Agreed. Also, one of the interesting aspects of the TC has been optimizing hardware that is a bit older to maximize PPD output, despite it being a couple generations old. Granted, if we had more interest, we may consider using bigger cards.

That being said @go4life , if you have hardware you're willing to fold with, we can get you assigned to the TC

As of right now, according to the PPD database, the Titan V and 2080 Ti have about 2.2-2.4 million PPD. As compared to the 2080 and Titan X(P)'s which are closer to 1.2-1.5 million PPD.
The barrier to entry for GPU-O is already fairly expensive, and this limit will keep things more balanced until prices come down.

mmonnin I have a feeling the question wasn't under the assumption of knowing which forum it was posted in.

msgclb I was comparing the 1070 Ti and 1660 Ti using these images but I don't know what the PPD would be.

What sort of PPD does the 1660 Ti put out?

Looks to be around the 1070/980Ti range so something like 600k-750k with an OC I would guess.

msgclb I believe the 2070 will have a similar PPD as the 1080 Ti.
I’m also guessing the 1660 Ti will be similar to the 1070 Ti.

It looks good to me!
