Core i7 930 @3.4GHz, VMware Ubuntu 11, only 3400PPD! - Page 3

post #21 of 26
What is it? are ther still bigadv WU's for hyperthreaded 4 cores (meaning 4 cores plus 4 threads)I am speaking of the i7-920-930...line of cpu's (and other like cpu's)Rat was the only thing changed that got you 10K is the OS?. 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)

OK,great thanks for clearing that up. First I will make a smp folder with a 955 in Ubuntu for practice, then the bigadv folder. I am glad my "lesson plan" can still work. We should demand a better choice in hardware monitoring apps, but as long as I have something I am good. +rep for clearing this up for me.

EDIT: I wonder how long we have with 8 core folding, by my estimation (based on how fast or slow I have seen Stanford work before), we have plenty of time.It has been so hot that I must stop and start the folding process a lot so I quit taking -bigadv work, but I get AC pretty quick so I wanted a little more time to fold -bigadv before I was a smp folder.I figure if I can not keep the work process going 24/7 I should not take the work, but that is just me.

You could start doing -oneunit folding.
