I started the SMP client today on my Q6600 @2.4 GHz, and it's giving me over 1800 PPD with WU
Project: 2653 (Run 5, Clone 49, Gen 98) (1760 points). That enables me to get 10000 PPD again after good old v1.15 GPU core and project 501x WU times. I have 64bit Windows Vista and 2 GPU clients running causing about 4% CPU usage. I could test 1333 MHz FSB to get at 3.0 GHz, but I don't know whether my boxed cooler can handle all the heat.

If someone is interested, here are some PPD of my GF8800GT GPU's with v1.19 core
with 384 point WU's:
gpu0: about 4000, clocks: 600/1500/900 (default)
gpu1: about 4400, clocks: 650/1625/900 (stock OC)
with 480 point WU's:
gpu1: about 5000
with 511 point WU's:
gpu1: about 3400

I'm thinking of running my q6600 in a virtual machine running linux and run smp for 2 cores there. Has anyone else tried this yet? I found out that the reason my laptop outscores my desktop (cpu wise anyways) is because it uses the a2 core which is more efficient. I could then run a regular client on the other free core and leave one core for the gpu.

Also, if I were to use the onboard video card instead of my 4850 and use the 4850 exclusively for folding, would I see any big difference in ppd?

Suggestions? Comments? Thanks.

Everyone running GPU2/Nvidia please report in on the Work Units you are getting. I'm on my second day of 511pt units and it's killing my farm, along with the heat and EUE's. I have only been getting work from 171.67.108.11 for every GPU I have. Anyone know how to select another server without blocking the problematic one?

I have been getting 384's and 511's...but they are random, I never got a straight day of 511's.

about how many PPD would a 8600GTS give me? my 2nd rig is going to be down till i get a new PSU. I need a PSU and a video card for it so i am thinking of just getting a 8600GTS from a friend for dirt cheap and using it in my main rig for now.

Every little bit helps out. Besides, every Folding Team needs a crazy pyro onboard:rockout:

On another note, Johnspack posted earlier about the new work units. Check out my 8800GTS G92 cranking almost 7k PPD on the new WU's with v1.19. With a few more optimizations , my 8800GS/9600GSO's might be back to their previous production. Nice work Pande Group!!!

buck could you tell me if you had any problems running 2 nvidia cards on a AMD chipset? If so what were they and how did you overcome them? I am going to be adding another card in my rig that is using a 790GX chipset

I have no problems with the AMD chipset , I am currently running:

4 x MSI K9A2 Platinum 790FX (4 x PCI-e)
1 x Gigabyte GA-MA78G-DS3H 780G (2 x PCI-e)
1 x ASUS P5Q Pro (2 x PCI-e)

So, as you can see, my farm consists of all AMD chipsets except for the P5Q which is Intel. All my cards are Nvidia. I have not experienced any compatibility issues whatsoever. The only downside is I can never run Sli :cry:

Hey Lightofhonor! I did try the "FLUSH_INTERVAL". High values, low, in between... I didn't notice results. CPU usage, same crap, I mean hi values.

Flushing is most of the time something important in life... but not really for ATI folding. :laugh:
