had a 980 gtx laying around to test in the office, so I put it on a tyan 7065 with one e5-2620 v2 installed and only one 8 gig stick of ram
the gtx card alone kicks out over 70,000 points a day. pretty impressive.
when I stuck it on a 7025 mobo (only pci-e 2.0), it accumulated about half that.
so here we can really see the advanced pci-e standard at work.
also, a quadro m4000 that I have on a tyan 7070 with two e5-2620v3's and 64 gigs if installed ram gets about 30000 points a day.
another quadro m4000 sits in a 7025 mobo that is only pci-e 2.0, and it's getting 18000 points a day.
another good note is that these graphics cards absolutely kick the cpu's asses at folding.
the single e5-2620v2 gets about 2000 points a day (a little handcuffed by the single 8 gig stick), the single X5570 (an older socket 1366, 2.93 gig, quad core) cpu in the 7025 mobo gets a little over 5000 points a day, and the dual 2620v3's do 18000.
all these values range up and down slightly, keep in mind, but these are good averages.
lately, the normal graphics card that I use in these machines are quadro k2200's, and those average about 10000 points a day in pci-e 3.0 buses. maybe less. i'll have to add that to this thread when I see one of those in a machine soon.
in a previous thread, I mentioned using some teslas. i'll try to find those numbers and add them here too.
oh yeah, using latest folding client, which leaves one core out of the total for use by folding by default. i.e. the quad core x5570 (8 threads) only puts 7 threads to use in folding.
