Hello, as the title states no matter what I do, I cannot get past 640. First off, some info with my card:

http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/129658/sapphire-hd7970-3072-120926.html

That is my exact card. My card also has the same bios: 015.025.000.099.000000

After extensive testing, and overclocking, my best settings are
Code:
--scrypt -o stratum+tcp://ftc.give-me-coins.com:3336 -u microzee.ftc -p 7623 --thread-concurrency 8192 -I 13 -g 2 -w 256 --shaders 2048 --lookup-gap 2

And you guessed it. The default values.

I have done overclocking, which reduces my values to around 630 or less. I can run a stable memclock at 1700, and I have tried various gpu clocks, all of which do not help that much I also never see a significant drop, so I can never find the "sweet spot." Also, I thought you were supposed to run the highest thread-concurrency your gpu can take, but that also lowers my values. I found that I can run up to 20480. What can I do?

Please don't just post your settings and ask me to try them out especially if they have gpu-engine and memclock settings because that all depends on your certain card. Instead have me run tests or something.

Only use shader or tc, not both, it will override with the shader count. I run 1080core/1500mem at 1.1 volts with 20% power tune and get ~750 kh/s.

Do you recommend shaders or thread-concurrency? I'm getting ~660 right now, but I would still like to get into the 700 range. Any other advice?

tc

I've tried shaders before and it would only do 640~680 for me.

Try using this configuration. I get 744khash with kalroth cgminer from here: http://k-dev.net/cgminer/

Code:
setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
color 0F
cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://eu.wafflepool.com:3333 -u 1PdHRDrRxBsohPRJMxTa5cVLNriEbJUhdP -p x --thread-concurrency 11200 -I 13 --gpu-engine 1055 --gpu-memclock 1500 -w 256 -g 2 --no-submit-stale --lookup-gap 2 --failover-only -o stratum+tcp://backupPool -u user -p pass

I got it up to 670 now, getting better, using optimized cgminer. I am not using your settings though because your tc, gpu-engine, and memclock all take it down to 620.

How do I use optimized scrypt binaries? there weren't any instructions that I could find in the thread.
