Most optimal config

Postposted on Fri May 23, 2008 9:59 am

I've got two 3850's (512mb) on the way for a crossfire setup. These will be dropped in to my Q9300@3.2 ghz rig.

I was wondering, PPD wise, what my most optimal setup would be. 2x VM-SMP boxes, 1x SMP-VM and 2x GPU client, 1 SMP (windows) 1x GPU, and so forth

The most optimal setting is to ensure your username is "UnitedGerbilNation" :D :D :D :D

and once you've done that, how about run the SMP client on two cores, the pair the other two cores to the two 3850s running GPU2?

If that is possible, I bet it would rack up some serious points.

its possible. I might even be able to run both GPUs off one core but then my gpu folding would probably become CPU-limited.

How much PPD for GPU2? At 3ghz+, a dual core folding setup should yield ~2000PPD +-200.
