Good day.
I recently revived a ddr2 desktop. It has e2180 CPU and especely for seti I've added a Nvidia gtx560ti GPU. In 8 minutes this GPU is cruncing a task. I've seen on net that compute capability is 2.1 and It can 1.2TFLOPS in F32 and 105 GFLOPS in F64.
How is it?
Seti has 1.1 PETAFLOPS.
also donated 14.40 USD to GPUUG. Do they buy video bords and compute for seti?

A gtx 1060 3GB averages 7-8 minutes on a single gpu task under Windows. I am told that the standard Linux tasks run in the same ballpark. Your gpu is the same card of an older generation so having it run about those times seems to be reasonable.

Depending on what the project requires the GPUUG will provide funds for the general funding of the project, or for specific hardware. I don't think they have a specific funding drive in action just now so donations will be grouped together and sent to the project to support its general running cost (paying for things like salaries, server hosting costs etc.). Over the years they have had specific drive for just about every bit of computer hardware imaginable - not just GPUs.

In its day the GTX560ti was a pretty good card, but has been overtaken by quite a number of cards with much better performance, and lower power demands. Depending on which application running you will find the run-time for a task to be between 20 and 60 minutes, it will never run the current "hot" application as it is not compatible with the level of CUDA required, or the minimum compute level.

a Nvidia gtx560ti GPU.

Just keep an eye on the results- many models of the GTX 560Ti when released were clocked at their absolute limits and tended to produce errors when crunching with the CUDA application. SoG is more efficient and as a result works the hardware even harder.

Your other system would be able to produce more work if you disable the iGPU processing as the shared thermal, power, cache & memory resources results in less work being done by the CPU (and the iGPU) compared to if they are the only device processing work.
