    Conducting a little experiment, fired up my 9800gtx to see the difference in ppd on the 420 pointers. Also wanted to see if the 8800gs would pull down the ppd of the 9800 as they are in the same box. Results: 9800gtx 5259ppd, 8800gs 2903ppd. Conclusions? Edit: the gtx just jumped to 5336ppd, the 8800gs stay at or below 2900ppd.

    Do you have the 8800GS overclocked?

    edited mah bear :D (chantards will know what it is ;))

    Will be folding when I go on my driving lesson . . . also downloading starcraft . . . should be quite productive!

    *edit*

    That WU finished pretty much as soon as I got back from my lesson - then I got slapped in the face by this big bastard

    [​IMG]

    Ill crunch through it tomorrow whilst im at work. Think of the points ill get :D

    Hey Buck, yes, the 8800gs is at a whopping 756/1728/800 oc! The 9800gtx is at 756/1782/1100, so darn near the same clocks. Didn't think those extra few shaders would make such a difference.

    It's not just the shaders. It's the memory bitrate that affects it also.

    Oh great, now I can't get new jobs from the server, hope this doesn't last for too long! Edit: nevermind, it finally came back....

    I just noticed that these newer 5900 WU's have some interesting values. I've been doing a lot of 420Pt WU's under the 5900 series on my GTX260, averaging in the mid-8k range, but I fired up the G/F's 9600GT, and it somehow picked up this monster, that point value is close to the SMP Wu's my Q6600 is churning away!

    Well my GTX just got one of those 5903's! 1680 pointer...I must've chosen higher than 10mb WU's when I set the clients up lol, never seeing anything this large before is interesting to say the least, but that's a long complete time for completion on a GPU WU imo. Here's a new screeny:

    So overall clocks produce higher PPD? Ive been running my 260 @ 650 / 1585 / 850 - would a higher core clock increase my productivity?

    Shaders are King in f@H. Then comes CPU and then Memory

    i just reinstalled winXP on my computer, when you install F@H does it write enteries tot he registry or can i just run the programs from the .exe, i saved the f@H related files and folders but i wasn't sure what goes on.

    Please read the sticky's

    From another ATI Folder: You've never gotten the 548pt wu's? I get the same PPD on those as I do on the 384's. And yes, my lowest PPD's are on the 511's. I've never gotten anything bigger than the 548's.

    Well, those 5903s eventually throw guarded run errors on both of my cards. 4hrs worth of work gone on one and a couple more on the other. Thankfully my 9800 got a 5763 job, so I'll at least get some points today!

    Haven't seen any errors yet, and I don't know how long our rigs have been folding them, I just happened to notice, I just think that's a large WU for a GPU...I liked the thought of the smaller ones for the simple fact of fewer interruptions and less chance of corruption/errors. It's all good, I'll let my rig continue on folding away!

    Wow - left my rig on for the final 4 hours of this 1680 pointer this morning - got back, and its 4% through ANOTHER 1680 pointer! :D

    Can you run it 24/7? Alot of people think the rigs need rest, but this truly is not the case.

    not really - the power it consumes is one thing, but the noise at night is unbearable for me, plus I game alot so you know. I fold for atleast 4 hours a day though.
