Folding on Ubuntu is entirely too slow.

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am running Ubuntu 14.04 and my folding clients version is 7.4.4. My rig stats are AMD Phenom XII 975 BE @ 4.0Ghz Cooled by an H100, Gskill Ripjaws DDR3 1600, Asrock 970 Extreme3, XFX R9 280 R9-280A-TDBD running fglrx 2:13.350.1-0ubuntu2 drivers. I am using a GPU and CPU slot in my client. I am averaging about 3500PPD which is terrible considering my girlfriends rig runs an E6600 2GB DDR2 and Saphire Radeon HD6970 and she averages about 10,000PPD. I do not fold in windows because I only load windows for non Linux games and it's unstable anyway so I don't have a widows score. I have noticed that while my CPU is running full out my GPU is just idling. The GPU slot does finish work but very very slowly.

You're going to get pretty terrible performance without the native Radeon driver, aren't you? I haven't messed with AMD drivers on Linux since my X850XT PE so I might be a bit out of touch. :lol:

I took the time to install it in windows today and its running 100,000PPD so I've gotta be doing something wrong because it's literally 28.5 times faster in windows. It looks like that base score is coming from the cpu slot.
