OK I thought I had to add that and it is not there on the AMD cards. It is on the Nvidia cards.
So just for clarification, are you getting these new WU's without beta? PG needs to know if that is happening.
How do I check to see if I'll ever get beta WU's?
You have to set client-type to beta. Now where to set that is covered in that wiki (about half way down) that I referenced, although it does not mention beta. (it mentions advanced and bigadv, which is the same place you would put beta)
I'll be reading that through later today when I get a few free moments
yes no beta set on the AMD cards. Im guessing x18 wu is a beta by what you are saying and the AMD cards are getting x18 with no beta-client. So you still disagree with me? Ive learned in life that nothing is as it seems always something that comes up thats not the way it is supposed to be.
hopefully this helps manofthem on bottom right side of desktop on the folding icon right click on it and then click on the advanced control if you already dont have it up. Then when the window comes up click on configure then expert. Then click add and another window comes up. Has edit options on top line type in client-type then bottom line beta then click ok then save and you then have added the betas if you want them. If client-type beta is already in there which I doubt then you can click on it then click remove then save to take it out. Hope this helps.
Just follow this post from @thebluebumblebee
It's got pictures and everything!
@*$%*!! power company. Got to stop folding and crunching for the next few days, or I go to the next payment category. I'll be back early August.
Stopped folding on my 7850 for now but fired up the 7970 to fold on the Kreij memorial account for a while. Turned in at least 100k worth of work over the past 24hrs!
Ah man I would love to work on this but my GPU isn't folding. :/ I might be back.
Got a Gigabyte Windforce 290x today. Just put it to work folding on a 13000 showing a tpf of 5min 35 secs and 221k. Chart shows a 780 TI getting tpf of 5 min 21 sec on a 13000 and 238k.
Mine is at 1075 core and running 62c. Very happy. Its bouncing now at tpf 5 min 22 sec and 234k. Ill update in the morning see if it levels out. Core is up to 1100 now and temps 66c with fan at 75%
13001 showing TPF 5 min 28 sec and 230k, 1100 core and 67c temp
Just picked up a Kill a Watt meter and checked the 7970- It's running 230w at the wall at full load through a Seasonic M12 II 750w Bronze rated psu (1000 core and 44C) for 145k ppd on a 10467 job (TPF 6m 21s).
Will be doing some readings on the other rigs I have running here over the next day or two
230w is what mine used to run at.
That's awesome! that seems like really nice ppd for sure,
I need to try giving my 290 a littl3 OC love and see what it can throw down, but that won't be til it starts cooling down. I had to put folding on hold for now because it was just too nasty hot lately, and it makes me sad
Got readings on some of my other rigs too:
- FX-8350 rig (Norton3 in specs- @3.2Ghz/1.15v, crunching 100% on 8c in Ubuntu 12.04LTS)- 190-195w
- Xeon (L5639 ES) rig (Lil' Ella in specs- @2.8Ghz, crunching 100% on 6c/12t in Win7 Pro x64)- 195-200w*
* will setup with the 7850 folding on it next week and check it again
My 4670k @4.0Ghz/1.2v and 770 @1254Mhz running full out (3 cores folding, 1 on GPU work, GPU folding. Total 100% on the CPU still) is at a near solid 300w. Back when it was OC'd farther (Winter clocks were 4.3Ghz/1.28v and 770 @1332Mhz) I was nearing 350w. I can feel the heat rising out of my PC.
I'll see about breaking out my kill a watt on sig rig when i get home. I'm almost afraid to know.
update: on a 13000 TPF is 5 min 17 sec showing 240k 1125 core
That's crazy good! Makes me jelly
Help fight cancer, quit smoking today! I passed 7 months tobacco free on the 28th. After 40 years of smoking. And by the way, I will be looking for used kepler cards starting September to get back into folding, and I badly need a 770 for my main rig.....
Getting Kepler for Folding doesn't make sense, anymore. Look at what @james888 's GTX 750 Ti has been doing. He's getting ~68K to my 660 Ti's 72K for 1/3 the electricity.
He might also want it for gaming.
Liking the 10467 wu getting 281097 ppd!
