Since im a noob at this and just trying to get my feet wet with bitcoin mining. And i am posting here because.. well i cant post in the phoenix 2 develop section.. yet
Ive been trying to get optimal mhash/s with my 5870 radeon using the new phoenix2 rc 2 miner. First off im impressed im getting 412 mh/s which is more that with phoenix 1x there i had around 370...
Couple of things i would like explained
which kernel is better? opencl or the phat2k? maybe diakgcn's(has support for 4 + vectors which i could use with 5870? or is 4 max for my gpu?)
can i further optimize my config?
just the gpu part:
autoconfigure = False
kernel = phatk2
bfi_int = True
vectors4 = True
worksize = 128
aggression = 12
fastloop = False
#disabled = False
Also interesting thing... i could downclock my GPU mem to 300MHz but with phoenix 2 rc2 memory clock becomes important? i was getting 200 mh/s with underclocked then i went up to 900 now i am at 412mh/s increasing it further did close to nothing... so memory clock matters now?
And finally what the heck is rolling time? can i make use of the command expires=N ? as in optimize with that im guessing rolling time is letting time pass for gpu to the work and you can set it? to lower maybe?
cheers sorry for noob questions i am still trying to understand the whole thing.
