    Question: I have an Athlon X2 6400+ rig with a 4850 in it. How should I fold on it? Should I go cpu only, gpu only, or cpu+gpu?

    I tried running my 4870X2 on both one and both gpus on my rig in specs, and even with the System Variables entered, it killed my SMP ppd, so I'm a little leery of ATI folding.

    My GPU clients have had back to back to back 353 WUs- would be nice to get those in the day time and the 548s now when its nice and cool :mad: Figures though :laugh:

    So after 4 weeks away from my babies I'm returned and I'm now ready to participate in the Chimp Challange. First up was my 9800 GTX, second in line is my 260 (new TIM and generally cleaned). The SMP2 rig will be up and running in a few days. Have to empty the crunching buffer first. Should give +30K PPD when completed.

    ATI has higher CPU usage. I would concentrate on GPU only as the dual core CPU's don't scale too well with SMP/SMP2. Any luck getting both cores on the card folding?

    I was noticing he had some good numbers going for himself. That should help a lot for the CC. :rockout:

    I got a passkey from Ion but i'm not sure if you need that for the gpu client. I think it's just for the SMP client so it looks like you're doing it fine.

    Passkey is not needed for the GPU client, only for the CPU SMP2 and -bigadv folding.

    Could I have the passkey for when I do my switch from crunching to SMP2 ION, Buck, Bogmali or whoever that have it?

    The 4850 will get more points then the CPU. If you are up to a challenge, you could Fold on the 4850 and, using an affinity program, assign the GPU client to one core and a uniprocessor client to the other core. Maybe worth ~200 PPD.:eek: You asked!

    Did not mean it like that but like you said it might have came across that way:banghead:


    I just didn't approve of his way or method coming in saying all that garbage:wtf:

    Yup that's all I'm getting. I threw a bone a someone at folding forums because of this server issue:shadedshu

    I'm getting 1150 ppd on my phenom x4 B50 @ 3.2ghz before calculating bonus credit. Then when I add bonus credit it only goes up to 3000ppd. Is it just an error on HMF.net or should it be more? I thought I would be getting ~5000ppd as thats what others seem to be getting.

    I'm getting 8200ppd on my GTX260 atm as well :D

    Here is how I see ChimPowerUp points so far.

    Column 1
    0 Stanford Date/Time ChimPowerUp PPD
    1 05/05/10 12:05 PM 33,199 796,776
    2 05/06/10 12:05 PM 980,565 941,280
    3 05/07/10 12:06 PM 1,924,501 942,479
    4 05/07/10 06:05 PM 2,150,562 938,579
    5 05/08/10 10:04 AM 2,768,263 935,963


    The date/time, score was pulled from Stanford and then I calculated our points and PPD. I believe my calculation for PPD is correct.
