Yeah, I did some folding under Linux some time ago. Think I just ran FahClient and remote view. My biggest problem was I tended to run distros where it was difficult to get the AMD driver running.

I don't really know. I've kind of given up on proprietary drivers with Linux.

Well crap. Looks like my F@H days are numbered until the fall. Friday might be my last day. I was trying to get to 300M.

I run most of my rigs under Ubuntu or Mint with the Nvidia drivers.
Even have the latest Ubuntu working on my Xeon rig.

The mining hate is strong with this guy:) but seeing as your folding for science He might accept your Offer without blowing you Out od the water :)

On the contrary I have my 1080 ti for sale right now for $570 shipped, and would love to help a Folder out. I fold as well from time to time, though I haven't this year at all, just have been too busy raising a child, not my child, my 8 year old niece. lol

also I don't hate miners. I just hate how one of my favorite hobbies is now being looked at just for money, this used to feel like a very personal hobby, tight knit community, and just overall good times... now its just all about money, i dunno how to explain it, something just feels different these days, i dunno

Thanks. I knew about @lynx29 's listing and had even intended to put it in my post, but forgot. The Poseidon cards are just so special that I thought I'd make mention of it here, in case someone wanted to split the cost of running over there with me...
That Duke cooler should be great for F@H.

Anyone hear anything about RTX and F@H yet? If performance is based on CUDA cores, only the RTX 2080 Ti looks to improve on the GTX 1080 Ti, and even then it's only an increase of 768.

I doubt that folding will have any advantages in the near future. I for one will not be the first mover.

I am wondering if a Firepro V5900 would still be a viable Folder. It's a 2GB GDDR5, DX11 card. I found a nice deal, $55, and I am wondering if it is worth it, as a folder.

I have a PowerColor Red Devil RX 580 I am working on getting going, build is becoming a slow process, how would the V5900 compare?

Thanks, from an old 7850 Folder.

I have no specific info on that and whether you can Fold on it, but it is Cayman based which is the HD6xxx's for the desktop GPU's. I'd avoid, and IMHO, $55 is WAY too much. Just stay away from anything older than HD7xxx. Maybe a RX 560?

Thanks, I was wondering if it would be usable. Also, I used to Crunch on the HD7850 I have but, it stopped getting jobs because it couldn't run them. ? So, are there jobs that I could be using that on, now? It's a 2GB MSI Twin Frozer, that used to do very well! Then, it appeared to be useless, and I put it on the shelf. Then the computer it was in died, and is on the Donation shelf. I still have the GPU, and will Fire it up, if it will still work...on a Linux box.

Just shy off 2.2 MPPD for the 2080 Ti.... From F@H forum

I'm at the point with my slow internet that I couldn't really take full advantage of a GPU that fast. My last upload of a similar size WU took 9 minutes (540 seconds) which would lower the end result with more than 200K PPD. I will keep an eye on more results but I think that my next folding GPU would be a GTX 2060.

Getting ready for this years folding season- have 2x GTX 1080's this year :) Testing them now on my 990X AM3+ board and looking like 1.3-1.4M ppd!

Question- do I really need an 8x minimum slot to run the second card? I know it's needed for Sli but for folding?

Might setup the cards on a Ryzen B350/450 board but the 2nd PCIE slot is only 4x AFAIK

Getting ready for this years folding season- have 2x GTX 1080's this year :) Testing them now on my 990X AM3+ board and looking like 1.3-1.4M ppd!
Now that it is winter I might just bring my 1080Ti online folding...

Question- do I really need an 8x minimum slot to run the second card? I know it's needed for Sli but for folding?

Might setup the cards on a Ryzen B350/450 board but the 2nd PCIE slot is only 4x AFAIK
From what I have seen, PCI-E slot bandwidth can become a bottleneck. However, the PCI-E 3.0 x4 slot is going to give the same bandwidth as the PCI-E 2.0 x8 slot in the 990X. So I don't think you'd be loosing anything.

I'd look at your PCI-E bus bandwidth while you are folding. If you are maxing it out on the 990X, then you'll be maxing it out on the second slot of the B350/450 and it might be holding your PPD back.

I lost around 2% points by going from PCI-E 2.0 x16 to 8 on my 1070. The GPU was hanging and not making full contact, hence only x8. It took some days before I figured that out. I get 600-650k PPD before upload on my accident 3.7 GHz "i7 970" so you should get a bit more. 2050 MHz or there about.
