An R9 280X has been added to the hardware comparison page. With OpenGL, it's either as good as the original 7970s or better. At this point, it seems to be way better than the 7970s. It looks like whatever they changed has fixed the original 7970 issues.

It's a felony and imprisonment plus fines....
That is if you could know it's me.
I might be stealing it from your house off of someone else for me  Wink

I doubt that, I have security cameras and watch my PG&E meter reading...

I get 750 kh/s with my Sapphire 7970s (w/ default firmware, 1080 engine, 1500 mem, I 13)

They're getting 740 kh/s on the 280x at 1100/1500. Obviously the same chip...so I wouldn't expect much different I suppose...but still a bit disappointing.

Well i have free power so... depends i guess.

Hope your not stealing it....Are you getting solar power? Or you at a college dorm that includes utilities? Or at a company using mining as a way to test hardware?

I'm also interested to know too, I find it so hard to reduce my electricity bills.

Just use your electricity during off peak hours and partial peak hours, that should help. Look at your electric bill for that info. Nothing is free in life.

The driver is in beta still, so you can say it's a fail yet. HD 7970 is a mature product and the R9 280X is still in it infancy. The price is the same as any other HD 7970 and will eventually drop over time.

I believe I=13 would be the highest point, some card just don't work well in high intensity.

In my area of California, we have off peak hours from 9pm to 10am M-F. Weekends, off-peak more of the 2 days except for a part of the afternoon. On peak hours are M-F from 1pm to 7pm, until winter time. Rates in my area are as follows: $0.1323/kwhr Off Peak, $0.153/kwhr Partial Peak and $0.3125/kwhr On Peak....

If it's like the HD 7970, it can do I=18, even I=20....But on average, most single GPU cards can do at least I=18...I do I=80 on my 2x HD 5870's and HD 5850...

Keep in mind that he just tried generic 7970 settings. He didn't tweak the settings for that card at all.

Wow, you must not be making much mining after electricity cost, if anything at all.

I'm currently paying $0.03/kwh for power and $0.04kwhr delivery. Thats $0.07/kwhr total no peak/off peak and I'm locked in for the next 6 months. That sounds great but half of my mining profits still go toward power, more than half if I'm running them in air conditioning.

I've been told that I have some of the cheapest power in the country, if that's the case, how does everyone else stay above power cost mining?

That sounds like rates in Washington state, but what state do you live in for those rates. I make a profit, just have to be very careful on the hours usage and what I mine. I'm just running two rigs, nothing too wild.

Not all 7970's are the same. Some need to run at 13. Going over 13 will just slow them down, depending on the card.
