Actually it would be cheaper to add the GPU's than to make up new rigs.
yes but in the article, Standford stated that it will fold 20x faster than Conroe

Just found out that the GPU score doesn't affect the "number of cores"

I just submitted a WU for my GPU and it stays 2 cores not 3

Same here. What's the big deal?

I wonder if they will add SLI based Nvidias in the future?

Quad SLi with the 7950GX2, it may have a use after all.....

Hi Mikey,

Oh no, a loop hole! ;-) I think the team competition thing will really need to be on everybody's best honor! No hiding scores with gpu's...

Thanks for the update and good luck on your gpu folding, :-)

Not a mistake.

Stanford has special WUs for GPU folding. They're 220 points each, benchmarked differently than the other WUs.

If we would get 'normal' WUs for the GPU, our point production would skyrocket! I think Stanford deliberatily limited points for GPUs to avoid 'unfair' competition.

Mikey: although your GPU does not seem to report, I think for reasons of fairness, you should count the GPU as a folding core.

Didn't you have trouble with one of the cores when you fold on your GPU? In my case, it still took up a good chunk of CPU load.... I had to stop folding on one CPU core to have my X1900 fold...

Hi jrabb,

I agree!
Quote: "Actually it would be cheaper to add the GPU's than to make up new rigs".

I just priced some stuff on pricegrabber.
ASUS A8N32 Sli Deluxe w/ PCIe x16 Socket 939 = $97.85 USD
ATI X1900XTX = $359.00 USD
Total = $457.00 USD

ASUS P5W DH = $224.00 USD
E6300 = $183.00 or
E6400 = $222 USD
X1900XTX = $359 USD
Total = $766 or $805 USD

Going with the gpu and new M/B for me makes sense, right now...

Thanks again, :-)

I think the OCN Folding rules need an update. The GPU client paired with quad-cores is changing the folding landscape

I think the rules are just fine. Most members will not get Quad Core. They can fold on two cores (or three) and on the remaining core(s) for themselves.

Also, I think the Quad Core owners will probably stay on their own, and not join a team.

I do agree, however, that we need clarity on the GPU folding issue.

Hi chozart,

I agree. In all fairness to the team competition theme, honesty is the best policy, I think...

As for the gpu folding. As I stated, I might take my AMD64 3500+ and pair it with an X1900XT and M/B for folding. This rig would fold only. No other activity on it. So for me the instability when folding with the cpu would not be a problem, I think.

Thanks and take care, :-)
