Hello:

Is there anyway to speed WU on my amd 6970..

right now it takes 1:30 min per WU approx.

I think your 6970 is performing very well

Since last November each work unit is 5 times longer than before.

This was implemented to cut down on number of accesses to database as the

database was overloaded and timing out our requests.

Everything is operating optimally since then.

Oh and the credits per WU is also 5 times

Yep, you could overclock your GPU, but aside from that make sure you have a spare (physical) CPU core for your GPU crunching for optimal times.

Your card might also get greater ppd by running 2 WUs at once.

Btw, would be good to have an accurate time for your 6970 over in my benchmark thread http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/forum_thread.php?id=3551&postid=66771 :)
