    Yes, but those are 9800GT Ultimate's(8800GTS 512 G92 128sp in disguise). A standard 9800gt will not hit those clocks/ppd without heavy volt modding. I wish they still made the 128sp Ultimate's still.

    I tried the clocks on my 8800GT even with 1.2v i still can't get it to clock to that. So with more volts it can be done.

    my folding clocks are
    700/1879/1000 (Core shader mem) can do more but i don't like the temps when i do so i just keep them at that

    Drop the mem & core clocks. It's creating excess heat.

    If your running dual cards, you must use Rivatuner. Make sure to unlink the core/shaders. Drop the core and see where your shaders max out at. Then take the core up a little at a time to find your high core clocks.

    Does anybody know why are we basically stuck with:

    nVidia = 384 pt

    ATI = 548 pt

    I'm running 10 GPU clients - 4 nVidia and 6 ATI. No exception. All of them with the same damn Work Units. :ohwell:

    The work unit may have the same number but the current work in progress is a different variant that uses more of the stream processors on the ATI cards and in a different way.



    The ATI card is more powerful than the Nvidia solution at specific things, jsut as the nvidia card is more powerful than the ATI card at specific things. Plus the benefit for the green camp to join is being redone to bring it more in line, jsut as the original SMP and GPU clients were high points to encourage folders with capable machines to use them, and now they are normalized.

    The 548pt WU on ati is, from what I've seen, the best one to get. YOu can get over 1000 more ppd on those... and 384s aren't bad either.


    I still can't get mine to get as high as yours... :(

    The 548pt for ATI is OK, but for nVidia now the best is the 353pt.

    ...but nothing like the good old 480pt with the core 1.15 (I miss you :respect:)

    Right Buck?

    I tried folding on my 8400GS but it bogs my system down to hell.. The CPU client doesn't do this tho. I am afraid to run this while I am at school :ohwell:

    got my X4 9750 folding right now! Only at 2.4ghz, tho. I have OC profiles set for gaming and normal usage and I don't want it running 50c all day!

    LOL, I had 5 of the 480pt running this morning and of course I always got v1.15 hanging around.;)
    I have not seen a 353pt WU in about a week...

    GPU folding on a radeon 4550 is slower than a snail. I don't think I've ever completed anything on it

    As of Sunday it started finishing 6 WU's at a time, but for crap points. I used to finish 2-3 every 3 hours, now I finish 6 every 6-9 hours for 1 WU worth of points...

    Not sure about the amd 5kbe but a 9400gt is somewhere between 700-900 ppd.

    so they will be about the same i think.. :ohwell: its been so long since i have folded on the 5kBE using the SMP. but i think i am just going to get a PSU for the 2nd rig so it can fold 24/7 then latter add a video card

    EDIT: from using google i have found that the 5kBE when overclocked gets around 1k ppd

    Boy, I feel dumb, my server is getting hit with nothing but 480 pointers, and I just injected core 1.15 into it.. 5100ppd to 5600ppd jump, a little tweaking of shader and now I hit 5700ppd. Not bad for a little athlon and 9800gtx! This is the card I run 24/7, so the extra boost is nice. Now if I could get something else other than the 384 pointers for my main rig, I'd be happy!
