anyone tried mining with the new AMD cards? Havent found any tests yet that include xmr mining.

Would be great to have some info on how they hash.

XMR GPU mining needs lots of memory access. So it can be faster. Needs confirmation.

 You mean memory of GPU or system ram?

GPU memory. Fury has HBM (high bandwidth memory) on the GPU die.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Hybrid server-assisted clients like Electrum get a lot of their network information from centralized servers, but they also check the server's results using blockchain header data. This is perhaps somewhat more secure than either server-assisted clients or header-only clients.

depends on your goals. AMD 290X gets the most hashrate, but it draws a lot of power.

the nvidia maxwell architecture is much more efficient.

What is the better way to get around 5k USD value XMR:  buy it at current price (190k) or mine it?

Mine it if you have access to a boatload of free electricity and hardware.

Otherwise buy it.

I have free electricity but no free hardware Smiley

then yeah, buy it. Otherwise you're looking at buying thousands of dollars worth of 290X's in order to get 5k XMR in any reasonable amount of time.

But what if I buy the mining equipment for several k of USD, mine and sell 5k USD value XMR and then:
1. Continue mining XMR or other coin or
2. Sell the mining hardware with 20-30% discount of the original price

Don't get me wrong, I'm strong advocate of increasing the network hashrate. It just depends on what kind of time frame you want to work in.

If you have a time frame of a year, then 15 kh/s will get you 5k XMR (roughly, and this assumes no change in difficulty, and doesn't take into account the decreasing block reward)

15 kh is about 18 R290X AMD cards, which is the highest hashrate card right now, which goes for about 350$. , so thats a GPU cost of $6562 , and that doesn't even include power supplies for these beasts. So it'd probably be around , i dunno, 8k USD.

IF your time frame is less, than the numbers move around.

for the AMD cards you can take a look at the claymore GPU miner thread. It has most cards listed with diffrent memory types (elipa/hynix). There might also be a change in favor for AMD with the new line of cards that should be able to match nvidas maxwell architecture in terms of energy efficiency. But I guess we will have to wait and see until someone buys a Fury card and mines some XMR.

yeah. most people don't mine monero for profit now. they mine to hold. Think about it - if you could've mined bitcoin with a CPU and a GPU and gotten 3 bitcoin every week, wouldn't you be mad at yourself if you didn't?

thats the timeframe you gotta think with monero. Years.



i wasnt mining for profit i was mining cuz i was interested in investing

If you want to invest, then buy XMR directly, that is cheaper than mining with CPU if you do not undervoltage.

Yeah, the main reason to mine right now is to support the network, because some percentage of the current network hashrate gets free electricity, so you're not going to get a lot of coins that way. Due to this phenomenon, if you want to invest, then the cheapest way is to buy up the coins that the free electricity crowd is constantly selling.

dont cost me anything to mine was simply an investment of time
investing money by buying them is the exact same thing as if i was paying for electricity to mine lol just might cost a lil less
cant assume everyone pays to mine cuz many do not nor does one always need to consider the cheapest method of investment when exploring options
i have many tools for mining including asic and pure GPU rigs plus i7 CPUs all running on free electricity
i was interested in xmr and when i said the comment about profitability i said one key word AND it was clearly a mere afterthought

Monero mining on nvidia maxwell hardware. I'm posting this again here because this is where it should be.

I assume you're talking about tsivs miner. I've found you have to end up having all of the below nonsense for it to work - probably some library dependency. So I could post my binary, but i've copied binaries from one linux box to another and it didn't work (forget why), so I just ended up following these from start to finish.

step 0: set up your miner box to run headless via SSH. This is the best way. You might be able to pull off using your video card and mining at the same time, but I wouldn't recommend it.

First, install an nvidia driver. I've found 331 works the best for a 750 ti.

http://www.noobslab.com/2014/12/use-nvidia-graphics-drivers-in.html

Then, go through this nightmare to install the CUDA nonsense. Start at Step 4, stop at step 30. 

https://d3adbra1n.wordpress.com/2014/05/03/cuda-miner-installation-on-a-fresh-ubuntu-14-04-lts/

Tip: when the long ass agreement thing pops up, you can hit ctrl-c to skip straight to typing accept. I didn't know this for a long time and would just put a weight on my down arrow to scroll through the thing. Or whatever the scroll was.

When you get to step 30, do this instead:

Code:
git clone git://github.com/tsiv/ccminer-cryptonight

that'll plop it in /ccminer-cryptonight/

then pick it up from step 35.

A reboot is required to get your video driver working (from my experience).

The, you can paste in the command line provided by the pool website, for example

Code:
./ccminer -o stratum+tcp://monerohash.com:3333 -u YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS -p x

Anyone mining XMR with a nVidia GPU on Windows 10? It was working great for me (using tsiv's miner) on previous drivers but when I upgraded to 355.78 I keep getting "result for nonce does not validate" error messages while mining. Now obviously the smart thing to do is roll back drivers which I've done and it works again, but, does anyone have any insight as to why this is happening? I'm not running overclocked on my GPU, it's properly cooled and seems to be an issue with the drivers and nothing more. Perhaps it's a driver/Win10 incompatibility. Is everyone still using tsiv's miner on Windows? It was last updated over a year ago so if anyone can recommend me another nVidia GPU miner to try and see if that fixes my problem, that would be great!

Monero Miners:

There's an effort to fund djm34 to work on the nvidia mining software

https://forum.getmonero.org/8/funding-required/2355/improved-nvidia-mining-software

As detailed in the post and in my discussion with djm34, one of the primary goals of his work is to increase the hashrate of the nvidia cards (why a 970 only gets ~400 is frustrating, when a 750 gets 250). Secondary goals are a lot of general software improvements - this first milestone was created in lieu of a "downpayment", designed so that even if djm34 can't get the hashrate to increase, he can still get paid for his work, and the monero mining community receives something for their money (improved GPU miner, for instance with the ability to solo mine - something that is crucial for continued decentralization of Monero).

Only 1500 more xmr to go!

How much are you pulling at the wall in watts running these 3 GTX 970's ? 

Can you tell me what your average hash rate is with this card?  I'm guessing 320-360 KH/s

Just an FYI for everyone... I've updated to 358.78 and it seems the validate errors are gone. I'll keep an eye on it but whatever changes nVidia made they've either fixed or reverted.
