    P8102 WU's run faster than the P8101 I was getting. There is a 4p Xeon rig that pulls 970K ppd on the same WU with ES CPU's, but cost 3x what my rig does. I'm content with my choice.

    Yeah, with those ~$9k you could get three of the Opteron setups for 2mil+ PPD :eek:
    And what a sight that would be too :D

    That must be a considerably faster WU--is there any reason for the huge difference?

    It's just like the GPU WU's. Some produce more PPD than others.

    the intel cpu is clocked higher, compute more with each clock cycle, has more memory bandwith and a single intel rig can almost get to the 1 million ppd magic number.

    However, it is WAY too expensive for the simple human beings we are...

    As for the 8101 vs 8102, i see a little difference with my sr-2, and the bonus get exponential as you drop the tpf.

    Oh, I'm aware of the difference of Intel vs AMD. I'm still astonished that one rig can do nearly 1mil PPD.,

    Imagine what could be done if you could put 8 of those Xeons or Buck's Opterons in one setup! :eek:

    My string of 8102's ended and I picked up the good ol' P6901. Getting 550K PPD and the next WU will dump @ 5pm EST for 181K. So far today's total will be 596K. Who knows what WU I will get next..., but tomorrow should be a double dump day as well.

    Guy's on [H] are talking about Intel 8p rigs(E7-8870) and setting the price around $12K, but the question is will the client scale correctly with 80/160 cores/threads.

    LOL, I was surfing ebay and came accross this:

    ....and it's even a refurbished unit:roll:. Hurry guy's, you only have 4 days left to bid.:nutkick:

    $200,000.00 Vietnamese dong would be equivalent to $9.60 US dollars. I'll take 2 of them! I know I got a 20 spot laying around here somewhere.:rockout:

    All of my GPUs have pulled down 5757pt WUs and I'm pulling 52.5k PPD across the trio :toast:

    Now I have to resist the urge to get a third GTX460 :rolleyes:

    Ultimately I'm sure it will be, but it's going to have to wait for a bit. I'll have to build/sell another C2D to fund it. Perhaps by late October :)

    Should be a good day for the team. We are @ 1 Mil points within 3 updates and I will dump another 353K at the midnite update. Very nice work gentlemen!:respect:

    Part of this is a result of the 12AM EOC update not happening...so we got a double-update worth of points at 3AM. Still should be pretty amazing :rockout:

    1.8 million anyone? :toast:

    I think I could be in for a 48k day today :toast:

    Well, think I timed it so my 480 arrives on friday, which is also my birthday! I'm just hoping I can find a 2nd one in a month for less than $200can, which is what this one cost me after shipping and taxes. Looks like with still maturing drivers, the 480 actually is pretty much equal to my sli 285s. Kind of sad actually.... I might start part-time folding until I get the 2nd 480, not quite ready to throw my 285s out to pasture yet.
    Edit: just realized my Silverstone can do 900w peaks, I shouldn't have a problem with 2 480s at stock....

    Might try a test fire of my folding box tonight with a 260 and a 9800gtx.. if I'm feeling good about things, might start going overnight with 2x285s and 1 260 + my xeon i7. Until I get my 2nd 480.. I'm pretty adamant about that! I used to have 4 260s.. only have one left now.. did sell one though. But I want backup cards at all times to feel safe, I have burnt out at least one 260 with folding, and in the weird past I lost 2 280s as well. Did I mention I need to get another 480? Next month, I'll pay in one payment for any good used 480. $150can used, which is really fair.
    Edit: arg, squeaked my 260 only so far in it, just realized I have to move a bunch of hds before the new card comes... pain in butt, but it's test folding... CamelJock is alive!

    Finally had a good folding day after consolidating GPUs onto my Windows 7 machines (I reformatted 5 of my crunchers to Ubuntu last Friday) and the DSL internet at work going down on Monday due to a problem at the Verizon central office. Hopefully I should be maintaining 85-100K PPD on my GPUs.

    Yesterday marked my best day on record at 57.57k:
    [​IMG]
    This is unlikely to be repeated frequently, as it requires the best-possible scenario on all of my cards (a day where each GTX460 dumps 3 5757pt WUs and the GTX470 dumps 4). Most days I should average about 9 WUs.

    It was a very good day indeed and I like to see those upward spikes!

    My production will be down for a few days while I configure the 4P rig to run WCG. I'd like to see what it will do.
