Just about to pick up that 9600GSO, I just started folding again on my other one just like it.

News About Folding with X2 Radeon Cards

When the core 1.17 came out I tried folding dual gpu but was VERY UNSTABLE.

Now with the 1.18 I'm completing almost 24 hours folding with my 3870X2 WITHOUT A SINGLE PROBLEM!!!

THAT'S FANTASTIC!!!!

PLEASE ALL 4870X2/3870X2 OWNERS:

PUT THE TWINS TO SWEAT!!! HEHE...

How about the HD 2600XT? How much PPD would I get out of that? I saw one for sale £55 yesterday, that seemed quite expensive to me. and the 3850 AGP is selling for around that price on ebay.
Anyone?

I have a 8400GS not doing anything.. Anyone think I can hook that up along with my 4850 and only have the 8400 fold?

It won't work in Vista because Vista won't allow nVidia and ATi driver to run at the same time.

Awesome, thanks guys! 3850 seems like the way to go. Now all I need is to buy one... and probably a new PSU. And Windows XP. And hope it works.

Hello Sir. atnevon!

You need to config -GPU 0 and -GPU 1. Where Zero is your primary PCI-e slot.

For multi GPU folding, just follow the link:

http://folding.stanford.edu/English/WinGPUGuide#ntoc4

Is not complicated at ALL. Basically you'll need to create a new folder and config 2 shortcuts - for GPU 0 and GPU 1.

Good luck :rolleyes:
Well, I still can't get this guide to work. I don't get it. I know there is a bunch of folder copying, and renaming, but when I try it, i get a bunch of errors, and nothing seems to work.

Any nutshell methods out there?

I'm still looking for ideas why my 9600GSO (overclocked shaders...pretty high) still only tops off at around 3000...I know it can do so much better. I have the right drivers installed for both cards (8800GT/9600GSO) and the 9600GSO runs in the secondary pci express x16 slot, but only runs at x8 (I believe...not sure if that even matters).

Are there any recommendations or tests I can do to pump this card up to 5k at least? I'm really disappointed with it's performance thus far.

We have several teamates that are having issues setting up the dual GPU clients and optimizing their current set-ups. I am going to make calls to these members to give a verbal walk through on set ups and tweaks. I can do this weeknites between 7 to 11pm EST. Unfortunately, I can only do this for members in the U.S. & Canada. If you would like assistance, PM your phone number to me and the timeframe to call and I will gladly assist. With a little help, we should be pushing 200K+ PPD very soon.

P.S. I have another 10.5K coming online by Thursday.:rockout:

Well got my PS3 finally folding for TPU, going to do it mostly nights and while I am working as long as I remember. Don't think that my eeePC will be able to contribute any to the cause though.
