Low PPD on GTX 570 Twin Frozr III

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I am getting low PPD on my new GTX 570. Here is a screenshot. I've seen 560ti's with much higher PPD then this. Could it be a driver thing? Or is this card just not a good folder?

Are you using the -advmethods flag?

I have a 590 (Essentially two 570's) and I get ~5k WUs on each with them.

Unfortunately it just may be a bad card for folding. I had experienced the same thing back when I had a 570- basically my old 470 could beat it out clock for clock. The card itself performed exactly as it should in benchmarks, games, but wouldnt fold. If you search on Google 'GTX 570 Low PPD' you can see that this is a widespread issue.

Here is my thread I made about it: http://www.overclock.net/t/954011/570-450-low-ppd/0_50

I havent had a chance to see if there are any new fixes, but when I was trying to fix it I tried updating/rolling back drivers, updating BIOSes, using different clients, changing around the card placement and nothing would fix it. I eventually gave up on the card and bought a 580.
