make sure load is 99%. Most AMD cards will kick in thermal throttling by cutting the load. 825MHz at 80% load for example is going to underperform 825 MHz @ 99% load.
DAT, thanks for the reply. The load on both GPUs bounces between 96% and 98% with a temp of about 65C. Strange that it's not 99% like the old card. I guess I'd expect about 30 MH/s less than the old card at 96%.
how does one keep the load consistent at 99% through just the bitminter Java?
Good thought, ZD84. Does anybody know if this is possible with Bitminter, or any miner, for that matter?
Also would be good to know exactly what SDK version you're using. I know you posted before that you might have changed the catalyst drivers.
Eveofwar, thank you also for the reply. I was able to verify that I was running 11.10 on my old card. I am running 11.10 on the new one, as well. Is that what you're referring to when you say SDK?
