Just got these 2 wu. I noted that my gpu's (2x GTX570's) are both now running at 90%, which is high for Win7...usually runs around 67% - 72%. Also I never had any screen lag, now it's terrible. If you suspend the Toni task and crunch another gpu project the lag goes away.

I like the 90% utilization percentage, but I could really do without the screen lag. Any ideas?

Thanks, Al

edit: If only 1-570 (no difference in which 570 is running the task) is running one of these wu and the other runs another gpu project, like MW, the screen lag also goes away. I didn't have this problem with any previous type of tasks.

They released a new application, that's why it changed. See this thread.

I found the lag on MW to be about the same, perhaps slightly worse, and it seemed to use more CPU.
Anyway, MW is best left to ATI card users.

I deleted the swan_sync variable and the lag went away completely. At the same time, the usage dropped from 90% to 78%, but that's still 10% higher that the older wu. Currently running a Gianni wu and it's back to 67% usage...but not lag.
