    I spotted this GPU2 -> GPU3 Transition Guide on the Folding Forum. The only links from the guide that I've added is the GPU3 clients so if you go to the guide you might find a link that's useful.

    Interesting Msgclb...I might just do the GPU3 clients with the -oneunit flag with all my GTX200 series cards.

    What's better, PPD of 7803 or 5999?

    For the record I know the answer.

    A couple of days ago one of my GTX 260 cards faded to black and became a paper weight.:eek: I had another GTX 260 to make a set of 3 for my MSI K9A2 rig. While putting it back together I decided to change over to GPU3. To my surprise I didn't get a FAHCore_15. Running the FAHCore_11 I was getting around 7800 PPD. It wasn't until I read the GPU3 Guide that I discovered my error. You currently can't use the -advmethods flag with the GPU3 Client using the 8000 Series GPU, 9000 Series GPU or GTX 200 Series GPU and receive a FAHCore_15.

    From the image you can see the my GPU2 is running FAHCore_11 even though I removed the -advmethods flag. I don't know why.
