I pulled the trigger on a 470 after some research into the differences between the 480 and 470. I couldnt find any hard data on what kinda PPD output i would see for the 470, some napkin math but no hard numbers. Because of this i wanted to post a new thread with some hard PPD numbers for people to compare for themselves.
Nothing fancy just some data points. I havent tried to overclock the card ill just keep it stock for now.

So I love my new 470 it's fantastic for gaming and does a fairly respectable job folding. The only thing that annoys me is a known issue of the 4xx series. The video output goes black and the computer becomes unresponsive and it can only be fixed with a hard reset and then I let it boot up (still no video!) And shut it down from within windows. When it boots up its fine. Normally not a problem if I'm gaming but not cool when I leave it for a couple days and I don't notice right away. Tanks my ppd avg and let's silver get closer. I gotta find a fix. Anyone with similar cards have the same problem?

Are you sure that PPD or Credit per WU?

It's pretty close usually within 1k or so points of the est points.

Thank you for the update. I hope that you are able to find a solution to that very big problem. You'd think that AMD would have that resolved already.

try going back into windows power options and select performance, turn off computer, never, turn off monitor, never, should cure it.

I've been considering a 470 or 480 for folding. I'm very tempted to upgrade my 7750 with one of these cards!

You would be very pleased. It's a great 1080p card. It will run far cry 4 on ultra with some AA turned on. And my skyrim is finally on ultra with everything maxed out. :thup:

I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong as my RX480 is showing a bit more than 100k ppd.

You probably need to add flags to your folding slot. I'll look for them and post back shortly.

Above is the link from Stanford about flags and how to put them in. It's a quick read. Some of these will really up your production with that card.

Thanks. I was using passkey on other rig but forgot to add it on current one. I'm not folding 24/7 but sometimes pc has nothing to do and some WU can finish quick on gpu so I leave folding on.
On GTX1070 I get about 110k ppd what is also weirdly low. This one runs at work for most of the time.
Right now I have weird issue as [email protected] Control has crashed and I can't repair it even with full reinstall of [email protected] All is working but I can't enter settings.

edit:
added passkey to GTX1070 rig and it's showing 500k ppd right now in web control :)

Still not enough Subpar....!
Though, I'll overtake you in 2.7 years so you have time :D

~230K PPD isn't bad at all for a 470. Cheaper than the 1070 I want.

Yeah I'm lagging behind but we'll see what happens I'm seeing 970s on the local classifieds for 200ish so maybe I'll swap out my 270 :D

970s do a little over 300K ppd for me. 1070s do about 600K ppd for me.

My 1070 can make 500k ppd at stock and 600k ppd oc ( 1550-1650MHz vs 1850-1950MHz core ). Don't remember what was on RX480.
