I have recently switched my wimpy 6870 over to mining litecoin.


When I mined Bitcoin, I usually mined with the 50BTC pool.

My Miner would show ~270-280 m/hs and 50BTC would show my speed ~270-300 m/hs.


Now that I am mining Litecoin. I am mining with the notroll.in pool.

My miner (reaper) shows me at a consistent 330 k/hs, but notroll.in shows me at ~211-380 k/hs.


Does anyone know why there is such a large variance? 
Is it just how Litecoin is or is it Pool related?

Obviously pretty new to mining concepts/functionality ^

Pools can't see hashrate.  They have absolutely no idea what your hashrate is.  What they can see is how many shares you submit.  Depending on how the pool ESTIMATES your hashrate by looking at shares (over what period of time, difficulty of shares, etc) there can be significant differences in estimated hashrate (even between BTC pools).
