Kh/s, Mh/s, Gh/s and ASIC hardware?
« on: January 02, 2014, 06:41:32 AM »
Hi all, I have a few questions, being new to the crypto-currency mining community.

First of all, I run cgminer 3.6.0, (it was recommended over later versions on the tutorial that helped me set it up), and I've tried it under both Windows 7, and Linux Mint KDE 15, and my system has both an APU and an HD 7850.  Under Windows, cgminer uses both APU and 7850, giving me 50Kh/s and 305Kh/s, respectively.  Under Mint, (which I'm still having some issues with in regard to the 7850), it only mines on the APU, but it reads 75Mh/s.  Clearly it (the APU) is not doing that much better under Linux, so should I chalk that up to a typographical error in the client?

Also, in regards to ASIC hardware, when I see one rated for 10Gh/s, is that really going to outpace my 7850 by the orders of magnitude I think it will, or is it another issue like above, and will probably only do 30x better?

In addition, is it considered kosher to use ASIC on lower-difficulty coins such as Doge and Moon?
