Welcome.  Whatever you say, keep saying it.  You need 5 posts in the newbie section and four hours of lurking before you get posting privilages beyond this section.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

I used to by all nvidia until January-ish, when I was in the market for a new gaming card. I got "lucky" and decided to get an ATI since the 5850's were out performing the GTX260 for a sightly lower price. A few months later, I started to mine BTC and realized how big that decision was. Now I pretty much have a crossfire system paid off because of that.

When did you start mining?

Yeah, I recently invested in an nvidia card - but now that I've discovered bitcoin I'm eager to swap it out.  Been looking everywhere for (well priced) 5850s or 6990s to no avail...

I really wonder why ATI performs so much better at hashing then NVIDIA.
Even NVIDIAs supercomputing card the Tesla C1060 is only said to produce 52.5 Mhash/s.

Anybody gave the TESLA C2070 a try? What did you get?

Anyone has any explanation why ATI does so much better?
Could it be that miners use OpenCL and the OpenCL implementation on NVIDIA sucks?
Has anyone tried a native CUDA miner?

Yep, same here. Was doing FP GPGPU stuff before bitcoin came around,
and liked NVidia much more (more stable, better drivers and very specifically:
much better precision with floating point stuff than ATI).

But the integer performance of the red GPUs is killer. I'd be willing
to bet that at this point, bitcoin is starting to affect the NVidia vs ATI
sales ratio.



I doubt it. Any gamer worth his/her salts will know Nvidea is what you want for gaming. And PC gamers no doubt outnumber BTC/NMC miners many times over.

Judgiing by what MoonShadow said, I am now free of this area, 29 posts and 4 hours 12 mins lurking Smiley

LOL, the world of Bitcoins has no room for ignorant fanboyism.

I've been also preffering nvidia for very long time. high end nvidia cards were at the top of the list for folding and other distributed computing projects..

but now, this bitcoin mining is very good for ati

as i understand it it comes down to pure  architecture differences, now im no chip geek so dont blast my ignorance too much Roll Eyes

ati has thousands of simple cpu "like" processors that arent dedicated to doing any one thing (stream processors)

nvidia went down another path "specialisation" they have different part of the gpu to do differeent things. requiring more gpu cycles

i know thats clear as mud, but thats my simple understanding Smiley Smiley

huge nivida fan.. was disappointed when a friend of mine got a 5770. It's not a bad card but you know i get calls like "how do i make this physx crap work wth my ati" and i sigh. But then mining came along, and his stupid little pos 5770, kicks my nvidia all over the place... and i sigh again.

I use to like ATI back around 2000-2003 until I got Radeon 9800 Pro that was DOA, The seller took no responsibility for it so I had to deal with ATI directly. And sent the card back at my expense to get replaced. Was around $40 to send it. Got there and they said nothing was wrong with it and that I had to pay return postage of $30 and $80 for wasting there time. Which I was really pissed off about since the card was 100% DOA and I tested it in 3 computers but payed it any way since I at least wanted the card back. When I got it back they sent me some one elses card, A Radeon 9800 SE and they refused to send me my 9800 Pro saying the SE was just as good. So swore off them and had been Nvidia ever since and buying a new card every 2 years until I got my AMD cards this year.

Still would prefere Nvidia since I hate catalyst but there cards just arnt up to my needs at this point.

All my current GPUs are nVidia, but i may drag my old ATI cards out of retirement for a while for this.
