my understanding is to use a windows OS to set overclocking up then dual boot into Linux.
erm, I'm not saying its not possible, but how can you load drivers up in one language, and expect.to load another straight after and have anything to do with the previous boot work on a fresh one, if that makes sense
ones is dos based, ones Unix based. my experience is they ain't related and don't mix
ATI drivers are still not the best either. wish they'd address that issue.
as for windows, this is the only thing I've seen windows beat unix, Linux, osx etc for anything pretty much. but windows does have more mature video drivers cause of gaming. 2.1 steam is better (10.4 catalyst driver). I get 400 to 420 mhash out of 5850s all day long in windows. the 420 is stock volt to, as it a revsion that's not volt moddable yet
can't wait for shapphire release new trixx
and you can't use xp, its 3.2gb bound, there's a gig at least on each graphics card, without including the RAM! 4 cards, 4 to 8gb. no good for me at least
I hate ms, and they'll never get a penny from me anyways. I'm suprised anyone buys there products at all tbh. I don't use anti virus (attracts virus), never update, never nothing like that. had an xp machine up for 3 years, not a problem, and a win 7 for a year or so. nothing. FireFox with ad block plus, no script and ccleaner and what else do you need. an iP changer/blocked maybe if you want extra security and use tor if you really want to be safe. just don't listen to what windows reccomends
windows can and is secure, if you take the right actions, at least as secure as osx which is just as vunerable although jobs wouldn't like you knowing that
end of the day its all opinion realy but I'm not getting nothing like the speeds I get in windows. 11.6 isn't as good as 11.5 driver in windows. 10.4 all the way, good 5 to 10th mhash better with pheonix and especially diablo miner and diablo is multi platform, may be worth checking. my stales are amazing with diablo. 0.5% compared to 2% on phoenix.
I don't know how osx or Linux could possibly have better drivers than windows, drivers on windows are infanitly better due to gamers and the sort. I'm sticking up for billy for mining OS
