I started back on it again last week, and just made it back into the top 1k for the MR team. However, I don't like running my systems 24/7, so I expect my contribution will slow down. Not sure what kind of performance I am getting.

I am running a C2D mini that I use a home server 24/7, and getting good SMP performance out of it, and a C2D MBP during most of the week since I got an EEE that I take with me to work instead every day.

I requested to get my work machines online, but that has not gotten anywhere so far.

I have a plan

everyone go out and buy a new folding rig and maybe we could keep bitGAMER at bay for a while longer, as it is we have about 30 more days at #58 position which we have held for most of this year. Oh well, maybe not The good news is in about 84 days we should overtake Portugal@Folding which will put us back in the 58th spot

Any idea what a 12 core 2.93Ghz would yield on a 2685 bigadv?
100k PPD?

I'm not sure. I think a 2.66 12 core would get about 80-85k ppd though

That's amazing. I feel like I'm doing something wrong…. my 2.4 macbook is only getting ~500 points per WU (which takes ~30 hours to complete!).

are you just running the client in system preferences? or are you running the terminal client?

I have it running from system prefs, then I control it through inCrease.

Are you able to give the client any parameters? Like do you type in -smp or -verbosity 9?

Do you have a passkey?
Do you meet the bonus requirements? 30 hours is a little slow but not that much.

No to both of you. I simply installed the client that goes in the system preferences pane, then inCrease.

You need a passkey:

http://folding.stanford.edu/English/FAQ-passkey

then you need to fold 10 SMP units with 80% return rate.
Very easy to do.

I would advise you to use the terminal client. It's really not hard. Then you can give parameters like -advmethods so you'll get a bonus with your passkey

Sounds good. My only question about the passkey is whether I can use it on my ps3 as well. I want to combine the ps3 and macbook under the same point total.

I'll uninstall inCrease after it finishes the 3 day WU I have now. Apparently it's worth 1500 points or so. Project 6041.

Thanks for the insight from you two. I really appreciate it!

you can have your username on the ps3 and macbook. i'm not sure about the passkey - i haven't tried putting in my passkey on my ps3.

i'm now curious as to what computers are able to get a bonus with the new smp units? i've got an old white macbook that might be worth a try - 2.16 ghz C2D. its not that fast, but maybe i can get something out of it

Not doing anything wrong you just dont have the high power (read expensive) hardware that some have but your contribution is still appreciated.
