Help deciding on a dedicated BOINC motherboard/CPU setup - Page 6

post #51 of 100
I'm looking at possibly getting a couple gtx295's this summer. Can't beat the performance vs price. Quite a few available used for around $150us. For $300, can crank out as much as 3 560Ti's, or two 570's!

Umm, errr... well, if you care to put that to the test, there are two 560 Ti's in the DD box and I could set something up.

Clock speeds on GTX295s default is about 3/5 what it is on a 560 Ti... it is still a DUAL 240 CUDA Core GPU setup...

I wish I had some hard data on those boards in the spreadsheet because a lot of folks seem to like them...

Tex, was just going by gflops per card (1766). Of course, actual times would vary greatly. Some of the older equipment is still tough, though, even with the much lower clock speeds. Currently, the only nVidia card with more processing power than this is the gtx 590 (2488 gflops). I too, though would like to see some numba's.

Well, total FLOPS is BOTH GPU's together...

For tasks, most will assign one task per GPU, so you have to compare apples and apples...

All you get with the GTX295 is a 600 MHZ pair of GTX275 cards in one with a slower default clock.

Soo, to do a real comparison, compare the cost of 4 GTX 275 vs 2 GTX295 with whatever else... But for processing power per GPU, use the GTX275 specs.
