Well, JPinTO doesn't seem to want to join the effort (yet) and may be trying to gain a head start on the UGN/Fuzzhead/flybywire hunt. :o

Yes indeed. Hold fast. UGN will be back stronger than ever. :wink:

What do you mean by flybywire hunt? The "hunt" is long over. 8)

I will back off to give Fuzz a fair opportunity.

Hunting the UGN collective isn't a fair fight... but things will get interesting over the next few months! Nuf said.

The "hunt" is about you 3 racing to overtake UGN and see who gets there first. UGN ramping up production means it gives the person furthest behind a better chance of catching up.

The secret to defusing the UGN collective is to convince david00214 that he's better off putting his folding power into his own name so that he can stand on his own 2 feet rather than cowering in amongst a borg collective. :D

That's unfortunately quite true with the advent of the GPU clients. A collective of little clients no longer can keep up =(

I played a part too. I had two SMP clients down while I was testing the new GTX 280

It's the Zotac AMP'd model clocked at 700MHZ. I haven't had it long enough to really gauge it, but it got about 8k PPD yesterday. No additional OC on the shaders. Out of the box they're at 1400. I have no idea if that is stock or not. I will try getting some more out of them though soon.

I've decided Fahmon is screwed up. It was saying the GTX 280 was doing 5760ppd, but I got 8k according to EOC stats. http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/ ... =&u=280116

That's my old folding name. I use it now to test, and have a couple of work laptops that fold for the ID.

Looks like the stock speeds for other brands are 600 for the core and 1300 for the shaders.

That might explain why my card was giving me problems when I OC'd the Shaders to 1600 :)

according to the above link 5760 seems low, 8K seems high.... you could always do the time from the logs.

8k actually sounds reasonable, as my GTX260 216 with a core at 600Mhz and shaders at 1400Mhz can get about 7300ppd.

arpstorm calling the starship TRfrankenbot, come in TRfrankenbot.

Sensors indicate you are traveling at extreme warp speed in this sector and coming up fast on our aft side. What kind of engines are you folks running? According to the science computers you're going to overtake the arpstorm in about a day, as we cross the 3,000,000 point energy barrier at the edge of the galaxy. If you like, we will beam a supply of Romulan Ale into your cargo hold as you pass by. Mister Scott sends his regards to your chief engineer :D

Live Long and Prosper!

You can be part of history in helping starship TRFrankenbot achieve record speeds. While the ship is in this sector (for this month), you can fire a particle beam for an energy transfer our way of say, a few hundred thousand points of energy. That way you can boost TRFrankenbot's power level and make all the other starships tremble in the sector!

:D

arpstorm has just crossed the 3,000,000 point demarcation zone. The crew is celebrating and otherwise incapacitated. Therefore the ship is on autopilot. We'll hold back some Romulan Ale and beam it over to the USS TRFrankenbot as it passes. You've earned it! Even the power of the USS segfault7 now pales besides that of the USS TRFrankenbot. It's about time that segfault7 was humbled!

Meanwhile, In the engine room, the chief engineer has prepared a particle beam powered by a dual 9600GT GPU Folding Clients. The beam will deliver around 7000 PPD of warp power to TRFrankenbot. Let's see how fast it can really go :)

So outside of TR who would see Franky on their threat list? (besides the next 4 people in front)
Or is the idea just to 'scare' people in TR.
