Nvidia Folding Client Is Out

Recommended Posts

From http://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=3186

We're happy to roll out the beta nVidia client, it's a nice beta, and so here we go...

First and before you do anything else, LOOK OVER THE FAQ Lots of important things in there that you'll need to know if you do anything beyond run the installer and run it.

 

Drivers

You MUST use the 1.74.55 version of the drivers (with CUDA support)

You can use the even better 177.35 drivers for like double PPD (I'm getting nearly 5000 PPD on a 8800GTS - hardnrg)

 

DOWNLOAD

 

Right now only XP and Vista 32bit are supported but a Vista 64bit version is in the works (try out the modified 177.35 drivers, should work in XP/Vista x64)

 

Edit: Be sure if you run the client, to post your stats here: http://forums.overclockersclub.com/index.p...c=81431&hl=

All is not lost! I might have to get me a new graphics card B:)

 

What OSs does the new client/core support?

 

The client runs on Windows XP and Vista for now. (Linux and OSX may be a possibility in the future.)

 

Basic Requirements:

 

* a GeForce, Quadro, or Tesla card that supports CUDA card which supports CUDA (G80 or later for the most part)

* A CUDA capable driver, version 174.55 or later

* 32-bit Windows operating system, XP or newer (better Vista support coming soon); 64-bit Windows operating systems appear to currently be incompatible (We're working on this too.)

I was doing some research and it seems that using different version of display drivers affect the processing time. V177.25 claim to be quite good but in order to use them you'll need to use a modded INF.
