I've spread the word on every forum I belong to. F'ing YAY!


Great job! But I've found one problem: It won't use more than 30-50 % of the GPU according to Catalyst Control Center. I'm using a HD3870 and an AMD Athlon X2 4400+ @ 2,6gHz.

hello, i wana know wath the meni dots on the earth ar.


Aarthas> please see my post here : http://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?p=17611#p17611

You'll understand why it doesn't use all your GPU ;)


I suspect for a highend card, such as a HD2900XT or 3870, you need a Core 2 intel processor clocked over 3.2Ghz, to see a GPU utilization of greater than 80-90%.


Please Read the FAQ!

It has a lot of good info. For instance, the FAQ mentions how a high end GPU can get better performance from a faster processor, and vice versa.

Like Vijay said, Early Beta testing. Lot's of room for tweaking and improvements to come. :)

Please post client feedback in the Folding Forum. Thanks.


I own a ATI 2600HD (Asus) and get a error message : At present, only ATI Radeon HD 26xxx GPUs supported..


I've installed the new GPU2 client and

[23:24:04] ASUS EAH3850 Series detected
[23:24:04] At present, only ATI Radeon HD 2xxx/3xxx and ATI FireGL Vx6xx GPUs supported.
You may wish to consider running our standard client,
which you can download at folding.stanford.edu.


Please HELP !


The device detection issues are usually caused by the vendor specific drivers. Try to install the latest Catalyst drivers from the AMD/ATI site.


All please note the GPU (and PS3) threads in the folding forum... http://foldingforum.org/index.php

The forums won't let me register, and I have an extremely difficult time viewing them... I prolly average about 15 connection timeouts to 1 page actually loading.

How much is the average WU worth (one that's 5000 steps)? I am running an Athlon64 X2 6400+ (3.2GhZ) with Radeon HD 3870 X2 and for 12 hours I only seem to have racked up roughly 200 points between 4 finished WUs... Something strikes me as very wrong about this... I figured for 12 hours I should have at least doubled that, right?


I'm owning two 3870 and a Phenom 9850 BE.
So I read the FAQ but I'm not sure about how to fold on both GPUs.
So far I think it's necessary to disable CrossfireX but when copying the folder and renaming a shortcut I get a warning that some .dll can't be found.

I'd be pleased if you release a more detailed step-by-step how-to fold on two GPUs :)

btw: I'm using 6.11 beta3 systray client (is there a cmd client, too?)



Can't use GPU2 client with Mobile HD 2600!


Hi. I have an Radeon 3870X2, and just wondering what this does to my card?. Better fps in Crysis or what?



My PC sometimes crash /black screen grey lines/, if FH working.
C2D 3GHz, and 3870.


I've the same problem with my mobile radeon 2600 (HP Compaq 8510p) and I get the same error message : At present, only ATI Radeon HD 26xxx GPUs supported

The download link seems to be broken.
Is there anyway to fix it?
