I have 8800GS cards, the 511 pointers take close to 4 hours to complete. We're talking like 3000 PPD, I used to get 4800.

Yes it's true you should use identical GPUs in the same box, they do not have to be from the same company.

I found one of the new GREEN 9600GT cards, it folds pretty cheap, but the card is at NewEgg and like $140. Forget that. 'Egg also has an Apollo 9600GT with only 256MB of memory, this card may also be good for PPW.

^ I still find my 9600GSO alot cheaper. Got it for $50 USD after MIR.

My 9600GSO does 3000-4800PPD depending on the WU...

I'd love to find a good one for that kind of money. If anything the price on the good ones is starting to rise. I don't want to pay over $100 for one of these cards. And 9600GTs are no bargain lately either.

Case in point, I had two 9800GT's doing 32-3500ppd on the 511's. I replace the slower of the two 9800GT's with the GTX+ and suddenly the GT that was doing 3500 drops to 2200. I check on folding forum and find out after the fact that it's a known problem. :(


Just to update this, I reverted back to version 178.24 of the drivers, and although they soak up CPU cycles, they now permit both cards to run at nearly full speed. Since I stopped doing CPU folding on this box anyway, the CPU usage isn't a big deal. It draws more power, yes, but still has a net gain in PPD/watt.

Heh. The GTX is cruising at 5580 PPD on a 511 point WU as we speak :D


If I knew for a fact that the one I'd buy is a 55nm one I'd buy it ASAP.

Palit is making many 55nm cards, but they are not labeled. Idiots!

You can find a GTX 260/ 216 55nm pretty easily, and many of themare labelled. the GTX285 is,well, a different model...

...or are you referring to the 9800GTX? All of the 9800GTX+ cards are 55nm. Those without the "+" are 65nm.

This page would suggest otherwise.

hm. all the other places I've been to suggest the "+" is the designation for the smaller process (and accompanying higher clocks). It's what makes the plus a plus.

WP, you're probably right, the argument above has been going on a while.

I did note before than it seemed that the GTX+ used less power overall, but just barely.

Yup. Same with GTX 260 55nm and GTX285. A half-node transition usually doesn't net much in terms of either performance or power consumption gains. That's one reason I bought a GTX280 for ~$300 rather than a GTX285 for $385; the advantages for the new part simply weren't worth the $ nor the added hassle of waiting for new H2o parts to become available.

Another problem is that xbitlabs shows the 9800GTX+ using appx 76 watts while legoman666 on his spreadsheet shows it using 117 watts. Thats a pretty big difference.

Added - And more confusion:

DUH!
