Maybe Nvidia was watching this thread, I just read they're releasing a GT 1010 :lol:
I could see picking up a 1010 to replace my 710 I have sitting sitting around as a spare. The old 710 has gotten used more than I expected, and the 1010 is certain to be faster and hopefully more efficient.

Re: F@H Challenge thread, 2021

Where are you getting all these 3070s? I can’t even land video cards rolling into microcenter at 4am

Re: Low power video card

Hmm, I have a fairly large collection of AGP video cards and sli 12mb voodoo 2s. Perhaps I’m sitting on something valuable

Re: Low power video card

A number of motherboards will let you run headless (no video card). I have a GeForce 710 as a spare that I can toss into a headless system for when I need to troubleshoot.

Re: Low power video card

I’m guessing that the older the card, with the older manufacturing process, the higher the idle / 2d power draw. Should check idle power of something like a 1650.

Re: F@H Challenge thread, 2021

For a contest, I could switch back to fold for [H] like I used to ages ago to put some more points on the [H] side. The problem is I’m just not worth very many points until I can secure a 3080 or two - 1x 1080ti isn’t what it used to be. My 3am trips to microcenter netted me a processor, and confirm...
