So what's it going to take to fold -bigadv now? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
If the core requirements still applies (and as I understand it should) you'll get the work with that but now there's no way for us to say if it will clear it in time. Just as Grandpa I feel that a if a upgrade is present I wouldn't go for the minimum. If I were to build a rig now it makes more sense to me if I go with say a quad G34 board and only load it up with one CPU to start with and add CPUs as you could afford them. High initial cost, but it feels it will pay of in the long run.

that's correct GrandPa.

seen how 16 core Interlagos at 2.2 Ghz is only doing 7.5 points at CineBench 11.5(32 cores did 15 points in a 2P system), its funny how an OC SandyB-E(4.5) 6core/12T is doing 14 points on the same BenchMark (twice as powerful)

this is to Pande. Core count is Useless in this day and age, core means nothing, performance. a 6 core SandyB-E at stock speed is doing 10 points yet 32 cores at stock speed is doing 15? rolleyes.gif

VirtualBox and SandyB-E will let people with "6" core do BigAdv...thumb.gif

I know the SR-2 with minimun cpus will make the core requirement,that is not the question. The question is will it be able to be clocked high enough to make the time? I can understand an answer of "we don't know" because we really do not know how far back they cut the time. The time issue is just so much of an unknown BUT to go so far as to say you need 48 cores working at 1.6 to safely say you will make it does not help narrow things down much.

Here is my thoughts...
people are doing work units that required 8 or even 12 "cores" on a 4 core cpu. Is it really going to be the end of the world if they extend the requirement to 16 "cores"? Don't you think a high clocked 8 "core" cpu could take on those units, just as these quads have been doing?

I have a quad at 4.8 and a hex at 4.3
I am not going to run around like it is the end of the world yet. I would bet they can compare to 16 cores at some low speed like 1.6Ghz
Perhaps this is going to knock out the 4 and 6 "core" CPUs that have been folding bigadv...

Well us Budget Bigadv folders need to find another way to do it since we dont' have the kind of money for 4p systems, my i5 2500k was doing just fine with them bigadv wus. SandyB-E K and VirtualBox is going to be my ticket. biggrin.gif

Waiting on hoth17s results on his SB-E to compare these. About the same price range

If you use those 16 core numbers the Gulftowns at 4.2Ghz and Sandybridge-e will still make the deadline and some of the 2600k's but the rest will be sol
