1 bitcoin is worth $160 now, and I can mine 0.15 per 24hr if i mine bitcoins, or I can mine 0.281/24hr through litecoins and converting it at the exchange.

do not understand ): but it's fine. I'll save it for another time.

Don't judge my 7200rpm HDD.

 

But yes, these scores are the exact same scores I got on Win 7.

 

In Windows 8, they just increased the 'range' that you can get to 9.9. Obviuosly

it will work. Just don't fry a whole through your computer

LOL SO SLOW. Judged.

Only AMD graphics cards are worth mining with at this point.

 

You might be using more electricity than you're generating bitcoins, so it's not a good idea for you to mine. Not to mention the added wear and tear on your laptop for no reason.

 

I have 2x 7950 and 2x7970, they nom about $5-6 in power per day, and they currently produce ~$35 in bitcoins at the moment (litecoins converted to bitcoins).

Ah mmk, good point there.

My windows score thingy is 7.8, I guess only Tangster gets 7.9 for his CPU @ 5ghz, but apparently my Intel 520 240gb only got 7.8 for the hard disk rating. tongue.gif
Yeah, I used to have 7.9 for CPU on 7. Haven't bothered with windows 8 benching though. Bit odd, since my old crucial m4 got 7.9 back with 7. Not that it matters, windows experience index is pretty inaccurate.

well its out of 7(or 9)numbers so its not 'deathly' accurate. But it provides an excellent benchmark standard.

 

You can go to any computer in a store, home, or anywhere and it will have the WEI up already giving people easy access to info and relative performance. 

 

It's computer IT/fixer's pal.

Oh yeah, I've been meaning to ask you, how/what program do you use to mine bitcoins? I'm kind of curious to see what my computer can do.

Probably in options then. Windows chooses what goes into the context menu though so you might have to search around for the context menu settings.

I like DefQon's explanation better.

Ugh, can't find a perfect gamepad for me...

Or you can just edit those to 7.9 or 9.9 maxed out. I did that on my netbook shown to a mac user proving that her macbook can run Win 7 through boot camp just as good as my netbook running it natively. Her face = priceless after looking at my WEI.

Meh. I never understood why Win 7 was 7.9 max. That sort of makes no sense.

 

Anyways, here are mine.

 

 

I have to say, I was surprised by the A10-5800K in this test. I sort of expected a lower score, with i5's and i7's taking the 7.0-7.9 range. Memory I could probably tweak a bit. Graphics is as expected as it's the APU's built in graphics.

It's legal. You mine BitCoins, then you sell them to people that want BitCoins (or buy stuff with BitCoins). There is some grey stuff around it, but it isn't really illegal.

It kinda in a sense does.

 

Talking about objective performance.

 

When we look at graphs today and bechmark performance, it is all relative to the 'points' or range that the benchmark goes to.

 

 

This graph for example. At first glance, it is a huge increase. But when you look at the numbers, its really not that big itself.

 

Microsoft's explanation for their 'weird' scores it that instead of being based on relative performance, it is based on real performance of a 'life' scale. It's basically an continualy updating scale that keeps on adding to itself.

 

Thus in the future when the scale moves to 20 with Windows whatever the hell, a computer we have right now would still input the same 7.3 blah blah.

I mine too. I know it's legal. It's just the way that he explained it that made it sound illegal.

Okay, bitcoins are a type of currency you earn by doing a process called "mining". Mining, essentially, is just solving a bunch of complex equations. One good example is one from PBS Idea Channel (go check them out on youtube, in fact, I'll throw in their video below on Bitcoin) where for one block of bitcoins your computer has to solve a Rubik's cube with sides of every color in the visible spectrum (of light/color), and that is a lot of cubes to solve, considering that there's basically an unlimited amount (and 8-bit displays/panels displaying 16.8 million I believe and 10-bit or 8-bit + AFRC showing 1.07 billion. I don't remember anymore, go search it up).
