[Budget GPU] RX 550 Mining (XMR/ETN) Modding/Testing

The RX 550 has been viewed by nearly every single youtuber as a horrible card to mine with. Is it true? Stick around to find out!

Due to some suggestions from my subscribers I will start posting my content on both Dtube and Youtube. If you wish to support me on Dtube you can find this video there: https://d.tube/#!/v/geekmark/kam16p2j

    does this have to use adrenaline drivers? because i tried with crimson drivers and xmr stac can not run.

  • TimoN

    I have 5 of them and get 70mh/s :)

  • Chriss Martin

    Can do test this with new SRB miner, it says about 520h/s for RX550 2G

  • Alex P

    Hey y'all, followed instructions to the "T". Applied the ati patch as well. Everything was successfull, no errors during the procedure. But miner wont recognize GPU any more. Ideas ?

  • disley unbay

    Very nice video. Does anyone recommend Linux over Windows when mining rx 550 ?

  • CKG1973

    Hey great videos. Quick Question, I am running MSI RX580 8GB. Runs for 14 hours then the miner stops mining. Not sure why IT runs perfect otherwise but every morning I have to restart it. Any Ideas?

  • Geek Mark

    Hey All,I forgot to mention in the video that after flashing the custom bios to the card you need to run the "ATI Patcher" and restart the computer before running the miner.I will also make a follow up video showing you guys some benchmarks using this modded card on different algorithms other than Cryptonight. I didn't want this video to be 20+ min long so I will include the other algo benchmarks in a seperate video!**Update** Due to some complications with my farm and other issues I have to attend to, I will not be able to release the "updated video". I have however tested the modded Visiontek 550 with these results: Cryptonight: ~475h/s (XMR STAK v2.2)Ethash: 11.92Mh/s (Claymore v11.0) - Ethash (Pirl): 12.6Mh/s with 1300 Core/1950MemEquihash: 72.3 Sol/s (Claymore v12.6)Lyra2Rev2: 7.5Mh/s (Mkminer301)NeoScrypt: 202Kh/s (Gatelessgate)Sorry for the hold up, I'll get back to posting more videos soon!

  • Steven G

    what to expect from an RX 460 4 GB ?

  • WarHawk427

    432/12 worksize @ 1300/2100 nets me 500+ per card.

  • Crypto Father

    So would you recommend using the RX550 over the RX580? as it seems that for a lower price, a couple RX550's should produce close to 900h/s.

  • Thomas Jensen

    Do you have any good settings for the new 2.3 XMR Stak?

  • Paul Price

    I have 2 XFX Radeon RX 550s but for some reason xmr-stak won't recognize them. When I pull them up on GPU-Z, mine look just like yours except the OpenCL box is not checked. Thoughts??I should mention I have an XFX Radeon RX 560 that works just fine. Hashing around 300 H/s with no mods.

  • sandinoise

    my sapphire with samsung memory just got 400h/s with dual thread thanks

  • Matthew Horvat

    Mark. Need some help with this and getting mine going. I’d be willing to compensate you for your time. Let me know. Thank you!

  • Petar Luković

    Is this a hash with one or two cards??

  • absurd207

    can you still game on a card that has been flashed?
