What is happening? Hope it is nothing too bad.
And I can't buy a Sandy Bridge system to put the -bigadv hurt to UGN yet...

Go to Folding@home and download whichever client works best for you. There's alot of info here at TR in this forum describing what to do,certainly better than I can do for you.Most if not all these guys are better at it than me and I'm sure will answer any questions you have!

That kept repeating. Everything is running at stock speeds. I was trying to fold on a 9800 GTX+. Go figure.
I think so.astrotech66 wrote:So, download the "Windows: V6 Beta SMP2/CPU client" from the high performance clients page?
No need anymore, and no more mpicore business with WinSMP. The A3 core now spawns multiple threads within one process, and the official installation guide mentions that you can again run as a Windows service just like the old single core client days.astrotech66 wrote:Do I have to run a separate instance of the client for each core/thread that I have?
You kind of need both I think, at least I specify both. If you don't have -bigadv you will just not get the really fat ones. You also need to put "-smp 7" or "-smp 8" because the big fat tasty WUs require at least 7 threads to run. For reference my i7-875K @2.93GHz does ~20k ppd for the really fat ones. With increased clocks and higher IPC, I'm hoping you will get even better. If you are consistently doing 20k ppd you will be in our top 20 producers, easy.astrotech66 wrote:Is -bigadv the new version of the old -advmethods flag?
