How does the driver detect ETHASH is running on the card? After detection of ETHASH, the driver must be sending a preset signal to the card and the bios loads a low perf setting.

Hey PhoenixMiner, ever since the last ETH Epoch and the new 3.98GB DAG, I am seeing a slowdown on all my mining graphics cards. It varies from 5 - 10% depending on the card type and other settings. I am using version 5.3b. Any explanations as what could be the reason for this slowdown?

The slowdown remain after re-booting.

Let's beat this with actual statistics, I think it's pretty obvious this person doesn't really understand anything about what she is talking about anyway.

Going off a graphic, it seems in 2018 the world used 200,000 (TWH), and following the usually % increase in electricity cost, it's fair to say that ~ 84.23 TWH has been used in 2019. Now, I am using a tool created by students at Cambridge university - https://www.cbeci.org/.

With the current bitcoin network power (which keep in mind, is even higher then the network power last year), it estimates that 10-11 GW is being used a year for bitcoin network power. 0.042‬% of electricity... That is not a much, compared to how much % other services take up.

Some quick back of the envelop analysis from your stats.

It takes 4 acre of land to produce 1MW using solar generators.
In order to produce 10GW we need 40000 acre land (just 62.5 square miles). Multiply it by 4 to account for bad weather and night time offline generators.
The is hardly anything considerable, especially in sun rich countries like Australia, India, and several others in Africa where land is cheap and lots of barren properties are available to be  scooped up / leased for cheap.  
Bitcoin network can entirely be supported with renewables, if need be, for a considerable amount of time in to the future.

In light of the total wealth that is being secured by the Bitcoin network (both current, ~200bn, and future projections upto a few trillions USD), I think the world is getting a really good deal with the energy consumption of the Bitcoin network, especially when compared to the waste that is the banking industry.

Yeah, and they eat chocolate all day that comes out of blue cows' horns.
Switzerland is the 10th in vehicle ownership per capita, with four countries being obviously not suited for these criteria ( San Marino or Liechtenstein).
And while the US might have more cars per capita they also have older cars by an average of 2 years.


you mean the puny Swiss designed car in existence, the Smart Fortwo.  Smiley, where do you think the Swiss drive their cars, on the slope of Alps? Swiss use their congested commuter trains and buses as well as 2 legs to travel around and maybe use their cars during vacation outside the country. The Swiss energy footprint for all practical purpose is nada, and thus Bitcoin network's energy consumption, which is similar to this tiny country, should not be a point of debate.

Are we really going to compare and say that 9 million people traveling, working, partying and making chocolate and watches consuming the same amount of energy as 300 000 people doing a transaction a day is the same?


the 9 million people who live like ants, in stinky insulated cottages, burning oil and wood to heat them, where AC is a remote concept, hardly drive any cars, and in a tiny mountainous isolated region full of cows.

vs

the 300k people who live in the real world, wanting to secure real wealth from destruction.

Security is expensive, if in doubt look at the American military.

Define gargantuan, Power consumption equivalent to a tiny country like Switzerland is not gargantuan. Banking industry, gold mining industry are far bigger energy consumers than the Bitcoin network and mining infrastructure. We should dock her fiat salary and buy miners and solar panels with it.

Anyone with noisy fans? I had to service the fans on my MSI Radeon VII since the bearings dried out.

There's a sale going on for XFX Radeon VII at Newegg @ 569.00 a pop.
Wonder if it's because of the higher than normal defect rates.

13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: RADEON VII 4 pieces do not work, bad luck or AMD falling on: October 09, 2019, 12:12:39 PM
I have had 3X Radeon VII fail in recent times.
One of them failed within few hours of installation. All were installed directly on the motherboard.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Who ordered the AMD Radeon VII? Lets make a list of Miners / Hashrates / Coins on: October 08, 2019, 09:09:34 AM
2 more died yesterday, 1x Powercolor and 1x XFX.

I wonder if AMD has used Junk Vega silicon in these cards.

Just for fun. Watercooled and overclocked Radeon VII:

Cryptonight R = 3700 H/s

https://ibb.co/JzYVLXw

Great, if it's stable.
Which waterblock is it?

Did anyone;s Radeon VII die already? I have a Powercolor with Hynix HBM2 which just died (drivers always crashes in Windows, and would not run any OpenCL job in Linux).

Yes 6 out of 9.
Mine also died yesterday. It is from XFX. Anyone has experience doing waranty with them?
Did you try the store from where you bought it?

you mean 6 out of 9  Powercolors died or Radeon VII died?

Looks like Radeon VII is EOL already

I have 3 PCS of Radeon VII and each of 100mh/s  (it can get 105mh/s too but getting hot so short time. for this or maybe more need very good cooling system i think)

Here is the mining screen video;

That's cool, what are your clock and memory speed and voltage as well? Thanks
