im expecting a decent 10-15% gain clock per clock, as seen in other apps too. which is cool, giving its better on the juice.
liek i said before, sb brings back single cpu folder boxes

From TPF I would say clock for clock is about 5000 PPD 24,000 ish vs 29,000 ish

I replaced the motherboard Gigabyte P67a-UD3 of my main rig 2600K (chipset recall) and I ordered an MSI P67a-GD65 B3. Been tweaking it a lot and for now I have a better overclock of both my CPU (4800mhz VS 4700mhz) and also my ram (1600mhz 9-9-9-24 before, 1833mhz 7-9-7-24 now).

Now to the folding, Linux client using VMware it's getting 57 000 ppd on a P6901! There is also a GTX460 folding on the same rig, so maybe it could be a tad higher.

Next goal, 60 000ppd

That's amazing. I think a 460 would definitely take away at least 5kppd and I wonder what the performance hit of the VM is? Please post native linux numbers if you have time.
I can't wait until I upgrade past the old 45nm i7 chips.

On the website that I download the Linux folding image (linuxforge.net) here are their finding:


Quote:
Version 1.5.0 has been updated to use client v6.34 and core A5 which reenables bigadv support under Linux and also includes the latest version of tear's Langouste. This version also supports running SMP2 and one or more instances of the uni-processor client. This image includes 4.0.4 Virtualbox additions. Initially testing has shown frame times at 30:28 running project 6091 via a 920 @ 3.8 GHz and using -smp 8. As a comparison, the frame times in native Linux using the same configuration are at 29:53.

If someone has a link to a guide for linux folding on a sandy bridge setup...I'll try that next. I know NOTHING about linux. Just that there is a penguin involved somehow.

This is excellent. My i7 980x at 4.075 Ghz is getting 68K PPD on p6901s with Ubuntu 10.10 on it right now, so you are doing really well using a VM.

I'd be really interested in seeing what it would do with Linux NOT in a VM.

I'm sitting tight until BullDOZER but this is great info.

Very impressive. Keep up the good folding(s)
