I just upgraded myself from a 9400gt to an Nvidia GTX 460 and (obivously) a new power supply and all I an say is WOW! this card is uber quick at CUDA, my tasks where flagged as 18hrs+ its doing them in about 20-30 mins each!

I have an MSI GTX460 Cyclone OC, but curiously I think the GFLOPS estimate is wrong. It is showing up as 363 GFLOPS, while my 9800GTX+ is showing 499GFLOPS.

Comments? How does it compute GFlops, what does BOINC rate yours, etc. How to fix or is it broken?

Mine comes in at 605 GFLOPS while my 5830 is at 1792 GFLOPS.

I think the 460's are still new enough that they are not getting a complete reading yet, give it some time and see what it will run time wise instead.

4 whatever boxes are broken........
Crippled from the crib or whatever.

They are so lame.

Fermi was a bust.

Hype, nothing more.

If I could downgrade to some 200 series cards from the 3 4's I bought, I would do it in a heartbeat.
Excuse me if I am hard to understand at times.......I've had a difficult few lives.

Do I need to reinstall the optimized apps? I did have them installed and just installed this card?

If you have any doubts, I would just rerun the Lunatics auto installer.
It should set everything correctly with the new card.

Keep in mind that after a rerun of the Installer your (maybe) modified app_info.xml will be overwritten.

I use an older GTX 260 and it comes in at 560 GFLOPS when at the factory clock settings. 590/999

I have not found any game unplayable so I do not overclock but I have found it can be cranked up quite a bit over 600 GFLOPS.

So now the Fermi cards users seem to be not too happy with the float() performance.

I noticed a GTX 460 had no real gain over the GTX 260 as far as GFLOPS went.

I do know the there are a few more cores, but I was surprised at the poor performance overall.

The rival ATI cards seem to score better.

I bought the GTX 260 for games, plain and simple and its fine even with demanding games.

My factory overclock comes in at 641...I think the official number on these is actually right under 1000 (907 or so) so an OC should be right at or over 1000.

That said using a <flops> of about 100,000,000,000 in my app info actually seems to give me the proper queue length.

Hi all,

Just posting my EVGA 470 GPUGRID numbers for you to review. I just started with this new card and already have done more crunching from the end of July to now then the past 10 years of the SETI CPU to GPU evolution!
Note: I leave my computer on 24/7 but do surf the net and play video games as well. I upgraded from a Evga 260-216x added March 2009 'til July 2010 (see graph below). I can't wait to start crunchin' the SETI WUs again!
