Yes, issue has been fixed with a Folding@Home core update ... :)

Update should be automatic.

What are the -ck kernels ? What do they include that others -generic don't ?

Unfortunately, I've never tested bigger chips than 4870/5770 ...

We forgot to mention that these WUs are limited to Windows only.
Administrator
Thanks for sharing your numbers Foldon :top

Tobit> you can still post your GPU temperature with the fan at 100%, it would be useful to those who'll run the card the same way ;)
Administrator
The only workaround I know for the time being is to run the Windows client under Wine ... :(

I'm pretty sure you can easily find some folders with Athlon XP processors ... :whistle

Thanks :top

We chose to not move to PPD/$ discussions in our review for the following reasons :

- hardware costs often fluctuate as new models are lauchned
- energy costs vary across the world
- currency exchange rates always fluctuate

But in all our reviews, the power consumption reported corresponds :
- for GPU, to the power consumption of the GPU only
- for CPU, of the entire system (unfortunately we don't have a way to get only CPU power consumption)

The goal is to give you all the information to calculate the cost of the system (by building your own cart at your favorite shop/online reseller) and the upkeep costs (by using your own energy costs to calculate the usage costs).

PS : but I agree that there is an important information missing from the power consumption charts in this review review : the idle power consumption. I'll try to get it added as soon as possible ...

Did anyone notice that p2682 WUs have some troubles running ?

GPU3 is the code name of the new cores (where fahcore_15 is the first representative) and require a new client (6.32) but the GPU3 client is able to run the GPU2 cores.

It can also run core 11 on both ATI and nVidia and core 14 on nVidia (although I don't think there are active projects with this core at the moment).

Some people have reported that this card produces 9500 PPD ... we'll try to verify this in a review ;)

edit : This score is from a 768 MB version "Superclocked" @ 763 MHz ...
Administrator
That's indeed strange. These are not particularly demanding projects ... so they should do fine on most GPUs.
