Which CPU is best for folding? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
GPU Folding is HORRID. Can lag your system.

the best would be kentsfield in 64bit linux running the smp client. That isn't exactly cheap so core2duo would be great also.

The output is phenomenal... but it does lag!

Do fold at 75% if you plan to do it, not 100%. Makes quite a difference. I went back to CPU folding though... the client was too buggy for me.
