using v7 Clients on a Q6600 and 8800GT

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have just recently started folding again after a two year absence and was wondering what the best client version for my set up would be, I'm currently folding using the v6 clients on both my 8800GT and my Q6600 and I'm getting a quite respectable 12,500PPD which has seen me smash my monthly record in just on day. What I would like to know is would I get more points if I folded using a v7 client or are they designed for use with newer hardware?

PPD probably wouldn't be much different. If you really want to get everything out of it you can, install VMware Player (v3.0.0), install Ubunut, and do CPU Folding on that. :)

I think thats probably on the higher end of the points you will see. If you go the linux VM route you will gain more points from your CPU but lose points on your GPU. Depends what the spread of points are for each component.

Well currently when my CPU client completes a WU it gives my a point total of around 9000 though it takes 1day and 6 hours to complete, HFM says it's around 7000 PPD where as my GPU only give me 353 or 508 total points per WU depending on batch, though this works out to be about 5500PPD. I don't mind losing on my GPU if I gain more then what I lose on my CPU, what if I had a duel boot so that when I folded I booted into ubuntu would that save me from losing points on my GPU?
