Could be.  Some say these are hard to get, so it depends mostly or your needs/wants/budget and confidence.  Their waranty & personal history does it for me.  They know it & is why they have the great reputation

I'd personally stick with an eVGA 680, preferably signiature 2 model... If you can get it.  Best Warranty & parts binning IMO, and the 680 full part is preferable if you can stretch the budget.  My own 680 is a reference Gigabyte one, which runs very well too, though the warranty conditions are tigh

Any ideas how easy one could get a 2 slot 680? Would Palit be an option? Or would it be better to get a 670?

680 currently doing 6 tasks at a time.. No idea if that's optimal, but it looks cool  ;D

KWSN OS X Multi-Beam v7 bench
« on: May 29, 2011, 12:33:42 AM »
This is the bench test for OS X systems, will test both v6 and v7 apps.

To use this program, you will need to use the terminal.

1. Place the reference app into the REF_APP folder.
2. Place the test app into the APPS folder.
3. Place the test WU into the TestWUs folder.
4. Open Terminal and type cd, then drag and drop the "KWSN-OSX-bench-MBv7_v2.1.05" folder onto the terminal and hit return.
5. Drag the Benchmark file onto the terminal and hit return.
6. After it finishes, zip up the testData folder and post it to the proper site.

Also attached is the v6 test work units.

Now attached is the requick.wu for use with the v7 apps.

New update...

Adding a new version of KWSN-OSX-bench-MBv7_v2.1.06. Changes to v2.1.05 :
+Proper cleanup of working directory when using OpenCL GPU apps.
+Reads commandline with options for unique named applications from file "comlineoptions.txt"
+New version of comparison tool rescmpv5_d used and added
+Smaller "cosmetic" changes to terminal screen output and log-file
+CPU-Info at end of log-file adapted to newer CPU-types

Also the complete sources of rescmpv5 with Makefiles for Windows, Linux and OSX are added as a separate download.

If you want to test on different GPUs you could use the "-device x" (where x=0,1,2,...) commandline-option, which is usually set by the BOINC-client on *nix OS'es. Just be aware that only the name of the app is relevant for unique identification, not the commandline-options.
