Yet Another Performance Boost of cgminer 3.7.3 for Heavycoin GPU Mining

1 Apr


AMD GPU owners mining for Heavycoin (HVC) can finally be happy with the latest performance optimization of the cgminer with HVC support as it takes back the lead in terms of performance from the Nvidia GPU miners. The new update adds almost 4 more MHS of performance on a Radeon R9 280x GPU with us getting about 12.8 MHS with the previous update and now with the new one we are up to about 16.2 MHS with the same hardware and settings. The new updated version that you can download from the link below for windows (source) includes the performance update and we recommend you to update now in order to benefit from the performance boost. And no, this is not a joke, but actual performance increase for free.

I just updatet my cgminer.exe with this version.
Now I get around 12MHS (6.4MHS before).

Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 XT Boost.
GPU: 975 MHz (default @boost)
Memory clock: 825 MHz (underclocked), default: 1500 MHz. This is more effective, less power consumption and no speed drop!
VDDC: 1.000 Volts (undervolted), default: 1.250 Volt

Power consumption (without display):
160 Watt @ 53°C – with this mods .
219 Watt @ 58°C – all settings @stock
No speed limitations at mining and working, compared to standard values.

Undervolting and underclocking is done with SAPPHIRE TriXX Utility.
