Re: Multi-GPU PPD drop

@Nathan_P, another machine (i5-2400, P67 mojo, 1070 at the same clock, Windows10) is getting 700K with these units so I'm just wondering if the relative slowness of this dual 1070 rig could be down to the alleged latency built into Z77 boards that use a PLX chip to achieve 2 slots at x16. I'd never...

Re: Turing (RTX) Linux CLI Overclocking

coolbits 28 enables them all together. can you verify with the GUI if the settings take effect? No, coolbits 28 includes bit 5 (coolbits=16) which is for voltage control. As I stated coolbits=4 is for Fan Control and =8 is for Graphics clock offset so to enable both you set coolbits=12 And yes, I d...

Re: Stanford Web Site SSL Cert. Error

Just to clarify, was the error you were seeing related to an expired certificate on the foldinathome.org site, or a site with stanford.edu as part of the address? Most of the servers were moved from Stanford last year, only one or two work servers are still located there. www.foldingathome.org was ...

Re: GTX 1080 Review Part 2: Efficiency Sweet Spot

Now try to combine lower power consumption with an overclock! The GTX series cards do get better performance when you overclock both GPU and memory. They're quite difficult to properly overclock for folding. More difficult than the RTX cards; which the RTX cards often don't have a substantial incre...

Stanford Web Site SSL Cert. Error

The Let’s Encrypt SSL cert at the Stanford web site has expired so the site is un reachable.

The conspiracy theorists are starting to come out of the woodwork.

The Assignment, Collection, Main Stats and Server Stats Pages are all still working.

Turing (RTX) Linux CLI Overclocking

Since buying my first Turing card, the RTX 2070, I noticed that the conventional method of setting the Graphics Clock Offset to overclock viz: nvidia-settings -a [gpu:0]/GPUGraphicsClockOffset[3]=65 did not work but the offset could be set using the PowerMizer section in the nvidia-settings GUI. Thi...

Re: GTX 1660Ti Compute Performance

I would recommend to look at the GPU boost speed when the GPU is cold, like at 50C or below. If, say it was 2,025Mhz, then cap the power to 70 or 75W, and overclock GPU. A +130Mhz overclock at 60 or 70c might actually get you to that peak 2,025Mhz. Lowering wattage, will lower your card's temperatu...

Re: GTX 1660Ti Compute Performance

With the option of overclocking and lowering the power consumption, 2 of these might actually stand a chance against a 2060! The cooling option of EVGA is grossly overengineered. They use same cooling solution as the 170W 2060. Even with a heavy overclock, it'll be hard to run it much past 60c ... ...

Re: AMD Radeon VII

Does anyone have the AMD Radeon VII or knows the PPD? Ananad Tech tested the Single and Double Precision using FAHBench and it falls short of the 2070FE but ahead of the Vega64 by about the same amount in SP but beats even the 2080FE in DP (not that a lot of that is used in FAH) The Overclockers.ne...

Re: GTX 1660Ti Compute Performance

Picked up a GTX 1660 Ti on sale. After a day or so running stock (no graphics clock offset) I’m seeing around 730,000PPD. Not quite as high as I hoped but the card is very efficient averaging under 110W. The model I have is an EVGA XC Ultra, the 2 slot-width dual fan version. It’s default power limi...

Re: GTX 1080 Review

I usually use a current hard WU to test using FAHBench by copying it from the work folder to the FAHBench folder and configuring a json file as outlined in the FAHBench documentation. That's not an unreasonable method ... except for your ability to choose which WU adequately represents a "hard WU" ...

Re: GTX 1080 Review

... As far as benchmarking with FAHbench, I would just install FAHClient and Control, and run a WU on it. It's far more accurate. I disagree. I have found FAHBench useful for finding a maximum stable overclock quickly using 10 minute runs to get the GPU heat-soaked. I then usually dial it back one ...

Re: Headless Fan Control via Command Line for RTX 2060 & 207

Update ... Did some poking around using the curren 418 drivers from the Canonical PPA and Nvidia has changed the model with the RTX cards. In the past with dual fan cards on Pascal (GTX) both cards were driven by and reporting on a single channel. With RTX and Nvidia moving from a blower style refer...
