3gb version has its core count cut versus 6gb version. 3g cards are 1060 in name ONLY.

That, I did not know of. I think it is still worth the effort, as you are using less power.

Looked at that Titan XP (2017), It's more than double the performance of the 1060 6GB. Only if I had the money... for the power bill.

No its not worth it for folding a 3gb. The 1050ti is 172k ppd and the 3gb is 210kppd. thats 75w vs 120w. the 1060 3gb is power draw of a 6gb with capability of slightly better than 1050ti.
1050ti-great cost/w/ppd
1060 3gb- turd
1060 6gb-still not a 1070

Using the estimate on the control center is not an accurate reflection of what your GPU performance is for FAH as a whole. It is only a reflection of that specific project. A real reflection of your cards performance comes from letting it run and seeing where your daily average settles at. I would be surprised if anything you have done to tweak out max PPd has really had an effect. the one that matters is using igpu for usage instead of video card. In the end we have the same card and we will be near the same average. The only difference being I pugged my card in and let it run, versus the tinkering you have done.That and the neuter net i hit towards the end of my billing cycle for going over my bandwidth limit.

I just had my billing cycle so my daily average will climb back up to 365k . Yours might hit 375-380 cause i still use my card for movies and you tube vids.

Actual driver series seems to make a difference. Nvidia 375 gives me better ppd.

I cannot remember where, but I did read that the 375 driver is mainstream, and the 381 is something on the lines of beta.

Hello everyone.

I have a spare laptop I'm using for Team Linux Mint, using the google app right now, might install on HD sometime down the road.
I'm not sure how to officially join Mint team, I have it set up folding as anselm1970 for team 76140, it has a place for a passkey???, don't know what that is.

Using Linux Mint KDE Sonya.

Realistic PPD with my setup, GTX 1060 on F@H using the intel GPU for the desktop.

PPD drops below 390K if I use my GPU for other tasks, such as gaming.

Now your powering up the table, what hardware are you folding on!

Hello,

My lap: 6yr old msi, i3-2310 @ 2.10ghz, with a geforce gt 520m 1 gig of ram, runs 24-7.

My desktop: Intel Core i5-2500K, Radeon R7 370. Was using a GTX 970, but it stopped working yesterday.

Still haven't been able to get this AMD card to work in FAH.

Hi everybody,

it has been a bad week here for protein folding. 5 days ago we had a power failure which occurred in the night so the computer was off for 5 hours. Then last night another power failure. Electricity went off at 22-00 and was still off when I went to bed at midnight.

Google are talking about drones to deliver your shopping and we are all being urged to buy electric cars. God knows what will happen when everybody plugs in their car into the charging point and switches on after a days work. The electricity grid does not cope at the moment. A sure recipe for chaos.

It would be nice if the powers to be got the essential things to work well before they strive for more and more.

Best regards Keith.

p.s. I have noticed that PPD has been going down lately with no apparant reason for it.

I shut down the GPU folding In mid July since I am not gonna run AC to cool my house becasue of the PC. I'm still running the CPU client. On Sunday the whole rig goes down since I'm on vacation for two weeks.

In winter I'll catch up with you guys from the "Warmer climates"

And I drive an electric car :)

Hi all,

hard to believe but yet another power failure during the night. Timers say it went off at 05-30, and it came back on at 09-30. Three power failures from 04-08-2017 to 15th of August must be a record.

Best regards Keith
