Guys! Folding isn't like running video games! nVidia cards are just simply and plainly better at a basic hardware level for folding.

The converse is true for bitcoin mining and "solving crypto problems" /evil laughter

The 1000 dollar titan would get smoked by a single 6950 for mining bitcoins.

It's simply a difference in how the hardware is designed and software can't change it.

My brother had a similar problem with running a certain problem on his work xenon computers. They were 10x as slow as a 2011 based 3970. And yes they can afford the extra 400 bucks for 1% more juice. Go figure
