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.

Yes, that is the correct window, thank you.

 

From the looks of it, the client itself is configured to use all your cores.

 

What is your setting for the Folding Power? Low, Medium or Full?

(Btw: If you want to also use your GPU to fold, you should replace the "-1" value in your CPU config with 12, so you have 1 core free for the GPU and one for the OS.)

Its on full, atleast when I took the screenshot. 

Thanks for the usage tip.

Unlike mining, Folding at home won't run well over PCIe x1. Not enough bandwidth to feed the card. PCIe 3.0 x8 lanes is recommended.

 

F@H won't run on intel iGPUs, but I believe it is possible to use it on AMD Vega 8/11 GPUs in the Ryzen 2200G/2400G/etc. Not sure how productive it is.

 

Thanks for the help.

 

It's a shame I can't use my riser card, I could have put a few older cards sitting around to some use. I've dug up a couple of old boys (280x/270) and brought them out of retirement, going to pop them in an old 2500k build. 

 

I have a file server which is on 24/7 which uses a x3216 apu, the cpu is able to complete WUs on time, but the R5 carrizo IGPU won't be able to complete WUs before timeout, but can complete before expiration, guess I should stick to only cpu?

 

I was worried whether or not I would be able to achieve 500,000 points which sounded a lot, I realise now after 3 days of folding its not much at all.

It may be close, but trying very hard to hit 500k to qualify before 3.27...

You do realise that only points produced during the event will count towards the requirements right?

My bad. It was my understanding that you had to hit 500,000 to qualify FOR the event?

Minimum Participation Requirements For Prizes

10 Days Active, 500,000 Points

This is our highest yet but should be possible for most people seeing as most modern GPUs and CPUs can hit this. These must be met DURING the event. Points produced before the start date do not count!

Seems like things are looking u on the server side

Hi to everyone, i completed a GPU WU minutes ago, but i didn't receive the bouns points (i have both passkey set and more than 10 WU completed, in fact all of the last WU gave me the bouns points), is it a server side problem?

Here is the incriminated WU and it's points:

And here is the last good one:

Thank you everyone!

Spinning down my two least useful CPU-only rigs.  They aren't producing enough anyways.  Between the two of them vs the two desktop towers (or parts rig for one) the rigs with GPUs produce 20x (incl. CPUs) as much.  Gonna save a bit of power and avoid toasting them.

Guess thats..... the power of the internet and a BIG bunch of nerds/gamers sitting at home and having nothing to do :D

Lets see how far this goes! For me personally the supply of WUs is pretty decent lately and I am finally able to pump up dat PPD!

HELP the LTT F@H TEAM FIGHT COVID-19!! Its easy:
