It is raining here but pretty warm, in the mid 50's. Oh and I never have to work again EITHER, isn't retired life FUN John?

WINNING!!!

Winning because I have had a good work period recently, and should be able to cover the lack of income during my hospital stay and recovery time :-)


Ok. I win now!

I too have a similar problem. I'm new to MW, so I made few test runs on various GPUs and the results are strange.

1. On a HD7950 WUs take either ~40 or ~90 secs to finish. Are there maybe different types of WUs, or is this some sort of performance issue ?

2. The GPU clock doesn't run at full speed (600-700 MHz instead of max 1120 MHz). Driver problem? But I have run other projects here without any problem at full speed.

3. On a HD7770 I see very low performance (against HD7950) ~ 8:40mins for WU. In the WU dump I see: "Estimated AMD GPU GFLOP/s: 112 SP GFLOP/s, 22 DP FLOP/s
Warning: Bizarrely low flops (22). Defaulting to 100".
Is there some problem, or is this just because of the poor DP performance of this GPU ?

Like Cape Verde, Pitcairn differs from Tahiti on one point: double precision processing is at the equivalent of 1/16th of single precision against 1/4th on Tahiti, which makes sense on GPUs that haven’t been designed for professional processing.

Hi, some question here about 7950 GPU frequency. While crunching WUs, its jumping around 600-780Mhz(energy saver system), default core clock is 1000Mhz, but in result i see through MSI Afterburner strange picture - GPU core load always 99%, but core clock frequency - isn`t, any ideas why that happening and how can i use full potential of core? Or maybe bottleneck is somewhere in calculation code of WUs and it can`t be helped?


Try: Catalyst Control Center -> performance tab -> power control +20%?
