This jump in points is... something (For people who have Nvidia cards. Not me who only has 5700 XTs).

I thought something good was going to come out of Nvidia getting on board with F@H, but I thought it would just be chucking a supercomputer or two at it.

This is... awesome. (For people who have Nvidia cards. Not me who only has 5700 XTs)

Keep a log of your current and future output compared to previous output perhaps. I鈥檓 interested to see if it shows a downward trend now there鈥檚 an official GPU partner for FAH that isn鈥檛 AMD

had mine set to 80% it doesn't seem to work with the new cuda WU ?

You mean it's not having any effect?

I dunno if im on this cuda wu your talking about, but聽dropping my nvidia cards down to 80% does very little, the core and voltage聽drop but not much.

The problem I was having just needed a reboot to fix everything is back to normal now. The idea behind setting the power limit to 80% is that you聽 get a better PPD/Kwh. With a 80% power limit you lower the power draw on the card but it has no noticiable inpact on PPD.

Yes, the amount of cuda cores has聽the greatest impact聽on performance, slightly聽lowered clock speeds聽have much less impact.

I overclock and/or undervolt to achieve the highest clocks and then play with the power limit.

I also prefer to use the power limit to control temperatures, I have tried setting聽a temperature target, but聽found that it often doesn't work, or that it causes clock speeds to jump drastically and erratically.

WARNING TO NOOBS!
After the recent Nvidia driver update (456.55), that included changes to how F@H uses Nvidia CUDA cores, and a previous Widows update, Windows Task Manager no longer shows any GPU activity from any GPU resource related to F@H. It shows the GPU Temps raising but gives no indication as to why. Use HWiNFO64 or some other hardware monitor to get F@H GPU usage info. image.thumb.png.b8a2e17d0e99688dbc6d806d26bd79e8.png

Change video encode to cuda and it will show you.

Which update ?

Not sure when, which update, but I looked online and there have been other complaints dating back to February 2020. image.png.ca56078aa83ba26b81b6f586f6a2ecdf.png

Congrats to those that are benefiting from CUDA and congrats to the science!聽 While I weep for my RX5700, I'm still grateful for its service.聽 I'm just hoping that by the time I'll be able to get my hands on a 3080 (probably the beginning of next year), I too can join the good-a CUDA comput-a club.

You are right it should be about the science and this is good for the science but I am far more invested聽in the science than most. If I could I'd send you some of my extra points to keep you folding with your RX5700.

Oh, don't you worry.聽 This puppy will keep chugging along even if I were to get 2 3080's.聽 I have a nice spot on my local NAS (repurposed from my previous desktop) that would fit beautifully.

Folks - do we know if these cuda WU鈥檚 still suffer from the nvidia driver overhead? I ideally want to run cpu folding too but all the times I鈥檝e tried on my nvidia systems the GPU PPD drop has been more than I鈥檝e gained from the cpu folding

Looking at my CPU usage it looks like each Nvidia card still needs 1 thread.

Same version same build same OS I don't know why yours is different. I only update to 2004 last week so maybe that has someting to do with it.

Did you update the nvidia driver? CUDA's also gone here.

This with it showing cuda usage. Dumb question has everyone done a reboot since updating everything ? I had聽 somne wierd things going on until I did a reboot.

EDITED to add. both my folding systems are working the same both show Cuda.

I'm on the driver before yesterday's. Need to finish current WU before updating. Maybe they screwed up on the previous one and fixed it yesterday.
