I ran that in the contest too. I must admit that I crashed a 4x7990 machine by lotus5-opencl with --fork=32, though. There's some kind of limit in X configuration or/and AMD driver. But with just one 7990, --fork=8 works fine for me and provides a boost for these two formats I mentioned. For md5crypt-opencl, --fork=4 on 7990 is about 10% faster than --fork=2, but YMMV. For phpass-opencl, there's no such speedup, so just --fork=2 for 7990 (and no fork for 7970). Alexander
