What cpu in gpu is this? My i7 hd400 only does 12mh/s.

Last night I decided to switch to LTC just for fun...  I agree with the above comments that LTC requires more skill/tinkering.  Each of my workers have different success with LTC and BTC -

Better at LTC:  my HD 7750s rip 175 kH/s in LTC but only 150 MH/s in BTC 
                     my CPU (obviously)

Better at BTC:  my CPU-embedded GPU thus far is better at mining BTC (63 MH/s) than LTC (43 kH/s), but I haven't played with the settings on this guy much...  I like the idea of having a little exposure to the BTC (~15% of my "work")


Overall, I'm making about double with the 7750s rippin LTC and I'm still minin' a 'lil BTC for the french-fried effect (Slush is in France, right?)

In summary, its fun to at least try mining each of them and see where you are at.

Slush is Czech and is in Czechnya. Hahah. No, czech republic.

more or less retired.

Its the AMD A8 black edition - got it off craiglist unopened from some lady for $50.  It sells on amazon for $101

@szita2000 Where do you mine btw?
I was on Notroll, but it is not too reassuring that Nickasa don't have enought to pay out measily 10 LTCs, so I tried Give-Me-LTC, but the earnings was dissapointing.
So now I ended up on WeMineLTC.com.
I have to vouch for those guys as the earnings are spot on. If anything I think my earning there is a little higher than Notroll was.
They have the graphs and everything, so it is cool.



Thanks for the tip @szita2000

I was mining with give-me-ltc.com but the hash on their site and within CGminer was super volatile.  Now on their site its steady work and +100 observed kH/s on their site.

Currently given the difficulty is rather high, GPU's are doing better at LTC. The only difference is that LTC is harder to configure on most GPU's because you have to try and account for every setting (if you're not using GUIminer or the like).

It really depends on your setup. In most cases LTC will be far better off with the rise in difficulty.

LTC is starting to become independent from BTC.  LTC will eventually be more valuable than BTC in my opinion since the rate of confirmation (usually 6 for btc-e, etc. ) is 15 in versus 60 min. 

The network hash on LTC is also growing.

 Namecoin looks %7 to btc's %100. Does that mean its bad to mine nmc? Cheesy Or does that mean its %7 more profitable to mine NMC?

I wouldn't mine NMC directly, only merged.  The 7% means you get 7% of what you get by mining NMC as you would putting the same effort into mining BTC.

I just did some tests with two of my cards, trying to mine for LTC. Followed the Scrypt readme in cgminer and came to the conclusion that mining for BTC is still more profitable Smiley

The cards are HD6570 and FD6670. Both peaked with the following settings at 31Kh/s each:

cgminer -T -l 1 --scrypt -I 9 --thread-concurrency 2880 -w 256

Mining Bitcoins, I get 120~130Mh/s from each card.

Following the calculator here:
http://dustcoin.com/mining
I get $0.89 per day mining BTC and only $0.31 from LTC.

Now it is time to test my 7970 and 7870 cards...

Interestingly, I get over 82Kh/s mining on CPU (11 threads, 3930K i7, 4.2GHz)


EDIT: I know what my problem was! I underclocked the memory on both cards to 300MHz for BTC mining. Once I clocked them back up, I stared playing with the intensity and thread-concurrency settings.

HD6570 performed best with -I 17 --thread-concurrency 2880 and 900MHz memory clock, giving me the speed at 98Kh/s.

HD6670 performed best with -I 14 --thread-concurrency 2880 and 1000MHz memory clock, giving me the speed at 104Kh/s.

This changes the picture a lot! Profitability rises from $0.31 to $1.03 per day at today's BTC rate.

EDIT 2: This is getting interesting. Yet another of my HD 6670 cards, showed best performance with -I 16 and gave me 115Kh/s

EDIT 3: The story is different for HD 7970 with memory clock set to 1300MHz. The maximum I managed to get out of it is 404 kH/s (-I 20 --thread-concurrency 8192). This is currently less profitable than mining BTC with the same card @ 650MH/s ($4.88 per day in BTC vs. $4.01 in LTC)
