Have a safe trip Ed and congrats again on the Marriage.
I just celebrated my 1 year with my wife, enjoy every bit of it.
I am getting ~32 points on all.
6950 is getting WU to 99,415% in ~3 min
6670 ----- in~6 min
6570 ----- in~8min
Cool so the 6670 and 6570 are doing good on these? There are a good low cost option for gpu wu's.
Yeah, pretty good for it's price. I'm planning to fill all empty PCI-E slots with these cheap cards.
Should they not to be C-Fired, right?
WCG Server Maintenance - Friday Oct 12 starting at 15:00 UTC
The work will be done over a 12 hour period.
If you are using more than 1 GPU add this to your cc_config.xml under options:
Well I enabled both GPU's...
Averaging about 3:51 minutes
It's intelligent enough to know to not try and run calculations using crossfire even if it is enabled.
Congratulations! I hope you have an amazing time and I wish you success in your marriage!
Those are really very solid times given the cards you have. The HD6950 is performing like a GTX470; the HD6670 is performingl ike a GTX460, and the HD6570 is probably like a GTX550Ti.
Given these results, I think I'll snag a GTX470 for the i7-920 system
Ok maybe its the language barrier but I am not getting this post. Am I not suppose to crunch the 6950's in Xfire?
I'd disable CrossFire, I have SLI disabled on my GTX460s and it's working well
What does Crossfire do to the crunching?
I'm honestly not sure, this GPU application is brand new and I haven't had an ATI GPU in a while now
two gpus in CF would yield less crunching performance than one single gpu would, mainly because one GPU would fail to step up from idle clocks. In a later Catalyst driver release, that problem was solved, and the performance was slightly better than a single GPU. i use 12.9 beta and i suffer from the idle problem so i'm not using the crossfire
I have mine cfed with no problems averaging speeds equal to a 6870 non cfed. Mine are 6850's. So I see no penalty with them being cfed. And both cards are doing the packets the same and at the same time.
what version of catalyst are you using ? i'm using the beta 12,9 and after 2-3 hours my second gpu idling
I am using 12.8's. I had the 12.9's running but gpuz reported me as running 12.3. Crap like that just bothers me for some reason so I went to the 12.8's. My second gpu was shut off until I started running these gpu work units now it is running like a big dog.
I just checked mine and both GPU's are at 98% load 63 deg and WCG shows two projects going at the same time so I am guessing both are working hard. I am using 12.9 beta
cool brandon. You got both to work at the same time.
thanks i reinstall 12,8 and crossfire work great under 1:50 to complete(99.415%) a project on both card
I just checked at its back to going up and down. I noticed that once a project is finished it takes about a minute or so to upload and the card is unused at this time.
Something non-GPU related....
My 1045T seems to be only showing/running 5 cores not 6??? I confirmed this in cpuz and in Windows Task Manager.
Tried a restart but no changes. Will do a BIOS reset when I get home tonight to see if that corrects it.
Anybody else have a cpu that lost a core?
I'm thinking it's a defective cpu if I can't get the core to come back (I bought the chip full retail so it should still be under warranty)
Goto start then run. Type msconfig then press enter.
Goto the boot tab then advanced to check to see if somehow number of processors got changed to 5
im soo glad these GPU units run quick My 6870 has upped my credit avg from 650 to almost 1100
