are now publicly available.
Coupled with AMD drivers(1), it could make a free Windows-based mining platform.

Anyone interested in playing with this?

Notes:
(1) Latest version of AMD drivers for Windows 8 Preview doest not support hd7000 series cards yet. 7xxx owners please stay tuned, update should be available within a couple of weeks.
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.

Hardware = 6770, 935 MHz OC (850 base) , 300 MHz UC (1200 base)
Miner = CGMiner 2.0.2, default settings, intensity=4 (process was tuned to use one core and priority was set to realtime)

To change the SDK's I used I put the opencl.dll file in the cgminer folder.
When the Mhashes current value in CGMiner stayed at the same value for 3 seconds or so I screenshoted it.


Windows Vista 64 bit, Catalyst 11.12, SDK 2.5



Windows 8 64 bit, Catalyst Consumer Preview RC10, default APP



Windows 8 64 bit, Catalyst Consumer Preview RC10, SDK 2.1



Windows 8 64 bit, Catalyst Consumer Preview RC10, SDK 2.4



Windows 8 64 bit, Catalyst Consumer Preview RC10, SDK 2.5

Can this consumer preview of Windows 8 be installed to a USB flash drive? I know it's supposed to be a feature come retail.

Can't seem to find any information regarding this.

It's called Windows To Go (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_To_Go) and will probably not be a feature of the consumer versions (i.e. it will probably be for the Enterprise version only)

Was I helpful?  1TwmzX1wBxNF2qtAJRhdKmi2WyLZ5VHRs
