And "EVGA RTX 2060 KO" performance speedup only shows in compute workflows like CUDA or OpenCL used by FAH. It does not showup in 3D games, so no sold out because of gamers. It will be a good choice for FAH users

Does anybody know if there's an OpenCL program somwhere that can report the actual hardware characteristics of a GPU? Utilites like GPU-Z simply look up the information in a table and you always get the same information that's advertised (or posted on Wikipedia).

The official Ti suffix means there's an actual change to the hardware. I'm not sure if the KO suffix means the same thing since it's not a change to the NVidia designation.

I found that the Nvidia SDK for linux has a sample program for querying CUDA Device information. I've included the output for my EVGA 2060 KO (non-ultra) from both the app deviceQuery and "nvidia-smi --query". Both report 1920 CUDA cores as expected.
It's only been running for ~15 minutes, but FahCore_21 on Project 14320 is showing estimated TPF of 2 minutes 50 seconds, estimated PPD 997345.

That PPD of 997k on 14320 is roughly in line with my normal 2060 so no increase there

useful data @Nathan_P

I've seen massive variations in 11738 WU with anything from 1.19m to 700K on identical 1070s. That figure earlier of nearly 1.4m might not be overly representative of the 2060 KO.

I think you will find it is(Representative), my KO Ultra gets those fame rates (and around that PPD) on every 11737 and 11738 WU.

The 2060 KO is running an 11738 at 2 min 03 secs PPD 1354549 currently ,I have not seen it work a 11739 (Its probably in my logs) yet but since my 1080TI is at 1 min 03 secs PPD 1402197 currently , I anticipate the 2060 KO Ultra doing the same...Also to be accurate all my numbers indicate 1,350,000 to 1,360,000 as an average not 1.4million...Just to be accurate.

My question is...Why doesn't it perform better on the other WU's?

This is a dedicated folding rig with the 1080 TI handling the screen and any background usage...The 1080 TI PPD goes up and down but the KO is constant. If the KO was running the monitor and handling other tasks, I would expect PPD to be lower.

The crazy numbers are due to the Core22 WU, not the chip. My 2060 does 1.4M PPD on 11738 as well, and does around 1.2M on 11739. Core21 WU generally sit around 1M

Now that is interesting, I have not seen that on my 2 vanilla 2060's. Is that highly OC'ed?

Hardware wise, a GPU with N shaders (or "CUDA Cores") running at M Ghz will produce a certain number of GFLOPS when producing 100% of it's capabilities. The concept of "hidden cores" isn't valid.

It's certainly true that small proteins can't maintain 100% production if N is a large number whereas large proteins get very, very close.

FACT: Your GPU can't produce more than 100%, no matter what changes in the FAHCore.

This whole discussion can be validated or invalidated by testing a somewhat smaller protein on a smaller GPU. That should produce close to 100% throughput on that GPU and should establish a reasonable estimate of what PPD that GPU can do. Larger proteins would then also produce 100% throughput and (if the proteins are properly benchmarked) about the same PPD.

At this point, FAH uses OpenCL. As far as I know, the OpenCL is built on top of CUDA, so if CUDA's FloatinmPoint performance is made more efficient, some of that improvment might or might not be passed on as an improvement to OpenCL. Your benchmarking is probably a good tool to determine that. It's reasonable to assume that the KO benchmarking comparing OpenCL performance of the KO to the OpenCL performance of the non-KO wouldn't be as effective to comparing KO CUDA to non-KO CUDA, because FAHCores have not run native CUDA recently.

At some time in the future, FAHCore_22 might (or might not) be recompiled to use native CUDA rather than OpenCL. Such a recompile will be beneficial for all nVidia GPUs but AMD GPUs will still be using the OpenCL version.

KO is just an old suffix EVGA has resurrected for this line of cards like the ‘XC’ they also use.

It has the somewhat anaemic cooler from the 1660 Super which is inferior to that found on the 2060 and 2060 Super XC and Ultra models they sell.

I can also confirm that the PPD seen on this card is in-line with my 2060 XC Ultra.

No its actually power limited to 140W (stock 160W). I also use Linux, which generally gives a bit of bump in PPD, so those two factors probably balance out.

No they don't, they're disabled. But the entire chip architecture (memory controllers and compute pipeline design) does.
