Is there a way to speed this up? I've read something about openCL drivers, but they are just in beta if i'm correct, has anyone had any success/failure with these drivers?
Just downloaded the latest driver for my own card - 301.42 WHQL
...Other Details: Supports multiple languages and APIs for GPU computing: CUDA C, CUDA C++, CUDA Fortran, OpenCL
, DirectCompute, and Microsoft C++ AMP...
Then I was curious so looked at the section (supported products
) GeForce 400 series ... GTX 460 v2, GTX 460 SE v2, GTX 460 SE, GTX 460
if betas had better support or not, couldn't say... opencl is supposedly supported in 301.42 WHQL but I really don't see how opencl versus native cuda would make a whole lot of difference? Also, did you mean GTX? I tried googling for nvidia 460 GX and couldn't find any such named cards (in the years since I got my first cuda-capable card, never seen any nvidia product with anything named "GX" series
As far as I'm aware. Real problem is that bitcoin is SHA256 intensive and unlike ATI boards, nivida's have trouble doing integer rotate math (takes more cycles
... ATI is able to do the right math for SHA256 (used by bitcoin) and does it faster. Doesn't mean ATI is better for gaming, or other things like say folding with one's GPU. Rather frustrated by this myself.
