Re: Broke down and ordered me a GTX 670

APR?

Moved to 2 CUDA instances...

You should be getting more than that. I'm getting 33-37k per day with my setup and I've only got a 570.

How many CPU instances are running? I don't have an i7 (AMD here)...

APR = Average processing rate
It can be found on your computer's application details.

If you check my computers, those numbers are pure gpu as my cpu is crunching for WCG.

Just over 26,900 RAC with 2 GPU instances and 4 CPU so this is the sweet spot for me....

I'm running 24/7 (although I do game from time to time) and my I-7 2600k running at stock speed (4 physical and 4 hyperthreaded cores going 100%) with a slightly overclocked 570 is getting me 33-36k per day. I was getting 36-39k with a 4.4GHz overclock on that box before a screwed up bios update from Intel disabled overclocking on my board. Then again I peaked at #3 RAC in SETI for single GPU machines back in May of this year so my experience may be skewed.

27k seems really light for a 670 if you're running it 24/7. The CPUs don't crunch as much as they used to when you compare them to what the GPU is putting out. I'm thinking that you should be around 35k or higher with a 670 if you're running 24/7.

running 24x7 with light gaming when I shut it off but that is only a couple times per week. I am certain with a i7 I would get another 5K per day fairly easily but the only way to really know the output by the cards is to turn off the CPU work and just do the GPU and see the difference.

Running AP(astropulse) on GPU will give you that bump on RAC.

Another thing is that, your running XP 32bit. You might want to upgrade that XP x64 or Win7 x64.

I would like to do Win7 but...... I have things I would rather spend money on first. I still have not paid off the card.

The reason you are seeing lower is because the 670 is actually WORSE at computing than the 5xx series due to Nvidia optimizting what is on the card for gaming and gimping the card for processing.

This was to prevent people from just buying 3-4 GTX580's and getting double the workload finished of one $2000 card made for that kind of work.

Irrelevant for SETI as the project doesn't use FP64.
