    It's been a long time, but the 1080 is fired up and I should hit the first lowly milestone of 15mil later today.

    Good stuff.

    I'm lucky enough to have been able to do some serious folding in the second half of 2019, and will continue to contribute as much as possible in 2020. However, I am going to have to downscale the operation a bit over the coming months so that I can take the family on holiday a bit later in the year.

    Therefore I'll be offloading some of my hardware. I'd like to give first dibs (and preferential pricing) to anyone on the team who wishes to bolster their output. I haven't quite decided how I'll do this yet, but I'd imagine I'll be able to offer entire standalone rigs that can simply be plugged in and fold 24/7. Alternatively, I'll break them down and sell the components separately.

    If anyone reading has any interest then drop a post in here and we'll have an open discussion in a new thread. It would be nice if we can maintain our output as much as possible, I'm mindful that I'm currently producing about 40% of the team's daily points!

    Happy folding for 2020!

    I'll be interested. I'm going to set up my 1060 in a separate rig but if I can get something beefier then that'll be great!

    There'll be choices between 1080Ti, Titan X Pascal, 2060, 2070 or 2070 Supers, so once you have a budget in mind we'll have a chat.

    I assume PPW is better on the 20xx series than the 1080Ti, is the right?

    Marginally worse on the 2060, roughly the same on the 2070, better on the 2070 Super/2080 and over twice as much on the 2080 Ti. The Titan X is on par with a 2070 Super most of the time.

    On the verge of just tipping 50M at somepoint today.
    Think might have to look into a dedicated rig and another gpu.
