BOINC ATI support thread... Unleashing the DRAGONs! Get your GPU's full worth here! - Page 71

post #701 of 1404
Maybe. The post with the guy who said 90sec for a HD4870 was a while back - maybe WU's changed recently?

I just tried 10.8 driver and it added 15 seconds to the time I got with 10.7 lol. I cbf doing much more tonight, so I'll just leave 10.8 on there and do a sweep tomorrow after work and put the 10.7 drivers back on.

I just spotted a few cheap HD4870's on ebay so I'll try and grab two of them and run 3x HD4870's until the HD6870's are released early next year and skip the HD5xxx series all together.

Also, why do GPU's process faster then CPU's? My 965BE is running 4ghz, yet it takes 3 hours to complete a work unit, that's 10x longer then the HD4870 GPU?

Sorry for the noob questions.

^^^ The GPUs are basically dedicated math machines. Think about processing a 3D game, all the math envolved. They can do the math much faster than the CPUs which arent so specailized

Which project are you talking about 90sec WUs? MW?

Make sure you have the latest BONIC manager install, and make sure you have "use GPU always" selected under the activity tab I beleive it is. I think by default it is "use GPU based on preferences" which will suspend GPU use while computer is "in use"

You might want to log into both collatz and MW and chagne the preferences for those projects to run on GPU only, and get something else to run on your CPU

Make sure that the global preferences for each project is set to "Use GPU" and in Bionc preferences that you have Use GPU Always selected.

a 4870 has 800 shaders, they're pretty dumb for standard computing, but good at anything that can be broken down into chunks and worked on simultaneously(Double precision floating point calculations, video transcoding.. even 3d gaming if that floats your boat).

5870 has 1600 shaders, 6870 will have 3200
