Folding@Home GPU performance

Go to solution Solved by jiyeon,

Check for 'compute_0' and make sure that's pegging at max. @King Poet taught me that this is how you know a GPU is folding.

Hi, does any of you guys in here know if its normal for Folding@Home to only use a small fraction of the available GPU power when set to Full folding power? i find it a bit odd.

The GPU im using is the GTX 980 ti.

I think you can change it in pref? or web site on how much GPU % you want it to use but I could be wrong. Been a minute since I used folding@home. Currently I am actually helping out Seti@home lol. Gotta find those aliens.

By default, it should be using 100% of the GPU on full. Maybe try deleting the GPU slot and then add it back in?

Don't use the task manager to check your gpu's performance, it's wrong, Use Cpu-z or something else.

If that's the case, then I'm also experiencing that. :(

Oh, nevermind then. I was looking at my openhardwaremonitor gadget, not the task manager. I guess it's normal then.

Task manager does not report GPU usage correctly. Better off using some other kind of hardware monitoring software
