Yes, you really need manual vector handling on AMD. Their auto vectorization isn't very good.

I made some changes to vectors. Appreciate it if you could try again. BFI_INT on and off are different kernels, so might yield different results.

Getting better performance than phatk on my 4850. Up to 80Mhash/s vs 77Mhash/s.

Would be nice to have an average mint speed because my card runs at 110C so the driver down clocks every 5 seconds.

Cool, OCedHrt, good to hear you are getting good performance. Adding "average speed" to my TODO list - good idea!

And... First block created! Smiley

What's the hashrate of your pool so far?

Btw, Catalyst 11.7 with SDK 2.5 gave me huge increases to DiabloMiner and Phatk but only about 1% on your miner.

DiabloMiner 82MHash/s
Phoenix Phatk 80Mhash/s
BitMiner 81Mhash/s

And downclocked to 500 Mhz because my GPU runs at 110C
DiabloMiner 59Mhash/s
Phoenix Phatk 56Mhash/s
BitMiner 57Mhash/s

The kernel for phatk compiled differently under SDK 2.5 and I assume the same for DiabloMiner. Are you including a precompiled kernel with BitMiner or is it compiled at run time?

I also have manual vectors and BFI disabled on your miner. BFI isn't supported on a 4850 so enabling it won't do anything, but weirdly, manual vectors run slower on BitMinter but vectors run faster on Phatk/DiabloMiner as long as worksize is <= 128. Actually, on SDK 2.5 DiabloMiner runs faster with worksize = 128 while on SDK 2.4 it was worksize = 64. Phatk is still worksize = 64. And for BitMinter worksize = 64 is optimal as well.

Edit: And..I can't connect now.

The hashrate is still quite low. And I still haven't programmed in an estimated hashrate for the pool - but it's coming soon!

Sorry about connection issues. While I was working on the server I lost all connectivity with it. I got things running again as soon as I was able to reconnect.

As for hashing speed of BitMinter: I made a couple optimizations the other day. I can't remember if I put those up on bitminter.com friday or saturday. Then I tested it on radeon 6990 and geforce gtx 580. Both GPUs ran faster on BitMinter than DiabloMiner and Phoenix w/phatk. Although with DiabloMiner the difference was barely 1%. That was on Catalyst 11.6 though. I'll have to try on Catalyst 11.7.

The OpenCL kernel is compiled at runtime so different drivers can definitely make a difference there.

The vectors thing seems a little random. For me manual vectors help a lot on radeon 6990, but makes geforce gtx580 run much slower. The GTX580 usually runs faster with vectors with other miners, though. Must be a weirdness with my kernel.

Pool backend updated: Faster block change detection. Better cheat protection. Some changes to scale better.

Seems to be running fine.

Regarding source code: The miner, pool backend and web application are all closed source. At least for now. If you prefer open source or a command-line miner, then DiabloMiner seems to me like a good alternative. But all miners should work with the pool.

Oops, we have two threads. Better use the other one: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=27062.0


To answer your question: Yep, more stats are coming.
