Passed the 800M mark a couple days ago.



You just passed the 900M mark.
Well looks like I did. Still waiting for the billion mark. Then shortly after, I might make top 100. Still have 4 980 Tis churning away and a 970. Paused the 690 and below for a bit, having some stability issues on that motherboard. Looks like you'll catch up to me before the end of winter.

Wow. I don't pay attention to the numbers much, but I think there is a changing of the guard going on. Without doing anything different (and only one system running), I have moved up about 25 spots in [H]folding in the last couple of months.

Sweet Cheezus, I have been folding forever and only have 59 million. I need to break down and get a 1080 or two.

I'm doing the same DWolvin. I think the 1080 Ti is going to be a beast. I just wish they released it before Christmas so we'd have some sale prices, but I don't think we'll see it until the new year. There's just not as much competition coming from AMD to push them into releasing it. I have seen some projected specs in the wild, though, and it's exciting to look at. I think I'll only be able to get one of them at first, but it should give quite the boost when it happens.

Scrounged a 1080 w/ EK block. It's completely dominating my 2p and overclocked sandy hex... But, MOAR POINTS!

Sad side note, I did inventory and realized that a family member and three friends are fighting that dragon, C.

seriously. F cancer.

DWolvin, sorry to hear that. I only have one family member that ever had that battle. It was enough, though, to open my eyes.

Skillz, gratz on joining the ever-growing club. Just think, in another decade we'll be joining the Trillion club, and we'll be running F@H on our watches. :D

I've been waiting for the same card Christian. Bought one 1080 vanilla just to keep my numbers up after selling some 980 Tis. I should have kept the 980s.

waiting for some funds to bring another 1070 on line, I won't be able to afford a 1080/ti this year:cry:

I was in the same boat. Replaced two 980 Ti's with two 1080s. Didn't see much improvement at all with them. Could be a driver issue which is why I really want to try the new driver on my 1080s, but if something goes wrong I wont be there to fix it.

I'm running 372.90 for my 1080 and it definitely beats my 980 Ti, but I'm not OCing either, and I've got the MSI Gaming X version of the 1080, so it might have some impact. I also game on the 1080, so it's not running 24/7 every day.

Oh, and Skillz, congrats in advance on passing me in a week or two!

A 1080 does beat a 980ti, not by a lot in some projects but I've seen some WU showing 1m PPD and usually north of 800k, my 980ti never got higher than 650k. Where you will see a benefit is in power consumption. Swapping those 2 980's for 1080's has just saved you 140w - that's enough to run a 1070

Yeah I know they're faster. Not doubting that. I just don't think they're fast enough to warrant the price premium. I'm running the EVGA Hybrid versions. Sure they run with a little less power and heat, but i should have just kept the 980 Ti and spent the $800 I spent upgrading them on two more used 980 Tis since they're going for around 360 on ebay right now.

Thanks MGM. That's just assuming I don't have a catastrophic failure while I'm away again. I think last time I got within like 10M nearly all my Biden crashed around the beginning of the year.
