Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone else has this card and if they had discovered some sort of optimal miner/catalyst or something. Currently on the most updated catalyst and sdk 2.5. I've only tried GUIminer and cgminer and I averaged about 188Mh/s (I'm overclocked) on GUI using OpenCl and 177Mh/s on cgminer. Anyone have any other stats?

In the GUIMiner open File-> New Miner and run Phoenix, check affinity/pool/GPU dropdown box and try this flag

-k phatk VECTORS BFI_INT AGGRESSION=12 WORKSIZE=128 FASTLOOPS=false

Phoenix takes a little bit longer to get optimal, give it 2-3 mins it should climb up slowly, if it's to laggy drop aggresion to 7, but it will drop your hash rate too.

Sorry i don't have a 5870m to compare for you, but thats worth a shot, aggression can go up to 14.

EDIT: You can also try

-k phatk2 VECTORS BFI_INT FASTLOOP=false AGGRESSION=9

Mobile chips aren't designed for long term mining, don't kill your laptop!

Exactly. Not like you could replace the video card in case it fails. And if it fails, it's likely going to take something else near it to electronic recycling nirvana as well. (or, more likely some open burning place in Africa)

I'm fairly certain that by the time my video card dies, I'll be having other problems with my computer. I have good fan and setup for it so at the very least my fan would die first.

Thanks for the phoenix miner tips.

I'm mining on a laptop, GPU isn't hotter than the GPUs in my desktops.

Anyway, the 5870M is a tuned 5770, so probably you can get the same kind of figures and do the same kind of tweaks as with a desktop 5770.

Oh I didn't know that! Thanks I'll have to look into that.

And I mine relatively close to 24/7 with my full fan. Works out fine.
