Just remember that 7990 is running 4x..... (I know it's an excuse, but then again I have the fastest Tahitis on the project, probably cause I have the only independent Tahitis on the project)

Still this is the first project I've seen a 480 faster than a tahiti of mine....... Opps wait a sec........ that is in Linus isn't it? biggrin.gif

Well, that changes everything, try and get that time in windows..... {chuckle}

Decidedly an Nvidea/Linux favorable project. probably something I won't be running run long term..... Currently I've got 8 on it and it pencils out to 1.3 million a day.

Besides I have a strong dislike for projects that update once a day, makes it difficult to track. (and very boring)

Just for clarification when you say 4x is that concurrently per GPU (8 tasks per video card, 16 tasks for the machine) or do you mean 4 tasks total for the machine?

16 for the machine, 4 per GPU......

My app_config....
Code:
<app_config>
  <app>
    <name>xansons_gpu</name>
      <gpu_versions>
      <gpu_usage>0.25</gpu_usage>
      <cpu_usage>0.45</cpu_usage>
     </gpu_versions>
  </app>
</app_config>

Runs very smooth and cool, and I was giving it 8 cores in process lasso. At Collatz settings, (or a bit below)

One of the problems with tracking the WU's is that they are all different lengths ranging from 9 seconds to 22 minutes. (CPU's turned off in preferences) So we have to resort to wingman searches to find comparables.

Not an easy task.....

So, for those specific WU, if I was running just those WU I would be getting 4 per GPU in 10:27 or 2:37 per WU, for the whole machine the output would be 39-40 seconds per if it was running just that specific type of WU. But it gives out all the different WU sizes all at the same time so it is very difficult to track comparisons like this...

I'll bump my 480 up to 4x and then we can at least compare our two wildly different setups. biggrin.gif

Would be interesting to see how it does at the higher performance settings, just remember that your in Linux with that card and it seems to run 45-50% faster in linux than windows...

And I cannot run a 7990 in linux...... (no functional drivers)

The Linux-Windows comparison is the most interesting thing to me. No other GPU project has been substantially better in Linux. For the most part an AMD GPU in Linux has been equal to or worse than running in Windows.

For NVIDIA that is generally not the case. Prior to the development of the new AMD Linux driver stack, AMD performance in Linux for most tasks was generally poor compared to NVIDIA.

Well, if the initial comparison holds and your 480 can beat my Tahitis running in linux, then I think they may have fixed the problem I think.....

The thing that irks me is these projects, if optimised correctly, run equally well on both types of hardware, Collatz proved that for good with it's nVideaOCL app.

Just get the project devs to implement it.....

(good luck with that)

Looking through my results, I'm not sure if running 4x is more efficient than 1x.  With variable run-times I would really need a much bigger sample in order to get some relevent averages.  

 

I did find one shared task with a known setup.

 

@Egilman at least for this one task, a 480 in Linux isn't quite as fast as it could be.  Generally speaking, for most non-DP tasks a 480 should be at least 50% faster than a 7970/280x. 

The CPU time is interesting though.  I see virtually zero CPU overhead when running 4x tasks in Linux.  The biggest spike in CPU usage, that I have tracked, is 3% usage while running 4 XANSONS tasks.
