    Open beta release of the GPU3 core

    I first saw this Open beta release of the GPU3 core topic.

    That refers you back to the original Open beta release of the GPU3 core topic.

    At first I din't see any mention of the GTX 400 series GPUs in the FAQ. After reading this Third generation GPU client on NVIDIA hardware (GPU3) FAQ several times I finally see it!:rolleyes:

    Anybody have a Tesla card?

    So do you turn off the whole rigs, or just kill the GPU clients? Depending on the temps, I usually just kill F@H on the GTX260, and leave WCG crunching away on the X4 955

    I just kill F@H and leave it running WCG only. Maybe what I can do is alternate it :) WCG one night, F@H the other. What do you think?

    Well, I honestly prefer WCG as a DC project and I'd rather run it, given a choice (hence why I crunch on the CPUs and fold on the GPUs), but it's your hardware, so it's up to you to decide what you do with it. The 2 HD5770s probably suck down more power and put out more heat than even the OC'ed i7

    Well I only have one 5770 folding so that I can have the rig in Crossfire. I'll build a dedicated folder later on, it's just to help out the CC and the team for the meantime.

    So close now! I wonder how much better PPD will be from the new client, and if the new projects (I assume there has to be new projects to take advantage of the new core) will be better on the heat :D

    Who is going to try it out?! ->

    I just started my GTX 470 using the vista console version on a Windows 7 64-bit system.

    As I write this the client has completed 17% on a project 10627. HFM shows a TPF of 00:00:49, 0 PPD, 0 Credit, Unknown Client Type and an Unknown Core. It does show a Core Version of 2.09.

    Update: I just noticed I was running at 104C @ 50% fan. I upped the fan to 100% and now have 73C. Unfortunately the sun is going down so the ambient temp is not as high as it will be tomorrow.

    I will try it in a few minutes as soon as one my WUs finishes.

    EDIT: I'm assuming no more -forcegpu nvidia_g80

    Temps are the only thing keeping me from ditching my 275s and moving to a 4x0 card right now. 73C is good @100% though, please update us with how it does in the heat of the day- thanks!

    Nasty, I never understood what that flag was for :laugh: All my Nvidia clients work fine without them. Am I missing something? :eek:

    Switched my 2 GTX260's along with the Beta 257.17 drivers, temps are not so bad (low 60's)

    No info on HFM.net though as far as points:ohwell:

    Here's an idea:
    If you run your HD5770 every other night, I'll run my GTX260 every other night. It should pump out easily 2x the PPD of the HD5770 (if not more), so in the end we'd be getting far better PPD overall

    Once again, I learn something. I think I started using the -forcegpu flag when I was having stability issues with some of the new work units when they came out (548's, etc.)

    I'm running the GPU3 client on one of my 250's. It's working on a 450 WU right now and doesn't seem to be any different than the GPU2 client. At least the guys with 4xx Nvidia cards can finally fold. I'm very interested to see what their PPD is on those cards.

    It would be very interesting if Fitseries can get his 4x480's PC folding. :cool:

    Also, I'm going to wait for the ATI GPU client to come out before upgrading any cards. Hopefully they will have similar output to the equivalent Nvidia cards, and I can enjoy more output with less heat and electricity. (My apt was built in the 60's and the living room has only a 15 AMP breaker. I've blown it once already. :banghead: )

    When the reviews came out on the GTX 400 series cards, they said that Folding@Home and CUDA apps are really where the cards show their potential.

    I figure its either wait for a die shrink for better heat, or wait for the ATI client to be released like Nasty mentioned. Unfortunately, if you see how ATI and folding has gone in the past, GPU3 for ATI is probably still a long way away :( I always said though, if they could get to the performance of Nvidia and have cheaper, cooler solutions, I would switch to ATI as soon as I could get a card from Darwin :D

    well i can tell you one thing...

    480s fold faster than anything i've ever seen.

    just need to get SMP running now on 16 threads and i bet i have a sick ass PPD machine.

    :D

    That should be a killer folding PC. 20 million points, here we come! :toast:

    I'm seriously jealous of all you GTX400 cards...according to what I posted from OCN, they easily get 2x the PPD of my GTX260 when OCed. And with a beta client!

    FYI Guys. Get the latest 0.5 HFM.net client. It shows me all the info on the GPU3 client.

    BTW: Nice TPF on the 470 msgclb.
