    I think that a single rig folding with a GPU client will make a great difference for you PVTCaboose1337 :toast:

    Long term speaking, your PPD will have a good boost and you will save in electricity. :D

    Since yesterday, thats it when i started using F@H, im getting only 511 points cores. It takes about a hour for the card to calculate every core ( i measured that t progresses 1% every 1.10minutes or so ). Will i get any other cores with higher/lower points value ?

    I'm only getting 225 point WUs for my CPU using normal console client (SMP was fast, but the due date of each WU was too close for me to get it done).
    They run very slowly, is there a way to get a higher point WU? I remember the 768 point WUs ran at a slow speed as well, but I'd prefer them.

    MightyG80 thanks for joining our fight :toast:

    Yes, you will. The most common GPU Client WUs at the moment are:

    353pt
    384pt
    420pt
    511pt

    Where the 353pt is the fastest to fold. :D

    will the SMP client get a WU done on time using a AMD 5000+BE@3ghz? If not i am just wasting money trying...

    I'm running a smp client on my E1200@1800mhz for 1 month now and every client finish in time so i don't see any reason why your amd@3000mhz can't finish a wu in time
    p_o_s_pc says thanks.

    You have potential for more.

    Folding 24/7 you should get 6~7K per GPU core. I don't know what's the core7 SMP ppd but I guess minimum 4K PPD. I get 1.9K PPD with an E8400.

    Yeah I have seen these SMP work units lately as well.

    Running the -advmethods flag will download beta units etc earlier, so although the 420pt units are better than the 511pt at the moment..if a worse point unit is released then you will get it earlier running the flag.

    So really can be a two edged sword, it really depends on how the new units preform compared to older ones.

    This is how I read it...correct me if I am wrong!!

    You may have to wait on it finishing the current work unit and downloading the new core
