    PPD estimates with the P1300x WU's is all over the place. You should end up around 50K PPD.

    Oh, and welcome back!

    Did as you suggested, and they are both enabled. I will wait 'til it gets at least 1% completed before I freak out further.
    I noticed that when I installed a new GTX 660 ti in my other PC, it took a whole percentage point to realize it wasn't using a 460 anymore. Yeah, I got tired of sitting on the sidelines. Decided I needed more folding power after I slipped out of the all time TPU top 20. I'm back.
    :)

    EDIT: Just checked. It now reports a 25K PPD and climbing. :peace:

    Heh, got my 2nd 1300x wu! 40-50kish but takes 1.5 days or so for my 480. Wonder how fast a 680 can do these?

    You don't want a 680 they are not that great for folding, at best as a 7970 (105k PPD). Get a 280X (higher clocked 7970) or better.

    Hell no, if you can OC it a lot which I know that you can do. Mine is in its box but it is mostly because I don't want to install and delete drivers all the time. That's the only decent NVIdia I have left.

    Edit: Btw was the 70,712 that you got some hours ago on a 680 / 9401 ? In that case I might pull my 7950...

    Hmmm dont know. Im getting 91k on the 660 ti on a 9401, 104k on a 680 on a 9401. and 96k on the 770.

    I keep looking at AMD cards but just cant seem to get the deals i got on the Nvidia cards but I know the way the wus are going I need both. So still looking.

    I only got 350 bucks total in the 660 ti, 2- 680, and the 770.

    119k if it were a 1300x. Not bad at all and it is hard to beat these four GPUs for only $350. John get a 770 and OC the crap out of it. A 770 is in fact a 680 with faster memory right?

    yes it is but my last 680 does better than my 770. 1293 on the 680 and 1231 on 770 so far. But that 680 is wayy ahead of the other one.

    Yeah, the way its going, a 770 is lookin better. 300 for a used 680, or 350 for a brand new 770. If I wait a bit 300 for a new 770 looks better!

    Disappointing weekend. Left Friday for a weekend getaway and my wireless bridge goes down right after I leave. Both servers sat idle and could not upload finished work:banghead:. Everything is reset now.

    So the two WUs you did upload was GPUs? I noticed that there again were problems with the server I thought that it had hit you as well.

    No, I missed the early return bonus and only received base credit of 22,600 per WU.

    Well better than nothing. When BA was announced to have a premature dead for AMD 4P you mentioned that you would look into the new world of GPU folding. I assume that you have some older data for core_17 units (the new thing). Sure a 780 Ti is the king but once the mining thing has come to a natural state and AMD price drops a decent GPU pulling 200-220 W which is capable of 130-150k PPD could be the poor mans alternative. Three of these and we are talking 4P PPD/W efficiency. Two 780 Ti/290X could even beat that, maybe not in price.

    Does that ppd go up and down like it did on my 660ti? was going from 110k to 52k up and down till it finished. Didnt notice what the final total was.

    I've noticed the same thing. 13000 kept bouncing from 17 to 22 minutes. Also, HFM while correct on the percentage completed, it is consistently wrong on the ETA.

    Knowing your insane OC I start to doubt that the 8018 is generally sensible. :pimp:
    We might have the other Dane in the pie in a few days. I dropped of a 7950 to him today.
    The 1300Xs are playing well with the 14.3 beta. At least 10% up to my older drivers on my 7970s.
