I wonder if it is just my setup or there is a shortage of Nvidia WU's?

12 months ago, I was able to get over 9M of credit using the same GPU's as now. Lately, I am only getting 3 or less.

Whilst I realize that performance of various GPU's change, does this change mean that current users are penalized (unlucky)for not able to catch up to their predeccesors as they were lucky at that time and currently we can not produce the same efficiency?

Note that currently there are no Pwer (optimised apps). Is anybody working on this? The reason I am asking is that to me it appears that there is no incentive to purchase expensive GPU's if they do not perform efficiently and do not give much more credit than CPU apps.

Slicker. Another strange thing. In one machine I am running an AMD 5870 and in the next slot a GTX570. Both are running OK, however it is reporting as device 0 for both of them. The AMD5870 is running application colletz 2.07 (atiati) and the GTX570 is running 3.11 (opencl_amd). The 7970 machine will not run any colletz. All other GPU projects are running as expected. Just a thought in case there is a clue there somewhere. I tried all drivers by the way and now I am running the AMD on 12.10

Slicker, I am not sure if this will help or not, but i have tested all recent and new drivers for ATI with similar results. Currently all my machines are on AMD 12.10 drivers.

In a machine with a HD5870 and an NVIDIA580, the 5870 is quite happy crunching 2.09 (ati3ati). On the same machine the 580 is crunching 3.11(open_clamd).

In another machine with HD7970 I can not get any work at all and at one stage all downloaded units errored out immediately

Similar problem here. HD7970 with latest driver 12.10. Works on all other GPU projects but in here I get no work sent after resetting the project.
