    EVGA Overtake

    Hell yeah! I went 10 months on the 8P without a UPS (or two since it would need two haha). 850W may not be as high as some of these overclocked 6180SE machines, but it still turns the meter!

    Attention GPU Folders: Make sure you are set up for QRB units

    Do you know what the power draw is for this system? The PPD/W for high end laptops may be good.

    Missing Credit with Langouste?

    I would not waste your time with that Folding Forum thread. They kept telling bowlinra to contact the author of langouste, who had responded in thread haha. I am surprised that they don't know tear by now.

    Is this an 8p Opteron 6200s?

    It is Four 2P's, as per the brochure. Each 2P has a Gemini communication ASIC module. It is not the same as HT, it uses MPI between the nodes. It is similar to infiniband but proprietary.Cray favors OpenMP in their brochures for clustering:

    Is this an 8p Opteron 6200s?

    If I am not mistaken, it is 4 x 2P with a proprietary interconnect between them. I have no idea if they function as one 8P or 4 x 2P's. That all depends on what cray did. They also used this on the Cray XK6/XE6. EDIT: Yeah, that is probably an XE6 / XE6m board (or maybe XE7 which is not out...

    4P Socket f (1207) Folding

    If you upgrade to 4x 2.4Ghz hexacores, your PPD on smp will go up to about 70K PPD, but more importantly, you will be able to do 8101 bigadv. Your PPD on 8101 with 4 x 2.4Ghz hexacores would be about 123K PPD. I am basing this off of TPF's from my 8P socket F loaded with 8 x 8431 2.4Ghz...

    Guess what makes this happen: 8102 Min TPF=6m40s, PPD=1009134

    My bad, I did not even look at the core count.

    Guess what makes this happen: 8102 Min TPF=6m40s, PPD=1009134

    A 4P AMD Opteron 6386 SE ES clocked somewhere between 3.4Ghz to 3.7Ghz? That would be my guess. Probably some overclocked 4P of 16 core Piledrivers of some sorts.

    Best CPU value? Folding performance:price

    I recommended a 4P as well Scotty, but he as expressed his need for a machine that pulls a moderate amount of power. It seems as if the 200W-300W zone is what he is shooting for. We want him to get his feet wet, but I do not think his budget will allow a full on 4P system. I also do not want to...

    News from PG re GPU benchmarking

    It would be nice to get one of these work units captured. Please send it to Tear if you happen to get one! We need to benchmark these units in a controlled environment, and try to see how they scale across different hardware.

    So is a 6m50s TPF (PPD=972k) on 8102 any good? :)

    It could possibly lower performance. 4 sticks is enough to max the memory controller. Going to 8 will force the memory controller to switch between dimms if the data is stored across more than 4 dimms per controller. This is theory though. If there is a reduction in performance it would most...

    Best CPU value? Folding performance:price

    You will have a much harder time hitting your goals if you go retail. A used Asus Z8NA-D6C 2P 1366 can be had for $140 (what I got it for last year). Nathan pointed out the L5640's which are $300-$350 per CPU on ebay. that is about $840 for motherboard + CPU's add in $50 ish for ram $45 for heat...

    Which is why I stated that for power consumption like that, the chips would have to be at stock clocks.

    Project Piledriver 64

    Most of the retail 6180's in a GL board will do 2.8+. There are very few AMD G34 systems out there with ES chips. So I was working on the assumption of no voltage increase.

    Project Piledriver 64

    I did say overclocked, and stated 3Ghz. If you have a 550-650W 48 core machine at 3Ghz I would love you know what magic is in play! I know a 2P at 3Ghz can be in that range. Stock clocks will take much less.

    it might be time to consider SB-E

    No worries sir! I am just trying to get the most output from the lest money possible. The more output we can get online the more science that can get done! The 4P 2011 is prohibitively expensive for most folders so it does not get recommended. Since for $8000 you could build 3-4 AMD 4P's for...

    Best CPU value? Folding performance:price

    I feel your pain Nathan! That does sound tasty! If the CPU's could be found cheaply a dual L5640 machine would probably be his best bet in an ASUS Z8NA-D6C. I don't know the pricing as of late, but last year I picked up a Z8NA-D6C for around $140 used.

    Project Piledriver 64

    A heavily overclock Magny-Cours machine running around 3Ghz on 48 cores can pull north of 1000W at the wall :P I think stock clocked systems can hit in the 550W range, but I have not seen non-overclocked 4P's in a while lol.

    it might be time to consider SB-E

    It looks as if there is a steep price jump from the 2650/2660 (around $350-$400 per CPU) to the 2670/2680/2687W range ($650-$720 per CPU). I did not see any QA92's, but the QA91's are going for $725-$785 2($350) + $350 for motherboard would get you 157K PPD ($1050) An SR2 with dual hexen a...

    Best CPU value? Folding performance:price

    A used 2P 1366 would be a decent folding rig for that price. If you manage to pick up an SR2 with hexacore processors in it, there would not be much upgrade room, but it will put out a decent amount of points. The problem is 2P 2011 is the current Intel 2P platform, and the price is a bit high...

    The i3 rig is a good idea! less power, and cheaper, and will still get the job done! My IRC/forum laptop I am on now is still a core 2 duo T5600 at 1.83Ghz and 1Gb of ram lol. I could begin to suggest options if I knew what power envelope you wish to hit. Also, you said you would like to keep...

    So about 157K PPD Looks like 4P 6128 wins on the PPD/$ still, but it will pull more power It is 157K PPD for 280W, which is still pretty good, 560PPD/W. Thermodynamics is thermodynamics, I have a 2P 1366 rig that pulls 315W. With good coolers and adequate air flow you should be fine. It does...

    Best CPU value? Folding performance:price

    I would recommend the i5 system for the daily driver, and another system dedicated to folding. A 3930K would produce more points than two i5's just because of the bonus points curve. The reason I recommend two systems is because even light use will drop your points a fair amount because of the...

    So is a 6m50s TPF (PPD=972k) on 8102 any good? :)

    Oh yeah! That will be fine. You should not have any problems with memory if 4 slots per CPU are occupied.
