GPU not fully utilized folding, (again)

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hey Fellow Folders!

I just grabbed a new GTX970 to put in place of a 960, did a fresh driver install, but I can't get past 75% gpu utilization. Anyone run into this on Win10?

960 > 970 upgrade. Are you finding it worth the upgrade besides the 75% util?

I'd say so, for folding anyways. I gained about 100k ppd over the 960, however for some reason I'm about 100k ppd behind my other 970 at the same frequency. It helped that I got this one for $119.99 brand new at a pawn shop though haha.

Are you running your new 970 using the same OS/Drivers as your other 970? Could it just be the variation in Work units - not to uncommon, even on my 980 I have seen 350K to 650K PPD.

Different work units will produce different PPD, but if you are only seeing 75% gpu usage then something is wrong.

What mobo and cpu? Is it just the 970 or you using multiple gpu's in this rig?

Doesn't look like hardware should be an issue then. I don't fold on windows so I'm just shooting in the dark. You have windows set to "high performance" under power options, and have FAH set to full power right?

I have the same problem with win7. When I set it to high performance it goes back to balanced. Maybe I should try the Ultra setting.
