[NEWS] Open Beta for nVidia GPU3 - Fermi can Fold!

post #1 of 588
Thread Starter 
Folding is now available on nVidia 4xx GPUs.

Keep an eye on the main post, as I'll be updating it as more info is available.

8/9/200 series users: GPU3 will have lower PPD than GPU2. The GPU3 client may be more stable on your computer, and might lower inusage if the GPU is needed for another application, but if you have no issues with GPU2, you will get more PPD on it than GPU3.

We have a new GPU core (core 15) going into an open beta test for NVIDIA clients. This core requires a new client (see below) as well as the latest drivers (197.45). This core is the first run of the GPU3 technology, derived from the OpenMM project at Stanford (http://simtk.org/home/openmm). You can find more information in our GPU3 FAQ (see url below).

While this release is for NVIDIA only to start, we are actively pushing ATI support (with the help of AMD/ATI), although we have no ETA at the moment. However, please do not use this client with an ATI GPU at the moment.

This is the first open beta test of this new client and core, so there are likely bugs to be found as more donors try this out on more diverse sets of hardware. Also, the documentation (GPU3 FAQ) is new too and there are possibly some errors there too. However, the client has been QA'd both internally at Stanford and with our closed group of beta testers and is looking pretty good so far. Please post bugs or issues in the GPU section of this forum.
Links available at source.

EDIT: Though Vijay has said not to use it on ATi GPUs, you can use it, and it will still download GPU2 WUs. Using this client means there is no need to add the -forcegpu ati_r700 flag for it to work on 5 series GPUs, and seems to keep the GPU at ~99% usage.


EDIT2: The FahCore_15 WUs (Project 10626/10627) have:

610/611pts, a Preferred Deadline of 2 days, and a Final Deadline of 3 days.

PPD:

Wow, after all this time they still don't even have a beta client for a proper ATI optimized client, this sucks...

Guys, the only way to get an efficient ATi client ready is to get the OpenMM client working without bugs.

This is a big step towards an ATi client though.

Finally! This is fantastic news for those of us who own a GTX4xx card. I have been eagerly awaiting the release of this client for over a month, now the wonderful day has arrived. I Look forward to sharing my results with everyone shortly.

Right... time to go update drivers... to confirm, if you don't have the latest you get the normal FahCore_11 WUs.

480 and 470 will not fold simultaneously.

Sidenote:

I've flashed the 480 back to stock clocks, RMA purposes, previously had to underclock the mem.
The mem might be causing the error, I'll run the 470 singly and see what happens.
