If you want you can send me the Bitcoins you collected. Smiley

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

Doesn't matter since their benchmark is bogus. None of the numbers are right, and they apparently couldn't even get the miner to produce valid shares.

Well as hopefull one could be with the new Tech from AMD, results like the above make me think that one should pickup some of these babies.

http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX32649 at $669 each seems tempting lol.

Yeah, but what if this thing can do 700-800 mhash/sec overclocked?

I'm sure Tom's hardware just pulled 414.7 MH/s right out of their ass!

Yes, the same place they magically pulled their tuned-for-79xx miner from.

I never go to Tom's Hardware, but if the 7970 can do 500MH/s or more I'll never ever go there.

Heh, after they got caught taking bribes from Intel to make AMD look bad back in the K6/K7 days, they appeared on my permanent shit list. I do not trust a damned thing they say, ever.

BULL fcking shiet!

Show me how the 5870 stock MH/s is wrong? Within a tolerance error, 376 was spot on

Dont act like your miner is a magic.

I agree with the general consensus in this thread.

I'm definitely not going to contribute to buying you a free video card just so we can get some early stats when we can just wait for people to buy them themselves and upload their stats for free.

I think I'll put my contribution towards a video card of my own, thanks.

Who cares whether you coded DiabloMiner or not? You get donations for that separately. Why not put those towards buying the card?

If my post helped, I'll happily accept a few bitmills!   15rGg6A1JFZV3b7TTbtpAaiYGdUD1e1oAm

I think this is a good opportunity for everyone that codes miners. Do not publicly release kernels optimized for GCN. Time to monetize the effort.

So how are they going to upload stats? Using an untuned kernel on a miner that does not work on 79xx at this time? Who is going to fix the miners so they work? Without a 79xx, it surely is not going to be me.

Also, how many donations do you actually think I've gotten? Its about $30 USD total over the past year.

The 5870 hash rate looks about right.  But how did they get 392 MH/s out of a 6970 without overclocking it, given the fact that it has even less stream processors than a 5870?

If my miner is magic, then so is cgminer. I get roughly 384 on my 5850 at 930, so that should be about 390 on a 5870 at stock 850. I don't see what the issue is.

It would be interesting to see how well the 7970 can mine but IMHO until some months after release we will never really know. We need optimized kernels and OC.

One person can't bring all that I think. Maybe make a common fund and buy a card so that each dev gets some time with it etc. ?

It took basically three people to make GPU mining what it is now. You seriously underestimate the power of a single developer.

I'd like to contribute my time/effort to testing a HD7970 if I could find a way to get my hands on one via hte common fund perhaps? or sort out funding another way (jobs,selling stuff maybe).I'll have to upgrade PSU as well as HD7970 needs more power than the PSu can handle.I'm thinking a partial subsidy is best rather than fully subsidising other people if the 'common fund' is used to make the most of the 'common fund'.I do like the idea as I need a piece of hardware to review for my blog as well.(the HD7970 could fit the bill nicely)

Wrd, if anything that 7970 should go to ArtForz first, as far as development is concerned.
