i haven't used the -advmethods flag...would it make up for the difference? I do have 1 GPU client running per core so they're both crunching away. i'll add the -advmethods flag to both clients..should I be adding that flag to the 4870x2 and the 8800gt as well?

There are bonus points for doing WUs by setting that flag (I learned this recently myself lol).

Even with that flag, still does not make up for the missing 4K or so. I have never had a GX2 but word is they are supposed to pull in 10K no problems.

Also, check out the "new core" thread...there are some nice WUs coming that have lower temps, available only with the adv flag.

So yup! Add the flag!

The new 5902 WU's are the same as the 5900's just 4x the size...

Check Your Folding Rigs - New FahCore_14 Released

@Nademon; have you added the -advmethods flag to your gpu's, the Nvidia ones seem to require it to get the new 5900 and 5902 WU's. If you are getting a lot of the 511's that's what's keeping your ppd down, if so then ~18,000 actually sounds good. The 20,000 ppd you got that day is more like what you should be getting without the WU's.

I believe a GX2 is equivalent to two 8800GTS cards, not counting the WU's it should do ~4000 to 5000 ppd for each instance.

@ chrisk; The 548 pt WU's are ATi only I think , just like the new 5900 and 5902 seem Nvidia specific...

Yeah as soon as I added the -advmethods it immediately went to the new core and the new WUs

If this is true, it would be interesting to see if there is any difference between the 512MB and 1GB versions of a GPU...

For core 14, RAM usage is dependent on both the WU (#atoms) and the amount of RAM present on the card (it will keep more things in GPU memory if the card can support it).

Shhh don't let this get out but I'm squeezing rjbarker pretty hard to come join the folding fun...

He's got a i7 920 and 2 280s and I think a 9800gtx on another rig...

Quick someone make sure we have the beer fridge stocked for the new recruits.

Thats good news, hopefully all goes well this time.

It'll be interesting to see who breaks the 30,000+ ppd 24hr avg. mark first, both you and zlojack have some beefy Foldingware coming online...

@Alwaysrun; keep up the pressure, it would give his rigs something to do while he's away...
