Highest I get was about 150k PPD.

Power draw's pretty good, I'm seeing around 140w - 160w wall draw on 90% efficiency PSU.

I'm using the GALAX GTX 960 OC http://www.goldfries.com/hardware-revie ... rd-review/

What I like is that I could maintain silent operation at around 45% fan speed while maintaining GPU temps under 70°C.

Yes, it's based on a GM206 chip rather than a GM204 but that still makes it rather different than the GM107 used in the GTX 750 Ti. My guess is that the 3rd digit in the chip name means something, but we won't know until somebody tests it.

NVidia may fix the problem with new drivers at any time and make the answer unimportant. (They may already have. See my reply in this topic.)

Is this in Windows? Looks like the GTX970 will still hold the crown for for PPD/$/watt. I get 300K PPD each out of all 4-970's I have in Linux @ 1503Mhz.

Yes it is running windows.

And there is no doubt about 970 is king of PPD/Watt and PPD/$ by far.

I just bought this to find out what it`s potential myself.

And we thank you for that. Still a neat little card to play with. I bet you could pick up 10K PPD in Linux. :D

how much Watt does it need Sn1ken? And what does GPUz says about the TDP?

i know the tests from TPU but i wanted to get the value while folding. E.g the 970 takes around 47% TDP while Project 9201 is on the line meaning it takes around 120-140 Watt. (G1 Gaming = 250 W TDP) ;)

I use use wattmeter like this:

At 1540Mhz and 177k PPD (now on my i7 rig PCIe 3.0 x16) I read 107W when Pause folding, and 170W from the wall when folding.

To compare my 295x2 says 550W (about 450W GPU) on the same meter when folding stock and produce about 460k PPD.
