The reports of driver production are as varied as the people writing them, and I guess that's 'cause of all the different HW configurations. I can't say that I concur with what you found on your box. Here's what I had:

177.35 baseline for me
177.66 not much speed improvement, if any
177.79 a significant improvement, about 3% or so over 177.35
177.83 skipped this one, because 177.89 was released two days later
177.89 about 5 seconds per frame faster on one or two WUs, but noticeably cooler-about 3C

I get about 1:25-1:35 per frame with 177.89 on any WU I have seen so far. I've done probably 300+ WUs to date.

We merged two threads a month or two ago so the first page is a bit out of sequence...all the posts are there, though.
