News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

The more efficient you make miners, the higher the difficulty rises.

Wow, really awesome find. You're gonna be a minor celebrity around here soon no doubt.

I salute your ingenuity, and am firing up all the VNC sessions to edit my miners kernel files Wink

edit: You added ten megahashes per second to one of my 5850's.  I'm now hitting 400 MH/s on only 1.162 volts.  I love you.


That was a very selfless act giving it away on the forums like that.  Unfortunately well over 60% of the community would have wanted to charge a fee for their optimization.

Everybody, thanks for trying this out. I guess it really does work  for other people. Keep donating, I like it Smiley

Now that we know it works, it would be great to check this change into the source code repository somewhere so that everyone gets this change by default, without having to manually edit any files. How is this done? Also, how do I post into the non-newbie thread? I feel that this post it doesn't belong here.


I believe after 5 posts you can post in the miner section. Don't worry this will get around quick and it will I'm sure get added within a week or two at most. Great job! I hope your donation made it. =)

I hope it doesn't get added and we keep it a secret.  Delete this post

Edit: To the OP - if you want to see the results of your kernel edit to my 5770:

210 MH/s -> 217 MH/s , check the graph (dip is when I swapped kernels)
One degree cooler and more stable usage

2.6% increase on Phoenix' poclbm kernel. Nice work!

I wasn't aware that poclbm supported BFI_INT ?

Why not use PhatK with the 2.4 Stream SDK ?

Went from 193.7Mh/s to 195.1Mh/s on my 5770 (900/600) after I edited BitcoinMiner.cl and restarted guiminer.

 running guiminer phoenix.exe VECTORS BFI_INT FASTLOOP=false AGGRESSION=12 -k phatk WORKSIZE=128

Hmm, but now has rate has actually dropped into 186-188 range, not sure what is going on. Sad

Naukop - Could the drop in the hashrate be due to overheating? I've noticed that my card heats up more as a result of the change (and then either it hangs or I have to overclock it less Sad ), so could the same be happening to you?

Opsamk - m.sc., then asm programming for 10 years or so; i'm not looking to be-rich myself on bitcoins, just playing around with these hashes and ATI's hardware Smiley

Thanks for your code. It's nice to see people get rewarded for their efforts (though it doesn't always happen). Well, I've tried it on my own miner (minerd) and have some very strange findings.

https://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=21275.0

First of all, minerd supports up to 4 vectors, and when I add this change to my kernel, it actually _slows down_ the 4 vector version. But when I override it to set 2 vectors, it speeds it up. However, once it's sped up, I then get runs of rejected shares. I tried it multiple times with and without and it does appear to be just this change that causes it, so I'm not sure what's going on.
