So, I believe you would have to run a single instance of the FAH program. If I understand correctly.
Gibson, I believe when Taeric said "Stats page on Stanford must show exactly 1 CPU in last 7 days (to verify the system limit)" he meant to show only one QUAD. Because that's the very purpose of this whole thing. To allow quads to fold. Their limits will be throttled down to 2000 ppd.
I think this is great news for those that have wanted to fold with a quad. I might even buy one now. I believe that progress is always a good thing
But that's good to know that a quad shows up as 2 "active processors".
Just my 2 cents worth. I think 2300 - 2400 would be a better figure because that equals about 17,000 points per week; which is what a decent dual core scores.Edited by JadeMiner - 5/29/08 at 3:25pm
