Your appinfo has some errors.

First of all the copy tag is missing in the r390 section.
Evenso ffa_block, ffa_block_fetch and unroll are astropulse params not MB one so beeing ignored.



The copyfile works, Thanks!

Keep in mind most of 560ti are factory overclocked.
Remember my thread at lunatics about this behaviour.

Of the seven hosts I'm tracking so far for inconclusives, only one is running a 560Ti

I've just downloaded 49 inconclusive datafiles from X-Files' GTX 580 with unroll=8 - what do you suggest is wrong with that one?


the inconclusives I checked are all 30 rep pulses.
looks like with unroll 8 on that card it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.

@ X-Files try and decrease unroll

I will adjust the params once I get home. unroll will be 6.

Other notes:
0.51 for AP and 0.49 for MB
GPUs are OC'ed thru the bios
XFX PRO1250W Black Edition = kill-a-watt says 932W usage

Here's my list of Inconclusive:

Are those all from Pending AstroPulse v6 tasks for computer 2340442? With your computers hidden, it would take longer than I'm willing to spend before bedtime to check them all individually.

But with that throughput, we can get a statistical impression of the scale of the problem - 18 valid, 6 invalid for that host as I type implies a 25% failure rate. That's not good, for you or for the project's bandwidth.

Yes its for 2340442 and i don't have this issue with v5.

This system doesn't suffer from excessive CPU usage:
Win7, i5-2500k
GTX 570
296.35 (quadro driver using modded inf)




I think at most its using 20% CPU.


Good to know this!
Now it's interesting to know what caused that, your driver version, your Os version or your GPU version... or smth we even can't imagine ;)


Whats bugling me is that I can't replicate this low cpu usage on my other rig - always settled at 85%.
The good thing is that there's no more sleep bug in this NV driver version.

Here's my take on this. My angle of view is the total WUs completed in a given time.

E.g.
Win7
GTX 580

2 Instances:
Elapsed Time: 10 Mins
AR: .42
Total WU completed in 60mins: 12WUs

3 Instances:
Elapsed time: 16 Mins
AR: .42
Total WU completed in 60Mins: 11Wus

Note: Numbers are rounded up


WINNER: 2 Instances

The prices on the cards this year are crazy. What's the point of getting a $600 card when some GTX 580s are now below $400?

Initial cost might be lower but longer its not. Less power hungry means less electricity bill.
