Frame times with Catalyst 14.1 beta driver

Postposted on Sun Feb 09, 2014 12:12 am

I recently updated my video card driver to the Catalyst 14.1 beta driver, and I noticed a bit of a change in the time per frame on my gpu slots. On regular 8900 project work units, the time per frame has decreased from about 7.5 minutes to just under 6.5. It's enough to change the points per day from about 82k to almost 110k for my particular situation.

I update my drivers regularly but this is the first time I really noticed a significant difference between them for folding. Anyone else see a difference, or do I need to cut back on the brews?

I agree with your observation.
On my 7970 went from 4.00 min. to 3.30 min. frametime.
ppd up about 20k on 8900 core 17.
