So far my 3 bigadv rigs have seen a 1-2kppd increase with A5, Win7.1(x2) and one Vista Business.

Well I configured Ubuntu Server 10.10 last night on the 48-core and I still haven't received a BigAdv.

Do I need to ENABLE Advmethods? I am running without it and so far I've only received SMP units.

The one SMP unit I received that wasn't a 670x (censored) unit saw a time-per-frame reduction in the 9 second range and went from typical 95K PPD in Windows to 155K PPD (!!!!) in Ubuntu. This is only like 20K PPD less than BigAdv in Windows for me.

Pretty scary.

I'll try the SR-2 either tonight or tomorrow with either Ubuntu or Gentoo. If this continues, all the GPUs are gonna stop folding and my four folding boxes will be Linux only.

-smp 48 -bigadv should be the flags to use.

I have -smp 48 -bigadv and -verbosity 9 and no Advanced methods enabled in client config or flags.

Very strange. They just released them and already suffering from a shortage. Meh...

Still getting over 150K PPD on regular SMP is fine for now. Good thing I held on to my Win2k8 boot drive if I need it :)

Update: First few units of a p6901 are finished, and running at a rate of 7:33 per frame. That's 295K PPD according to HFM.Net.

yeah, the first two work units my SR2 did in debian were not bigadv, even though I had the -bigadv flag active.
I haven't played with my SR2 or anything, but it was sitting around 70k PPD (I dont remember the work unit number). I need to do a lot of tweaking to get things working.. but I didn't see a bigadv workunit in linux yet. I assume they're out there?

I'd really like to know what bigadv numbers were like under Linux for an SR-2. If it isn't a big improvement I am not going to both since I know eff all about Linux.

Well looks like I'll be trying Linux again. If I were to get a 1.5 minute lower time per frame that would make my PPD like 200,000.
