It also seems the 980 has a lot more grunt for very little additional power usage. Yeah the price of admission stings, but if you want to compete with Cordis...... :mrgreen:

The system my son has wouldn't fit the longer MSI card - it is using a old SPCR favorite case - an Evercase! Yeah, price was already fairly high, when you have to get a new power supply.

Looks like the new GTX 970 card is doing ~33,000 points every 3 hours. That's about 260,000PPD - holy moly! It took me about 6 years to get my first million points; now it is 1.8M per week!

And if you think how slower than Fermis the Keplers were, when they appeared at first...

Well, just broke a billion points, two 980s and a 980ti keep things humming. Not sure what milestone to look forward to next.

Congrats on that amazing milestone! You are #79 in the entire [email protected] project, which is impressive.

I think we all hope that our contributions to [email protected] make a difference in the research.

Yay, I'm in TOP3 (of SPCR Folding team)!

But probably not for long, Burgalveist is folding like crazy. Maybe if I get a 1080Ti...

We are doing very well as a small team, because we have been persistent. Hardware has exponentially improved - doing 3D calculations on GPU's makes computers about 1,500X more productive.

Oh yeah, get a 1080 ti. I had one machine with a 980, 980 ti and 1080 that did about 1.4 million ppd, replaced the 980 and 980 ti with the 1080 ti, now it's about the same ppd (maybe a little more) for 150 watts less, it's nice. I might stick the 980 ti back in, and see how that goes, but it'll take me back up to 600+ watts for sure. But it's been cooler lately, might be worth a try.
