Folding with Nvidia cards = WOOOOOOOOO

When I was messing around with multiple cards last year/early this year, my 1070 was getting around 700-800k a day. Now, its about 1.2-1.4 mil. I thought they rescaled the points to be even more unfair to those in the past, but instead its Nvidia who have made the change. CUDA support! The 750Ti in the garage PC was doing about 80-100k a day and when I checked it today, its showing 130k for this project. Can we all have a good laugh about AMD doing something comparable?

No shit eh.... I was around the 80k mark on my 760. I've never tried my 1070 or 1080. Maybe I ought to.

After reading this post I went and checked my 1060 running FAH on the HTPC and can confirm an improvement. Went from ~525K to 790-800K . I have my 1050 tasked with GPUgrid atm and I use the 1070Ti pretty heavily for gaming but if I get spare time I'll unpause FAH on it.

Considering that even AMD is starting to move from OpenCL it only makes sense to support CUDA further.

You guys with 1070s are making my 1080 look bad, I'm only getting 1.4-1.5 mil.

I was wondering why I was seeing such a boost. CUDA explains it. My old jet got a new afterburner!

My 1070Ti is set to 2050 MHz core and 8800 mem, 120% power and +10mv. Good enuff, I haven't tried higher core and mem artifacts @ 9000.

I decided to update the drivers, and noticed my numbers were lower when I checked on progress. Kept them for a couple days and accounting for GTA, it never showed more than 1.2 mil. Put it back to the august 2020 drivers and its sitting at 1.5 mil on this task. Either coincidence, or the new drivers aren't good for folding. Just sharing my observation;)
