It will be folding@home once I get it up. This thing is a monster ! 3 8 pin power cords, 2 1/2 or even maybe 3 slot size ! Anyway, loading the 470 Nvidia linux drivers now. I will reply back when done, and I get ppd. Its going in my 7401 EPYC rig. Only 4 channel memory until I get some more.

OK, it has the GPU disabled thing. I forget how I fixed this before..

HELP !!

Going to try the below I found:

sudo apt install ocl-icd-libopencl1
sudo apt install ocl-icd-opencl-dev
cd /var/lib/fahclient
sudo wget http://fah-web.stanford.edu/file-releases/public/GPUs.txt

Now restart the FAHClient:
sudo service FAHClient restart

Nope, it said the most recent was installed.. Now what ?

Edit: went into bios and changed PCIE setting from legacy to EFI or something like that. Rebooted and its running. Only 5.7 million ppd ? My 2080TI's do that.F_H_10_4_2021.jpg

Is there a gpu slot? If not, did you try adding a gpu slot manually in FahControl?
I did, but that did not work. I think it was the bios thing above. But 5.8 m ppd ? sucks for $1400, compared to the $1000 I spent on my 2080ti's at almost the same ppd.

Do you think that quad channel memory is slowing it down ? I only have 4 sticks, 64 gig in this box. (24 cores)

See my earlier post here. You should be getting around 6M+ in linux according to folding.lar.systems. At least based on the tracking and sample size shown in the database.

P.S. I'm not 100% sure if LHR does gimp the card a little bit.

LHR ? This should be the regular card. Running 5.78 m in linux.

Edit: BOINC is using 47 cpus. Maybe I will change the 98% to 96% to give it another core ?

The LHR and non LHR PPD for cards that came in both(such as 3080) are nearly identical, so I don't think LHR is affecting Folding@home. I'm getting over 2 million PPD on the new LHR v2 version of a 3060 for example.

LHR is Nvidia's implementation of slowing down mining ("light hash rate"). It does affect algorithms other than Ethereum mining(ergo for example can have issues), so it wouldn't be outside the realm of possibility it would affect other compute programs, but F@H doesn't appear to be be.

See the 3080 Ti stats from the website I mentioned. On average 6M+ PPD is probably the best you can hope for. There are two versions of 2080 Ti. The one with revision A can do 5.4M PPD average.

I was just hoping for more with over 10,000 cuda cores. It used to be that was almost the only factor in determining ppd in F@H, but not anymore.

My 2080TIs do 5.2 to 5.4m. The 3080TI is doing 5.6-5.7m. I have 6 of those, so the ppd should be good, all linux.

FWIW Mark you can probably get at least $500 each for those 2060's you have, so you could get rid of a couple of those and pay for most of the 3080ti purchase without losing any PPD. I would assume a 3080ti is more PPD(and maybe better PPD/watt?) than 2 2060's. Just a thought.

Edit - or maybe some of the 1xxx series cards?

Seems strange that no stats on linux for the 3080 ti from that website I mentioned earlier. Only windows. Why would windows be faster than linux in FAH? Hmm:rolleyes:

Woa... All of a sudden on 18201 unit, I am getting 7.8 m ppd. The 2080TI's have 3 of those going, at 5.2m ppd. This is more like it.

Yes, I know it varies by unit, sometimes a lot. Now I am happy.

Edit: now a full 8 million PPD !!!

Unit 18201 8.2 million ppd !
I wish I could get stuff like this here for acceptable prices. I refuse to shell out these insane amounts of money for a GPU. The cheapest RTX 3080 Ti costs more than 1.500 here. Euro that is, not USD...

Just hoping my GPU will survive until prices drop to more normal ranges :p

I waited a year, and this was from the newegg shuffle, that I have entered every day for a year, to pay $1430 for a GPU, but at least it was almost MSRP. (like $10 over).

Yes, I can hardly wait until things get back to normal, and mining dies.

That's a great feat in these days, almost MSRP... I hope it'll serve you well :)

Yeah, I couldn't have said it any better! :)
