Would someone be kind enough to update me on the status of mining performance using Windows vs. Linux tools?
I've read recently that some Windows GUI miners now include the BFI_INT optimization that used to be what put the Linux miners ahead in performance. Is that the only consideration? I like the idea of a GUI for ease of use, but I'm no stranger to the Linux prompt, so I'll use whatever gets the best performance. If, however, performance is about the same on both, I'd prefer a GUI.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
Depends on your GPU. It's hard to overclock in linux on some GPUs. You have access to afterburner in windows. But I find linux 100% more stable. There is also a LOT less cpu overhead as well. Windows also has LogMeIn.
I'd say if you have a reference card and/or able to edit bios with RBE, then linux is definitely better.
