    That would be the Sapphire R9 270 2048. Someone else more knowledgeable maybe about to tell you if that good or not.

    Finally. Not exactly the model, but it does tell me that it's an R7 3xx GPU, which explains the low hashrate.

    EVGA GTX 980 SC - 1.5 Gh/s at intensity 10. Increasing the intensity on this card doesn't appear to do anything for performance. I don't know if it's because of cgminer not being optimized for nvidia, or because decred is more reliant on memory?

    ASUS GTX 760 - 235.5 Mh/s at intenstiy 8. I may bump it up to 10 to see if there is any improvement, but it's driving my monitors right now.

    Looks like I've found 6 blocks in about 3.5 hours.

    Will be getting another GTX 980 in a few days to have ready for main launch. I actually had a rig set up with a few older cards for Decred mining, but I shorted the MB last week. Oops! :D

    Ouch with the shorted card, personally if your finding blocks i wouldnt increase any settings.
    Nice, well done finding them blocks. im am giving nvida a go tommoro.

    Haha.. i know i know.

    There are going to be a bunch of updates later this week.

    Going to make it more user friendly because it's becoming a mess right now.

    Also there are talks about creating a way to send your config/speed/setup with one click :)
    So lazy people will contribute as well!

    AMD Radeon 295x2 hydra edition: 3.3 Gh/s.

    Looking forward to summer when I return home, judging by that 500W power usage.

    Is there any reason not to go too high with the intensity setting? The default had it running at 7 and I was getting ~1.7Gh/s. I changed it to 5 per @thepotterone but that dropped it to ~1.4Gh/s. I then started bumping it up without even messing with my video card settings, right now I've got it at 12 and I'm getting ~1.86Gh/s and my R9 290X is sticking to 83-85 C.

    Upped it to 14 (as high as it would go) and ran it for an hour and got this:

    less intensity is less work on the card (cooler temperature = better performance) keep an eye on your temps when changing the I setting.

    Okay, cool. During my hour test temps stayed in the 83-85 range, so I'm good with that. :) Thanks man!

    Does anyone have a windows 64bit cgminer that works with Decred? I'm now using a 32bit version on a 64bit machine and I get half te performance I got using the benchmark in 64bit version. I could not get cgminer64bit 3.7.2 to connect and mine

    github page. If you use a 32 bit system, download windows-386-20160127-02.zip or if you use a 64 bit system download windows-amd64-20160127-02.zip.

    there you go
