Linux is faster for folding for CPU and GPU. Folding on the CPU is up to you but is a lot less PPD/W. You'll need to reserve 2 threads for the GPUs.

Is it faster with AMD GPUs too on open source drivers? I just tried Linux yesterday (Debian Stretch/testing) but couldn't for the life of me get the proprietary drivers to work.

A bit off-topic, but is there a HWiNFO equivalent on Linux? Only thing I could find is GKrellm and gnome-system-monitor or something like that but they were super basic and couldn't see any voltages or temps (or anything GPU-related really). Also tried lm-sensors or something like that but it was useless and said something about unknown SMBus driver which I couldn't find either.

 OpenCL has not been added to the open source drivers yet.  It is on the road map, but probably won't hit the kernel until 4.12 at the earliest.

 

To run F@H in Linux on an AMD GPU, you will need to use the proprietary drivers. I haven't run Debian in a long time, so unfortunately I can't help with the install.

 

*Edit* When I last tested the performance on my 480, with the 16.60 driver, performance was nearly on par with Windows.  That was a huge improvement over testing that I did last summer.

Guess I should just scrap it and use Ubuntu. I went with that (Debian) cuz it had lots of praise and I read something about Ubuntu having built-in spyware, but afterwards read that that has been disabled since 16.04. What about a hardware/resource monitor?

EDIT: Ok so it's still better to stay on Windows with AMD GPUs at least for now when it comes to folding? I really want to switch over to Linux because I don't like where M$ went after Windows 7. Really hoping game devs start making everything work with Vulkan/Linux. I know Star Citizen scrapped their DX12 plans and are going with Vulkan, and the Civ games already work on Linux...so that might be good enough for me!

Agreed. Just make sure to have the right drive installed.

The 5960X can put some decent PPD out. My little test run on mine in Windows 7 had around 130-135K PPD on an a7 unit using 10 threads. But yeah, the PPD/Watt ratio probably sucks. tongue.gif Plus, it sure gets toasty.

My best advice to thrgk is to fold with the Tis and use the spare threads on the 5960X to do BOINC units. Linux runs nicely with both going.

I'm tempted to see if I'd really get much more PPD on my main rig. Could I just Linux off of a USB flash drive and test it that way?

Any 1080ti (non founders ed) numbers?

Give me a bit of time. I just got my 1080 Ti SC today.

I will make sure to submit numbers.

Yay!

I decided to go ahead and pull the trigger. Ordered an EVGA SC 1080ti. Gotta get my folding output up a bit smile.gif
