I tried multiple drivers(used the tools on your site to remove them, Thanks!!), and am now using the most recent BOINC drivers from your site. And I updated to the newest BOINC version with VB and manually deleted everything I could find after using CCleaner to remove it. I even reverted back to stock clocks and tried with and without crosfire. Still error out on every Milkyway@Home WU, but I crunch the M@H Modified WUs no problem.

For now I just set it to not get the ones I believe I error out on, but I dont want to run a bunch of Modified WUs for fear of them not being accurate. Any suggestions??

Something I realized: a ~$100 used Quadro 4000 (GF100 , 142W TDP) performs better than any Geforce other than GTX TITAN:
Quadro 6000 , 5000, and 4000 are 1/2 FP32.

That puts the Quadro 4000 at about 200 Gflops FP64 for 142W max TDP , which is nothing to write home about but better than any Kepler GPU that isn't Quadro K6000 (~1 Tflop) or Geforce GTX Titan (~1 TFlop).

See http://www.anandtech.com/show/3961/nvidia-launches-quadro-2000-600

This doesn't hold true for the neutered double precision GK104/GK106/GK106 Quadro K5000, K4000, K2000, or K600 (FP64= 1/24 FP32 source: http://www.anandtech.com/show/6813/nvidia-launches-quadro-k4000-k2000-k2000d-k600).

If you have the money to blow on a K6000, then you could buy a GTX TITAN or HD7970 / HD7950 / HD7870XT/ HD6970 / HD6950...

Quadro K6000 ~1.4Tflop , 225W TDP
Tesla K20X ~ 1.31 Tflop , 235W TDP
Tesla K20 ~1.17 Tflop , 225W TDP
GTX TITAN ~1.3 TFlop , 250W TDP
HD7970 / R9 280X ~ 1 Tflop , 250W TDP (more close to 300) < VALUE
Firepro W9000 (7970) ~1Tflop , 274W TDP
HD7950 ~ 750 Gflops , 200W TDP <--- ~900Gflops @1Ghz
Firepro W8000 (7950) ~800 Gflops , 225W TDP (higher base clock than HD7950 non-Boost)
HD7870XT ~ 700 Gflops , 185W TDP
R9 290X ~700 Gflops , 290W TDP
R9 290 ~600 Gflops , 275W TDP
HD6970 ~700 Gflops , 250W TDP
HD6950 ~550 Gflops , 200W TDP
HD5870 ~550 Gflops , 188W TDP
Firepro V9800 ~540 Gflops, 250W TDP
Firepro V8800 ~530 GFlops, 208W TDP
Tesla C2050/C2070/C2075 ~515Gflops, 238/247/225W TDP
Quadro 6000 ~500 Gflops , 204W TDP
Firepro V7900 ~460 Gflops , 150W TDP
HD5850/HD5830 ~400 Gflops , 151W TDP
Firepro V7800 ~400 Gflops , 150W TDP
Quadro 5000 ~ 360 Gflops

Switched MOBO/CPU and added in a 7970 to the mix and now I am crunching MW like a champ. For some reason I couldnt get it to work with my old setup and my 6970s. Now they are running great.

6970s at 950 core are churning out a WU every ~2:30s
7970 at 1000 core is at ~1:25 a WU.

Shows the power of the 7970 there thumb.gif

I am running one WU per, I remember before it was worth it to run multiple WUs per GPU. Is that still the case??

Tell you what...it really likes my 550ti vs my radeons...lol!

Both other rigs have 16gb ram the 550ti only has 4gb all CPUs at 4.7-4.8GHZ and this is from overnight the last 2 days...granted my crossfire only ran a few instances but it shouldn't be doing my 7950 like that right?

MilkyWay has gone a little crazy lately, with multiple users having thousands of Aborted/Invalid tasks.  

 

It is a little frustrating to get invalid tasks because multiple users have aborted and/or errored out on the task.  The tasks that do not go invalid, take quite awhile to validate due to all the users that are constantly aborting tasks.

 

I am the top user on this particular task.  Run-time for me is what it should be, and I am 99% sure that it was my 3 wing-men that caused the task to error out.

Your 7950 should scream through tasks.  For reference, my 7970 completes standard MilkyWay@Home tasks in about 17 seconds and Separation (Modified Fit) tasks in 66 or 43 seconds.

 

It looks like your rig with the 7950 is only completing CPU tasks and all the GPU tasks have been aborted.

 

If you want to only run CPU tasks on the rig with the 7950, then I would suggest adding separate preferences for that rig, e.g. home. work, or school.  This will save you the time of downloading and then aborting tasks, and it will also keep those tasks from unnecessarily being marked as invalid. 

 

Adding separate preferences for different computers: (Click to show)

Go to your MilyWay@Home account home page and click on " MilkyWay@Home preferences"

 

 

 

Click on "Add separate preferences for home/school/work"

 

 

 

 

Select how you would like MilkyWay@Home to run in the "home" preferences.  Then click on Add preferences.  I have selected CPU only for the example.

 

 

 

Return to your account home page and click on: Computers on this account: View.

 

 

 

 

Select the computer that you would like to add separate preferences for and click on "Details"

 

 

 

At the bottom of the page, in the "Location" drop-down menu, select the location that was earlier modified with our new preferences and then click "Update"

 

 

After your MilkyWay@Home preferences have been updated, update the project in BOINC Manager.  Your new preferences will take effect the next time that BOINC Manager communicates with the project.

 

 

*Edit* After my frustration with aborted tasks, I just accidentally aborted 10 tasks.  :doh:

Great info there Alpha. From what I can tell, those numbers are spot on. My one 7970 turns out exactly as much as my two 6970s. Now I need to find someone to trade my two 6970s for one 7970 and I will be happy.
