If the BTC community buys me a 7970, I will benchmark and tune DiabloMiner and cgminer for it. No one has released valid benchmark numbers, and I'm tired of the bullshit, and I expect everyone else is too.

Send BTC to 1DbeWKCxnVCt3sRaSAmZLoboqr8pVyFzP1 and help make this happen.

Since the 79xx series does not grow on trees, I shall be donating a few coins to help the cause.

I read that article, and they didn't seem to know shit about bitcoin mining.

Read the article, they say shit like "bitmining" and "server wouldn't verify so we had to solo mine". I have no clue what they were smoking, but all I wanted was answers like which miner they used, what args they used with it, and etc etc.

tl;dr: fucking mass media, how does it work

Edit: Also, their testing methodology is bullshit. From my calculations, a 5870 should be around 390 mhash at stock.

The 7970 doesn't produce valid shares with any miner out right now.

Your asking the community to buy you a brandnew Top of the line (most likely not even out on the market yet) video card.

"for legit 7970 test/bench(s)"

Dude your a moderator, what the hell is this

Or contact the manufacturer with your credentials ask them for a card for evaluation and benchmarking purposes, go through their verification process and receive one shipped directly from them. Though your reviews and results into a coherent and consistent blog, get several hundred thousand subscribers and get similar cards from lots of manufacturers, along with mobo's, psu's and all sorts of other goodies for evaluation.

It worked for Tom's Hardware, and is a very traditional path to working with pre-release evaluation copies of products.

The discussion of DiabloD3's conflict of interest in sticking this post has been removed for being off-topic. I have forwarded the concerns to theymos for evaluation. If you would like to continue that discussion, please do so in Meta.

I do NOT want to keep deleting off-topic posts in this thread. Next person who posts off-topic will be referred to theymos to be banned. If you want to complain about this being a sticky, there is a post in Meta for that. Here, I'll even link it:

This thread is weird.   No offence, but no I'm not going to help buy you a free video card.    Anyone could have made this thread and said the same thing (and I've never used DiabloMiner so that doesn't particularly sway me).

I'm quite happy to wait for release when we'll get a million reviews from people who buy the cards on this forum anyway.

Have you mined Bitcoin on your GPU before?  Did you write your own mining software from scratch, or did you use one that a skilled developer wrote for you?  Did you pay them?

Anyone could have made this thread and said the same thing (and I've never used DiabloMiner so that doesn't particularly sway me).
Yes.  Anyone could have.  Anyone can write a GPU miner.  My grandma has written two of them.  Blindfolded.

I'm quite happy to wait for release when we'll get a million reviews from people who buy the cards on this forum anyway.
Yes.  The card will be released, people will buy them, and then all mining software will magically just start working with the new architecture.  Honest.


This type of mentality pisses me off.  If you head over to a place like xda-developers (Android phone developers forums), you'll find people who regularly kick in a few bucks to a skilled developer to get them a phone because they'd love to see a decent ROM made for their device.  A skilled developer makes a similar post on the Bitcoin forums and people just shit on him.  If you're currently mining and you've made a fair donation to the dev who wrote your miner, I'll gladly eat crow.  Otherwise, do the community a favor and stop posting selfish crap like this.

I use cgminer which has a built in donation option that I've chosen to enable.  The Dev gets a regular percentage of all my mining activity.  Eat away.

I guess I'm not in such a desperate rush to get results for this card when its just going to happen naturally anyway.    Diablo is just some random on the inernet to me, but if others are desperate enough to buy him a new card, then good for him I suppose.

Happy Christmas.

Don't forget that to get this results the voltage is over 250W vs the 5870 190w.
