I note on the comparison tables a 9800Gx2 is rated as 11kppd while GTX 295 at less, I presume the GX2 is for both gpus while the GTX 295 is only for one, this distorts the actual output of these double cards.

New data that should be averaged in for the GTX 560ti on this project:

GPU: GTX 560 ti 384 shader version.
Overclock, yes 900MHz
Driver version: 301.42 .
Client Version: V 7. 1.52
Fah core 0x15 version 2.22
Project: 7623
TPF: 5.29
est PPD: 13621

Both cards doing the same consistently these versions of this project 15sec per frame slower than when I did them previously with no config changes on my part although this only a <10% variation, it makes my previous entry seem a bit high.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. However, isn't the 9800 GX2 a double GPU card and therefore is outputting the correct PPD for the card? Or are you saying the PPD should be cut in half to represent each GPU output?

I guess this raises the question of what is really being compared here. My thoughts are that the PPD of 11,000 is correct because if someone goes out and buys a 9800 GX2 that's the PPD they'll be getting (assuming 11,000 is correct for that card). I wanted this to be sort of a buying guide so people who go out to buy a card primarily for folding know what to expect for a certain card. So while this says it is a comparison of GPU's, I suppose it's really a comparison of the different cards.

Maybe I should change the name of the database :e?:...

PS: Your new data was averaged :) Unfortunately, not many are adding to the database so it's not a very reliable thing at this point anyway. I do have a little data to catch up on, but I've been occupied with other things recently, like college

Both the GX2 and the GTX 295 are doubles, but the data for the GTX295 seems to be per gpu and the GX2 per card, no way a GX2 outperforms a GTX 295 in either measure. So double cards should either be, per card or per GPU. so maybe the GTX 295 output needs to be doubled.

I'll just cut the GX2 in half. Thanks

For the GTX 260, why is the PPD for "all" lower than the individual projects? Isn't it the average?
Project || PPD
All || 5,500
5771 || 9,242
5782 || 9,267
6601 || 8,272
10501 || 9,392
10512 || 8,407

That was a mis-entry on my part. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! It has been corrected

AMD 6950 Sapphire Toxic Edition 2Gb Unlocked 1536 Shaders
Overclocked = 950 Core 1365 Mem
Driver Ver = CCC 12.8
Client Ver = 7.1.52
FAH Core = 0x16:Version 2.11 (made for AMD Cards)
Project = 11293
Base Credit = 1835
TPF = 2m 52s
PPD = 9100

Okay: now for some of my own words. If I could run the older NVidia Ver 6.41 I could have some real FUN :)
To ALL AMD card users: (from my own experiments)
Set Ver 7 to CPU USGE = High under task manager and Allocate 2 CPU Cores to feed EACH GPU. This allows the GPU's to run at 100%, there was no increase by using more cpu cores :(
There was not much increase in TPF by maxing out the mem from 1350:( But taking the core from 935 (used for gaming) to Max 950 (stable for F@H) I was able to cut 15 sec off the TPF.

I Hope this helps some AMD/ATI users.

Opening that file shows "SQLite format 3" as the first words. I guess you will find the required description of the fileformat in http://www.sqlite.org/fileformat.html.

I hope that you can base an import function on that info.

Dear Corné,
Sorry for the delayed response. I actually found a program that will decipher SQLite formatted files into a spreadsheet-like format. However I am still required to manually enter the information. Maybe someday I'll write a program that will take the exported information as a CSV file and parse the columns to my fitting, however I do not think the program has export functionality, plus I am currently working on other programming priorities such as writing PHP scripts for a site that will allow users to organize the database to their preference. If you would like you can email your database file to me and I'll try to find time to enter it in.

Thanks
Patrick

compdewd, can you add power consumption to your stat? I wanna find the max PPD per watt.

Thanks

Howdy Hotmit, welcome to the forum.
While this may change in future, nVidia cards are more productive, for folding.
Here are some more useful links for you and the first link gives processing power/watt:
