Help COVID-19 / 2019-NCOV Research through folding@home or BOINC
Been running F@H nightly with the RTX 2080 attached to my MacBook Pro, and the Radeon VII attached to my mini-itx PC. I've found the client gets confused if the GPU changes due to egpu hot plugging, and it wasn't happy about my RVII being disabled when I use it on the MacBook in bootcamp for its usb peripherals, so I hot unplug the Core v2 before I turn folding on, and pop it into the Ryzen PC. I've also found that if its not working uninstalling and reinstalling can help, and doesn't take too long.
Originally I was using the CPU's on both machines and the 5500m on the MacBook, I disabled cpu/dgpu folding on the MacBook Pro for now to reduce wear and tear and because I was having stability issues. Also been having occasional BSOD and reboot issues on the Ryzen PC which has been otherwise stable. The RTX egpu hasn't had any issues whatsoever so maybe its an AMD driver problem.
@ningauble77 Running right behind you with Intel NUC i3 & 2070 GTX gaming box (underclocked to 125W). Whole combo is taking 150W and giving 1.2M PPD, pretty good 🙂
As of yesterday, these are the updated Folding@home FLOPS stats:
In other words, it now boasts almost 50% more computational power than the whole TOP500 list. 😯
This is unreal, keep them going folks!
OK, newbie here. I have been running BOINC for many months, but recently switched from SETI to Rosetta. I Googled and found the eGPU.io team and joined. The thing is ... I don't actually have an eGPU. I'm processing on a Dell laptop and getting maybe a few hundred credits per day. (Every bit helps, right?) What's an inexpensive upgrade path to be able to help more? My laptop is a Dell Latitude E6430.
If you have a link to this info, I'd appreciate it.
