I got a brand new graphics card for Christmas;

EVGa GeForce 660 Ti, 2GB DDR5 Memory, 192-bit memory width.

But I cant get above 90MH/s with it? Even overclocked, its sitting at 100MH/s. A friends GPU, that is 3 years old, is getting 200-400MH/s?

How do I tweek my settings to get the best results?

Any ideas?

The sad truth is that nVidia cards are just not very good at mining because of their architecture, and AMD cards are. Take a look here. http://m.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-660-ti-benchmark-review,3279-12.html

And don't forget to check your power consumption and electricity costs if you're doing this for profit.

I heard AMD was better (after I bought the card), but I dint think it would be this bad!


Also, it just got worse! Take a look:

This keeps happening. I have to stop the program, and restart it for it to fix. Sometimes, just stopping the worker, and restarting it works, but not always.

Nvidia = Bad for mining
AMD = Good for mining

This is why his older card is performing better than your brand new card.

I feel your pain, I have an nvidia as well. I found that GUIMiner especially hates NVIDIA. I've tried diablo, bfg,rpc miner and guiminer. I find that for Nvidia BFGMiner and rpc CUDA Miner work almost the same, though bfg just feels more stable. I am running an nvidia 570 oc to 900 stock voltage runs about 150Mh/s to 175Mh/s.

Intel Core 2 Duo. Old enough these days. Its next on my list, along with the motherboard, for an upgrade.

Just so you dont feel alone. I must say this also happeneds to me... simply makes it unuseable for me imo... or anyone i think really... unless u sit there all day and check it to start it again. BitMinter has been working wonders for me, but with bitminter, ur stuck with bitminter pool. All i know is that it was easy as fuck to get running and it runs, consistantly... FOREVER! Tongue

I have ATI (im not used to saying AMD... I REFUSE!!!!) Smiley
