Re: Bragging Thread

Woohoo! I just broke back into top 10 producers on the team!

On a 2.4GHz. core I7 laptop, a 2.2GHz. core I3 laptop, and a 3GHz. dual core Xeon all running the Chrome client when the systems are not being used for other things.

Really kinda sad if you think about it... :cry:

Re: GPU2 CLIENT IS HERE!!!! THIS IS NOT A JOKE!!

One the machine at home, I've overclocked the 3870 to 832 core, 1141 memory and FahMon is showing 1600 ppd on the GPU. Like the P4D, on the E3110 the GPU activity bops around between 40% and 80%, and the core speed on the GPU bounces back and forth, but between ~700MHz. and 832MHz.

You are correct, GPU2 has to be run on 2000 or 3000 series Radeons. I can verify first hand that you can't "round up" the model numbers and run GPU2 on the x1950. I hope it doesn't seem like I'm freaked out about points. At this point, I understand it's early in GPU2's life. But I am tryin...

It really depends on what else you do with the machine. At home I put the E3110 in my gaming rig, and Q6600's in my more 'serious' boxes. I opted for the E3110 since the additional MHz. have a bigger impact on games than the additional cores would. Plus the E3110's doing 3.6GHz. without even breakin...

Just for the timeouts. The WU's on the standard client tend to have much longer deadlines than those on the SMP client.

I'm happy to run in my squeaky little wheel, and return a WU here and there. And I still feel pretty gerbilicious even though I'm just a lone gerbil folder.

I'd hate to think that amongst all of us gerbils, some were more, uh, gerbilish than others.
