FAHbench 2.3.2 for Windows build with OpenMM 7.4.1 Core_22 with mixed precision
https://www.file-upload.net/download-13996613/FAHBenchwithOpenMM7.4.1core22mixedprecision.zip.html

So that should match the current FAH GPU core for Corona Virus work units.

Thanks for the update to the benchmarks :), totally agree about no point in gathering more for now.

So what is the long list of stress tests you use then? ;)
I was thinking of using OCCTs GPU stress test, but I wonder if it's artificially throttled as (IIRC) it's counted as a 'power virus'. As is furmark.
So I would like to know what is a realistic GPU stress test (as in not throttled, or drawing an unrealistic power load) with error reporting?

You could tape over half the cooling fan slots to simulate animal hair/dust/other detritus that might realistically build up over time? … or put a cardboard box around the back of the case to simulate the tight spaces the kit might be squeezed into in an overcrowded home-office? … or randomly pull out the power lead to simulate spouse/kids wanting to plug in their stuff? … Realistic might vary dependant upon your circumstances … :) :lol:

I tested your version, but I'm seeing weird things on DHFR : it's not able to use 100% of my 1070, only 65% ... I can't explain why. GPU load is better on NAV with 95%. :?

There's also a CUDA option in your build, but it doesn't work. :(

Riiight, something like a stress test which doesn't trigger 'power virus' restrictions along with error reporting is more what I was thinking of :P.

Only just noticed your FaHbench link! I'll try it now :).
[update]Ok I've tried it now, at 1st I was getting very on/off GPU load, I then paused BOINC (but it had left a CPU core free for normal folding anyway, which works fine there) & I got a consistent GPU load, but it was only at 75-80%.
Here's a screenshot for ya. Main rig spec in sig. Btw, what mix of SP/DP did you go for? Or is that not chosen by the benchmark program?

This list of mine was last updated in 2016 since that was the last time I assembled by system. I haven't done any research into current stress test software... that might change next year if I decide to get myself a AMD Zen 3 + Nvidia 3000 Ti GPUs :mrgreen:

I like stressing out CPU/GPU/RAM simultaneously as opposed to individual components. I also ensure that the ambient temperature is as high as possible... including using a heat as I like simulating the worst conditions my system would perform in. However, with what I have been reading about "automatic overclocking" I think in my next build, I will focus on maximum cooling and let the hardware do it's job as opposed to manually overclocking anything :)

Thanks :), some I'm familiar with, I use OCCT for CPU testing & it's better than P95, so I don't use that anymore.
Heaven doesn't have error reporting for the free version, so I don't know how you would know when an error occurs? (out right crashes aside).
Furmark is detected by the drivers as a 'power virus' (as is one other I can't remember the name of), and so power is throttled for that test, so I'm not sure how good a test that makes it.
Are their any on your list which are GPU tests, do error testing+reporting & don't apply an 'unrealistic' load? Tall order I know! :D
I remember when ATITool would automatically lower GPU clock speeds on finding an error, magic! (didn't that become Furmark?).

Agreed about CPU overclocking, my Ryzen 3600 is the 1st CPU I haven't manually overclocked in over 20 yrs!

I never bothered to do reporting... I tend to sit in front my screen while all this runs and make notes on paper with a pencil... talk about old school :lol:

Hours isn't really old school .. PantherX probably means days :wink: :D :!: … although he is using a pencil not a slate :shock:

Nah... I have upgraded to markings in the sand :mrgreen: Of course, if the wind blows, I have to start all over again :lol:

Just for fun I've benchmarked my GeForce GTX 660M (retired from active FAH duty a few years ago) ;-)
