It's been so long since he folded, he may have forgotten the name I joke, I joke...
I was looking at http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/team_summary.php?s=&t=50711 and didn't see any name that let my mind to Ion, hence the question
We all had some off weeks, hint, hint
Edit: after my 8-9 (some were re-started, some got some partial points) errors on my SMP I got another of the good ones on the GPU (1:36-1:37/frame).
I haven't been folding ever since the WCG GPU WUs came out--but I'll bring some of my nV cards back to FAH soon enough.
Ouch! Trust me, it was killin' me while I was not folding, but I'd like to think I'm making up for lost time now.
I think he folded under IFX?
Yes I know that it was IFX just hinting so he could get his 460 back on track and yes you are making up for lost time. My own track record is not that great but when BOINC for once offers a good deal you have to try it out. I just found out that NVida might be better off for folding in these days. A bit like a lottery - did I pick up a 8057?
Edit: Yes I did. Back to back 8057s sweet.
In the last 36 hrs, I have had all 8057 wu's except for 4(which were 8xxx wu's). Let's hope the string continues.
PS. I also picked up my 1st 8102 on the Opty-6176 rig last night. Currently pulling 650K ppd and it should have dumped already(2pm EST for 400K).
Lucky you. Since running SMP under FaControl has brought me nothing but errors (OK got two-three in 48 hours) I reverted to the good old fashion way. At least I didn't pick up a 78xx so I should be good. I added a GTS 450. Anyone ever tried to get a 8057 on one of these GPUs? Anyway my workshop was getting cold (my 4.1 GHz i970 was below 45 C on air cooling) so even with only 10K PPD it prevents rust stains on my poor quality tools
Edit: Three in a row
I'm at around one 8057 wu for two any other ones. Not once did the two fold one simultanously though.
If I understand you right then you never had two 8057 at the same time. Is your GPUs both in the same rig? I would hate if my faster card (rig 1) not get one if my slow card (rig 2) is working on one already. But again if a GTS 450 could get one then I just improve my chances to download them.
I looked at prices for new a 460. Yikes. Anyway I bought 3 GPUs the past three weeks so my quota is full.
I'm pretty sure any gtx 460 will run 750 core without any other tweaks. The worst gf104 core i came across, out of ten tested cores, reached 800 before needing any more juice. They just beg to run faster, more like stock gtx 560 clocks.
And from experience, ppd scale almost linearly with clocks: from 725 to 910 mhz core means 25.5% faster. PPD came from 12k up to 15k (assuming 2387 or 5757 wu), 25% more points. The damned 5187 showed a more drastic increase: 8k to a little more than 11k, so a 38% ish addition.
If you can keep them cool, like below 70c, they will clock like there's no tomorrow.
My clocks were done under water, so don't expect more than 850-875 on air, but i like to see ocing while folding like turning a 5$ bill into a 10$ one!
Well i'm stuck with only one gtx 460 2win, so two 460. It's twin sister is gone to RMA.
My GTX460s both do just under 850MHz core on stock cooling folding stable
That's more like it!
My 910 needed max safe volts, so 1,087v. All three gtx 460 cyclone i had watercooled ran those clocks, humming at 45-50c...
I tried unlocking the voltage to 1,212v, as temps were not a problem, and it took 1,2 to get to 930. WAY past the point of diminishing returns, i concluded.
Did you buy AMD cards for WCG?
Yes 2 x 7770 and one 7950 plus the one 7770 (the money for it) I gave as a price for the TPU competition. I came one week late to the party. I was sitting in Zambia and saw people flying past me so I HAD to do something to make up
Wow. My production today is over 100k, using just gpu's and a i7 970. Those 8057 wu are really showing!
Woot! That's what I was hoping to see. Congrats Man!
I've been PM'ing the power folders of TPU to make sure they get on this bandwagon.
Would anyone be interested in this?
I think someone wants 7 digits in their 24 hour average.
That could be any member of this team!
4 straight 8057! PPD holding steady at 80k on each of them and yes i did the falcore_15. Its not 100k but Im happy. The other 470 hasnt gotten an 8057 yet. My output is up so Im good
They have to come out with other benchmark WU's if they are truly going after equal credit for equal work.
Nice -bigadv dump Feanor! We are at 2.2 million with another update to go.
Had a surprise yesterday: i forgot a bid i put on a supermicro X8DTH-6F motherboard on ebay. Won the motherboard yesterday for 85$. Got two l5520 for 80$ each so around 300$ for a 8c/16t setup. I now hope it can do -bigadv, but that'll be close i think... Must be able to do better than 34 min tpf on 8101!
