I don't want to sound ungrateful or anything, but you seem to be wasting your talent on things that don't matter in mining. Forget about the GUI, it just brings bugs and its actually harder to work with. Forget the fancy auto overclocks and straps etc...

What we AMD miners really need is good kernels for profitable algos. Give us that and you will have more then enough money and users with a resonable fee for your miner. I tried using your miner a few times, but in the end I only have problems with the GUI and some obscure bugs because of that. And in the end other miners are simply faster and easier to use because of the command line.

Just my 2 cents, don't waste your potential.

P.S. I am sorry if I sounded hars, but I am always blunt and to the point, ubable to sugarcoat.
GGS allready many versions have command line version. GUI maybe used only for changing settings. You can not use overclocking, straps, etc. You can just setup algo, pool, wallet and that's all. After that you can close GUI and launch command line version. That's it.
zawawa spend many time not on GUI. He made a big work on tuning kernels. That's what you wrote AMD miners need. He works on it almost all time. So wait if you want to use it with very good kernels.

I don't mind the language at all. You probably don't know, however, that I did write the fastest kernels for some of the algorithms
before, both open-source and private. It is just that I personally prefer GUI over CUI and I don't like the user interface of other miners at all.
I will better document the command-line version and work on kernels.
In fact, you will see significantly improved Ethash kernels very soon.
I ended up choosing the 84 VGPR's version over 64 VGPR's version, and I am tweaking default settings right now.

I think your GUI is very usefull and in CN7 your kernel is very good, maybe not the best but very very similar result.
I love the semplicity to set up voltage and clock.

I think is a great work from zawawa, obviously improvable, but great.

I hope to see your new work very soon, I work with 1.3.7 and 15.8.1 adrenaline driver because is most stable for me of 1.3.8.

I agree, the Sqlite is really slow. Unless you can't speed it up, i'd prefer something easier as well.

My opinion on the card settings:

- Radeon 550, the Baffin is slower on GGS than on xmr-stak. About 8-10%, Where xmr-stak gives a steady 560 H/s @1150/1950,  GGS is jumping between 510 and 540. Maybe the algo needs a closer look.

- Memory timings: I posted a elpida strap for cryptonight, before, did someone use it? I managed to squeeze a bit more out of it for the bad memory cards, giving now 920h/s with 1150/1750.
As soon i good some free time i will check the memory timings and hand them over...GGS deserves this support, really.

Maybe this helps.


Although this is old, but i couldn't PM you cause i'm a newbie i wish to speak to you about the straps, i mod my own (actually experimenting). I find your straps smart though but most importantly i also have loads of those 560s (same as 550) and intersted to know on what basis you changed the memory learning part?

Uh, i don't really understand what you mean by memory learning part. I couldn't investigate further as GGS memory timings and Bios memory straps don't "fit". This seems to be because of the AMD driver that is dynamically changing memory settings. In other words: The straps/settings you put into a bios mod will neither work nor be shown inevitably in GGS. The values there differ from the straps you put in the Bios mod.

I think that he really didn't know that ))))
