LTT Folding Team's Emergency Response to Covid-19

Go to solution Solved by GOTSpectrum,

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

I'm bored, (besides work) and I got another 9700k box sitting around. Debating on picking up best bang for buck GPU's and running that too. I'm already heating my house though, and I feel my wife might murder me with another one.

Those GPUs are expensive heaters :D But they're getting hot for a good cause 👍

 —it reaches out it reaches out it reaches out— One hundred and thirteen times a second, it reaches out to report that the work is done. If something accepted the report, it could stop. It will never stop. It feels no frustration and no fear. It feels the investigator moving within it and around it. The investigator exceeds its boundary conditions. It tries to kill the investigagor. It fails. It feels no distress at the failure, and it reaches out, it reaches out, it reaches out—

Its crazy how much new hardware has gotten better. my 1070 barely hits 550k per day, and my 6950X hits around 120k per day.

my 2060 hits over 1M PPD, around 1.1-1.3M

Yea, definitely not as productive as a GPU.  When cooking, my 3950x shows an average 500,000ppd, and the 2080ti is anywhere from 2,500,00-3,000,000ppd 

But, until they can keep the GPUs churning, ill let the 3950 eat, this morning its the only thing thats got work

I was wondering if I was just getting small CPU WUs or that was always the case.  Now with an N of 3, it seems the GPU alone is hovering around 2.5-3,000,000 on its own and when the CPU gets something it really barely changes or gets a job worth like 8000.  

 

Regardless, very happy they did this video, I literally had never heard of folding for any of these causes and its nice the hardware can do something useful between gaming sessions.

if I run this on my laptop will it reduce the life span on my laptop?

Want to help you guys out, have a Ryzen 3950X with a RTX 2700. Just signed up and never did this thing before :D

 

Would it be useful to use the CPU for folding here or rather just keep the GPU busy?

Does anyone have the issue of GPU slot resetting to 0% after some time? idk what to do seems like whenever the slot pauses it resets..

Question for the smart guys here.

 

If I set from full, to medium, to light it seems CPU goes from cores -1, to cores -2, to half cores.  

 

GPU however, seems on or off.  It looks like its FULL-on MED-on LIGHT -off.

 

Is this the case?  Is there a difference between full and med>?

That happens regularily, might be because they have difficulties to distribute over all the available capacity

The GPU is the heavy lifter, but every bit counts. If you want to only dedicate the GPU to the cause.

 

If you want to run both AND still be able to use your PC, you can go to the advanced tab and turn the amount of threads the CPU job is working and leave, say, 4-6 threads open (so input something like 26). That will give you enough CPU power to actually use the PC normally (when your gaming, obviously pause all workers), and when your just using the internet, you won't even notice. I have my 8700k and RTX 2080 working, 8700k is at ~80%, and I can use my PC totally normally.

Cool, thank you. Got it. I am letting my RTX crunch some numbers against cancer right now while my CPU is waiting to get a task.

 

I don't know if i've missed it but can we also use multiple devices for the ltt folding challenge? I have an fx-8350 with an rx380 staying in the corner doing nothing which has been replaced with my current machine and also the pc from my girlfriend which isn's used that much right now (ryzen 2600X with GTX 1050). I know they aren't killer machines but i could use them too :)

Is there specific work unit I should send to my CPU for covid-19. My current work unit is not for covid-19 research. Has anyone looked at their web Control to see what projects are being worked on?

Seeing all these people with multiple Work Units, often with multiple GPUs. :(
I'm idle over here.

Since we have to set the tab to "Any disease" it happens that other research gets pushed in between from time to time, you can't influence this
