From what I read on forums this is really low :
 

 
But then again, most data I found dates back from 2015
What are peeps getting in 2017 with these cards?

    Sorry image text is to small to read, reduce the image and re-snap the upper Left.
    What Driver are you running?
    I use 373.06 for all non-1080 Ti Cards.
    How many Threads are you Folding on your CPU and what CPU is it?
    You need 1 Thread Per GPU and if you Fold on the CPU set the Threads is Pairs like 4 6 8 and so one.
     
    Odd place to put this Thread, maybe here is a better place Folding@EVGA over Folding@Home Help and Guides that is.

    Back in the day I always asked my f@h questions here, given it's the help section of distributed computing :)
    CPU is folding on 9 threads since it's already been proven that this makes little to no diff. to gpu perf as long as one thread is free per GPU. CPU is an i7 970
    Cheers for the driver advice will try that out!
    Here's a snippit of the figures :

    9414 & 10496 are hard WUs even on a 1080 Card and you do have two 10496 to boot.
    But the PPD for each card looks ok.
    What Graphics Driver are you running?
    Are you set to Full?
    # of Threads 12 for your CPU
    8 CPU Threads for the CPU 1 CPU Thread for the OS and 1 Thread for Each GPU is what I would recommend.
    Best of luck

    Thanks for the heads up!
    CPU folding is stopped due to low output.

    Yes, most of our team stopped Folding on the CPU when BigAdv Project Ended and the GTX 980 Cards came out.
    I had issues with Driver 382.53 on my 1080 Ti Cards and went back to 378.92 only on my GTX 1080 Ti Cards.
    My Titans, 980, and 1080 run 373.06 as posted above, I have not seen any Game Issue with Driver 373.06 to note.

    On my 970 I was lucky to get 270k ppd.  I haven't bothered to fold on my CPU as the points just aren't there.  15-30k and for the amount of power you are using it's better to just buy another video card and fold with it.  Stanford has said they are not bringing back BID ADV even with the advent of massively parallel processing, which I think is pretty stupid, as we will have tonnes of people with all this spare processing power.  Ah well, it's not like they really listen to the user base anyways, right?

    Out of 312 completed work units on my GTX 970 FTW while running driver version 372.90 or 373.06: I have an average PPD of 338,778.  
    Highest PPD was 415,061 on project 11431 Run 7 Clone 34 Gen 59 
    Lowest PPD was 287,959 on project 11431 Run 8 Clone 4 Gen 64
     
    As you can see, PPD on some projects can have a fairly wide range.
     
    If I include ALL my completed work units including horrible driver versions, my average drops to 326,913 PPD over 370 completed work units.  
     
    NOTE: My card typically runs between 1392Mhz - 1434Mhz boost clock on the core when folding thanks to water cooling!!!
