    Just done a fresh install and am going to try out the 5.92 beta SMP.

    Has anyone running it noticed any improvement in PPD or is it just more stable than the older client ?

    No real noticeable PPD improvement. I think the main fix is they change the MPI version used, so the client doesn't crash when the internet connection is lost anymore(great help for people on wireless connections).

    5 min. That's pretty impressive. Do you run one on the CPU and the graphics card or are you not supposed to do that. I haven't really looked into it since I've never had a capable graphics card before.

    i actually dont know...i got mine frome someone i know inside.....today it was relesed public....it dos good...it loads my cpu at 50% so i dk whats up tith that but my cards are deff being used...idk if you can set it to use all card or not the settings arent very good....but as for running the CPU & GPU client it can be done..i just havent set up the CPU 1 yet...but ith the GPU client loading 1 core if you use the smp client dont expect you use your rig....im sure you would get a smoother effect using the single core CPU client with the gpu client besides iv cranked off 6000 points in about idk 45min so im doing well ;) each one is worth a little over 3000ppd per core...and with my 9600's stock i can pull a core finish it and send in data in about 25ishmin...also just a note...ocing the grafx mem ont get you anyware...the core though will increase speed.

    Yeah, I wasn't planning on running the SMP client if I did run both, but I was curious about running the single core one.

    Just to clear things up for some of the poeple new to the GPU client(us nVidia users mainly). The GPU client always loads 1 core 100%. I don't know why exactly, but it does, and if you run the SMP client and try to use the core the GPU client is using the GPU client will grind to a halt.

    If you have a dual core processor, you can run a CPU client on the other core without problems.

    If you have a Tri or Quad core processor, you can run the SMP client on the other 2 or 3 cores you have available, but you have to set up the client properly to achieve this.

    If you want to run the SMP client on your remaining cores, you have to set the advanced options of both clients. In the advanced options there is an option to set the priority of each client. You need to set the GPU client to low and the SMP client to idle. This gives the GPU client priority over the SMP client, so it will get the single core that it needs to do work. If you don't do this, then the SMP client will take over all the cores, and the GPU client won't get any work done.

    Edit1: Unfortunately, it seems I can't run the GPU client currently because it is incompatible with Vista 64. Though I have WinXP on my 8800GS machine, so I might try that, I'm interested to compare how it performs compared to Solaris's 9600GT.

    Edit2: Well, it seems to run on Vista64 just fine, so I don't know why they claim it won't. It is doing work on my 9800GTX and says it should take ~4 hours to complete the WU.

    my PPD just skyrockerted using the modded 177.36 drivers in the tweak thread i went from 29xx/30xx to about 38xx

    [​IMG]

    @newtekie youll notice that the proteins fold at a rate of 50 before update...for example it will go from 1000 to 1050 but its a little off fahmon drops the eta by ~2min+ with every 50 completed..it really cranks through WU's
    iv done 3100/5000 in about 15min.

    It looks like it won't work on Vista64, it keeps giving EUE saying I have an Unstable Machine, even at stock settings, so I assume that is why they say it won't work on 64-bit machines.

    Compatibility gives the same result. Hopefully they add 64-bit support soon.
