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

  • Chriss Martin

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

  • Crypto Father

    Hey. Why the number 1950 in the bios? What's the magic calculation? I am running an rx580 and got a huge jump of 100h/s without changing that particular number in the bios since it wasn't the same for the rx580. Mine was 2000 so wondering what I would change it to in this case?

  • absurd207

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

  • TimoN

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

  • WarHawk427

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

  • Petar Luković

    Is this a hash with one or two cards??

  • 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!

  • Ahmad

    can it run 400 psu ?

  • Steven G

    what to expect from an RX 460 4 GB ?

  • 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 ?

  • 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.

  • sandinoise

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

  • fm greek

  • Matthew Horvat
