    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Well run it for a few weeks and see what the average is on it. If that thing can maintain 3k+ freedc points per day I will sell all my rigs and buy them. Because if a tri core running at 2.1 ghz can keep up with a 6 core running at 3.2 I will :respect::respect::respect:

    I think you have some inflated totals due to the betas that ran. Without the betas what are you getting as ppd? Either way I still think that is a respectable chip and gets decent numbers for being a tri core with low clock speeds.

    It was the GPU that made it fly. :p

    Don't really know without GPU. Probably somewhere around 1400-1500 PPD. :laugh:

    Also, it's running at 2,4.


    (Would play with proper overclocking, if I weren't running on the VGA output. :cry:)

    Actually I think you may be surprised. @ 2.4 I say pretty close if not a tad over 2k ppd.

    Perhaps. Time will tell. :)

    And to think I practically bought it blindly. :p

    Some more GPU betas are coming in today- just caught one going through my task list :)

    Less than 2.5 minute each on the 7850 in my main rig! :pimp:

    Thanks for posting--I've caught some on the GTX460s.

    It's amazing they take less than 2.5 minutes on your card...they take at least twice that on the 460s....still great PPD though :)

    All but one errored out on me last time and they kept going into a loop with one core so I shut down beta wu for now.

    Are they linux rigs? I was hitting errors on my 1045T/HD 6850/Win7x64 rig until I realized I never bothered to install the Catalyst driver :banghead:

    I installed 11.12 (it was the only one I had in the rig's downloads folder) and I just sailed thru one w/o errors in under 4 minutes :)

    No it's a win 7 rig with 12.4 cat's installed. But it was right around the time the fan was acting like ass. I will reenable them and see what happens.

    Edit: Damn that was fast, got one.

    Edit again: It's at the same 99.415% and stuck there again. It will stay there for about 5 mins and then start the same wu over again and repeat the process over and over again. I have 4 more waiting. If it restarts I will just abort them all. Don't need to waste the cpu cycles on a wu that will never complete.

    is the memory clocked? independent shader clock? with my old nvidia cards i would sometimes have issues with a high mem clock or a core clock was too high so i would drop it 50mhz and clock the shaders 200.

    Mine get exactly that far and there is about a 60 second wait before it uploads. Does it on both rigs..... I'm fairly certain it's a wu issue.

    I did a manual update a couple of times when it went longer and the wu was ready to report after the update [/dunno]

    The gpu is at stock clocks. It is a XFX hd 5770. I think it time for me to upgrade the gpu's in atleast 2 rigs.

    The first and last tick seems to not be able to run on GPU, for some reason.


    That makes my desktop almost as fast as my laptop on GPU units, though it can't be seen in the results status page.

    I have 1 Hd 5770 and 2x 4870's in cf that I am thinking of replacing in the crunchers. Might also finally part ways with the 5970 I have on my shelf.

    well my GFs desktop has an empty slot i have 2 empty slots and can utilize 1 (sound card) and I know my mom has a desktop over at her place she leaves on 24/7 (running WCG right now) that has a pci-e slot open because it runs onboard.

    me and my GF wont care I play with card configs all the time. On her rig ill just have one of them fold and she can game with the other so no slow downs. my mom wouldnt even notice she plays flash games and even under 100% load would probably seem like its running faster.

    ATI cards unfortunately make terrible folding cards. You'd be better off with a bunch of $30 8800GTs or a $90 GTX460 :)

    maybe but it will be cheaper to buy them off of mad and I cant dedicate whole rigs to crunching as of yet so they will do fine as secondary cards. im easing my way back into the game ill worry about standings when im looking for GX2s again.

    EDIT: sorry let me refrase I know they suck at folding, but they do fold.

    GX2s no longer make the best choice for PPD/$ or PPD/W, again, I'd suggest GTX460s. They don't take a ton of power, and will do 15-16k PPD on most WUs (although do a rather miserable 11k on the 5187pt WUs).

    Looks like tonights run is finished- the 7850 is done and the 6850 is on its last wu.

    Ended up with 6 pages of them in total :toast:
