    Got two of the HD7770s going!

    I'm a bit disappointed about the PPD--any idea what I should be getting?

    That's about all I got with mine- for an 85w card it's not terrible.... not a 7970 :p but still not terrible.

    Mine barely got warm at full load, maybe 50-55C

    Hmm, mine's at 80C for the top card and about 60C on the lower one.

    Either way, it's still nearly 3x the PPD of a GTX260 for less power draw....

    What are the chances that my HD4000 lappytop could do ANY folding?

    It appears that the answer is: not yet.

    Thought I would ask. I would love to fold w/ you all, since a good number of you all helped out with the BD Challenge, crunching.

    Once I get a place for my Desktops, again, may be a while, I plan on doing some Folding. I wish I could help out now but, all I have is this laptop.

    You could mayhaps fold on the CPU, decreasing your output for WCG.

    Can somebody point me in that direction? I would be ok using one of my cores to fold, if possible.

    Realistically, just one core is going to do very, very little, particularly with the bonus system FAH uses and the intermittent internet connection you have. I'd just keep crunching :toast:

    I realized that I should be able to use a molex->6pin adapter to put the third HD7770 in the 3930k system, so I'm going to try that some times this week.

    I had a 7970 that kept (4 times on a different 8900) stopping at 2 seconds left. I have now replaced it with a 7770 @1045 Mhz. It will be better since every thing is better then 0 ppd. I will report back tomorrow. In any case it is much more energy efficient then the 8800/260 that we started out with some years back.

    Edit: It looks like 17K ppd. I think that I will try a 7950 next.

    Yes, I'm getting pretty much exactly 17k PPD per. Much better PPD/W than the G92 cards I have :toast:
    Not nearly the PPD output of the HD7950, but with a third HD7770 that should be enough for a consistent 150k PPD from me :)

    Update on my 17k PPD. It looks like it will end at around 22k. I will still replace it with a 7950 and when I'm at it replace my RAM. I noticed that I'm running dual channels with my three sticks :p

    Edit: Note to my self - use your glasses when you fit RAM sticks. Back to triple channels.
    It ended up having a 11:16 TPF = 22.2k PPD. 7950 is now running at stock 900 MHz.

    Edit 2: 6:33 TPF for the 7950 on a 8900. The strange thing is that the maximum GPU load is 80%. My other AMDs does 98-99%. Solved - I forgot to give it a thread. Combined with a slight OC (100 MHz) the TPF dropped below 5:00. Hmm not bad.

    Are you saying that I cannot run a job offline, like BOINC does?

    Well, aside from doing nothing, except severely slowing down and halve my BOINC WU's, for the past 2 1/2 hours may have proved ION's point. I am not really helping either project by attempting to fold on this laptop.

    Folding will be something I WILL do, just unable to at this time. So, until then, Thanks and take care!! :ohwell:

    I can see that. :) Had one yesterday as well. I tried to push it a bit today and instal two 7970s in the same rig. Result was that I lost a 8900 at 99% and 1 hour of folding time one two GPUs. I can't add a new GPU in FAHControl. I guess that I didn't do it right. Tomorrow is another day.

    I have had only core17 WUs with a base credit of 6000. So that means they are units too big for overnight crunching because they are taking a lot of time to complete and barely make the deadline. Making the deadline with some room to play with means making sure that everything stutters while I use the PC during the day.

    A 7970 will do an Core 17 8900 in under 7 hrs... enough for nearly 29k with the bonus :toast:

    Card barely notices the extra load, no stuttering whatsoever :pimp:

    I got a HD 6670 DDR3, roughly taking about 12-96 hours depending on the WU size. I could trying to avoid them by preferring a disease not related to 8900. I believe that those I got for Alzheimer's were very do-able so I guess I will focus thereon.

    You are the most dedicated folder BBB, you never miss a post and reply when needed. BTW I can add a GPU (the DOT you pointed at) but the cold weather left so I will pass for a day or two.

    Edit: Yes I see it as well, 17 times 6000 (aka WU 8900 worth from 15 to 230k PPD depending of GPU). Seems like a 7950 at stock.
