Isn`t advanced the flag that used to be when -bigadv was available to Windows? For gpu clients the flag should be beta not advanced.

Tim_H November 15, 2013 07:59 PM

no, -bigadv was the flag :rofl:

with the gpu's these have been released on a limited basis as advanced but most are still beta, it about triples the points with the beta flag if you're using a gpu that's capable of getting Core17 work units

also, I switched drivers. Installed 326.80. I was running the latest, 331.65 or something like that. It just finished the last unit and picked up a 7810. Only done a couple frames but showint 78000 in HMF :thumb:

Do you know what they did with the newer driver releases that killed it so much?

No idea but it still hasn't been fixed from what I've heard from people w/ the same issue. Thankfully I just run the GTX780 so no issues for me. :biggrin:

well, they should really do something about that. Not that its the first time though, but the fact that I was only getting 33000 and with a driver change I'm now showing 85000. oh well I'll take it. I am noticing though that my GPU load isn't getting above 95% for the 7810 WU.

I'm still happy with the 85k that I'm getting now over what it was getting.

90-95% GPU usage is perfectly normal.

Tim_H November 16, 2013 09:25 AM

Perfect, thanks. I'm all up and running now.

Nice !

I've also reverted to the 326.80's , and I too am getting better results.

Cheers ! That's awesome.That's the first advice from this thread ! ; don't go with current drivers !

Does anyone have any information yet on the folding performance of the gtx780 ti's?

MARSTG November 20, 2013 06:22 PM

i just got a 8900 wu without the beta flag!

LoTech November 20, 2013 07:58 PM

Started getting 7810 and 7811 again this past weekend. Now all I have are 7810/11's. But, this time the credits seem smaller than before, about 10-14,000/wu whereas a couple of weeks ago they were worth 20+ thousand/wu. I still have the beta flags on.
