I wonder the power draw at full load, and what PPD that represents.

I don't think the nanoseconds per day benchmark is accurate for extrapolating PPD, considering that Vega 56 is ahead of Vega 64. That 1070 Ti being ahead of the 1080 is also out of whack.

The relative positioning of the cards in that chart makes the data suspect.

Some rough back-of-the-napkin calculation based on GFLOPS and known optimistic kPPD on Linux for RTX series cards (oversimplification, uses fuzzy numbers for ERB)
1546923544605.png

I would think somewhere in the ballpark of around 700K-800K PPD on Linux. Which still makes a $200 used GTX 1070 the best bang for the buck. Though if it actually hits 800K PPD on the 2060 it could be a good deal if prices ever dip to $300 or below.

The story of the RTX series cards minus the RTX 2080 Ti - nVidia's competition is itself in the Pascal series cards.

Greetings,

my Gainward RTX 2060 performs on 133 score with 68% gpu core usage. (single prec)
Power consumption idle is 41 watt (whole pc), during test 180 watt (whole pc).
During test preparation its 91 watt.

GPU core clock 2055Mhz, vram clock 7700 Mhz

FAH Points per day are around 972K

Why is the 1070ti higher then the 1080 ?
Iam looking for a couple RTX and these look nice.

@Sima86 Welcome to the Distributed Computing sub-Forum! Thanks so much for the info, and we hope you will stick around! :)
Thank you.

Why is the 1070ti higher then the 1080 ?

In Reality 1080 is only 6% better overall (game and workload benchmark)
Some GPU operations are equaly fast like calc of dynamic lighting and motion rendering.

infact 1070Ti architecture is slightly different to 1070 and 1080, because its another gpu chip/die. (GP104-200-A1 vs GP104-300-A1 )

Quick and dirty arithmetic using the Folding PPD database and going prices on ebay (used, but not special deals) shows this:

GTX 1070, 3105 ppd/$
GTX 1070ti, 3070 ppd/$
GTX 1060 6GB, 2511 ppd/$
RTX 2060, 2294 ppd/$

There is only one sample of the 2060 in the datebase, so that result in particular is probably off.

I think I would go for the 1070ti, since it's not far behind in ppd/$ but will probably be more power efficient per point.

Well, its trying to say that a 1070ti does more points than a 2060, and I don't think that right. Mine does 800-875k. I could fire up the dual 1070ti box and tell you, but its not cold enough.

Oh, and that 800-875k number is windows, I am sure linux would be higher. They had the cheapest I could find on ebay (buy it now) for $285, and I got my 2060 for $350, and I think it draws less power also.

875K at $349 would be 2507 ppd/$, about level with the 1060 but obviously way more points per watt. The 2060 would have to do 1M ppd to be at the ppd/$ of a used 1070.

Under linux, it could very well do that.

Under windows my 1070 is going less than 600k ppd.

I could edit or delete what I posted, if it's so inaccurate as to be of no use. There should be some kind of rational decision making process when choosing a GPU, I'd be interested in a more accurate method if there is one. Expected power cost should probably be figured in as well, but that varies widely so I didn't include it.

ell, I don't ave power usage numbers, and I am not sure about the ppd, but I thought the 2060 was slightly faster than the 1070ti. So what prices for each have you been seeing. We can discuss it so long as its not you selling something looking for a price check. I thought the 1070 was like $200 (as I just bought a couple off of ebay, best deal I could find), and the 1070ti I am not sure, but when the 2060 came out for $350, I had to try one, and I am not unhappy. At $285, the 1070ti could be be a deal, but the power usage I have no idea, I just thought the 2060 was lower power.

Looking at this: https://www.anandtech.com/show/13762/nvidia-geforce-rtx-2060-founders-edition-6gb-review/14
The 1070ti and the 2060 are very close in load power. The same article has the 2060 at about 10% faster in F@H bench, So its really up to you.

Just my 2cents but when I ran F@H back in December's race my
1070ti on Linux was doing 875k ppd.

Was that linux or windows ? If it was linux, I can believe that. I think the 2060 would do 1 milllion in linux.

Check out this thread from the folding forum. One user is claiming 900K to 1100K PPD on a 2060 in linux.
And I would believe that since I saw 850k several times (its only 750k right now, win 10) and linux does 30% more PPD on the same box. The 1100k could be pushing it.

And a quote from that thread that I believe:

"$349.99US for 850,000 to 1,000,000 PPD at 150W power cap.

It seems we may have a new value king in the quest for the lowest GPU PPD/W "

Right now in win 10 its doing 840k ppd

Edit: 877k now

Half a year down the line, and the 2060 does 1.04M PPD, and at a power draw of only 125W, with fan to Max to reach temps of below 55C (in Linux), and between 870k and 920k PPD in Windows.

I'm really interested in the numbers for those super cards!

Hey there, @ProDigit ! It is good to see you, and welcome! We hope you will stick around! We have a Folding competition coming up for December

Markfw is our primary Folder, whilst the rest of us are just BOINC'ing here and there. But we all come together for our annual holiday season Folding comp.

edit: Pro. Digit. Hmmm, a digit can be a number, or a finger/toe. Professional-finger? Say man, you're not a proctologist, are you? :oops:
