So, it's been a while since I've done any Folding, and I've got a few questions on how best to get back into things:
- For the v7 client, you used to have to dedicate a single CPU core if Folding on CPU & GPU at the same time. I assume this is still the case?
- With the above in mind, I tried setting up my CPU slot with 5 cores, but I couldn't download any WUs to work on. I had to drop to just 4 cores before I could Fold. Is it a known limitation that a 5-core slot won't download anything?
- There used to be a slight benefit by setting the affinity of your FahCore processes on separate cores (so GPU affinity set to core #0, CPU affinity set to core #1-#4, for example). Is this still worth doing, or are the benefits minimal?
- Any significant PPD gains by running the CPU client in a Linux virtual machine? It used to be worth it with the older WUs, but not sure if it's necessary anymore. Is anyone doing it now and have some results to share?
