Trying to verify here, BOINC uses CPU only?

    Just making sure I'm setting things up right.

    Gotta get my 60k points in 60 days!

    Anyone know what various chips get for points in this?

    Yep, BOINC is only CPU

    Here's some rough data:
    P4 HT / Athlon 64 --- 200-300 PPD
    Pentium D / Athlon 64 X2 300-500 PPD
    Core 2 Duo --- 500-900 PPD
    Core 2 Quad --- 1.2k -- 2K PPD (2k only if overclocked)
    i7 (HT enabled) -- up to 4K, depending on overclock

    There are a couple of projects that are BOINC GPU related, here is one;

    There are a couple of others, Seti is one I think and some that are trying to get GPU crunching up and running.

    I meant to say WCG is only CPU :banghead:. I saw that BOINC kept trying to get CUDA WUs for my 9300, but WCG didn't have any (no surprise here)

    Also, the Seti project uses GPUs.
