I know mark has a few of these cards, LUCKY :)
The ppd with these cards are really all over the place. You can
get 2.4M ppd and then get a bunch of 3M ppd. work so, I don't know.
I have 5 2080TI's. Right now all of them are doing 2.3-2.4m. I have never really seen anything higher than that, and I have no 2070 super cards.

I will be running all out for the 10 day [H] race, but cutting back to the 4.5m that I am put down for if that is acceptable.

My current points are from loading F@H on Linux and making sure they all run the project well. Which I can say they are all up and running with the great help of @biodoc. Thank you sir!!

I need to correct an error, I estimated up to 4.5M, not sure what I was thinking, it looks to be nearly 8.5M....weather dependant...I really can't swing a $500 electric bill next month. Too many Ryzen 3000 series added to the fleet. :D

If I haven't officially announced it yet, I'm in for all of Dec., Folding name "VirtualLarry", and PPD estimate, probably 1.5-2.3M PPD, TBD soon. (Still mining up until the next few days.)

I was planning a major parts swap this evening, but my new 3900X wasn't delivered until well after 8pm.

  • I did manage to pull the 'old' Ryzen 1700 out and replace it with the 3900X.
  • Then I swapped video cards.
  • I pulled the 1080Ti out of Mjolnir, my daily driver, Windows, with 1M ppd at folding
  • And I swapped the 1070 into Mjolnir, while putting the 1080Ti into the 3900X system, Linux
I know from last year, Linux gives an extra 250k points on Linux for the 1080Ti. And we know from past experience a faster CPU helps F@H scores too....but I did not expect an extra 250k ppd from the new CPU. Dang. Impressive! 1080Ti is at 1.5M ppd now. But of course the 1070 has dropped from 700k to 600k now that it is on Windows. Ah well, a 400k net gain! :)

I have never considered my i7-5820K a slow CPU before now. :(

Tony, is the 3900x your first 3rd gen Ryzen ? They really beat everything.... It would only take 3 of them to match my dual 7601's in ppd.

I was supposed to estimate my daily output, but have never run all the stuff I have at once. Adding up theoretical outputs, the GPUs I have should do somewhere around 6 Mppd, but some of them are on slow CPUs.

P.S. If I am not getting the 6M, I'll probably add CPUs until I do, lol.

Edit: I guess I should have added @biodoc to this post!

I put a 1080 from ThunderStrike into a R7-3800X, both Linux, and the speed bump there was only 25k ppd, despite a 1GHz+ cpu boost. It may only really matter (CPU Speed) on the 1080Ti and above.

It would be interesting to know how much the various GPUs are affected by CPU speed, though that would be a monstrous challenge to try to test.

Count me in. All I will have this year is a r9 390, might be able to start up a 7950 later once I finish building a new ryzen build in a week or two. Will be running most of the month, won't be able to crunch when I get all of my parts together for the new build. I'm guessing around 300K ppd, last year with the r9 and the 7950 I did about 400k ppd.

I threw my brand new 3950X and 5700XT at F@H, but it seems like the GPU isn’t supported.

I could swap to my old RX580 but I’m lazy.

I'd put or guess the 5700XT, if it worked, at about 1.3-1.4M ppd, give or take.
RX580- 344,205 ppd.

The 5700 XT is supported. Verify that you have "GPU.txt" file. Check instructions specific to Windows or Linux.
Linux location is: /var/lib/fahclient

Interestingly, I fired up F@H on this PC (newest version of client), and now, the GPU slot that corresponds with my RX 5700, had a result server! So that means, it's not black-listed anymore? But when it tried to fold, it errored out immediately. Consecutively. Now that slot auto-disabled, and shows a Red "Error" for that slot.

So it still doesn't work, but it seems they're trying to make it work now. Newest 19.11.3 drivers. (Are there 19.12 drivers out yet?)

Speaking of drivers (for Windows), Nvidia's latest did not work for me, installed some driver from back in October instead.

EDIT: But then VLarry proves me wrong. :)

Hmm, in Win10, I have the NV DCH driver 441.41 installed, running my GTX 1660ti in F@H OK. I just updated them a day or two ago.
