New version of CG miner has been released. I'm downloading now, crossing my fingers the 7970 series will mine litecoins better with it.

You can grab the newest version here: Index of /apps/cgminer

- Add more FAQ details.
- Check for work restart after disable in the hash queued work loop since it may
be a long time before we re-enable a device.

- Fix warning on 32bit.
- Fix warning on 32bit.
- Avoid curl_easy_cleanup on old curl versions in setup_stratum_curl as well.
- fix the fan control on max temp2/3
- for some reason network down. one simple cgminer command:   "cgminer -o -O fa:ke --avalon-options 115200:32:10:50:256" can idle the
avalon for safe power and protect chip

- Use replacement of work items in the avalon buffer as needed instead of
flushing them.
- Reinstate wrong work count to reset avalon regardless and display number of
wrong results.
- Revert "The result_wrong measurement for avalon is continually leading to
false positives so remove it."

positives so remove it.

- Check for AVA_GETS_RESTART when deciding if avalon has messed up.
- Make the detection of all wrong results on avalon much more conservative to
avoid false positives on work restarts.
- Show error codes on select and read fail in avalon.
- If we get a restart message in avalon_gets still check if there's a receive
message to parse first without a timeout before returning AVA_GETS_RESTART.
- Use only 2 queued work arrays in avalon.
- avalon_gets is always called from the one call site so inline it.
- The read_count is unused by the avalon get result code and no longer required
for avalon reset so simplify code removing it.
- Use a separate avalon_get_reset function for resetting avalon instead of using
- The current hash count returned by avalon scanhash is just an obfuscated
utility counter so make it explicit.

- Remove unused per unit matching work count for avalon.
- Rename the confusing avalon_info pointer.
- Simplify avalon scanhash code using the new find_queued_work_bymidstate

Yeah, with some more tweaking I was able to get the card at a solid 575 kh/s.

Here's what my .bat file looks like:

color 02
cgminer --scrypt -o http://address:port -u {user} -p {pass} --shaders 2048 --worksize 256 -g 1 --thread-concurrency 8192 --gpu-engine 1100 --gpu-memclock 1800 -I 13 --auto-fan
