    Has someone installed it? Is it still slower than 12.6?

      I have 12.10 installed. It works. I am just getting a bit more into BOINC and E@H, I don't have the prior experience to know how well 12.10 compares to 12.6.

      Examples of what I am seeing:
      I have a Phenom II 940 X4 @ 3.46GHz; a Radeon HD 6870. Have set the GPU to run two BRP WUs. Each WU completes in about 75 minutes. Three of the CPU cores run WUs, the fourth CPU core pushes the GPU.

      If this seems excessivly low compared to the 12.6 drivers, I may downgrade. !

        The reason why I asked is that the change from 10.6 to 10.8 brought a decrease of speed.
        I installed it now on one system; looks like it's slightly faster, at least not slower.

          I recently upgraded from 12.3 to 12.10 and have notice an increase in performance both here and running Milkyway.

            No, it's slower on my i7. Will downgrade again.

              How much of a percentage slower? What are your system specs?

                HD6950 i7 win64 pcie2 x 16 slot crunching 2 wu's 3 cores left free, normal dayly work system
                12.10 ~ 72 min
                12.6 ~ 63 min
                second graphic card is a hd 6850. Have not noted the crunching times for them. It's in a x8 slot.

                12.10 driver works better in my amd A8 system, have not seen a significant chamge in crunching times.

                    Updated my A8 today to 12.11 beta8 with .Net 4.0 support.
                    (single wu on HD5830)

                    first wu with new driver 2486.30
                    last wu with 12.10 driver 2732.08

                    This is an increase of ~ 9% in crunchig speed!
