Lost 2 more 8018 seems the rest are going thru but had 6 8018 says server does not like my results.
I submitted a P8018 without a problem about 4 hours ago?????
My efforts might have paid off. I actually sent a letter to someone that I thought might be a person Folding without a passkey. Although I have not heard from them, today they dropped what appeared to be their first "bonused" WU. Now, if only I could convince theputzer to do the same...
Yes 17,123 seems more right than 6000. You know when something goes wrong folding the WU ends at 99,99% but in reality it stopped folding long before that. Today I had one WU that actually went bad at 99%. To make up for that I tried to install my second 7970 in my 7970 rig. The PSU (700 W) rejected that and wouldn't spin the fan. OK it had done a long time doing 95% of rated but still. Ordered a 860 AX to replace it. It will happily run one 7970 so it could be a cable issue.
Thought for a second you were talking about me.
You got it right on the 10th of March
So, what's with the performance gap between AMD and nVidia? I knew nVidia had a bit of an advantage with F@H, but I don't remember it being too terribly big. I think I'm only looking at ~45k PPD with my two reference 6950/6970 cards. (Yes, yes, I'm going to flash it. Eventually..) and those over on Team Green are complaining about only getting 150k-180k per card?
Should have had it right from the beginning, just it took 10 valid WUs before I was awarded bonuses.
@xvi here's the most up to date chart that I know of: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0AmQ6YZGMTUpFdHhxNkptVncyR2k4dVV6WDBmQXRJYVE&gid=0
The other thing that you should know is that AMD now puts less load on the host CPU than does Nvidia.
IMHO, the best value card today is a GTX 780 when considering PPD/watt/$ and the fact that WU's are getting bigger and bigger.
I agree, I want 660tis min for folding cards now. Eventually sli 680s in my main rig... I'll be picking off the remains for awhile!
I wish this would continue. My 660 Ti currently is getting 93K on a 9401(1045,2,1) TPF 8'26"
Does anyone know about the perf on the newest drivers. I want to fold and use shadowplay.
There has been no update, except that Maxwells fail to Fold.
Correction: 22k combined.
The PPD can really swing according to what WU they are working on, how far along they are on the WU, etc. I would think that they would do about as good as my 7770, which does 21-27K PPD.
21 minutes left and my 7770 should finish up a 13001 job for nearly 40k
In the end, isn't this why we fold? It is why I did, and will again. A message I had to read from my stepbrother about my terminal mother (she smoked):
Hi Peter just a note on your mom she is about the same Doctor thought she was going last week but she perked up. She is in so much pain and so confused and scared its hard seeing her like this. But she is a very strong lady and still fighting this awful battle. I will let you know when there is some changes but right now she is the same as when I sent the last message.
Want this to be your mom? If you got it, fold it!
I fold for my dad, my gramps, nanette1985, and kevan mostly, and all the others that have had or know people that have had cancer, Alzheimers etc.
Hmm, trying to give a thanks to bubble, but it wont let me?
Nevermind, new system, I think it worked.....
Actually, wow, I produced for one day I'm still showing in 20th place.... and in the permanent list showing as 23rd? I need cards......
Craziness ensues... got the used 480 back up in server, since both aren't working well, I'll just stay in the daily top 20 as long as I can for inspiration.....
And for more inspiration, I just noticed Buck's total... almost .5 Bil? daaaaaaam!
Lost two grandmothers to cancer and an uncle I never got to meet to muscular dystrophy. Started folding on our family PC not long after the F@H project came out, if I recall correctly. Something like 2001 or 2002. I think it was on either a P2 or a P3.
9401 is off the list of active projects http://fah-web.stanford.edu/psummary.html. I got a 13001 for my 7970 with beta tag (down 20k) and installed the second 7970 and got one similar there.
Edit: I had to pull one card since it went to 100% fan and 97 C.
What do you get for TPF on the 13001's on the 7970's?
I'm between 20-30min on my 7770 with them....
I don't know. I turned off my rig. The second one was not running for real (17 hour was the prediction). The power draw was not including a 95% GPU and the log was staying at 4% where as the "frontpage" said 7 %. That WU had crashed. I will have a look tomorrow. My 280X is 1 % from completion so I will update soon. From my notes I did 8:18 on a 13000 with the 280X and 10:29 with my 7950 so the 7970 would be around 9:30.(9:08 it seems)
Edit:The 13001 is as the 13000 and the 9401 - unknown to FAHcontrol and the first 3 steps are done in blind. I re-installed my 7970 (yet to see TPF) and my 280X is now doing 124k. Better then the worst 9401s but worse than the good ones.
The 9100, 13000 and 13001 WU's seems to get about the same PPD on my R7 250@1275 MHz.
With the long computation time of them, I don't have a large sample to make notes from though. (34:30 TPF. )
