First world problems

So by switching to OpenCL they're giving some (much needed) lovin' to the AMD owners, but putting Nvidia owners into pretty much the same position as AMD users used to be in.....

Hardly seems like a good way to keep your user base happy.

I wonder if there's any hope in the near future for Nvidia's driver to better support openCL? If not, and this is the way forward I may have to look back into worldgrid for my GPUs.

edit: I'm trying to make out what your image is reading... I see the gpu usage up around 99%, but what's the power reading? Looks to me like it's either 85% or 65% which is the same issue that causes older fermi WUs (currently the 8XXX ones) to put out crappy PPD on kepler GPUs.

edit#2: GPU2 power seems to be reading 59% which leads me to believe that GPU1 is probably at 65%. No wonder the PPD bites, the cards aren't using 35 - 40% of their potential.
