    How many of you will be using the new Nvidia client when it hits? I know I will, but I have also been folding with a 3870 for some time now. Tell me what you think!


    Some info on the new client here.

    my 8800gtx running GPU2 with 612/1512/945 clocks - 4980ppd! (vista 64bit and 177.35 drivers)

    finishing WU's in about 28min

    looks like the G92 8800gts 512mb can hit around 5800ppd with some shader OC.


    Post up numbers if ya got 'em!

    Although i don't fold for DH, I've been using the GPU client for a few days. Getting ~ 2800 PPD with the client alone with a stock 8800GT.

    I'm using a 9600GT - folding for the ATI team :p Just started it today so don't have many numbers but it's a hell of a lot quicker than the cpu one. Does 1% in about 30 seconds rather than 30 minutes.

    RIGHT ON! Yeah its seems the nvidia client is not CPU limited in the least. I like that since it gives you a lot more options for a cheap folding farm.

    I am an Ati/AMD fan so you can guess my answer :)
    I have an Ati1800GTO and the last project i got was so big that i want about 3800 years(!) to finish it! They are joking that sent me such project, right?

    So is mine now, ~ 5200PPD. The new WU I am getting seems to do a lot better than the smaller 98 point one previously.
