Your average time to complete a WU? - Page 3

This protein is friggin huge in comparison too. ;p

If they're using the same client I still think the average times people are posting are decent indicators to their system speed. People with e6600's for example posted around a day per work unit. More or less depending on whether they had over clocked or not.
I do agree that you should be able to get a rough estimate of SMP WU times. The problem you run into is when people start comparing different processors and different WUs. An example of this is the E6600 and E6400. If they are both clocked to 3.4 Ghz, some WUs will take about the same time on both, and some will take twice as long on the E6400. This is because of the differences in the L2 cache which some WUs can get bottlenecked by, while others do not.

Your assumption of more or less a day per WU for SMP is pretty good for a C2D, especially if you are new to folding. After a while you will get a feel for which ones are faster, which ones are slower, and how long they should take on your particular setup.

This should have a sticky. I was wondering like crazy how long it would take my cheap little box to do one of these.
