Last week Stanford University released a beta version of its Folding@Home client that runs on ATI's Radeon X1900 and X1950 series graphics cards and today Legit Reviews takes a look at the new client. LR covers why to fold, how to fold on your GPU and how to speed up GPU folding by running 3D clock speeds on your video card. To top it all off LR announces a contest that will give out a couple of ATI Radeon X1900 series to a couple lucky people.
When we used ATI Tool to run 3D Clocks at all times the folding client was able to run fine under the increased frequencies and was able to complete the steps faster. The steps were able to complete in six minutes versus the eight minutes that we were getting when the card was clocked at 2d speeds. By running 3D Clocks we noted a 25% increase in folding performance, which is significant if you are going for the most points possible.
