I've seen some used 7770s in the range t_ski mentioned, but new I haven't found much other than ~$100-115

I'm actually looking now for a future purchase and trying to figure out what the best option is :)

OK, I'm doing 12 on each now but gonna test up to 24 on each as 12 gives low CPU usage

What are your WU completion times? A single 7970 with 10 threads/0.8 CPUs keeps my 3770K loaded anywhere from 30-70% most of the time (100% on startup and many times when WUs align with each other) with WU completion times of 5:30-7:30.

Times are in the range of 6:00-7:30 but I got 4 threads more on my 3960X, WU times are not so important as you need to see the average time on the 24 and then divide that by 24 then you get the completion time on one WU. If you do 48 WU's and do the same then you can compare.

Example: 24 WU's average completion time is 7:00 mins/24= 17,5 second on each WU
48 WU's average completion time is 13:30 mins/48= 16,875 second on each WU

KieX's system that I'm renting has a pair of HD7970s on an 2600k @ 4.4 (IIRC)--running 10 WUs/GPU and no CPU WUs, time/completion is about 9:00 or so per WU.

If you get 9:00 mins on each WU when running 10 on each 7970 that means you finish 20 WU's every 9:00 mins right?

So a single WU's time should be 9:00mins/20= 27 seconds?

The problem is the alignment of the WU's and I want to find the best number of WU's to run where that's not an issue.

I hope they will come up with more GPU WU's after HCC is finished.

That sounds about right to me. I'm getting just shy of 200k PPD (usually 190-205k) from it ATM :toast:

My point is that if you increase the number of WU's to 12 per GPU you should get between 220-240k Boinc on that setup :toast:

Thanks, I'll give that a shot tonight :toast:

EDIT: Apparently I was poorly estimating the time--it looks like it's just a tad over 8minutes/20 WUs instead. I'm still going to try 24 at once to see.

ok fine, i'll try 24 also. ;)

I wonder at what point though my cpu will be holding it back. I'll be doing each WU w/ .33CPU lol

That's what I have KieX's setup doing. Shame that the GPUs are 5000km+ away, or I'd throw them in the 3930k and they'd have 50% more CPU to play with :)

Welcome back Mydog:toast:

You got three 7970's in one rig?
You should then finish 36 WU's every 9:30 mins approx and that's 15.83 sec on each which is very good.:toast:

We'll see on April 1st :)
Told you I'd be back some day :toast:

Good luck, and post your findings :toast:

That would be when you see the single WU time increase then you should go down on the number of WU's until you find the "sweet spot" :toast:

At a certain point your ppd will plateau and you'll see diminishing returns. If you hit that point with less wu's running than someone else's similar setup, with a better cpu, then your cpu is likely maxed out...

I flatten out my 7870's at 8-10 wu's (FX-8's) and max out at around 70k ppd, which should be max output for the gpu ;)

At a certain point your ppd will plateau and you'll see diminishing returns. If you hit that point with less wu's running than someone else's similar setup, with a better cpu, then your cpu is likely maxed out...

I flatten out my 7870's at 8-10 wu's (FX-8's) and max out at around 70k ppd, which should be max output for the gpu ;)
Yep. I, as well, run 8 WU's on the 7870. I tried to run 10 but it made the system pretty much unusable. Once I dropped back down to 8 it made all the difference in the world.

@MyDog: Welcome back man!!!!! :toast::toast::toast:

You got three 7970's in one rig?
You should then finish 36 WU's every 9:30 mins approx and that's 15.83 sec on each which is very good.:toast:

We'll see on April 1st :)
Told you I'd be back some day :toast:
I did have all three in my main rig when I had three HD 7770's in the second rig. However I sold the three HD 7770's and now have two 7970's in the main and one in the second rig. When I had all three 7970's in the main rig I only ran 10 WU's on each...

I use my i7 laptop for nearly everything--even gaming :shadedshu

It is so, so hard to play Portal 2 on a HD4000 when I have a HD7930 nearby--but at the same time I feel and intense desire to keep my GPUs crunching :laugh:

I left the computer crunching today while I was gone. When I came back a nice BSOD on the screen, probably missed a couple crunching hours.
Not sure what happened...

that sucks :/

Hope you'll find why :)

I just sent back the board from my wrong order (for my customer, a P8B75-M cause I forgot it wasn't doing Raid), and NCIX told me:

We have received your motherboard as of today and upon inspection we noticed a several bent pins within the CPU socket. In this case because this would be considered as customer induced physical damage caused by improper CPU installation this is not covered under Asus nor our warranty. In this case you have 3 options. 1) We may have this sent to Asus for repairs but there is a service repair fee of $120 + applicable taxes, 2) we may have this sent back to you as is or 3) You may have this motherboard abandoned. Please get back to me on this at your earliest convenience and let me know how you wish to proceed.. Pictures are available upon request.

My reply:

Umm is that a joke? The board was in shape when I sent it. It was working, no bent pins. I know it, it is not my first time and I have checked all before sending it. Do you really think I would sent back a board with bent pins for fun? fee of $120 + applicable taxes? Really, you must be kidding me, that board worth like half of it... If you guys doesn't want to do anything, as I sent it in perfect shape, just send it back to me (no shipping fees) I'll just get in touch with Asus, as this is a joke. Thanks"
Seriously, there was no bent pins...

I'm sorry. This is why my policy is to always take a picture of the board with a stand with the date before I ship it off, so that, should anything arise, I can provide the pictures.
