sweet! you comp was down, and i caught up but had to iron some bugs out along the way... even just this night... but now i am ready... lets see the production crank out!

your folding at 3.8 right? I am at 4.0, but i am rocking the SMP 7 flag now for my GPU production for my x2 gtx285's running... problems went away now i guess... heck, my GPU production went up, and my PPD is almost the same as -smp 8. who knows... need someone to base my performance off of, and your it!! lol! hope i can hold up

I believe you'd make more ppd if you removed the affinity lock from the gpus and forced them to run on all cores with the nVidia environment variable NV_FAH_CPU_AFFINITY with the value set at 15. THat will spread out the gpus across all cpu cores so that they don't slow one or two a2 core processes and you won't have to dedicate a core to the gpus. The i7 has 4 Floating Point Units that both the SMP client and the gpu client have to use and thus compete for. Running with -smp 7 doesn't change that. It does change how the processes are scheduled.

have been running that way for a bit

and forced them to run on all cores with the nVidia environment variable NV_FAH_CPU_AFFINITY with the value set at 15.

What exactly does that mean? is NV_FAH_CPU_AFFINITY added to the config file? or i gotta put that in somewhere else? What is the "15" value, or where?


Hardly a week of folding, and i have netted 100k points and 911th place on the team! wow... Bigadv is nice... now, just need to fine tune it a little more

In control Panel, System, Advanced, Environment Variables select New on System Variables, and add the variable NV_FAH_CPU_AFFINITY and set the value to 15.

This works for Vista, and I believe XP. Win 7 should have the same drill-down.

Hope that helps!

that's not fair

You have 2 285's

I'm gong to bump back up to 4.0-4.1 since I'm back at home and see how smooth it goes.

I need to figure out if I can do some big's or not.

Right now I'm going to bed I'm pooped

You have the updated drivers?

GPU clocks aren't too high are they?

Are you sure you're stable?

If Chas or Adak sees this they might have some insight.

Goodluck and yes I'm happily folding again :D My issue was my pc locked up on a scan/update at the sametime while folding lol WTF....

Ok going to bed Vegas to Ohio has my internal ticker all jacked up :D

Later and goodluck with the hardware issues brotha.

If the two of you would stop your squabbling, you might be able to concentrate long enough to catch up to me. :D
