    Good numbers! Way to go team! :D

    My i7 at work is getting 60+ all weekend. :D So glad I got an i7 and not an i5 mac mini like some techs. :p

    Curious though. Two days in a row i'm around 5800 ish give or take. The pie thread isn't the place to discuss this, but hell... I thought I would generate more ppd's than that. No worries, it's the overall score that counts. TPU WCG team FTW :D

    A 4770k should get a bit more than that. However, if it's being used then the numbers are pretty good :)

    FreeDC had updated earlier, but now it's down again. Apparently the ssds are trouble, so the server has been taken down (as of 4:21) for inspection. :cry: :cry:

    @Arjai isn't going to be happy if he loses his badge again ;)

    So, what are my options for renting some WCG horsepower? Like, quad socket Xeon E5? For, like, a week.

    I will crank up the Opty-6176 server for Kreij. Might be good enough to vault us toward top 30.

    Have a look here - http://www.hpcloud.com/pricing#Compute
    You pay for the actual time you use each unit so set up 60 HP could units in Linux (takes for ever) and use them for 1 week ($300). One unit gives around 1500 PPD so 90000 PPD.

    I've checked Amazon's compute offerings and they've made my wallet cry. I built LilCrunchy (in sig) for about $300. Power usage on top of that would be a bit, of course, but it'd be considerably less expensive than that. At that price, it seems like I could build my own, albeit slightly outdated, quad socket machine and get 50-70k ppd with a ROI of ~1 month. Power is somewhat cheap in Washington anyways.

    WCG is, by nature, heavily multithreaded, so per-thread performance isn't terribly important. I'd take an Army of Atoms, a Plethora of Pentiums, or Oodles of Opterons at lower performance as long as the price is right.

    Edit: A Collection of Celerons. An Assembly of ARMs. A Cluster of Cores. A Drove of Durons. A Community of Cyrixs.

    WUs in WCG are single-threaded. A WU per core.
