[SOLVED] Come across this GPU WU yet?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I awoke this morning to find my GPU chugging away at this WU:

Project 7640
Points: 7718
PPD: 17.735
TPF: 16:16

375

The client is set to -advmethods

Check out the temps thumb.gif

Seems to run cooler than the 3xxx series Projects

Anyone else seen this one or is it new?

Multiple threads in here talking about how bad the PPD is for these, even though the heat is better.
Read a little further to find out more.
Most GPU folders hate them.

Oh, okay. Nothing jumped out at me with my cursory glance down the recent threads.. apologies

I guess for an 8 hr fold, the points return isnt that amazing. Oh well, they are there for a reason, so Im happy to fold em... just not too many tongue.gif

Yeah, those seem to be short lived beta units, haven't had one for about a week now.

Ya it has been about a week for me but 2 out of three cards currently have them. about 10C cooler but at 30% PPD reduction not really worth it especially because the temps are only going to be decent for a few more weeks

So to sum up;

Temps are good
PPD Production sucks

For the record - I've got 7642 on my GTX 580 and 7644 on my GTS 450 and they're reporting almost the same TPF and PPD.

GTX 580 - 7:28TPF @ 14884PPD
GTS 450 - 7:37TPF @ 14591PPD

This is on my sig rig with the CPU folding -smp as well. So much for balancing hardware capabilities with the difficulty of the work unit.
