First of all, I'm sorry if I post in a incorrect section (and also I'm sorry for my poor english Undecided )

I have a 7850 GPU running in a i5-2500 (3.30GHz) Windows 7 64 bits machine, and I'm using CGMiner 3.3.1 and I can´t get more than 220 MH/s with next configuration:

cgminer.exe -o http://pool.50btc.com:8332 -u **USER** -p **PASSWORD** -I 12 -Q 0 -s 1 -E 5 --thread-concurrency 8192 -g 2 -w 256

I have test a lot of configurations and I can get a slighty higher hass rate whether I increase -I 13 (more of this value the GPU will crash)

Could anyone help me with a best configuration for this GPU card?

Thanks in advance

The same thing with -g 1 should get ~310 MH/s.
You also don't need the thread-concurrency for SHA256 mining...

Thank you for your answer...

I have test your configuration and I get 213.3 Mh/s... I don't know why?!!! or what I'm doing bad... I have read that this kind of GPU can reach 300 Mh/s, furthermore, with GUIMiner I get 280-300 Mh/s but I can't do the same with cgminer...  Huh

Anyway, thank you and if you think in other option I will try it.

Here is my setting for cgminer, it's a bit different than yours (your settings are good for scrypt mining, not SHA mining):
Code:
cgminer -k poclbm -I 6 -w 256

I run 2 7850's that do 315 MH/s (each) with that exact line.

EDIT: So your full line would be:
Code:
cgminer -k poclbm -I 6 -w 256 -o http://pool.50btc.com:8332 -u **USER** -p **PASSWORD**

Thank you very much...

After a little search and another little "try and error" with different parameters I finally setup a configuration file that give me 300 Mh/s average... (and doesn`t crash the GPU...)  Grin
