I don't think it the problem, i almost sure you can run 2 gpu client on 1 core,better wait for Buck adviced.I know is running 2 gpu client on 1 core and the other core running smp client.

Well this is a little odd. I have a server that I keep in my basement for system backups. Fairly basic, cheapo ECS socket 775 mobo with an E1200 overclocked to 2.8GHz and 2GB DDR2. Also has a BFG 8800GT OC to 700MHz core and 1753 shaders. Originally I had Ubuntu Linux installed on it and running the Linux SMP client I would get anywhere between 1000 and 2000 ppd (going from memory) depending on the WU.

I decided I wanted to create a video streaming setup to my PS3 from this machine so I switched it over to Vista as an OS and threw on a 1TB drive for videos. Now I use the GPU2 client on my 8800GT (driver 181.20). So I decided to install the latest SMP client 6.22 deino version to steal some CPU cycles for folding. I just fired it up and it has only run about 4% but it is getting only 452 ppd. Seems kinda low to me... In the Linux setup there was no GPU client available so I guess that is different. But the newer Nvidia drivers drastically reduce the CPU requirements during GPU folding so I figure that effect should be minimal.

I'll see if the ppd gets any better over the next day or so. Currently chugging away on a 1920 pointer with 4 days to go :laugh:

Any thoughts? Is the Linux client that much better than the Windows client? In the end I am better off in Vista since I have the GPU folding.
I've noticed that my Q6600 SMP client ppd varies quite a lot with different WU's:
1200-1400 ppd with 1920 point WU's
1800-2000 ppd with 1760 point WU's
I get the higher readings when my GPU's have slow 511 pointers and lower readings when my GPU's have faster WU's.

My Q6600 is still at 2.4 GHz because my P5N-E SLI mobo can't overclock quads.

I have the SMP client running at all 4 cores and I've set my GPU clients at higher priority.

What!?!??!

Are you using SMP client with -smp argument? That is roughly the ppd of an unicore client, I got about 200 ppd per core with that.

1. Set password for user account - pain in the ass i know
2. before you set the client to work, run the install.bat thing to sort out the mci thingey.
3. add -smp flag.

Job done :D

Also, what i do is to set the priority on the console client to idle, and the gpu client to 'low'. That way the gpu client has the highest priority and won't get bogged down by the smp.

TPU Team, for the last 9 days I didn't have a SINGLE issue with my rigs :)

Everything smooth, almost too smooth!! :eek:

I'm kind of without something to say @ this forum... :shadedshu

Most of the talking has been about SMP that, by the way, I suck...

Alright, with all this said... wtf am I complaining about :confused: :confused: :confused:

FOLD ON... we are a month away from making history for TPU!!

You do not have the -SMP flag enabled. Do you know how to set it?

aren't you taking advantage with this comment because we don't have female teammates??
Now I will forever be blamed as the reason we have no female team members. Oh well...:p

Nice job Beertinted! I was wondering if I gave some incentive to the the top folders, by passing a bunch of them, if they'd get back up and fold again! You rose to the challenge, and oily is right behind. Wish I could keep my 280 up, but I'm poor and can't afford to kill it. So I'll just keep my 9800gtx at it 24/7. I have a 4x pci-e slot on my server that I'm thinking of modifying so I can slip my 8800gs into, so it can go 24/7 too, but not sure if it's a good idea heheh!
Edit: if anyone is wondering, I passed Beer, now he's passed me!

Hmm. The gpu client swamps my system under vista so I'll probably only run it while I'm sleeping or at school. However I may get a 24/7 folding rig up soon come income tax time for very very cheap. All I need is mobo, cpu, ram, vga. I have everything else. You guys think a 512mb HD4650 will churn out good PPD? Probably gonna stick it in a El Cheapo board with a x2 3800+ and 1GB or 2GB RAM. I even have a good OS to stick on it, xp for legacy pc's :roll:

Doh. Nevermind that. I'm not getting a 4650. I think I'm going to try to get this:
http://img.techpowerup.org/090127/Clipboard01.jpg

I will put my current 5200+ in that motherboard. I forgot that I had an 8600gts laying around that I'll drop in it. The 2GB RAM will go in. I already have a case, psu, hard drive, dvd burner. The 6000+ is for my gaming computer... I'll switch it out for my 5200+ which will go in this secondary computer.

So when it's all said and done, I'll have two computers:

Gaming rig:
AMD Athlon64 x2 6000+ 3.1GHz @ ?
8GB Geil Black Dragon @ ?
9800GT @ 750/1875/2100
DFI LanParty UT 590 SLI M2R/G
Antec NeoHe 550w
500GB, 250GB SATA 3.0
DVD reader, dvd burner SATA
Vista

And then my folding rig will be:
5200+ probably somewhere around 2.75GHz
2GB Kingston HyperX @ 800MHz 4-4-4-12
8600GTS with Zalman FV900 @ ?
whatever Jetway mobo that is
Corsair VX450w
120GB ATA100
IDE DVD burner
XP for Legacy PCs

Income tax is rolling around for us early on and there's supposed to be some kind of big benefit... $150 ain't too much to ask... :rockout:

this folding rig will be at least gpu folding 24/7 once I get it running properly. I dunno if I can squeeze SMP in or not. It all depends on whatever temps I get with whatever cooler ships with the 6000+ cause I'm keeping the freezer for the 6000+

What does TPU think of this upgrade? Upgrade my computer and build a whole other one for $150 not bad. I dunno if my gaming rig is going to be a folder though... we'll see

Thanks! I just got a second system set up this weekend now with dual 8800gs in them (thanks again to buck for pointing out I misspelled my user name on one of the folding clients) I'm still trying to work out some stability issues on one of the cards, seems like it likes to stop working mid WU even though temps. are more than fine and the clocks are stable in AtiTool.... why does work always get in the way? (From looking at the results page at extreme, it looks like the card had a 113 pt. work unit??? WTF) Anyway, more points to come once that's worked out.

Hat, I don't know if you're dead set on that layout for a second setup but the MB, RAM, and CPU from buck (same setup that he's selling for only $60, if it hasn't been sold already) is working great with my dual card setup. The PCIe slots are a little close but will still allow dual slot cards next to each other. If you're only going to use it for folding, why not save about $90 and still get the same performance (only diff. is the CPU is a single core so I'm not running SMP on this system).

Are you using SMP client with -smp argument? That is roughly the ppd of an unicore client, I got about 200 ppd per core with that.
Ok i am having trouble running this SMP client, can i haz help!?

Hat, I don't know if you're dead set on that layout for a second setup but the MB, RAM, and CPU from buck (same setup that he's selling for only $60, if it hasn't been sold already) is working great with my dual card setup. The PCIe slots are a little close but will still allow dual slot cards next to each other. If you're only going to use it for folding, why not save about $90 and still get the same performance (only diff. is the CPU is a single core so I'm not running SMP on this system).
Both S-939 Sli boards are gone. I've got a Biostar 790GX A2+ Crossfire board that will be for sale. I may pair it with a x2 4850e or a x2 BE2400 and a gig of DDR2 800mhz ram for a nice folding combo. Let me know if anyone is interested and I'll give you a great deal. I still have a Abit KN8-Ultra S-939 with a single PCI-e avail for free plus shipping, but no CPU.

you know what would be really cool? If the watts I donate could be used for a tax writeoff... I mean just think... if donating CPU power could bring tax benefits like donating stuff does, how many corporations with their always-on networks would start folding? How much money could buck save on taxes :p ? How much research would be advanced?

I say we start a petition.
