GPU Folding with Mac & Nvidia 8800 GT?

Post by Grandpa » Wed Aug 20, 2008 11:15 am

Now that Nvidia Cuda 2.0 is available, is it possible to use a 8800 GT in a MacPro for folding?

Welcome to the forums!

No - the client will need to be rebuilt for that to happen, and the Pande Group would like to finish the Windows GPU client before that happens (it is technically out of beta, but the viewer does not work and this may also require a core update to be complete.) However they have stated that they would like to build a linux client ASAP after the Windows client is finished so I would imagine that Mac OS X would get one then (due to similarities with linux), if they can code it.
Folding whatever I'm sent since March 2006 :) Beta testing since October 2006. Administrator since August 2009.
