But as far as I know IL codes are independent of ASICs. So it shouldn't
matter whether its GCN or not.However ISA is ASIC dependent. So, did you
mean ISA instead of IL?

 Does this mean it was no longer stable at 1250 MHz core?  Are you

I think two or more john builds collided on the same card resulting in
crash after 15 min. Otherwise the implementation is perfectly stable at
stocks(I tested using pw-fake-unix hashes for 28 minutes).  And yes the
card is unstable after 1225Mhz core.
