    Question Question about folding with my video card

    I'm presently folding with both my PS3 and my QX9650.

    The QX9650 system has an Asus ATI 4870x2 videocard so i would like to know how I can utilize the dual gpu as well as the cpu for folding. Also, if I have to choose only one then I assume the dual gpu videocard would outperform, therefore how would I fold with the videocard?

    Pros cons?

    I have the answers you are looking for but because we differ in our religious and political beliefs, I find that I am unwilling to help you.

    whatever, this is not the place for childish games dude, Think wants help and asks a question that can help others setting up F@H and if you feel the need to mess with him do it in PM.

    F@H is something i support very strongly, as i have been doing this for many years.

    "you are an idiot Mark. Stay out of my business"


    Think, i can't offer any advice but here is a very active forum in F@H

    Folding@home -gpu client comes with the new ATI 8.12 drivers...working as I type

    Do I still run folding@home -cpu client as well as the folding@home -gpu client at the same time?

    Video card - ATI 4870x2
    CPU - QX9650

    ??????????????

    I found the SMP less stable but still worth the effort with Q6600 at 3Ghz and GTX280 for the GPU, GPU was only using about 7 or 8% of one core.

    I have a 260 running with a quad and 3 regular folders and using most of cpu.

    The 3 regular avg around 800-1000 points per day. Would a smp avg more?

    With the Q6600 at 3Ghz and a 2665 WU I averaged 1500 a day, without the GPU the SMP gets about 1920 although there seems to be three types, one comes in lower, one higher and one a hair over 1920. I need to get myself organized and send back my 280 so I can get it back in production.
