13001 GPU unit just me?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I picked up a 13001 gpu unit last night 6% in 1.44 days to go. Have tried restarting came on again with an even longer ETA redface.gif Anyone else getting this? Running the 780 in my sig 1123 core not overclocked over factory.

Base credit is 17123, estimated credit 34356 so it thinks I'm doing ok-ish. I'm not so sure myself, running 335.23 drivers not had any problems with other WU's.

Sorry guys TPF seems to be coming down, only 7 hours now, still longer then any other I've had yet. Guess it might come down more. I was 2 hours in and it was still at 1.44 days just wondered what was going on redface.gif

Your gpu is doing fine my book either way. These WUs for GPUs have gotten huge compared to a few years ago. I had a GT 8800 that could crank out a WU in a couple to a few hours now I have a GT 440 and it says a WU eta is a couple of days to a few. Then again the deadline for it is in a month. Did I just get lucky with a big WU for my gpu or is this normal? It used to be that my cpu took longer with WUs than my gpu but now it seems to tides have turned.

Its a bit of a weird unit, I've only been folding since December so I'm new to it, but with this GPU most units take 3-6 hours and 0x17 ones usually have 150k-ish ppd. I do the 0x15 units as well because I figure that someone has to, they usually get much less ppd like 30k and take the same sort of time.

This unit is about 20k ppd 17k base and 34k to 50k predicted points depending.

So this unit is a bit of a mix. The ETA has fluctuated from 1.5 days to 7 hours and then back up and down. Its the only one I've had that has changed TPF and ETA so frequently, and its doing it again this morning although making slow progress smile.gif

My CPU I'm used to taking a day that's normal biggrin.gif

Yep as I expected your gpu is stronger than mine. The type of WU my gpu is working on is a 0x15. Can you really modify that to tell it to download a 0x17 for the next time?

I believe that there is a setting to prefer to download the advanced beta units which give better ppd such as 0x17, its not guaranteed though AFAIK. That's how I understood it at least could very well be wrong.

I had a quick look for a guide for you, no luck but i definitely recall reading about it before somewhere. I'm no expert (obviously tongue.gif) but I'm sure there are plenty of people here who can help you with that thumb.gif

It existed in the days of console clients but I can't find it in these gui clients.

Edit: I just read that the WU my gpu is working on is much bigger than usual WUs but the base credit for it is only a little over 14k. I'd love to get a WU of 50K as you said for my CPU. (not gpu because I don't know when it would ever get done since I set the gpu WU to idle because it affects user performance) The coders for the software have improved a lot since the console days but I still see room for improvement such as getting it to only using idle energy of a cpu and gpu like what handbrake does well with cpu. (where it uses 100% of the cpu or gpu but doesn't affect performance)

You have to configure a slot for advanced work units in expert mode

from the F@H home site

v6: -advmethods
V7: client-type advanced

Sets a client preference to request late stage beta work units if available. This is only a request for a specific type of work unit, and is never a guarantee the client will received this type of work unit. If none of these work units are available, and regular work unit will be downloaded instead.

I think this is how you avoid the 0x15's I'd love someone to confirm it though. Not fussed myself I just keep folding, the pints are fun but not the main point smile.gif

EDIT: Although the pints are also fun of course I meant points wink.gif

Also you do see in the client you can set the level of folding from full, medium, light, idle light? Which would solve your other question I think?

I see on the site where it is mentioned but it doesn't explain how to do it. (there's no option in the advanced tab that I see as it claims there should be) And yes I'm aware of those modes although I only have 3 light, medium and full. I'm running a modified version of medium where the gpu wu is set to idle. Also I know in the end it's not about the points obviously but it'd be nice control over the size of wus that your cpu and gpu work on.

It's under configure/Slots/add. But as I say I would read some guides or start a thread I'm not really the guy to tell you the advantages and ins and outs. smile.gif
