Not that I know of.
what if you just changed the pci id in your cards bios to say a 1900xtx? would the client then run thinking the card is a x1900 when in reality it really being say a HD2k/3k card?
hmmmmmmm idk if it detects architecture or not but you could get something like RaBit and change the name of the card....that woul;d be a waste though IMO because you would have to install 1900 spacific drivers so your 2HD or 3HD wouldnt run or act like one.
woah! Just looked at the scores/standings for contributors to TPU team -
damn hat!! takin the board by storm! Nice!
You using the SMP client, right?
is teh hd3870 client out yet?
Where is xxxx GPU client? ATI nVidia 3xxx G80 etc.
Congrats to Newtekie for overtaking me. I have been lazy recently as I have been busy.
However it won't last long my friend. I can has $7000 of new hardware to buy next month. Plus a new quad core system for meh if everything goes right.
Lets see if we can't get more systems folding, I have seen all these super nice systems running circles around mine, and none of them actually doing much. How about a folding badge or club, or something to help get more people folding? Anyone have any ideas?
I'm just happy to be on the top for once. Though I don't plan it to last long, I'm not going to fight you to keep it. I've been running a few systems full blast trying to catch you that I really don't want to keep running all the the time, namely my PS3. So my PPD should start to drop off and you should easily be able to overtake me again.
I'll probably just leave a few of my weaker dual-cores(E2180s, E2160s, Pentium Ds) running it and the single cores, and take my PS3, Q6600, and E6600 off.
I'll never stop folding though.
The thanks if for the folding.
Yup, SMP on my 5200+ Windsor clocked at 2.75GHz.
I'm happy I got my AC Freezer, now I can fold in confidence that my cpu won't melt due to heat in the summer months!
And it's not like I'm really overtaking anyone, there's probably only like 10 people who actually fold. I'm just passing up everyone who doesn't fold anymore.
speaking of - I had an issue with my current setup . . .
anyhow, I've come to the conclusion that both GPUs folding seperately is overall faster than both in Crossfire. Issue being, that to enable an extended desktop, I had to 'trick' WIN into theinking that there is a second monitor hooked up (I readied my mouse on the apply-extend desktop onto this monitor in desktop properties, plugged the monitor into the second card, clicked the button and waited for the display to turn on, then move the DVI back to the primary card). Anyhow, even though I've done the trick, it won't stay accessible after a reboot . . . I've even checked in CCC to make sure it doesn't automatically detect, but that option is disabled and all . . .
But, to have both GPUs folding, I have to be able to turn on the secondary display, and aside from hooking up a second monitor . . . anyone know any work arounds?
You may want to get with Random Murderer, he helped me out with this once before but I can't recall what all we did........
I'll try to PM him later, if he doesn't notice this post (which I doubt he will) - I almost wondered if it had something to do with installing 7.12 CCC, as I don't remember it acting up like this before . . .
I'm folding again, and ready to take my place as TPU F@H guru again
You shouldn't have a problem catching me now Steevo. My PS3, Q6600, E6600, and X2 4400+ have all been taken off Folding duty. The electric bill was starting to get a little high.
I added a new machine, and found that my turning off secondary logon service prevented F@H from launching the SMP client when others would log into their computers.
So I was runnning a couple with the dos box. Theny they would get shut of bla bla bla.....
No more. So hopefully I will start crunching more projects.
With my new system OCed to 2.4GHz (stock volts), I'm averaging, according tro FahMon, 1185.22 ppd on this machine. When I get Vista installed, I'm going for a higher OC (heard Vista can somehow handlew more), and I'm averaging a frame time of 21 minutes ATM. When a GPU client that supports HD3xx0 cards comes out, I'll run that too.
2.4ghz is probably faster than my 2.75GHz Athlonx2
you're gonna pass me up on the statsboard! heh
enjoy the speed, although I strongly reccomend getting 2GB of RAM.
I dunno about Vista handling more OC, in fact I hear more of the opposite than anything. And in all reality in my experience with XP and Vista, neither was negatively affectly by any OC I performed, and in the end, what was stable one one OS was also stable on the other. Vista will just take more resources!
I do hope that they implement a GPU for 38xx series, I let my C2D and XTX run SMP and GPU consoles a lot! I see that we're in the 300's for overall rank, which is pretty cool!
Yeah, a bunch of overclokers/computer enthusiasts should be able to pull quite a bit of weight.
I'm working on it
1763PPD for me ATM Now have two computers on it. Lookout *insert name of whoevers above me*, I'm comin after ya....
SMP client times up?? Had to redownload (if thats a word) SMP client to get it working on my machine,lost about 20H folding ,
