Intensity is the amount of work in one go the GPU has to do before it can return its results. It needs to be large enough to keep the device fully utilised yet not so overloaded that the device becomes unresponsive. The faster the GPU, the higher the sweet spot is. Ram is of no use to mining whatsoever. They could even mine fine with only a few MB of ram.

pretty sure most people will run into a roadblock with their CPU before their GPU.  you could keep increasing it and get some infinitesimally higher results except your cpu will hit 100% usage

i have 4 5870's on a single core sempron that i run at agg 7 in phoenix, because at agg 8 the cpu is 100%

Feel free to join my G2A Goldmine Pyramid Scheme Team, or possibly even buy a Steam game from there.  Maybe. ------- Dacentec Dedicated Servers (Lenoir, NC, USA) from $25/mo & Time4VPS Storage VPS' (Vilnius, Lithuania) from €18/qtr & Hetzner's serverbidding, from ~€20/mo -- had bitcoin nodes & p2pool (dacentec, hetzner) for several years on these.  Only two are affiliate links too, kek!

That is a driver problem. The CPU usage required to set higher intensities intrinsically in cgminer is actually less than at lower intensities.

I've been playing around with intensity setting in cgminer and noted on a 7870 when I went to I=13 I was suddenly getting mostly rejections.

So besides affecting hash rate, can a suboptimal intensity also lead to high rejection rates?
