I have a 5870 in my Mac Pro1,1.  I tried out in 10.6 Snow Leopard, which yielded an average of 140MH/s.

After an upgrade to 10.7 Lion, I now see an average of 273MH/s.

I'm not exactly sure why the change appears so drastic.  Perhaps it was an upgrade to the ATI drivers and/or OpenCL framework.  Or perhaps 10.7's UI is just much more efficient with its use of the GPU for acceleration.  (Java version is still 1.6)

Either way, it was a welcome bump in my mining efforts.  Smiley But I think perhaps it could still perform better by booting into Ubuntu.

Bears.  Beets.  Battlestar Galactica.  Bitcoin.
