I've always gone with what was stated in the wiki. I'm pretty sure the same info is stated on the nVidia web site as well. I will gladly try compiling for 3.0 and see if it works. Probably not till tomorrow though. Will report back my results. thanks all for chipping in to help.  Smiley

Just reporting back that yes indeed, building for SM3.0 for my card that nVidia and the Wiki both state is 3.5 did the trick. Looking through the makefile of ccminer 1.2 I see that it was building for both 3.0 and 3.5 so that's why it worked. Some bitquark (quark algo) hashrate comparisons from that machine:
ccminer 1.2 = ~1200KH/s
ccminer 1.6.6 = ~950KH/s
A little disappointed with that. Hoping the share rates are higher to compensate but that's harder to gauge. I'll be trying 1.7 tonight.

With the current prices you will make $0,05775 of mining quark 24 H @ 1MHASH

Old hardware is a waste of power. Supporting the old hardware is a waste of time...
sp please go back to your thread... (your attacks are so pathetic, that it doesn't even deserve to be commented...)

ATTACKS--

Some of the attacks have been vulgar.  More than one poster has been overdoing it.

Have any of our talented coders earned a NiceHash bounty yet?

WOOF!

This is not an attack this is just facts. A well coded 980ti kernal can mine quark easily at 35MHASH.

35x the speed of the old shitcards and with 250W of power. Instead of 5 cents a day you earn $1.75 and that's enough to cover the powerbill and give you free beers in the weekend.

but money is about money :-D
Grin where are all the ideal behind crypto ?
when I started to get interested in crypto (jan. 2014 so it isn't old) most people were still talking about creating a "fairer" means of exchange and so on,
programming by passion (just look at the beginning of Christian Büchner thread) because it was fun.
Now every discussion in which sp is involved is just about profit (mostly his).

and anyone who logged to #ccminer channel at least one knows that Epsylon3 isn't doing that for profit, so when sp comes to his thread to bash his current development (and there are still hobbyist with old card, who don't mine for profit) this is pretty much out of the line (like many of recent sp intervention).

the problem with sp is that he thinks the other devs (you included  Wink ) work for him and has to make him or his release successful...  Grin

Why don't you release your profitable lyra2v2 kernal then. Since you don't do this for profit, share your work...

DJM34. I have published 73 (!) releases.

The latest is adding 5% in the doom algo (luffa512) 12.5% in the deep algo. and 100KHASH more in qubit. I have recieved 0BTC in donations for release 73.

I am sharing alot of my work. My kernals are the fastest always.


1.5.73(sp-MOD) is available here: (08-nov-2015)

I am not. I just don't see the point in using the old slow hardware for mining.
The tpruvot 1.7 release is faster in quark, x11,x13,x15 because he has used my blake512 maxwell implementation, still it's much slower than my fork.
He just need to copy the rest of my kernals...

Something is not right in the new auto benchmark of all the algos in release 1.7.

The 980ti is mining penta slower than the 750ti.
Quark is 50% slower than sp-mod release 73
Lyra2 is as slow as the 750ti
Lyra2v2 is 43% slower than sp-mod release 73

you know there is an irc channel #ccminer where you could discuss your issues with epsylon3 code, rather than writing message which can be interpreted as bashing  (if it wasn't the case...) where we (all the other dev) are usually discussing...

if you want to discuss code, irc is probably a better place, because you can have a "quasi" live discussion, here on the forum read by 1000 (hmm 100's ) this is not the best place as you get influenced by how you might looked in front of the crowd of potential donators (I personally don't care to be popular, which gives me the freedom to say what I think  Grin )
on the irc where there is practically nobody, one can expect a more adult discussion without the effect of "peer pressure"

I've always gone with what was stated in the wiki. I'm pretty sure the same info is stated on the nVidia web site as well. I will gladly try compiling for 3.0 and see if it works. Probably not till tomorrow though. Will report back my results. thanks all for chipping in to help.  Smiley

Just reporting back that yes indeed, building for SM3.0 for my card that nVidia and the Wiki both state is 3.5 did the trick. Looking through the makefile of ccminer 1.2 I see that it was building for both 3.0 and 3.5 so that's why it worked. Some bitquark (quark algo) hashrate comparisons from that machine:
ccminer 1.2 = ~1200KH/s
ccminer 1.6.6 = ~950KH/s
A little disappointed with that. Hoping the share rates are higher to compensate but that's harder to gauge. I'll be trying 1.7 tonight.
With the current prices you will make $0,05775 of mining quark 24 H @ 1MHASH
Old hardware is a waste of power. Supporting the old hardware is a waste of time...
sp please go back to your thread... (your attacks are so pathetic, that it doesn't even deserve to be commented...)

This is not an attack this is just facts. A well coded 980ti kernal can mine quark easily at 35MHASH.

