Anyone had any TDR

Anyone had any TDR errors? 

"TDR is the Timeout, Detection, and Recovery component in Windows. What happens is the Graphics Display driver for the installed graphics card stops responding. When this happens, windows will stop and restart the driver to fix the problem.The most common reason for this issue is that the graphics device is being overloaded or used beyond its capabilities."

I'm running 3 WU's on a stock Vega 56 and I've had this error a few times.

Running the current AMD drivers 17.11.1

Anyone still using a Vega 56

Anyone still using a Vega 56 (undervolted) here? Which run times can one expect with these?

According to my notes from

According to my notes from february:
~ 11:45, 2 WUs at once, -20 % PL

Thanks, would you remember

Thanks, would you remember how much the card consumed at -20% PL?

The complete computer ~240 W

The complete computer ~240 W wall power, ~65-70 W for the pc.

I'm running a Vega 56, link to host tasks.
It's set to -25% power limit through AMD GlobalWattman and running x3 FGRPB1G at a time, elapsed time is around 16 min/task. It's also running 2 CPU tasks on a i7 3770K @ 4.2 GHz.

GPU-Z reports ~166 W for the GPU. I don't have a watt meter plugged in at the moment so can't tell what the complete system uses. I believe the GPU was reported at about 215-220 W without the power limit.

Thanks both! Yes if Einstein

Thanks both! Yes if Einstein is announced for the Pentathlon I'm considering adding a Vega 56, which are relatively cheap lately. I have an RX580 right now and wanted to replace it with AMD Navi, but it's only released later this year.

I don't really want to run a 200W card 24/7 (next to the GTX1060 and the R7 1700, summer is coming!), so most likely the Vega would be a temporary adventure.

The RX560 is a fine card, if

The RX560 is a fine card, if you are looking to save power & money you could dual card but hey (your bux)

I like my 560 & the 580 is even better right :-)

Umm, no thanks. I already

Umm, no thanks. I already have an RX580 (Einstein) and a GTX1060 (GPUGrid) in the same computer and can't use the 3rd PCIe full length slot. I need more power, not less ;-)

So Einstein became the GPU

So Einstein became the GPU Project of this years Pentathlon, Vega 56 ordered and arriving tomorrow, exciting!
