Just joined the team. Folding @ 1900PPD with GPU and 400 with CPU client
Very nice. Welcome to the team
Which version to download to run GPU Client for HD3870 ?
The link to it is in the first post of this thread....http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=57781
Anyone Got a Q folding ?
I was thinking about starting this when I get my new system tweaked. It will be a Q6600 and dual HD3870x2's.
can you use HD3870X2's ?
at just 3.2GHz I should get around 2600-2800PPD maybe more cuz it should do at last 2 smps a day or lil over 24hrs
but im still messing around with it but I should be back and running
folding with my quad. SMP runs fairly quick - each step is about 8-9 min. She'll finish a WU in about 1-1.5 days with all 4 cores at 100%.
I've also run both 1950 PROs with a seperate GPU console each, but I can't get two to work now without a second monitor. Besides, each GPU console also require part of a CPU core
The new GPU client i'm happy I can use it on my 3850, but it's quite cpu limited with my P4 @3.7 I get like 700ppd while others with a 3850 are getting twice as many points when a fast Intel Core cpu is used.
The following is from a thread at the F@H forum-
Number from HD3870.
Q6600 @ 2.4 GHz (266 * 9), GPU @ 780 MHz : 1310 PPD
Q6600 @ 3.4 GHz (485 * 7), GPU @ 780 MHz : 1860 PPD
Q6600 @ 3.4 GHz (485 * 7), GPU @ 850 MHz : 1860 PPD
More numbers with the 2900XT ...
Dual Opteron 2212 @ 2.7 GHz : 1350 PPD (with GPU @ 739 and 847 MHz)
Q6600 @ 3.4 GHz (485 * 7), GPU @ 739 and 847 MHz : 1860 PPD
Q6600 @ 3.8 GHz (475 * 8), GPU @ 739 MHz : 1860 PPD
Q6600 @ 3.8 GHz (475 * 8), GPU @ 847 MHz : 2100 PPD
Q6600 @ 3.8 GHz (475 * 8), GPU @ 860 MHz : 2100 PPD
how do you get it to work?
i installed the cpu client but it wont run as 1 instance of folding@home is already running,
IDK, the new 8.4's were supposed to allow 300 series GPUs. When I get the CPU OC stable I'll give this a shot...
what oc you looking at getting ?
Trying to get anything ATM. 3.0, 3.2 would be OK, but 3.6 is my ideal. I don't need to push it to 3.8-4.0 for everyday stuff.
yeah im running OCCT right now for 3.6GHz 2hr run its been going to 30mins so far but temps seem high, hottest core 69C coretemps/everst read and real temp 59c, at 1.3v
Lol I really need a new cpu/mobo which I will get soon. Oc'ing from 3.7 to 3.8 on P4 only 6 seconds faster per wu step (each 1%) of work. Not even worth going from 1.55 to 1.675 Vcore for the WU to be done 10 minutes faster only. Oh well guess my 3850 will only fold as fast as my old x1950xt due to cpu limitation.
Our team has really gone up in the ranks in the last year and i'm very proud of all our teams efforts! Nice work!
i cannot run both GPU & CPU client at the same time, one of it will be unable to fetch work... so, for now i just run the GPU client coz its seems to be faster... my HD3870 complete a WU within 2.5 hours, it is fast or slow??
by da way DOM, how do you get the F@H stats at ur sig?
Thats kinda slow, as my Hd3870 is doing WU's in just over an hour!
my internet connection quite slow, and i always downloads stuff at the same time... does this affect the WU work time??
Im not really sure on that! great question!
On behalf of Techpowerup I would like to thank all of our members that contribute to the folding at home project. You have brought the team very far and being one of the top 250 teams is within sight. Not only that, but you are selflessly contributing to a project that may one day change all of our lives. Keep up the good work.
To get your stats paste this into your browser,only replace USER NAME with your own name that you fold under and TEAM NUMBER with 50711(TPU's team number).

You can then save the image and add it to your sig
Hope to get my 3870 today and will put it to the test as soon as it arrives.Will be miles better than my X1950pro
No, it shouldn't affect the WU time. It will only affect how long it takes to download WUs and upload results.
based on my log file, it doesnt take so much time to download n upload the results...
i think maybe coz im running my HD3870 at the second slot, which run at x8 only or maybe even the driver... erm, i will try other options, changing drivers or even try the card on the first slot
Started Folding on my Q6600 again, don't know if I will do it for long or not. I'll have to see how hot it makes my room and how much power it uses.
umm, ok, i know i shud have, but ive never folded (eeeek)
i downloaded the graphical client, and forwarded port 8080, however it still states it cannot connect/get work instructions, even tried the use internet explorer setting too.
any ideas? thats tcp/udp port 8080 forwarded to my lan address
