    News About Folding with X2 Radeon Cards

    When the core 1.17 came out I tried folding dual gpu but was VERY UNSTABLE.

    Now with the 1.18 I'm completing almost 24 hours folding with my 3870X2 WITHOUT A SINGLE PROBLEM!!!

    THAT'S FANTASTIC!!!!

    PLEASE ALL 4870X2/3870X2 OWNERS:

    PUT THE TWINS TO SWEAT!!! HEHE...

    This is a quote from Google Results:

    "My 2600XT gets up to 1285 PPD depending on the WU."

    I have a 8400GS not doing anything.. Anyone think I can hook that up along with my 4850 and only have the 8400 fold?

    It won't work in Vista because Vista won't allow nVidia and ATi driver to run at the same time.

    Awesome, thanks guys! 3850 seems like the way to go. Now all I need is to buy one... and probably a new PSU. And Windows XP. And hope it works.

    Well, I still can't get this guide to work. I don't get it. I know there is a bunch of folder copying, and renaming, but when I try it, i get a bunch of errors, and nothing seems to work.

    Any nutshell methods out there?

    I'm still looking for ideas why my 9600GSO (overclocked shaders...pretty high) still only tops off at around 3000...I know it can do so much better. I have the right drivers installed for both cards (8800GT/9600GSO) and the 9600GSO runs in the secondary pci express x16 slot, but only runs at x8 (I believe...not sure if that even matters).

    Are there any recommendations or tests I can do to pump this card up to 5k at least? I'm really disappointed with it's performance thus far.

    Is there a guide somewhere that's easy to follow, cause each of my 8800gts's will do about 3000PPD or so and as of right now i can only do one card cause i'm an uber noob. i'd also like to get smp folding with my 5000 started so i can help out the team here lol.

    We have several teamates that are having issues setting up the dual GPU clients and optimizing their current set-ups. I am going to make calls to these members to give a verbal walk through on set ups and tweaks. I can do this weeknites between 7 to 11pm EST. Unfortunately, I can only do this for members in the U.S. & Canada. If you would like assistance, PM your phone number to me and the timeframe to call and I will gladly assist. With a little help, we should be pushing 200K+ PPD very soon.

    P.S. I have another 10.5K coming online by Thursday.:rockout:

    Well got my PS3 finally folding for TPU, going to do it mostly nights and while I am working as long as I remember. Don't think that my eeePC will be able to contribute any to the cause though.
