Typically low PPD somehow spiked?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I normally get about 20-25k PPD on my 4.6GHz i7 but somehow I managed to spike 50k a couple days ago. I tried looking through the log and I'm not sure what I'm looking for. What am I doing wrong or did I just get lucky?

You may have just pulled a WU that simply gave you more points for completing it! Unfortinatly, the assignment of them can be a bit random. Id suggest you add the "client-type beta" flag. Instructions, post #4:

in the top field put "client-type" and in the 2nd, put "beta".

Many of the beta units tend to give better PPD>

Are you thinking of the new GPU projects? I don't recall seeing very many beta release threads for CPU projects with people saying those projects are overvalued; in fact, I think a decent proportion of them have people saying they're undervalued compared to what they're used to seeing.

Really? Doubled PPD was just a fluke? I was afraid of this... D:
I've always felt like my PPD was low but I've run through the guides and I can't seem to get the average any higher. Its always spikes on certain projects that get any higher than 25k PPD. If anyone has a similar setup to mine, shoot me some tips biggrin.gif

If that's just the 2600k, then it doesn't sound low. I have a 3770k running at 4.3 GHz and it usually ranges between 18-24k PPD.

You would do better running Linux, as the Linux CPU core is faster than the Windows version.
