Hi,

I bought my setup for gaming but today I decided to see how bitcoin mining would perform.

I tried using CGMiner, both graphics cards, R9 390x's in crossfire where maxed out and I was getting a speed of 6.5GH/s which seems very slow seeing as USB miners can do more!

I understand that hardware is designed for specific things, these being gaming, just wondering if I was doing something wrong or getting specific hardware is required.

Thanks,
Jake

 Embarrassed I guess I really am a noob! What's the tech everyone is using now if not GPU's? And why are so many people still talking about using GPUS's for mining.

Thanks.

This section is for Bitcoin, and Bitcoin has been way beyond CPU and GPU mining for a long time now.  GPUs are still used for altcoins, and if that's the direction you want to go you need to move this to the altcoin section.  If you want to mine Bitcoins, only ASIC miners are applicable.
