    All ATI folders. Please update to client 6.23 andif you are there look at your log file to see if you are on core 1.22 it can be found below.

    [05:26:48] Folding@Home GPU Core - Beta
    [05:26:48] Version 1.22 (Mon Dec 8 12:57:56 PST 2008)
    [05:26:48]
    [05:26:48] Compiler : Microsoft (R) 32-bit C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 14.00.50727.762 for 80x86
    [05:26:48] Build host: amoeba
    [05:26:48] Board Type: AMD





    If so please update your system with the following to allow full use of your GPU, and less CPU useage and bandwidth used by F@H


    For Vista

    Right click "Computer" click "Properties" click "Advanced System Settings" and now clikc "Enviroment Variables"

    Below "System Variables" there is a option for New, click it and add the following setting untill you reach the best mix of GPU useage.

    Variable Name

    FLUSH_INTERVAL

    Variable Value

    card 4870/4850 256 up to 512
    card 3870/3850 128 up to 256

    When done open a command window and type

    echo %FLUSH_INTERVAL%

    Then check your CPU, and GPU use to what it was previously. Tweak up or down according to your wants for performance and or system response.

    This only effects ATI users, and only those with the new core, and only those that are seeing less then 80-90% GPU useage and a increase of CPU use.




    From the Folding at home forums, for ATI cards using the new core.


    You can use the GPU-z tool available from this site to check your GPU use and also temps if you are worried.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------



    I used this method and was pushed from 50-60% up to 90% GPU use, as well as going from 15% CPU use on one core to 2-4% use. This changes the packet size sent to the GPU.

    I'm currently using the FLUSH_INTERVAL at 1024 with no perceivable lag. Any reason I should lower it? I'm on a 4850.

    Anyone have F@H running on an HD4670? I'd really like to get mine folding, but it seems it isn't officially supported. It should pump out work units at roughly the same speed as an HD3850.

    Not unless you are getting early unit ends. With mine at 1024 the first switch to a game caused the unit to bomb out. Anything more than 512 has no tangible effect on the speed of processing or the CPU load. So mine is set at 512, and I have no lag, and no issues running games at the same time.

    To make the 4650/4670 fold; go to ATI website, searsh for SDK V1.2.1-beta.
    you will be given a choice and you want to click the link to 'ati.amd.com/technology/streamingcomputing/sdkdwnld.html'.
    after installing, locate your Folding@home-gpu folder and replace amdcalcl.dll and amdcalrt.dll with the new .dll files you just installed.
    restart your pc. Good folding on ATI 4650/4670 cards.

    somewhere around 1500-1700 ppd .

    I hope everyone else is getting their X-Mas gift from Stanford, because I'm getting mine. I have all 353pt units running right now and I hope the trend continues....;)

    P.S. I got 2 more cards coming online early next week.:rockout:

    Thanks, its up and folding, I really wanted to get it up and folding, since it is in my server which is the only PC on 24/7 in my house. So the HD4670 will be folding 24/7, I'm folding on my GTX260 now also, but not 24/7.

    Time for some free hardware!!!

    OK, some of you may have seen this before. I'm posting this because we have new guy's on the team. I have the following Free hardware available to members of the folding team. My intentions are that you will fold with the free hardware(i.e...set up addt'l rigs). You have to be active folding for more than 30 days and in the Continental US. I will pay shipping, but you must return the hardware if you can no longer fold for TPU. All Motherboards are solid performers and offer as much PPD as today's boards. I may have addt'l hardware to get you going, depending on your needs. PM me if you are interested.

    Looks like the new WUs are pumping extra points for our team.

    265,140 points yesterday. New record.

    Great success!!

    ;)


    Edit:

    Great offer Buck. Trying all the best for TPU. :toast:

    I have mobos enough for now. Thanks.

    Tell me when you have a GTX 295 available. I will get one for sure.

    Thanks
