My Current Thoughts on LTC Mining

Hey what you think about getting 270x and OC it
Friend @ 2:04

idk enough about it
Alvin @ 2:05

Stock gets about 400-450 hashes
Friend @ 2:05

Alvin @ 2:05

Over clock will get you about 500-550 which is same as 7950
Friend @ 2:05

max will pull 475 kh/s
Alvin @ 2:06

where did you see that?
2:06

I was guesstimating
Friend @ 2:06

haha okay
Alvin @ 2:06

no need to guess so hard like that
2:06

That is max at stock though
Friend @ 2:06

If you OC then you’ll get more
2:07

these numbers are overclocked for sure
Alvin @ 2:07

well
2:07

i mean the last one
2:07

you can see that the memory clock is at 1500
2:07

uses 230 watts
2:07

R9 270X, 100364L
2:08

ctrl+f “R9 270X, 100364L”
2:08

So you don’t think its a good idea? Cause this 280x shit getting stupid can’t find any
Friend @ 2:10

For 330
2:10

280x is reported to use 300 watts max
Alvin @ 2:11

30.4% higher power usage
2:11

gets 54.4% higher hash rates
2:12

I know that… But you can’t buy one those stats are pointless
Friend @ 2:12

Haha
2:14

right, what you brought up is another part of the analytic answer
Alvin @ 2:14

it depends on the amount of time that you’re willing to wait and what you know about card production speed to the market (nothing)
2:16

AND the amount of time that you plan on mining (I’m assuming that number is indefininte)
2:17

long run, wait for the 280x it’ll pay off in huge amounts
2:18

if you feel like 280x will never show up on the market again, don’t wait and get the 270x
2:18

I don’t know what the buy orders on 280x chipsets are
2:18

So your saying its justifiable to pay 430 for at 280?
Friend @ 2:19

I don’t think so
Alvin @ 2:19

I think it’s just a craze right now and you should wait for prices to come back down on those things in a couple week
2:19

weeks*
2:19

for now, if you want to get into the game immediately, buy coins. it’s possible that your money may be better spent there at the rate of difficulty increase + difficulty to find proper hardware
2:20

especially because btc and LTC are down right now
2:20

long term running inferior hardware is not a good idea because it’s already hard enough to pay off good hardware.
2:22

buying good hardware at +33% costs is just going to make it that much harder to pay them off.
2:23

all these undefined variables are starting to throw you off huh?
2:26

They are all contradicting at one point lol
Friend @ 2:27

So now its a waiting game
2:27

yeah~ I think we should all just play the waiting game
Alvin @ 2:28

I’m not going to do anything drastic for a couple weeks
2:28

no more miners
2:28

no more buying coins
2:28

just enjoy the roller coaster
2:29

And let your rigs mine right?
Friend @ 2:29

yup
Alvin @ 2:29

i think we all got in at a good time
2:30

don’t let yourself get raped with the rest of the noobs panic buying $400 cards

Mobile Web Debugging on your Android Device

  1. Install Chrome Canary
  2. Plug your phone into your dev machine with a USB cable.
  3. Browse to¬†chrome://inspect/# on Chrome Canary, and click Discover USB Devices. It’ll look like the following picture

  4. IF YOUR PROJECT IS NOT RUNNING ON “localhost:####” then skip to step 7.
  5. Set up port forwarding to whatever port your localhost project is running on
  6. Put that url into the “Open tab with url” field on your chrome canary and it will open a dev window for you. You’re done!
  7. Root your phone http://www.androidcentral.com/root
  8. Install SuperSU
  9. Install Hosts Editor
  10. Run Hosts Editor
  11. Allow SuperSU to give Hosts Editor sudo privlidges
  12. Add a new line to Hosts Editor that matches your dev machine’s hostfile for your project.
  13. Go back to step 6.
