nathan_PAre all these numbers under windows? Linux should add another 10-15% if its works properly
Chris21010OK, ran another 9 units @100% power and the conclusion is at best a 10% improvement when directly comparing unit 9704 before and after. at worse only 5% improvement on the group avg if you remove the unusually high PPD unit 9205. SO, those numbers should be good enough to say that at best a 1070 may get you around 600K PPD, after a little OCing.
toyking229158 x18 core = 471689 for a 980 ti (so its 30k points less then the 9157)10489 = 493380
kram36Are these new card's power settings different? All my previous cards ran at 100% power setting right out of the box. Were you trying something different?
Chris21010OK, i got a video for you to watch and i think you'll be as perplexed as i currently am about this power issue. https://youtu.be/t8Iyp3BFF30 in short, if you want 100% GPU utilization you'll have to open a youtube video, pause it, and leave it there. otherwise it will drop right back down to ~60%.
kram36toyking229158 x18 core = 471689 for a 980 ti (so its 30k points less then the 9157)10489 = 493380and eats almost twice the amount of electricity.
drougnorIn a day or two I should be able to run some 1070 tests of my own. Getting excited while waiting!
zopharFinally caught an in stock product I see. Hope it gets there quickly and safely. Looking forward to seeing your results.
Chris21010i guess i'll make note now instead of later but i am re-running my tests as i recently learned that even though all my hardware is pcie 3.0 compliant i was running at pcie 2.0 speeds. i had to force enable pcie 3.0 on my system for it to run at those speeds. but i currently only have 3 finished units so i don't have enough data to properly compare but i know that there will be a slight increase.
zopharMost likely you won't see any change. Folding is not a bandwith intensive application. It uses a lot of core power but not a lot of data transfer over the PCI-e lanes.
Chris21010my numbers are a single 1070... and i assume by low you are implying minimum PPD values? if so then 500K would be a solid minimum ppd estimate for the 1070.
Chris21010OK, im 7 units in now after i corrected that pcie buss problem and so far its a 10% improvement over previous numbers to ~630K PPD. i am going to let this run a couple more days and if it stays this way or if it falls off i'll let you know. if this does stabilize 10% higher than before i'll correct my first post numbers with the new data.
scott@bjorn3dIncreasing the PCI bus to 3.0 does help. I am running a X79 mobo with 3960x and running the NVIDIA patch to take it to 3.0 ups performance 10-15% Folding. At 2.0 my cards in GPUZ where each at eating 49-51 percent of the PCI bus. Going to 3 they are now at 26-30% each.
nathan_PWhat cpu are you driving the rig with? I've done some experiments on a 970 & 980ti on PCIe 1,2 and 3 and have only seen 6% improvements at most, but I'm wondering if my slow cpu is bottling the cards a bit.
Eric1285Any chance you were running PCIe 2.0 x8 before the switch?
