Yup, the ~11% I'm doing currently is at least twice what I was doing before
Prepare to share the pie with me the next couple of days. I just got my GTX 680 and a GTS 450 crunching.
Great to have the extra power(every little bit helps), but I doubt it's enough to bring you up to the top ten. That 680 may be a great gaming card, but it ain't sh-t in GPGPU.:shadedshu
You might be right. It takes 4 minutes per WU (2200 GFLOPS). The 450 does it in 11 minutes and my 525M uses around 20 but sinces the 680 work with a intel hex it should be good for 15 K so 28 K in all. On the pie limit. I better change my 210 to something better.
Honestly, since you are a cruncher/folder, I would suggest looking into selling the GTX680 and getting a HD7970. All I have crunching is the two rigs in my system specs. I was normally scored in 13th-14th place with just my i7 2600k and i7 860 cpus crunching. When the ATI wu's appeared, I jumped straight into PIE, all because of my single 7970. You get a 7970, and you'll definently get PIE every single day. Oh and about replacing the 210, the $125 HD7770 cards outscores even the GTX580. Don't know how the 680 actually performs, but iirc, the 580 beats the 680 in crunching/folding by alot.
MSI R7770-PMD1GD5 Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 1...
A little chart put together by someone on WCG forums showing some of the top cards and how they perform compared to eachother.
We're putting out some great ppd today
Kiex and MW have knocked me off of the Cherry pie this am and I'm going to try my best to get it back by tonight
But you know what? It would be awesome for our Team if I can only reach the Blueberry or the Lemon with my normal output. You guys rock!!! -
DAYUM, atleast I'm still getting PIE, by about 700 points over Novice1. Guess I can't do any gaming today if I want to keep PIE.
Unforunately it's gonna be short-lived for me.. a lot of that is already getting boxed up Shame because I recon I could have reached into the 90K. Cherry is gonna be between you and MW for now.
If you still have the 3x 7770's running on the SR-2 for the day you may still reach that
Definitely going to need to look into picking up a pair of 7770's or another 7870
Thank you for the advice and the numbers. I will however not sell my 680. I got it for folding, never used it for playing. I might get a red card to replace my 210 but I can see my old 260 might work as well. My 250 GTS don't.
Edit: 210 is out and 260 is in. About 6 min/WU.
Mi GTX275 is performing well, considering it was on a shelf last week. Takes about 5-6 mins per WU.
Uhh, I'm sorry, but Blueberry and Lemon are my territory. We'll have to fight!
But it would be cool to see you and MW fighting for Cherry
How many GPUs do you having going at this point?
2(GTX460 & GTX275). Getting ready to try a GTX260(216 core) and see if it will play nice with the GTX275.
Not for long Buddy
That's an impressive collection you're building up!
We'll see about that--I should have my i7-920 back from RMA before too long, and when I sell this AMD X2 and C2D I'm buying a new GPU--perhaps a HD7850
I have a few things up my sleeve also.
Spoke with my "client" and delivery is rescheduled for next week. So guess I'll join in on the race for Cherry for a few more days.
The SR-2/7770 rig is staying with me permanently. Today is first day running it GPU only, be interesting to see what PPD it does for 260W
You guys really make me want to pull some of my Fermis off of F@H, but I want to keep doing both projects so I'm probably going to stay where I'm at.
I would say pretty darn good ppd... considering it's already pulled 38k points today
FreeDC just posted the latest update.
Glad to have you a bit longer!
The GTX460s really don't do all that well on WCG, so I think your current solution is working well.
Maybe you just need another Radeon or two
Time for Pie!....
Are you in our Top 20?
Or Almost There?
Spoiler: Positions 21 thru 30 Today
Horsepower Today ('nuff said)!!!
Congrats to All of our Crunchers!!! -
25 people above 10k, and Norton has been knocked to #3
Sweet Mopar Nice job guys.
Used up my daily quota of thanks. But it's such an awesome sight! Been a while since I had cherry pie.
I think the horsepower picture really sums up how much output the team is giving.
Blueberry is still mighty tasty Pie.
Congrats to Kiex and Mindweaver for getting Cherry and Lime today!
