Now that the v7 client is out to open beta, you probably have some questions, remarks, bugs to report or you're just willing to chat about it ... ;)

This thread is all yours !

Still waiting for the FahCore_16 WUs for AMD cards though. I've read that by enabling the '-beta' flag you can get some early betas.
Any success with v7 -bigadv yet?

Foldon, Core_16 has now been released to advmethods. Change the client-type from beta back to advanced.

Note there are some rough edges too it - like watching Flash can crash the system .....

Haitch, Thanks! I might check it out later, but I would certainly miss -bigadv folding.

Is there any chance of running v6 -bigadv and v7 (GPU) simultaneously?

The two clients are completely separate, so no problem mixing and matching.

Note that the ATI units at the moment are small test WU's, this results in high cpu use, and relatively low ppd, although better than the old core.

For some 2 weeks now I have mixed the clients. v6 runs -bigadv folding (-smp 7 or -smp 11) while I'm using v7 for GPU-folding.
Some results: (I haven't encountered any issues yet.)
HD 5870 (SC), P11294, <8600 PPD
HD 6870 (SC), P11294, <7300 PPD

Do the new clients NVIDIA cores still support FAH_GPU_IDLE ?

I don't think so ...

There's a feature to control temperature in core 21, but I don't how it works or if it has even been functional, only that is prints the following message at core startup :

Quotation:
Temperature control disabled. Requirements: single Nvidia GPU, tmax must be < 110 and twait >= 900
