Started folding for the first time today, cpu usage is 100% but gpu is at 0%

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

Just started folding on my newest build. I get around 1500PPD which doesn't seem good. Thing is my cpu usage remains at 100% but my gpu is not being used at all. I thought both the cpu and gpu are supposed to be used in conjunction?

Thanks. smile.gif

also, if you haven't already, request a passkey. Once you have completed 10 SMP WUs with passkey enterred you will get quick return bonus on your CPU, and points will get a lot higher.

If the GPU you're referring to is the 7750 or other AMD GPU you likely don't even want to be folding on it. They make really bad points and will slow your CPU folding down as well.

Thanks for the replies.

Yes I was referring to the ati 7750. What surprises me is that I installed fah on my macbook pro with an i7 and it had gotten 8000+ ppd. That was insane and shocking. How can it be the my desktop is getting lower scores?

You'll need 10 WUs with SMP and a passkey to get the bonus. Might be why the i7 on the Mac was higher PPD.

I followed the guide that hermit master posted above and now my ppd has increased to 5000. However, checking my gpu load it is still 0% while cpu is at 100%.

I have already enabled the passkey.
