poclbm should give you the best performance on a 7970 if using 12.2 and 2.6 SDK
If you are using something else - change to 12.2/2.6 Smiley
(Installing 12.2 includes the 2.6 SDK)
To select the poclbm kernel you add: -k poclbm

Anybody mind giving me some tips on optimizing my config file? Using 11.12 on Win7 64, with HD 6950 as GPU 0 and 1, and HD 7970 as GPU 2 and 3. So far, using the config below, I get about 400 MH/s from my unlocked 6950s at 920MHz, and about 620MHs from my 7970s at 1100MHz. 400MHs is all I expect from the 6950s, but I feel like I should be able to get 650MH/s from the 7970s, although mine might be running a little slow due to the older driver. Any help is appreciated! Using cgminer 2.3.1-2


Also, does anyone know why cgminer uses 810 watts while DiabloMiner draws only 780? I tried changing intensity down to 7 and that didn't help.

Is there a place where i can download old versions of cgminer ?
I dunno what i`m doing wrong, but new 2.3.1 ver. works slower than my old 2.0.6 on my rigs.
Mostly i use 5870/5970.
I`m using just oc parameters, no auto GPU or Auto fan.
I`m planning to buy bigger MB and put somme 7970 into play, but i`m loosing aprox. 150-200Mhash on software... :/
i`ll make somme proof for that - cgminer woriking at least for 2h.

Anyone know where I can get a Windows binary of cgminer that has support for the Icarus FPGA board activated? I'm not 100% sure if the stock binary on the first post actually has Icarus support activated. I tried to use it and it did not work - did not detect the FPGAs.

What is "Cubby"?
A piece of software by LogMeIn

Wow - Cubby is in super-secret-internal alpha, pre-announcement and all, I'm surprised to see it show up on Software Informer at all.

Anyway, Cubby was just opening the cgminer executable and that's why AVG is even displaying the LogMeIn product. I could have used Windows Explorer to copy it and then AVG would have shown Explorer at the bottom part. This isn't really relevant.

Martona, if you got the executable from Con's homepage, you should be safe.

Yeah that's where it came from, and like I said, I'm pretty sue it's a false positive of AVG's heuristics but I thought it's worth putting it in front of you guys, especially Con.

If there is a difference in performance between two version of cgminer then this is caused by one of:
your using different kernels, different SDK or different drivers

When you run the old cgminer it will use the old *.bin that was created with the SDK that was installed back when it created the *.bin file
To see how old the bin files are on linux:
 ls -las *.bin
on windows
 dir /a *.bin
(or view them in windows explorer)

If your ATI drivers are updated, then if it is e.g. 12.2 then you also now are running SDK 2.6 <- the cause of your problem.

Of course, this is already written in the cgminer README file in the FAQ at the end - look for "my hashrate suddenly dropped"
(FAQ means ... ... Frequently Asked Questions)

Edit: why not use autogpu and autofan?
Unless you have some software monitoring those (and cgminer does it very well) you are risking your cards.

You included CPU mining didn't you?

If not, then try "-D --verbose -T" and also "-n" to see what's unusual about your computer.

i just started cdm 2.3.1 just in education mode, and adter few minutes, it`s like that:
(5s):2113.5 (avg):1970.7 Mh/s | Q:140

i`ll update that post with code of cgminer asap it will pas more than 2h.

Should i say, that no catalyst and no SDK was changed ??
So why newer is worser ?
ATM i`m using SDK2.6 implemented into 12.2 catalyst on ubuntu 11.04 x64

Well straight up you can see that the old one (that you said is faster?) is phatk2w128 ... which doesn't even exist in your new list.

There is also the point that you'd need to be sure what SDK was installed back on 2012-02-22 vs now.

"./cgminer -n" will tell you what it is now.

kano, i was using 11.6 catalyst with SDK 2.4 for last 6 months.
I removed it myself and instaled SDK2.6 insted.
I was searching a guide hawto uninstall, but not found, so i decided to experimen a little.
i followed guide of amd guide "haw to check why it`s not working" but in different dirrection.

Drivers was changed(and SDK) this week - monday i think.
I tried to force 2.3.1 with -k phatk -v 2 -w 128 - not working as well as 2.0.6 with nothing.
should i show you my line? i`m not using .cfg files.

i followed guide of amd guide "haw to check why it`s not working" but in different dirrection.
Well I could point this out but it may not be helpful if you don't know exactly what 2.6 installed
(what and where it put the files)

https://github.com/kanoi/linux-usb-cgminer/blob/master/linux-AMD-SDK-2.4-2.6-upgrade-downgrade

Drivers was changed(and SDK) this week - monday i think.
I tried to force 2.3.1 with -k phatk -v 2 -w 128 - not working as well as 2.0.6 with nothing.
should i show you my line? i`m not using .cfg files.
Yep 2.6 is slower than 2.4/2.5 on phatk on 6xxx cards (and probably 5xxx cards too?)
See if you can work out how to undo your 2.6 (if my doc helps?) - once you get back to 2.4 that MAY resolve it
(if you delete the new *.bin before running cgminer)

However, I found also that even 12.0 (which came with the standalone 2.6 SDK as mentioned in my git document)
was slower with the same *.bin files than 11.4/11.6

You wont get performance loss using sdk 2.6 on 5xxx series if you use old software?

Conclusion:
You wont get performance loss using sdk 2.6 on 5xxx series if you use old software?

Delete the .bin files from your beloved 2.0.6 installation and try again. You are NOT using the new sdk on the old installation if you still have old .bin files there. I did NOT spend 6 months and hundreds of hours coding upgrades to cgminer to make it slower.

Shouldn't the cgminer delete old .bin files itself? If it created them before, it should take care of them.

Shouldn't the cgminer delete old .bin files itself? If it created them before, it should take care of them.


Why?  Compiling the kernel takes time and resources.  It makes the first start much slower.

That is the entire point of saving a bin file.

1) cgminer looks to see if bin files exists (binary version of OpenCL kernel)
2a) if no bin file exists it compiles the open CL kernel using CURRENTLY INSTALLED SDK and saves a copy as bin file
2b) if bin file exists then cgminer saves time and resources and loads that bin file
3) compiled binary (bin file) is loaded onto the GPU
4) execution begins

The 2a & 2b means if you upgrade sdk but DON'T delete the bin files you will run cgminer used kernel compiled on the SDK at the time of first start.  If later you install a new copy of cgminer (which has no precompiled bin files) then and only then will the new SDK be used.

ckolivas could make cgminer compile on the fly on each startup and it likely would reduce confusion because as soon as you upgraded SDK and restarted cgminer you would see performance drop and people would stop blaming later version of cgminer for the drop. Still that change would only help the uninformed be less clueless and would slow start times for everyone else.

So i`m cheating...i like it....
I`m mining this same, but can run other(oclhashcat) software... double win to me.
