I figure with all my GPUs it won't hurt to have one computer folding in Windows and the other 3, or 4, folding in Linux 24/7.
Yeah, true, at least they don't drop the PPD like a rock on them. Though, both of these babies probably may never run under Windows.
May try out this new Nvidia driver though for the Titans to see if it gives them a little more points when they fold. Think I should get around to setting up a dual boot on the main rig. For some reason I notice Ubuntu just runs faster in general, but can stream videos from online like a champ. Also I mostly only been playing Minecraft of late so gaming would not be a issue for me.
Basically what been holding me back from going full Linux is not gaming, but support for the digital art programs and 3D rendering programs.
Which reminds me, I need to reinstall ArtRage onto the main rig.
O here a shoot of the 960 and Titan with the same work unit. Only difference is OS.
Though quite interesting considering the core clock speed of both cards. 960 is at 1470MHz while the Titan is at stock of 993MHz. Makes me wonder when actually get my lazy butt around to flashing these Titans what they could do at near or over 1200MHz.
