The community needs good Crossfire-Friendly (or, exploitive) Mining Software.......and here's why I think so:

With the current price of Video Cards vs. the current ROI, it really doesn't make sense to mine for profit using a 6990 @ $700+USD anymore.....BUT...

Take 3x or 4x 5770 Cards @ $99/each and combine their solo-200MH/s power into a single hashing POWERHOUSE thread and you will have alot of people saying 69-what ? ....exactly.

I use 5770 cards as an example because they are plentiful on the market, give a great ROI (return on investment) and are Crossfire capable....not to mention, 100w/card.

Doesn't this make sense ?

1x 6990 @ 700MH/s = $700+USD .......OR........ 4x 5770 @ 800MH/s = $400 USD.

The money you would save on power supply requirements would go directly to a motherboard that could support 4 cards.

you can mine with multiple cards on the same computer without using crossfire at 205-215mh each i'm getting 400mh out of one 5770 equiped machine i bought used and installed a pair of them in.

....thanks Captain Obvious.

The point I was trying to make was to take 4 shitty processing threads and team them up into 1 SUPER THREAD, so during SHORT ROUNDS IN A POOL your 200Mh/s cards are struggling to make 2 shares/each when the 6990 users have 50+ under their belts in the same amount of time.

no not really there's no diffrence between what my 2 5770 cards and my 1 5870 turn in when they're both running at 400mh(combined or alone) regardless of a pools round length.

that only applies on rounds that are like 500 shares and whoever solves their share first gets the reward and everyone else fails

crossfire wont matter if anything it would slow it down i used to run boinc and it did work in crossfire and it would slower then if both cards ran work units alot  because they have to stay in sync if one card goes faster the other one has to slow down or stop to stay in sync with it.  6990 and 5970 cards have to run 2 clients on mining just like having 2 real video cards.

next time you think to take a condescending tone with people on the internet, you might want to double-check that what you're saying makes sense first Wink
