YHPM Cap, I also received notice from HP to cut my clients to 20GB.
I got it too. We can make 10 small instances (2 GB RAM / 60 GB HD) and run WCG, thats it. Originally it was 200 GB RAM.
I'm still looking for a way to increase output from my i7. Is it still worth it to use linux? Not sure if it's worth it for smp folding or not.
So is it even worth bothering with anymore? I have not received my invite yet.
watching with interest, ive not got an Actual invite yet but ive started coms with them and im hopefull its on the way.
As it is now you can either get 10 times 2 cores or 2 times 4 cores. That might change back to the original 2 times 8 plus 4 but for now I would say folding for new users on cloud is dead.
NEW BETA V7.1.48 released today February 16.
Stopping process mid stream and updating caused WU failure. (not so with past beta updates)
Did a complete uninstall and reinstall. (deleted all data)
Seems to be working OK now.
I suggest everyone to check if their fermi client are using the -advmethods flag, as i've started getting p803x wu's, and I've measured a 25,8% increase in ppd (on 3 gtx 460 @ 910 core clock) when compared to p762x wu. Be sure to get these!
I am considering buying a Gigabyte GTX 460 version 2 (GIGABYTE GV-N460OC-1GI V3 GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) ...) to use for 24/7 folding. It's apparently a card to get rid of old 192bit/24ROP GF104 chips, and it has 1GB if mixed density GDDR5 like the 550 Ti does and 336 shaders. I will likely be moving my cards around again so that my current GTX 550 Ti folding card and this card are paired up on my Phenom II X4 rig, and the AMD cards will be split up (5770 replaces the 550 Ti in my Pentium Dual Core rig, 6670 moves into 2nd PCIe slot in my home rig with a 6950).
Anyone know much about these cards (how well they fold, if they are durable and won't blow up in a few months, etc.)? I don't care about noise or power consumption since I have 3 towers at work stacked on top of each other folding/crunching away on the cheap electricity, but as long as one will fold well and stay cool (and even better if they OC) I will be happy. Will this 460v2 fold faster than my 550 Ti or should I just get another 550 Ti if it's more efficient?
^^ Did you see this? http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?p=2550036#post2550036
I'd recommend that card over the V3 GTX 460.
Thank you very much, I just sent him a PM and maybe I'll end up saving a lot of money and getting the same performance with his card.
Holy smokes, Batman!
GTX460 768MB @ 750MHZ P680x-10,000 PPD. P8xxx-13,400 PPD (according to the V7 client)
GTX460 1GB @ 780MHz P680x-10,500 PPD. P8xxx-14,180 PPD (according to the V7 client)
Looking forward to hearing what the GTX560Ti's are doing with these.
Crap, i'm at work now:shadedshu. Will check when I get home. This is not limited to V7 client, is it?
edit: yepper's, I got em. Thanks pande group. This almost makes up for the -bigadv debacle.
GTX460's 768mb @ 850/1700/1800 @ 1.0v
P.S. Texbill, crank up the GTS450 I sold you!!!!
Client-type advanced in Client V7
advmethods for all others, as far as I know.
I'm using gpu tracker and got them, so don't worry Buck.
I need a deal on a 650 or 750w 80+ psu to run a folder. My current 2nd folding box has too weak of a psu, and I need to sell it in a 2nd configuration for some extra funds. It'll be up to a month until I have the funds, but I'll pay full up front. Must be a single rail psu. I'm desperate for psus, and will pay!
Try upping the memory a little on the 460's.
The three i got stable at 2150 all yielded an increase between 400-500 ppd. Not much by any means, but i'm open to any ppd increase
If anyone in the next month has a 750- 850w 80+ psu for sale, please msg me. I'm dead serious, I can't increase my farm until then....
I have a Corsair TX850, TX750, and TX650 that I will be listing on my thread shortly, let me know which one you like.
Don't need modulars, all those look good to me! I just for the first time fired up a 3rd folding card on the same mobo.... yummy! My p6t is folding a xeon w3570+2xgtx260s+1 9800gtx, first time ever for me! Yes, I need another psu please!
Edit: actually, a friend of mine needs a good psu as well. In one month I can cough up enough for 2 psus in the range I'm looking for. Guaranteed sale.
I currently have an 8033 on my GTX 550 Ti 950MHz and the estimated PPD appears to be 10,100. I think the usual PPD was around 9000 for the card, but honestly I am not sure.
The advanced ATI core (0x16) made a similar increase for my 6950/6670/5770 cards as well, so it looks like the advanced flag is a must have for any Evergreen(+) and Fermi owners.
My 460s produced a little over 12000 with the 5187 points wu. Now with the new 3843 points wu, they are over 16000 ppd, wich means my first math wasn't right: it is not 26% increase, it is 33%!
you guys just using the advanced flag on amd cards ?, any other tips you can pass or flags?
