What's the theory of operation of the Utility now?  Prior versions it was the overall average.  Now it appears to an instantaneous or a small time period average.
Thanks,

99.9% sure that, That is what it did, Is it possible to use the kernal i saved from 2.1.2 for 2.3.3 Or must i go install old drivers, Complie a .bin, Save it, Install new drivers again, Replace the .bin like i've done before

Maybe.  Try and find out.  There are some incompatibilities between drivers but generally they "play nice".

Also driver =/= SDK.
AMD package installs them together but you can install/uninstall just the SDK.

So you can install the latest driver and SDK 2.4 for example.
On a new install just make sure to ONLY install the driver you want and then ONLY install the SDK you want.

The one exception is SDK 2.6 which is broken and an ass to uninstall completely.  There is a thread about it somewhere.  Another option is I think conman has compiled kernels (bin files) on a server somewhere.

Well the .bin files do not work with difffernt miner versions, *sigh* I'll wait a few more years before i uninstalled all my drivers, Install old ones, install old sdk, Reboot, run cgminer, Save bin, Uninstall drivers, Reboot, Install new drivers, reboot, TEST

No need to install old drivers.

bin = performance = SDK.

Install SDK ver w/ good performance.
Install DRIVER ver (ONLY DRIVER) you wish to use.
Done.

i.e.
clean isntall
install driver 11.11 (DRIVER ONLY)
install SDK v 2.4 (SDK ONLY)
install latest cgminer

I'm using cgminer on Windows with 8 GPUs. Stupid question, but how can I scroll up when I list all my GPUs?

I'm nearly sure on Windows switching OpenCL Runtime versions is as simple as placing the amdocl.dll you want to use into the CGMINER root.

That's possible, but showing all GPUs is 'longer' than my screen allows Smiley

Use a smaller font? 
Buy a bigger screen?
Use the API and a web monitor for more advanced display?

So would you say that the followng steps would work?
I have cat 12.3 (this is a gaming system) and probobly sdk 2.6 (dont worry about the removal, I've done it before)
so:
Uninstall SDK 2.6...
(Reboot?1)
Install SDK 2.4 (i have 2 6870's so i assume this or 2.1 would be the best)
(Reboot?2)
Compile the .bin
Uninstall SDK 2.4
(Reboot?3)
install SDK most recent
(Reboot?4)
Enjoy!

Oh, OK my next suggestions were going to be turn the monitor sideways and squint.  Smiley

Not a very productive suggestion, probably.  I have been wondering why CGMiner can't scroll like Phoenix can, probably has something to do with the variable status's at the top of the screen as opposed to the last line at the bottom.

Why on the final bolded.  The ONLY thing SDK is used for is to compile openCL kernels.  Nothing else. So why would you want to install an SDK you know results in poor performance if/when you ever need to compile kernels again?

To answer your other question yes 2.4 is likely the best.  I haven't seen any performance difference between 2.4 & 2.5 so likely either one works that being said I use 2.4 because it works and there is no reason to mess with what works.

Morning all. There will be another quick release in succession as there is a problem with keeping up with slow responding pools when you have mutli-gigahash machines.

Is this by chance making cards 'sick' more than normal ?

I have been seeing alot of sick cards today since I upgraded from 2.3.3 to 2.3.5.

Also....
What happened to 'B-F-Jesus-Miner' ? Is everything back on track for a single iteration/unforked CGMiner ?

No, the sick rate should not be changed by this code update. The symptoms usually happen on machines with >2GH connected to GPUMAX. What happens is that it starts submitting lots of stale shares and then eventually submits nothing but rejects because the network simply can't keep up at the other end.
