    OC, my GTX 260 is on an Intel Hex (6c/12t) @ 3.6Ghz as I said, it has no CPUID since it's an A0 :P

    For now it looks like the HD7770 is the card to buy, although I dont get how it can be faster than a 5870. In every other application, be...

    Ok, here are my findings so far, I'm sure many of you have noticed the same:

    There is a "GPU-part" and a "CPU-part" in current HCC GPU WUs.
    When the WU starts, GPU usage goes up (90% in my...

    Something for the stats:

    GTX 260 (600/1300/1100 core/shader/mem) takes roughly 7 minutes per WU, GPU load between 93 and 98%, 1 dedicated CPU thread full load (Intel Hex @ 3.6Ghz), BOINC 6.10.58

    That may very well be, but the controller has gone into a customer setup, so can't change that now. Here's my own setup, 2x 128GB Plextor M3 R0 on Intel RS2BL040 (LSI 9260), 128k stripe, no FP, no...

    While the 520 is a solid choice for RAID if you like fast sequential rates, I would also have a look at Marvel-based drives like the Crucial M4 or the Plextor M3/M3P offerings. Better 4k performance...

    Heres a bench I ran with 4x Raid 0 128GB M3's (not M3P) on an Areca 1882i - will test 2x R0 on an LSI 9260 later today (going into my private PC). 4K is looking good :)

    Putting the 1882 in Slot 6 worked well. Performance is now at ~1.8GB/s sequential with 4x R0, 4k qd32 values also doubled to 300-400MB/s, latency decreased. AS SSD Score went from 708 to 1500...

    Oh, but there are... Dual L5630 for example. http://ark.intel.com/products/47927
    4 Cores, 8 Threads, 40W TDP :) I have one of those too (running alone tho). Or even the L5640 which is a 60W Hex :)

    Intel 520 + LSI 9260 performance issues

    Hey folks,

    getting some really crappy results out of 4x Intel 520 240GB SSDs in R0 on an Intel RS2BL040 (= LSI 9260) Controller. I can't get over ~800MB/s sequential out of the array no matter...

    Nice. What remains of my BTC farm would sure make one hell of an impact on HCC... seeing as GPUs are way more efficient than CPUs IF you find a way to run the code on them.
