R9 290/x Scrypt Mining settings, clocks, and hashes.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'd like to start a thread with just a list of the settings you are using, with the hash rates you are getting so everyone can compare what is possible.

Card 1: Reference 290x, Elpida memory
Core: stock
Memory: 1500
Core voltage: -30
Power tune: +50
Fan speed: 55%
Intensity: 20
-w (?): 256
Thread-concurrency: 28600
Work Unit: ~680-700
Hash rate: ~830 kHash/s

Card 2: Reference 290x, unkown memory
Core: stock
Memory: 1500
Core voltage: 0
Power tune: +50
Fan speed: 55%
Intensity: 20
-w (?): 256
Thread-concurrency: 32765
Work Unit: ~840
Hash rate: ~950 kHash/s


Please copy the template and fill in the numbers (#).

Code:
[B]Card #[/B]: [B]Model 290/x[/B], which memory
[B]Core[/B]: # 
[B]Memory[/B]: #
[B]Core voltage[/B]: #
[B]Power tune[/B]: #
[B]Fan speed[/B]: #%
[B]Intensity[/B]: #
[B]-w (?)[/B]: #
[B]Thread-concurrency[/B]: #
[B]Rejects[B]: # (%)
[B]Work Unit: ~#[/B]
[B][SIZE=5]Hash rate: ~# kHash/s[/SIZE][/B]


I realize there are probably other mining threads, but I'd like to compare with what you guys are getting and get a nice list started (and stick to the list for this thread).
(add anything if it's missing and I'll update the template)

The purpose is to see what it pays to tweak to get that little extra performance. smile.gif

I used to have 2 XFX ref 290 and 1 Gigabyte ref 290, they get 2450 KH/s in total.

^ Thanks!

Some slight tweaking

Card 1: Reference 290x, Elpida memory
Core: 900 (underclocked)
Memory: 1500
Core voltage: -30
Power tune: +50
Fan speed: 60%
Intensity: 20
-w (?): 256
Thread-concurrency: 28600
Work Unit: ~760
Hash rate: ~860 kHash/s

Card 2: Reference 290x, unkown memory
Core: stock 1000
Memory: 1500
Core voltage: 0
Power tune: +50
Fan speed: 60%
Intensity: 20
-w (?): 256
Thread-concurrency: 40200
Work Unit: ~870
Hash rate: ~970 kHash/s

(changes from OP, thread concurrency up on the better card, clocks down on the worse, fan +5%)

Card #: MSI 290 Reference, Hynix
Core: # 1000
Memory: # 1500
Core voltage: # 1.032
Power tune: # 11
Fan speed: #% 100
Intensity: # 20
-w (?): # 512
Thread-concurrency: # 32765
Work Unit: ~# 840
Hash rate: ~ 880 kHash/s

 

I have 3 cards like this, and these are the best settings for all three. The third manages an extra 10kH/s than the others, possibly because it is running off it's own PSU.

 

I have another 15 that will be up and running soon, will report back once all those have been fine tuned, though they are all ref MSI 290 so should be more or less exactly the same.

man everybody runnning refernce cards in here, i have a powercolor PCS 290, highest i get ( started mining today)

with guiminer i have 730 kilohash with thread concurrency 35960 and intensity - 20 and worksize - 256

the stock clocks are 1040 core and memclock is 1350

id love to tell you what the gpu load is but gpu-z doesnt update gpu load when im mining for some reason

everything else, temps, fan, etc that all updates, kinda weird
