Question about mega-hashes per Watt versus mega-hashes per Joule. Does anyone have an opinion? Most people know what a Watt is but I think seeing MHash/J could be confusing to some people. While perhaps being more accurate, using "/J" might go over some people's heads, especially since the edit was given with little to no explanation. Vast 06:45, 19 April 2011 (GMT)

How about adding a note about what a Joule is somewhere people will see? --TiagoTiago 21:40, 9 May 2011 (GMT)
Hmmmmm... if only there was an online encyclopedia people could look it up in... Physics 06:52, 13 May 2011 (GMT)

Is the note about the AMD Stream SDK valid anymore? Looking down the list it seems people are doing just as well and sometimes better on the 2.3 and 2.4 SDK as compared to the 2.1. Tybeet 23:04, 5 May 2011 (GMT)

It depends on the mining application and the OpenCL kernel used I think. Phoenix with phatk mines faster on SDK 2.4 than on SDK 2.1 under 32-bit Windows 7. Icaci 18:27, 29 May 2011 (GMT)

Color Coding

What is the color coding indicative of?

I think it is just a way to easily group cards of each type Fnord123 15:44, 23 May 2011 (GMT)

Power Calculation

How do people calculate power? I took the idle power numbers from Tom's Hardware, then measured incremental power w/a Kill-A-Watt when hashing on my ATI 6970 (its the one w/1.96 Mhashes/W). Fnord123 15:42, 23 May 2011 (GMT)

OS Listing

Think extracting out an OS column would be useful? Possibly OS version or architecture as well.
