I put a Kill-a-watt on my rig today. I'm running one 290x and one normal 290. Together there running around 650 watts.

what are your hash rates at that power draw?

Nice, did you undervolt and overclock?

I didn't change the voltage. 920/1500 on the 290x, 947/1250 on the 290.

Sold my 2 290x cards, just didn't have time to mess with them right now trying to find better settings. I was expecting someone to have found settings for 1+MH/s when I got back to check the thread, thankfully my 920/1500 is still the best.  Tongue

They run really hot as well, doubt they would be stable at room temp even with good fans.

The 290x is not going to be a good card for mining. At least at these prices.

Don't you guys think there will be price cuts soon?
Should you get a 7950 now or wait for price cuts? What's the best strategy profit-wise?

I'd go for the 290 non x...maybe wait a bit more but it's amazingly cheap for what it is, and a few guys managed to unlock shaders flashing the 290x bios. (so far only one xfx, one msi and two powercolor oc cards)

Thinking about getting an r290 to mess around with but will probably wait for non-reference cooling. I had a few powercolor single fan 7950 and those things ran stupid hot when not undervolted/clocked.

Go for the 290 because of performance vs price. The 290x is much more expensive.

290x seems to have better power efficiency, lets just wait for thanks giving it might be really cheap...

Can you break down of each of the graphic card hash rate?

It's possible, but I'd like to see the performance of each card. Possibly with screenshots from cgminer.

I am interested to know too, but I believe 290x is 900 hash and 290 is 800 hash so its about 1700...

i am actually considering that right now, but i have not decided weather to go with play 7970s instead or the new 280x; i just cannot figure what is the best hash/watt i can get with what card.

People are saying standard r9 290 is approx 800Kh  and 250 watts - seems quite good.  SO with cpu and 2 x r9 290  1600kh and 700Watts.  May be able to tune it even more.  290X 900 KH but runs warm according to some? not sure on power yet since so many different results.

Yeah, 290x is way warmer then 290 and 290 seems to give the best hash/watt...
