wow that video Proves intel sucks lol...GO TEAM AMD Now my question is why no AMD Graphics on that computer?

 

I legit have no idea of AMD's mobile GPU situation, or if they have one.  I was actually looking at lappy's recently (even though I really hate doing anything on them) and going down the rabbit hole of AMD-CPU laptops and the options looks awesome; they have clearly stolen intel's lunch.  I just dont trust them enough with my GPU to make the leap on that front though!

I seem to have transitioned from big chonky WU's that are worth about 1/3 to even bigger chonky WU's that are worth seemingly their normal value.  Like big ass mofos!  Itll finish sometime in the next...3 hours?!

RTX 2060 vs RX 5600 XT ?

 

For folding and about the same price.

As much as I love my team red, 2060 likely outperforms it.  The 5700XT only really ties the 2070, so...


R5 3600, 5700 XT, AX370 K7...  and that's plenty for me.  If you ignore the masses of other parts I occasionally put together and laugh about.

My 2060 seems happy on this one!

Success! Got the old Lenovo T500 up and folding. I had to reinstall Linux Mint; not sure why it wouldn't work the first time because this time it worked no problem. I'm up to six old machines folding 24h a day.

I am up to 4. I could run this on my server but the Mfer gets loud and it's in the family room. I do have an old Lenovo workstation I could fire up but it might be pointless as it only has a i5 3470

All my machines are pretty old. A lot of people are getting more points in a day than I get in a week. But every little bit helps.

I've been tempted. I end up spending a lot of time anyway working through a lot of weird issues trying to get AMD cards going on Linux with the amdgpu-pro drivers.

Yeah I wanted to try my lowly R5 2500U on Linux as I'm curious if it would push the performance up just enough to be worth using the GPU, on Windows the one WU I tried went an hour over the timeout which sucked.   I mean I get its insanely weak, but if I could just get it to complete WUs in under 24 hours it would at least count. ;)  Besides, its worth just seeing how different it performs to Windows even if it ends up still be unusable.

Its bad enough with NVIDIA, it seems I can either get OpenCL and CUDA working, or the 32bit libraries required to run Steam, not both.  But that using pre-packaged drivers for you I guess.


Router: i5-7200U appliance running pfSense.

After one week of folding with 5 machines going 24h a day, I'm at 280,342 points.

Better than not even trying. Or better yet it's better than those who work on it for a day and give up.

Does the "download ahead of finish" thing only download ahead for one slot?  I have a GPU unit ready for # crunching but the CPU doesn't and they'll finish about the same time.

EDIT: there it went.  my blind ass just missed the % done.  all good.

At least your Xeons have GPUs attached. My E5-2450 v2s don't.

Pretty sure your i3/i5 are better than my E5-1620 and Phenom 1100T.  What PPDs do they make?

I've got an old ass 2006-ish Dell Inspiron with a Centrino CPU crunching on WUs that take about 3 days a pop.  Also have a 2013-ish iMac that MIGHT finish one WU in 24 hours.  Even though my main rig can pump out a few WUs a day, these other two old and busteds are still churning on WUs... solving problems, contributing to the research, and - yeah, gettin' me points.  But, each CPU or GPU cycle is one cycle closer to stomping out diseases.  Don't let it get to you.  Everything helps!  🙂

all my quad core systems with good graphics will be getting the cpu a break for now (my 7775 will be getting a 50% reduction in cpu usage) as it appears haveing an idle or not busy ram and cpu makes the vcard do better...at least with team red. if my PPD drops any thing worth writing home about i may revise my statement. lol

Gonna give my gaming rig a break from folding and actually game on it.

I have a Lenovo S30 box laying around that just needs RAM, it's got a Quadro K600 & E5-1620.  I'm not likely to use it any time soon.

 

But I don't know how I'd get it to Canada, lol.

What ram do you need? I have a bit laying round.
