Thread: F@H: Graphical vs Console




  1. Default

    I just got the new F@H 4.00 beta graphical console, downloaded the new 65 core, and started crunching for TweakTown.

    I am using the -local -advmethods -forceasm command lines on startup.

    I was just wondering, on my system (Win XP) is there any difference between graphical/console. Peformance wise?

    I'd imagine that it would be similar to the GUI and CLI versions of SETI@home. The command line version takes a lot less time as the CPU doesn't have to process the graphics associated with the graphical version which wastes cycles.

    Welcome to the team,Fatguy3

    If your using the beta 4 console, then you want use
    -advmethods -forceSSE(for AMD). The console is faster and the way to go,you can use
    Trayit to hide the icon to the tray if you want.
    Also we have a couple of F@H threads you shoud check out.
    Anyway welcome to the team.
    Ask us if you need any help. You can get a sig. here after you send in your first WU.

    good luck and keep folding :cheers:

    Thank you for the warm welcome guys. Im sitting here at frame 364 waiting for it to finish my first W/U so I can do my reformat preparing for the new heatsink. Which I needed because Folding is really stressing out the CPU. I used to do some SETI@Home stuff, but I hated running it with games cause it killed performance. I love how I can keep this running in the BG and it doesnt hurt performace at all, nice job Stanford in adding a Lowest Priority setting. Once I do a reinstall and bench again with the new heatsink, Im gonna run some tests to see if folding hurts benchmark scores. Be a very good way to get people around these parts into this. Plus you're not just searching for aliens, you're doing something actually useful. And yes I believe in ETs, but I doubt we'll find them with radio.

    well F@H has never given me a problem with gaming, but I've never thought to leave it on during a benchmark. I'd be interested to know what the results are like.
