Good job guys!
Hey Blankthis..The reason for the cap was because they realized after a while that the gpu is very powerful tool for folding..as you can see that a good card you can get 5k+..compare to a older cpu that could only do one unit at a time for that day.
So to keep it competitive they put a cap on so that for the smaller folder would have a chance in keeping up..But now that cpu are getting better for ex: I had a e6850 when I started to fold. While overclocked I was able to finish a unit in 16hr or so..But now with a e8600 oc'ed I can finish at below 12hrs.
So to make it fair they raised the cap from 2000ppd to 2500ppd..That is why some teams would ask for a folder that has a good chip and can finish two units in 24hrs.
They are some of us that would like to be in a team for the fun and to be competitive at the same time. The was put in so the the guy that doesn't have a very powerful rig can still join in for the fun in being in a team...
