    Thought I'd start a thread where we can all add news tidbits that might be of interest to our Folding Team 3446.

    and I thought I'd start off by noting that PG sez that the stats server is back online so perhaps we'll see updates on the next cycle :)

    BA changes...

    Thanks for pointing that out Christian!

    Not a lot of notice, esp. for all the folks who have been buying 4p socket F machines lately (and I was tempted too -- good thing I didn't). What does that mean for the 2P E5 machines I wonder? Because it's not all cores, it's also clock speed…

    2P with 2680v2 should be ok, that's 40 core with HT, but become dangerous low-end; only BA for [H] :eek: (but let's discuss outside this news collector)

    yes, quite. anyone wanna buy a 4P? just kidding. we don't know how the QRB on regular SMP will be at that point. will keep running it for the time being. i might have run out of electricity cash by the summer anyhow…

    new BA GPU units

    ...and that's BA for Big A** -- they're 9401s and are worth 13,000 base points...

    it'll take my 7970 GPU most of a day to do one (@ 8:24 TPF) but it'll be worth about 55K points :)
