I do have one question. keep in mind I am noob at this.
I am running 5870's in CF (with a bridge)
is it possible to run an instance of folding ontop of the VM one with my CF setup?
I saw something about having to disable CF and take off the bridge...that's not going to be ideal for me...but if things have changed and I am able to do it as is, I'd love to add my GPU power to the team.
Here's a great guide on running -bigadv
I used it and now I'm just about to turn in my first big one for points plus bonus.......opps, gave away part of my ramp strategy.
You can fold with the 5870, I do with mine. Just create a new shortcut, don't use the one the installer creates. Give the .exe admin rights. The target field for my shortcut looks like this:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Folding@home\Folding@home-gpu\Folding@home.exe" -forcegpu ati_r700
You the man! Will this take full advantage of the Crossfire setting?
I see you also have (2) 5870's...or do I need to run two instances of the GPU client with a different target -force for the 2nd GPU?
The only way I can get both of my 5870s folding is to disable crossfire and remove the bridge. Since I bought both cards to game I don't do that and I only run one instance of the gpu client. Maybe the new gpu client will work like the Nvidia and allow crossfire to fold.
very nice! I will switch to this method soon
