thanks for that, backs up what i said earlier about CUDA support being the key (an 8 series feature)
Just done a fresh install and am going to try out the 5.92 beta SMP.
Has anyone running it noticed any improvement in PPD or is it just more stable than the older client ?
No real noticeable PPD improvement. I think the main fix is they change the MPI version used, so the client doesn't crash when the internet connection is lost anymore(great help for people on wireless connections).
OK I am on wired connection here but installed it anyway to try it out.
Folding at the moment so all is good...only thing is when I open up the DeinoMPI gui ,under the cluster tab,it says that it is not installed on my PC
just joined adding my 3850s to the folding
i have 2 clients running but only one card is being loaded? card 1 is @ 100% card 2 is @ 20% anyone know how to get them both to be working
Am climbing teh userlist!
Sweet the console really picks apart the wu's. folding my 10th wu!
im having problerms wiuth teh gpou client on my 3870 help.
it seems as if its doing no work unless i turn on the display and its counting up to a million, and its taking forever .. sometimes it hitches to 1 iteration per secnd, whats that for?
i realise its a test, but its buggy didnt kno wwhat it was i was hungry
Nvidia GPOU client running man this thing is CRAZY!!!! fast you have no idea!!!...even in beta this thing rocks socks....i did 400/5000 in about 2min..
damn. I need to get me a new video card. What cards does it support on the Nvidia side?
8 series up. i do bealive
i did that in like 5min
5 min. That's pretty impressive. Do you run one on the CPU and the graphics card or are you not supposed to do that. I haven't really looked into it since I've never had a capable graphics card before.
i actually dont know...i got mine frome someone i know inside.....today it was relesed public....it dos good...it loads my cpu at 50% so i dk whats up tith that but my cards are deff being used...idk if you can set it to use all card or not the settings arent very good....but as for running the CPU & GPU client it can be done..i just havent set up the CPU 1 yet...but ith the GPU client loading 1 core if you use the smp client dont expect you use your rig....im sure you would get a smoother effect using the single core CPU client with the gpu client besides iv cranked off 6000 points in about idk 45min so im doing well each one is worth a little over 3000ppd per core...and with my 9600's stock i can pull a core finish it and send in data in about 25ishmin...also just a note...ocing the grafx mem ont get you anyware...the core though will increase speed.
Yeah, I wasn't planning on running the SMP client if I did run both, but I was curious about running the single core one.
it will work it will just strain the rig
where can i get cat 8.4?
Just to clear things up for some of the poeple new to the GPU client(us nVidia users mainly). The GPU client always loads 1 core 100%. I don't know why exactly, but it does, and if you run the SMP client and try to use the core the GPU client is using the GPU client will grind to a halt.
If you have a dual core processor, you can run a CPU client on the other core without problems.
If you have a Tri or Quad core processor, you can run the SMP client on the other 2 or 3 cores you have available, but you have to set up the client properly to achieve this.
If you want to run the SMP client on your remaining cores, you have to set the advanced options of both clients. In the advanced options there is an option to set the priority of each client. You need to set the GPU client to low and the SMP client to idle. This gives the GPU client priority over the SMP client, so it will get the single core that it needs to do work. If you don't do this, then the SMP client will take over all the cores, and the GPU client won't get any work done.
Edit1: Unfortunately, it seems I can't run the GPU client currently because it is incompatible with Vista 64. Though I have WinXP on my 8800GS machine, so I might try that, I'm interested to compare how it performs compared to Solaris's 9600GT.
Edit2: Well, it seems to run on Vista64 just fine, so I don't know why they claim it won't. It is doing work on my 9800GTX and says it should take ~4 hours to complete the WU.
my PPD just skyrockerted using the modded 177.36 drivers in the tweak thread i went from 29xx/30xx to about 38xx
@newtekie youll notice that the proteins fold at a rate of 50 before update...for example it will go from 1000 to 1050 but its a little off fahmon drops the eta by ~2min+ with every 50 completed..it really cranks through WU's
iv done 3100/5000 in about 15min.
It looks like it won't work on Vista64, it keeps giving EUE saying I have an Unstable Machine, even at stock settings, so I assume that is why they say it won't work on 64-bit machines.
that blows run in compatability? im on 32bit XP atm because i needed to test something for it...but i hope when i go 64 i dont loose it....id be a tad bit upset....
just to answer an inevitable question..
their WILL be SLI support for 2+ GPU's but not atm.
just finished at 4k ppd.
Compatibility gives the same result. Hopefully they add 64-bit support soon.
kes me wiocked unhappy!!
I got it up an running on my 8800GS, FAHmon puts my PPD at about 4700, that makes me happy.
