Great work everyone
Good result for a good team!Glad to fold beside Guru3D
Well done guys!!
should be #49 soon....
... in 2.8 days
49 place for Guru 3D. That's awesome!:banana: Great job for all the folders
I almost choked on my coffee to see that I was on the top producers list on the main guru3d page. I'd been offline for a while after moving into a house and seeing how much bills would be each month. I'm back online now with 2 rigs instead of one. the first is 3x 6970's a GTS450 and a 4ghz phenomII running CPU folding (not SMP, the ati cards requre too much processor time to keep info flowing to them...)
the second I built to play around with the new bulldozer cpu, its a FX-4100 running at 4.7ghz and a 6950 and gt440 running on it. the fx-4100 running smp can pump out 4k ppd or more, but again to keep the 6950 card running well it's only running the single core client. I'm glad to be supporting guru3d again and will keep my rigs running as much as I can.
Congratulations for your position in top 20 BronzeMFP :thumbup: and I'm sure you will go higher in the list. Maybe if you try the smp client with -smp3 for FX-4100(1 core for your ati card) it will improve your ppd without affecting your gpu.
And if nothing bad happens, it looks like we'll shot up by 2 ranks in a week or so.
IIRC, the SMP cores can only use even number of CPU cores, so setting it to 3 might make the cores to use only 2 CPU cores.
But PantherX could clear about this up more than me.
Maybe you could try setting SMP to 2 then use both 6950 and GT440, or use full SMP with just the GT440.
CUDA cores don't take up too much CPU time, and it's probably better to have the SMP at full swing (+GT440) due to bonus points, even if GPU folding has a faster finishing time.
i.e my GTX560 Ti @880/2004 has a TPF around 1m30s, so your 6950 should be way faster than mine.
By the way, how come an FX-4100 @4.7GHz only has around 4k PPD?
I know you also said 'or more', but the way you phrased it it's as if you didn't get more than 8k PPD.
in all the gpu reviews now it can now say we are in the top 50 :nerd: well done team on 49th but we have got a battle on to keep moving up the list as there are a lot of big guys come up behind us
I folded smp units with an Amd 710 X3 (3 cores) and all 3 worked fine 100%load. Maybe when you have 4 cores and set the client to use just 3 it's another situation
Especially the new Hpcs team (5 million points per update)
Gratz on the great work everyone.....onwards to #48!!!
lol dont think they will be folding to long though(but all folding is welcome) i think it just a burn in for HP cloud sevice
http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/team_summary.php?s=&t=213904 40million a dayuke2::banana:
it's the lack of x87 FPU's in bulldozers makeup a normal Phenom II x4 has 4 x86 cores and 4 x87 FPU's a bulldozer based x4 CPU has 4 x86 cores and 2 x87 FPU's
oh and grats guys great work once my PB get back in to credit I'll fire up the foldingc1: again
Dunno, mine might be an outdated knowledge.
I do remember reading about it over at F@H forum, SMP section.
Maybe it's for a specific SMP core, or about an SMP core which doesn't like certain number of cores.
All I remember was that someone with available 12 or 16(?) cores (forgot the exact number, but it was more than 8), tried to set it to another even number.
It turns out the SMP core was using less than what's being set, and there was talk about how it doesn't like certain numbers and prefer even over odd number of cores.
Doesn't matter, though.
Us beggars can't be choosers, so whatever works.
What the mother-effin'-f*ck? :bang:
Ah, right, the shared FPU between 2 cores.
BD's Achilles' heel.
Regarding the -smp X values, this is what I am aware of:
3 -> It has been used and so far, I haven't come across any Projects that have issues with this value.
5 -> It has been used and isn't that common. Very few Projects have issues with it and during testing, I encountered an issue with it.
7 -> A very common value and some Projects have issues with it. I encountered some issues with it and after that, I have used 6 which eliminates the few failed Projects.