Sorry to stir up such a shit-storm. I mean. yes, at some point one does have to look at the economies of their hobby if they want to move beyond it being just a hobby. 35MH/s mining quark from a single card sure got my attention, until I looked at the average price on ebay trending about $675 a pop. That's a very big investment for such a small return. And in 3-4 years when you've finally broken even, the card itself will have probably depreciated in value to pennies on the dollar. To really be in the game you have to be rotating out cards no more than 1 year old to get any resale value, constantly updating miner software to keep up with the flow of newer, and better cards coming out, yatta yatta yatta. I'll leave it to the kids. I'm too old already for that nonsense.

And calling it an attack I think might be overstating it just a bit. A little blunt and abrasive, maybe. I fit that description sometimes too so I try to overlook it in others. Deep breath, everyone. There. Doesn't that feel better?  Cool

Else yes, there are some weird results in the global benchmark, i even do a devicereset to reduce that but i've no idea of the reason... it doesn't look like related to allocated device memory.

Putting lyra first seems better

This is not an attack this is just facts. A well coded 980ti kernal can mine quark easily at 35MHASH.

35x the speed of the old shitcards and with 250W of power. Instead of 5 cents a day you earn $1.75 and that's enough to cover the powerbill and give you free beers in the weekend.
Sorry to stir up such a shit-storm. I mean. yes, at some point one does have to look at the economies of their hobby if they want to move beyond it being just a hobby. 35MH/s mining quark from a single card sure got my attention, until I looked at the average price on ebay trending about $675 a pop. That's a very big investment for such a small return. And in 3-4 years when you've finally broken even, the card itself will have probably depreciated in value to pennies on the dollar. To really be in the game you have to be rotating out cards no more than 1 year old to get any resale value, constantly updating miner software to keep up with the flow of newer, and better cards coming out, yatta yatta yatta. I'll leave it to the kids. I'm too old already for that nonsense.

And calling it an attack I think might be overstating it just a bit. A little blunt and abrasive, maybe. I fit that description sometimes too so I try to overlook it in others. Deep breath, everyone. There. Doesn't that feel better?  Cool

You should go for the gtx 750 with 1gig of memory. Pick it up for less that $100 on ebay. overclock the core to 1,5 Ghz and get 6,2MHASH@quark with a tdp of 38Watt.. Some time ago quark was paying 0.1BTC per GHASH, but the market has crashed. Most altcoins are not profitable anymore. 

$0.33 a day ROI in 300 days with free power.. But you can also mine lyra2v2@4MHASH

I've always gone with what was stated in the wiki. I'm pretty sure the same info is stated on the nVidia web site as well. I will gladly try compiling for 3.0 and see if it works. Probably not till tomorrow though. Will report back my results. thanks all for chipping in to help.  Smiley

Just reporting back that yes indeed, building for SM3.0 for my card that nVidia and the Wiki both state is 3.5 did the trick. Looking through the makefile of ccminer 1.2 I see that it was building for both 3.0 and 3.5 so that's why it worked. Some bitquark (quark algo) hashrate comparisons from that machine:
ccminer 1.2 = ~1200KH/s
ccminer 1.6.6 = ~950KH/s
A little disappointed with that. Hoping the share rates are higher to compensate but that's harder to gauge. I'll be trying 1.7 tonight.
With the current prices you will make $0,05775 of mining quark 24 H @ 1MHASH

ok lets get back to the basis: The reason why a coin is mined is to propagate and expand its network through many peers, hence you get a reward for that. Sure if you can get "rich" in the process, that's good too.
But pure profit has never been the "raison d'être" of the PoW, you do something for a coin you get a reward.
So may-be I am a naïve idealistic moron, but believing PoW is just about making money is a bit minimalist (and probably the reason why many coins are considering PoS instead, so that there isn't a bunch of greedy miners dumping on anyone interested in a coin).

What I mean, there are people who wants to mine with their hardware and support the network of their favorite coin and don't necessarily want to upgrade to the latest hardware, I got many request both for neoscrypt and lyra (you can see on reddit, they are people who just want to mine, no matter what. And you can look into other thread they are many request as well from people who wants to mine with the card they have.

So upgrade, sure I encourage anyone to buy the latest bad ass new shit (at 600$/gpu), but not everyone wants that and before becoming a "serious" mining farm you start that as a hobby and you just want to try (and altcoin/bitcoin community is a little more than getting rich fast  )

That was my first point  Grin

The second, you can ask whatever you want to a dev or another but as long as no-one donate anything or ask a dev to work (and pay him... ),  a dev is still free to work on whatever pleases him and makes a thread about it, without having anyone coming to shit on his parade  (especially when the person is using the that code and again there are other way to contact a dev... ) Grin
