hello fellow milkyway crunchers

we got a problem over here.

so usually, my 280x takes 23 seconds to finish 1 1.02 wu @1170mhz.
paused a few weeks in which i didnt crunch at all, now i started again, with the complete same setup etc. and the wu takes 26 seconds for some reason. (usually it took 25 at standard clock 1080mhz)

any explanations?

-nothing gets too warm, neither the card itself nor my cpu has to downclock due to temperatures
-same boinc version
-i changed literally nothing

could this be a sign of card deterioration?

thanks in advance!

edit: btw, i do not recognize any signs of deterioration/artifacts/lags/whatsoever in 3d applications(in my case, worldofwarcraft; counterstrike)

Maybe they changed the workunits to a new version?
