Would love to see 280x CFX (as I'm rolling with a pair of 1st gen 7970's) if you can eek them in there in part 2.
Love the game, but yeah, it seems I have to really lower the settings to get it close to playable on Eyefinity. :(
Bitcoin miner here.
Look... I'm making roughly $1600 a month now and have been profitable ever since I found out about Bitcoin in 2011. I invested in BFL, should have invested in Avalon, yadda yadda... I learned the hard way about how this market works. But I still LEARNED.
I'm tired of...
Great Review, thanks for this. I'm running eyefinity 3240x1920 and getting another 7970 is a no brainer for me.
Also, have you tried Radeon Profile Tool to help with the microstutter on these cards? Might be something worth checking out.
Had this exact board. 2500+ Athlon XP-M, DDR400, and a 5900 (flashed to 5950.)
Was a SWEET setup, unfortunately... as time marches on... it eventually couldn't keep up. And this was my last AMD build since I started building computers (about circa 386 era.)
Those who got out in time got the best of it... :)
those who didn't... well... :-/
Made some money while it was running, ended up being down about 16 coins. *shrugs*
I figured meh.. but thinking about it... that's going to hurt when each coin is worth $1000+.
Bitcoins have paid for most of Rockstar and Gir systems in my sig.
As well as...
5x AMD 145 CPUs (3 unlocked into dual core chips)
5x 2GB Ram
10x ATI Radeon 5830s
8x ATI Radeon 5850s
So yes, of someone decided to play hard and fast with 40k worth...

You know... there's a giant pink elephant in the room (ok, maybe it's a baby pachyderm, BUT....)
Well, most of us leave our computers running anyway right? I'd rather mine make money while it's sitting there and I'm sleeping.
GTX680 = 41.5 months for it to pay itself off (tho...
Awesome review guys!!!!
Exactly what I wanted to see... Nvidia getting the best of AMD this
Please please please by the crap out of these cards... so i can get my hands on more HD 7k series cards. :D
Also I want my price matching to kick in, cause you know 7970s are going to drop...
Hey! Thats not nice! I need me bitcoins!
Listen to this man.
In all seriousness... bitcoins are profitable and people are DUMPING hardware right now for FPGA's and 7970 cards. Getting ready to sell 4x5770's, a 5830, and 5x 5850's this summer and replace all of that with 3...
That's right folks, once again, the good folks at Comfort Suites has graced us with a place to frag!
The date is set, Feb 25th, 2011. Like always this is a B.Y.O.C. Event, but squatter boxes are available upon request for only $5.00 more.
LAN is a recession friendly $10.00, and gaming...
I'm getting 400 Mhash from my 6950 (unlocked) @ 900 Mhz
You're doing something wrong... more than likely have crossfire enabled still...
The 6990 should be able to do 800 alone.
Check your settings and make sure you have 3 versions of Phoenix running, 2 for each chip on your 6990 and...
Honestly.. I HOPE and PRAY team green pulls something out of their collective a$$es with Kepler. this is turn would push the 79x0 cards down to more reasonable prices, and no more competing with 580's and such.
I'm happy with my 6870CFX setup but I'm not much of a gamer anymore, and these are...
I want new Nvidia cards out just as much as anyone else... and I also hope they ARE faster then the competition... If only to push down the price of the 7970's, 7950's, and 7990's. Yes, I have a vested interested in getting cheap ATI cards.
Just so you guys know... any ATI card bases on GCN doesn't look like a good Bitcoin miner card. We're more than likely going to see Nvidia and ATI high end cards fighting it out for the gaming card, and any ATI 7xxx cards still based in VLIW4/5 fly off the shelves as mining cards.
I for one...
Awesome card!!! I'm going to get one Since I just got Eyefinity for Xmas, Moving out a pair of 6870's, so it's a worthy upgrade for me.
My only question (and I know I'm going to get hazed for this one but...) what's this things Hashrate for us bitcoin users?
