Who here is still actively folding and how often and with what specs?

Recommended Posts

Im sure the Titan x will get around max 450k points. Maybe 500k points... Never have i heard in folding that a single gpu had almost 900k points

Twin Titan X

So a single Titan X will indeed do 450k max.

Huh. So I guess it's Boinc time for you?

Imagine fodling, but with he ability to actually choose what research you do.

  1. What to help medice?
  2. Prefer aiding mathematics?
  3. Maybe you are into researching meteorite's trajectories?
  4. Or even perhaps you are into looking for extra terrestrial life by analyzing radio waves?

To that, I can only say one thing: BOINC has it all, and MUCH more.

BOINC is a project manager. It allows the volunteer to choose what project they wish to donate to - Einstein@home, SETI@home, POEM@home, etc. However, BOINC is harder to configure compared to Folding@home if you really want to fine tune it.

Typically in folding we definitely see a downturn as the summer months come into play here in North America. We do see some uptake from say our friends in Australia, but not usually enough to offset the loss. As well, I think their "winters" are still pretty mild compared to the winters some of has, which again, limits Folding output.

 

Summer time hits, it is an expected thing. Just as many online games and leagues see their active members drop as well. As fall and then winter kick in, we should see a lot of people picking it back up.

And that's what makes it fun.....

I am, my GTX 970 isn't being used for folding anymore because it screams (expensive card, shit quality components), but my i5 4440 is racking up the WU (16GB RAM BTW):

Folding@home is a project that was formed and is maintained by Stanford University. It attempts to simulate protein folding(self-assembling) to figure why certain diseases and cancers occur(including, but not limited to, Alzheimers) and then attempt to create a cure. Because protein folding occurs very quickly in the body, simulating the protein folding in computers takes a long time and thus requires a lot of processing power in order to get anything done....This is just a quick run-down of what it is and each task you are running will have its own project codename that you can click on to gain more information. In addition, you can choose if you want to help research a certain disease or if you're okay with donating to any disease research.

I quit folding for now because at 300W it would add up to 60€/month in electricity... :(

You could have just had your rig folding during off peak times, or during the day on solar (if you have it that is).

I fold during my power company's off-peak hours (9 p.m. to 6 a.m. and all day Sunday and holidays).

I use my two GTX 780s that can do 375k PPD(If I only get core 0x18) but I average about 115k PPD.

I just started folding a few days ago. I use my i7-3770S and my GTX 980 to fold 24/7 whenever I'm not gaming on it. When using core 0x17 I get ~310,000 PPD, on core 0x15 it's more around 60-80k PPD (I like core 0x17). My CPU gets about 8K a day.

You are basically helping scientists do science by running a program on your

pc that uses your hardware to compute stuff. What do you gain? knowing that 

you are contributing to a good cause and some arbitrary points for leaderboards.

It can, not many people are folding, but there are a fair few 970's folding for LTT.
