yes, you're right. But to have some more people using the high performance clients would be even better ;D
Running SMP and GPU on my quad.

This may sound like a silly question, but does any know how long a single WU should take on a Geforce 8300?

The GPU client seems a LOT slower than the SMP client. My GPU client is 35% of its first WU after 11 hours, yet the SMP is at 97%. Should I reduce the SMP to only 3 cores (i.e. leave the fourth for GPU)?

Did you try to disable the CPU affinity lock? Each client won't lock itself to a certain CPU or core and the load could be better balanced then. And try setting the GPU client priority one level higher (i. e. from "idle" to "low"). Currently the GPU client still needs some CPU power (on my quadcore this is 3-4 % while doing SMP simultaneously).

It was already disabled on SMP. I just disabled it on the GPU client.

Adjusted. I'll see how it goes.

I'm already noticing slightly less lag on the PC. It's actually usable with the GPU client running now. Before, I had to pause/quit the GPU when I was using the PC.

Also, my first WU (from SMP) just finished and submitted :)

The GUI lockdown is common when doing computations on the GPU. I had it on my notebook with 8400M too.

Good to hear the GUI lag is normal. When I first started, I was expecting it just to work. Didn't think it'd bog the GPU to the point where it can't even produce video at a decent rate...

I also just installed SMP on another system. A Pentium-D based Dell. :) No GPU client there though (junky Intel video card).

FAH will not run on my work machine (which is already working on three other distributed computing projects, anyway). It will run under Linux, and I will set up a client at home in a few days.

For those interested, I could also start a LearnNavi team for [email protected] (gravity wave detection) or [email protected] (solves engineering problems for the Large Hadron Collider, not a particularly active project at the moment). There is also a ClimatePrediction project that runs long-term climate models.

We have already reached 50k points (50410) and our team rank is now 19093 of 192961. Great work so far, keep it up!

I started run it yesterday but today I lost my work yesterday did and it starts a new one.. and I can't find my name. Do I have to register anything? (I only entered my name and the team no. in the settings AFTER it runs)

You have to register on the [email protected] site in order to get a passkey (have a look here: http://folding.stanford.edu/English/FAQ-passkey) if you haven't already. This is necessary for certains clients. As long as the WU has not completed yet you can change your donor name and team number. But already folded WUs won't be affected by those changes. If you want to change your name you may have to register again but I don't know exactly because I've never done this.

I am thinking of buying some quite powerful dedicated folding machine since a longer period of time but what has prevented me so far from doing so are the high costs (I'm still a student). Not necessarily the costs for energy (ca. 40-50€/month during 24/7 folding) but the costs of the machine itself. And last night I had a dream - just kidding, it was more like an unusual idea: what about sponsorship? If I could find enough people who are willing to make a (one time) donation perhaps I could buy a powerful system that can fold the really big WUs (the ones that are worth 50k-75k points) for the LN.org team.

I'm serious about it if there are enough people who like to help. So I would like to ask what you think about it and if you would contribute to such an idea (non-binding; just for my information). As I said, I have no problem taking care of keeping such system running because it could replace my rather slow systems (which cause comparable power consumption and therefore comparable costs) but I currently can't afford buying it on my own.

Irayo. ;)

(I afraid it will start a new one again tomorrow)









I installed the one for GPU also, but why it keeps on doing nothing? "GPU - [email protected]: Working (0/0)" :P

Which one (GPU2? GPU3 (aka Nvidia Fermi))?
Did you try to enable the option "Disable CPU affinity lock" and set the GPU client's priority to "low" instead of "idle"?

Sometimes the clients just can't get a WU from the assignment servers, I have this from time to time too.

PC1
----
GPU: 1m 30s (while doing SMP, less if GPU only)
CPU (SMP): 12-15 min, depends on what I'm doing simultaneously

PC2
----
2x normal CPU client: ca. 17 min (Intel Atom ;D)

PS3: ca. 7 hours for a whole WU, currently over 1.5 days (some sort of big WU I never had before)
