I ordered 2 of them, shipping from Memphis.  Should have them Sat.

What driver/cgminer settings on these for Bitcoin mining?  I use 11.11 for my other 6000-series cards and 13.4 for the 7000's.

ed: no more discounts, nm

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

Rebate has a 1 limit unless you use alternate mailing address, etc.

It's in the fine print.

I'm using 13.4 with my old 5870 and getting ~420khash/s with a smallish OC.  Settings for cgminer is --thread-concurrency 8000 -I17 -g1 -w256.  Could probably turn up intensity if you're not using it for displaying video on a monitor.

If I was able to help you out, please consider donating.  Any amount is greatly appreciated! Smiley

I don't think anyone actually knows for sure.

I have 3 coming (tracking number says on Monday). I will post once I have proof whether they are or are not 5870 and produce over 6870 hashes.

I only ordered one. It will be here Monday. In setting up a machine in anticipation of this thing turning up, has anybody used this (or any 5870) in a Linux based machine, and if so, what software and settings did you use for mining?

I really only use Linux for servers and basic workstations. Never for anything that required anything more than onboard graphics. Are drivers easy to get and install for this card?

I strictly run Ubuntu 12.04 for my miners. On my 5870s I seem to get crap performance with Reaper(340 KH/s per core) and CGMiner is completely unusable(tons of HW errors). For comparison my HD 7xxx cards have been a dream with CGMiner. You can download built binaries for CGminer, Reaper you'll have to build from source. Driver installation is easy but removing the drivers seems flawed so I just re-image the OS to test driver versions.

So what do you use, if Reaper and CG miner are garbage?

I'm a fan of Ubuntu 12.04 personally, and that's the build I'd probably use, so I'd probably run something similar to whatever you're doing, but with only one card. I'd really prefer to avoid buying another license for Windows.

Re-imaging is easy, since I have DRBL set up.
