I already looked into shipping to Canada($75.00+USD) and it just was not worth it.
Ishhh... thanks anyway.
lol yeah.. for 75 dollars you could pay someone on another team to fold for us
Added my brother's 8800gt to my farm, another 4-6k ppd for the tpu effort! Hoping I'll hit 14-15k points today...
Congrats on assimilating another GPU into the collective consciousness of the Borg...
Got any other family members that can become a TPU minion?
Looking at yesterday's points, the big increase has to be ATI, correct? Bah, no matter what it is, I like it.
Wheee! New record for me, 17.5k points in one day!
Had my first 6k day won't happen tomorrow probably but still lol
Yep, ati helped and a lot of other people had new personal records. Like newtekie1 did 10k more then his average.
this is folding related. if anyone has a PSU or GPU they are willing to give up i will be more then happy to have them fold for TPU
take a look at my WTB WFF thread http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=80081
I don't know why we have some very UNNECESSARY comments about ATI @ TPU F@H Forum. :shadedshu
This is not an ATI against nVidia Forum.
Even non ATI folders should be happy, I GUESS, with ATI folding improvements.
I bet, the 288K can be cut in half without all TPU hard work members with ATI cards folding non-stop!
Life is short. Be happy.
mmaakk, I meant no harm. Forgive my ignorance when it comes to ATI. I wish I knew more about the optimizations and the new core(is it out yet?). I apologize if I offended anyone and I do appreciate the hard work that ATI folders have put into this team. You have waited a long time for improvements in the core and I am glad to see they are here. We are a team and no one person or GPU brand is better than the other.
The ATI client will eventually again outperform the Nvidia client due to the more complex shader ability.
I still have 3 X1650, 1 X1800XT, and 12 more normal clients to fold with. If some of the older Nvidia cards supported folding ( In know why they don't) i would use them.
This is no a yay ATI, or Nvidia. This is a yay for everyone.
I love Buck's reference to the Borg heheh, we should all try to add our families gpus to tpu's collective! Me and my brother, who is now an advocate of folding.. are going to try to get family members to upgrade to cards that will fold (most of them are lazy and bought dells with onboard graphics..) and get them to fold. My brother is going to upgrade his kids rigs with folding capable cards too! Just some ideas to get us in the top 100....
Honorable mention, nice going stanhemi, good production day for you too! I'm a stats whore...
So can anyone using an ATI card with the latest optimizations report what card they're using and what PPD you're getting with it?
Well, folding with my GTX260 is a real pain in the ass. All the EUE ends are killing me, and I know it isn't because the card is unstable as it does it at stock speeds also. It really is annoying.
ATI users are still waiting for the new core 1.3. What's happening is that ATI Catalyst 8.12 has a link to donwload the GPU Client including the new .dll files that are already optimized for the core 1.3.

"Technically you can still use the older CAL dlls, since the ABI is the same, but this core has some optimizations designed to work along with the 1.2.1 dlls (the ones included in the client) and later dlls. We don't want people to jump just yet to the 1.3 dlls (included in Catalyst 8.12) just yet until we do a little more testing. We haven't found a config which fails, but we don't like to make sudden jumps. When cores optimized to use the 1.3+ dlls we'll post about it."
...so Beertintedgoggles, new results coming soon!
Thanks for the heads up, I'm trying to find out if it's worthwhile to sell these 8800GT's on ebay while they still go for quite a bit and jump ship to ATI. I almost exclusively fold with some gaming on a 17" LCD on some slightly less demanding games. So either camp is fine gaming wise, I just want to max my PPD with two cards (I'd be looking at a 4850 for the 800 stream processors).
Just joined the team
Welcome on Board!
How are you going to fold? CPU, GPU??
I had some F@H talking with TPU members.
If you want to check:
Hrm I deciede that once I get familiar with the software...
OK, but be aware that CPU and GPU folding uses different softwares.
I think its GPU... I need to get to know F@H better, right now, I don't really see trough.
Can someone explain what the passkey is? First time using F@H and I have no idea what/where it is
