if you use a Virtual Machine using Sun VirtualBox (free) you can setup all 8 threads in 1 VM and my i7 @ 4.2Ghz is getting ~10.5k PPD by using Linux, 1k is a bit of a disgrace for that CPU
Well I knew vmware would boost it but I was told in this forum it would only double. I am only quad threaded but even 5k would be great. I will be getting this working today. Also for folding I can run 715 core and 1600 shaders 1200 mem, crashed once though so been using 715, 1570, 1150 24/7.
