I don't know why you wouldn't. Mine are maxed out and I don't even have any OC going.
Yeah it's FAH. I bought my 5850 to game, and I bought the 5870 with the idea that I'd run FAH and crossfire, and if it was more trouble than it was worth for gaming, I'd just run FAH on the 50 and game on the 70. FAH runs 100% on GPU2 at all times whether I'm gaming or not, I pause the GPU1 and SMP cores when I'm gaming. Essentially I'm gaming with a 5870 and a Tri-core while a 5850 and single core runs FAH. (except for BFBC2 where it seems I need all the CPU I can get, so I pause it all.) I'm running the newest revision of the V7 beta, they are starting to roll out the new OpenCL cores to people using ATi hardware and the V7 client, with BIGADV flags soon. I haven't heard much more about it. We'll see I guess
What kind of PPD per core on that 4870x2, on what version of the client, were you getting on ATi? You said you hit 100K using 4870x2 you didn't say what per day...
Yup, I know they're in a different INI, I just wasn't sure if you were aware of them or not. The difference between the EM configurator's reset to defaults and your backup, is that the EM keeps both the defaults and a backup seperately, so you can make a backup of your current settings before you make a change to compare the differences, and still have the ability to reset to default OR the backup even if the backup you made isn't a backup of default settings.
Good to know you plan to keep working on it. I think the EM configurator has pretty much stagnated... It can be a lot of fun, too. I miss coding. Not that I ever really did much, two high-school VB classes... and they changed the curriculum between CS20 and CS30 so the first half of CS30 I just re-handed in all the assignments I had from CS20
O RLY? hrm. Maybe I've still got that driver bug I thought I squashed. What FPS you getting?
Just played a round, did great, but it gets old having your entire team under 1.0, I think I capped every flag that round, sadly we barely lost.
yea i know the feelin kurgan seems every server im on is the same way, my team always sucks its why there was a spot open lol
The very lowest I drop to is about 50 fps anymore.
We need to get a bunch of TPU folks on tonight. Anyone down? Good time to do it?
Wish I could, I got to get some sleep before work :/
not sure what i got PPD wise it was over 2 years ago
Around 8 CST?
Yeah sounds about right. Makes me feel better, I guess BFBC2 just isn't stressful enough on the GPU for CFX to do anything. I'm about that (~48 and up) unless I'm messing about with PlayClaw. It'll drop me to 30 flat if I'm recording. I might actually buy it when v3 comes out, as far as I know it's the only program that can overlay for TS/Ventrilo without eventually getting PB kicked. The vid recording works O.K. but I really need Raid 0 for it, my Raid 5 box is very close but just doesn't quite keep up. </random babbling>
Any time, man. You have me on steam, so give me a shout whenever you want to start. We're not on each others lists in-game though, so it might be interesting trying to get together. Anybody here can feel free to add me if they want another TPUer to play with. Name's same as here.
Fair enough. I'm getting about 8.3k-8.5k PPD per card on my 58XX cards. Any idea how that stacks up against a comparable NV card?
i think an 8800gt will do close to 5000 ppd
GTS 450 will do 8000 PPD
GTX 460 768mb will do 11000 PPD
on nvidia workloads with F@H the 450s overclocked can hit over 12k -15k PPD
now that i think about it my old 4870x2 got around 1400 PPD per GPU so 2800PPD on a 4870x2 back in the day
but yea Nvidia dominates Folding @ Home
AMD / ATI dominates with BitCoins.
Yeah, I figured as much. I guess I'll see how it does whenever the OCL based cores come out.
I'll also see how far I can clock these bad boys once I get them under water. Waiting on a diagnostic card for the lappy that ASUS failed to put a GPU fan in. HRM... wonder why there's no video output
I still remember how this game works.
Guys, is there any solution for huge frame drops? Only when there's explosion or smoke. I normally have like 80FPS in average, but then, when something explodes or smoke appears, I got lees then 20,10, and it's unplayable for some time, and that of course means I get killed...
Btw, here are few of my games http://imgur.com/a/8Nnb9
Get a new card would help a lot. A 5770 would work great with your spec's.
80FPS seems awfully high for a 4670, what settings are you running?
I finally found a happy medium between full hardcore and normal. I need my hud and such but I want the damage increase. So the silver hardcore is perfect to me :3
Ok I have overshot it little, 60FPS in average, but 80 isn't problem (and I'm not looking at ground)
Seems about right for those settings, smoke is an FPS killer though, though with DX9 and that low of a res, I'm surprised it would kill your FPS that badly.
With your system configuration, the GPU cannot keep up with the CPU's Havok physics calculations. A more powerful card should help rendering not fall behind so Crazyeyesreaper is right.
blue> pickup a cheap evga Bstock GTX 460 and be done with it. hell my 460SE with the less cuda cores even ran this game on high setting no haob
Yep, I got the same card for $95 and run everything on high at 1366x768 aka 1080i and it hauls butt. I am extremely happy with the purchase. I had driver conflicts at first because of the prior AMD cards, but after a sweep all was good. I have it overclocked and getting about 120 gb of bandwidth and not a hiccup at all.
My GPU upgrade to from 5850 to 6850 crossfire definitely helped min fps issues like with smoke but the main solution for such was going from dual to quad cpu (same clock speed).
Well BFBC2 clubhouse Eastcoasters stay safe this weekend.
I hope Irene isn't as big a bitch as Gloria was.
