GPU Folding Natively in Linux - Page 6

post #51 of 57
Well, I still have a long way to go on tweaking stuff, but my rig survived the night and I'm impressed so far.

With SMP6 on my OC'd (4.6GHz) 3770K and non-OC'd GTX 580's, I was pulling about 35-40k PPD under Windows. It was because those numbers were so low that I didn't bother Folding under it much anymore. Last night, same machine, under Linux ... 95,700 PPD ... over double.

Time to tweak!

something must've been REALLY wrong.

my i7's would get 15-22k ppd at 4.3ghz
580's are supposed to be 40-50k ppd each right?

They used to be 40-50k each, but they have been getting lower and lower. Basically, EVGA has bribed Stanford to make the old 500 series less and less useful in order to drive sales of new 600 and 700 series cards (and soon 800 series cards).

Or that is the popular conspiracy theory.

I wonder if they have the curve the numbers at all so we're not all getting millions of points a day, or if the recent WU's just work better on 600+ series. Strange though that you would reclaim your performance under a Linux client. Hmm interesting. At least you got your ppd back smile.gif

I'm thinking that the performance number gains under Linux are mainly as a result of the gains from SMP6 on the 3770K. Linux has always been better at CPU Folding than Windows.

But yeah, I'll take it.

For the EVGA conspiracy I would think that such a thing would be easy enough for someone to figure out by someone doing some math.

Finally setup another little folding guy from spare parts

Running Ubunto 13.10 headless with a GTX 460 - works great!
