I just wrote a simple program that will estimate your WCG PPD. Rather than having to ask "What do you think my CPU will do" you can now estimate it for yourself! CPU support list for the most recent version; if you're looking for something older look at the hidden material below: First Gen Intel Core (Nehalem) Second Gen Intel Core (Sandy Bridge) Third Gen Intel Core (Ivy Bridge) Fourth Gen Intel Core (Haswell) AMD Phenom II First Gen AMD FX (Bulldozer) Second Gen AMD FX (Piledriver) Multi-socket systems are implicitly supported; just enter the total number of cores present across all CPUs. To use the latest version of the WCG PPD Estimator, download the zip file and extract; then run the ppdEstimator.bat file. This estimator requires Java to be installed on your computer. While this is perhaps sub-optimal, it means that it will be much easier for me to release a Linux or OS X version of it. I'll try to work on those. Disclaimer: All estimates given are estimates, actual results will be different. PPD will vary by as much as 50% between two consecutive days due to the nature of the WCG validation process. The most current version of the Estimator is the Estimator2014.zip file attached to this post. Planned Features Linux Support: both for the Estimator and for estimating the PPD of systems running Linux Support for running at less than 100% load If you have suggestions for what I could or should do better, please don't hesitate to offer them! OLD MATERIAL, NOT USEFUL except for reference: Spoiler I just wrote a simple program that will estimate your WCG PPD for the following CPUs: Core 2 Duo (Conroe) Core 2 Quad (Kentsfield) Core 2 Duo (Wolfdale) Core 2 Quad (Yorkfield) Core i3/Core i5 (Clarkdale) Core i5 (Lynnfield) Core i7 (quad-core) Core i7 (hex-core) Athlon 64X2/Athlon X2 Phenom I X3 Phenom I X4 Athlon II X2 Athlon II X3 Athlon II X4 Phenom II X2 Phenom II X3 Phenom II X4 Phenom II X6 *New with V. 0.5.9b: PPD Estimates for Core i3/i5, Athlon II and Phenom II X6 Currently there is no support for Core i5/Core i7 and older Athlon 64/Athlon 64x2 CPUs, if I can get PPD number for those CPUs I will include an estimator for them. PPD estimates for the Phenom I CPUs are probably not nearly as accurate as those of the other CPUs, I had no actual number to base them off of so I just looked at other benchmarks comparing Phenom I and Core 2. PPD estimations are given as credits reported by the WCG website and as points reported by BOINC, BOINCstats, and Free-DC I wrote this program in C++ on Windows 7 x64, but I have also tested it on Windows 7 x32 and Windows XP x32, and encountered no errors. If you do have issues, please tell me so I can resolve them. Source code may be available at some point in the future. EDIT: I've updated the program and it now runs on systems without VS2008/VS2010, if the first version didn't work please try this version. EDIT 10/25/10: Two new versions are out with support for new CPUs. I'm sorry it's taken so long, but Athlon II, Phenom II X6, and the Core i3/Core i5 CPUs are now supported. 'WCG PPD Estimator.exe' is my first-generation C-based text-only version, 'Estimator_GUI.exe' is FordGT90Concept's GUI version. WCGPPDEstimator_2013.zip contains the newest addition of the PPD estimator and the .bat file to run it. Linux support is coming at some point, but no ETA EDIT AGAIN! (14 June 13) I'm collecting more data and will be releasing a version with support for SB/IVB & AMD FX before too long! Haswell too, if I can get the numbers for it EDIT 23 June 2013 This latest update is way, way overdue, and for that I sincerely apologize. However, I finally have a current-gen estimator for Intel Sandy & Ivy Bridge and AMD FX (1st & Second Generation) and the Trinity/Richland APUs.
