How much cpu power do i need for gpu folding? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
After following your instructions arvidab and installing that driver, everything is working biggrin.gif the gpu usage is at a steady 99% and the cpu usage is only around 10%. tpf of 2m 30s, and my ppd is 22.4k on a 8073, which seems about right. Thanks for all the help guys, really appreciate it! I never thought i would have a real use for this processor haha

Hey guys silly question but can someone explain how one would start folding?? does it require a dedicated rig?
Is there software involved and what work needs to be done? I have literally never heard of folding until I read a post on why folding is important. nowhere in the post did it explain how one would start folding tongue.gif
any help is appreciated

Edit: No dedicated rig required. You can run it whenever you want on pretty much whatever you want.
