I didn't receive any workunits.

Hey Tim,

That may be a sign that you can run more than one work unit without slowing your work units down. Have you tried running multiple work units on your GPU concurrently?


Hi Jake,
there are running 8 WUs per GPU. So im crunching 24 WUs on all 3 GPU simultaneously.

Hello Tim,

Yes, you are right the Numbers are wrong. The numbers of my AMD cards are there where they should be.

I will test MW on my Titan blacks tomorrow.

Did you enable inside the driver the double precision option? If this is disabled, then the double precison number could be true. And even when you get the Titan Blacks fully utilized, then it is slower than a AMD card with one Terraflop.

Nvidia does not really care about OpenCL, they still pushing CUDA. So OpenCL is not optimized very well.

Double Precision is activated.

@Jake Weiss, I think there is something wrong with you identification or calculation for the estimated GFLOP/s of my grafic cards. How you can see in the log file of my WU's.
Estimated Nvidia GPU GFLOP/s: 1066 SP GFLOP/s, 133 DP FLOP/s

But this cards should have more power, something similar to this data 5120 SP GFLOP/s, 1706 DP FLOP/s.
