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. 

 

 

Weird,

 

Just removed my OLD GPU, restarted now F@H and now it does not find my GPU.

it only wants to run on my CPU!

 

Un-install/re-install, but the same... in Configure when I add a GPU, it blink and nothing?

 

 

Then i reset manually the config.xml and now OK!!!

 

supper weird

Well didn't win anything but placed 184th overall, not bad for my first time folding :) closing in on 27million right now. Due to rise of power bill i had to scale back to just the one intel with dual video cards running 24/7. Power bill sky rocketed last month lol

Yeah I cut back a lot too, about 370k points per day average lately... Although F@H ate my 3 WUs from the 25th, nowhere to be found still... and a big 270K one yesterday was lost to "server didn't like results" :(

Anyway just passed 53M...

My one buddy had to remove all slots, then re-add the GPU and then it took it, after that he added his CPU and things were happy again.

If your running Windows, either restart or kill the FAHClient.exe process (will be listed under Backgroun processes) and then start the Folding@Home app. 

 

I had the same when I updated my version of the FAH client.

I just got some weird bug but i manage to solve it..i think. So i'm gonna post here in case someone has the same problem.

So i fresh install windows 10, let it finish updating and all. Then when i installed the latest fah client, it doesn't show any of my gpu. System info gpu: 0. After tried different drivers and still didn't work, i tried the previous version of it and finally able to add 2 gpus. After that just install the latest one over the previous and it's good to go. 

Here's the link in case anyone need.

Version 7.5.1 link: (deleted)

Please don't link to a private copy of the old client. It is still available at:

All my clients stoped folding after the new client with COVID19 selection was released, I assumed it was some kind of incompatibility.

Are you choosing COVID-19 only? If so it might be that there are insufficient WUs at times.

Hello guys. 

I joined the Folding battle last month Been improving my folding as days passed. 

 

My main folding rig has a GTX1060 and a GTX660, with a i3 2120T (35W). The i3 might be underpowered for moving work from/to the GPU's, CPU is not folding. I'm investigating, have a i5 (77W) laying around I can easily swap. I'm targeting a relatively high PPD with low power usage, Is currently running on a Corsair 500w.

 

I'm also folding in when my Gaming rig idle. (GTX 1080). I'll probable stop folding on it when I receive a a mining 1060 (P106-90 ) is on transit from china.

 

Trying I'm only GPU folding and trying to keep electric bill under control.

Mwahaha!  Hearing about everyone trying to keep their electric bills in check and I'm over here with an electric car I'm not driving anymore -- I just replaced my car charging bill with a "running my PC full bore 24/7" bill.  Shockingly, they are comparable -- about $40 a month for me.  Barely even noticed a change in the bill.  

BTW, GIVE YOUR CPU TO BOINC, everyone!  Your GPU can keep folding unless you want to switch it over to BOINC for the javelin throws, but F@H barely awards anything for CPUs whereas BOINC primarily uses them (and barely uses GPUs).  Team LTT needs you!!!

Odd.  My cpu is getting more action on f@h than my gpu is.

Now that I think about it...I think it has something to do with NVidia cards are compatible with F@H whereas ATI cards are not.  I suspect you have an ATI?

I do, but I’ve had gpu stuff from f@h too.  More gpu than cpu though apparently both.  I haven’t checked it in a few hours.

AMD (ati) NAVI cards (VEGA, RX 5700, RX 5700XT) were not compatible with Folding Core21's however the switch to Core22's added support for these.

ATI/AMD cards are compatable with Folding - but they tend to offer lower performance by quite a bit per watt.

Some of the newest ones are getting closer - but even the current top-of-the-line AMD Vega VII is a thin hair faster to the same on PPD and similar power draw vs my generation-old Nvidia GTX 1080ti cards, while the current NVidia 20xx high end cards are almost twice the PPD/watt.

 

Folding for some reason is more efficient on NVidia cards and has been for several generations now, I'm not sure why.

 

There are projects where AMD cards have been higher to the same performance though - I'm not sure what the current numbers look like, but the MooWrapper BOINC project (Dnet RC-72 underneath) showed a slight advantage to the Vega64 vs the GTX 1080ti on stock settings that grew with tweeking, and even my "reference" model Vega56 is very close when tweeked to my top-end Aorus GTX 1080ti cards when tweeked - both are capable of close to 10 GigaKeys/sec (Vega a bit below, 1080ti a little above).

It successfully conveyed what I was talking about though.  They don’t do f@h but they do do curecoin which isn’t f@h but is used by researchers.  It would still suck up GPU based work if all they can do is GPU based workloads.  Remember the people making the workloads are the researchers and they will pick whatever they get the fastest results from. They’re not locked to F@h.

Curecoin no longer uses SHA256 ASIC - they used to for "20%" of their output to secure their blockchain, but Curecoin 2.0 moved to a different option for that some months back.

 

I've sometimes thought it would be interesting to get a chip designer to come up with a Folding-specific ASIC, but I doubt it would be worth the cost as Folding is a LOT more complicated process than cryptocoin processing is.

Just realised the 'competition' aspect only ran for a couple of weeks. Think i've been folding for close to two months now. May give my system a bit of a rest and save on my power bill.

I still fold but only about 4 hours per day.

 

Just dumped an old core21 WU that was making my GPU unbearably squeal loudly with coil whine and that would have lasted 3 hours...

Yeah I had the same. It was project 16900 that made my GPU sound like a train doing an emergency braking.
