It’s been a while since I last signed on but will be at the conference this week, looking at catching up with some old colleagues and meeting many more for the first time… Its crazy to see how things have grown over the years…

Planning to buy two of these. Any idea when prices would go down now that we have 5700 available?

Prices going down in the beginning of a bull market, you must be smoking some pretty good stuff... LOL

Not in the case of the Radeon VII, AMD not selling more chipsets to AIBs so no more being made..

Just curious what you think about orders from retail places that say 15 day back order. I ordered 8 x RX580's from a place that shows a backorder list of hundreds with details about when they expect each batch in. I went ahead and ordered the rest of the gear, but perhaps should have waited until the back order was closer, since I might blow past my 30 day return policy before the cards get in.

Like everyone, I'm eager to start mining, and wondering if people ordering from places that are ordering themselves on demand are actually getting their cards.

Supply constraints aside, 2-3 weeks is the normal answer so I fear they just were providing that, I saw the same from someone I know last week who ordered from an online seller, when asked to confirm, it was changed to 30-60 days with no guarantees... With that said 580s are out as a side effect of 570s being out, not because they were the primary focus so it's possible they will surface a bit quicker..

Catching up on the forum posts.. Again there is no point on trying to convince people we are not mining for ourselves, there have been a number of customers receiving systems, some on the forums and some not,  I had a couple of customers let me know whats happening on the thread and suggested I take some time to get on the forum...

Sent an email update yesterday to all buyers with pending orders, so they have the details and options... I had a number of people ask for barebones systems so they are available immediately for anyone with a pending order that wants one or more, in lieu of waiting on GPUs, which is the critically important, missing piece... Outside of that a refund is always available...

It's a bad situation all around with very limited numbers of GPUs coming into the US, initially hoped we would be somewhat insulated from it since we order direct from manufacturers, but even they are being starved with millions of ASICs on back order from AMD between Sapphire, XFX, PowerColor, etc..

Cards are coming but they are trickling in, AMD forces some into the retail channels occasionally so it's not completely starved but it's an average of 100 at a time, and very scattered so GPUs will show in small numbers occasionally but if they do they disappear quick... We order in volume and although we will take less the large orders are being cancelled, held, or otherwise not fulfilled with a massive backlog of orders at this point... So we are still receiving GPUs at a slow pace and delivering some orders, but it is much slower than anyone wants.

That's good to hear you are offering barebone systems as alternative solutions -- is this a regular offering or something that you're doing because of this special case? I just built another rig myself and have parts coming for another behind it but it would be good to know if this is static offering for future rigs I build.

I know there is a lot of flak in this thread right now but it's good to hear that you're working towards the solution - thanks for the update.

It's something being done specific for any existing customer with a pending order, driven by the handful that asked... It's not something we intend to normally offer.. Put 100 in stock for the set of customers this impacts...

Its because literally zero video cards have arrived in the USA in the last 2 weeks. Even companies like newegg and amazon are not getting them. Best guess has it being another 2-4 weeks out before orders start arriving.

Please don't make excuses for this guy when you don't know what you're talking about.

I placed my order much earlier than 2 weeks ago. GPUs were still readily available then and I am *seriously* regretting trusting this vendor rather than just buying them myself.

Furthermore he's sent out two emails since regarding the shipping delay and blamed it on issues with system stability NOT on issues procuring the GPUs. Which is a load of horseshit of course. At this point I'd be happy if he would would just send me the damn GPUs.

It's blatantly obvious he's decided it makes more sense for him to hold the units people paid for and mine with them himself now that the GPU supply has dried up. Or that's sure how it seems from where I'm sitting. I would LOVE to be wrong. Has anyone received an order from bitworks in the past month and a half?

And this is false anyway, I know a local computer store that restocked last week.

harkifier guy sounds like is Brian Raymond to me. I order over 50x servers from Brian in April, since now I have yet receive any of my server yet. I sent the payment to him already.

1) Once I sent him the payment, his response was dropped to ZERO for two weeks, he promised me to ship within ONE week after received the payment.
2) I tried to call him after two weeks, he said his family have issue and lost contacts for two weeks, he promised it will ship out 2 days later.( tried to call him 5-6 times a day until he pickup)
3) I tried to call him 4 days later, he said some one went back to China and bought 750 ASIC chip( pretty retarded to say ASIC chip, everyone know is MSI RX 470 4GB Samsung/Hynic memory with upgraded timing) He said it will ship out for another 7 days. I sent him an email to confirm it will ship out in 7 days
4) 7 days later called him again(You have to try at least 5-10 times a day, lucky enough he will answer your phone call!!) This time he said the motherboard have issue, he have to eat the cost of over 150x motherboard and get them replaced. It will ship out by early next week.
5) I was naive and believe again, later he sent out an email to me saying the shipment resumed. I tried to call him 3 days later after the shipment resume email. He promised me to ship out on Friday but now postponed to next week...

Everyone know right now is Ethereum gold rush, why you think he will ship out the shipment when you can't buy ANY GPU RX470, 480 570 580, EVGA G2 1300 power supply and motherboard? He will keep  your money and secure the GPUs for mining for his own and keep mining until you asked for a full refund... Once the GPU stock are free, maybe he will ship you a system. I don't think he will ship anything in the next 3-6 month. At lease the ethereum gold rush is over!!!


Here is his phone number below. don't waste your time hoping he will ship it out anytime soon.  Get your money back and hope to do something else.



It's been some time since I have been on the forum, been busy working things, it's the crypto space so I will never convince some people we are not sitting on systems, don't care to get into that fight as it's a lose-lose regardless..

I however have no outstanding orders for 50x systems that were paid for in April, we do have a handful of large pending orders from customers in May/June however I know who each one is and have talked with all of them this week... If you are one of the people that ordered and paid for a single system with the promise of buying more once it's delivered, then you are in the same boat as others, would however like to know the order number since you sound like Melvin from the writing, but those 2 systems were delivered last week...

Not sure if it's part of the stability problems or not but my miner on my 4x470 rig keeps crashing. The EthDcrMiner64.exe keeps crashing, it's just the miner.

PC doesn't freeze etc.

Is this a bad card acting up or stability issues in 9.x?

Maybe something wrong with the riser?

Its about time a branded company started making these.  Reliable ones which can be trusted unlike the generic crap we see on amazon and ebay. I'm also interested to know the difference between the version 3 risers and version 7 risers.  Does anybody know?

It's claymore's thread so we should move the riser discussion elsewhere, but I'll say one more thing...

What's in a number, seriously that is the question... Most of these come from three factories in China, as in three primary "lines' of similarly designed risers, and each has their own numbering system so it can be tough to make sure you get the right thing, especially if buying from ebay or Amazon... The running assumption in this thread is that the versions being discussed are all coming from the same place...

yochdog is a great customer, glad he got good use out of the machines... I did want to add one note, the power numbers quoted are for dual mining with claymore, if it's turned off they drop another 100W or so each for the same ETH hashrate...

I hadn't paid much attention to this before but am interested in supporting, but I am curious, are we still at 10/50BTC given the intent of the original amounts and the current value relative to fiat?

Some of the big guys here could confirm this (that packed soft. is reported as virus), but i think they rather have fun reading all of those accuses i get than helping Smiley

I grabbed it to check out, it's good to see someone else jumping in with a tool, I didn't use it since it doesn't bring anything new to the table right now but looking forward to what might come in the future.... My AV doesn't actually flag anything on it either....
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Hashrate RX 570 on: April 21, 2017, 06:08:40 PM
Well the most probable reason for the MIRs and no real price drop is that the 400 series cards are still in high demand for mining due to their mainly lower price so it's to be expected. Also like expected, 500 series isn't a huge boost, Vega still isn't out yet and that will be the big show coming up.

Production of all 470/480 cards stopped a few weeks ago, AMD not selling anymore parts, whatever is left in the channel will be sold but there are not anymore coming unless AMD changes course and releases more parts...

The only parts that AMD sold were the Polaris GPU which is exactly the same as the 570/580.

I am referring to how AMD controls production with their AIBs, not the actual physical parts and what they *could* be used for

Try with this :

https://github.com/IojkinKot/PolarisBiosEditor

Dallase, could you upload that 570 rom please ?

Edit1:

You can easily fix checksum with ohgod..tool : https://mega.nz/#!zIwVXL4B!IUQOXRqWDw6L15rvN5gBgBN0hxc6ncQu5YcnG41m90g

Edit2:
I see now that 480 micron rom was uploaded & modified by me, but why do you want to open it in hawaiireader ? Cheesy
480 are polaris cards, not hawaii Cheesy

You mean PBE doesn't work?!
It does work, most 5xx bioses now contain 2 memory profiles, like elpida/micron 4xx.


There is a fork on github that already supports the 570/580 BIOS, I cannot recall which one offhand but it's one of the recently active forks...

Have an MSI Z170A Gaming here as well, while I have no problems with other 170 boards that one causes real problems above 4 GPU, seeing PCI bus issues with the risers... Some others I have tried work much better...

Dear Friends

What parameter do I use to specify the video card I want to use?

Because I just want to use the "GPU 0"

Thanks
Almir Fiorio

Look at the -di parameter on the first post, it explains how it works.., -di 0 for example.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Claymore's Dual Ethereum AMD+NVIDIA GPU Miner v9.0 (Windows/Linux) on: April 13, 2017, 12:37:08 PM
Hi Claymore, RX580 8G is not working good in stock just giving 22-23 Mh. Is it because your miner does not support this card yet?


Is that released already?

If it is a 580 and not a mistype, no they are not formally released, they are not supposed to be sold until the 18th but maybe something slipped out..
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Hashrate RX 570 on: April 13, 2017, 12:20:12 AM
I will be getting my samples this weekend and let you guys know of the results.

any update for the performance?

If he's like some of us can't post results publicly until the 18th... Will have some things up then however, have a full system of 8 running...

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Need a reliable site for pre built Monero GPU miners (UK) on: April 09, 2017, 02:30:55 AM
I have found mineshop.eu but not sure if it is trustworthy.

Hi!

I think - they are.
Talked today with the main person - Guntis Vitolins - of mineshop.eu.
I want to build a mining farm in my country Smiley
He sent me some pics and video from farm they built in Romania.

AND - you can check his channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkYCnjVcFJDN6Cp_uP0pv_A

Build it yourself. Will be much cheaper... His prices are expensive asf.
But if you are scrooge mc duck and have money to trow out the window to build your farm. Go for it  Smiley

I do always enjoy the time is free crowd, my biggest customers are miners that have built farms by themselves in the past, but time does cost money so it's a legitimate trade that everyone needs to make, considering their own circumstances when building a farm...

Hmm, i tested newest clyamore 9 on my RX470 and i see performance decreese from 171 to 167 MH Sad
I will do more tests.


If you read the initial post it implied dcri was needed to get it tuned right even in ETH only mode. It seems like that is indeed the case when it uses ASM kernels, without tuning it will slow down, you need to set dcri to something lower than the built in default.
