    As I understand hash rate went from 33 to 180 per card?

    And the six AMD Radeon RX VEGA 64 with the newest AMDGPU-PRO 17.40 Mining Beta driver jump from average ~33Mh/s to 180 MH/s in a twenty-four hour test run.

    Can some1 explain?"And the six AMD Radeon RX VEGA 64 with the newest AMDGPU-PRO 17.40 Mining Beta driver jump from average ~33Mh/s to 180 MH/s in a twenty-four hour test run."

    Yeah I was curious, was this a old-style-pro-opencl or ROC-OpenCL driver? The release notes don't mention anything about ROC...

    Why is Monero valuable? Why should I mine it over Gridcoin?

    Aren't Carrizo and Kaveri (I have the latter) supported as well, hence CI?

    but i can tell you the result right out of my mind from sources i know...

    on windows there is a mining only driver with the old closed source openCL stack
    with this driver a Vega-64 makes 43MH/s on the linux 17.40 mining driver the same card only make ~33MH/s

    for me the closed source version is not a option because i want to support opensource.

    But I am 100% sure the Open-Source will win the mining battle in the end. But it takes 2-3 more month.
    Thank you! Keep up the good work, I think this articles are extremely important!

    I do have an awesome 310€ money output per month thanks to the 17.40 driver.
    Heh, all this bullshit for like 200 euros per month (factoring in power costs), or 300 euros per month after a significant investment in solar panels and accompanying equipment.

    And it isn't even stable, rates may change at any time.

    OK, good to know.

    On the 1920 do you have one DIMM connected to each of the active dies ? I'm sure you do, just checking...

    When I posted previously I had forgotten that you had already added a second DIMM to each system, ie I had been thinking that your CPUs were running with only one of four memory channels populated. Didn't expect the extra memory to make a difference but I as thinking that improving CPU memory bandwidth would make the CPU portions of the work run faster and improve your overall performance a bit.

    I expect your hash rate will get a bit closer to "Windows" once you add more DIMMs. May not be entirely "Linux vs Windows".
