Yep, just wondering which one's most efficient for folding on these 2 GPU's right now. Also, any issues with folding on Ryzen right now? Mine just says cannot get work assignment.


I'm still here.

I haven't heard of a good/bad one in awhile.

Make sure to set the CPU to an even # of threads. 10, 12, or 16.

I'll stand by my modified 369.49 Quadro drivers for Maxwell chips. Stability... At least less TDR with high overclock, cores might still fail. Takes a step out of fixing the issue when it does happen.

Issues on Ryzen? I haven't been able to quantify this but I feel as if doing 2 GPU folding it's a little wonky, at least under Windows. It felt like it wasn't able to allocate resources effectively, the ppds felt low.

Yes I used feel instead of that I measured it with numbers... It's one of those strange computer things where I think the feel matters more.

Ryzen CPU wus are great, just make sure you get A7 cores.

For the team comp 12 core limit, in Windows I did this for affinity


In Ubuntu I don't feel the need to change affinity
