    My CPU is turboing to 3.5Ghz and I think is fully stable (100 IBT max loops). Maybe is just W8 since support is practically experimental at this point. My drivers are the latest ones (13.2b5) and disabled overdrive on the card. The CLBenchmark doesn't report any error whatsoever :confused:

    Is there any point in using my notebooks 6490m? it takes over an hour to finish a WU with it.

    Yes--my i7s take over two hours to do a HCC WU, so if the HD6490m does it in an hour that's a sizable improvement :toast:

    Actually, BOINC manager's estimation was off. Looks like it takes around half an hour.I was skeptical about running the 6490m considering how slow it is compared to my HD7750 which does 2 WU in 11 mins.

    mmm... seems like I'll have to OC the 6450. 6490m is 160s/750/800, 6450 is 160s/625/800 :ohwell:

    Thankfully I have a VF900CU in the parts bin ;)

    Wow, I'm really surprised with my Radeon 7770! On the first day it completed the 25.000 points mark and still going strong. Last time I crunched I only used CPUs so now this seems like a miracle :D

    CPU HCC lasts 3-3.5 hours :)
    GPU HCC lasts only 4-5 minutes :rockout:

    You can run multi-WU as well! :)

    I've got 4 WUs on the 7770, it's about 10 mins/WU

    2 or maybe 3 wu's. I wouldn't try to push it any harder than that....

    The Radeon 7xxx architecture is much more effective at this work than anything else out there atm

    I'm currently running 5 WUs on two of my HD7770s, and rather than taking ~ 3.5 minutes/WU it does five WUs in about 10.5-11 minutes. A huge improvement IMO :toast:

    I have 1 WU per card on my 6950's for now, going to try and bump it up to 2 later today.

    I think n3rdf1ght3r's running 4 WUs on his 6950.
