I have 5 of the 7970's en route..... they should arrive tomorrow. 

Has anyone tried these bad boys with GUIminer yet?  Didn't even think of that before I bought them.....

Right now, DiabloMiner is the fastest on them. I don't know of anyone that has tried poclbm (guiminer).

Can't remember who it was but some dude got them at around 720 or 700 mhash/s !

But then the power consumed makes your MH/W ratio suck !

Wow....I cannot wait to get some set-up at my "Free power" location.  I will push them as far as I can.

Yup, confirmed it doesn't work with GUIMiner...

I'm getting 640 m/hash on 1075mhz... at 60c w/ fans at 70%, on stock voltage (diablominer).

I was running 1125 but it was just slightly unstable and I didn't feel like bumping up the voltage.

So what is the consensus ?

Are CGN shaders more or less or the same in terms of mining compared to VLIW4 or VLIW5 shaders from 6970 and 5870 ?

good god....at 70% they must be screaming like banshees.  I can hardly stand them at 50%!

Quick calc says we're already a few % higher hashrate/shader/clock than VLIWx.
I'd have to take a closer look at how GCN shader ASM looks and what engine performance is like, but wouldn't expect any miracles, maybe another 2-3% increase.
So my opinion so far "pretty much a wash, a hair better than 5xxx per shader per clock, may get another few % when more time is spent tuning kernels for GCN".
Mining is really unique in how it manages to get well > 90% peak throughput even on VLIW5 Wink

Nope, haven't found any better settings than what other people have been saying for Diablo, best I found was ~2.2% worse than phoenix.
