Question OK, I won a 3070 on the newegg shuffle.

Does anybody have one and know how much power they take, and how many PPD they do in F@H ? If it sucks I will sell it here for what I paid + shipping (probably $750 total)

BTW, I tried for a 5900x and a 5950x, that I would have sold one of them, but did not win either. And its supposed to ship tomorrow.

Congratulations on winning the Shuffle! It definitely won't suck, I don't have the exact numbers in front of me but it should be roughly in the same ballpark in both power usage and PPD to a 2080ti.

I turned off all my video cards, except the 2080TI's as 5 million ppd for 260 watts at just killer. I will let you all know how it works out. I really wanted a 3080, but it was not on the shuffle, and I lost the CPUs, but that was definitely going to be for resale for you guys if I won one.

Well, I had it going, but it was only doing 3 million ppd. Remote access wasn;t working, so I edited that and rebooted. Now it stuck on connecting.

Hopefully that was just a low PPD WU. I think it should be somewhere around 4 million PPD. Did it ever reconnect?

Nope, I de-installed and re-installed to no avail. Going to try and do a clean wipes of lefyover files and try it again tomorrow.

And with more cuda cores, I thought it would at least match my 5 million ppd 2080ti's.

OK, I couldnlt stand it. A complete clean and reinstall, and I an back to 3.2 million ppd. My $740 2080TI is doing 5 mil. This thing sucks. a 2060 can do 2 million.

Maybe sell it to a scalper for a profit and wait for the RTX 4000 series? RTX 2080 Ti is/was pretty hard to beat. Especially when you could find them for under $500 right before 3000 series launch.

I'm impressed by your 2080ti PPD. I wonder if your cards are maybe higher end cards(factory OC'd, or maybe better cooling so they boost clocks better?). I don't think I've ever gotten over 4 million PPD on my 2080ti. A non OC 3080 does around 5 million PPD, so it's going to be tough to beat your 2080ti's by any substantial margin without going up to a 3090. I am surprised to hear the 3070 is only 3.2 million PPD though - that is a bummer. I wonder if there's any chance it's using OpenCL instead of CUDA - that could account for the lower PPD. If you take a look at the Folding log, there's a line when it starts the task that says if it's using CUDA or not, but I don't remember what the exact verbiage is off hand. If you post your Folding log I'd be happy to take a look and see if I see it. The chart @IEC just posted has the 3070 at nearly 3.8 million in Linux, but that's still well under your 2080ti's.

The good news being, you can easily get at least what you paid for it back out if you decide to sell it(and more than you paid, depending on where you sell it). I would probably be interested even, but am not asking for dibs or anything like that I'm sure there are plenty of others that would happily buy it.

They are all EVGA and pretty much stock lower end. There must be some bad units, becuase right now, the 2080TIs are doing 4.4-4.7 mill, not a one is at 5 mil.

Edit: sell it to a scalper ? No way, even if I made $500 screw them. I will just hold it. Tomorrow I will check the power usage.
