I recently started running Milkyway@home on my Ati (4890HD) graphics card. I've noticed from my credit that since joining the project I am now receiving approximately 25 times more credit per day than I was before when running WUs on my processor (Intel i5) only. Surely this isn't right.

Any thoughts?

And is your HD4890 completing work units in 1/25th the time (or less) than your CPU used to? If you're doing the WU in 1/25th the time then the credits (per WU completed) are equal to before. If less than 1/25th the time then you are correct, it's not right! They should be giving you MORE credit
