outputs from some new cards...

Postby bdub » Fri Feb 05, 2016 7:06 am

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.

the tesla thread...
viewtopic.php?f=27&t=121277
looks like I got them up to 25000 a day, each. that was march of '14.
the k20 models.
those were on a 7055 mobo which I think is pci-e 3.0.

anyone have any idea when Stanford's folding project will move to programming compiled to use x64 processors to their full advantage? or am I just not seeing a version which has this?

My Win 7 F@H setup has an EVGA GTX460 with 1 GB of memory. Runs great, average between 3,000 and 4,000 PPD.
The mobo is an Intel D975XBX2KR with a Core 2 Duo at 2.4 GHz and 2 gigs of RAM.
There is still a majority of computers that run only in 32-bit, even for business use. The 64-bit systems may soon be more common.

ok. but I hope they decide to write new code for 64 bit sooner or later, because they are wasting a whole lot of architecture advances on the cpu side.

as far as the 980 gtx test... it's still in the same situation, but it now only puts out half what it did when I first started the test. I guess maybe it finished a work unit quickly that was started by another card, and maybe that set its ppd number up so high. but now it averages 31000 a day, and that's been constant for a week now.

Each WU has its own speed and work time. One would not set a process time for others. The process time depends on what other programming is active, and the complexity of the WU. Could be a second WU process on the GPU, and also could be one or two processes on the CPU. The GPU can only render data, not distribute it. That is the sole realm of the CPU.
If your antivirus does a daily scan, that can add some extra time to finishing a WU.
For some computing designs, the CPU may have multiple cores doing both data routing and data rendering.

I could probably increase my contributions by 40% or more, but the system only has about 15 hours daily run time. It goes to sleep (shut down)when I do.

each work unit has its own point value, yes, but to me that doesn't explain why the program would report the gpu is jamming out 70000 points/day for a while, then suddenly withdraw to half that. unless, it has to do with something like I said, where a unit was almost finished, and because the new installed card finished it in a very short time, the per day point value shot up.
in any case, the 980 gtx is not quite the monster I thought it was (although 30k ppd is nothing to sneeze at). no antivirus on this os besides MSE, btw.

Complexity of the DNA snippet and its final result would be the dominant factor in how long a WU takes to complete.
Some may be simple, with less than 1,000 nuclei, but others may have millions.
