i7-920 Issues

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
hey guys i was wondering how fast does ur i7 fold, it seems like there is a problem with mine, it goes through the first 10% really fast then slows down like crazy, takes for every to go through each %, is that normal

im folding on big packets.

i also have two 470s folding at the same time, i have also noticed that my 470s fold much faster without the cpu working

screenshot of hfm?

what flags are you running on the cpu client? should be -smp 7 -bigadv
post #3 of 12
People usually say it backwards than you are saying. What I mean is, I have read it many times "my cpu folding suffers when I try to fold on my gpu at the same time", I guess it is logical to make the same observation in reverse. I agree -smp 7 is the proper flag for you. TPF is really specific WU dependant. The 6901 is common these days and with your cpu at 4.2, -smp 7 -bigadv flags,two 470's going I say 30 to 34 TPF on the cpu work.(I bet there is a chart for better accuracy for this)

you should, it'll leave a core open to run your gpu3 clients, your cpu ppd should increase compared to running -smp, which defaults to using all your cores (8)
post #6 of 12
Yes this -smp flag allows a core for gpu work. It is curious to note that us "dinosaurs" that are still into gpu2 do not have to give up a core for gpu work. As much as we tried to predict the passing of gpu2, all of our crystal balls were a bit cloudy as it is still with us.
