumption varies depending on settings, they showed it can draw anywhere from 225W to 295W+. Their 7970 power draw was 268W

That's mining SHA-256 not Scrypt. But they tend to scale together I believe.

They had this to say on the matter of power consumption/gpgpu performance:
Quote:
If you want to take the Radeon R9 290X to its limits, then you need to push it hard by increasing its power limit and dropping the target temperature. Under those conditions, it's possible to exceed 300 W. We even saw 335 W from the card, though that's probably not at all something you want to reproduce.

The 225 W we measured using a compute-heavy load and stock settings can be pushed as high as 295 W by giving the fan more room to spin up and targeting a lower thermal ceiling. Unfortunately, those conditions don't last. Once the Radeon R9 290X hits its target temperature, power consumption drops considerably. This explains the card’s relatively low performance in our GPGPU benchmarks.

So according to them, this card might have issues preventing it from being a good mining card. Though I don't know how much time they spent trying to tune it for mining, or how the results would change if they were mining Scrypt.
But it overall looks to be roughly on par with a 7970 in terms of hashes/watt. And only slightly faster overall. Which means it's not going to change anything in the bitmining arena.

Are you selling your stuff on OCN? I'd be interested in that thread, post it here if you make one tongue.gif
post #2699 of 22537
Yeah ill post the thread link here when im rdy.

So much stuff i need boxes and stuff before i start.
