I must say, this Gradient Descent method results in things I often get when trying to bend paper clips into useful or otherwise 'artistic' objects. :snooty:

OK so fitted the RTX 2080ti. Good news is Wow is so fast! First unit an 11718 and ppd estimate 180+kppd. Less good news is wow so hot! Running in the 70's C . My usual GPU controlling tool: Afterburner is not letting me do fan control for this card. Tried the EVGA Precision but refuses to start. Teething problems... Will just let it run and try sorting it out tomorrow. This card maybe needs to be below the other card a GTX 1080ti to let it have some more air.

OK so some googling has led me to a beta version of MSI Afterburner than shows fan speed and allows me adjust the speed. Seems it was already going fast, so I made it a little faster bringing the card temp down to 72c and since it was down I decided to give the card little voltage bump to see if it will run even faster. Seeing an enormous range of PPDs for this card 1.6-2.1Mppd, yes that's M not k ppd depending on the WU looking like it fastest on high atom count units.

Dropping this new card with 4352 shader processors in my box reminded me of how amazingly far things have progressed since I built my first folding rig in 2009. That one had 4x 9800GT's and 2 x dual core SMPS (the old name for multi cpu clients) running in a VM. On a good day I could average 20kppd which was considered super impressive in the days before quick return bonuses.
I bought the new card direct from the manufacturer avoiding all the current scam prices which are up to $1000 over recommended price, I even see some GTX 1080ti 's at this price which seem to be there to look like the RTX's.

Came here after I noticed your ppd bump - really nice.

Hoping to update my home computer at some point in Q1. Rumor mill is that Navi will have a 10 - 15% bump in performance at almost half the price of current lineups. If true (big IF), I could pick up a new GPU or even a used 1080 with a significant price drop....

The current prices are crazy, don't expect a new iteration of the RTX series until 2nd half of next year but hopefully the prices will fall back to the expected price not this current exorbitant gouging.
I have an EVGA GTX 1080 hybrid available if you are shopping.

I'm not shopping quite yet, recently had to purchase a new vehicle and need finances to settle down before I can justify updating GPUs. Thanks for the thought though.

Team output currently very impressive, member PlayLoud has again overtaken me and is currently averaging 3mppd+ . :o
Have access to the new computer I helped a young friend build and the GTX 970ti I gave him while he is off on vacation so I will get an extra boost for the next week.
Expect by end of year we advance to 52nd spot in the most productive teams list and at current output make the 40's within 4 weeks. Really amazing output for some crazy bunch of Atheists, Skeptics and Humanists with computers and no corporate or mining affiliation, just some hardware and an idea that ASH people can produce citizen science.
Well done and a happy new year to all of you.

So my 'new' borrowed GTX 970ti GPU adding 20% to my output just in time for new large atom count work units which decrease points per day significantly so the extra effort appears invisible on the numbers but extra science is being done. Basically from a numbers point of view this has maintained my previous output, but happy to fold whatever the send me and is interesting to see these more complex projects being released.

Welcome!
What are you running? If you are running the standard setup you should see (in windows) a coloured ball protein icon in your tool bar. Right click this and choose 'advanced control' a window should open showing you progressive and estimated points.

To maximise your results you will need a passkey:
https://foldingathome.org/support/faq/points/passkey/
This an individual ID that when activated and you qualify after completing 10 work units with 80% success rate will award you extra 'points' for completing them quickly.

What name are you folding under?

We have reached number 46 for most productive teams!
Welcome back wiki 62 a very powerful folder from the past now contributing 2m + ppd.
If people have noticed my PPD surge recently, no I haven't added another card I have been beta testing the new core 22 gpu unit and it is making better use of my GPUs. Beta testing is now ended and public 'advanced' testing in progress; https://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=31454
Warning, better utilization of GPU means the GPU working harder therefore hotter, this core still under testing so be aware that overclocks etc that were stable in core 21 may not remain so in core 22. I suggest you consider your system temps before adding : client-type advanced to your setup. I suggest all overclocks be removed for testing.
Best increases in ppd on the trial unit appear to be in desktop GPUs of older generations, windows catching up to linux on this but still requiring dedicated CPU cores. My GTX 1080ti increased output considerably on these initial small atom count units with a big increase in card temps, while my RTX 2080ti had a smaller increase proportionally with no noticeable change in temps as probably still underutilized. Poor results so far on laptop GPUs with thermal regulation, as noted due to increased temps causing throttling.
AMD gpus seem not to be doing so well at present by comparison but early days and driver updates may fix this.
Overall these new core remain in testing stage but hold much promise for increased science done with the same hardware, this overall good news for GPU folders. I expect this new core will be rolled out for general use within the next few weeks so for those unwilling to monitor their systems closely as testers this not far away. For those with the most powerful GPUs I suspect that new units with larger atom counts will produce startling results with this new core in the future.

Noticed Halucigenia recently had a big drop in ppd, wondering if a card died or couldn't overclock any more? For the public advanced testing, I was wondering how you sign up to get those cores? I'm running 21 right now.

Core 22 has been removed from advanced due to testers at the advanced level having issues beyond what the initial beta testing group had.
To test advanced projects you add the lines in expert settings: client-type : advanced.
