GPU Folding Question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I'm already folding a q6600 and x2 4800+ but wanna delve into GPU folding... I know the x1950xt's are great choices, but don't wanna shell out over 100 for a card to be used just for folding... Do any of the later ATI cards work with the GPU client? HD2600XT looks appetizing, or just a standard hd2600... anything?

Only the X1950 series work as of now. The GPU client also requires 1 core of the CPU.

The GPU client for the 2xxx and 3xxx series ATI cards is being internally tested by Stanford right now, so it shouldn't be too long before that is released. And that new client uses CAL instead of DX9, so it may or may not require a dedicated CPU to keep the GPU fed with Data. Don't write it off just yet, but don't jump too soon either.
