Hello everyone-I recently upgraded my 2nd GPU from a 750Ti to a 2070 Super and I was wonder what the avg PPD on a 2070? I am asking because my weekly production seems to have stayed the same from the weekly stats so kindly provided by TennTony and others, thank you for taking the time to do that.

The often cited "Folding@home GPUs PPD Price Watt" spreadsheet shows 1.6 M PPD. The "GPU Folding Projects - Performance" sheet shows 1.5 M PPD, from a sample size of — unfortunately — just one.

Does your FahControl concur? (I.e., the advanced control application, when you select the 2070S slot while it is actively computing.)

If you are missing these points, is the client still configured for your passkey since the upgrade?

My passkey and team ID are both valid.

FahControl does concur, I have both cards finishing their current jobs and I will post what I find.

The 1.5 - 1.6 M is definitely in the ball park. Grats on the upgrade! That's huge bump from a 750 :cool:

I removed the new 2070 and ran a quick test and the known good 2070 PPD shot up to 1.4M. They are running on an older Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 with an 8 core FX chip and 32GB of RAM on Win10 1000w PSU and the latest Nvidia driver. Would the 2nd PCIe slot be limiting both cards? The board does have PCI 2.0 x 16.

The blue slot on the M5A97 LE R2.0 board is PCIe 2.0 x16, the black one is PCIe 2.0 x4. Big GPUs should achieve near to their to* F@h performance in the blue slot, but will fold somewhat slower in the black slot. The degree of performance degradation in the 2.0 x4 slot will depend on the size of the GPU and on the OS: While Windows and Linux are both affected, Window takes a bigger hit.

(I don't have own experience with slots with lower lane count. I use most of my Pascal GPUs in PCIe 3.0 x8 mode, some in x16 mode, all on Linux. For that, PCIe 3.0 x8 is completely adequate.)

--------
*) edit, typo: their top F@h performance

Yes, 1.4 to 1.7 is the range it should be.

Thanks MarkFW, I am currently getting in the 750k-800k range. I am going to try and delete F@H and do a clean install and see if that helps.
Are you running anything on the CPU cores? You'll need one free CPU core per GPU to maximize PPD on both GPUs.

I downloaded EVGA's X1 software and here is a screen shot that is interesting. Am I reading it correctly that second 2070 is only running at 300MHz?

Is the F@H client perhaps putting two jobs on the 1st GPU, instead of 1 on the 1st and 1 on the 2nd? GPU-z or HWmonitor or the like can show you GPU utilization.

Did you enter manual indexes in F@h's slot config, or is this all left on auto? Normally, automatic assignment of slots to GPUs should work best.

(I have dual and triple GPU setups myself, but they are Pascals with an old = stable driver version. Therefore I am not up to date what pitfalls there might be with more current hardware and drivers, concerning dual GPU setups.)

Thanks for the input.

I left it in auto up until the OpenCL debacle and had to do some tweaks to get back to Folding.

I just pulled out the 2nd 2070 and put it in another box I had laying around. So for now I am back up to ~1.7m x2.

Thanks again everyone for the advice.
