Happens all the time.

Yes Linux does boost your PPD when you switch to it, but we are talking about native Linux.
Running Linux in a VM means you are using your resources to run 2 operating systems which isn't the best way for increasing your PPD.

Those that have less than the required core/threads do this to bypass a requirement to get bigadv.

i mean, i am testing it in Linux from my Win7 for now, if successful, I will switch all my other folding machines to Linux.

That doesn't change that you won't see the boost while running a VM. Try booting Linux off of a USB drive instead of your normal HDD. This will allow you to run native Linux with your current hardware, without wiping your HDD.

Ok, but 3400PPD is still way too low for a Linux in Win7.
Anyhow, since this is my main system, i will stick with Win client.
Now that I have figured out to run on my other AMD 6 core, I will be switching my other core i7 to Linux in the coming days.
Learned so much about Linux now.

True, but no point in fixing it since its better to do native windows or native linux.

Didn't Grandpa give us a 1.5 min gain in the tpf on a 6901 when running a i7-930 at 4.0GHz in native linux compared to native windows,good but not all that great. The real boost come from running a Sandy Bridge at 4.5GHz+ in native linux, then you will see your 34,000 ppd(mainly from the high clock speed). I have not pulled one in a while but are -bigadvs (not the beta bigadv's) still comming for 4core/4thread cpu's?

Every second you are able to shave off the time might bring you closer to a higher bonus multiplier!

Yes, there are still bigadv units for 4/4.

No, there are not bigadvs for 4/4... you have to install linux and trick it to think that you have 8 threads before you can get a bigadv. This works for the 6 core amds and 2nd gen i5's only... 1st gen i5's and 4 core phenom 2's can't handle bigadv...

I gained about 10k going from W7 to Ubuntu with my 2600k. Like others said before, any tpf gains is nice since is free. Your not spending a dime to get higher ppd.
