Projected PPD with this hardware?

Postby Methal » Sat Apr 03, 2010 5:46 pm

q6600 running -smp 4 with ubuntu 9.10 under VMware 3.0.

i7 920 @ 3.4ghz running -bigadv with ubuntu 9.10 under vmware 3.0.

mobile i7-720 @ 1.6ghz running smp-4 in Mint 8. native.

GTX 285 under XP pro.

Thanks =D

Well that's a very hard question, why don't you run them and tell us :ewink:
The big advanced should be around 20kppd depending on upload/down load times and whether you are -smp 7 or 8.
Your 6600 will also depend on overclock but maybe 2kppd on A1s and 4-6kppd on A3 if running 24/7.
The GTX 285 will vary depending on units and OC but lets call it 10kppd.
No idea on the laptop, depends on what you run on it.
Overall guesstimate.. lots , so get to it :lol: and welcome to folding.

Answered in the Team32 Forum, but the question was slightly different. I'll respond further there.

Do you really need your VMs ?

Thanks ChasR.

I don't NEED the VMs. I could put linux native on all my machines, but Fallout3 doesn't run well in a VM, and my wife uses the i7 for some coupon printing program....which like a lot of narrow sighted programs doesn't run under Linux.

what kind of performance improvements would I see running native?

I found that I gained aprox. 10% dropping VM's.

In particular, the Q6600 can run SMP A3's natively under Windows just as well as in Linux. Since you are OC'ing the i7, what about OC'ing the Q6600 which historically does very well OC'ed and with A3's you can gain quite a lot of PPD from the OC.

q6600 running -smp 4 with ubuntu 9.10 under VMware 3.0. Assuming stock 2.66 GHz and no config. problems.
6000 PPD for A3.

i7 920 @ 3.4ghz running -bigadv with ubuntu 9.10 under vmware 3.0. Assuming 4.8 GB available to VM, no config. problems, no turbo on top of freq. quote.
22000 PPD for A2.

mobile i7-720 @ 1.6ghz running smp-4 in Mint 8. native. Assuming no turbo or power throttling.
3600 PPD for A3.

GTX 285 under XP pro. Assuming stock. Points linear with shader clock speed.
8000 PPD.

My configuration warnings relate to Ubuntu 9.10 defaulting to an -ext 4 file system, which may cause lengthy writing delays on a VM and loss of points on time sensitive units. You can get around this by installing a different version, such as Ubuntu 8.04.

Also note that these figures are for independent dedicated 24/7 systems. If you turn off an A3 or -bigadv system, or do something in the background, such that it's only processing 90% of the time, then your points per day would drop to 85% of their former rate. Running a GPU client counts as doing something in the background.

Source data: independent PPD benchmarks for a Q9550, i7 965, and GTX280.
