Anyone with a Radeon X1900, look at this - Page 3

post #21 of 27
well if it works alot faster then the CPU folding program, then this might be useful for those people who have more then one computer folding, if they have that card in it.

It's impossible to compare if it is faster or not at this point. The GPU cleint does not work on the same projects the CPU client does. They have created completely new clients to take advantage of the GPU's power.

While points are not what matters, they do give us a easy method of copmparing the two since they do not run the same projects....

The project my card is working on now (and hopefully completing and uploading soon without errors) is project 2722. It is worth 200 points and will have taken my card about 11-12 hours to complete......a very rough average would mean about 400 points a day, which is not bad......however, most people with X1900 cards are running high end, dual core CPUs....not many 2.4Ghz Pentium4 systems with a X1900 out there, not that I have seen anyway.....

My 920 @ 3.8Ghz does about 425-500 a day on a rough average (been getting those massive 600 point 24xx series WUs lately). I have only done 2 WU with my E6700 at stock speeds and part of the time the cores were at 50% as it is being broken in, however, it does seem that the E6700 is about twice as fast as my 920.......

What this leads us to conclude is that the GPU is "faster" than a single core CPU, however, most dual core CPUs will do more work, and the Core 2 Duo based dual core systems will blow the GPU away*. Since the GPU client does not play well with the CPU clients, it is a tricky addition to a farm....



* - note, I compared my stock E6700 to my stock X1900XTX, both can be overclocked for higher performance.....but it is unlikely the difference would be significant.

keep in mind, it's only a beta. Kind of like how a fast pc can barely emulate a Playstation one. Just give 'em time to smooth out the code and boost the productivity.

It only works on 1900's, and im almost certain you can fold on cpu AND gpu at the same time.

I understand it's a beta, not faulting them at all for the troubles.....just stating my experience with it so far. I tried to log into the Stanford forums but my old eyes can't read the visual confirmation explosion of colors they require and it won't recognize me.

Stanford says it can not, and it crashed my system when I tried. Some people have gotten a single CPU client to run on a dual core machine with the GPU client as well, but it is very buggy when doing this.

Well then i stand corrected. Hopefully in later versions it will allow usage of ALL cores in the system.

Perhaps this in itself is why AMD bought ATI! I wonder if there is some design melding implications here?
