Rightclick the SMP shortcut you've created. (If you haven't made one, do it now )

Go to the properties, and in the target section, at the end, add in [space]-smp, like shown below.

The benefit of this is you will get SMP WUs which utilize all your cores. The downside of this si that if you don't fold 24/7 (or close to it) you can miss the deadline for completing the WU.

I've been trying to find some PPD values for a 4850 using the latest ATI drivers, but haven't found any.

Can anybody help?

Might not be the latest drivers, but they wouldn't make too much PPD difference.

Go to the place you installed the SMP client, then make a shortcut of the .exe to your desktop or your startup folder; whereever you want. The follow the steps above

I installed the system tray program. I don't have an SMP one?

Download the client from here:

The .exe from that package is expired however, and you need to replace it with this one:

You're running the non-SMP client and Zodac is linking you to the SMP Console client and the fixed .exe since you want to fold SMP WUs. Don't worry, it's complicated to understand how this works at first, but you'll get it.

Basically, what these people are saying is that if you run the SMP client of Folding@Home, it'll utilize your CPU more and you can complete a WU quicker on your CPU, since it utilizes more of your CPU. And it takes me roughly 20 hours in order to finish 1 WU on my CPU, it's just like that so don't worry if it feels like it's taking a long time.

Yes, as JonC04 said, there are different types of CPU folding clients: The system tray one (which you are running) and the SMP client, and also, VMware clients.

Each system tray client uses one core, so you could use multiple tray clients to get the most out of your CPU.

The next type is the SMP client. If run normally, without any flags, it works the same the system tray client. If you do put the -smp flag on, then it will work as an SMP client. It will download specific WUs and will use all of your cores. Gives better PPD than the tray client, but has shorter deadlines (normally 1 week, whereas the tray client has a 1 month deadline on average)

The last type is a VMware client. This involves running a virtual machine on your computer; a computer in a computer if you will. You boot into Linux on the VMware client. This is because Linux folds on the CPU better than Windows does (though not as well with GPU folding, which is more important). Once set up, a VMware client can either run on 2 cores, or 4 cores (or 2x2cores if you want). While slightly trickier to set up, they give much better PPD than the previous clients.

For now, try and set up the SMP client with the -smp flag. if you come into more issues, we'll get you started on a VMware client
