I split the SMP's.
1st SMP running on cores 0 & 1 (Normal Priority - when I am not gaming)
2nd SMP running on cores 2 & 3 (Normal Priority - when I am not gaming)
GPU2 running on all four cores (High Priority - when I am not gaming)
At least that is what gets me the most points from my sig rig.
I have attached a pic to show give an example.
SMP by itself on my Phenoms get 16xx PPD per SMP. GPU by itself gets 17xx-19xx PPD (with a single core feeding it). I have found the best combination that works for me and that gives me the most points is shown in the following pic and listed above. Setting the priority to Normal for the SMP clients at least give it an advatage over all of the other background processes running so that will result in a higher PPD. Setting the GPU2 client to High priority allows it to run at almost full PPD and only take a little bit away from the SMP clients, but not enough to matter. Of course if you game or do anything else that is resource intensive you will have the lower the priorities.
Anyway hopes this helps some.Edited by BenBrown - 7/1/08 at 11:44am
