Hey,
I needed some info regarding the mining speeds of a few cards for mining LTC, I've looked at http://wiki.litecoin.net/index.php?title=Mining_hardware_comparison but couldn't find much :/

These are the cards I needed the mining speed for :
  • HD 5570
  • HD 5450
  • HD 5670
  • HD 5750

That's it for now Smiley Thanks !

Update : added 2 more cards to the list, any info will be awesome !

ouch, kinda less than I expected but for its price hmm, it'd be nice if you could test it out later on and lemme know

Btw, any idea about the 5570 ?

Thanks Smiley

Yeah sure i'll run some tests on my 5450 tonight for you no worries.... with the 5750... looking on this comparison chart
https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison
you should be able to get between 60-100Mhash on Bitcoin mining.... I would expect with the right settings you should get between 60-100Khash for LTC mining... I found this thread particulary helpful for LTC mining https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=117221.0;all

also what miner are u using?? GUIMiner? cgminer? reaper miner?

Personally I started on GUIMiner as it is nice and simple and easy to use for setting up BTC mining... but have since switched to cgminer as the actual miner is more diverse and stable and gets me a better hashrate overall for my 7970.  Also the backup pools is managed more to my liking as when my main pool say falls over, only then does it kick in on the backup pool, but u can vary this in the settings....

ah, hmm any "cheap" or well "cost effective" card for mining LTC ? as I'm looking to build a small rig to mine them efficiently and my current card is not efficient at all :/

ATI HD6950 is the most cost effective card IMO. (400-500KH/sec)  You can pick them up used on ebay for ~£120 (in the UK)

I'll look for them here but I bet they'll be pretty expensive here, but mainly looking for multiple "cheap" cards like the HD 5570 Wink

Well the 5570  isn't shown on the mining comparison list yet https://github.com/litecoin-project/litecoin/wiki/Mining-hardware-comparison

But looking at the chart I'd take a guess and say you'd get about 100kh/s. (probably lower)

I've just had a look on ebay.co.uk and there are used 5570's for £40 delivered.

You'd have to get 3/4 of the them to match a 6950 and that will have set you back £120 at least...already.

I guess buying many lower powered cards would give you more redundancy, but my choice is still the 6950.

Also look in the mining and marketplace forums on here as a number of people are selling off their old mining rigs so you can pick up all u need with the knowledge that the cards work and can get good estimates on hash rates for each card

you can calculate by the number of shaders in the card as long as the card uses gddr5

see thread in my sig

True, I think i'll just go for the 6950 Smiley

Could try that, but my only worry is that if the cards fail, it'll be kinda difficult to get them fixed, I think ?

Sweet thanks ! Looking now Smiley
