FAH GPU client released - Page 3

post #21 of 63
Just think of those DX10 cards. I can fold on two cards (if I could ever power them) and my core. Think if you had a quad cord with that. Better yet think of your electric bill!

Its gonna be like in Christmas Vacation when he gets the lights to work and half the city goes down.

Im running both. Just have to be sure the GPU client is in a seperate directory from the CPU client.

^- YES it will!

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Do they have a projected time to linux compatability anywhere? It does look like it will be a while...

Remember though- DON'T just focus on GPU's! DIFFERENT simulations are done..

And.. Drool. That is all.

I am having a strange issue where in the tray, it doesn't display work done. But in display it says somethign like 68303/0.

Hrm, I hope its actually doing work and getting it uploaded and such.

This thing is cooking! My GPU is at 50C, which almost NEVER happens. I hope my other stuff doesn't crap out because of the constant draw.

You have an X1900 at 50C and you complain? That's chilly for such a card

EDIT: you have water... never mind.. still a good temp

Oh well, maybe they will get it one day.
It's not that they cant get nvidia cards to work, its that nvidia cards are not good for folding. The nvidia GPU's architechture just cant process data like an ATI, resulting in very poor folding performance.

Any word on X1800 support?

At first, we will launch with support for X1900 cards only. X1800 cards do not provide the performance needed. These cards are actually quite different -- they have different processors (R520, R530 vs. the R580 [in the X1900 series]). The R580 makes a huge difference in performance -- its 48 pixel shaders are key, as we use pixel shaders for our computations. However, we are working to get reasonable performance from the X1800 cards (1/2 to 1/3 of the X1900) and we will likely support them soon (hopefully 1 month after the initial beta test roll out).

What about video cards with other (non-ATI) chipsets?
The R580 (in the X1900XT, etc.) performs particularly well for molecular dynamics, due to its 48 pixel shaders. Currently, other cards (such as those from nVidia and other ATI cards) do not perform well enough for our calculations as they have fewer pixel shaders. Also, nVidia cards in general have some technical limitations beyond the number of pixel shaders which makes them perform poorly in our calculations.

Is the GPU client for Windows XP only, or has it been tested on other OS’s like Linux, Mac, and Vista?
We will launch with Windows XP (32 bit only) support only due to driver and compiler support issues. In time, we hope to support Linux as well. Macintosh OSX support is much further out, as the compilers and drivers we need are not supported in OSX, and thus we cannot port our code until that has been resolved.

Are there any plans to enable the client to take advantage of dual-GPU systems like CrossFire, or even 3-slot systems that can support three GPUs?
We will not support this at launch, but we are aggressively working to support multi-GPU systems.

Its not updating for me either. I hope its doing something and not just stuck there.
