So what is the best AMD card for BOINC? I'm thinking about throwing one in the DL580 just for grins and giggles.

That depends on what you want to run.  For the majority of projects I would lean to a 295x2 if the price is right.  That card would probably be the best bang for your buck if you have the PSU to power it.  For a single card, if you don't mind tinkering with some app_info files than a FuryX is going to be the best.  The issue with the Fiji cards (and to a lesser extent Hawaii GPUs) is that some projects will not run on those cards out of the box.  For a new GPU, rather than a 2nd hand card, it is a bit of a tough call.  I would probably go with a 290 or 290x if you can find a good deal like this refurbished 290 for $189. 

 

If you are at all interested in running MilkyWay@Home, or the large GENFER tasks at PrimeGrid, then a 7970/280X is still really the best double precision card.  The Titan Black also performs really well, but the price is just too high IMO to really justify it.  You can grab 2-3 7970s/280Xs for the cost of a single Titan Black.

 

The above recommendations are really price/performance recommendations, rather than pure performance. :thumb:

 

The big unknown at the moment is the RX 480.  With it's low power draw, and relatively great performance for the cost, it is an interesting card.  I am going to MicroCenter tonight to grab one, so I will post my results over the weekend.   All sold out, which saves me from an impulse buy. :D

I was doing a bunch of testing in the AMD/ATI Forum, sorry.

Here's stock with a very aggressive undervolt (-125mV GPU/-100mV Memory)

GPU Frequency: 0% (1265MHz) Stock
GPU Voltages: 800/818/898/918/968/1018/1025
Memory Frequency: 2150MHz (+150 OC)
Memory Voltage: 950
Fan Speed: 2750
Peak Temp: 55c
Power Limit: +50%

Times were ~12/30mins for the two different work units +/-30seconds.

That is slightly slower than one of my 290s at stock clocks.  With the decreased power draw, those are pretty nice results.  Thanks for taking the time to crunch some POEM. :thumb:

No idea. They still doing the fireworks tonight, or did I spend too much time playing Company of Heroes 2? Wonder if the buses are free this year to go down there, I'm not too far away from the Leg grounds (technically). Did they do the waterfall off the bridge thing too, or is that still broken?

Nice synopsis, very well said. But you missed the king of the AMD Boinc hill the 7990.

After four years running them, they outproduce anything else out there on whatever project I've put them on. AS long as the project uses OCL.

Only card that comes close to matching a correctly tuned 7990 is a 980Ti.

And that is running mine on air.....

Preliminary results with testing one of mine on water shows a 15 % improvement in crunchin power. (probably cause you don't have to underclock or under volt them after water cooling is applied, you can actually overclock them fairly well)

The HD 7990 is still the king of the hill. (but I do acknowledge that it is two generation legacy now, but so are 7970's)

Had high hopes for the 1080's being faster but from what I've heard they aren't, the benefit to a 1080 appears to be lower power draw for the work done, and the 480? yet to see one stable.

I love my 7990's.....

Hmmm, so probably best is to nab some of the older AMD cards for BOINCing? I still want to nab a RX480 when the AIBs show up. Then tinker around with it.

What about in comparison to the Nvidia cards? Right now 900 series cards are going cheap. Even though I got 2 x 980Tis, 960, 970, and a 980. tongue.gif Reason I want a red card, been awhile since I played around with one. Also there a 780Ti and Titan Black for a decent price in the local area (surprised by that). If you all are curious the 780Ti is going for $250 and the Titan Black for $350. Would you call that good prices for those?

Then there is that 980Ti Kingpin for $450, really debating if I can talk the person down a bit. Never got to tinker with a Kingpin before.

Well, went looking around for red cards for sell.

There is a 7950 going for $100. A R9 290 for $195.

.............gjogjogj, darn freaking darn it!!!! Why Tallahassee so far AWAY!! There a guy selling a R9 380 for $125!!!

Crud it, if the peep still got it, motorcycle trip excuse here I come.
O, the driving time not bad as I thought. Just a little over hour. O yeah, trip time!

Heck, that model R9 380 the guy is selling is a 350+ one (by what Newegg shows). Its a Powercolor PCS+. So for 125 bucks that is a steal. biggrin.gif Plus, finally gives me a card to smack into my Dad's build.

And if I know about my Powercolor brands. Is they can take a beating like no other.
