v1.31 and v1.30 are both much slower than v1.21
No,the gpu clock did not drop on v1.31. I checked with msi afterburner and gpuz. Thanks.

if your gpu clock does drop too then either i can submit the bug report or i can do the screencaps and logs and u can turn it in all the same. i used gpu-z to verify. on my platform it drops to 276MHz from 400MHx (A6-3400M radeon 6520g gpu) even though gpu stays fully loaded @ 100%

Therefore, you should make sure that the same tuning is used among the versions you test and/or have a look at the parameter:
-w, --workload-profile=NUM Enable a specific workload profile, see references below
The current workload profiles are:
1 = Reduced performance profile (low latency desktop)
2 = Default performance profile
3 = Tuned performance profile (high latency desktop)

So, you should try w/ -w 3, to use the performance profile (instead of the default performance profile, -w 2).

2. pls do not test/benchmark/compare with --force. oclHashcat even warns you that when you use --force you shouldn't ask for help nor report any problems (including performance differences etc). It is also very likely that if you use --force (and the driver is not supported by that specific oclHashcat version), that you miss some cracks etc (and other strange behavior). So pls do not post any more tests w/ --force . Thx

Please notice that '--force' is only used to v1.21, otherwise the program can't start on driver 14.9 !!
Please notice that even run oclexample0.cmd, it turns out the same result. Even I add -w 3, speed is much slower than v1.21 too!
I don't think there was any problem in my tests.
