    New beta Rig

    Hello TPU!

    I'm playing around with a new rig, not big deal config:

    A8N SLI Deluxe
    Athlon 64 3000+
    1Gb mem
    2 x ATI HD 3850
    Win Vista32 for now

    [​IMG]

    The PPD I'm getting is stupid - 2K for 2 cards (3850). My question is about CPU usage with GPU usage. The cpu is single core and 1 GPU is getting more CPU usage than the other GPU. Result:

    GPU_Zero is folding @ around 50% GPU usage. Getting 919 PPD.

    GPU_One is folding @ around 85% GPU usage. Getting 1251 PPD.

    What is the best solution when you are folding 2 Vid. cards with a single core CPU?

    I'm asking 'cos all my other rigs are dual core.

    Thanks :toast:

    Hello my Province neighbor! :toast:

    The error you got happens when the Stanford Servers are busy or maintenance. All you can really do is wait.

    My idea with the new rig is use my 2 ATI HD 3870X2 I have. With 4 GPUs @ 2K PPD each = 8K PPD :D - That's the dream at least.

    Cheers

    Nvidia Geforce 2 MX FTW :rockout:

    [​IMG]

    Seriously, The GTX 260 now is the best bang for the buck overall. I have not heard if the 216 sp unit is any better than the 192 sp. Some of those cards are putting out 8K+ PPD:eek:

    what would give me better PPD 8800GTS 320mb(G80) or a 9600GSO? they both can be had about the same price.I don't care about how much power or the heat that it puts out. The more the heat i have in here the better.

    I would say the 9600GSO - that gets around 4k, at a guess the 8800GTS maybe 3K~ish

    C'mon Buck! Give me a break. Sunday morning, and you ask me for results at 9AM???? :laugh:

    About you selling your nVidia farm: I'll send you all my ATI Cards and you give your nVidia's. :nutkick: ...hehehe

    OK, seriously talking is still too early and I guess Stanford is picking on me!! :banghead:

    Out of 8 video cards folding, I have at the moment 7 folding 511 points WU!! :banghead:

    Resuming:

    HD 3870X2 (2 cores folding) = 2738 PPD (both folding 511 points WU)

    HD 3850 = 1219 PPD (folding 511 points WU also).

    My folding isn't going 100% anyways 'cos now I'm playing like nutsy people!!! :rockout: GTA IV and CoD 5 are killing me!! :rockout:


    You got it silkstone! To have the honor of joining our TPU team that's all you gotta do!!

    Fold on!

    Arrgghhh, want to join, but F@H crashes my whole system. It gives me a driver error (stopped responding) even on low clock speeds when all other programs run stable. I'll give it another go tomorrow

    I just got an answer to my question forget the 9600GSO and 8800GTS(G80) and get a 9800GT for my main rig and put the 8800GT in my 2nd rig. That would pwn a 9600GSO and a 8800GTS G80

    Good job stanhemi! :toast:

    Looking at your fahmon I noticed that your cpu client has a 119pt WU.

    That's because your setup "bigpackets=normal"

    Open your cpu client folder, find "client.cfg" file, open it with notepad and change to "bigpackets=big". Save the file and Bingo!!

    The next WU you will get is a 749 points WU!

    :toast:
