Nice post; awesome content!
Be careful on inserting this (or any G34 chip) into the socket. Once you pull that restraining lever, it is either a good install or a piece of silicon jewelry.

What's the deal with folding these days? CPU's, GPU's?

What sort of PPD would an R7 2700 get, or RX 570?

I had a RX 570 folding last month and it was getting well over 200K PPD. It was an MSI card that ran quietly. I hope that the new owner will run folding on it as well!

For the 2700, no idea. I recall some projects did very well in PPD if there was tons of threads (not sure if 16 threads is enough for that...?).

p.s. I use on idle/high setting - so it only folds when I'm not on the computer plus with quiet fans ... quite nice for me!
Keep folding!

Cool! Let us know how it goes.

For threads you can set maximum. Can do it manually in the config file. Also can use predefined setting such as if set to low power it uses half the threads. I took a quick look via google and it seemed to vary significantly by project, some low as 40k and other projects more than twice that.
Note If use GPU folding, that needs its own thread.
Keep folding!

Haven't folded in nearly 5 years. Curious about this new V7 client and the web viewer. We shall see! The interwebz agrees with your 40k-80kppd estimates.

Gonna go CPU only. Mine is silent under full load, and my RX570 needs a complete tear-down and dusting before i throw that kind of workload at it.

Yikes!

Running my R7 2700 (non-X) at stock speeds/voltages in Linux Mint with the 4.19 kernel and getting the following performance on CPU-folding only:

A4 cores are 80-95kppd
A7 cores are 105-125kppd
