I have worked with overclocks that netted me 1.5 min. better tpf's and it did not get me 10K ppd. I am sure Grandpa has a chart with this all listed, we just need to hear from him.
Yes the i7 920 - 960s are still getting bigadv.
You only need the trick the client when running a less than 8 threaded/core cpu.
There is a gain from switching to native linux for bigadv (and prob smp, among others as well)
However there tends to be a more noticeable increase of pdd on the sandy bridge cpus when running linux and bigadv, Granted that increase depends on what overclock your running in the first place and which linux distro you use. (gui no gui)Edited by Lutro0 - 6/8/11 at 4:46am
