Why is this the way it is now ?


my 2600k at 4500Mhz can pull out a blazing 10000/15xxxPPD IIRC and not holding back my GPU's,
but folding on anything less, then lets say a 4cores 8threads(2600k) its not worth it. as it will take more points then you will get..

I remember the CPU(before the addition of the GPU's) times with BIGadv flag etc.
why has this never been further developed or was(is) there a very obvious reason i forgot ? :oops:

thanks in advance..

BigAdv was intented for the top-notch CPUs and not many non-coorporate have the set-up they what/need any longer. CPU folding is dead for us says a man that spend 2000 EUR on chips once. Things moves on. Don't think for a minut that a core18 is not helding you back if you use the remaining free cores for folding/crunching AND use your PC at the same time. The newer core21 is less demanding on the CPU side but heats up your GPU. I had to force my ASUS 970 to 75 % last night to keep the VRM below 80 C. Ups, sidetrack but use your CPU for WCG.

Damn I do love seeing these builds. Love my 4P setups :D
It hurts knowing that they are packed away in boxes in the garage:cry:. I gotta do something with them.

Yea it sucks that CPU folding is pretty much useless. I have about 30ish Xeon cores + HT folding but combined I don't even think they're making 100k.

I know my 5930k averages around 75-85k PPD (just folding on it) but folding on 10T it gains at 45-50k PPD and the 970 I have runs around 350k PPD :rockout:

Could you also show that 350k ?
what WU is that ?

BTW CPU should be on R@H IMHO, F@H is a waste!, do to the lack of support..

He mentions a 4P rig he built to run F@H. You asked about folding with CPUs. This is off topic how?

Could you please keep it ON topic, or create your own thread.
I am being very tolerant of your behavior up to now. I PM'd you to find out what the issue is. I suggest you respond to my PM and cease this public display. Please remember who's house you are playing in.
