It's getting to be that time of year where it's not worth running the heater but still a bit chilly so I'm thinking of firing up the old GPU as a space heater.  Haven't tried mining anything with GPU in a year.  Anything really worth mining these days?  Something I don't need to worry about mining 24/7 or have a wallet/node installed for.

I went through the fist half dozen pages and most of it is about ETH or LTC.  LTC can be mined with ASIC and I'm not sure I want to mine ETH.  I used to mine doge but that to is scrypt so can be mined with ASIC.

Might have to look into it.  I hope x11 software has improved since I last tried to mine an x11 coin.  My GPU did not like the software at all and it completely overrode the thermal cutoff.  Luckily I caught it before it did any damage.

Started mining both HODL and  decred today.  Tried mining eth yesterday but apparently 2gig memory on GPU isn't enough.

if you don't mind would you please list your GPUs.

been reading everywhere (specially about ETH) that on any two gpus of the same model having 2 or 4gb memory has not effect on mining.
in fact i got more recommendations to get the 2gb gpus;

AMD Radeon 6990.  2 GPUs on one card.  Both give me the clCreateBuffer(-61) error.  I did all the set commands I found and changed drivers but no help.

Still the same thing.  Doesn't matter if it's the older drivers or the most recent.

AMD Radeon 6990.  2 GPUs on one card.  Both give me the clCreateBuffer(-61) error.  I did all the set commands I found and changed drivers but no help.

Drivers 14.4 and at .bat

setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0
setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100



Still the same thing.  Doesn't matter if it's the older drivers or the most recent.

Close but missing the important one for 2 GB cards: setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100

This variable sets the single allocation of memory that you will need to increase for the large DAG file.

So for convenience the complete copy/paste list is:
Code:
setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0
setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100

Feathercoin is profitable and GPU mineable.

I used to mine feathercoin about a year and half ago.  Never made anything off of it and had a hard time finding an exchange to sell the little I had.  Maybe it got better don't know but no plans to mine it again.

Gridcoin rewards BOINC computation - there are dozens of CPU projects & a few GPU projects (all projects are rewarded on an individual project basis). Worth looking into - it's funner crunching BOINC because you're contributing to scientific advancement/research instead of burning electricity on POW.
