New GPU client for ATI HD2xxx/HD3xxx cards:
Folding Forum • View topic - GPU2 open beta
3870 folding at 1143ppd on my 3.1ghz Athlon 64 single core server. (running vista)
Only using 55% of the card! Need a fast FAST proc to feed these cards!
It seems that the first gen GPU client is dropped ... :sigh:
Yes, it's sad, but if this is true
...I think it's OK to move forward.
yeah but I since I have X1950 Pro and the gen 2 client won't support it
We're on the same boat, I have X1950GT. And I won't waste any more money for my current AGP system just because of FAH.
heh, I think that my next card in from team green so hope they make the FAH client work with those too
Dont hold your breath...
I don't .... Well you have some inside info about nvidia support for FAH?
Nvidia has CUDA. And they want everything to be ported to CUDA to run on their stream platform. F@H says they want to keep their clients as diversified as possible, and by porting a client to CUDA they are saying it would be a Nvidia ONLY client.
WELL DUH! The client they have now is ATI/AMD only! The only reason they are willing to continue with the ATI card clients is because of the help they get from the Catalyst team. Nvidia figures they have done their part by supplying CUDA.
SO! in short... its a stalemate between F@H and Nvidia.
(which is all very interesting seeing how the GPU client was originally intended for the nvidia GPU)...
So until a 3rd party gets their hands on some GPU source code and gets handy with CUDA... (and has nvidia's driver knowledge in their back pocket) ... We arent going to see a Nvidia F@H Client any time soon.
interesting, downloading now
