Litecoin Mining – Radeon R9 280X hardware comparison


A lot of the magic in Litecoin mining is finding the best combination of hardware and cgminer sweet spot. I have done testing on most R9 280X GPUs and for easy reference, i would list the hashrate with link to tutorials on configuration for each of the card. This list would be updated from time to time when i obtain more cards to tweak. At the moment, it will mostly consist of R9 280X cards.

    First of all, thanks for your blog! It’s been of great help for me to get started on mining!
    Any news on the Asus tutorial for 750kH/s?

    1. If you are having difficulties in getting a stable undervolt with your ASUS card, you can leave it at default. For the ASUS is the coolest 280X card that i have experienced, where other cards’ temperature would go quite high when i started OC.

  2. cant wait for the asus tutorial.. i have 280xdc2t my config:

    “intensity” : “13”,
    “scrypt” : true,
    “shaders” : “2048”,
    “thread-concurrency” : “8192”,
    “worksize” : “256”,
    “gpu-threads” : “2”,
    “device” : “1”,
    “gpu-engine” : “0,1050”,
    “gpu-memclock” : “0,1500”,
    “gpu-powertune” : “0,-20”

    i get “only” around 710kh/s
    tried *everything* what i can find on google
