    I went to check on my dedicated WCG rigs, and I'm pleasantly surprised by what I saw:
    [​IMG]
    Stuttgart, my 2GHz Pentium DC is somehow pulling nearly 950 PPD (Windows 7 x64)
    [​IMG]
    Wurttemberg, a 2.8GHz C2D is pulling about 1150 PPD (Windows 7 x64). I would have actually suspected the PPD here to be higher, given that it's clocked nearly 50% higher than the PentDC (and is a Penryn-6M CPU vs a Penryn-1M)

    Also, both systems have an uptime of around 2 weeks (16.5 days on W, 13.5 days on S) :rockout:

    I'm getting a nice boost from that 9th thread running on my FX-8150 :D
    [​IMG]
    A lot of the increase is from the gpu betas we got a few days back but the ppd keeps going up and staying up due to the 9th thread running :)

    That's a pretty sizable boost! Are you getting 9 WUs running consistently, or just part-time?

    My A6 looks like it was settling on 1k before the betas came. I really hope it does a bit more than 1k PPD. :S

    I feel like it should, if I can get 1k PPD from a 2GHz dual-core you should be able to get more than that from a 2.1-2.4GHz triple core :)

    As it isn't entirely dedicated, it probably won't show it's full capabilities, but I doubt it will go much above 1500 PPD. And it's running at 2,4 GHz. :p

    I'd say you should be able to get 1.4-1.8k PPD easy :toast:

    Its official, all cruncher minus the 2600K is up for sale. Everything including PSU's and video cards.

    Got the green light from the wife on the truck fund so I will make an official FS thread tomorrow but crunchers will get discount pricing.

    this is a rough estimate at this point.

    say 225$ shipped for the I7-920/mobo/ram
    135$ shipped for the I3-530/mobo/ram

    PSU's I will have to figure out prices.

    Phenom II combo is 135$ shipped cpu/mobo/ram

    IBM Thinkpad T60 (C2D, 2gb ram, ATI x1400, 320GB HDD, Wifi/bluetooth, biometeric scanner,) 150$ or 200$ with windows 7

    WM8650 Android tablet 7inch rooted with modroid rom. 50$

    Rough list but I have to come close to clearing 1K with crunchers/laptop/tablet/other random stuff

    say 30$ shipped each for the water coolers

    some prices are shipped some are not.

    I had the same in april or may on Fx-8120 (0.40 CPU/1.00 GPU). I thought it was kind of Beta.

    They claimed it was error in the work unit and fixed it last week. Went through the last one yesterday so it's back to 8 cores again. :(

    I hope they figure out how to turn that error into a feature at some point.... it was nice getting a nearly free 10% boost in output :D

    Oh and Welcome Back!!! :toast:

    Yes, I read about the project mistake. I do hope for fixing the issue too. But I still think that this is not a mistake, but the tasks, specially optimized for the GPU. Otherwise, why the results are valid? It is difficult to hope that this is kind of HT for AMD :laugh:

    And thank you, Norton!:toast:

    Edit:
    BTW, I almost forgot, when FX worked 9 task, the eighth core was slower.

    Would be very interesting if WCG researchers could figure out how to utilize Bulldozer/Piledriver cores with Radeon Stream Processors to build virtual CPU cores for their calculations ;)

    Imagine a desktop PC running 50, 100, 200 work units at a time :D

    1024 WU on your HD7850+8 CPU cores:D
    In general, it can be a chance for APU.

    i7-870 is finally back online with higher VCORE. Running 3.9GHz @ 1.34v in BIOS which translates to 1.38v due to LLC. Hopefully I don't have to raise it again as it is quite hot at those settings.

    KieX is a great guy! I have yet to put up my FS thread but I have made a template in word as I pull machines down and take pictures but it will need to go quick. I am shooting for 800-1000$ for 3 machines, laptop, tablet, and more.

    Hey guys good news :D

    From a french website: Source: PCInpact

    at the IDF (I don't know if TPU saw it), Haswell would consume 2,25 times less energy than ivy bridge at same performance.. THis seems to be for idle, let's see for full load, that would make some nice crunchers :D
