Weak Folding

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Okay so I've been out of the folding loop for some months now, and am having trouble getting back in.

Client: New 7.3.6 one (goes in a web page or a client on desktop...this is new to me rolleyes.gif)
CPU: AMD X4 955 @ 3.85GHz
GPU: AMD 6850HD 1GB w/ 13.1 beta/12.8 driver

I'm getting like 2-4k and the GPU says running but is doing nothing at all. Also what slot(s) should a x4 CPU and single GPU be exactly? When I folded months ago I was getting 12-15k. mad.gif

I'm assuming you have your client setup with passkey? Right click on the tray icon and make sure it's on Full. You can try running the Core 17 beta, but people are saying the 6xxx cards don't really like it very much.

Yup, I got two 6970 cards and they don't Fold very well either ... compared to my nVidia cards. Some people who are running the 7xxx cards from AMD are saying that they have good PPD numbers, but even with the core 17 update, if you are running a 5xxx or 6xxx card from AMD, the PPD numbers are really low.

He will also likely have to move down to running SMP on only 3 threads instead of 4 to allow the AMD GPU to have the CPU resources available that it needs to fold.

One of the major perks (aside from great PPD numbers on 79xx) is the low CPU usage running _17 on AMD cards, it's typically a few percent.

Oh really? I haven't used it yet (and likely will not while it's beta only) but I thought I heard that it still used enough CPU that things wouldn't progress any near normally without giving up a thread.

AMD/ATI cards don't really fold all that great, especially the old HD 6xxx series. As far as overall PPD, getting 15K is about right.

On my system, I do over 80k on a good day, but I got nvidia GPUs and a 3770k.

Of course not. VLIW4/5 lacked compute performance and that's what GCN aimed to solve and they did it very well with lower power consumption to boot as well as much better pixel/texel output
