Title: HD5870 best Mhash?
Post by: being on July 01, 2011, 07:29:02 AM
Hey.

I have a HD5870.
What's the highest Mhash/s you've gotten with your HD5870? At 24/7 stable clocks of course. :)
If you believe it's high, what clocks/volts/cooling are you using?

people are getting around 440.  I get 430 but I don't overclock as much as some others.

I have 4x XFX 5870 clocked @ 960Mhz Core and 300Mhz Memory = 4x437Mhash/s = 1748Mhash/s absolutely stable speed.

Hi CYPHER,

Do you mind sharing the core voltage values in the above set-up?

I also have 4 x 5870 in my rigs, but I keep them at 920/1200/1.1250 - every time I push the GPU clock over 940, they become unstable and lock-up (the memory FRQ does not affect much, but it looks like higher the memory clock, the card is bit more stable)

Mine will only reach 400 mhash at 970 core.. :/
How do you do it?

Besides. What linux setup are you using OP? Looks very neat.

Sapphire 5870 gives me 449 MH/s at 1000 MHz core, 300 MHz RAM. Stock voltage (1.2V). I'm using 64-bit Linux with latest Catalyst and Stream SDK, and Phoenix 1.50 with that "+3%" patch.

My phoenix command line is:
./phoenix.py -u <...> -k phatk DEVICE=<...> VECTORS BFI_INT WORKSIZE=256 AGGRESSION=10 FASTLOOPS=false

Bad thing is that I have 3 cards of the same model but only two of them work @ 1 GHz core. The third one freezes after several minutes if I set more than 960 MHz.

Stock voltage, but I can't tell you the exact value as they are currently mining. I've flashed them with an edited BIOS, which does not allow changing the voltage. I've tried 990 core which was stable, but speeds  weren't high enough to justify the extra power consumption or higher temperatures to be expected. For me 960Mhz core is the best setting.

Is 1.1250 the default voltage or you increased it?

I have two 5870's in an caseless motherboard overlocked at 1000/347  (1.2 volts) running at 77.5C and 76C both hashing at a stable 456.75Mhash/sec using phoenix-1.48 (patched with all the speed improvements released in the past few weeks) under Ubuntu 11.04.

I decreased it. I think the default voltage was 1.15. I will check next time
