@Lucazane
Please remove link to my miner from 'getting started'. I haven't had any chance to work on in about one year and half and the project is completed. There won't be any new releases for this project and I would expect competition to have catched up by now.

Again, thank you for taking notice. But I'm just getting tired of the occasional emails I get in which I explain this over and over again so I guess I might write a line publicly.

I would enjoy some more action with this coin; I like the mini-blockchain concept very much, makes a lot of sense for cryptonote based.

If you are going to burn 7 digits and you decide to go GPU be sure to get in touch with some GPU developers. If there are game developers around odds are they can get you in touch with someone doing GPU stuff. I'm not following development those days but I'm still inclined to believe some algos hold surprises. With your budget you can probably get someone really badass.

Man!

That's super inconvenient but yeah, I bet it works  Cheesy

I liked especially how this setup is mildly storm-resistant... not like some "farm owner" post I read some time ago  Grin

Is it just me or the whole "mobo died in 2 hours" was a mountain out of a molehill?

Holy █ 9.90 qubit Mh/s?

Sad day for AMD, there has been a point in the past that performance could be pulled out of 280x. Sure needs driver tweaking.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: AMD Just Killed Nvidia on: June 01, 2016, 10:30:14 AM
Going to kill perhaps. Those are not on the shelves yet and availability might be a factor. I've seen Nv 750 launched at 180 EUR at some e-shops around here.
For pure compute I don't think they make GCN1.2 obsolete, main problem Tonga has always been overpriced, especially in its 2GiB variant (bleh)!

To me it looks more like a die-shrunk 285/380
Nope. Node shrink + new architecture iteration. It is known they have new instructions.

The 1070 however does about 27MH/s at the same bus type and speed, at 125W
A 70% price increase for 16% lower consumption? They will have do take down the upfront cost considerably. How expensive are 1070s for you?

I just noticed the 'skein' miner link on the official myriad page is broken. Dropbox might have considered it malicious. Meh!

theymos proposing multi-algo for bitcoin:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/4jg4ea/bitcoin_core_threatens_a_hard_fork_over_asicboost/d36fp1c

Has any coin implemented multi-PoW with a PoS compenent at this point?
Very interesting. Quoting for emphasis.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: My cryptocurrency idea about processing power based coin. on: May 12, 2016, 04:45:26 PM
Didn't the OP basically describe Ethereum?
Nope. Eth runs his own PoW something along the lines of 'dagger-hashimoto', at a certain point it'll become PoS.

Are there still alive pools remained for MYR-Groestl except https://miningpoolhub.com?
Yeah, what's up with the nz p2p node? I cannot connect to the http page, IDK if the server is really on but I'd like to keep churning GRS blocks.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: My cryptocurrency idea about processing power based coin. on: May 10, 2016, 10:08:47 AM
In general, maintaining a data structure isn't 'wasting power' albeit this is indeed taken to extremes with blockchains.

The idea of running non-cryptographic PoW has been around for a while. There are a lot of technical issues to deal with and a few mindset shifts as well. I am positive GridCoin sorta deals with it in the viable way.
Main problem is GridCoin isn't running the computation itself but running on another system (BOINC). In the real world, we could discuss this is mostly the same thing... but no, that's not the 'non cryptographic PoW' at work. Does that make any difference? I cannot tell.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: AMD R9 380 mining QUBIT Algo - how ? on: April 19, 2016, 05:04:12 PM
Can you try mine? I haven't got any feedback from Tonga users yet and I've been told it has nice instructions for AES!
Beware it's little more than a toy and for the time being I'm not even actively maintaining it. It's a strange beast and users have reported performance is quite odd.

Also try running some games in the background! I'm interested in keeping them smooth!

Well this works too :

Not as bad but the load on the card is the same like the copied tahiti kernel and sgminer ..

Holy crap man! This is really bad news for me! As a reference my 7750 does 2MHs! I will try updating the drivers and see what happens.

Did they (AMD) forgot the ROPS on again?

What do you mean by that?

Can we disable the GPU parts which are not used in the computing so as to save energy?
I remember back when people mined scrypt some dude made a great deal of a modded BIOS. One of the things I remember is that yes, he said you can shut down whole GPU blocks. The power consumption was greatly reduced - oddly, as the whole point of using compute is to bypass ROP units.
But I don't know if you disable them 'forever' to next reboot or what. I certainly wouldn't do that for cards which are not dedicated to compute only as shutting down the ROPs will make the hardware unable to run any graphics API in existence.

Slow, back to the drawing board Grin (last updated in 2015)
It was about time dude.

The GPU uses some coalescing to minimize latency and maximize utilization of memory bandwidth. Isn't that likely to merge accesses and thus amortize?

Excuse me we are getting in area of hardware that I am not well researched.
Coalescing patterns are variable across implementations a common point across most hardware is occupancy ratio or hardware-based, context-switch-free multi-threading of sort. Intel calls it HyperThreading®, it's guaranteed to work on two threads whereas GPUs accomodate as many threads they can fit. In my experience is considerably more consistent and easy to use than exploiting coalescing patterns.

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: CPU and Intergrated gpu on: April 09, 2016, 04:28:02 PM
Of course.
Note that GCN1.2 (Tonga) improved performance as well (it has an instruction to accelerate AES byte swaps) but apparently not many people bought those and it might require new kernels so IDK if the improvements materialized in the real world.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Website that offer a multi invisible miner on: April 08, 2016, 01:26:56 PM
I speculate that's just sgminer recompiled. It takes so little to fool up some AV.
