increasing gpu production

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
i noticed that when i look at the display it only shows about 150iter/sec but when i look away and run a video intensive program ill see it spike up to about 600iter/sec, Why does this happen and how can i make it constant squeezing power out of my gpu. I have already set the slider in "cpu" usage on my gpu folding all the way and really saw no difference only when im watching a hd video on youtube or playing CSS does it really jump up. Before you say its just the delay i noticed i finshed my first WU alot faster that day than yesterday.

sounds like your card is downclocking to 2D.

Set it to 'max performance' in the drivers, and restart your system. Fingers crossed that will work - the issue seems to be a little random really.

What card is it, and which driver version?

Ill give that a try, but I think I have the settings on max peformance. Its a 4890 with I think cat 11.2 drivers

so i tried it and nothing... theres gotta be a way to bump it up so its always running at those speeds because when its not it takes about a work days length to get done but when it is boosting those high speeds it takes about half that.

open a VLC window with a video paused in it. Should lock in max clocks.

1) Do not open the viewer.
2) Not sure about AMD, but for nVidia, you get an overclocker, set up an OC profile, and load that, and it keeps the clocks at 3D levels. You could probably do the same for AMD.

Yep, sounds like your card is getting stuck on 2D clocks. I had this problem with my GTX 580's the other week, right out of the blue. After loads of reading (and not finding much), I just reinstalled the drivers and it's been fine ever since.

Not necessarily. I had the same problem as the OP and I'm running dual 580's overclocked in Afterburner. No matter what I set much clocks to, they wouldn't clock up to 3D settings. A driver reinstall fixed my problem straight away.

Ahh, not setting the clocks at a level necessarily. But using Rivatuner and setting up a profile, and applying that seems to have solved this issue usually.

Rivatuner? Get with the times Z. Its all about Afterburner.
post #10 of 14
I use Evga Precision.

But I've only heard of people doing it successfully in Rivatuner, and reading the previous post, seems AB isn't necessarily all that better.
