Should I fold on 2x GTX680 or not yet? - Page 3

post #21 of 23
A 680 folds like a 580, until an optimized fahcore comes out. Why would you wait?

I dont think thats the case. There have been attempts and screen shots posted that show the WU not making any progress at all. the early nvidia cards cant fold on the 15 core (fermi core) so its the same thing with the 680s

There is a thread with screen shots by me, and links in the same post showing how to set up the client to get it folding. I am on my phone so I cannot link the thread until tommorow, and will do so then. I belive the thread is titled 680 ppd. Something like that.

About folding on the 680. Depending on the wu a 580 is running, the 680 is either on par, or even better ppd wise to a stock speed 580.

However, I have only see 8019 and 8035 wu's downloaded for the 680.

I would consider the 680 on par with the 580, due to the 580 sticking to around 17k ppd on none 80XX units, and up to around 25k with them. While the 680 is a steady 20-22k for what is has folded yet.

Another thing to note, the 680 has maxed temp at 67c for anything yet while only drawing around 360w for the entire system. While the 580 runs low 70's up to mid 80c while running the 80XX wu's.

I personally would prefer to be folding to two 680's over 580's on all fronts.

If people would like, when I get home tomorrow, I can start taking screen caps of different temps and what not, and either post them in the thread I mentioned at the begining of this post, this thread, or start a new thread entirly to show the progression of kepler folding.

edit: said thread.
