Questions about WUs

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok, so my rig in my sig is folding again...yay..

I have a 20,000,000 step WU on both cores (different Run #, and Clone #, and Gen #), but they both have the same project number..

They are different, correct?


Also, if it's a 20,000,000 step WU, that means it's a lot of points right? LOL

My 754 3000+ has never seen one this big anyways...usually like, 20,000 frames.

So, I just came upon another question as I typed : are frames (in graphical client), the same as steps (in console client)?

Hi BrinNutz,

To your first question. They are different. The project number just denotes which project the particular WU's belong too. Such as 1809, or 2124 etc.

As for the points they will probably be the same, but weighted based on the time it takes the Stanford benchmark computer to finish them. THe benchmark computer is a P4 2.8C or 200 fsb version. They didn't overclock it or anything either. Just a new install of Windows XP and the different project runs for timing or how long it takes and to set points based on those two criteria.

As for the 20,000,000 step vs 20,000 frames. They are one and the same. In the console or graphical client the notepad shows it as 20,000,000 but it's really 20,000.000 Later on you might see a 1809 WU project listed as 500,000, but it's only 500 and 153 points.

If you want to see what the points are worth for a given project, you can check this link and see where your project is listed.

You'll want to look at the credit column for the points a WU is worth...

I hope this helped, :-)
