<50k PPD GTX 970
As the title suggests, I just started folding around a week ago and initially saw over 300k PPD.

After some googling I assumed it was the work loads I was given. I have since completed multiple WUs of different 'FahCores'.

Anyone got any ideas what might be causing this? Or is this normal? :/

Currently working on a core 21 @ 44k PPD.

(BTW, I am only folding on the GPU for efficiency sake)

That is low, a 960 I have folding gets 100-150k PPD. Is the GPU @ 100% workload when it's folding? It's possible you got a string of low scoring WUs, not sure what a 21 should be scoring on a 970.

Yeah seems to be. I am sure I have had different WUs tbf so I am thinking something is up with my client.

A 970 should do 300K PPD without much effort.
Some things to check:
Latest nvidia drivers installed from nvidia website.
Card has not reverted to 2D clocks.
Open CL is installed (should install with nvidia drivers).
Be sure you have a passkey, and have completed at least 10 WUs to obtain the bonus points.

Thanks for the quick replies guys.

Have the 373.06 driver installed, which is the current release.

Core clock seems stable although I am not sure if that is the normal mem clock.

OpenCL seems to be installed yeah.

I actually don't have a passkey yet, have tried to request one a few times now but the email never arrives.

Could the lack of passkey really lower my score by a such a large factor?

Little update:

@68k after starting this new WU. Still nowhere near the norm but shows how much the PPD can vary even running the same algorithm (core21 in this case)

On the current WU my PPD is running @ 375K PPD on a 970. Without the bonus points it drops to 100K PPD.
Project 11709 @ 3:21 time per frame = 379K PPD with bonus points.
Looks like you need to get a passkey setup.
