hahaha im such a rookie
It should be a noticable increase in the GPUs efficiency. I would like to hear back the PPD estimates on your 7850, I've heard of 7870s getting up to around 65k PPD on the beta core 17 WUs.
It should also slightly help your CPU because the core 17 Work Units are less CPU intense on the AMD cards, vs the old core 16 Work Units that would pretty much require dedicated one of your CPU cores to GPU folding in order to optimize your PPD. Running core 17 GPU Work Units, you should be able to still use all your cores on your CPU, and not worry about the impact from GPU folding too.
