most of the apps that do cpu work have graphics. world community grid has a different one for each of the groups you process work for, you should check them out. its a great cause too.

What can I do to speed up my GPU times?

I'm not sure who it was, but I read that a single HD4870 should process a MW WU in approx 90 seconds - mine is taking almost double that?

Is there some configs or driver hacks that I need to do to speed things up? I even OC'd the card as follows and it only gained me 15 seconds:
stock = 750/900
mine = 800/1050

This keeps temps around 50C, I can increase the OC to 850/1100 but temps jump to 60C with heatsink fan at 100%.

Any help to speed my card up would be much appreciated


P.S. Anyone got a 4870 left over from a recent build that they want to get rid of lol.

I think there might be an optimised application for running GPU tasks on Milkway. I had problems with it though and haven't used it much because I had some trouble getting it all working nicely.

The link is: http://www.arkayn.us/milkyway/index.html

The archives come bundled with installation instructions too.

I just tried v22 and v23 from the website you linked and they slowed things down more. Each WU jumped to over 9min instead of just under 3min.

I deleted the files and restarted boinc and it downloaded the latest versions again and is back to the usualt ~3min mark for each WU.

I guess I can't speed it up further unless I overclock my HD4870 some more - what temps are acceptable for a HD4870 under 100% load?

Around the 90c mark I'd guess.. I wouldn't want to run it much higher than that 24/7. Not just the core temp you have to watch, memory temp also, as most 4870's dont have ramsinks on the ram unless you have the full cover blower.

ok, got my OC cranking along, but can't go much further withoutwatercooling I recon.

Stock = 750/900
Mine = 858/1100

Just a fraction over 14% OC on core and right on 10% OC on memory. MW WU is down to 2.50, still nowhere near 90sec, but better then mid 3's for stock clock with my card.

I'm going to keep an eye on ebay for the next few weeks and try and pick up a couple more 4870's. One went for under $60 this morning, so a couple at that price would be awesome

Or would a single 5870 be better then 3x 4870?

From what I read, having your memory OC'd don't effect the folding. Core speeds matter the most. Might be worth dropping the mem speeds down and run a test. Least that way you can keep the heat down a bit more by not having the mem OC'd.

EDIT: as for the 5870 vs 4870's .. I would say that the 4870's are quicker.
