Q6600 Points/Day? - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Overclocked, lets say 3.0 to 3.4ghz I would say the overall averages between slower and faster WUs would be:

WinSMP : 3000ppd
2 X VMWare 3500ppd
2 X Native Linux = 3800ppd

Those are estimates, will be more or less based on your overclock and settings, but should give you the general idea.

but if you really want to know check out knitelife's folding farm of Q6600s....one of his is OCd to 4.1Ghz stable on phase, and folds 24/7 for 4000+ppd

@stock I think i was pulling about 2.5k ppd in SMP...
With VMware you will only be able to utilize two cores per virtual machine. You can run multiple virtual machines, but, I'm not sure if that will allow you to utilize all four cores.

I'm going to try it when I get my quad next month.
(or, you can do it for me )

So, you can run two instances of VMware? How much ram does that use?

How come the Quads fold so fast?

You will need about ~512mb per instance, so a ~1gb.

Thaks a lot. Still I find the Q6600 quite obviously the most sensible choice.

With the imminent price drops and G0 steppings on the horizon, quad cores will soon dominate the folding scene. At $500+, there weren't enough in use to make a major impact, but in the $300 range (less than the initial price of a E6600), I fully expect to see many in service very soon.

I agree. I'm going to sell my X6800 on Ebay and buy two. My folding will more than double. (of course that will kick me out of the competition )

There's nothing stopping you from splitting off a couple of cores for the team competition and lumping the remainder. Take a look at Team Folders Inc., which has put their "extra" cores to very good use.
