Team,

VJ mentioned in his blog that Core 17 is now in advanced testing - here's the link to his blog:

http://folding.typepad.com/

I tried Core 17 and got a nice bump in points - about 70k more per day across 6 video cards.

Currently running (4) 660 ti and (2) 560 ti 448 video cards

Give it a try and let us know.

Jedd

I am all over it. Been back at it for almost 2 weeks now and trying to crack the top 20 for the first time. Maybe core 17 will help :twisted:

Awesome!

Gets me thinking about selling a few things to get a GTX 780 or a Titan.

Anyone folding with those?

PPD?

It looks to me like Core 17 is great for beefy (or at least semi-beefy) hardware, but kills PPD for lesser cards.

I got a nice boost (~30% better PPD) on my overclocked GTX 650 Ti, but for both my stock GT 430 and laptop HD 6570M, PPD dropped in half or less, so I got rid of the client-type:advanced flag from those slots, and, for now at least, I'm seeing a net PPD gain.

Professor Pande's blog post mentioned Fermi and Radeon HD5000 (or better) and also listed some seriously nice gains in relation to high-end GPUs, which seems to be the case. However, I'm hoping once these are pushed out for everyone (not just 'adv'), that they try to prioritize feeding them to cards that actually do them justice, or else those running weaker cards will end up stinging a bit

Just came home from a week vacation to find that this "upgrade" is giving me an error message on all 4 Fermi clients. It tells me that there's a file missing. I'm assuming that I need to update the GPU driver, since I haven't touched them in a while.

Got the missing file issue fixed.

It was "libglib-2.0-0.dll". It's an extension that I believe to be part of windows, not the device driver.

According to what I could find on the folding forum about it, it appears that v6 client doesn't have the path to find the file.

If anyone else has this problem, and prefers the older console style to the whiz-bang v7, here's what I did:

1> Search your hard drive for that file (just using "libglib" as search criteria worked for me), and copy it.
2> Paste it into the directory for each of your GPU clients.
3> SCIENCE! iow: continue helping Stanford and team MPC find a cure!

I've been running core_17 for quite a while. I've been out since late May, but when I was running, I saw a bit of a bump in my GTX 650 Ti (up ~5-10k PPD to around 25k PPD) and a pretty major bump in my GTX 660 Ti (up to ~55-65k PPD). I just got a new card and will be replacing both of the aforementioned cards with a Radeon 7970 (looking like ~100k PPD on these with the new core).

See my numbers from my 'other' team for Feb - May here:
http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/ ... =&u=516992

Fun stuff!

Are these videocards Fermi or better? Also make sure you are using the advanced flag instead of the beta flag.

Also make sure that WU size is not set to big for the GPU slot. Only works with the default normal size setting.

three fermi, one kepler. As I mentioned, I had all four running 17s at the same time. No settings have been changed since I got that round of them, but I haven't seen any more since then.

Here's my client.cfg:
Spoiler: show
[settings]
username=bbies1973
team=11108
passkey=df0563a21da3285b663521ae1df0772e
asknet=no
machineid=11
bigpackets=big
extra_parms=-gpu 1 -forcegpu nvidia_fermi -verbosity 9
local=1777

[http]
active=no
host=localhost
port=8080
usereg=no

[core]
checkpoint=30
addr=

[clienttype]
memory=1024
type=3
I see the memory size as numerical, and packet size is big. I wasn't aware of a big/small WU size flag for the GPU clients?

Yes, this is for Fermi and newer cards, more specifically the 6xx, and 7xx series cards. Also, better, higher end cards seem to be more positively effected. I believe that there was a short shortage a bit ago. There may be a shortage now too.

Will these work on a 5870? I barely used it for Folding since it got such a pitiful PPD.

I'd be more than happy to dust off my passkey and give it a whirl if it does!

Yes. Get v13.6 beta driver as well.

I take it this means that the core did not download correctly?

Code:
ERROR:WU01:FS00:Exception: Failed to access core package.

My GTX 650 Ti just jumped up to 39.5k PPD, I love you Core 17!

Image

Edit: Must have just been a lucky WU frame, a couple minutes later it dropped back to ~23k. Easy come, easy go. Enabling it for the 650 Ti has still been a net benefit to my PPD, tho

From some info I found about people getting that error, deleting your FAHClient 'work' folder might re-set things so you can fold again, you will lose any pending WUs if you do that, though.

Better to delete the fahcore folder (not the work folder) and let it try to download the fahcore again.

Thanks 7im. Any luck, n0b0dykn0ws?
