Orrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr - You can do both, Boinc-athons and Foldathons.

Pretty much what I do myself.... BOINC runs when I'm not gaming, and when it isn't a Foldathon. Folding@Home is great, but BOINC doesn't have that QRB nagging at you if you want to hop on a game right this moment, because you get the same amount of points provided you turn the tasks in before the deadline.

I still have 2 GPUs on FAH, one of them for TC. But since FAH can't do crap on CPUs even with SMP I put them all to use on BOINC.

I'll still be doing Foldathons....during other times I think I'll crunch instead. But, since this is the period of higher summer electric rates, I'm limiting myself to only special events until summer is over.

I'd love to do the same myself (if I had extra GPU's), but I'm limited in the amount of circuits I have to use and even a single GTX 980 can heat up the living room pretty quickly. CPU on the other hand, with Folding@Home you don't have anywhere near the.... Selection BOINC has for what you can put your power towards. ^_^;;; Being able to pause work for a few hours of gameplay and then resume it as if nothing had happened is rather nice.

It's the QRB that keeps me away from folding regularly. And that I am more interested in astronomy stuff. I still do the foldathons though. But the QRB just seems unfair to me if you can't afford high-tier hardware. Correct me if I am wrong please.

I'd say you pretty much hit the nail on the head. QRB puts the focus right on "dedicate as much hardware as you can" as opposed to "use as much as you can when it's possible".

Quick return bonus. Basically, with Folding@Home you get base points, and then a qrb is added on top (usually much larger than the base points), rewarding those with higher end hardware more because their gear (especially graphics cards) can crunch through it faster.

Thankfully BOINC does not have this. Sure, you still have a higher PPD with higher end gear, but it isn't an astronomical difference that leads to statements like "it is pointless to fold on a cpu because even a low end gpu like the 750 Ti can get twice the ppd for less power consumed".

QRB came about when running several SMP WUs on the same CPU yielded more PPD than a single SMP WU. When the Q66 was king of value PPD it was popular to run a Q66 with 2 VMs at SMP2 each instead of SMP4 at the native OS level. Due to the Q66's design it was actually 2 physical die in one package with an interlink between them. The OS saw 4 cores but there was a performance hit when a workload got moved from one die over to another die. So PPD suffered when the threads got moved around as data had to be moved as well since there wasn't a shared cache with direct access. More work was done in the same time frame, more PPD was available that way but it wasn't the best for science. Since FAH is so linear in that one set of WUs needs to be completed before more can be sent out Stanford created QRB to give the incentive to complete work faster.

A QRB would end bunkering in an event though. For Boinc though I don't see as much of a need to get certain work done before the next set can be completed so the requirement for QRB is not there.

The difference in CPU vs GPU PPD has nothing to do with QRB though. FAH is simulating many thousands of points (atoms) in 3D space/fluid and they move around based on conditions of the protein and their environment. Calculating vectors is a lot better suited for GPUs than CPUs and GPUs are higher parrallelized for this type of work. QRB or not they would rock CPUs but since QRB is better than the linear PPD of just completing more work faster it gets accentuated a lot more.
