I got a 980 and need help to get the most from it, it's not a "TI" card.
the big MAC gets around 500,000 out of his 980TI cards so I think that 400,000 should be in easy reach, well..... I just aint getting the job done.
please check that I have my slot configed correctly and any other input is very welcome.

Thanks,
Caddi.

Looks OK. Core_18 wu. Windows OS. Neither helps the ppd. Also, that series has a Lot of ppd variation. How are the core_21 wu doing?

What I also noticed was that the WU or WU's went Up/Down like a mad man,
so from 500000 PPD(2x 970) to like 350000, I am guessing this was the Core17 WU ?!

the only difference is (I think) is that I am (back to) on 2x GTX970 in 1x RIG.. so multiple GPU [email protected]
dang still a lot of FAH testing to do..

I hope you get it sorted mate and thinking with you as I am going to test some more..

I just can't get win7 folding near to the ppd of Linux, 300 some thousand is all I can get out of it, back to Linux and it's right back to about 400 thou.
if you get it worked out let me know.

Nice work, win7 blerg back to Linux :thup:
I am babysitting it now and i don't see that flux(PPD drop) anymore(figures), i even had 600000 PPD for a few hours.

and i need to do some more Linux [email protected] testing because moar PPD(science) = :attn:
on that NOTE: do you guys use a specific NvidiA driver ? older or just the latest ?
I went back to Win7 as i can't(couldn't yet) get more PPD out of Linux then out of Win7 OS..

Happy Folding..

Hey foldinator, slow down some, I'm having a hard time keeping your numbers at bay with my 2 290x's. Stay on Win7 I might be able to keep you at bay there. I need more GPUs

but he gets 500,000 out of them in win 7.
I can only get into the upper 300s with a 980 in win7, that is much more than 20-30% behind him.
I can make 400,000 just chucking the card in a Linux rig.

I'm betting he has some functions turned off in Win7 to get free up whatever processes he can so that the GPUs can fold happily. I know I'm building a dedicated folding/storage rig and I'm gonna be playin with win10 (might as well get used to it I guess) to see if I can get anything more from a 290 (non-x) without having to OC, don't need this room to be a sauna.

Hope you get back up and producing, I'm not looking forward to shutting one of my cards down tonight so I can game, I gotz to do some gamin though.

I'd be willing to bet it's in how he has his client and slots configured.
