LTT Folding Team's Emergency Response to Covid-19

This event has ended and I recommend you guys head over to the Folding Community Board for any general folding conversation.

So I started folding yesterday and I found my old r9 380 GPU, would it work for folding if I connected it to my current system or would it need tinkering to make it work? Its ryzen 5 3600, rx 5700, RM650X, x570 gaming plus MB, and 16Gb ram.

It should work out of the box. And every bit helps.

Boo comp started and my WU collection has gone stale :(

Def try the pause and unpause a couple times.  My 2080ti seems to keep busy, but my 2070 needs constant prodding it seems.  If im not pausing and unpausing it just stops getting any WU

My less powerful PC is getting all of the work while my other PC is just sitting waiting for work.

yeap next-unit-percentage 100.

 

Any recommended down clocks ? Default is 1360mhz core and 2000mhz memory.  Or just reduce power limit?

You can leave that flag there, it won't affect your WUs, but it's good for PPD. However, try avoiding client-type Advanced flag while you are having problems.

 

My RX 580 worked perfectly with 1350 CC and 2050 MC, but if you are having problems with current setup, try going for 1300 CC and 1900 MC and slowly raise CC first and then MC (up to 2050) every few WUs, once you hit failed WU, go back to what was stable and then one more step back just to be sure.

 

If I find screenshots of exact settings from 6 months ago, I'll share them with you.

It's strange, my PC with the less powerful GPU is getting all of the GPU WU's while my other PC seems to only be getting CPU WU's...tried pausing and restarting several times.

My Vega 56 seems to be getting more WU than my 5700xt. They might prioritize certain architectures, or it might just be down to luck of the draw.

You're helping just by contributing capacity, even if they don't saturate it. Just means the WU they do push out get started immediately.

Dont know if this is relevant, but they have a potential vaccine for the virus now, they just need time for testing and approval.

I look at everything from a folding point of view, nothing offensive there to me... well other than you could get more folding power with 2060 cards for the same price but still...

how?
