The problem is actually the opposite. If you open the gpuowl threads, prepare to be overwhelmed.

Just so you know "kicks the crap" means 10 times the throughput of Intel and AMD offerings that use dual-channel memory. Maybe 5 times for Intel's pricey offerings with quad-channel memory. Not sure about AMD large L3 cache offerings -- maybe 6 times the throughput.

The downside is getting your hands on a Radeon VII is no longer easy.
