Sorry I haven't really be on the forums much lately... wedding planning stuff Cheesy.

But...

Any chance of getting a kernel optimized for the 6xxx series?

The is optimized for the 5xxx series, the 66xx series, the 67xx series and the 68xx series since they all use the same architecture.  Only the 69xx cards use a different architecture which is less efficient for mining (VLIW4 instead of VLIW5 for those who are interested).  I have debated whether to rewrite the kernel for the 69xx series, but at most, it would only increase performance by at most ~1%.

Phateus, would you consider to replace the Ma() macro as suggested by bitless and re-run the ATI optimization to check if it can be further improved? Bitless saved 1 operation from each Ma() call. Maybe, with some re-ordering, this can be optimized further.

In the current version, In addition to numerous very tiny optimizations, I have reordered the Ma() operands which reduce the number of instructions on operations with at least one non-vector operand.
Code:
#define Ma(z, x, y) amd_bytealign((y), (x | z), (z & x))
I think this is what you are talking about...

Anywho... here is my new version which is a very slight improvement over 1.0 (about 1% faster for me).

One thing to note is that you MUST put in a valid WORKSIZE value when running version 1.1 due to one of the optimizations.

 Post any questions or bugs you have, thanks

Yours gives less hash than Diapolo's
http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=25860.0

Using Diapolo's 2011-7-17 i gets 434 & 427 in 5870
While using yours gave 424 & 417, exactly a 10 Mhash/s less.

Ah.. there is a lot I've missed since I've been gone...

I will combine my improvements and his to see if I can get it lower.  Thanks for the info.

Alright, check the first post, I uploaded a second version today with a few tweaks (The Ma() tweak and slight reordering of some operations).  It should be faster than diapolo's now.

Also, anyone who wants to help with this or has any suggestions, PM me and I'll be more than happy to discuss when I get the chance.

And... Diapolo (and anyone else who wants to help), if you read this... We should work together on trying to improve this Smiley  I think it is a good idea to keep separate code sources to increase the chances of finding optimizations, but if you have any questions about my code, let me know.

not working with Phoenix r101

Phoenix 1.5 includes the phatk kernel by default, unlike 1.4. Just use the included one. If you want more performance, phatk r112 from the Phoenix SVN is even faster.

I am getting STRANGE results.
Using Diapolo I got 434 & 427. Both are 5870 card.
1st is MSI Lightning 5870 @ 957/319, 1175mV.
2nd is Sapphire HD 5870 @ 939/313, 1163mV.

From your Phatk 2.0, i get 430 & 429. No change in any flags...
434 reduced to 430, But 427 increased to 429.

I'm getting this error when i try to use your 2.0 kernel on Phoenix 1.5/Linuxcoin 2.0(Debian live)
Works just fine on my Win7 x64 box though, so guessing it's specific to linuxcoins default complement of packages.

Running windows 7, 64 bit

I'm getting [29/07/2011 06:50:32] FATAL kernel error: Failed to load OpenCL kernel! when I try the newest one
I tried with phoenix 1.5 and the latest 112 revision, get the same error

I'm doing python phoenix.py -u http://iopq.me:***@mineco.in:
3000/ -k phatk DEVICE=1 VECTORS BFI_INT AGGRESSION=7 WORKSIZE=128

does it have something to do with worksize? because when i supply an invalid worksize to the phatk 1.0 it also gives the same error

I tried changing the 'LLLL' and 'LLLLLLLL' to 'IIII' (like in the old __init__.py, but that caused a new error further along.

1st question, how is 0x2004000U in line 170 computed? Currently I don't get it Cheesy.

BAH!.. I'll look through it, tonight I am going to a Sublime with Rome and 311 concert... so this weekend.

 
1st question, how is 0x2004000U in line 170 computed? Currently I don't get it Cheesy.

Basically, since only the last bit is different between the 2 nonces W3.x and W3.y, the first calculation done on those values is P2:
Code:
P2(18) = rot(W[3],25)^rot(W[3],14)^((W[3])>>3U);

So, basically, instead of flipping Bit 0 on W[3] and calculating both W[18].x and W[18].y, we can calculate W[18].x and W[18].y will be the same besides bits 25 and 14 being flipped

Code:
P2(18).x = rot(W[3].x,25)^rot(W[3].x,14)^((W[3].x)>>3U);
W[3].y = W[3].x ^ 1, therefore:

P2(18).y = P2(18).x ^ (rot(1,25)^rot(1,14)^((1)>>3U));
so, P2(18).y = P2(18).x ^ 0x2004000U;
